By April 10, 2020April 14th, 2020No Comments

With so many employees setting up home offices at this time, it is important that they are using a suitable chair made for the purpose of sitting at a desk. Dining room chairs being utilised as office chairs can lead to back strain, leg problems and carpal tunnel, as they are not designed to be used in an office environment. An office chair needs to be comfortable and supportive, promoting good back health for extended periods of time. Ergonomics studies show that a supportive office chair increases productivity and maximises the efficiency of the person sitting in it. Joinery Makers‘ extensive selection of high quality office chairs guarantee comfort and the physical support your employees need right now.

Be ‘chair-wise’.

While we can’t control a lot of what is going on at the moment, you can make an informed decision regarding the chair you or your employees use. Be chair-wise! Joinery Makers have many different comfortable, yet stylish office chair options. Choose the one that best suits, by considering these important features…

Lumbar Support: Proper support of the lower back area is important in preventing back strain that can worsen and develop into sciatica. Our Oxford Task Chair has an upright back that is tight-weave mesh with adjustable tension for ultimate comfort and support of the curve in the lumbar area of the body.

Adjustability: Seat heights and armrests in particular need to be adjustable when seated for extended periods. Our Park Lane Task Chair is our most customizable; featuring synchronised seat and back tilt, four position tilt lock, adjustable tension, sliding seat function, 3D height adjustable armrests and gas-lift adjustable chair height. It is important that you are able to adjust the seat height so that feet are resting flat on the floor comfortably. Armrests should be close to the body and allow the shoulders to relax. Armrest height should also match the height of the desk which will prevent strain to the shoulders. ThePark Lane Task Chair allows you to completely customise your position to ensure a perfect fit every time, no matter what the task.

Wheel Base: A sturdy wheel base enabling rolling and swivelling with ease is important for easy access to various parts of the desk, otherwise arm fatigue can result from over extending to reach various items. Our Bond Exec Low Back Chair not only looks stylish with its polished walnut wood outer seat for that truly luxe feel, but has a smooth 360 degree spin and a five castor wheel base for effortless movement and stability.

Fabric: The fabric should be breathable to keep the chair from becoming hot and uncomfortable after hours of sitting. Additionally the chair should have enough padding to support the person sitting in it without feeling the base of the chair through the cushion. Our Regent High Back Chair is made of soft-touch fabric, has a cut-out in the backrest to allow for air circulation and is made of high-density moulded foam ensuring longevity and the continued comfort of the chair.
