Only the finest kiln dried hard woods go into the manufacture of Church Furnishings pews. Appalachian red oak is the traditional wood for stained pews and maple is used for white. All of the ends, center supports, top rails and all other stained parts are made of solid wood. No particle board or laminates are used in the finished wood parts. Ends are constructed to show the face edge of the lumber, revealing all the beautiful wood grains. Your choice of stains, followed by a sealer coat, then hand sanding, and finally the laquor top coats ensures the beauty of the wood. A full three inch high density foam on the seat and a one inch polyfoam on the back gives your congregation the support they need. Only stain resistant fabrics with either Teflon® or Scotchguard™ coatings will meet the high standards of Church Furnishings. All fabrics have an additional heavy pew backing to ensure that they will withstand the heavy use of church pews. Fabrics are available in dozens of patterns and hundreds of colors enabling you to match your pews with any decor. A twenty-five year warranty guarantees you that your pews have been built to the highest standards. Our reputation has been built upon one satisfied customer at a time.
While others may use some form of particle board (glue and sawdust) or either a cheap wood such as popular (a wood of soft density with many glue joints to separate with the up and down movement of the seats), the seat and back of our upholstered pews are made of 3/4 inch plywood with the seat reinforced at the front and back edges to give you the stability and strength you need. For those who want a wood look on the back of the back of an upholstered pew, a 1/4 inch oak plywood panel on the back of the back is available at a very modest cost. Or you may choose to have your pews made with an upholstered seat and a solid wood oak back. Whichever look you desire, Church Furnishings will work with you to meet your special desires.
