To coincide with its 50th anniversary celebrations, the seating company Zoeftig has launched its latest seating solution for the airport sector at this year’s Passenger Terminal World Expo and Conference at the ExCel in London.
Contact, as the airport seating solution has been named, is an innovative piece of furniture that is ideal for any waiting area thanks to its modular design and clever engineering. The seating system can be specified with a choice of sizes and range of seat centres so that it can be adapted for the needs of individual terminal spaces. And unlike conventional airport seating, it can be installed in any configuration, with flexible spacing and positioning between one piece seat shells, arm rests and tables. It also facilitates the opportunity for back-to-back seating, rows or modules of seats and tables, with the ability to reconfigure the seating at any stage during its lifetime.
“Contact has been designed as an entry level, low cost and simple construction that is already proving popular, with our first roll out taking place in Gabon, Africa, in April,” said Tom Arthur, Zoeftig’s design office manager. “Contact is different to other offerings because of its extruding beam to which the seats are clipped on.”
The seating is available in PU, upholstered or perforated steel, with powder coated aluminium arms and legs, which can be adapted to allow for various sizes of spacing between the seating solutions. In-seat power sockets are also available for on-the-go charging.
For larger terminal spaces, Contact Plus offers a wider seat than the standard Contact size.
