Fabrics for subway seats

Subway seating fabrics play a key role in the comfort, durability and aesthetics of mass transit systems in cities around the world.

These fabrics are specially designed and manufactured to meet the demanding conditions found in subway trains and cars, where the daily influx of passengers, exposure to dirt, abrasion and the need to maintain a hygienic and attractive environment are paramount considerations.

Durability and resistance to intensive use

One of the main characteristics that distinguishes the subway seat fabrics we manufacture at Muaret Textil is their resistance to abrasion. Due to the high number of passengers using the metro on a daily basis, the seats are exposed to intensive use, which could cause significant wear of the fabric. To address this challenge, Muaret Textil’s custom subway seating fabrics are made of durable materials with high-quality fibers that can withstand friction and repetitive pressure without deteriorating quickly, while providing high fire protection.

Design and functionality in harmony

In addition to abrasion resistance, another critical aspect is light fastness. Subway cars are constantly exposed to artificial lighting indoors, so to maintain their original appearance and prevent fading, subway seat fabrics are treated with reactive dyes.

Ease of cleaning and maintenance is another essential factor for the subway seat fabrics we manufacture at Muaret Textil. Due to the large number of passengers and the possibility of accidental spills and stains, it is essential that the fabrics are easy to clean and maintain in a hygienic condition. Fabrics with stain-resistant and liquid-absorbent properties are common in subway seats around the world, allowing for quick and efficient cleaning to maintain a clean and pleasant environment for passengers.

Innovation in safety and maintenance

Another key consideration is fire safety. We treat subway seat fabrics with flame retardant or flame retardant products to prevent the spread of fire in the event of a fire. This feature is crucial to ensure passenger safety in emergency situations and to comply with safety regulations.
