I have Escapes. Had them for almost a year now, most of them squeak badly when reclining. I guess I should buy some baby powder...

Try some Tri-flo spray first, has graphite and several grades of lubricant mixed. Have you asked Roman about the squeaking issue?

Hoping my Tributes will arrive this week.wink.gif

Referring to leather on leather squeeking... not in the recline mechanism.

Try realligning your chairs. I have a curved config and found that I had them angled into each other a little too tight, once I realligned, no noise at all.

Shall I realign my Two Arm chairs, which are the noisiest of all?

Mine were squeaking horribly.  I put some baby powder on my hand and rubbed it between the arm and cushion and the squeaking was completely gone on all chairs but one.  That one was angled slightly so that the back corner was tight against the chair next to it.  A slight adjustment and all is good.

 

The first time we had some friends over to watch a movie, everyone was laughing uncontrollably when we all started reclining our chairs at the same time.

Ha! Sounds like what happened here, but then I never took care of it! So my friends are all used to sounding like they are farting while reclining my seats.... smile.gif

I'm going to run downstairs right now and push my escapes as close together as possible.

I'm looking into buying a set of Tributes. Anyone living near Minneapolis/St. Paul that has one I can try out - or any other Fusion chair?

Thanks!

So are the squeeky chairs just the Escapes or others? also, are they just the bonded leather or are the full leathers doing it too?

If anyone is near baltimore, and would consider a drop by to see any of Fusion line, let me know. I've been wrestling with riding up to see them but upper jersey is a good 3 hours each way. I'm leaning heavily toward the escapes with leather, but am open to seeing any of the other product line.

Any leather chair, couch, etc. will squeak.   The good news is that a very small amount of baby powder solved the problem completely.

Just curious about you guys with Escape 1019's and your riser height. I ran the calculator and it look like I need about 8" but I was think 12" would be needed. I would appreciate any imput! Here are the distances I plugged into the equation:

1. Enter the distance from the floor to the base of your screen:
inches 28.5"

2. Seated in your front row chair, enter the distance from the floor to the top of your head:
inches 48"

3. Seated in your second row chair (without the riser), enter the distance from the floor to your eye's:
inches 48"

4. Seated in your front row chair, enter the distance from the screen to your eyes:
inches 150"

5. Seated in your rear row chair (without the riser), enter the distance from the screen to your eyes:
inches 210

6. Click Submit to Calculate:


Your Recommended Riser Height
7.8 inches

Seems a a little low to me? confused.gif

#2 should be about 45" unless you are really tall
#3 should be about 5" less (unless your eyes are on very top of your head smile.gif ), so should be 40"

recommended riser height comes up to 11.60"

12" riser height would be a bare minimum, and I would add a few inches to accommodate for a situation when people seating in the second row of seats recline a bit more than people seating in the front row.

Roman: I have the Lagoons in an IOVOOVOI configuration. I'm rebuilding my theater and the riser that will be behind my 4 lagoons (which are stored away) Can you tell me what the depth is for the bend? From the back of the OO (loveseat) to the back of the far armrests, what is the change in depth? 6" ? 8"?

Jeff,

I do not have this particular measurement, but I am sure if you have a set like that you can measure it, can't you?

According to the specs the difference between the straight and curved set with the loveseat in terms of depth is 2.25"

I have had my escapes for almost two years now and everything has been great. I have noticed that just recently the blue led's have begun to burn out as 2 of the 3 chairs have 1 or 2 buttons burnt out each. Is there a way to replace these lights? The buttons still work fine but it is obviously a bit tough to find them in the dark. I have the long warranty but i wouldn't expect them to be part of that. I wish I had the new cupholders as I am sure more will begin to go out after being on 24/7 365 for several years.

Everything else from material, comfort and reclining mechanisms are exactly the same as they were the day I received them so anyone wondering about long term reliability should not be concerned.

I am not sure about replacing individual LEDs, but I know Roman has the new cupholders available for the Escapes that turn the Blue Light off when you lock them. I have three extra of the Original Cupholders if you don't mind the Blue Lights being on. I never did send them back to Roam to get the $20 each back. If you are interested in them, PM me. Otherwise, I recommend checking with Roman on the new ones...they work very well and it is nice to be able to turn those lights off in a dark theater.

Thanks Roman, got your PM. I again want to state for the record I am amazed how I literally cannot tell the difference in these chairs from the day I bought them. Probably used on average 4 nights a week for 2 years. Impressed.

Can someone provide the back space for your 1019's? I'm in process of building a riser and considering building a back bar and need the dimensions. Thanks! smile.gif

Dave,

You only need about 4"-6" behind the chair for full recline. The minimum riser depth should be 6'-6.5'.

I'm curious if anyone has frankensteined any of the chairs together lol. My front row is 3 tributes but I'm curious if I could get away with a lagoon on the end since I have the room.

I personally would not do it. I do not think it will look right, unless you are after "frankensteined" look smile.gif

I just wanted to give a big thanks to the OP, alittletank, who was kind enough to allow my wife and I to come over and sit in his chairs. Allen and his wife were extremely hospitable and gave us their time on a Sunday afternoon to walk us through the decisions they made for their theater. Having mine under construction, it was nice to see the finished product for encouragement. It's a lot of money to put down without trying the chairs out first, so we are tremendously grateful that we could look at them before purchasing.

I've read a lot of descriptions in this thread about the softness, calling them soft but firm and whatnot. My wife originally described wanting a very plush chair when we first started looking, so any mention of "firm" worried me. Having sat in them now, they are just plain comfortable. My wife and I agree they are better than anything we seen previously at Ashley or Rooms-To-Go. They are very nice.

I've been debating between the Tributes and Lagoons but I think the Lagoons will do what we need them to do. I would probably have sprung for the Tributes if the headrest was electric, but that would surely increase the price a lot. The Escapes are just too big for our space (and beyond of what we're looking to spend for six chairs).

Roman, I spoke with you this morning and requested the swatches. We're looking forward to placing an order once the swatches come in to help us decide. I know I said black this morning, but it was decided that brown is the leading option now. Just have to decide between bonded or leather/vinyl. Can't wait to place an order!
