E&D Specialty Stands is a forerunner in the development and advancement of outdoor seating systems. Since 1956, our solid team of engineers have been designing and manufacturing bleachers, grandstands, press boxes and stadium seating for high schools, universities, baseball parks, speedways and more. If you have a small local football field or a grand scale raceway that needs seating E&D will work hand-in-hand with your budget and needs.


Sheridan manufactures the strongest, most durable retractable platform bleacher you will find. Our free-standing, four column understructure is the sturdiest on the market and our rugged engineering is an industry leader in the bleacher business.  All bleacher components are fabricated in our plant where they are stringently tested and inspected to ensure a safe, top quality seating system.

We produce custom sized platforms, retractable stages, bleachers and telescopic seating solutions. For those whose needs are not standard, we can accommodate you. You will not be required to design your facility around our products. You can be assured that we will build our product around your design

LynRus developed a new, automatically resetting basketball backstop safety strap, the Aut-O-Loc. The Aut-O-Loc soon became the industry standard for backstop safety.  Along with the success of the Aut-O-Loc, came redesigns and increased sales of our electric and manual hoists for the backstops.  The objective of all designs continued to be strength and durability and our products became the standard in the industry.

Today, LynRus Aluminum Products remains a leader in providing premier basketball backstop safety straps and hoists to the gymnasium industry. With unparalleled research, development and testing we are committed  the same quality, durability and safety that began over 60 years ago.  Our install-and-forget products will continue to stand the test of time for generations to come.
