Berkline Tangiers Fills the Gap
The Berkline Tangiers is one of the best known theater seats in the market today. It is often referred to by it’s model name – the Berkline 13175. This theater seat has established it’s dominance because it fills an important niche that was not addressed by any other brands in home theater. A space saving design with a higher seat back.
Space saving designs were available from a number of the other brands but they all had one serious flaw. Their seat backs were too small. With the Tangiers, Berkline introduced a seat that has a space conscious foot print but also had a respectable 42 inch seat back height. The average seat back height in the industry is 40 inches.
Seat back height is very important and most often overlooked when buying theater seats. You want your seats to be able to accommodate all shapes and sizes and in theater seating it’s always better to have too much than too little.
Being a space saver does not mean there is a sacrifice to the comfort of the seat. The Tangiers still has a wide interior seat width at 23 inches – the size of a business class seat width – but manages to achieve the economies by reducing the width of the arm rests slightly.
