“The finished seating systems have been well received by the College and are considered to be very functional, dependable and operationally easy to extend and retract. With three different systems installed, the seating units have provided versatility to the college in the main hall for cultural, arts and community events through the sports hall and the Science theatres for ease of operational change round and event options.

All in the service and systems provided into Bideford College through Hussey Seatway have proved to be excellent from the inception to operation”.

The requirement was for three different areas to be fitted with foldaway bleacher seating in the main hall, sports hall and drama theatre.

Hussey Seatway was chosen after a rigorous selection process to design, manufacture and install the required retractable seating systems.


In both the main hall and drama theatre, Seatway TP platform systems with accompanying Integra chairs were chosen due to the high specification finish, comfort and durability of the product. In the sports hall a 360 seat Maxam bleacher was installed with Courtside benches which retracts into a recess pocket when the seating is not required.

The completed building features state of the art facilities and the seating products that have been installed are key in the successful delivery of the college’s plans.
