Be-Ge Range of Ergonomic Train Driver Seats for the Railway Industry

Be-Ge Range of Ergonomic Train Driver Seats for the Railway Industry Train_Sthlm_int

When operating a train, you need a seat that is not only comfortable, but firm with good posture and adjustment to keep the driver alert. From the long haul intercity trains through to the "stop start" commuter, each train needs a seat that is designed around the cab and more importantly the operator.

During a working shift operating a train, the human back goes through every extremity not only from the driving position but from vibrations from the track and even in some cases simple "jolts" created by carriages engaging when moving off or coming to a halt.

A Common Misconception is a really soft spongy seat is the best option for maximum comfort, whilst this is true for the first hour of sitting, quickly the body does find this uncomfortable and occupants start to move in the seat trying to gain a suitable posture. In order to maintain a low level of VDV the seat must be firm with good support and with various adjustment levels of the seat to change the vibration direction on the human body throughout the working day.

Train_Drivers_SeatBe-Ge range of seats have been established in the European Rail market for many years and have been installed in both new and refurbished trains in Sweden, Denmark, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Netherlands, Spain and Portugal. We have found that both UK Train drivers and ASLEF are demanding more and more comfortable drivers seats for the UK market and wish to replicate the train driver seat that is enjoyed by their European cousins and Be-Ge is being specified in UK Rail applications.

We are the driver’s seat of choice with leading operators such as DSB, SNCF, U-Bahn, RET, Nedtrain, LKAB, SNCB and WienerLinien

Our rail seats are Robust, have excellent ergonomics & vibration control, a wide range of adjustments such as gas assisted height adjustment & dampening,  adjustable armrests, lumbar support and slide rails to allow different height operators to sit comfortably at the controls.

Train_Drivers_Seat_1We work closely with the Train drivers and Train Driver Unions to adapt our seats to suit their needs and can alter controls and functions exactly to the end users requirements. Using seating technology and know-how gained from our 24 hour operators chairs, we not only supply a seat that is comfortable to use and focuses on reducing back related injuries, but in this highly critical environment it is a train divers seat designed to keep the driver alert.   

We at Be-Ge believe that the seat is the one unit in the vehicle that is the direct interface between the train driver and the rest of the train, by fitting the correct seat it will offer the most satisfaction from drivers in terms of operation, working functionality and comfort

Be-Ge Group an early pioneer in Automotive Seating

Be-Ge Group an early pioneer in Automotive Seating

When our founder Bror Göthe Persson took over the import and sales of Ford motorcars in Oskarshamn back in 1934 . He was somewhat of a visionary with an early insight into the role and importance the then "infant" automotive industry was about to play in the world.

In 1941 Be-Ge cars became sales agent for Scania Vabis trucks and this is where Be-Ge's fascination and involvement in trucks & buses began, today we are the World's oldest Scania dealer. 

In 1946 AB Be-Ge Karosserifabrik was established to manufacture truck cabs. It was quite common back then for truck manufacturers to outsource production of cabs to independent bodybuilders and Bror Göthe Persson realised that there was a potential, not just to make a cab similar to other cabs on the market, but lead the way on improving manufacture, design, comfort and more importantly safety.

Due to Scania's continued expansion, in 1966, Scania-Vabis acquired ownership of our cab manufacturing plant. Scania still manufactures truck cabs there today in Oskarshamn and is one of Kalmar County’s largest employers.

Even back in the 1940's Bror Göthe Persson valued the importance of vehicle safety and was a pioneer in truck occupant safety and began testing our cab strength in three directions vertically and dynamically. This was unheard of at the time and even though its something we take for granted as a norm today, it shows the pioneering spirit and importance in safety within Be-Ge right from its early days.

Bror Göthe Persson then turned his attention to driver comfort and introduced the World's first driver suspension seat, again this is something we take for granted as standard equipment today, back then competitors seating was basic bench seats with the only hope of comfort coming from mattress type springs in the seat cushion.

Now run by the third generation of Bror Göthe's family, today there is a bit of Bror Göthe's pioneering spirit in all of us at Be-Ge.

We have our manufacturing plants based in Sweden, Denmark & Lithuania and a network of dealers spanning the globe

We are proud of what we do and its reflected in the products we produce. Our investment in vehicle seating safety testing puts us at the forefront of seating supply solutions.

On a final note why did we choose the name Be-Ge? the reason was that no one could pronounce Bror Göthe's name correctly, so he earned the nick name "Be-Ge"
