Freedman Seating | Booth #224

Commuter 125 Seat with Hamilton Vinyl and contrast stitching.

*NEW* Commuter 125
To commemorate our 125th anniversary, we’ve designed a new seat perfect for vanpool and other commercial use. The Commuter 125 seat by Freedman Seating is lightweight, attractive, comfortable and safe. Engineered and tested in the US, it is FMVSS compliant with all regulations including 202A, 225, 207 and 210. The Commuter 125 highlights our most space-saving features with a thin back cushion for more hip-to-knee room. Safety is priority, so the Commuter Seat is available standard with 3-point shoulder belts with switchable KISI ALR for securing a child seat. Install seats directly into your Ford™ Transit with new transition brackets!

*NEW* Freedman Ford™ Transition Brackets
New transition brackets developed by Freedman Seating Company make it possible to install Freedman 3-point and FMS Eleganza seats onto existing Ford™ legs in a variety of floor plan configurations. FMVSS tested with 3-point seat belts, this new system allows operators, dealers and OEMs to upgrade their Ford™ Transit Wagon interior while using existing OEM legs, floor tracks and hardware. Freedman seats + transition bracket kits are shipped assembled for your Ford™ Transit Wagon.

EconoFlip with Camira Rhino Vinyl.

*NEW* EconoFlip
Convenience and quality at a price you can afford. The EconoFlip has been redesigned with an easy to install, innovative connecting system allowing single units to be efficiently ganged together over any wheelwell for multiple passenger, perimeter seating applications. The EconoFlip locks in the upright position when folded up.

We gave our engineers two priorities, Safety and Comfort. They gave us the stylish Freedman Esquire seat. Features include height adjustable 3-point shoulder belts, Knee Saver backrests for increased hip-to-knee room, and contoured head rests. The Esquire meets FMVSS 210 and 202A to provide the ultimate combination of safety and comfort for all passengers.
