Unlike many furniture retailers in Australia, we do not import our gaming stools from 3rd party manufacturers and on-sell them as “Karo” products.
We design and manufacture our chairs and have been doing so since 1986.
We have been manufacturing chairs since 1986, and Karo has become a respected global name in casino seating. As a result, our gaming stools can be found in venues located in Europe, Asia, Africa, South America, New Zealand and Australia.
To better service our customers, in 2004 we opened a permanent office and distribution centre in Sydney, Australia and we have now become a ‘known brand’ within the Australian market. Every year we exhibit our gaming stools at the AHG and AGE Expos held in Brisbane and Sydney respectively. Here we not only showcase our latest innovations, but also catch-up with many of our existing clients.
3. Quality and a 7-Year warranty to give you peace of mind
To give you peace of mind, we include a 7-year warranty on all our gaming stools. We constantly incorporate your feedback in the design and manufacture our products, and we always 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 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.”
In a recent article by William Sokolic from Casino Style Magazine, he argues that a more comfortable stool can increase the length of time a patron spends in your venue. This in turn, may increase your profitability. We design our stools with gaming room ergonomics in mind. This ensures that they are comfortable, durable and stylish. During the product development process, we draw on our vast experience in manufacturing ergonomic office chairs, and by understanding what actually happens to your body when you sit.

5. Innovative designs to boost your corporate image
Karo was founded by two engineers and as a result we constantly focus on product design and innovation. This helps us to develop new products and components to suit your gaming room. For example, in 2013 we developed our Ezi-Glide Disc Base that has become an industry standard for casino seating in Australia and elsewhere.
Although some of our technical and design innovations have revolutionised gaming stools, we don’t rest on our laurels. Instead, we continually communicate with our local and international suppliers and customers to ensure that we include the 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. Customise your Gaming Stools
We offer many options and finishes so you can customise our products to suit your gaming environment. For example, our options include:
7. Improve patron safety and reduce your business risk
A chair that breaks while a patron is sitting on it can result in serious injuries and potential litigation. To improve patron safety and 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 and where these joints fail due to embrittlement.
8. Cost effective re-upholstery of Gaming Stools
Our stools use ‘glue-free upholstery’. Not only is this better for the environment, but it also reduces the cost of re-upholstering the seats 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:
Our Revive Program is a popular alternative to re-upholstering your existing gaming stools.
9. Simple height conversion
If you change the height of your machine bases, the gaming stools usually end up at the incorrect height. Unless you have chairs with gas height adjustment, you either need to buy new stools, or convert the existing ones, which can be expensive. Stools that are at the wrong height will be uncomfortable for your patrons.
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 reduces our impact on the environment while also saving you both time and cost.
10. Smart Gaming Stools
Our goal is simple:
We want to create gaming stools that benefit our customers.

We actively develop processes and systems to reduce, recycle and reuse packaging, components and products.

Sustainable processes and products results in chairs that have a longer life and lower our impact on the environment.
