Beam mount seating makes switching modular seats to change a venue's set up a far faster process. That faster installation means labor costs are significantly lower. The number of chairs per hour that can be installed or moved is far higher than with traditionally mounted seating.
In addition to fast installation times, beam mounted seats can be adjusted for fewer or additional seats in the case of a special event. For example, as host of Super Bowl LIV in 2020, U.S. Bank Stadium wanted to accommodate as many guests as possible. Ahead of the game, Irwin helped increase the seating capacity of the stadium by installing 2,000 more chairs into their beam mounted seating areas. After the big day, the extra chairs were removed to allow for more guest comfort during their regular season games.
While adding and removing beam mounted chairs isn't practical for regular venue changeovers, the increased capacity at U.S. Bank Stadium for the Big Game simply would not have been possible without beam mounted chairs. If your venue may be in the running for a large event like this in the future, beam mounted chairs can be a good option to offer expanded seating capacity without compromising guest comfort during regular events.
If your venue will need to change seating arrangements more regularly, we recommend looking into our VersaTract telescopic systems. U.S. Bank Stadium also features a custom telescopic seating section for additional seating flexibility.
