ARTS BY HUSSEY SEATWAY
Launched: 2003, with various updates since
Dimensions: The Arts Chair is available with seat centre measurements from
500-560mm (19.7-22in), and row rises from 245-300mm (9.6-11.8in).
Constructionmaterials: The seat and back structure is made from preformed
birch plywood, with fully contoured upholstery and solid wood armrests as standard.
Metalwork is finished in a satin black powder coat, and customers can choose fabric
upholstery from the Mainline Plus range by Camira or specify their own fabric.
Applications: The Arts chair is a platform model for theatres, black box studios
and conference venues. It is designed for use on Hussey Seatway TP retractable
platforms, and fixed and flat-floor versions are available.
Standardfeatures: The seat features armrests that fold automatically, and springactivated
tipping with a fully enclosed silent stop mechanism. The seat complies
with the EN 12727:2000 standards for strength and stability, and BS 5852:1990 (Source
0, 1 and 5) for the fire retardancy of its fabric and foam. The company says other codes
or European standards can be satisfied as required. The backrest is the only element
to fold into the platform, which Hussey Seatway says enables thicker foam to be
utilised, and allows for greater contouring of both the seat pan and backrest.
Customisation: Aspects that can be customised include the colour of the armrests
(from a standard range). Customers can also opt for seat numbers and row letters,
custom powder coat colours, show wood seat and back panels, LED aisle lights
and sponsor plaques. Arts PC is available with square or waterfall edges.
Rather than using jointed and bolted
space frames for its retractable seating,
Hussey Seatway uses a welded platform called
Seatway TP. “This provides a much more secure
and quiet platform, perfect for performing arts
environments,” says Joanna Palmer, marketing manager
at Hussey Seatway. “The system has full adjustability
to compensate for any deviances in the floor.
It is available in varying row rises and depths to
optimise sightlines and maximise the use of space.”
The raked, tiered seating system comes with
a 10-year warranty as standard.
