With the increasing demand from customers to update their auditorium and retractable seating but with restricted facility budgets, the ability to transform existing seating through refurbishment is essential.
At Hussey Seatway, we are design experts and offer comprehensive refurbishment packages to restore and adapt existing retractable or fixed seating, enabling it to perform and look like new. We understand that each customer will have unique requirements and therefore following a site visit we will create a bespoke refurbishment package.
If the existing retractable structure is in good condition then the renovation will typically include aesthetic items such as the replacement or reupholstery of the seating, the provision of new carpet, trims and fascia’s and LED aisle lights. Additionally, to reduce setting and striking times, we can also convert manual units to electrically power operated units and replace removable rails systems with integral self-storing or folding rails.
We can also renovate existing theatre seating to a new, comfortable and hard wearing standard, which, will also comply with the latest fire and strength regulations. Back and seat shapes can be re-designed to produce a more contemporary feel.
This bespoke package is available for ours and other manufacturers seating. Please contact us to see how we can breathe new life into your existing seating.
