GIANT COMMERCIAL CHESS

The Difference Between Residential and Commercial Giant Chess Sets

The difference between giant chess sets used by our residential and commercial customers boils down to two major factors; the sets durability and the way the customers use the chess set.

Most of our residential customers place the chess set in one location and leave it out permanently. The set could be placed on a permanent board or a board purchased from us. Commercial customers tend to move their giant chess sets frequently. Resorts may place the chess set by the pool during the day, but move it to a high-end lounge in the evening. Shopping malls may place the set in a public area during operating hours, but need to break the set and board down after closing.

Durability is a must for commercial sets. The users handle giant chess sets in public locations hard. Kids can be very hard giant chess pieces. They drop and even through the giant pieces. Our giant plastic chess sets can be dropped from the second story of a building with no damage, so they stand up very well in commercial use.

Many of our residential customers are also looking for durability, but for some, the beauty of the giant chess set is equally important. Until recently, you had to choose between a beautiful chess set and a durable set. Watch for a major announcement early in 2019 on our new beautiful giant plastic chess sets.

Watch for new articles discussing why different businesses, schools and municipalities choose chess set that match the specific needs of their businesses.
