Many people have sat in a rickety chair at the coin laundry. These chairs have been sat on by many people over the years, and that is not a bad factor. It’s just that the owners and operators of the coin laundry need to check the quality and safety of the chairs from time to time, or even ever, to determine if they are still safe for someone to sit on.
The nature of the coin laundry is that you take in your clothing, pay for a washing machine and dryer and then leave with your clean clothing. It seems like a simple enough process, except when you fall down on a chair that is dangerous and unsafe. Most people sit on a chair at the laundry, it is nearly a tradition. No one stands for an hour or two to complete the cycles of his or her laundry at a coin laundry facility. Therefore, the chairs need to be in good working order at all times.
Plastic Chairs in a Coin Laundry Are Often Unsafe
A plastic stacking chair is also called a polyprop or polypropylene chair. They are stackable chairs usually seen in bib public spaces such as at schools, airports or hospitals. These chairs can be unsafe if they have defects, are not manufactured correctly or have been overused over time and are not repaired, switched out or maintained. The coin laundry owner and operator are fully responsible to check the safety of the chairs, machines and equipment at the premises on a daily basis. This is the only way to keep customers safe at the coin laundry.
Stackable Chairs in a Coin Laundry Can Injure You When They Collapse
A stackable chair is meant to support your body in the chair. It is supposed to provide:
- Lumbar support
- Backrest that reclines
- Adjustable seat pan
- Support to back
- User adjustment and tilt
- Clearance on arm rests
- Elbow rest
- Wide seat pan to accommodate the average sized person
- Smooth finish to chair, not rough finish
- Backrest should be over 17 inches tall for average person

Traumatic Brain Injuries Can Occur Falling Backwards Off of a Chair at the Coin Laundry
You can fall backwards quite fast on a plastic chair at a coin laundry. This backwards fall will come completely by surprise, and you can hit your head on a counter, floor or machine on the way down, which will make the injury worse. Your experience of falling backwards off of a chair will also possibly hurt or even fracture your back, your legs and your arms. Any time that you fall off of a chair unexpectedly, you don’t give your body a chance to save you by bracing for the fall in a safe way. Instead, you will be hurled to the ground, and may be cut on debris on the floor as well.
Falling from a chair in a coin laundry can also leave your wounds open to dirt, debris, lint and trash if it has accumulated on the floor of the coin laundry. You can expect that you may have additional issues with infection by having an exposed cut or wound that accompanies your fall at the coin laundry. There are other items that can hurt you if you fall into them at the coin laundry, including:
- Coin machines
- Laundry carts
- Water heater systems
- Detergent vending machines
- Lint baskets
