Aftermarket Truck Seats

Though you might not be on your feet all day like workers in some professions, sitting in the driver’s seat for ten hours is no picnic. Perched on the wrong seat for most of your day, you’re likely to contract a whole host of body pains, not to mention serious chiropractic problems. If you’d rather skip the pain and save money on those chiropractic bills, taking time to invest in a comfortable and sturdy chair is a wise idea. But custom chairs for semi-trucks are not cheap, and being sure to get a chair that will suit your needs isn’t easy. By comparing chairs features and prices before you buy, however, you’ll be able to make a purchase that is perfect for you and your back.

Custom chair emporium, Industrial Seats, makes that comparing step even easier. By visiting their website at, customers can search a plethora of custom semi-truck seats in order to decide which seat is best for them. Though the site does not offer seats only for semi-trucks—it features custom seating for forklifts, off-highway vehicles, and backhoes as well—the selection for semi-trucks is varied. According to the site, products from the two leading brands in seating, National and Sears Seating, are offered, in addition to chairs manufactured by other companies.

Just one of the seats offered, the Sears Seating Premium Elite 80, is a step up from any standard semi seat. If you’re looking for comfort and style, you’ll find it in this model, which is offered in both black leather as well as black fabric. Like most Sears Seating products, this chair features the ATLAS ergonomic design. The design is unique because it was crafted to fit the average truck driver—literally. The company surveyed 193 truck drivers in order to determine the seat’s dimensions. The seat was also tested with a weight that simulated a 280-pound driver, and it lasted more than three times as long as the other seats tested.

In addition to the design, the seat also has orthopedic features designed to prevent back pain, such as cushions with lumbar support, a top-of-the-line shock absorber, adjustable seating for all sizes, and adjustable arm rests. With a 10-year and million mile warranty, this chair is not going to bite the dust easily.

But the Sears Seating Premium Elite 80 is far from the only high quality choice on Industrial Seats’ web site. The National Seating Premium Series offers the Black Cycler, an ergonomic design developed by an orthopedic professor. The system uses air to send pulses throughout the length of the drive, which encourage blood flow and reduce pressure.

Once again built for style in addition to comfort, the seats come in either stylish black or black and gray leather. The chair also features the ability to recline, offers shock absorbers, and is fitted with state of the art contoured cushions.

When you’re looking for an orthopedic slant on the traditional semi-truck driver’s chair, in addition to some style, Industrial Seats is a great place to peruse choices. By offering premium brands and excellent descriptions, it’s easy for a driver to give the chairs a virtual test before they buy, and because most of the seats featured on this web site have long warranties, placing an order online isn’t a risk.
