Over the past few weeks we have been getting asked a few prospects and customers on what are the dimensions of our stackable chairs are, how big is a stack of our stackable chairs and how much space will they need to store 100 stackable chairs.
To determine your storage requirements there are a few key measurements that are needed to help with any calculation you will need to do.
Our blow mold stacking chair is (approximately) 31.75” tall x 17.5” wide x 24.5” deep.
2. What happens to these dimensions each time you stack a chair?
Each time a chair is stacked on top of another blow mold stacking chair, it adds 4” to the height. So a stack of 6 chairs would reach a height of about 51.75” (formula: 31.75” + (5 chairs x 4” of additional height). The safest amount that we recommend our blow mold stacking chair to stack is 13 chairs – which would be 79.75” high (31.75” + (12 x 4”)). In addition, the depth needs to be considered. A stack of 13 chairs will cause the depth requirements to increase slightly, resulting in a depth of about 29.9”.
3. And finally, what happens when you pack a bunch of chairs into a storage area?
We need to see how much space would fit 100 blow mold stacking chairs, if we put 4 stacks (stacked 2 x 2) of 13 stacking chairs (52 chairs total) takes up a space that was about 3ft wide x 5ft deep x 6.6ft high.
In order to store 100 chairs, we would need 6 stacks of 13 chairs and 2 stacks of 11 chairs. The storage space footprint was 3ft wide x 10ft deep x 6.6ft high.
4. In the event you need to increase/optimize the number of blow mold stacking chairs you store in a confined area, it is possible to place the top blow mold stacking chair upside down.
Doing so would result in the stack of chairs growing by an additional 1 inch in height and 2.75 inches in depth (due to the angle the back of the seat is inclined at).
