Thanks to its practical folding function, the seat of the Samsonite A chair can be easily folded, making it convenient for storage and transportation. The ergonomic shape of the chair ensures excellent seating quality, and at just two and a half kilograms, it is lightweight and easy to carry. With a width of 45.50 centimeters (18 inches), a seat depth of 40 centimeters (15 inches), and a seat height of 44 centimeters (17 inches), the chair offers comfortable dimensions for seating. Its timeless and simple design, along with weatherproof materials, make it suitable for outdoor use.

Product Description

The seat and backrest of the chair are made of high-density polypropylene, while polyethylene is used for the interchangeable feet. The sturdy tubular steel frame provides reliable support, and the holes in the seat allow rainwater to drain off easily. This, combined with the weatherproof materials, makes it well-suited for outdoor use.

Weather-Resistant Labels, Including Block Labels

For optimal orientation, we provide numbering options, as well as custom-made, weather-resistant labels, including block signs. You can choose between block sign sets with Plexiglas inserts or sets with hard foam panels, both displaying the block designations either as laminated DIN A3 prints or stickers.

Connecting Rows of Chairs with Floor Bars

To connect rows of chairs, we offer floor bars that can be hooked into the lower cross struts of the chair legs. This maintains the spacing between chairs, allowing guests to comfortably and safely move between rows. Adjustable floor bars are also available to accommodate different row spacing requirements.


  • Waterproof seat numbers, block signs, and floor bars
  • CAD design to help optimize the planning process and ensure compliance with safety regulations
  • A range of pedestrian and drivable flooring to service all site access requirements

The Samsonite A folding chair is ideal for managing spacious seating arrangements at temporary large-scale events. With the help of corresponding clips, the chairs can be connected to form stable rows, ensuring comfortable distances between seats.

Quick Assembly and Disassembly

Assembly and disassembly are quick and efficient. The chair is built to last with its weather-resistant metal and plastic construction and perforated seat, making it suitable for outdoor use, even for long periods.
