This is the hospitality version. It has the same construction quality as the more expensive b-grade version, but in less expensive teak. Due to the increasing costs of Fedex, it has become impossible to sell this $59 chair x2 and ship it without a loss. If we combine 4 chairs in a box, it then generates a new $24 overweight fee. The point is the box can’t ship reasonably enough to the customer. We can still sell this chair in larger quantities by shipping the order freight versus ground. The freight business is not an oligopoly and shipping rates are still competitive.
If you would like to order less than 12 chairs, then buy the b-grade version.You may still order less than 12 of the c-grade versions if you are combining this chair with a larger freight order. This will require us to modify your order and add the chairs. We are no longer shipping c-grade chairs in 2-10 quantities in single orders. You can buy their firewood on Amazon.
This Shelia Premium chair adds (4) advantages to its standard version counterpart- 1) when folded, the chair can sit on its feet in an upright position 2) the addition of a longer back piece which transfers weight to the frame 3) additional horizontal support members 4) the longer legs allow the person to sit forward distributing the weight in the front half – read Amazon’s reviews on the cheap versions.
Most folding chairs on the market are the standard version.
The four advantages include helping to store and pack the folding chair when not in use. The ability for the chair to fold upright and not have the seat flop forward due to short legs is an advantage in packing and storage. In addition, the design and function of the back seat piece serves a pivotal role in allowing more weight in the seat. It also transfers and distributes seat weight to the frame versus having the back piece absorb the full stress on a small bar. And finally, the basic use of the chair and not having it fly backwards when not fully seated.
