Retractable Seating

Camatic Seating provides retractable seating services designed to be a tight envelope system with the highest quality standards. Camatic's state-of-the-art systems go hand in hand with its specially designed seating solutions, which can be customized to meet all venue requirements. Our retractable seating systems have proven effective in giving schools and universities the flexibility they require to reinvent multipurpose facilities.




Combining ergonomic foam, refined upholstery detailing and beam mounting, the Forte is a chair that can be utilised in all areas of an arena for a consistent appearance. From General Admission to Club sections, from concrete risers to retractable platforms, the Forte goes everywhere

As venue seating specialists with over 55 years of experience, Camatic has designed, manufactured and installed new seating systems in some of the biggest stadiums and arenas across the globe. Our retractable seating is manufactured to the same high standards as our standard seating series but in a more compact form. Installing a new retractable flooring system or upgrading an existing one? Do you want to provide your customers with the most comfortable seating possible? Our Forte compact model is the obvious choice. Designed and engineered by our team of highly experienced specialists, it’s simply the best telescopic seating currently available.

Beam-mounted retractable seating for comfort and convenience

Our Forte compact seating is beam mounted, making it very easy to reposition at short notice. With a fully enclosed pivot mechanism that requires no maintenance, the seating can be folded down to a 150 mm envelope whenever you need to retract your floor, making it extremely convenient for busy venues in the UK. Each chair has replaceable seat and back pads, to enable ease of maintenance. They can also be fitted retrofitted with arms and cup holders if desired. Every detail of the Forte compact seating design has been carefully considered with retractable flooring systems in mind. No compromises have been made regarding quality, comfort, or durability.
