At two and a half kilograms, the chair is easy to carry. Similarly, it is 45.5 centimeters wide (18 in). Moreover, the seat is 40 centimeters deep (15 in), and the seat height is 44 centimeters (17 in). In addition to this, it offers a timeless, simple design and weatherproof materials.

Best support due to stable frame

We use High-density polypropylene to make the seat and backrest. Moreover, we use polyethylene for interchangeable feet. Therefore, the sturdy tubular steel frame ensures the best hold. So, rainwater can drain off easily through holes in the seat. Upon request, we will take care of the preparations, transport, assembly, and disassembly.


We test the Samsonite A chair for major events. The weatherproof steel and high-density plastic construction make it suited for outdoor use. Moreover, the chairs come with standard PVC chair connectors. Alternatively, we can supply comfort connectors. Similarly, it increases the space between chairs by 4.50 cm (1¾ inch). The space-saving folding design affords high transport efficiency with up to 5,200 chairs per load.

This space-saving Samsonite A folding model is extremely transport-efficient. You can also use it to manage spacious seating arrangements for temporary large-scale events. Moreover, you can connect the folding chairs to form stable rows with the help of the corresponding clips. Therefore, this ensures comfortable distances to the seat neighbors.

Transport efficiency and quick assembly/disassembly

In addition to transport efficiency and quick assembly/disassembly, the Samsonite A folding chair also offers durability. The weather-resistant metal and plastic construction and perforated seat make the black chair model suitable for outdoor use. Moreover, these are ideal for long periods. If table seating is needed, we recommend using the Big Boy folding chair. It has a slightly higher seat height.
