Apart from the occasional break office workers spend the majority of their working day sitting at their workstation or desk. For this reason it is important for it to be fit for daily activity and enable  freedom of movement whilst giving good lumbar support.  Whilst the colour and style may be a priority for the  office  designers, follow these tips for comfortable seating, leading to productive work time.

Consider the upholstery padding in relation to the anticipated usage and the person using the chair.  The furniture specialists at London & Counties Office Supplies can advise on the suitable ranges to accommodate constant, heavier usage, when a chair with a stronger, reinforced build is required.

The style of the chair will be driven by the type of activity.  Operators or Task chairs are suitable for those who work at a cpmputer for the majority of the working day typing or inputting data.  Managers or Executive chairs are designed for use by those who make a variety of moves, perhaps moving from a desk reading a report to using a laptop.

The seat needs to support your thighs with a small gap between the edge of the seat and the backs of your knees to ensure good circulation of the blood to the legs.

Adjustment Mechanism 
Keep it simple, look for easy to reach levers to adjust height and  seat tilt position.  Remember to use the adjustment mechanism for changes when performing various tasks. This will avoid unnecessary strain on the spine and muscles.  The basic mechanism will allow the back rest to move forward and back, but better still are those that also allows the seat to tilt and is lockable to deliver the right pelvic tilt.

Be confident that any chair supplied by London & Counties Office Supplies will have a manufacturer's warranty and conform to the latest British Standards so call in the experts!  Phone us now on 01494 791221.
