Mount Vernon High School / Mount Vernon, IL
When the new Mount Vernon High School opened for classes in 2016 it did so with auditorium seating and gym bleachers from Irwin Seating Company. The bleachers in the competition gym has a seating capacity of 2,000. An additional 530 can be seated in the auxiliary gym on model 4500 retractable bleachers with Infinity Seat Modules. The competition gym is also installed with model 4500 bleachers but the sidelines feature a few rows of Integra chairs in front of the Infinity Seat Modules. You will note the school is using this premium seating as a fund raising opportunity and adding an after market name plate to some of the seating. In addition, the bleachers are provided with Smart Rails for quick storage and screen printed logo plates on the aisle ends of the plastic bench modules.
The Auditorium is installed with 635 model No. 188.8.131.52 Marquee theater chairs. The seating is provided with comfort curved solid maple arms, 100 sq. inch writing tablets, and maple veneer surfaced aisle insert panels. Backs and seats are upholstered with Designtex Closed Loop black fabric (discontinued) and the wood components are finished in No. 29 Cherry.
