Highly recommended for its compact size, quality and durability. The 18″ x 16″ wall-mounted hallway seat is heavy duty with a weight capacity of 300 lbs. Can also be mounted under the hand rail. A self-locking mechanism allows the seat to fold up securely against the wall when not in use. The constant friction bracket guides the U-shaped yoke freely up and down, resulting in a low pressure constant spring action to raise and lower the seat. Works well for the long hallways of nursing homes, letting residents sit and rest when tired. The 1/2″ thick seat top is sturdy high density polyethylene. Comes with side handles to enable easy up and down movement.
