Aftermarket M1 and N1 Passenger Seats for your Van – From Jany a market leader in Homologated Type Approved Seating

Converting a standard van to a crew van can make a shrewd investment, whilst most OEM manufacturers offer crew vans in their range with rear passenger seats, they can not only command a price premium, but sometimes they lack the flexibility of being able to remove the rear passenger seats.

Our fully approved and tested Homolgated M1 and N1 passenger seating solutions can offer the best of both worlds, using our unique twinplate tracking system, our passenger seats can be removed entirely from the van so it can be used as a full van, but perhaps at the weekend when you want to carry your family around become a 5/6 seater van derived car.

By Investing in quality tested passenger seats that meet the current VOSA and VCA M1 and N1 requirements not only make sound financial sense when you come to sell the vehicle, but also are a mandatory requirement when changing the number of seats on your DVLA log book.
