A Buyers Guide to Office Chair Types
You’d think choosing an office chair would be an easy thing to do. All you need is a comfy seat, a bit of back support and a base to hold the whole thing up and you’re good to go right? Well, it turns out there’s a little bit more to it than that. There is a wide range of office chairs available and not all of them are suitable for every office setting.
As one of the UKs leading suppliers of office chairs, we know a thing or two about getting the right one for your particular circumstances. In this article, we look at some of the differences, so you can make the right choice for you.
These are some of the most popular types of office chair:
Ergonomic Office Chairs
While more expensive than other office chairs, the benefits of an ergonomic office chair far outweighs the cost. They are built with the user’s individual needs in mind and incorporate a variety of adjustable supports so you can get set it up to meet your unique requirements. The Chiro Medium Back Posture Operator Chair, for instance, includes lumbar, backs, arm, head and seat support, each of which can be adjusted for optimal comfort.
Leather Office Chairs
If you want to add a sense of style and luxury to your workplace, then a leather office chair is the way to go. Whether you favour the tradition board room look of a Chesterfield Traditional Leather Faced Executive Office Chair, or a more contemporary Cloud High Back Leather Faced Manager Chair, a quality leather chair helps you really make a statement.
Mesh Office Chairs
A mesh office chair offers several benefits to any work environment. Their breathable materials helps to keep you cool in a hot office and they tend have a lightweight design, whilst still being robust enough for day-to-day use. Models like the Relay Airmesh Task Operator Chair and the Mercury 2 Medium Back Mesh Task Operator Chair combine these qualities with other winning features, such as adjustable height and added back support.
Operator chairs (also known as task chairs) are the simplest of the types of office chair we have in stock. Intended to be used in short bursts of a couple of hours or so (usually to complete a specific task), they tend to be cheaper than other models, but not designed for extended use. Models run from the basic Vantage 100 High Back Operator Chair to the Luna Medium Back Mesh Task Operator Chair, which incorporates the added support of a mesh back.
Heavy Duty Office Chairs
If you are a larger person, then you need a chair that will offer you the support you need to do your job in comfort. Heavy duty office chairs like the Cloud High Back Leather Faced Manager Chair are built to a robust design to accommodate up to 110kg.
High Back Office Chairs
For the taller office worker, a high back office chair is essential. Other models simply don’t offer the support needed by taller users. Models like the Aura Contemporary High Back Bonded Leather Executive Office Chair, on the other hand, help you maintain good posture throughout the working day, offering you the right support when you need it. High-backed office chairs are also available in faux leather and mesh models, such as the Metropolis High Back Faux Leather Office Chair and the Polaris High Back Mesh Executive Office Chair.
