6040 Flex GPL
Figueras Design Centre
A seat conceived for installation in lecture halls and conference centres, it strikes an excellent balance between the degree of comfort and maximum use of the space.
The seat tips up automatically. The seat and backrest cushions have a specially studied ergonomic design. The seat has obtained excellent results on all the ergonomic tests carried out on it. The seat is formed by a single piece of cold-moulded polyurethane foam completely covering the metal structure. This structure is made up of a curved tube frame, a network of flat springs and the corresponding axles for the swivel movement. The block is upholstered with an easily replaceable zipped cover. The seat tips up automatically thanks to a double spring system (tested to 500,000 cycles) inside it that requires no lubrication and is extremely quiet. The backrest is also formed by a single piece of the same characteristics as the seat. A 5 mm-thick TS System fire curtain can be inserted between the upholstery and the foam. This prevents fire reaching the foam, thus slowing down the emission of toxic gases and flames. The seat and backrest assembly is supported by two side panels joined together by a central steel bridge. The supports or ball-and-socket swivel mechanism of the seat's hinge pins are contained in these side panels. The sides are made of high-density wooden panels upholstered down to the floor with a protective trim. At the bottom, they end in a steel plate base by means of which the seat is anchored to the floor, with the metal expansion plugs hidden inside. They also incorporate a GPL model writing tablet. This is a large -420x360 mm- tablet made of varnished or lacquered wood. The panel stows away in the sides and folds in and out along a rail mounted on an aluminium profile. The movement is smooth, continuous and completely silent. This is an anti-panic writing tablet. In other words, when the seat is vacated the tablet automatically folds away into the side of the seat, thereby preventing the gangway from becoming blocked in the event of the hall having to be evacuated. The tip-up mechanism is also silent thanks to a rubber buffer.
