Thread: Tilite painted titanium chairs????

  1. #1

    Tilite painted titanium chairs????

    So I'm coming to realize that the specs that I got at Craig on my ZRA aren't quite right... frame too long, seat to footrest isn't short enough, footrest sits too close to the floor, front end needs to be 90 degrees and there's not enough adjustability to get my stf height where I need it.

    That being said, I'm looking at ordering a ZR and on Sportaid's site there's an option to pick your color/finish.

    Is it n option to have ti chairs painted?

    I want an orange ZR with all black soooooooo bad........

    I was interested in painted titanium as well when I saw it as an option on the TiLite site. I haven't see it myself, but am told by a DME that the finish isn't powder coated (electrostaticlly applied and heat cured ) like on other chairs, but is just added on somehow, and tends to wear off. Does any one else have better info about this?

    p.s. Don't know why I'm getting double posts! Can someone tell me how I can delete them myself? Thanks!

    Tilite have updated the order forms last January 1st.

    It's possible get a painted frame in ZR and ZRA models (I think that in other titaniun model frames too).

    On Sportaid online order form there is this option.

    good question, I've never seen a Tilite with the painted finish.
    there are 3 kinds: High gloss, Matte and Transparent (extra charge for this one).

    17x17
    front stf - 19.5
    rear - 15
    85 degree front
    4 degrees of camber

    17x17 stimulite xs
    tilite sling back
    24" spinergy lx
    3" firm roll

    I'd have to look up the other measurements like seat to footrest and probably a few others, but those are the main ones.
    I was thinking...

    17w x 16d
    frt stf -18.5-19
    rear stf - 14-14.5
    90 degree front
    4 degrees of camber

    17wx16d stimulite
    tilite tension adjustable back
    24" spinergy lx
    3" firm roll casters


    I can't drop the front end down any lower because of the seat to footrest height... the footrest is up as high as it'll go and I'll start hitting stuff if it goes much lower.

    considering your chair measurements, you're tall.
