compact folding seating
Seating that is compact while also being flexible and durable in space-limited areas is difficult. Compact jump seat chairs provide comfortable folding seats for healthcare, education, and corporations that maximize space by folding up to a profile of just four inches. The seats have a wide variety of applications including patient rooms, waiting rooms, and other areas where space is constrained.
Compact jump seat chairs can be used in any environment that requires condensed seating. Flex springs are based on the movements of the spine and cantilever into position using plywood slats instead of hinges or hardware. When the jump seats are up and not in use, the seats nearly disappear. Floor mounted, wall-mounted, unmounted, or a combination of these options are all available depending on your specific seating needs. Read more about fold-down seating here.
specifications & applications
Each seat includes a 1" upholstered fixed seat cushion and 1/4" upholstered fixed back cushions for added comfort. Multiple types of finishes, textiles, and surfaces are available, including laminate, wood stain, or veneer. Each seat can hold up to 600 pounds. Antimicrobial product protection in the wood finish provides extra protection from damaging microbes that can cause stains, odor, and deterioration. Additional options such as armrests, movable bases for ease of reconfiguration, and 3D upholstery are also available.
Just a few of the applications where compact jump seat chairs can be used include:
- Temporary short term lecture hall seating
- Corridor and conference room overflow seating
- Inside patient room seating
- Seating at the ends of book shelves and ranges
- Reception areas
- Waiting rooms
- Narrow corridors
- Small, space-constrained offices
Types Of compact jump seat chair Configurations
Unmounted compact jump seat chairs are ideal for spaces that require flexibility and are available with fixed or movable bases. Each chair sits at a compact 10-degree pitch and the fixed base features center-to-center seat spacing that makes them perfect for lecture halls, auditoriums, and reception areas.
Wall-mounted folding seats cantilever off the walls and fold into four inches of space, which makes them ideal for corridors, patient waiting rooms, and other public areas where space is at a premium. The chair is mounted 6" off the floor for ease of cleaning.
Floor-mounted options provide the same space-saving benefits of the unmounted and wall-mounted options. They sit at 90 degrees and can be mounted to the floor and flush to a wall or used with a movable base. They are ideal to use as additional seating in narrow corridors, boardrooms, small offices, and library stacks.
