Seating

stepvan seats

You'll never find more affordable comfort than our Freedman high back seats. We use a high back seat in our Mill Supply Stepvan and discovered it is more comfortable than most cars. A high back seat provides relief to long hours of driving by relieving back strain, especially the models with adjustable lumbar support. Some of the models have arms that can be raised to move out of the way. Seats with higher support in the back give you a sense of security and help reduce neck injury in case of accidents. Choose all black vinyl or a black, grey or tweed cloth model. Three different styles come with arms and four of our Freedman high back seats come with lumbar support. Our latest high back reclines, has arms and lumbar support.

When you are looking to replace an original seat on an older truck you may want to use what we call a 'Low Back Seat'. Most Low back seats measure an overall height of 22". Seat bottoms usually are 18" x 18" and are about 8" thick. They are available in blue for the original equipment Grumman Olson van, black vinyl or black and white fabric.

The type of passenger seating we carry is called 'jump seats'. The seat cushion is mounted on seat bracket that flips up and out of the way when not in use. When in the stored position the seat extends less than 6 inches from the wall. These removable seats can be taken from one vehicle and transferred to another. They install in 'seat pockets' which are aluminum channels mounted to the back footwell of the truck. A tether strap connects the seat to the floor in case the truck is flipped, stopping the seat from sliding out. Seat belts are included with each seat. Jump seats come in two sizes, narrow width that use posts on 8" centers and wide width that uses posts on 10" centers. The narrow seat has 14" wide x 12" deep bottom cushion and 12" wide x 8" high back cushion. The wide seat has 18" wide x 12" deep cushion and a much larger 18" wide x 16" high back cushion. This type of seat is only used for temporary passenger seating and is not recommended for full time use.

When replacing an original seat and there is not a flat surface for your new seat to mount to then a Freedman new seat pedestal is required. All of our high back seats require a flat surface to mount. Seat pedestals come with a fixed top, tilt top and rotating top. All models adjust in height. We also carry an adaptor plate used with high back seats in Grumman Olson only. If you converting from a tubular frame seat with a built in pedestal our adapter plate with a flat top surface is needed. The square shaft will fit into your existing floor pedestal mount on your Grumman.

A seat belt or seatbelt, sometimes called a safety belt, is a safety harness designed to secure the occupant of a vehicle against harmful movement that may result from a collision or a sudden stop. Seat belts are intended to reduce injuries by stopping the wearer from hitting hard interior elements of the vehicle. Seat belts also absorb energy by being designed to stretch during any sudden deceleration, so that there is less speed differential between the passenger's body and their vehicle interior, and also to spread the loading of impact on the passenger's body. A lap belt is an adjustable strap that goes over the waist. This type of belt is popular when used with passenger seating (jump seats) in stepvans. Three point seat belts are also available for step vans and most popular in the driver's seat. Three point seat belts are infinitely adjustable as they are usually one continuous length. A 3-Point belt helps spread out the energy of the moving body in a collision over the chest, pelvis and shoulders. Mill Supply carries lap belts and three point belts. Lap belts are non-retractable or retractable, and 3-point belts are retractable with a shoulder strap.
