Alu launches improved chairs

Industry Database

Alu Design & Services, designer and manufacturer of advanced pilot chairs and deck rails, re-launched two of its core product offerings earlier this year, with enhanced design and production standards.

These chairs will be presented at Nor-Fishing 2012.

The company says the result is an even better seating experience at costs of up to 20% less than previous models.

Alu’s Alutech 400 and Alutech 500 are now available in aluminium made from pressurised die-casting. This production technique is said to greatly reduce the product weight, make the 400 and 500 even more robust than their predecessors, and allow Alu to offer the chairs with a reduced price tag.

“It really is more for less,” commented Frank Robertsen, Alu Design’s marketing director. “Since launching in 2009, our chairs have earned a fantastic reputation for comfort, durability and usability.

“In today’s market, price is becoming an increased focus for our customers, so we’ve taken that to heart and used it as a key driver for the latest innovations.”

The new Alutech 400 and 500 (the 500 has the same specifications, although it offers height adjustable armrests that can house joysticks) have user-focused design enhancements.

These include: New arm and footrests, increased operational functionality (such as easier seat height adjustment with a lever to operate the gas struts), clearer indications of the seat’s functions and adjustable nature, and a narrower overall chair width (to give more room between operational consoles).

“We’ve worked with our customers to provide the very best chairs – products that meet their price demands, while exceeding expectations,” Mr Robertsen added.

“They offer high quality construction, unbeatable comfort and, we believe, a proposition that will help us maintain the company’s impressive growth curve.”
