Ferco Seating Launches FT10 Wrimatic™ Auditorium Seating

Luxury Education Seating Provides Students and Teachers with Comfort Fitting for Every Lecture Hall 

UK-based seating manufacturer, Ferco Seating, has formally announced the launch of the FT10 Wrimatic™ education seating in. The FT10 is an executive style auditorium seat that is equipped with a patented and award-winning A3 integrated writing tablet. 

The FT10’s ergonomic design includes inbuilt lumbar support for lengthy sitting periods. It can be configured for radial and straight-room layouts as well as adjust to any room’s unique spatial specifications. FT10 is also available as a “swivel” option which has full 360 degree movement capabilities. This allows for students to work together and collaborate within the standard lecture-style classroom. 

For truly flexible layouts, the FT10 can be mounted on easyglide casters, enabling rapid and easy reconfiguration of spaces.

Designed by an aeronautical engineer, the Wrimatic™ tablet opens in one continuous movement from its unique triangular joint and stows away neatly when not in use. The smooth prismoid joint about which it rotates is the result of clever engineering design. Additionally, the knuckle joint is made of die cast aluminium which means it is extremely robust. 

The writing surface is the strongest tablet on the market with a load bearing of 240KG (most tablets are tested to 40K), and its A3 size means it is large enough to support laptops  – not just notepads or tablet devices. Wrimatic’s wide surface area means that it is suitable for left-handed persons as it folds out across the entire seat. Made from the same material used to fabricate motorcycle helmets, ABS, the fold out tablet is one hundred percent shatterproof. Most importantly, Wrimatic caters to all users and is available on a height adjustable self-operated gas lift for wheelchair patrons. FT10 can be customized with removable covers in a wide array of contemporary colors, embroidery, fixed desking, DDA spaces, and integrated power and data points. 

The FT10 meets British Standards for strength and durability in addition to acoustic testing for performance spaces. The tablet is anti-panic to conform to fire regulations and meets health and safety requirements with no finger-traps or exposed pivots. 

It is a favorite with corporate clients, discerning teaching establishments and performance spaces alike. Previous installations include Cambridge University and University College London (UCL).
