Wheelhouse Seats - Click any image below for more information.
Wheelhouse or bridge seating may be used for extended periods and must offer a high level of shock mitigation and comfort plus good ergonomics for the helmsman and crew. Wheelhouse suspension seats designs include shock absorbers linked to pillars, posts and moving arm systems that can be integrated with a fore and aft slider system. Crew and passenger seating for extended passages or stand-by roles may be designed to enable the occupant to sleep in the seat. Depending on the vessels design internal seats may include a multiple point seat belt or harness. Some wheelhouse seat designs have the option to incorporate controls into the armrest for helmsman, navigator, engineer and various crew tasks.
