The auditorium is a place where people gather in a shared experience - be that work, learning or entertainment. Each venue is unique and as designers and manufacturers of seating solutions we are able to adapt and personalise our seating to reflect your brand and design brief.
Patrons will be seated for long periods of time with discomfort one of the top complaints for theatre and cinema goers. We design the seat's ergonomics using pressure mapping technology to ensure optimal pressure distribution and highest level of comfort and support in the specialist foams and construction methods we use.
Our seats are highly customisable - we manufacture planetarium seating, rocker backs and can match many design-brief features.
A variety of personalisation is available from wooden reveals, sponsor plates, embroidered logos and cup-holders to the world's strongest integrated writing tablet which is load tested to 240kg; ideal for hybrid performance / lecture auditoria.
Inclusivity is important and we offer chairs with ambient DDA access in addition to removable seating. Many of our seats have capacity to include integrated power for charging; or for auditoria with fixed writing ledges there is the option to install this discreetly into the structure of the writing surface.
We also manufacture seats on skids or casters which are perfect where flexible floor spaces are required from time to time. Seats on casters are easily operated by one person. We also manufacture bespoke trolleys for storage of removable seating.
You don't have to start from scratch to design your perfect seating, but if you're looking for something truly bespoke, we can help you design that too.
We take safety and testing very seriously. All auditorium seats have enclosed pivot blocks to negate any finger traps and we always recommend that you use a CRIB 5 (BS 5852) fabric. With hygiene and cleanliness a priority given recent events, consideration can be given to antibacterial upholstery like wipe clean faux leathers or treated fabrics.
Seating is tested both in-house and independently for fire safety, durability and acoustic properties - certification is available.
Your auditorium layout should conform to certain guidelines for fire escape and egress. Our seating design plans and layouts are free and use Technical Standards to ensure compliance with recommended guidelines.
Our seating can be affixed securely on flat, sloped or tiered structures. Some models can be installed onto the riser face leaving the floor area completely clear for thorough cleaning.
We manufacture and install tiering / raking systems constructed from steel and timber - structural calculations and load testing is included. Our system can be installed onto most floor types - including uneven surfaces - and can bridge existing ductwork or ventilation schemes.
