Summit Hits High Note at Design Week

Friday 27th May, 2016
CDW window display

​We’ve had a fantastic response from a continually busy pop up showroom in Clerkenwell this week.  Summit were previewing 4 new ranges and the stream of visitors to our design space were very enthusiastic about our elegant new products.

The showroom pulled together our new chairs and existing favourites in a contemporary colour palette against a very chic industrial backdrop of exposed brickwork, steel beams and vintage parquet flooring.

Covering luxurious soft seating, high-performance operator chairs and a versatile steel-framed offering, the new pieces in the Summit collection have been hailed by visitors to the show as a triumph.

“Seeing reactions and listening to visitor feedback, I believe that the quality of our presence far exceeded that of even some of the long-standing Clerkenwell stalwarts. The product ranges were universally well received and I would say came as very pleasant surprises to many of our existing dealers who saw them. “

 David Simpson, 

Summit MD

Summit Christmas Message 2015

Tuesday 22nd December, 2015

​As the year draws to a close we would like to wish you our warmest Seasons Greetings and express our thanks to you all for your continued support. Once again, rather than send out Christmas cards we will make a donation to our local Dorothy House hospice.

2015 has been a very busy year for us, driven not only by a 17% increase in turnover but more importantly by our philosophy of continual improvement in all areas of our business.

This will continue in 2016 with, amongst other important events, the implementation of our factory ERP system and a number of new and varied product launches. We will keep you informed about all of these milestones as each approaches via our regular updates.

Finally, we hope you all enjoy a well-earned break and have a very happy and prosperous New Year.

Best regards David, Gus, Alan and all the Summit team

Why is Grand Piano stronger than the competition yet far easier to deliver?

Friday 14th August, 2015

​The range we would like to bring to your attention is Grand Piano.

We have already shown a teaser for this range. To find out what we said visit our News Page.

Here's what Summit Chairs MD, David Simpson has to say:

“Why is Grand Piano stronger than the competition yet far easier to deliver?

One of the unique, but not immediately obvious features built in to our Grand Piano range is an internal component that not only endows the product with great structural rigidity but that also allows each unit to be easily delivered in 2 parts.

Using a system of interlocking steel tubes that extend from the base of the chair back to the top of the back extension the units can be quickly assembled on site without any tools. Once assembled the upper section is securely locked in place creating a much stronger product than others manufactured with purely timber framework. Perfect for heavy duty school and college environments.

And a time and back saver for your installation teams struggling to install ever larger pieces of furniture.”

Westwood Seating Launched With Anti-Bacterial Lacquer for Healthcare

Tuesday 7th July, 2015

​If you or your customers have requirements for ‘Health Care Seating’, Summit can now supply, as standard specification, a number of our Westwood range chairs, with the wooden frames finished in Antibacterial Lacquer.

This lacquer has been tested and found to kill 99.9% of most bacteria over a 24 hour period – Salmonella, Listeria, E.Coli & even MRSA. The lacquer’s self-cleaning properties are also far safer to the environment.

The active ingredient has FDA and HSE approval for indirect or incidental food contact and meets the BS6250 standard for severe use.

In combination with the growing number of fabrics available with similar properties the Westwood chairs are a very compelling solution for healthcare seating requirements.

Camira have recently introduced a family of healthcare fabrics and vinyls under the Halcyon Collection banner which offers a very wide variety of colours, patterns and finishes. The models that we currently supply with standard anti-bacterial lacquer are the W10, W11, W50, W55, W60 and W65.

To view the Retail Price List of all the chairs in the Westwood range follow this link.
