Product Design Brief:
The BT 4000 is a product of many years of design and project experience in building and supplying furniture for teaching applications having clean, essential and neutral lines which express the minimalist ethos of the range to enhance any environment. The system comprises of integrated, continuous seats and tables for university lecture theatres, conference halls, auditoriums, convention centres and training facilities. It can be arranged in a straight line or curved composition, on large steps or on inclined floors. The structures are built so that the components can be anchored without the restriction of a fixed distance modular set-up, allowing a variety of solutions to be achieved to fit whatever the project requirements. The seats are tip-up and writing tables can be either fixed or tip-up with anti-panic movement. All components have been simplified and are made efficient to ensure they are practical, hard-wearing and long-lasting, adapting to all technological and multimedia functionality.
Model types: First row bench with fixed or tip-up writing table, intermediate row bench with fixed or tip-up table and tip-up seat and end row with tip-up seat.
Components: Painted extruded aluminium horizontal bars: rectangular section upper bar, rounded square section lower bar, both with special internal ribbing and external grooves which enable the uprights, writing tables and feet to be positioned and fixed, without predefining drilling or a fixed distance modular setup.
Structure: A combination of anodized aluminium glides and powder coated mild steel in grey or anthracite scratchproof paint.
Uprights in pressed, painted structural sheet steel, equipped at the ends with plates which connect to the beams and support the seat’s rotation components.
Tip-up seat mechanism with automatic return device featuring a support plate and plates for connection to the pressed steel beams, seat rotation devices and support plate protected by a pressed steel safety guard coated in scratch proof anthracite coloured epoxy polyester paints.
Seat & Back: Hot pressed plywood in bi-laminate beech treated with transparent polyurethane varnish, non-reflective, non-slip and scratch proof properties or upholstered with plywood internal support and polyurethane foam padding, fully covered in fabric or art leather.
