SEATING: Muirhead, with its 180 years of sustainable innovation, helps operators keep pace with ever-changing challenges, it explains.

Muirhead Active Hygiene Leather helps operators to safeguard passengers, it states.

The bus and coach sector faces rapidly increasing demands for comfort, hygiene and sustainability, it explains. Muirhead’s low-carbon natural leather enjoys repeat specification from operators and designers across all passenger transport modes.

Muirhead’s huge range of colours, finishes, textures and specifications are provided from stock with no minimum order requirements and has a full certification to R118.03 annexe 6, 7 and 8.

Muirhead says that its leather delivers durability and exceptional performance - with flame resistance, light weight, easy cleaning and even anti-viral properties.

These high-performance attributes combine to make Muirhead’s luxurious, soft and comfortable leather a durable, hard-wearing and long-lasting material – dramatically reducing the total cost of ownership, it says.

In addition, Muirhead provides a market-leading warranty, it explains.

Muirhead Active Hygiene Leather helps operators to safeguard passengers. This self-disinfecting leather works continually to reduce viruses - including SARS-Cov-2, H3N2 and H1N1. No specialist cleaning is required, it says.

Muirhead says that it makes the lowest carbon leather in the world at only 1.1kg CO2e per hide. Muirhead is also committed to the Science-Based Targets initiative (SBTi), ensuring that all sustainability data is clearly explained and independently verified as part of its rigorous life cycle analysis.
