Telescope seating

BOOSTING THE EFFICIENCY OF THE USE OF SPACE WITH RAITA SEATING SYSTEMS

Raita telescopic seating systems greatly boost the efficiency of conference, cultural, educational and sports facilities in comparison with venues with fixed seating systems. With a telescopic seating system, the utilisation rate of a room and the financial benefit increase. Lower heating and maintenance costs make telescopic seating more ecological than permanent seating.

The opening out and retraction of Raita seating is quick and easy. The wheel system and unique driving mechanism ensure that the surface of the floor does not get damaged.

For example, the retraction of the seating systems at the Energia Arena in Vantaa increases floor space by 2.3 times.

PRECISELY DESIGNED SEATING TECHNOLOGY

All Raita seating system options have a precisely designed and tested basic structure, which is tailored to the needs of the customer. Almost 40 years of experience, deep thought given to the basic structure of the different options and thorough testing guarantee that the systems will be reliable and durable for a very long time.

OPTIONS FOR SURFACE MATERIALS

Different kinds of material are available for the surfaces of Raita seating system aisles and stairs, and you can select the option most suitable for your needs. The surface material may be, for example, parquet, laminate, plastic, linoleum, textile or anti-slip plywood.

From our product range, you can choose different options based on style and need, from polypropylene cup-shaped seats to beautifully-lined plywood seats and stylish seating upholstered with top-quality textiles. The front surface of the seat elements is painted sheet steel as standard, but the elements can also be surfaced with, for example, painted or veneered MDF board.

INDIVIDUAL CREATION BASED ON YOUR WISHES

The manufacturing technology for Raita seating systems enables a tailored solution in terms of, for example, air-conditioning and acoustics. We also have different options for building VIP areas, technical areas for sound and lighting, TV camera spots, places for the disabled and other special requirements.

Raita seating systems can be equipped with, for example, stair and row number lights, seat and row numbering, walls on the sides and at the back, handrails and desks.

FUNCTIONALITY AND SAFETY

Raita seating systems can be opened out manually, with an electrical drive mechanism or on a motorised roller. The seating system drive mechanism is precise, reliable and extremely floor-friendly. The wheels on which a seating system is opened out and retracted are mounted on a spring-adjustable tandem frame. In use, the weight of the audience is distributed evenly over the seating system and not concentrated on small points on the floor.

In order to maximise the multifunctionality of the space, seating systems can be made so that they can be moved on a forklift truck, hand pallet truck, hydraulic moving device or air cushion.

Solutions related to the safety of the audience and user of the technology have been analysed and developed in co-operation with VTT Automaatio.
