These were installed in the UK in the late 80s. Six of them are removable in three pairs to create wheelchair spaces. Two of these pairs have gone missing, and the third is damaged and unusable at present, and we are looking for replacements. Does anybody recognise them? Are they still being made? Are any secondhand ones available?

Sure can't but I believe ive set in those same kind many times that were a red color at a local theater. They were comfy but worn out and they got replaced with much more uncomfortable ones but at least the arm rests can fold up on the new ones.

I guess we've all seen similar seats like a thousand times, but good luck finding anything that's exactly the same. Can't you just replace the entire row with something similar looking?

And there's also no clue who manufactured those on the seats anywhere?

They were know n as the multiplex chair. Cannon put them in all their sites. A lot of them were made by Entertainment seating in Glasgow.

I've got about 75 of these in red, and in very good nick, coming out in about 10 days. PM me and I'll tell you more.

Notice that seat companies don't put their name or model number on them.

Most indeed don't, but some actually do, even if it's just a sticker somewhere hidden. I guess it's actually stupid not to do zo.

Kevin,

Kevin, have only just seen your message; I tried to send a PM, but it's not working. I'll pass it on and ask if they're interested, if you still have them.
