The Difference is in the Detail

Premium Cast Aluminium Framed Seating

Why do Architects choose to specify the London and Madrid Series? Why are these cast aluminium seating products a better choice? The advantages are not just in the good looks – it also has to do with the detailed engineering of the products.

  • Stronger, thicker castings.
  • Dual fasteners at every slat fixing point providing double strength.
  • Heavy duty Ø50mm horizontal connector rail makes the whole assembly even stronger.
  • Can be placed free standing or bolted down.
  • Manufactured for stock (not per order) to enable short lead times and immediate delivery.
