As churches strive to meet the needs of the newest generations of their congregations, innovation will be key. By embracing a more flexible, comfortable approach to church seating, churches will be able to best maximize their space – and in turn maximize their church chair budgets. Classroom Essentials Online, with our years of service to churches today and with our original company, Advantage Church and School Furniture, is well-positioned to offer today’s church exceptional choices in modern, reasonably priced church chairs and church furniture.
When searching for church chairs and sanctuary seating, a buyer will find myriad choices and a wide range of prices. This is where church chair buyer education is key – as there is much more to a church chair than meets the eye. It is the internal construction of the chair, the comfort and durability of the seat and back fabric and padding materials, and finally the fit and finish which make the difference between a sound investment in chairs for your church, or one which will quickly disappoint. The church chairs offered by Classroom Essentials begin with heavy-duty 1″ square tube, 16 gauge steel frame construction. The seats and backs of the church chairs are affixed to the frame with “T-Nut Fasteners” (see illustration at left) to ensure that each church chair will remain sturdy and solid for years to come. Many inexpensive church chairs are assembled only with screws, which can strip and become loose over time, causing squeaking and instability. Each church chair comes equipped with “rocker glides” at the foot of each leg, for snag-free, smooth, quiet movement across carpeting.
These modern church chairs provide an excellent alternative to traditional pews, as they “gang” together easily via our smooth, out-of-the-way ganging devices (see illustration at right). Once interlocked, the even rows of pew chairs mimic traditional pews, yet with much greater comfort and flexibility! For safety and durability, the church chair fabric used should meet flame retardant specification CA117 and should pass a fabric durability test of 250,000 double rubs (Wyzenbeek test). The backs of these church chairs are cleanly finished for an elegant appearance. This smooth, quality fit & finish allows your congregation to easily seat themselves in your church chairs without the worry of snagging clothing or pocketbooks on roughly-finished chair backs or awkward corners. Each sanctuary chair comes fully-assembled and ready for service – again something to consider in researching your church chair options with various church furniture stores. Finally, a quality church chair frame should carry a Lifetime Warranty on the frame welds.
