Flip-Tex Lounge Furniture

This new system of furniture is designed in a revolutionary way to maintain beautiful seating with fixed upholstery – without removing the units from service. Unmatched by any other system, Flip-Tex is simple, quick and tamper-resistant. With the Flip-Tex system you can renew the beauty of an upholstered seating unit four ways: reverse seat and back cushions, clean covers on seat and back cushions, replace covers on seat and back cushions or replace entire seat and back cushions.

Flip-Tex seating designs allow you to replace cushions instantly – without ever removing the unit from service. Seat and back cushions are completely removable and reversible, but are firmly locked into place.
Cushions are unlocked by merely inserting the oak “flip-stick” provided with the furniture into the locking mechanism and then sliding the cushion off the support tubes. When the cushions are slid back into place on the support tubes, they lock automatically.

All cushions have zippered covers which are removable for cleaning or replacement. All zippers are inaccessible unless the cushions are removed. This prohibits the possibility of concealing contraband items in the seating unit.
Seating comfort and support are provided through ignition-modified foam cushioning over tempered steel springs. Seat and back surfaces are supported by tempered, sinuous, arched steel springs which are insulated then cushioned. This is the standard construction which has proved to be so dependable in institutional seating. In the full scale G.S.A. pressure/impact heavy duty test, Flip-Tex came through all of the eight cycles unscathed.

Flip-Tex designs are available in three beautiful design series – in single and multiple seating units: Butcher Block, Open Frame and Traditional.
