Is Really This!!
DON'T BE FOOLED BY THE MYTH
(Hercules even requires assembly - up to 14 screws)
HERCULES CHURCH CHAIR
1. Each Hercules church chair REQUIRES ASSEMBLY!
2. Each chair requires 6 wood screws to attach the back (2 people to complete). Over torquing screws will cause them to strip. Because of the hand assembly, your church chair backs will often vary in height - creating uneven rows.
3. 20 gauge adjustable ganging device on each side of chair. 2 screws on each side to facilitate adjustment.
4. Metal book racks also require assembly. 4 screws are required. Once installed, chair will not stack.
5. Total number of screws to complete assembly is 14!
6. Average total assembly time per Hercules church chair, with a minimum of 3 people is 7 to 10 minutes per chair, for about 6 to 9 chairs per hour. An order of 200 church chairs will take a team of 3 at least 22 hours to build!
7. Hercules' ganging device is a flat metal stamping of 20 gauge (.0359-inch) very thin metal which easily bends and which is screwed in place. Our ganging devices are 6 gauge (.2" diameter) solid steel rod which is 6 times the thickness of the Hercules ganging device, and is welded in place.
8. If assembled as directed, the Hercules' cutaway lumbar support position is too low for most parishioners' backs. It presses into the seated person's upper buttocks rather than the lower back, causing discomfort vs. aiding comfort.
