Folding Chair Testing
Gaynes Labs tested two critical performance aspects of our model C600 chair:
1. Compression load (pressure gradually applied on seat until failure)
2. Dynamic load (load �free fall� from 6� above the seat)
Four competitors� chairs were subjected to the same testing protocol.
The following is a brief explanation of what each page of the test results describes:
Page 1 � The overview describes the testing procedures in detail.
Page 2 � 300 lbs. 6� Drop Test Results
� PS Furniture�s Model C600 (chairs C1-5) passed all five tests
� Competitors� chairs (B#, D#, E#, and F#) failed two to five tests each
Page 3 � Compression Test Results
