Which Is Best? Wood or Resin Folding Chairs

May 20, 2016

Deciding between wood or resin folding chairs is not easy. Both boast quality materials, and each has its strengths. Choosing which one is right for your company is a decision you’ll have to make based on your needs and clientele.

We will take a look at each type of chair separately to help you decide which folding chair is right for you.

Classic Wood

Wood folding chairs are traditional and have a look and feel that has come to embody class. Older clients prefer wood chairs. Wood is usually slightly more affordable than resin folding chairs and several pounds lighter. There is a wider selection of finishes for wood than resin, but the finish on a wood chair is easier to mar and requires touch-ups. Wood folding chairs colors include:  fruitwood, mahogany, natural as well as white and black.

Next Generation Resin

Wood or Resin Folding Chairs

Resin folding chairs are hard to beat. They are stronger and last longer. While they are a little more expensive, the resin chairs cost less than a dollar more than wood. Resin chairs are easier to stack due to their built in stacking guides; you don’t have to worry about them getting wet, and they are easier to clean. However, colors are limited to black, white and mahogany.

The decision between wood or resin folding chairs is a common issue for rental and corporate clients. The Chiavari Chair Company has more than a decade of experience helping companies of all sizes select the right chairs.
