Precast Concrete Terracing Units
Precast Terracing Units generally span between raker beams up to a maximum of 7 or 8m span. Raker beams can be of steel or concrete but must have a suitable bearing seat for the terrace unit. Typically terrace units are "L" or "T" shaped in section with varying rise heights and goings. Proprietary lifting anchors are cast into the units for quick and safe handling and erection.
- Vomitory and Perimeter Walls
-- Vomitories which provide for safe movement of spectators between seating and concourse areas beneath terraces are formed from concrete walls which are supported either on the frame or concourse floor.
-- Wall sections are usually jointed to allow easy handling and transportation of the units. The vomitory walls themselves can provide support to adjacent terrace and walkway units usually by steel brackets fixed to the walls. Additional walls may required around the playing area or at the rear of a terrace. Ebor will design and manufacture these as as an integral part of any grandstand.
- Stairs and Step blocks
Stairs for access and egress to the terrace and concourse areas are a fundamental part of any stadium structure. More details of what Ebor Concretes can provide can be found on our "Precast Concrete Stairs" page.
Typically, the rise between terrace units will be about 350mm. For safe movement of spectators up and down the terrace, the rise needs to be about 175mm and step blocks are provided which sit on the terrace units to achieve this.
- Raker Beams
Where concrete raker beams are specified, Ebor can design and supply these with the requisite bearing for terracing units.
- Walkways, Disabled Seating Areas and Balconies
A typical terrace will include walkways for spectator movement, balcony walls and variety of other "special" units for areas such as disabled access and seating.
