Having the right chair provides comfort, improves safety, and helps to assure it's longevity.

Steel tubing is added to provide more support. Denier polyester is often used for it's durability as well. Some provide extra wide seating, for instance 21-23" versus the standard 17-18". In addition, the backs of these chairs may be taller as well.
