Using heavier gauge steel, heftier understructure, and superior design, the Kodiak Seating System is built to be the sturdiest and best performing bleacher in the industry.

A. Posi-Drive Electric Operation: The Kodiak Seating System uses self-weighted independently hinged tractors, the best in the industry. Posi-Drive systems are installed on 3-30 row bleachers on both wood and synthetic floors.

B. Wheels: 4” x 1-1/4” diameter soft nonmarring wheels. 8-12 per row for a sure footing and consistently smooth pulls.

C. One Piece Wheel Channels: 1 piece 11 gauge C-channel gives you precise wheel alignment and maximum rigidity. Heaviest in the industry.

D. Posi-Slide Rod-Guide System: Ensures a straight and smooth pull every time. Captive 1/2” cold-rolled steel rod. Heaviest in the industry.

E. Row Locks: Kodiak Seating's 1/4" steel row-locks automatically engage and release for controlled operation every time. Heaviest in the industry.

F. Vertical Support Columns: Minimum size is 11 gauge closed-seam structural steel tubing 1.5" x 3", with 1.5" x 4.5" when required. Heaviest in the industry.

G. Steel Angle Sway Bracing: Kodiak Seating's angle iron steel bracing gives superior support over flat steel bracing or formed steel, 1.5" x 1.5" x 1/8" to 3.5" x 3.5" x 1/4" with additional bracing on higher rowinstallations as required. Heaviest in the industry.

H. Posi-Roll Upper Guide System: Nylon roller ensures a straight and smooth pull every time.

I. Seat and Deck Brackets: 7, 10, & 12 gauge steel. Heaviest in the industry.

J. Decking: Exterior Fir Plywood finished with Panelam, 30mill HDPE Laminate.

Kodiak Seating gives you the peace of mind that comes from knowing that not only will your spectator seating pass all prevailing building codes and stand up to routine heavy use; it will also pass the most important test of all: THE TEST OF TIME!

Our team will work closely with you in designing a system that will satisfy your needs and keep set-up time to a minimum.

A limitless range of system configurations including truncations, recoverable sections, and various ADA options gives you all the flexibility you need for now and tomorrow. All integrated into the only bleacher on the market that is made "Kodiak Strong".

Portable hydraulic dollies are provided for transporting bleachers to various spectator or storage areas. Manual operation only. Check floor condition and consult factory regarding point loads.

D. Recessed System: This system requires minimal clearance to fit under a balcony overhang, thereby allowing total utilization available playing surface. Up to 30 rows can be specified with this system (over 30 rows consult the factory). Closes from the first to last (top) row. Electric or manual operation.

Custom Seating Arrangements are Available!

Reverse-Fold/Delayed Action: Same as reverse-fold except when bleachers are folder into a closed position the bleachers move forward to recover the front aisle area, resulting in additional usable space behind the closed bleacher.

Elevated Front and Rear Walkways: To improve sightlines or comply with code.

Cut-Outs: For columns that extend out from a wall.

A Range of Seating Options and Strategies your choice in comfort, seating capacity, and economy.

Accessories & ADA

Fixed ADA cut-outs: non recoverable ADA cut-outs are available in either 1 or 2 rows deep. Place these at the corners of any section for your most economical and convenient solutionwith no additional set up.

Recoverable ADA cut-outs: can be placed at the corners of any section, in 1 row deep configurations. They can be locked to the first row when not needed for ADA seating, providing the full recoverability of valuable seating space, and because they are locked to the front row, you only set them up when needed.

Full section 1st row Truncations: Available in permanent and recoverable configurations from 12-20 feet. Full section truncations offer flexibility of use and ease of set up. For maximum convenience, Kodiak Seating recommends a maximum of 1 truncated section per bleacher area. The Kodiak Seating approach to full section truncations allows for tractor placement under the first row (not second), greatly reducing set up time. (No inconvenient manual first row on electrically operated bleachers as with other manufacturers systems)

Common Kodiak Seating Options and Accessories

Self Storing End Rails: Eliminate storage needs with the self storing end rail. Adds 12" to each end of the bank length.

End Panels: Keep unwanted material from getting behind bleachers in the stored position by adding End Panels to the back wall on either side of the bleacher bank.

Rear Panels: Keep unwanted material from getting under bleachers - ideal for reverse folding configuration.

Scorers Tables: Standard Size 96" (2349 mm) x 15" (381 mm)

Hydraulic Transporters: For portable configurations only.

Vinyl End Closures (VEC): Keep unwanted material from getting under the bleachers while it is extended or retracted. Made with heavy duty vinyl coated polyester, the closure is able to flex and fold with the bleachers every move.

Mark II: Portable Electric Tractor - Add the ease of electric operation to manually operated bleachers. Ideal for medium sized bleachers up to 13 rows.
