The waiting game: Create stand out waiting rooms

Tags: Trends

Waiting rooms carry weight

Choosing the right Waiting Room seating is an important decision. As people sit and wait (sometimes for prolonged periods) they make judgements based on their experience – an uncomfortable time will reflect on their opinion of the business. The seating needs to be comfortable and supportive. The choice of seating makes a big impact on the whole experience.

We have a wide variety of seating styles and options to suit any environment and need; from a vast airport to a confined dentist office. Here, we outline some common waiting room requirements and introduce you to our products that fulfil those requirements perfectly.




High volume of visitors? The Versit Beam range

Versit is a multi-purpose seating system combining the rigidity of welded steel frames with comfortable and durable plastic seats and backs in 5 colours. Designed for contract, public and corporate environments there are a myriad of materials and finishes to choose from. The plastic seat and back structures are ideal for short duration or wipe down applications such as waiting areas, hospitals, schools and canteens.

Hygiene is vital? The Westwood range

The natural beauty of highly polished, beech wood frames defines the Westwood range. It is particularly suited to healthcare environments due to the standard application of an anti-bacterial lacquer on the solid beech frames. This lacquer meets the BS6250 standard for severe use having FDA and HSE approval for indirect or incidental food contact and has been found to kill 99.9% of most bacteria over a 24 hour period.
