Furniture Today Staff, December 7, 2018

GERMANTOWN, Wis. – Motion and smart furniture component supplier Raffel Systems is installing its power recline and heat controls in plush leather seating at several North Carolina movie theaters.

Theater chains AMC, Cinemark and Regal, all with theaters in the Piedmont Triad area, have added premium seating to provide their customers an experience as comfortable as their living room at home. Such seating is a competitive advantage in attracting movie-goers relative to standard seats.

Raffel Systems partners with residential, contract and bedding companies to bring technology to furniture and give users a more robust experience.

“It’s always exciting seeing our technology in motion,” said Paul Stangl, president of Raffel Systems. “The recline and heat control is the perfect example of partnering with a furniture company and elevating its product to the next level by integrating our technology.”
