Treating yourself to a new chair or kitting out the entire office? We can help here at Workplace Products. Our huge selection of chairs means you'll always find the perfect seating for your office.
Office Chair Requirements
Seat height needs to be adjustable for your height. Your feet must touch the floor without putting too much pressure on your thighs. If your feet can’t touch the floor adjust your chair until you can.
Seat depth should be adjustable if possible. You should be sat at the back of the chair without the back of the knees touching the front of your chair. Comfort needs to be top priority if you’re sitting for a long period.
Lumbar support is crucial for sitting in your new chair for long periods of time. Chairs should follow the natural S shape of the spine. Neck supports can also help keep your spine aligned.
Tilting back rests allow different postures to be adopted. 95-105-degree angle allows your chest and abdomen to be open to help oxygen flow through the body.
Swivel chairs allow movement around your working area; allowing you to move without twisting your back.
