The Advantages of Aluminum Office Chair Bases

What are the advantages of aluminum chair bases?

Recently the cost of Aluminum raw material is sharply raising. Many importers are thinking to purchase the lowercost iron chrome or nylon office bases instead of Aluminum office chair bases.

However, there are really big differences between the quality of chair bases of different materials.

A nice office chair with an aluminum office base will have the following advantages:

  • Light
  • Strong
  • High class
  • Great looking

Why should we choose an aluminum chair base for our office chairs?

Aluminum has a density of 2.7 g/cm3. That makes aluminum the lightest metal – that’s why it is used for airplanes as well. It is both strong and non-fragile with a beautiful metallic look, making it a perfect material for office chair base production.

Here are some pictures of the Aluminum office chair base production line.

The Plastic office chair base (made out of nylon) has a density of 1.15 g/cm3, which it is light as well. However, compared to the Aluminum office chair base, its sturdiness and appearance is not so good as the Aluminum one.

Compared to the plastic base, the iron base is stronger and non-fragile. Besides, it has a metallic look. But it does have one major disadvantage: It’s much more heavier than Aluminum base. Steel has a density of 7.8 g/cm3. The base is about 20 pounds to the total weight of the chair.

The differences between these three, there are one post for this issue: The differences between nylon, aluminum & chrome Office Chair Base.

The highest class office chair definitely asks for an aluminum office chair base .

Aluminum is the material that airplanes are made out of because it’s very light, strong, non-fragile and looks great.

Thus, it is still the first choice for high end market customers even of a higher price.
