Folding Tables for Government Facilities
Government facilities need durable tables that can be easily moved, set up, and stored to help with quick room turnover and ensure safety for employees.
MityLite manufactures three types of folding tables that are popular for government use. Reveal Duo Tables, Reveal Fixed Tables, and Tableaux ABS are ideal for all types of government offices, meeting areas, town halls, courthouses, recreation centers, and other buildings. Providing an excellent return on investment, these tables are durably built and made to maintain a professional appearance for years.
The Reveal Duo and Fixed folding tables are professional-looking linenless tables that feature a smooth laminate tabletop. These high-end tables also have the option of integrated powder, which is extremely useful for meetings and presentations.
The ABS tables are lighter than the Reveal tables and less expensive, although they don’t feature the linenless tabletop. When you need a durable table that’s also lightweight, nothing on the market beats MityLite ABS Folding tables.

Highly durable, all these folding tables can be easily stacked and carted into storage when not in use. They are available in multiple shapes and sizes. They are easy to set up, take down, and store, saving you money on maintenance, labor, and replacement costs.
MityLite carts make it easy to transport and store folding tables. The Reveal Edge Cart is easy to load and fits through standard doorways. For larger facilities, the cart can be expanded to hold up to 10 Reveal tables. For rectangular ABS Tables, check out our RT Cart – Double Capacity, which holds 20 ABS tables.
Stacking Chairs for Government Facilities
Stacking chairs are an excellent choice for flexible seating areas. MityLite manufactures a variety of stackable chairs for government buildings. Select from upholstered banquet chairs, heavy-duty molded plastic stacking chairs, or innovative chairs with stretch fabric seats.
Bis et Élite Banquet Chairs are popular for government use in environments where stackable and upholstered chairs are desired. These are great all-around conference and dining room chairs that perform well in government offices, waiting areas, courthouses, meeting rooms, dining areas, and multipurpose areas. Although stackable and easy to tuck away, these upholstered chairs give a permanent feel to a room setup that casual folding chairs cannot.
These meeting chairs feature comfortable, upholstered foam cushion seats and backrests and a sturdy metal frame. Professional and polished in appearance, they are durably built for heavy use and stack 8 to 10 chairs high.
The 5-Wheel Comfort Chair Cart offers an efficient way to transport and store MityLite banquet and meeting seating like the Elite and Encore chairs.
Another great stacking chair for government facilities is the Chaise empilable MeshOne. Although more casual in appearance than upholstered banquet chairs, the MeshOne is great for indoor environments that don’t require a degree of formality, such as waiting areas, break rooms, meeting rooms, and training rooms. These stackable chairs feature a comfortable elastomeric mesh fabric seat that conforms to the shape of the user. MeshOne Chairs stack 8–10 chairs high and are available with or without arms.

Folding Chairs for Government Facilities
When storage space is at a premium, folding chairs are the best choice for seating large groups in flexible spaces. MityLite folding chairs are ideal for large public meetings, city events and ceremonies, visitor centers, and in many other circumstances where cost-effective seating is needed.
Most people think of folding chairs as being uncomfortable, but MityLite has created several comfortable folding chairs that defy that expectation.
The MeshOne® has been called the most comfortable folding chair on the market. It features an elasticized mesh fabric seat and back, which conforms to the shape of the user and minimizes pressure points. It also promotes airflow, which helps minimize overheating and stuffiness during long meetings.
The FlexOne® CS folding chair is made with a flexible plastic seat and back. Although it doesn’t feel as cushy as the MeshOne, it is quite comfortable for a folding chair. The geometric-shaped plastic flexes with the weight of each person, adding some flexibility to the surface and increasing comfort and airflow.
The SwiftSet folding chair is made with a molded plastic seat and back. It is the most economical folding chair from MityLite and is designed for dense stacking. While it lacks the flexible feel of the other folding chairs, the plastic material is more comfortable than a standard metal folding chair.
