NRB continuous seating in varying configurations, lengths, and mixed radii.

Since the introduction of our model NRBI-225 (inside-facing) and NRBO-225 (outside-facing) curved benches, we have been receiving frequent requests from the design community asking for custom NRB continuous seating in varying configurations, lengths, and mixed radii. Having perfected meeting these design requirements with our backless FRB benches, we set out to solve the complicated engineering, tooling, and design challenges for producing custom radii NRB style continuous seating with backs. We are very proud to announce that we made what we thought was impossible, possible.

Comfort was a big challenge in producing these benches given the compound angles and the need to keep the seat pitched using our traditional contour, rather than the easier, less comfortable and far less elegant seating which some offer using horizontal seats with no pitch. The pitched seat and back required breakthrough innovations in fixture and tooling design coupled with computer communications between machines resulting in great flexibility and enormous value.

NRB continuous seating in varying configurations, lengths, and mixed radii.

Imagine the complexity of positioning an array of formed steel ribbons in an ever-adjustable sweep of radii, while maintaining the pitch and comfort of a contoured seating surface. Now imagine incorporating sufficient precision to hold, maintain, and weld dozens of such pieces. We can now produce benches in fixed radii, concentric radii, even the classic moving elegance of the French curve. And, because of the investment in tooling and technology, we can do all this cost-effectively, flexibly and quickly.

The NRBI-225 (inside-facing) and the NRBO-225 (outside-facing) curved bench can be used as a stand-alone bench or in combination with other straight or curved NRB bench sections to create larger seating areas.

Approximate 6 ft. (1.8 meter) section. Approximate 160 in (4064 mm) standard inside radius (22.5 deg).

Standard

All fabricated metal components are steel shotblasted, etched, phosphatized, preheated and electrostatically powder-coated with TGIC polyester powder coatings.

Options

Custom radii, fixed radii, concentric radii, even the classic moving elegance of the French curve. Vertical steel scrolls. Armrests. Intermediate armrests (bolt-on). Surface mount. In-ground mount. Gull-wing mount. Junction braces for continuous configurations.
