Seat recovering (rolling stock refurbishment)
Diamond Seating took delivery of the seating for these train carriages, belonging to a British rail operator, and fully refurbished them to a high standard. Once completed, they were delivered back to the train operator for installation. Refurbishment included seats and back foams and moquette covering in the colour/pattern of the operator's choice.
Diamond Seating has extensive experience creating bespoke prototypes for vehicle operators - both rolling stock and buses - which allows them to inspect the quality of the product before they commit themselves to a design. These particular seats were produced for clients who wished to see prototype concepts in situ, which led to them commissioning the entire refurbishment projects with us.
Standard class full refurbishment (rolling stock)
This standard class seating refurbishment project by Diamond Seating included new seat covers (back and seat foam, covered with moquette of the operator's choice), plus ancillary items including grab handles, seat handles, consoles and seat back meal trays.
Class 158 full interior refurbishment (rolling stock & bus)
Full refurbishment of rolling stock and buses/coaches involves stripping the seats out and taking them back to our Sheffield facility. Seat frames are cleaned, cushions are recovered, and back shelves, seat pans, arms, consoles, meal tray tables and grab handles are replaced. Diamond Seating supplies all components for this type of project. Timescales vary from as little as a week for one unit, to up to several years for major refurbishments of whole fleets.
Class 321 vehicle cleaning project (rolling stock)
This included removal of all seating at the client's site and transportation back to Diamond Seating's Sheffield facility, intensive cleaning of all standard and first class seating, followed by reinstallation of seating into the vehicle. This thorough cleaning project of over 114 units to a high standard was on-going for more than four years.
Class 158 first class carriage refurbishment (rolling stock)
An audit of samples of a train operator's rolling stock will reveal which components require refurbishment. Following inspection of several units belonging to this client, we agreed the details of the contract and a schedule of works that would not disrupt carriage use. Across several night shifts, our offsite team replaced the required items which included head rests, seat back cushions, seat base cushions, arm rests, side cheeks, grab handles and other ancillary items.
Class 465 interior vehicle refurbishment (rolling stock)
This project, for a major British train operator, involved the refurbishment of 38 sets of 303 seats. Diamond Seating fitted new seats (seat and back foams) as well as covers in the operator's chosen moquette. The refurbishment was carried out at our facility in Sheffield and the full on-site installation was completed by our own team. This project took five months to complete.
