Forte Compact (Retractable)

Products / Retractable Seating / Forte SERIES

The Forte Compact retractable stadium seating is the perfect product for venues that need to maximise the available space and provide full comfort.

This retractable chair product provides patrons nearest to the action with exceptional comfort whilst in use, and offers the ability to fold down to (150mm) 6” envelope for retractable flooring systems.

The contouring of this slimline chair offers equivalent comfort to that of a standard Forte chair, meaning spectators in the premium areas are also in the best seats, not just the best location.

Forte Compact can be used to improve access/egress along rows, while its similar styling enables it to be used alongside Forte.
