With an announcement imminent from Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries, allowing Premier League and EFL clubs to install sections of safe standing barrier seats in grounds during the second half of this season, GL Stadia is already poised to commence rail seat installation for several Premier League clubs.
GL’s innovative GL-R Rail Seat, developed in partnership with its long-term stadium seating partner, KH Seating, has benefited from design input from GL’s footballing clients as well as fan groups which have long been calling for designated safe standing areas at UK clubs.
Scott Jameson, MD for GL events UK comments: “Over the last ten years, our Stadia team has developed in experience and built a strong reputation amongst clients including Watford FC, Barnet FC, Exeter FC, and Plymouth Argyle FC, for intelligent design, rigorous project management, and cost-effective delivery of start-to-finish solutions. Thanks to significant R&D over the last 18 months, we are pleased to offer the stadium market an impressive and diverse portfolio of new products including a range of general admission seating, barrier seating, several products for the executive and VIP market, not to mention our new portable modular stand which provides clubs with instant increased capacity.
GL Stadia Business Development Manager, Simon Wake, commented; “The GL offering is generating quite a buzz at the moment, and appeals to a wide range of clubs because of its ability to be retrofitted, with minimal cost, commitment and disruption. We have also developed a number of product variations – allowing the rail to span either one or two seats so we are able to give our clients more personal choice.
“At the end of the day, our clients are choosing to work with GL Stadia because not only do we have a wide range of products to suit every pocket, which are robust and future proofed – thanks to our ability to manufacture spares and replacement plastics – but because we are reliable and efficient in our delivery and ultimately responsive to our customers’ needs. We will deliver – and most importantly we won’t leave you or your fans in the lurch.”
GL Stadia is offering clubs a free safe seating audit where we can discuss your requirements and the constraints of your ground. For more details or to arrange a visit, get in touch with Simon Wake or call 01332 819 352.
