Vehicular Seating Systems

Proof engineering has extensive experience in the automotive industry, working directly with Tier 1 suppliers such as Johnson Controls and Bostrom Seating. We have developed seating systems and mechanical components for SUV's, sedan's, military aircraft and ground vehicles, and even ambulances. We are involved in many phases of seating development from ideation to prototyping and testing. Our experience means that your design will be done efficiently, saving you time and money.
Passenger Vehicle

Seating for passenger vehicles is ever so demanding. Manufacturers compete to produce next generation seats with improved performance while cutting cost and weight. Concurrently, federal regulators raise the requirements bar, improving occupant safety. This why it is important to choose an engineering company that is familiar with the inner workings of the automotive industry, one that possesses the latest design tools and expertise to generate superior products. At Proof, we have the experience required to design both conventional and ABTS seating systems and components that exceed FMVSS, supplier, and consumer expectations.

Military Vehicle and Aircraft

Proof Engineering understands the complexity and importance of seats for military applications. Military vehicle seating must be robust, continually evolving to ensure the protection of our soldiers in demanding environments. Unlike civilian vehicle seats, they may also protect from the shock of improvised explosive devises or may be designed to protect the soldier from shrapnel or artillery fire. In aircraft applications, the seats must be exceptionally lightweight to save on fuel costs.

 

Heavy Truck and Bus

Potentially driving hundreds of miles each day, drivers of trucks and buses require seats that are not only robust and safe, but also comfortable. For this reason, special accommodations are often made to ensure that the seats can withstand continuous loading while maintaining driver comfort. Devices such as airbag suspension systems act to isolate the occupant from the road and vehicle, reducing vibration that causes bouncing and discomfort. Having a wide seating experience, our engineers are able to pull from a vast pool of knowledge to solve these problems in creative new ways.
