This type of seating unit is appropriate for sports complexes and arenas. It stands out due to its folding system, since the seat and backrest fit together perfectly. This feature allows for large dimensions when in use and very small dimensions in the folded position, thereby permitting a wide passage area between rows. The seat folding system is automatic, through a dual spring inserted into the seat.
The seat folding system is automatic, by means of a spring inserted into the seat. This spring is fully protected from external agents, self-lubricating, durable and extremely reliable.
The seat return also has a braking system that operates during the final part of the run, slowing down the return movement, and thus preventing the banging noise that is common in this type of product. This makes the seating a perfect choice for multipurpose spaces where sports events, concerts and theatre performances are staged.
The assembly consists of two separate seat and backrest elements fixed to a metal structure adapted to suit the characteristics of the seating tiers. With this system there is plenty of room between rows for user comfort. The folded seat has a depth of only 20cm.
The seat design is not only attractive in appearance, but also permits the perfect closure of the seat and backrest, so that the internal part is fully protected from sunlight, dust and dirt. The need for maintenance is considerably reduced. Furthermore, this design increases safety for users owing to the absence of protruding elements that could give rise to collisions or accidents. It is also vandal-proof.
The seat and backrest are made of copolymer polypropylene. There is recessed storage in the backrest into which a number plate can be fitted so that it cannot be pulled out. This system also ensures optimum visibility for the seat number. The seat has herringbone-patterned, non-slip ridging that helps to ensure that the occupant sits in the correct position.
The seat can be installed with a minimum distance between axes of 44.5cm and thereafter it can be increased at will. This is because the seats are assembled individually on a support bar, which gives great flexibility between axes and allows us to perfectly regulate the comfort level which we wish to offer users. The arms are also independent of the seat and can be positioned where we wish and at the distance deemed appropriate with respect to the seats.
The front part of the seat and rear part of the backrest have a space designed for inserting publicity or corporate images, normally on an adhesive screen print. This new way of using the seats turns them into a source of income for the owner of the facility. This space has been designed to take up to 50 adhesive units without the need to get rid of the old one before putting a new one in.
As an optional extra, the seat can be fitted with a cup holder that is located in the space at the back between one backrest and another so that it is easily accessible and does not spoil the visibility of the advertising inserted in the seat’s backrest. Shared or individual armrests can also be incorporated.
