Our manufacturing process

All our gaming stools are manufactured in our plant located on the outskirts of Johannesburg. Because we use modern processes and technology, we are able to constantly improve the quality of our products and service.

Why choose Karo Gaming Stools?

1. Value for Money

We understand that value for money is important to you. At Karo, we manufacture all our casino seating in South Africa and sell our products directly to you. We are not a wholesaler of another manufacturers products. By eliminating the middle-man, we ensure that you receive the most competitive price. What do our gaming stools cost?
Finally, should you have any product or service related questions about our products, you can contact us directly.

2. Experience

We have been manufacturing ergonomic seating and gaming stools since 1986. Karo has become a well-respected name in casino seating and we are associated with some of the biggest clubs and casinos around the world. Our gaming stools can be found in venues located in Europe, Asia, Russia, Africa, South America, New Zealand and Australia.  With so much experience and a global customer base, you have the confidence that our products will meet your expectations.

Our global customer base has a huge impact on our product development as we are able to gather feedback from clients in different markets. To better service our customers, in 2004 we opened a permanent office and distribution centre in Sydney, Australia.

3. Quality and a 7-Year warranty to give you peace of mind

To give you peace of mind, we have a 7-year warranty on all our casino chairs.
At Karo, we include your feedback in the design and manufacture our products. We then discuss new concepts with our local and international suppliers. Only once we have gathered all this data, do we refine our designs and build prototypes. To ensure that we maintain our quality standards, all processes conform to our internationally certified ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System.

4. Superior comfort for your patrons

“We believe that everyone has the right to sit on a comfortable chair. A comfortable seat allows the players to immerse themselves in the game and stay engaged for longer.”

We design our gaming stools with ergonomics in mind to ensure that they are comfortable, durable and stylish. By including market trends and customer feedback in our designs, we are able to design more comfortable products for your patrons.

5. Innovative designs to boost your corporate image

Karo was founded by two engineers, and to this day we retain our emphasis on product design and innovation. Our engineering focus helps us to develop new products and components to suit your gaming room.
We liaise and visit our local and international partners to ensure that we include their latest components and trends in our designs. We keep abreast of new research and advances in ergonomics, and include these concepts in all our product ranges.

6. Product customisation

We offer many options and finishes thereby allowing you to customise our products to suit your specific gaming environment. For example, our options include fabric, vinyl or leather upholstery to match your décor, customised embroidery, chrome or brass plating, customised PVC edge protection, and various powdercoating colours.

7. Improve patron safety and reduce your business risk

If a chair breaks while a patron is sitting on it, the consequences can be extremely serious. To ensure patron safety and to reduce the business risk to your venue, we use a unique weld-free design for our pedestal gaming stools. This eliminates the often disastrous failures associated with chairs that have welded joints.

8. Cost effective re-upholstery

Our casino seating uses ‘glue-free upholstery’. This reduces your cost of re-upholstering the chairs and prolongs the life of your investment.
If you glue the upholstery material to the underlying foam, the foam is usually destroyed during the re-upholstery process. This results in:
a) higher cost of re-upholstery
b) the comfort of the chair may be compromised if the correct replacement foam is not readily available.

9. Simple height conversion

When a venue changes the height of it’s machine bases, the gaming stools usually end up at the incorrect height. Unless you have chairs with gas height adjustment, you need to rectify the situation, either by buying new stools or undergoing a costly conversion process.
Our exclusive taper-lock design for pedestal stools allows our chairs to be easily converted from one height to another. Because our design only requires the replacement of a few components, this saves you both time and cost.

10. Smart products

To keep us at the forefront of the market, we use cutting-edge CAD design software. We include developments in moulded foamfabric cutting and ergonomics, when we design new components. Our goal is to create products that benefit you, our customer.
Over the years we have created many innovative products and components that have set new benchmarks in the gaming industry.

11. Sustainability

We know that sustainability is important to you. At Karo, we also take our social responsibility seriously and strive to reduce our impact on the environment. We actively develop processes and systems to reduce, recycle and reuse packaging, components and products.
