Freedman Seating at BusCon Expo
Along with a family of passenger and driver seats, Freedman Seating will introduce the SplitFlip Option and other innovations at this year’s BusCon Expo.
New SplitFlip Option
Provides optional versatility for bus seating configurations. The space saving flip-up feature can accommodate varying combinations for added aisle space, strollers, shopping carts and much more. Single flip-down motion returns seat to standard passenger seating position.
Meet the needs of all passengers with new priority seating vinyl. As the back cushion insert, Priority Vinyl comes as a standard smooth texture. It has been designed specifically to pair with bottom cushion inserts with Morbern’s Wave Freestyle Blue, a high quality vinyl with a soft hand and heavy woven-like embossing that adds to the texture and look of the fabric. Supplementary fabrics are available to meet any bus outfit as we continue to color-match additional vinyls.
Both Priority Vinyl and matching Wave Freestyle Blue are easy to clean, stain and chemical resistant, antibacterial and antimicrobial. As with all Freedman Seating fabrics, these heavy duty, transit grade vinyls meet FMVSS No. 302 for flammability and smoke. This standard specifies burn resistance requirements for materials used in the occupant compartments of motor vehicles. Its purpose is to reduce deaths and injuries to motor vehicle occupants caused by vehicle fires, especially those originating in the interior of the vehicle from sources such as matches or cigarettes.
