Amazing auditorium seatingWhen considering an auditorium remodel or having a new one built, one of the most important considerations is to make available seating arrangements. The process of choosing the right seats’ comes with even more components to factor in, which can then make the selection a daunting task for anyone.

For this reason, it is vital for building owners and managers – whether educational institutions or commercial buildings – to take the time in creating a plan. To make the process simpler and produce the best possible results, include the following aspects of auditorium seating in the planning and preparation.

Answering the most important questions

First, determine how many people can the space can accommodate, in terms of a seated position and the necessary entry and exit points, as well as the aisles. From here, you can then figure out the number of seats that can fit in the auditorium.

Review the pros and cons of auditorium theater seating (fixed) and stack-able seating. From here, you can then proceed to pick out the most suitable upholstery and finish for the seats. And do not forget to factor in ergonomics too.

When fixed seating makes more sense

Choosing between fixed and stack-able seating depends on the space available, as well as the layout of the auditorium. For theater-style auditorium, fixed seating may be your best option.

This is especially true if you do not intend to utilize the structure as a multi-purpose venue, and that your top priorities include convenience and saving time from the hassles of setting up stacked seats.

When to opt for stacked seating

On the other hand, when you plan to use the space for functions other than seated viewing or if you only have limited available room area, then stacked seating may offer you with a better option.

Selecting the right seats for your auditorium does not have to be extremely complicated and time-consuming. As long as you know the basics, and that you have seating experts on your team, you can get the most out of a new or a renovated auditorium.
