Fold Down Seating

The Principal chair is an integral part of our fold down seating range. Perfectly suited to use in schools, colleges and multi-purpose venues, the Principal is wonderfully adaptable.

Mounted on our telescopic platforms the fold down chairs store within the envelope of the retractable unit when closed. The stored unit then folds away freeing up the space perfectly for exams, drama or even as a lunch hall.

Simplicity is the key for the Principal chair, a comfortable seat and back cushion is the foundation of the chair. A lot of our customers add arms give the chair even more of a theatre feel, they also add comfort.

Adapt the size of the chair to fit your space for maximum flexibility.

Versatile Seating

Today’s modern requirement is for products to be fit for use as well as versatile.

The Principal chair fits this bill perfectly. Many venues have different chair types within their auditorium, we can help with this. The Principal can be used as a portable or floor fixed chair to give complete continuity of design.

Chairs are often made removable to the front of the unit, this facilitates provision of wheelchair bound users.

Because all spaces are different, we don’t make our chair the same size. We are not bound by limitations on seat centres, we make seats to fit your space for a better result. Larger centre chairs offer greater comfort and enhance the user experience.

It is often the case that capacity is an important factor, our skilled team can advise on the best use of space. We are experts in auditorium design, maximising use of your space whilst achieving best sight lines and comfort.
