Folding chairs for use in stadiums and arenas are an innovative idea that helps with traffic flow and makes it easier to fit more chairs into the space. Chairs can have folding backs or seats, depending on their use. New folding designs are available that allow stadium and auditorium chairs to take up less space yet retain their comfort for the fan or patron.

Folding Chairs

Envelopes of 13" can be achieved with today's folding stadiums chairs. The envelope is the depth of the chair from front to back. The smaller the envelope, the less space that the chair takes up and the more aisles and chairs that can fit into an arena configuration. A seat that folds will not stick out into the aisle, thus improving traffic flow.

Chairs with folding backs are also available. These chairs are portable models that can be taken to and from events. For stadiums that have bleacher seating, these chairs can be attached to the bleachers with straps or braces. For removal, the back folds down and the straps are detached. This form of folding seat is lightweight, ideal for personal seating because it is easy to carry.

Functional Stadium Seating

Folding chairs make stadium seating more compact whether it is fixed or movable. A seat that folds makes for better traffic flow and helps clean-up crews do their job more efficiently. Another benefit of this seat is the trouble-free enclosed rod and spring mechanisms that help today's folding chair operate smoothly for years of trouble-free use, even outdoors. Advanced no-break plastics and chair design make the folding stadium chair truly functional.
