Chestnut Ridge Foam
CR SAFGUARD® XL fire-resistant seat cushioning eliminates hazards associated with FMVSS 302 for bus seating applications. FMVSS 302 polyurethane burns profusely, emits huge volumes of toxic smoke, and hinders evacuation. When exposed to open flame, CR SAFGUARD® XL cushioning will not ignite, melt, or drip. It fully complies with FTA Docket 90-A fire safety criteria. Easily incorporated into vehicle specifications.

Sardo Bus & Coach Upholstery
The patented Sardo quick-change seat insert, available in vinyl, fabric, and plastic options, provides fleet operators with superior replacement options at a fraction of the cost of updating transit bus seating. The passenger seat inserts provide added comfort and speed in maintenance servicing, without the use of screw or clip fasteners.

Now trending

Transportation upholstery trends according to Freedman Seating Co.'s Marketing Manager John-Paul Paonessa:

Priority Seating Vinyl
Priority seating vinyl gives elderly riders, people who utilize mobility devices, and others needing additional consideration a clearly marked place to sit. Historically, agencies and private operators struggled to highlight the ADA and priority areas within a vehicle, especially when using vinyl upholstery. English, Spanish, and French translations promote a positive awareness that these seats and sections are reserved.

Flat Woven Fabrics
Most recently, there has been a push toward flat woven fabrics in heavy-duty transit and other commercial bus markets. Flat woven fabric can be antimicrobial, antibacterial, and water-repellent. Made of 100% polyester with acrylic backing, these fabrics are ideal for retirement homes, senior centers, paratransit, hospitals, dial-a-rides, and more.
