Gideon Hausner, USA


With rapid growth, Gideon Hausner had a desperate need to expand their facilities. The lack of gymnasium/theatre space prevented the school from hosting their own home games and productions.



Hussey Seatway’s TP telescopic system was the ideal solution. We designed a telescopic seating unit with an extensive range of features to meet the customer’s exact specifications. The seating system features soft-start power operation, intermediate steps with aisle lights. To ensure that the seating could quickly and easily be configured to accommodate both sporting and other events, an electronic partial opening selection was installed allowing the unit to be opened to pre-set configurations at the touch of a button.

The platforms feature self-storing side rails and removable front rails, both with tinted acrylic infill panels, as well as twist & store P rails in the aisles. The platform decks are carpeted as standard and the system features laminate fascias to improve the appearance of the unit when closed. Fully upholstered Gallery 3 chairs were the specified seating type, chosen to provide outstanding levels of comfort and high specification finish. The chairs feature wooden arms and automatic operation dual action gas struts. Custom brushed aluminium donor plates were also installed to the customer’s requirements.

“Excellent job! Everyone at the school was blown away. I want to thank you for all the effort that went in to making this happen. The selective opening piston system is brilliant.”
