The Seating Comfort Boaters Have Been Demanding
Many developers have tried to reduce the shock that hull pounding transfers to a seated boater. With its unique resources, Attwood is the first to bring such an effective system to the recreational market at an affordable price.
SAS™ means 'Shock Absorption System', and it is available exclusively in Avenir™, Avenir™ Sport, and Centric™ SAS™ seats from Attwood.
The SAS Quad-Spring™ suspension system is completely integrated within the seat pan - not bolted on, as are some systems. Four marine-grade coil springs stretch a stainless steel grid that supports and shapes the molded foam cushion in the seat pan. This suspension provides Dynamic Comfort while underway and Static Comfort when relaxing. Spring Grid Flexes with the coil springs and supports the seat foam. Continually adjusts for circulation and comfort.
Provides comfort and 3" travel for shock absorption. Prevents rider from 'bottoming out.'
Dynamic Comfort with SAS
The SAS seat pan suspends molded urethane foam over a spring-isolated grid. While underway, wave impact is absorbed by SAS suspension, not the boater.
Springs absorb energy and reduce shock.
Isolated suspension does not allow boater to bottom out against hard surface.
Impact is absorbed by the suspension system - not the boater.
Even while idle and sitting still, the SAS suspension adds long-term comfort. Molded foam for SAS seats is thicker at the sides to give larger boaters extra support and 'center' smaller boaters in middle of the seat.
Seat Shell and Molded Foam
Work together to provide ergonomic comfort and spinal support.
Stylish curve supports arm in natural, comfortable position.
Provides ventilation at lower back for cool comfort.
Creates rounded edge at front of seat. When bolster is down the seat exceeds ABYC H-31 Type A Driver requirements.
Detent holds bolster up at 102° angle with 7" height. Provides elevated seating for improved visibility when docking or maneuvering.
Recessed Bottom Angle
Rounded corners and recessed bottom angle minimize the bottom 'footprint.' Allows seat to swivel in confined spaces.
No Exposed Hinges
No ugly brackets or fasteners to color-match, pinch, or abrade.
Easy to Install ... Saves Assembly Time and Cost
Avenir™ seating can reduce upholstery and installation costs because it's refined to just four interlocking components. Avenir™ uses the marine-grade materials tested and proven in Centric™ SAS™ seats - thermoplastic shell and stainless steel suspension grid with corrosion-proof springs. It's all made possible by Attwood's unique qualifications for pleasure boat seating:
- Plastic molding expertise
- Years of experience in meeting the needs of boat builders
All springs and molded-plastic components are built for the real marine world. Tough construction withstands abusive environments.
Once upholstered, provides a quick, easy method to cover staples and seams on the upholstered seat shell. Allows design flexibility and creates a deep-tuck, finished look.
Onsert posts snap securely into foolproof clips for quick, easy assembly.
Flexes into keyed slots on the inside walls of seat shell. Cuts assembly cost because there are no brackets to color-match, assemble, or install.
SAS™ Seat Pan
Seat Pan has self-aligning posts that match pockets molded in the Seat Shell. T-Nuts in the Seat Pan match the universal bolt pattern of pedestal seat mounts and sliders. Fasteners from pedestal installation draw seat pan and shell together, forming a completed seat that exceeds tough ABYC H-31 Standards.
