AIRHAWK Truck Cushion FAQsWhat specific type of truck driver is the AIRHAWK® seating system designed for?
The AIRHAWK seating system is designed for all drivers who sit long hours in their trucks. Even with drivers who are in and out of their trucks all day, the AIRHAWK seating system can provide a more stable seating environment and absorb additional shock and vibration.
If I have an air ride seat do I need an AIRHAWK seating system?
An air ride seat will absorb road and truck vibration, but does not have the ability to distribute weight and pressure like the AIRHAWK seating system. Over time, blood flow is still restricted sitting on any foam base seat with or without the air ride system.
Will the AIRHAWK seating system help specific medical problems?
Because of its pressure distribution qualities, the AIRHAWK seating system has been very effective in reducing discomfort from sciatic nerve problems, hemorrhoids, etc.
Is the seating system warmer to sit on?
Sitting on the AIRHAWK seating system will not be any warmer than on your regular seat, although with enhanced blood flow, you may experience a slightly warmer sensation.
Where is the seating system made?
All products are assembled in Belleville, Illinois U.S.A. Most products are made in the U.S.A. Some cushion covers are made in China.
How do you adjust and change the air pressure?
The AIRHAWK seating system comes with a small portable hand air pump that allows you to fill the seating system with air. To inflate the AIRHAWK seating system to optimal firmness, sit on the seating system and open up the valve and allow yourself to sink down into the seating system as far as possible without bottoming out on the seat. Properly inflated you should only be off your existing seat about 0.5". Each seating system comes with detailed pictoral instructions.
