Adams’ Big Easy™ Stacking Resin Rocking Chair Recognized for Product Innovation, Design and Quality
PORTERSVILLE, PENNSYLVANIA, May 12, 2015 – Adams Manufacturing, a privately-owned western Pennsylvania-based “Made in USA” supplier of exceptional-quality resin furniture and accessories, announced today that its patent-pending Big Easy™ Stacking Resin Rocking Chair has won the prestigious 2015 National Hardware Show American Manufacturing Award for Best New Product. With more than 2,700 exhibitors from around the globe representing over 250,000 products, The National Hardware Show® is one of the largest home improvement exhibitions in the world and was held May 5-7, 2015, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Selected by a panel of industry judges, Adams’ Big Easy™ Stacking Resin Rocking Chair was chosen over hundreds of other manufacturers’ new and innovative products—collectively representing millions of dollars in research and development budgets.
An industry first due to its innovative stackable resin design, Adams’ Big Easy ™ Rocking Chair represents a significant design and engineering milestone. Using Finite Element Analysis (FEA), a rigorous computer-based design and data modeling methodology that analyzes the behavior of engineering structures, Adams was able to simulate the various structural strains, stresses and loads that are inherent in any stackable rocking chair design. This resulted in optimal product geometries, proportions and features that were incorporated into the final product.
ASTM-rated to hold 350lbs., Adams’ Big Easy™ Rocking Chair recalls the carefree days of summer, blending the best qualities of resin into an iconic favorite. From the porch to the deck, Adams’ rocking chair is designed for long-lasting comfort. The curved seat and comforting back support delivers a relaxation that rivals the classic wooden rockers of yesteryear, incorporating a smooth and peaceful rocking action. More affordable and easier to maintain than wood, Adams’ Big Easy™ Rocking Chair is built from high-quality resin for all-weather performance. Found on porches throughout North America and deeply engrained in the American psyche, rocking chairs continue to be an extremely popular form of casual seating. Many of today’s current rocker designs are either too expensive, too bulky, require assembly, or they can’t stack. Technological design advances have allowed Adams to create a stackable resin rocking chair that delivers the look, strength and functionality of more expensive traditional wooden and polyethylene rockers, but at a fraction of the cost.
Proven to be a significant value with retails under $49.99, Adams’ Big Easy Stacking Rocking Chair can be found in prominent retailers throughout North America.
