Spend your time at the beach in comfort while relaxing in a plus size beach chair. Designed for people of size, these chairs are cut wider and are constructed to safely hold heavier weight capacities then average sized beach chairs.
The dimensions and weight capacities of beach chairs designed for plus sizes vary based on the manufacturer and specific chair style. However, every plus size chair style holds more weight, is wider and often taller than average size beach chairs. The following are common dimensions of an average beach chair:
- Seat width (the distance between the arm rests) - 18 to 25 inches
- Seat length (depth from the front of the seat to the back) - 14.5 to 23 inches
- Height (seat back) - 24 to 40 inches
- Seat height from the ground of a regular height beach chair - 13 to 15.5 inches
- Seat height from the ground of a low beach chair (sand chair) - 7 to 8 inches
- Usable weight capacity - 250 to 270 pounds
