What is Fixed Seating

25th August 2021

Fixed seating is our permanent, unmoveable seating solution for venues that includes chairs, benches, or a combination of both. Fixed seating is in contrast to retractable seating, our seating solution that can be folded away for storage or space. Indeed, Fixed seating systems by SIS are a fantastic option to use in venues and businesses. So let’s see why they can be the answer to your seating needs!

Uses for Fixed Seating

At SIS we have various different fixed seating systems that suit a diverse number of venues and centres. We provide bespoke, fixed seating for businesses such as:

These are such fixed seating solutions that are installed in locked locations and attached to tiers or floors. Our fixed structures are very popular structures especially if you don’t plan to change the arrangement of your room or hall. Thus, fixed seating is very popular in theatres, cinemas, places of worship, and educational institutions where the purpose of the venue is less likely to change from the single vision. This is especially true as these venues are tailor-made for viewing purposes and SIS offer customised seating solutions to fit all designs and builds.
