Logistics in Lecture Theater Seating

Logistics in Lecture Theater Seating

Lecture theater seating is found in lecture halls on college campuses, in businesses that address large numbers of employees, and even in medical institutions that teach as well as heal. Lecture theater seating has to be installed in certain ways for it to meet the logistics of the room and the purpose of the chairs.

Lecture theater seating is set on gradually increasing floors so that each row of chairs is able to see the lecture podium and the visual displays that the instructor shows. This is the same way that you see seats in move cinemas installed. Each row is progressively higher than the row before so that everyone that goes to see the movie can see the screen without obstruction.

Lecture Theater seating usually has seats that fold up to make it easier for people to walk down the aisle and get to a seat and to make the cleaning of the hall easier to do. When people arrive at the hall after other people have already been seated the raised seats allows them to slip through the aisle with little difficulty.

The aisles between the seats are normally narrow and this makes getting to the middle seats rather difficult. The aisles are built narrow so that more rows of seats can be installed in an area. The more people that will fit into the room the better, in the eyes of the institution. So the aisles are narrow and there is very little room for your feet and legs.

These chairs are almost always designed on the row seating principle. That means one long support bar runs beneath the actual seat. The support bar is fastened to the floor with anchors and every few feet there will be an added brace to keep the chairs from tilting backwards.

These rows of seats can be designed with two or three seats on them or they can be designed with hundreds of seats on them. They reduce the amount of framing that is under a chair while retaining the strength and sturdiness of the chairs. This allows more seats to fit into a smaller area.

The coverings on these seats are usually done with fabrics that are very easy to clean. That means they are usually plastics that can be sanitized and disinfected. Wherever large groups of people can gather you will find that germs gather also. To keep germs from spreading diseases among the people the owners of the building have to keep the seats disinfected.

Most of these seats have armrests that are shared between the people sitting in them. The rule of thumb used by the majority is that the arm rest on the right side of the seat belongs to you and the one on the left belongs to the person seated to your left. Some of the seats will have drink cup holders like the theater versions do and some of them will not. The average color of these seats is maroon. Maroon is easy on the eyes and it also hides stains well.
