Chair mats are often purchased to place underneath your office chair to avoid problems that arise from rolling over a surface often and the damage that accumulates over time. Chair mats also allow you to be able to roll quickly and effectively from one place to the next without the typical resistance carpet brings. Mats can also help to protect uncarpeted floors, such as wood or linoleum, from wear and tear. There are also a variety of design options available that are sure to enhance the appearance of any office. When purchasing a chair mat, most tend to gravitate towards the cheap plastic traditional mats that are designed for carpets. Sometimes this is not always the best option to choose for your workplace needs and it is good to determine what is going to be best suited for your office chair and surface your chair rolls on.
Older office chair models can be adjusted by turning a thick bolt which allows you to pick the height you would like to have your chair positioned at. Adjusting the height of your chair may seem like common sense and a trivial matter, but it is actually very important to adjust the height to fit your body type. Chairs that are not properly adjusted to meet the needs of the user may cause back pain, eye strain from not being properly positioned in front of your computer screen, fatigue from poor circulation, and numerous other health issues. This can be especially true if you sit in the same position for long periods of time.
After you fully understand how to adjust your chair, place the chair in front of the work area in which you will be using it most often. If your chair can be adjusted pneumatically simply apply a little pressure and push down on the seat while pulling the lever up to have the chair go down in height. To have the chair go up, apply a little pressure to the bottom of the seat and pull up with one hand while simultaneously pulling the lever up with the other. Computer chairs that do not have a pneumatic lift can be adjusted by loosening the height adjustment bolt by hand and pulling up or pushing down on the seat until the desired height is reached. Once you are happy with the height of the chair you will then need to tighten the bolt back to its original place.
Next you will want to determine the area the mat is going to be used. You want to have a mat that will cover enough of the floor for you to be able to at the very least roll back to get out of your chair. It is best to use a tape measurer and measure from the desk outward to see how far the mat should extend before your purchase. Most chair mats are sold in multiple sizes to accommodate most desk areas and are large enough for regular uses. Measurements can be found in product spec and information area, so it is good to have your desk areas measurements prepared beforehand. If you typically like to roll your chair from one desk to another or between two areas it is best to get the largest mat possible.
Once you have determined where you will be spending most of your time sitting and ergonomic accessories that may also play a part in the height adjustment of your chair, you will want to locate where the button or lever is on your chair that controls the height. On most chair models, it is generally located on the right hand side of the chair right below the seat. Some higher end chairs may even have pictures on their levers explaining what each lever on the chair does. All chair models will vary, and you will need to take the time to understand what each button does in order to fully adjust your chair to meet your needs.
Padded metal chairs are somewhat more comfortable than the plain chairs, but offer many of the same advantages. If these chairs are covered in fabric, however, they are more prone to stains from food and other materials. If you only occasionally need chairs, the best option may be to rent the chairs when they are needed for those special occasions. Check with party supply stores about rental rates for both chairs and tables that you may need. Many of the party stores offer delivery and pickup at a slightly higher price. Since the chairs will be returned to the store after your event, you do not have to worry about storage.
