Gymnasium Bleachers are widely used in high school football fields and gymnasiums around the country, yet there are inherent safety risks to their use. As a result, more and more school districts are installing bleacher enclosure covers to protect spectators from potential mishaps. Bleacher tarps work by providing a barrier, or wall, between the open spaces on bleachers and spectators. The tarp is typically used to completely enclose the back and sides of bleachers to prevent people from walking underneath the seats. Schools that have installed bleacher enclosures have seen a reduction in the amount of accidents occurring because of open bleachers. The enclosures also discourage vandalism and help protect the bleachers themselves.
Bleacher curtains are designed to be used for both indoor and outdoor settings. They are made of sturdy vinyl material that resists tearing and cracking; curtains used for outdoor bleachers are often constructed of vinyl-coated mesh, in particular, to better resist moisture and other environmental conditions. Bleacher curtains can be custom fabricated to the exact dimensions of bleacher seats, and feature sewn hems on all sides with built-in brass grommets. As an added feature, bleacher enclosures come in a variety of colors and can be imprinted with a team logo or mascot to enhance or complement the overall aesthetics of a gym or school field. For these reasons and more, the use of bleacher enclosures continues to be widespread.
