Theater & Auditorium Seating
Different styles of worship call for different styles of seating. Many Catholic & Liturgical congregations find a need for seating other than traditional pews and chairs for their services and special events. Sauder answered this need for auditorium seating by designing Clarity™ specifically for the Catholic & Liturgical worship environment. Clarity™ Auditorium Seating was developed with Sauder's market expertise & design technology, offering the quality, craftsmanship, and functional benefits that customers have come to expect from us.
Sauder's standard pew ends are also compatible with Clarity™ seating. Pew ends allow a wide variety of ways to customize your worship environment to reflect the image of traditional interiors.
