Folding stadium seating allows for more chairs to fit into a stadium, auditorium or theatre. It also facilitates the movement of people within the rows. The design and mechanism of the folding chair have changed little since ancient times, and its function remains the same. Anywhere there is a need to economize space, there is a need for the folding chair.

Folding Stadium Seating

In large venues, the folding chair allows people to move through the rows more easily. Folding chairs in stadiums and auditoriums have seats that pivot upwards to give more space for people to walk through. Stadium folding chairs are generally made of weather-resistant plastic that allow for a more narrow profile. A stadium seat can fold to a width of only 13". Upholstered auditorium seats will take up more space in general, since the padding does not allow the seat to close as completely.

The folding stadium style seat can be used anywhere that large crowds gather. It is the most practical solution to the problem of organizing large groups of people into a space. Folding stadium chairs come in portable styles for greater flexibility in seating. Visitors can pick up and relocate their folding chair, and some even attach to bleachers and can easily be removed if necessary.

The Practical Solution

Since its invention, the folding chair has been a practical solution to the need for portable and compact seating. Today's folding stadium seating draws on that tradition to provide fixed and movable seating for sports and entertainment venues. There are many options in materials and styles of folding seating for large-scale events.
