2 Answers | Asked by Amanda Brown on Jan 10, 2014

Answered by Karin Singleton on Jan 10, 2014

Hi Amanda, at my center, the platforms are placed against a wall on the short side and stacked like dominoes, flanked on one side by another wall and on the other by the risers. I have never heard of any problems with that arrangement. Karin Singleton www.meltnc.com
