Benefits of Wall-mounted Folding Seats

Space Optimization

Wall-Mounted Seats VideoOne of the primary advantages of folding wall seating is the ability to optimize space in the office. The seats are mounted directly on the wall, and with a slim profile, they occupy only four inches of space when folded up, freeing up valuable floor space when not in use. Saving space is especially beneficial in areas with limited space or multi-functional needs. Whether in a compact office or a crowded waiting area, wall-mounted folding seats offer a practical seating solution without compromising available space.

Comfort and Ergonomics

While fold-down wall seating primarily focuses on space-saving functionality, the manufacturers also consider user comfort and ergonomics. The seats promote healthy posture and feature cushioning for enhanced comfort during extended use. By prioritizing comfort and ergonomics, the fold-up wall seats ensure that users can sit comfortably for extended periods, which makes the seats suitable for various applications.

Aesthetically Pleasing

wall mounted seatingWall-mounted seat options are available in various finishes and colors, allowing them to blend seamlessly with the office decor. Their ability to fold discreetly against the wall contributes to a clutter-free and visually pleasing environment when not in use. Compared to keeping stacks of seats cluttered around your office or space, wall-mounted folding seats are a much more appealing option.


Wall-mounted fold-down seating is an efficient solution when temporary seating is needed. The flip-down wall seats are convenient and intuitive to use. Since they mount on the wall, they save time compared to using temporary seats that must be carried in and arranged manually and then carried out again once they are no longer needed. These compact seating accommodations will save time and improve efficiency and productivity when accommodating extra guests or personnel in your space.


Folding wall-mounted seating offers versatility in terms of usage. These seats can be installed in meeting rooms, conference halls, training areas, waiting rooms, or any space that requires temporary seating arrangements. Their foldable nature allows for quick adjustments based on changing seating needs. And when they are no longer needed, the wall-mounted seats fold up to keep floor space accessible and usable.

Durable Construction

fold down seatingWall-mounted folding seats have the durability to stand up to regular use for the long term. The seats use durable steel and plywood designed for tensile strength and stability. The wall-mounted flip-down seats support up to 600 pounds each.

Easy Installation and Maintenance

Installing and maintaining the foldable wall seats is straightforward. You can install the seats yourself, as mounting hardware and installation instructions are included when you order wall-mounted seats.

Maintenance is also simple. The fold-out wall seats mount six inches off the floor to facilitate easy cleaning underneath. The fabric seats are cleaned with water-based cleaning agents or foam. The wall-mounted seats also come with antimicrobial product protection, which protects the seats from microbes that could cause odors, stains, and deterioration.

How Wall-mounted Seating Works

fold out wall seatsFolding wall seating mounts to the wall, with a slim seat that folds down when needed and automatically folds closed when not in use.

With a design inspired by elements of cantilever bridges and the human spine, this innovative seating solution combines compression and tensile strength in a plywood and steel folding mechanism that requires no hinges. With this mechanism of plywood slats, the seat cantilevers off the wall provide convenient and comfortable seating when needed.

When not used, the seat folds back up; its slim profile occupies only four inches of space. This makes wall-mounted folding seats an ideal solution for limited space, such as small offices, waiting rooms, hallways, and conference rooms. Visit our online store to see our office storage products.

“The team at Southwest Solutions were nothing short of fantastic. First meeting with Craig, I received a customized design, in person, based on my office needs while still maintaining an efficient layout and being cost effective. Craig explained everything clearly, allowing me to understand that as modular mill-work, I would be able to move it if I ever changed offices, but without the added sales pressure to immediately make a decision. Once I had decided, I worked with Chris who assisted in picking out the finishes and scheduling the delivery and installation. The professionalism of Craig and Chris spoke volumes and I would highly recommend anyone looking to transform or fit-out an office to contact Southwest Solutions.”
