Rail Seating

Solutions for safe standing

Easy to retrofit or install into new facilities

The GL-R with independent barrier allows sports grounds to incorporate Safe Standing into their existing grandstands.

Following guidance from the Sports Ground Safety Authority, allowing the use of rail seats for fans to stand or sit safely. Subsequently, the GL-R Independent Barrier incorporates a robust metal barrier rail into the existing seating style.

Secondly, the horizontal rail provides a personal safety barrier for each row of fans, therefore allowing them to stand in a safe environment, with protection from crowd surges and other potentially dangerous behaviour.

While retrofitting the Independent Barrier effectively shields against fan surges during games. It also ensures that the cherished memories associated with existing club seats remain intact. This preservation of seating is paramount to loyal fans.

Consequently, there’s no need for seat removal. Instead, a handrail is carefully installed in front of the seats, in compliance with SGSA regulations.

Unobstructed views

Moreover, concerns regarding obstructed views of the pitch are addressed by the meticulous measurements undertaken by the Stadia by GL events team. In addition, the positioning of the barriers ensures an unimpeded view of the game.

Additionally, the handrail not only enhances safety but also seamlessly integrates with the aesthetics of the stand, thanks to Stadia by GL events’ customisable colour options.
