What’s So Great About Polypropylene Chairs?

Polypropylene chairs have come on in leaps and bounds since the old days when they were considered cheap and tacky. In fact today’s polypropyle chairs are so stylish and chic that they’re popping up all over the place. So in case you’re wondering what all the fuss is about and whether you should consider investing in some for your cafe or restaurant, let’s take a closer look at the many benefits that plastic chairs offer.


Polypropylene chairs are incredibly versatile and come in so many styles and colours that you really are stuck for choice. From designer to quirky and classic to traditional, there’s a style of plastic chair to suit just about every venue. Because polypropylene chairs are manufactured using a method known as inection moulding, they can be as simple or intricate in design as necessary. The process simply involves making a mould and then filling (or injecting) it with molten plastic. Once this has cooled and set it can be removed from the mould and hey presto, you have a sturdy, seamless chair. With a plethora of bold and pastel shades to choose from, there really is a plastic chair to suit every décor.

Strong and durable

Cafe chairs need to be strong and durable given the amount of usage that they’re likely to incur. Polypropylene is weather resistant and can withstand the harsh Australian climate with ease. In addition, most plastic chairs are fade resistant and won’t crack or split in the hottest of weather.

Easy to maintain

Another benefit of polyprop chairs is that they are light in weight and easy to move around from one place to another, All that’s required to keep them clean and free from dust is a quick wipe over with a damp cloth. Beause plastic chairs are stackable, they also take up less room to store which is handy if storage space is limited.


When compared to wood or metal chairs, plastic chairs are relatively inexpensive which means they’re a great choice if you’re on a tight budget. Because of their funky designs and vibrant colours they offer a quick and cheap solution to brightening up a dull patio.

Kid friendly

Finally, since most plastic chairs are injection moulded without seams and sharp corners, they’re very user friendly which means they’re ideal for use in spaces where there are children about.
