Our custom seating design

Fighting fire with comfort

Firefighters who respond to wildfires can spend weeks in the field.

So 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 and convert 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.

So, we engineered our Bostrom 360-degree locking swivel mechanism with an easy-to-access and operate bright yellow release bar that avoids pinch points.

Engineering answers at speed

As the MX175 Low Profile Suspension Seat went into production, our customer found one truck had a differently shaped mounting deck than the original spec.

We went to their facility, formulated a new mount, applied the design change to our seat, and met their immediate production needs: all in one day.
