Be-Ge Seat Solutions for Quarry and Mining Machinery Equipment

We have a long history in supplying drivers seats in Quarries, Underground and Open-pit mining equipment. We recognise that the mining and quarry industry is one of the most arduous and hostile environments a seat can endure and our role is to ensure that the seat not only conforms with whole body vibration legislation, but more importantly the shocks are not transferred to the driver.

Specialist industries such as mining and quarry work, need a specialist seat you simply cannot achieve from an off the shelf “out of the box” standard seating range.It requires understanding, modification and accessories to match the mining terrain exactly. We do not just “sell seats” we sell solutions, working closely with OEM’s and end users to come up with a seating solution that matches their environment. The stresses and strains obtained working over rough terrains impacts not only the machine itself but more importantly the driver, this is why we heavily invest in seating technology to combat whole body vibration and can fit devices to the seat to record, monitor and document the vibrations employees endure during their working shift.

Our Be-Ge 3000 seat is the seat of choice with leading OEM dump truck and mining machinery equipment manufacturers due to its excellent anti-vibration properties and vast accessory range.

We also offer a wide range of armrest/joystick controls, Isolation dampers that operate both 2 and 4 way which also can be adjusted on 6 levels, so no matter what the terrain the seat remains level.

Our options list is endless to cater for even the most demanding customers and considering our seat can cost less than 0.5% of the total vehicle cost. The seat is the one unit in the vehicle that is the direct interface between the driver and the rest of the machine, the correct seat offers the most satisfaction from drivers in terms of operation, working functionality and comfort.
