I bought Flash Furniture Hercules Series Chair which they say is for 880 Lb. Capacity and is a "Titanium Frame". This was for my 220 lb. mother - FAR less than the chair capacity. This is marketed on their website as well as amazon.com - where I bought it.
After 1.5 years, the chair frame completely collapsed as she was sitting down and she crashed on the floor. While she thankfully did not suffer sever issues, my special needs daughter was present and saw the fall resulting into her going into panic attacks and becoming highly troubled.
I went back and revisited their listing on amazon and there were at least another 10 exactly similar complaints.
There is ABSOLUTELY no way the frame is titanium. This is completely false. There is no way this can handle half the rating they listed. Please do something about this, this is very dangerous for people. I'm attaching a picture of my broken chair.
