CHIP resin folding and stacking chairs (AKA White Wedding Folding Chairs)

***CHIP folding and stacking chairs***
***10 lbs. including padded seat.
***Most similar to wood shape
***Available in White, Black, Forest Green and Light Brown & Redwood color
***Made in the USA

Our chairs are folding, stacking (horizontally and vertically), and come equipped with an interlocking feature that makes moving and storing them quite simple. They are strong, durable, weatherproof, UV protected, don't need painting and require very little maintenance.

Bi-component resin made with gas assist technology, means that they are built with two materials that have different properties working as one: extreme UV protection and strength.

SOLID...As a ROCK

The LOAD rests on the two bars supporting the seat, NOT on the screws as on similar chairs.

Static vertical weight testing FEDERAL SPECIFICATION AA-C-291F

MATERIAL

The material used at Drake is a composite multi-layer techno-polymer which allows the manufacturing of the strongest and lightest (10lbs, only) special event resin chairs on the market.
CHIP chairs are manufactured with a TWO COMPONENT RESIN (CO-INJECTION) plus GAS system - the highest standards in plastic manufacturing.

The result is an outer, smooth all weather resistant aesthetic skin, and an inner expanded closed cell modified resin with high mechanical resistance that behaves like a bone and gives exceptional strength to the chair.

COMPARATIVE TEST

Chip chairs are strong, no doubt, they are indeed performing better than chairs with metallic reinforcement both in static weight tests and dynamic weight tests (=Chair Drop Functional Load – A 300 lb weight is positioned 6” above the seat of the chair and allowed to free-fall onto the center of the seat).
We took the best chair with metallic reinforcement from the competition, and here are the testing results:

STATIC/vertical static load testings:
• Chip chairs average load before failure: 2200 lbs.
• Competitor’s best chairs chairs average load before failure: 1500 lbs.

DYNAMIC/with a 300lbs. weight drop @ 6" above center seat:
• 100% Chip chairs remain intact
• 60% of the Competitor’s best chairs fail (the seat breaks)

COMFORTABLE

The 1/4" flexible padded resin seat is more comfortable than the wood seat. It snaps in and snaps out in a flash without any tools or screws:
- do not warp with humidity
- more comfortable because of the flexibility of the material they are made of.

FOLDING CHAIR CLEANING

We suggest water and mild soap to clean up dust and common everyday dirt.

When “hard to clean” marks are found on the WHITE chairs (only on white chairs!), SOFT SCRUB or an equivalent product will work just fine.

Steam cleaning could be performed from time to time and only when really needed. The operating 212°F-230°F temperature range is considered safe.

And....yes, Drake resin folding chairs can be washed in automatic chair washing machines.

ATTENTION before using any kind of cleaner, make sure that it is is not going to affect the materials of the chair, particularly the vinyl of the seat pad . Try the cleaner on a small area and make sure no visible damages appear for at least 5-7 days before using the cleaner consistently.
In any case the vinyl (PVC) of the seat should not be treated with acids, solvents, sodium hydroxide (caustic soda NaOH), sodium hypochlorite NaClO (liquid bleach).

FOLDING CHAIR HANDLING

Our chairs have been designed to be easily folded, stacked and moved in stacks.

A chair pallet protecting the first chair of the stack is a must.
At Drake, we supply chair dollies that roll on casters and chair pallets that can be used with hand truck for deliveries, or with pallet-jacks for warehouse moving of multiple stacks at a time.

We also suggest strapping and covering the stacks, to protect chairs during transportation.

We supply 2 different chair stack covers, which are strong, protective, and easy to use for every chair move (both to and from the customer or simply warehousing). One is water resistant, the other is not.

We do supply plastic bag rolls that cover the entire stack as well as boxes, as an economy packaging/warehousing system.


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

MAINTENANCE, REPAIR & WARNINGS

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 cleaning.

Inspect and check the integrity of each chair every time before deploying it, making sure all bolts and parts are firmly tightened.

If any parts are missing, damaged, or worn, stop using the chair.

This chair is designed for seating one person at a time and for sitting only.
Do not stand on the chair.
Do not use it as a step ladder.

In the event of damages from extremely rough handling or improper use, 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.
