What makes Chart Area Seating different?

We like to do things a little differently at Chart Area Seating as our priorities and philosophy are reflected in the way we work, the service levels we offer and the product portfolio we are excited to present.

The products that we offer

At Chart Area Seating we like to avoid 'cheap' stacking and linking chairs. The reason? Well, to put it simply the savings have to come from somewhere. Cheap stacking and linking chairs often mean product that is manufactured and produced with a disregard for the environmental and ecological impact of the production process. Disposal of waste materials handled irresponsibly may reduce monetary costs but can take a savage toll on the environment and our manufacturer partners share our ethos that we have a responsibility to minimise the environmental impact of what we do.

We have encountered cheap stacking and linking chairs offered by competitors which do not meet UK regulations for fire safety or use poor quality materials and construction methods which do not offer longevity of use. We feel that these cheap chairs can represent a false economy for our clients but also damage our planet as they have absorbed the same or greater amount of raw materials and energy in both the production and transportation phases as better quality sacking and linking chairs but are unlikely to last for as long.

Furthermore we believe that through innovation and creativity brilliant products can be realised which offer excellent value for money. A well-designed seating product not only offers comfort and quality but also can offer a space-efficient foot-print which minimises the space required during transportation improving efficiencies during this stage of the supply process.

Does that mean that all the seating systems and chairs we offer are expensive? Nope, we know that different seating requirements and projects have differing priorities and it is important that we listen and offer appropriate solutions to our clients. It's just that if we propose a cost-effective seating product you can be sure that it is the best quality cost-effective chair we have been able to find and is produced in ways that recognise the critical need to minimise the environmental impact of production and supply of seating.

The way that we work

At the core of our approach to client service is the aim of acting with integrity and courtesy throughout our relationship with you, our client. We call it the CAS VIP service and you can read more about it here.
