Product Description

The National Public Seating 5200 Series all steel premium folding chair with right tablet arm has a gray, 18 gauge, 7/8″ tubular steel “Y-frame” structure, gray steel seat and backrest, gray left side tablet arm writing surface, double-riveted front and rear leg cross braces, double hinges on each side, and it folds for efficient storage when not in use. This chair meets the American National Standards Institute/Business & Institutional Furniture Manufacturers Association (ANSI/BIFMA) standard for drop weight support of 300 lb., and it supports 480 lb. of static weight. The tablet arm is made of 5/8″ thick laminated medium density fiberboard (MDF) and supported by two steel brackets for a smooth and stable writing surface, and it folds with the chair. The chair has double-riveted front and rear leg cross braces for stability. The seat has a rounded, “waterfall” front edge to help reduce pressure on the back of the knees. The steel frame is powder coated for corrosion resistance. Replaceable polypropylene glides help protect floor surfaces. Plastic plugs at the top of the back legs have a slot shaped to hold the frame and add stability. These plugs and the floor glides match the frame color.

The chair is Materials Analytical Services (MAS) certified as low volatile organic compound (VOC) emitting furniture according to the criteria defined by U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) 2009 for Schools, LEED 2009 for Commercial Interiors, ANSI/BIFMA X7.1-2011, ANSI/BIFMA e3-2011e Furniture Sustainability Standard – Section 7.6.1, and the MAS Certified Green program.
