Is Our School Auditorium Seating Restorable?

Thursday, September 1st, 2011

If your school’s auditorium seating looks like the chairs above there is a chance that they may be a candidate for restoration.  Longo’s seating restoration services have been serving public schools for over 40 years by bringing yesterday’s seats back to a state of brilliance!

Why Restore Your Auditorium Seating?

  • Current codes would force a change to the seating layout – resulting in a loss of capacity.
  • The aesthetics of the existing chair cannot be matched using current production models.  There is “Historic” value to the seating.
  • Restoration of the seating can be very economical.

What Is The Restoration Process?

  • Removal
  • Shipment to the factory
  • Disassembly
  • Stripping
  • Refinishing
  • Assembly
  • Shipment to the job site
  • Installation

Most firms will do not completely “restore” the chair like new.  Meaning, they perform painting on the job site, reupholster over existing foam, use inferior foam components, do not provide new internal seat springs, etc.

Longo does a complete chair restoration.  We strip chairs down to bare metal and wood. We refinish using the latest in finishing technology. We reupholster using new foam and fabric.  That is why we are the very best at auditorium seating restoration!

American School & University’s Interiors Showcase Link for Indian Hills High School

Scope:  Auditorium Seating Restoration

Excerpt below is from the SchoolDesigns.com website:

To stay within budget, designers chose to work with the existing furniture and oversaw the refurbishment of each of the 726 auditorium chairs, rather than purchase new seating. The former primary-color rainbow configuration was replaced with elegant navy tone-on-tone checkerboard upholstery, a matte powder-coat finish on the chair structure, and classic wood arms.
