Bus Seat Fabric Choices

The seats on commercial buses are one of the things that your passengers will be in contact with nearly all of the time while on the bus. Therefore, choosing the right seat fabric is one of the most critical choices you can make when looking at all of the different buses for sale in the bus industry. Carpenter Bus Sales has sold thousands and thousands of buses and has learned what seat fabrics work best for each application. With all the varying levels of seat fabric that can be installed on any bus, understanding the differences will help you choose the best fabric for your installation. Carpenter Bus Sales has an extensive collection of fabrics and vinyl from the leading manufacturers of transportation grade upholstery.  We have access to several different vinyl and fabrics in a wide variety of colors and styles to meet even the most specifc needs.

Seating fabrics are usually broken down into levels with Level 1 being the lowest and level 5 being the highest standard level. There are some specialized fabrics that fall outside of the level pricing tier for very specific applications. All of the fabrics within the level based pricing system include both cloth fabric and vinyl seating.  Basic vinyl seating can also be upgraded as an anti-bacterial and anti-microbial fabric which is ideal for retirement homes, senior centers, para-transit, hospitals, dial-a-rides, & more! Cloth fabric comes in a large variety of colors and patterns. Most commercial buses, like those used with churches, casinos, hotels, seat fabric on buses for saleresorts and the like are outfitted with a minium of Level 3 fabric with most of those applications choosing to go with the comfort and clean-ability of Level 5 fabric. Generally speaking, the Level 5 Fabric that Carpenter Bus Sales uses is impregnated with a Scotch-Guard™ type of material that is very resistant to stains.
