Solara retractable fold-down specifications

Fold-down Options

  • Solara fold-down mechanisms are compatible with all manufacturers retractable platforms and are simply screw fixed into position.
  • Solara fold-down mechanism can be specified as 1 of 3 options dependant on budget and chair module specification.
  • Manual – Integrated foot bar mechanism that trips the chairs and allows for an easy fold. No spring assist with setting chairs up.
  • Semi-automatic with foot release – integrated foot bar mechanism that trips the chairs and allows for an easy fold. Spring assisted when raising the chairs to the upright position, and dampening on lowering the chairs to the deck.
  • Semi-automatic with automatic release – spring assist in setting up chairs when the platform is open. Chairs automatically fold-down as the system is closing
  • In semi-automatic mode, a row of up to 12 chairs can be fitted to a single rail, for extremely quick turnaround between events.
  • Solara fold-down mechanisms are designed to reduce the ‘folded depth’ of the seat to 835mm. The mechanism geometry automatically draws the seats into a compacted position as the chairs are folded, allowing the backrest height to be maintained without the seats protruding outside the platforms in the stored position and facilitating the use of facia panels.

Solara Removable Solution

Solara seat modules can be mounted to retractable platforms by location into specially designed fabrications. The seats are arranged on rails in banks of three and four seat units, which are also fully compatible with Grid flat floor system facilitating maximum value and flexibility for arena configurations.
