About Our Aluma-Kneel Pew and Chair Kneelers

solid wood

Aluma-Kneel Aluminum Kneelers provide churches with a lightweight alternative to traditional wood and metal frame kneelers. Our kneelers are built from high grade 1” square aluminum tubing, providing a lightweight frame without sacrificing strength and durability. The same 1” tubing is used for the kneeler legs and arms. There are no plastic or pot metal die cast parts used, which helps to ensure that no cracking or breaking occurs. The use of 1” tubing also provides a sleek kneeler design.

Our deluxe Aluma-Kneel kneelers are attached to the pew using a ½” thick kneeler bracket. The kneeler bracket is machined from 1” thick aluminum stock, as opposed to the use of a pot metal die cast method. This material choice eliminates the likelihood of the kneeler bracket warping or breaking over time.

Call Ratigan-Schottler today and we will provide you with a proposal for a new installation or replacement. If desired, a sales representative can also provide your committee with a presentation at your convenience.
