Sears Seating Launches New Truck Suspension Seat

| January 23, 2018

Sears Seating

Sears Seating, a manufacturer of off-road and over-the-road truck and tractor seating for over 160 years, introduced what it is calling “the next generation of truck suspension seating” with the Atlas II ActiveVRS Suspension Seat. The seat system uses Magneto-Rheological (MR) fluid technology to provide an advanced magnetic ride.

Here’s what’s cool: A position sensor reads the suspension travel 750 times per second, and depending on damping needs,  instantaneously increases or decreases the strength of the magnetic field to stiffen the damper and absorb shock. The result is significantly lower driver exposure to Whole Body Vibration (WBV) – up to 65 percent less exposure – which  reduces fatigue and promotes driver health.

“The ActiveVRS Suspension Seat is good for drivers, and that’s good for trucking companies,” says Sears’ President Kent Wichelt. “We’re proud of the new Atlas II ActiveVRS seats which provide greater stability, rigidity and over-all better ride performance. Creating a safer seat that reduces drivers’ exposure to WBV, reduces fatigue, helps maintain driver awareness and comfort, which means an over-all healthier ride – and that helps with both driver recruitment and retention over the long-haul.”
