What to Consider When Buying Resin Folding Event Chairs

Selecting new products can be tricky and overwhelming at times, but it’s crucial to take the time to do your research. It is vital to consider the following questions before buying commercial grade folding chairs for your business.

  • Has the product been tested? Does it function and perform as described?
  • Anyone can bring a product to market, so make sure the product you’re investing in has been well tested for commercial use. There are no other folding chairs like ours on the market with steel reinforcements in the rear legs for extra strength and safety. So you and your patrons can sit back and enjoy yourselves with peace of mind.

    In fact, Nufurn Gladiator & Wimbledon Chairs are the only folding resin chairs with double certification, tested & approved by both AFRDI & BIFMA International, so you’d be crazy to look anywhere else.

  • Who else uses the product in the industry, and what do they think of the product’s usefulness and performance?
  • Don’t just take our word for it! Call around and talk to other users; it will be well worth your time. People who have used the product are your best resource for reviews on product performance.

    100% Australian owned and established since 1996, Nufurn are specialist manufacturers of folding and stacking event chairs and tables, designed to exceed the requirements of the global event furniture industry. Because of this incredible level of expertise, Nufurn have been entrusted to supply resin folding chairs to countless customers both in Australia and the USA, which has the world’s largest event market with over 9000 party hire companies in operation. We would be happy to provide you with customer referrals upon request.

  • Is the product cost effective?
  • A big worry with investing in furniture is its lifespan. I’m sure we would all prefer a one-time expense to supporting the product financially for years to come.

    Many products have future budget implications from the day you buy them. Understand the financial commitment each product carries and plan what the costs will be for the life of the product, such as preventative maintenance, product supplies and repair cost when damaged. Nufurn folding event chairs will be a long term investment for your business and we always manufacture to a commercial standard and offer a commercial warranty that you can rely on. Nufurn products are guaranteed to perform. Other imitation folding chairs deteriorate much sooner, needing to be replaced more often, costing your business an unnecessary cost in replacing folding chairs.

    We are also experts in how best to maintain your products and with our advice they will look even better for longer.

  • What is the company’s ability to support the product into the future?
  • A warranty is only as good as the company that backs the product. Make it your goal to purchase products from companies that are well established in the industry and have a solid reputation of standing behind their products.

    Nufurn supports the Gladiator and Wimbledon chairs with a 10 year commercial warranty and also carry stock spare parts of every single chair component. So if a client does damage a chair or lose a small part, they don’t have to purchase a whole new chair, just replace the part. Do other companies offer this service?

  • Will the product require regular service and maintenance?
  • Who fixes the chairs if they break, and where are they located? This is important: If it breaks it’s going to need to be fixed. If you purchase from overseas suppliers, what chances do you have of contacting the supplier and fixing the problem?

    More often than not, you will simply be told that there was nothing wrong with the products. We hear this same story time and time again from customers who tried to save a little bit upfront. Cheap choices always have expensive consequences in the end.

  • Have you looked at a physical sample to determine your decision?
  • Would you buy a car without taking it for a test drive? There need to be features other than the initial price that draw your attention. Investing in quality translates in to savings when you consider the cost possible future repairs and maintenance.

    Nufurn thrives on customer service. Our reputation is based on our absolute confidence in our folding event chairs. We’d love you to see it first-hand to truly believe it. If you cannot make it into our Sydney showroom to see the real difference, then you can always request a sample for evaluation of the original Gladiator and Wimbledon resin folding chairs.

    We’ll also send you examples of the imitations you may be considering. Sound pretty confident? We are. Because we guarantee, once you sit in our Gladiator or Wimbledon chair and compare it to the competitors, that you’ll choose ours or your money back.

    We want you to purchase the right folding event chairs for your business.
