At IPS Perforating, Inc., we provide perforation services for a variety of materials and applications. For example, one of the most popular uses of our services is to perforate leather for automotive seats. In this article, we will go over some of the benefits of perforated automotive seats so that you can decide if they are right for you.
- Better Temperature Control. One of the drawbacks to standard leather automotive seats is that they tend to get very hot in the summer and cold in the winter. To deal with this problem, many modern cars are equipped with temperature control systems for the seats, and these tend to be integrated with perforated leather. The holes in perforated automotive seats are able to distribute the heated or cooled air much more efficiently, making your ride more comfortable.
- Better Breathability. Even if your car doesn’t have temperature-controlled seats, perforated leather can still make a big difference in your overall comfort. This is because perforated automotive seats are more breathable than standard leather ones, meaning that air can circulate around the riders more easily and keep them from getting sweaty.
- Increased Noise Dampening. A third benefit of perforated automotive seats is that they can actually help dampen noise from the road and keep the inside of the car quieter. Basically, when sound waves hit the tiny holes, the wave form is broken up and can’t keep bounding around the cabin, reducing the noise level. This means that you will be able to enjoy listening to music or talking to your passengers with fewer distractions.
