Those familiar with resin folding chairs understand that similar to plastic folding chairs, resin folding chairs lock into the chair below them when stacked. This means that the stack of chairs is secure from shifting and falling over onto the ground or even worse on top of an employee or customer. But wood folding chairs don’t have this locking mechanism because they’re not made by resin molds and machines. So, while some rental companies favour their ability to be refinished, they need a way to secure wood folding chairs to folding chair carts when transporting their chairs to the customer.
Our folding chair cart with airless wheels can fit 29 wood folding chairs stacked on it through a standard height door. Our standard folding chair cart can fit 32 wood folding chairs stacked on it through a standard height door. From our customer intelligence, most party rentals that we’ve talked to use ratcheting tie downs or bungee cords.
In order to properly secure 29 wood folding chairs on a folding chair cart with airless wheels you will need a tie down of at least 16 3/8ft. In order to properly secure 32 wood folding chairs on a standard folding chair cart, you will need a tie down of at least 16 1/4ft as well.
Below is a product that can be purchased to properly secure your wood folding chairs to chair carts. I would recommend purchasing 2 per cart.
