Sheridan’s electric fold-up curtain can be installed onto any existing platform truss – telescopic or fixed. Operated with a key-activated electric switch, the curtain raises or lowers with the touch of a button. Available in single-wall or double-wall models.

Walk-Draw Curtain

The most economical divider curtain to purchase and maintain, Sheridan’s walk-draw curtains can be operated and stacked in a small building recess or flat again the wall. Available in vinyl,  nylon mesh or any combination of the two.

Safety Devices

No one should have to miss out on the thrill of a moving performance, game-winning goal or inspiring presentation. That’s why Sheridan Seating proudly meets or exceeds industry standards in safety and accessibility on every install.

Not only that, but our fully ADA or RADA-compliant handrails are safe and stylish. Available in the painted finish of your choice, your seating system can be accented by a punch of colour in every row, or supporting by safety rails in muted tones that fade into the background.

End Rails
Sheridan Seating telescopic seating systems are installed with standard non-removable, self-storing rails for the ends of the bleacher platform systems.
Center Aisle Hand Rails
Available in P or D style, Sheridan Seating’s centre aisle hand rails are sturdy and user friendly. No removal required, they’re operable with the push of a button or in a simple pick-up and turn model. Removable options available when space limitations are a concern.
Back/Front Rails
Required for use on portable or reverse fold bleachers, back rails fill the space anywhere that the bleacher is not directly against the wall.
Removable ADA Rails
This rail is used for ADA spaces that are recoverable when needed for standard seating. Simply remove the rail and the space can be converted to standard seating.
Non-Removable ADA Rails
The NRADA rail is permanently attached to prevent falls from the deck behind permanent ADA seating. All of Sheridan’s ADA rails meet required American Disabilities Act codes.

Operating Devices

The Delay Action Frame is a great option for venues that want an extra level of protection on their seating system. This frame operates on a time lag before the bleachers begin to move into the open or closed position.

Delay Action Frame

Row Lock

Sheridan’s Row Lock is operated by gravity, with no springs needed. The row locking mechanism allows for the securement of any row in the open position so you can choose how many seats you’d like to make available. To prevent unwanted movement, the system is only operable upon unlocking and moving the first row of seats.

Manual operation is available for seating systems up to 15’ wide and 7 rows deep, and are installed with a standard operator handle. Easy to use, the operator handle hooks under the first row of bleachers and is used to guide the system sections in or out.

Manual systems can be upgraded with an optional Portable Power Tractor Mule. This bleacher mule is a safe and economical way for one person to make the job of opening and closing the bleachers easier and more efficient. Sheridan Seating’s Portable Power Tractor Mule operates on standard 115 volt 20 amp service.

Electric Friction Power

Our most requested operating system, Sheridan Seating’s friction drive system is the strongest on the market, able to push or pull up to 8,000 lbs. With higher horsepower and larger than average drive wheels (12” vs. industry-standard 4”), Sheridan’s friction drive system will ensure your venue turnover is quick and seamless – every time. Operable from a hand-held pendant control box with 3 phase, 208 volt, 60 Hz power and a left and right jog button to allow for straight and true steering when opening or closing the system.

Electric Non-Friction Power

This fully automated power system operates wall-attached, recessed or reverse-fold telescopic bleachers with the touch of a button. Typically recommended for larger telescopic seating systems, Sheridan’s non-friction drive system can move more rows faster and will less hassle than other options on the market – all without the need for traction force on your venue’s floor.
