Seating is a really important purchase for your office, ensuring the comfort and fitness of staff! With 70% of office workers suffering from back problems at some point in their working lives, it is important to have an office chair that suits more than just your basic needs. "An average operator chair will travel more than 7 miles in a year! With staff sitting in them 7-8 hours a day 5 days a week"
Things to consider
Does the user suffer with back or other pains? There are many different reasons that the user may suffer with pains but a common item added to chairs now is a Lumbar support. If they have any underlying conditions they may need an assessment to ensure they are getting the correct chair.
How long does the user sit in the chair? The average chair is designed for 8hrs usage, do they need a 24hr chair.
Is the user over 115Kg (18 Stone)? The standard weight a chair supports is around 115KG 18 stone if the user is above this weight consider adding a metal base or finding a chair tested to a higher weight tolerance. Chairs can break if the user if over the weight tolerance and we will never recommend putting staff at risk!
Where is the chair being used? Is a special fabric needed - waiting rooms in healthcare facilities sometimes use antimicrobial fabric or wipe clean vinyl to prevent the spread of infection! We have ranges of seating that can be made in these fabrics.

METAL BASE They don’t only just look good! Metal bases are recommended for users over 115kg (18 Stone)
