A standing stadium terrace incorporates crush barriers and exit gangways. These are built into the REIDsteel stand so as to waste no standing spaces. If made in REIDsteel Terraces then they can be dismountable and relocatable. Such terracing can be open or covered.
REIDsteel standing football terracing is dual use. Because of its unique design, it can be changed to all seater simply by removing the crush barriers. Most stadiums are designed all seater from the start.
Simple football terracing goes all the way from the toe, at-or below ground level, to the back of the grandstand or stadium.
This is the most economic sort of stadium to make, to run, and to maintain. Have a good reason to diverge from this style.
The slope of the simple stadium terrace probably varies parabolically to maintain viewing standards throughout.
A simple stadium terrace may have a box level at the rear...
If space and styling requirements dictate, a two tier or multi tier stadium can be designed. The gain in the number of seats is actually quite small, but the increase in height, cost and running cost is greater.
REIDsteel can design and build you hospitality suites and boxes. A good reason to select multi tier grandstands is to incorporate mid-terrace hospitality boxes and suites, when there is a market for them.
Some multi tier stadium plans can incorporate REIDsteel mid terrace hospitality suites as well as the rear box level.
The design of corners of ball game grandstands can be filled in with a triangle, or segments, or even a ¼ circle, with seating terraces. But remember such seats cost 2 or 3 times as much as the straight runs, and are the least popular seats. Do you really want to pay 3 times as much for seats no-one wants? It is much better to make another couple of rows on the other stands.
In cricket or athletics, the angle between stands is 45° or even 36°, so the wedge is different. In temperate climates it can be in filled with seats. In hot tropical climates, it is best left open, or fitted with balconies and verandas.
Suitable stadium verandas and balconies, with large hospitality and office areas behind, can easily be built in the wedges between two simple grand stands.
Rather than waste money on expensive but unwanted infill seats in the corners, why not build highly desirable vertical grandstands, with restaurants, ball rooms, balconies, boxes all with a good view over the park?
A veranda can be set into a stadium terrace, providing excellent mid terrace access from the executive suites, ideal for a popular chairman and his VIP guests who want full participation with the fans. See the Notts County Derek Pavis Stand.
REIDsteel can build in the disabled zones, either at the toe or in mid terrace - or anywhere. In mid terrace, anywhere above ground level, REIDsteel can help design safe and cost effective access and exits for disabled fans.
