Sitting in comfort and safety [IDEX19D2]

18 February 2019

UK firm TEK Military Seating (Stand 05-C21) is showing several innovations in its ProTEK brand of military vehicles, including its industry-leading lightweight ProTEK Mesh seat.

Military seating has come to the fore in recent years as vehicle manufacturers and integrators have recognised that seats are not merely a low-cost necessity, but that seat ergonomics, safety and protection are vital considerations in protected mobility.

Designed and manufactured in the UK to the highest standards of safety and protection, the ProTEK brand includes a wide range of driver, commander, crew, gunner, turret, loaders and bespoke seating for most types of military vehicle, both legacy and new build.

With modularity and flexibility at the core of every seat design, ProTEK seating can be modified to offer maximum fit and function without the need for additional tooling or major design changes, utilising innovative modules, which can be attached to most seats to meet the customers' requirements. Most ProTEK seats are available in STANAG 4569 AEP-55 Vol blast protection versions, in stroking and non-stroking variants.
