An elegant, space-saving and strong design
This classic chair is ingeniously designed to create a sleek and compact closed profile - thanks to its unique auto-tip mechanism. When vacated, the Espace 628’s seat, back and armrests rotate into a very neat envelope. The whole action occurs naturally under gravity with no springs. This page shows the basic version of the chair. Enhanced versions include the Espace 628T, with a fold-away writing tablet, the Espace 628 High Back, and the Espace 628CC, our top of the range Espace model with a thick, pocket sprung seat pan, high back and elegant timber armrests.
Available for use on TX Telescopic Platforms, on the removable matrix system or as a standalone fixed chair.
Conformance to BS EN 12727:2000 Level 4 (severe)
The highest test level of the British strength standard for ranked seating.
Spring-free gravity tip mechanism with auto-tip armrests
No need for customers to fold armrests to pass, or for operators to tip them prior to operating retractable platforms.
Comfortable, ergonomic design
Geometry can also be adjusted for higher tiers to optimise comfort and support.
Compact Closed Profile
Just 145mm deep (150mm with plastic protection panels). The small closed envelope is space efficient and creates generous walkways in front of the chairs.
Nylon bushings for silent operation
Ideal for performing arts spaces.
