Why “Made in the USA” Matters: Tips on Choosing the Best Sideline Chairs

Customized sideline chairs are a bit of an investment and if you’re shopping online, there are many to choose from. In this article, our chair experts will detail the specific factors you need to look for in order to ensure that you’ll be completely satisfied with your chairs for years to come. Lightweight and Easy to Store

First, sideline chairs should be lightweight. This will allow them to be carried out and set up quickly and easily for a variety of events. In addition to being light and easy to carry, they should be able to fold flat for storage. Once folded, it’s a snap to hang them on our Double Tier Storage Cart, where they can be wheeled away until you need them again.

Made in the USA
Another factor that will ensure you’re purchasing folding chairs that will last? Look for athletic seating products that are completely made in the USA. This is one of the best ways to ensure quality. Why does quality matter? A folding chair is just a folding chair, right? Wrong!When you invest in folding chairs for your guests, you need the chairs to be durable and safe, as well as comfortable. That’s why we’re proud to carry the amazing Model 3400 Chair and other products made by Clarin – a company that’s been manufacturing seating products right here in the USA since 1928. Why Clarin?

For decades, Clarin has perfected the art of comfort and strength with its signature designs. The Model 3400 is a perfect example of that. The all-steel frame is built to hold up to years of use and abuse. The frames come in a variety of colors and are powder-coated to resist wear, tear, and rust. They’re truly the workhorse of sideline chairs.
When it comes to comfort, Clarin chairs can’t be beat. Their 3000 series chairs come with a variety of high-quality seat cushions and backs to keep your players and guests comfortable. For your VIPs, upgrade to a Model 3400C Classic Contour Chair with an amazing contour molded foam seat.

Clarin chairs won’t just look great in your gymnasium or arena; they’re an investment that will last. Other chair manufacturers import their products from Taiwan or China. Don’t be fooled into purchasing seating that will rust out or fall apart in a few years. For athletic seating, made in the USA is the way to go.

Here’s a bit of Clarin trivia: did you know that Clarin puts date stamps on all of their folding chairs? It’s quite interesting to be able to know how long ago your chair was made. Believe it or not, some schools are still using Clarin chairs that were made in the 60’s and 70’s!

Customize Your Chairs
Now that you understand the difference between American-made Clarin products and all the rest, it’s time to choose the best seating solution for your organization and getting them customized. The Model 3400 Chair, for example, comes in a variety of frame and vinyl colors. Once you’ve picked those, the team at Athletic Seating can work with you to screen print your team or organization’s logo on the chair cushion or seat back in an eye-catching, vibrant design!
