Chiavari Chairs by Drake

CHIAVARI CHAIRS: fiberglass reinforced resin stacking ballroom chairs for amazing events

RESIN CHIAVARI stacking chair.

Hard to believe that... our chairs are NOT WOOD. The aesthetic respects the old traditional look but... deep inside Drake Chiavari stacking chairs have been re-engineered ground-up. The NEW MIX of techno-polymers they are made of, makes them exceptionally strong, sturdy and a far better alternative to wood, metal, or any other plastic chair with a metallic insert, at a fraction of the weight.

BEST SELLING CHIAVARI CHAIRS for more than one reason:

ultra light-weight: (ONLY 10 lb.) means easy transportation and set up

ultra-strong: due to a high resistant multi-layer techno-polymer resin mix for strength and durability

long lasting: weatherproof and UV protected with color consistency throughout the entire chair

low maintenance: no sanding or painting needed

easy & safe stacking and interlocking: our Chiavari chairs stack with a CLICK, reducing tilting and moving

taylored cushions and pads we use tailored cushions designed just for our seat, enhancing the lines of the chair, whether top of the line double piped cushions or vinyl pads

chair shoes: we can supply chair shoes for a party on the beach or on the grass, reducing dramatically any sinking problem (outdoor use: recommended!)

100% recyclable: unlike chairs with metallic inserts, Drake chairs ARE EASILY RECYCLABLE. We care for the environment and we hope you do the same...


Available in White, Black, Light Brown, Gold, Silver.

***SHIPPED KD: Easy assembly, no glue required.

MATERIAL

The material used at Drake is a composite multi-layer techno-polymer which allows the manufacturing of a very strong and extra light weight Chiavari resin chair.

CHIAVARI chairs are manufactured with a TWO COMPONENT RESIN (CO-INJECTION) system - the highest standard in plastic manufacturing. The result is an outer, smooth all weather resistant aesthetic skin, and an inner expanded closed cell modified resin FIBERGLASS ADDED, with high mechanical resistance that behaves like a bone and gives exceptional strength to the chair.

CHIAVARI CHAIR HANDLING

The best way is stack them, cover them, and tighten. A chair pallet is always handy (the protection of the first chair of the stack is less critical than in folding stacking chairs operations, but VERY useful).
With our chairs, we use plastic custom made pallets, or regular wood pallets with pallet shoes that secure the first chair of the stack to the pallet itself. A chair pallet eases up stack handling with both hand-trucks or pallet-jacks. Some of our customers use PE film or bags to wrap the chair for storage or transport.

CHIAVARI CHAIRS WAREHOUSING

The DRAKE "pallet shoes" for Chiavari chairs, can be screwed into a wood pallet and secure the first chair of the stack to the pallet. A 48"x20" wood pallets, fits 2 stacks of chairs back to back (5+5 chairs or 6+6 chairs). A similar pallet can be moved easily with a hand-truck as well as with a pallet-jack.
A regular 48"x42" pallet equipped with pallet shoes, fits 4 stacks of chairs back to back (5+5+5+5=20 chairs or 6+6+6+6=24 chairs). Chairs have to be strapped and secured for additional safety. Higher stacks, of 7, 8, 9 or 10 chairs can be used, depending on the goal: maximize warehouse space (static skids) or ease of handling.


***WARNING!!!!***
DRAKE CHIAVARI Chairs stack so nicely that we have to remind you:
higher stacks are more unstable than short ones. For static stacks, the number of chairs in a stack is not an issue, but if you are moving your stacks, do not exceed in the number of chairs stacked: SAFETY COMES FIRST, ALWAYS!!!!
Do not attempt to make similar high stacks with woods.

NOTICE: DO NOT USE COTTON COVERS WITH RESIN CHAIRS, as the static electricity produced by the two materials combined, attracts dust and any kind of dirt.

MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR

Buying our products means never having to paint a chair again. Because the colors of our products run all the way through them they will never need painting. The only ordinary maintenance required is a wipe down with a mild liquid detergent and water.

Besides regular cleaning, check the chair structural integrity and screws every time before use.

In the event of damage due to extremely rough handling, do not attempt to glue broken parts back together. Call us for spare parts. We'll be there to assist you in the best way we can.

Chiavari shoes: no more sinking

Break the rules and move seating to locations that have always been traditionally difficult for chairs.
Our chair shoes increase support for the chair legs on difficult ground, greatly reducing the sinking of the legs.

Whether on the beach, on a green at your favorite golf club, or simply on a backyard lawn, our support system lets you bring our classy Chiavari chairs and your unforgettable events to a whole new level outdoors.

Our Chiavari shoes are easy to deploy. Snap them onto the chair legs, no tools required, snap them off when finished.
Our Chiavari shoes do not interfere with the chairs ability to stack. Chairs can be collected, stacked, stored, moved and re-deployed without removing the shoes.
Small holes in the supporting plate area, allow the lawn to breath, greatly minimizing any damage to it even with extended use of the chair on the grass.

One set includes 4 shoes for one chair.

Chiavari shoes: secure chairs to a pallet

Our Chiavari shoes can be used to secure our Chiavari chairs to a wood pallet, for easier and secure transportation.
When one set of Chiavari shoes is screwed into a wood pallet, it secures the first chair of the stack to the pallet, preventing the chairs from sliding, keeping them firmly in place on the pallet.

Use of additional strapping (not included) is suggested before moving a stack of chairs.

One set includes 4 shoes for one chair.

So... WHY DRAKE CHIAVARI CHAIRS?

Because we combine the best materials with the best engineering! There's no need for metal reinforcement inside our resin Chiavari chairs that adds unnecessary weight, causes stress points, and makes the chair environmentally UNFRIENDLY. Drake uses a composite multi-layer techno-polymer material that allows the manufacturing of stacking resin Chiavari chairs to be strong and light (only 10lbs). Until now, no one has been able to deliver a long lasting plastic Chiavari chair as strong and light as Drake's. It makes transportation, storing and set up for events affordable and easy.
