Lincoln Center had a very difficult situation – How to move 1,000 people seated in a riser system
during an opera performance of Die Soldaten? The task was presented to Seating Solutions and was made acutely more difficult as when the entire structure moved, it could not make a sound or it would ruin the opera.
Rails, similar to train tracks, were laid on the floor and our Ultimate flip up system was built on top of a motorized base with wheels. Every connection required a foam gasket to prevent noise. Every small detail was addressed prior to the show with our design team and the installation was executed flawlessly. The entire system gracefully and quietly moved down the tracks during the performance.
