Manufacturing Karo Gaming Stools

All our gaming stools are manufactured in our factory and head office located on the outskirts of Johannesburg. Watch our short video that gives an overview of our manufacturing processes.

Why choose Karo Gaming Stools?

1. Value for Money

We know that value for money is important to you. As a result, we manufacture our gaming machine stools in South Africa and sell our products directly to you. We are not a reseller of someone else’s products. Because we eliminate the middle-man, we ensure that you receive the most competitive price. Furthermore, should you have any product or service related questions, you liaise directly with us.

2. Experience

We have been manufacturing office chairs and gaming stools since 1986. 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, Russia, 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 cash-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 have a 7-year warranty on all our gaming stools. We constantly include your feedback in the design and manufacture our products. 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 and gaming stools with ergonomics in mind. This ensures that they are comfortable, durable and stylish.

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.

We communicate with 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. 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.

8. Cost effective re-upholstery of Gaming Stools

Our stools use ‘glue-free upholstery’. This reduces your 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:

  • higher cost to re-upholster the stools
  • because so few gaming stools are manufactured in countries like Australia, the comfort of the chair may be compromised if the correct replacement foam is not readily available.

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 saves you both time and cost.

10. Smart Gaming Stools

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 our customers.

11. Sustainability

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

12. Freight costs and delivery lead times for Karo gaming stools sold in Australia
