Construction seats in Thomastown

Construction Seats - Australia

CATERPILLAR - KOMATSU - KOBELCO - HITACHI

The construction industry is huge, and those who work in it and use heavy equipment and machinery need to be aware that they must use the correct seating at all times. As a construction worker, you can often spend hours jarring and jolting when driving on uneven terrain. Usually, mechanical suspension systems on these large and heavy types of equipment do not offer a suitable enough solution to prevent this from happening, which could eventually result in back injuries and pain.

Here at KAB Performance Seating, we offer a full range of products to enable construction operators to use their equipment with ease and comfort. We provide state of the art seating design and solutions for cranes, bulldozers, backhoes, excavators, haul trucks, scrapers, skidders, wheel loaders, and feller bunchers. Using the latest ergonomic features such as air and mechanical suspension, and comfortable cushioning, plus a whole host of adjustments specified for your personal needs, we can support operators in this physically demanding industry.
