Bleacher System

The new portable folding bleacher system from Pro-Bound Sports is a no-nonsense approach to bleacher design. It offers the customer exceptional features rarely seen before in this price range. S.A.T. (spring-assisted technology) allows for compact folding by one person without the complexity of accordion-style bleachers. Bleacher planks are made of high-quality, 14-gauge formed sheet steel. Planks are powder-painted per customer requirements. The support frames are constructed of steel angle and rectangular steel tubing. Each bleacher section comes in standard 12-foot lengths, with either five- or six-seat levels. Walk planks are double-wide to ensure firm footing.

Stray-Ball Boundaries

Athletic fields often are used simultaneously by different sports and activities. This situation can create interference and congestion. The Gill Ball Stops can prevent some of this chaos by constraining stray balls to respective fields. Time can be saved by not having to chase down errant shots on goal, etc. The 20-foot ball-stop system is available straight or rolled offset, fabricated from 4-inch-diameter, 1/8-inch wall 6061-T6 aluminum with 40-inch vertical galvanized-steel ground sleeves. Ball-stop netting features knotless weather-treated nylon with more than 200-pound breaking strength, supported by vinyl-coated steel cable. Net bottom unhooks for convenient passage.

Team up Your Football and Soccer

Many schools now insist that their "gooseneck" football goal posts have an 8-foot offset (previously 5 feet). The 8-foot offset allows them to install soccer goals under the football goal posts without having to swap them out, resulting in a no-hassle, dual-purpose field. To meet this need, Stackhouse offers the F8GPH-AL Aluminum Goal Post, featuring an 8-foot offset gooseneck, large-diameter aluminum tube construction (5-1/2-inch gooseneck, 4-inch crossbar and 2-1/2-inch uprights) to give the goal strength and durability while increasing ease of setup, and stock ground sleeves to maintain the option of taking the goals down.
