NEC Trade Fair Birmingham-TransFlex XL retractable seating system

The NEC fair in Birmingham wanted to make better and more frequent use of its existing halls.

Standworks ELAN used their TransFlex XL system to create a concept for the use of the halls with a mobile retractable seating system.

The starting point of our planning was an expected capacity of approx. 2,000 visitors on high-end retractable seating system with chairs upholstered on all sides, glass railings and carpeting.




Our concept envisaged 14 mobile, transportable half-blocks, each of which could be put together in 7 blocks with 273 seats, for a total of 1911 seats. The installation of these TransFlex retractable seating blocks can be done in a variety of configurations for a wide variety of events.

Each tribune block has a separate staircase at the rear to comply with all safety regulations.
