Retractable Seating

Hussey Seatway is pleased to announce the successful completion of their latest international project at SOSU C in Copenhagen. SOSU C welcomes a total of 5000 students a year.  It is one of the largest Health Care Colleges in Denmark offering vocational education and training.

Working closely with our Danish partner Houmoller Contracts Aps and BBP Architects we were awarded the contract to supply a high specification Telescopic seating system for one of the Colleges new lecture halls. To keep In touch with the contemporary appearance of the venue we supplied our Decra chair with solid Oak show panels.  The chair fold down mechanisms were fitted with concealed dual action gas struts to aid the lowering/raising of the chair banks which significantly reduces the setup time for the end user.

One of the architects key objectives was for the seating to ‘disappear’ when retracted. The telescopic system was designed and manufactured to precision to fit within the alcove at the back of the hall with minimal clearances. At the front of each row, we installed Oak fascia boards that directly match the appearance of the surrounding wall panels to ensure a clean and consistent finish.  

As you will see from the photos the results are spectacular, looking forward to our next project in Denmark which has already been confirmed for Spring 2017.
