Fighting fire with comfort

Firefighters battling wildfires often spend weeks on the front lines. In response, we designed the Sentinel seat to be functional, safe and highly adjustable for long-distance travel. This helps firefighters maintain comfort during off-road excursions by converting the seat to a bed for proper rest.

Putting first-responder feedback first

During our development of the Guardian ambulance seat, customers told us the industry standard swivel release was cumbersome to use and difficult to see during rescue operations.

To address this, we designed a 360-degree locking swivel mechanism featuring a conspicuous, bright yellow release bar that's not only easy to access and operate but also designed to eliminate any pinch points.

Engineering answers at speed

As the MX175 Low Profile Suspension Seat went into production, a customer found one of their trucks had a differently shaped mounting deck than the original specification.

Our team traveled to their site, engineered a custom mount, seamlessly integrated the modification into our seat design, and fulfilled their urgent production requirements—all within a single day.
