Grinsty Rail Interiors recently secured a contract for the refurbishment of 2 Tram Sets of seating for Stagecoach Supertram – Sheffield. This involved collecting the seating from the Depot in Sheffield and bringing them all back to our premises in Giltbrook. Once on-site, the existing covers and foams were removed leaving the boards to be recovered. New covers had already been cut and sewn in-house against pre-developed templates. The original covers were “fixed trim”, i.e. they were stapled to the boards. Grinsty Rail Interiors re-developed the seat assemblies to allow “loose covers” to be fitted by way of “slitting” the boards and fitting velcro to the boards and covers, enabling easier removal for maintenance purposes. These covers were manufactured from a moquette (purchased from, and embroidered (by, prior to receiving the seats, thus enabling us to re-trim, including brand new foams, and deliver back to the Sheffield Depot, in a timely and efficient manner, to the quality levels expected.
