RML Industry News
RML Appointed BSS Distributor. Issued January 6th 2006

Revolutionary Seat now available from RML

RML Group and Bald Spot Sports (BSS) have joined forces to distribute a revolutionary custom-made race seat system throughout Europe.

BSS seats are made with an advanced foam technology which offers safety benefits unrivalled by other products on the market. With the appointment of RML as its exclusive European distributor these products are now available to teams and outlets in the UK and across continental Europe.

Based in Indiana, USA, BSS produces the technologically superior Creafoam™ Single-Impact and Creasorb™ Multi-Impact race seats which are supplied to professional teams, drivers and race enthusiasts across the States.

The Single-Impact seat curing process is less time-critical and therefore enables a near perfect fit for the driver to be achieved at the first attempt. The seat not only surrounds and holds the occupant securely in place but during impact it limits movement relative to the vehicle while better absorbing the shock-load and has reduced the number and severity of injuries received during race and testing incidents.

The Multi-Impact seat offers all the benefits of the above but has even greater impact resilience, especially where high-speed secondary impacts occur. After absorbing the energy of an initial impact the seat instantly returns to its original shape and integrity. After electronically scanning a driver’s existing seat (or one created specially using Creafoam™) to create a 3D model the seat is then precisely machined from material called Creasorb™, recreating both the inner and outer seat shapes precisely. The area under the driver’s shoulders to the base of the spine is then cut out and replaced with a central insert plug. In the instance of a heavy impact the central plug can be removed and replaced with a new custom made insert for added security. The 3D computer model is kept on file and enables an insert or complete seat to be re-ordered without the driver having to be available for a time consuming re-fit.
