Custom Seating Solutions

One Thing Led to Another …

“Our troops are getting shot at,” the US Military said to us after the first Gulf War. “We’d like you to design a center seat so our troops can see who’s shooting at them.” We presented an idea to them, and they told us it would work perfectly. They were happy, liked the design, and were sure troops would “eat it up.” The seats are still in use today.

During that budding relationship, we were also looking to offer our multitude of composite outdoor seating shapes to different sports venues, namely high school football fields where they’ll have something that’s low-to-no maintenance, doesn’t absorb heat, comfortable to sit on, and folds down and up.

The response has been fantastic, although there is still work to do. Waterparks and theme parks, particularly in southern states, all use products that don’t hold up and need constant replacement. We can provide these composite outdoor seating solutions without concern for extensive sun activity and UV degradation.

Troop seating ready for inspection. SWP does offer many types of composite outdoor seating used for troop movement, stadiums, and high school bleachers.
