Transforming lecture theatre’s with retractable seating from Hussey Seatway


With the increasing demand from schools, colleges and universities to maximise the use of their teaching and performance spaces we are pleased to offer a bespoke seating solution to meet these specific requirements.

Hussey Seatway retractable seating systems open and close automatically at the touch of a button, allowing a tiered lecture theatre to be transformed into a clear floor space within minutes. Our revolutionary scribe writing tablet is compatible with our Integra and Decra folding chairs and adds a further degree of flexibility to retractable seating. Specifically designed for bleacher applications, the scribe features a contemporary designed polymer folding writing ledge. The tablet features a ‘dampened’ return mechanism to ensure it returns to the stowed position in a controlled and safe fall and also an anti-panic device that automatically returns it to the closed position when the chair is vacated.

Whether you’re building a new lecture hall or refurbishing an existing classroom, our lecture seating can be tailored to suit specific design requirements. Hussey Seatway are the UK’s leading seating specialists for schools, academies, colleges, universities and further education facilities.
