What is the weight capacity of your waiting chairs?

Weight Capacity

Waiting chairs need to be comfortable, but they also need to be practical. Make sure to check the weight capacity that your chairs can support before placing an order. The last thing you want is for a chair to not be up to par and land you in a lawsuit because someone was hurt when it broke underneath them.

For example, if you are a medical professional who specializes in sports injuries/medicine, you deal mainly with athletes on a daily basis. Let's say you treat a lot of football players. You do not want a 280 lb defensive back sitting in a chair that can only support up to 250 lbs. That's like poking a bear with a stick. It's just a bad idea.

So make sure you check the weight capacity of reception furniture before making a purchase. If the capacity is not listed, ask a customer service or sales representative to be sure.
