Specialising in upholstery services for a variety of seating systems, including retractable, bleacher, and telescopic seating, we bring over a decade of expertise to every project, ensuring that your seating not only looks great but also stands the test of time.

Our upholstery services are tailored to meet the specific needs of various venues, be it educational institutions, theatres, arenas, or leisure centres. We understand that each setting requires a unique approach to upholstery, considering factors such as usage frequency, audience type, and aesthetic preferences. Whether you are looking to refresh worn-out seats or undertake a complete overhaul of your seating system, our team is equipped to provide solutions that blend functionality with visual appeal.

One of our core strengths is our in-house team of skilled upholsterers. Their craftsmanship is evident in every stitch and seam, ensuring that every piece of upholstered seating we deliver meets the highest standards of quality and comfort. We source premium materials from trusted suppliers, offering a wide range of fabrics, textures, and colours to choose from. This variety ensures that our upholstery services can match your specific design requirements and contribute to the overall ambiance of your space.

In addition to aesthetic improvement, our upholstery services also focus on durability and comfort. We select materials that are not only visually pleasing but also capable of withstanding the rigours of regular use. Our upholstering process includes the use of high-quality foams and paddings, providing optimal comfort for users and enhancing the overall experience of your seating.

Our team also excels in custom upholstery projects. We understand that some venues have unique seating designs or require special attention to detail. Our ability to customise our upholstery services to these unique demands sets us apart. We take pride in our capacity to transform even the most challenging projects into stunning realities.

At Seating Services Ltd, we also recognise the importance of sustainability in our upholstery practices. We strive to use eco-friendly materials where possible and adopt processes that minimise waste. Our goal is to provide upholstery services that not only benefit our clients but also have a reduced impact on the environment.


With over thirty years of dedicated service in the retractable, bleacher, and telescopic seating industry, we bring a level of expertise and attention to detail to our refurbishing projects that is unparalleled.

Our refurbishing services are comprehensive, covering everything from minor touch-ups to major overhauls. We cater to a diverse array of venues, including universities, schools, theatres, arenas, and leisure centres across the UK. Understanding that each venue has its unique character and requirements, our approach is always bespoke, tailored to meet the specific needs and aspirations of our clients.

A typical refurbishment project by Seating Services Ltd might involve the replacement of deck boards, carpets, aisle steps, trims, kickboards, fascia, seat frames, and even complete seats with new foams and upholstery. We take pride in our ability to not only restore the functionality and safety of your seating systems but also to enhance their aesthetic appeal. Our team works closely with clients to select materials and designs that best suit the venue’s ambiance and user requirements.

If your system is power-operated, we offer specialised services to recondition the motors and recoat the rollers. In cases where retrofitting is required, our team is adept at integrating new features into existing systems, ensuring a seamless blend of old and new components. We also conduct thorough surveys of the steel understructure, particularly if the seating unit has a comprehensive service history, to avoid unnecessary expenditures and focus on areas that genuinely need attention.

Our commitment to quality is evident in every aspect of our refurbishing work. We understand that seating systems, especially in high-use areas, are significant investments. Therefore, we ensure that every part we refurbish or replace contributes to extending the lifespan of the seating, providing long-term value to our clients.

The process of refurbishing with Seating Services Ltd is collaborative and transparent. We keep our clients informed at every stage, from initial assessment to final delivery. Our goal is to not only meet but exceed expectations, delivering refurbished seating systems that not only look impressive but also offer enhanced comfort, safety, and functionality.

We bring expertise, craftsmanship, and a commitment to excellence to every project, ensuring your refurbished seating system stands as a testament to quality and innovation.
