18 gauge, not really, but a good chair by current standards, good value.

This review in no way reflects wayfairsupply, but the entire folding chair industry move to China and acceptable dump duties paid by the corporations which import the chairs. Let's start with the definition of 18 gauge tubing. By definition it would mean a wall thickness of 1.2mm. I knew this wasn't the case, so I removed the rubber feet and my first reading was 1.13mm. That is over the paint, and without a clean cut and smooth surface. There are tolerances for tubing, meaning +/- values allowed. The tubing manufacturers always make the tubing as close to the low end to increase their profits. Depending on what standard, be it ISO, ATSM, etc, there is a different value. In the USA, the manufacturer is going to need to use tube which meets certain standards. Leave the USA, and you can find standards with definitions as loose as "as agreed upon deviation". I have not proven it falls outside ISO standards, which are more generous than I would have imagined. The 1.13 still falls inside the allowable tolerances but if I were to make a significant effort to smooth the surface it would fail. Enough bashing, the paint is very resistant to chemical solvents in comparison with the finish on chairs from the Meco corporation. So far I am unable to remove it without abrasive using Kleen-Strip solvent. The chair is as sturdy as anything currently available. You would need an American made chair to find anything stronger, and you aren't going to find a new American made chair. It's a great price, but I would rather have a better chair over a low price point. Like I said at the beginning, wayfair supply did not start this. The manufacturers of the chairs order chairs made to certain standards, then give out the specifications of the chairs they had built (in China) to companies which are going to sell the chairs. Every website selling these chairs lists the specifications, and everyone believes them simply because they read it and it must be true. I won't go into providing an explanation of dump duties. If you are so inclined, searching for "dump duties folding chairs" will explain what they are and if you are so inclined you can follow the money trail to see who benefits. One last thing, from my experience the weak point on folding metal chairs is the rivet where the seat meets the front legs. I have seen failure of a rear cross bar but unusual forces were being applied, not as in use for normal seating.
Great bargain and fast delivery

These are great chairs for short term use and the delivery was super fast. I bought them in black and they seem to be fairly high quality. I haven't used them yet, so I don't know how they are going to hold up to weight, being banged around, and general wear and tear, so I didn't feel I could give them 5 stars yet. But, brand new, out of the box....they seem to be a great purchase.
