A dugout, subs bench or team shelter is an integral part of a sports stadium designed to keep players and coaches covered, comfortable and dry. It also allows team personnel to be close enough to communicate with players.
At Stadium Solutions we can supply dugouts for any major sport. All our dugouts are built to the highest standards using durable, weather-resistant materials. Our dugouts have a very sturdy, robust design offering all round visibility and excellent pitch views through the clear polycarbonate curved sheet we use. This is UV resistant to prevent yellowing and is stronger than Perspex.
Each dugout can be customised to meet your needs. Our standard dugout design is for 8 people, but can be extended in modular units of 4, to increase to 12 people or more. This also means our design can grow with your club. Seat options can be bench style or tip-up seating. At Stadium Solutions we have our own in-house power coating unit, which means our dugouts can be customised in your club or team colour and we offer a wide range of colours for tip-up seating.
All our dugouts are supplied with or without wheels, so they can be stored and wheeled on to your pitch when needed, or alternatively fixed to a concrete base. The wheels are a very useful addition, if your pitch is in a public area and provide full portability. The wheels can also easily be removed for when the dugout is static.
We were promoted to Step 3 at the end of last season and to comply with FA regulations required an additional 100 covered seats. After getting three quotes it was decided to choose Stadium Solutions to provide the new stand. The main criteria in selecting them was the detailed quotation including calculations, drawings and photos of similar stands supplied to others. In addition, having already supplied several semi-pro clubs such as ourselves, we had confidence they would do a competent installation. The work was started on time and completed a week earlier than required. The site was kept tidy and all waste removed afterwards. We are very happy with the finished stand and would recommend any other club to come to Stadium Solutions. They have also installed two new dugouts and will shortly be installing three new turnstiles and gates to the players tunnel area.
