Thin Line Seating for Small Cars 820405

An alternative in automotive seating suspension systems, which offers a multitude of styling variations, has been fitted into the smaller European vehicles for several years. Effective isolation and dampening are achieved through a marriage of fabric and rubber, which also produces a lightweight resilent support for seat and back cushions in cars, trucks, and public transport vehicles. Seats can now have less weight and bulk while maintaining driver and passenger comfort. This seating suspension system offers increased interior compartment room as well as the capability of being tuned for varying degrees of ride softness. Modifications to the basic seat suspension system can provide inflatable supports to customize comfort in the lower back, leg, and other areas of the body that are subject to driving fatique.
