Audience Systems is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of retractable and fixed seating for performing arts centers, schools, theaters and lecture theaters. Their retractable seating is manufactured to a high specification, with architectural level of finish to complement any interior. The system can be fitted with an elegant and durable range of chairs and benches, suitable for the most refined environments. They also manufacture seating for lecture theatres and traditional fixed auditoria.
Audience Systems’ retractable platforms are the perfect choice for performing arts and conference environments. Manufactured from high grade steel sections, the system has a distinctive solid feel when walked on, setting it apart from traditional “bleacher” systems, and is precision engineered for long life and low maintenance. The system can be completed with a range of high specification auditorium chairs, meaning most patrons are completely unaware they are sitting on a retractable system.
Recital retractable / fixed seating
Recital is an exciting concept – a great-looking auditorium chair that doesn’t look like it should fold down on retractable platforms – but it does! The chair features an elegant timber backrest with carefully styled upholstery, armrests and end panels. You don’t even have to make the compromise of having the chairs protruding from the front of the seating unit when closed – the clever folding mechanism means the whole chair can be contained within the platforms.
Espace retractable / fixed seating
The Espace is a classic design; the generous seat, back and armrests fold into a compact closed envelope making it ideal for fixed and retractable seating installations alike. The chair can be upgraded with a vast range of options, including elegant timber armrests and back panels, pocket-sprung seatpans and high backrests for extra comfort, or wraparound seat and back covers to prolong upholstery life.
Accolade retractable / fixed seating
Accolade is a really versatile chair offering a neat appearance, great space economy and good comfort. It’s popular with schools, community venues and arenas and can be fitted with plastic wrap-around panels for the outer surfaces of the seat and the back, which significantly prolong the life of the upholstery. It’s an ideal design for retractable and fixed seating installations alike, and can be fitted with armrests as an option.
Audience Systems’ upholstered benches are a great choice for schools and studio theatres, combining the solid, precision engineered feel of Audience Systems’ retractable platforms with the adaptability of a bench. Standard or enhanced versions are available, and the backrests fold down before the platforms retract.
Icon auditorium chairs
Icon is a versatile theater seat for fixed auditoria. It is designed to be customizable to fit each auditorium’s aesthetic – the specification of the armrests, end panels and backrest all being quite flexible – as are the choice of fabric and finishes. As a result, the chair works wonderfully in both traditional and contemporary auditoria.
Scholar Lecture Theater Seating
Scholar is a range of durable and versatile lecture theater seating. The system is designed to flex to fit any lecture theater – from flat or sloped auditoria to tiered rooms with high rises. The height of the chair back and the width of the chairs is fully adjustable to perfectly fit the space. The chair is fitted with our neat, reliable and fully enclosed pivot mechanism, and the writing tablet has an extremely durable finish and can be specified in plain or beautiful wood finishes.
