Where should you start when choosing an office chair? Well, go from the ground, up. Seat height is arguably the most important factor to consider when purchasing new office furniture. Most office tasks can be accomplished from a chair seat that ranges from 16 to 21 inches from the floor. Adjustable chairs are important. Remember that not all nice looking chairs are good for every elegant office desk. Chairs that adjust are more comfortable and are also easier to pair with different office decors.
Schools, churches and other organizations often find that purchasing the chairs that are needed for these special occasions is a more economical choice than renting when needed. If you purchase the items, remember that purchase of the correct storage and moving cart makes it much easier to set up and store the chairs with less damage. Stacking chairs are another popular seating option. However, stacking chairs take more room and are more difficult to transport. If the chairs are always used in the same room and storage is not a problem, they may be a better option. Either type of these portable chairs works well to furnish a multipurpose room. That room is equally at home as an auditorium or a class room. It can serve as an area for a dance or a lecture hall. Storing the chairs makes the room available for standing room only events.
There are several types of chair dollys. They hold different amounts of differently. Some dollies hold the chairs in stacked rows while others allow you to hang the chair. If you were to purchase a large dolly built to hold 50 of the economy chairs, you may spend about $300.00. To fill the dolly with chairs would cost about one thousand dollars. As an alternative, you can expect to find used chairs for half the cost if you have time to check your local classifieds.
A big disadvantage that is not necessarily the chairs fault, is that people get fooled into purchasing chairs that are advertised as cheap leather office chairs. They believe they are getting an unbelievable bargain price when in actuality really cheap chairs with leather upholstery will always be a compromise, frequently they are made from off cuts and scraps of very low quality leather that have been pieced together to cover the chair. This leather can be thin and brittle, meaning the chair will not last long and will begin to tear as time goes by.
When sitting in an office chair the first area of the chair to focus on is the part you sit on all day, the seat. With your back against the backrest, the seat should support most of the length of your thighs without applying pressure to the back of your knees. Waterfall seats (which most chairs now come with) are ideal for allowing you to sit comfortably and properly. Your seat height should be set so that your thighs are approximately parallel to the ground when your heels are firmly planted on the ground. If it is not possible to have your feet flat on the ground because your work station is too high and not adjustable, a footrest is a good addition to keep your feet flat and body in proper posture. Movement throughout the day is encouraged, so do not feel as if you always need your feet to be planted on the ground. There is generally a lever on the right side if not the left that when pulled up allows you to move either up if your taller or down if you are of shorter stature. A tip for adjustment is to start with your seat at its highest and lower it gradually until it is at a comfortable height. as you cannot usually raise your seat while you are sitting in it.
When purchasing your last office chair you probably were given the option of which type of casters(wheels) you wanted to have included on your chair. Generally there are not too many wheel option, usually the most common are standard carpet casters or an option to upgrade to soft casters that are more gentle on hardwood floors. Usually carpet, no matter which casters your chair comes with, provides too much resistance for office chairs rollers to work well. On carpet, often it is difficult to roll from one place to another because of the amount of pressure being put on the wheels from a person sitting on the chair, in addition to an already resistant surface. Rolling a chair over carpet will also wear down carpet fibers over time; you may find the spots on your carpet where your chair typically rolls over becoming more bare and noticeably different. Chairs also sometimes tend to leave indentations in carpet if used in the same spot that are near impossible to get rid of.
