Office chairs – for comfort at the desk without harming your back
Working while seated has become a normal activity in many industries – whether in production, research or at service providers. In order to protect workers, lawmakers have therefore issued specifications for office chairs. They should be designed to maintain a healthy back. In the range available from KAISER+KRAFT, we only offer you office and swivel chairs that comply with the specifications. You can also choose from a large number of attractive models to suit your company.
You can find more information on the specifications for office chairs and swivel chairs as well as important tips on workplace design in our guide, ''Guidelines for workstation equipment''.
What matters most when choosing an office chair?
Office chairs should be selected for each employee individually. In particular, body size and weight are two key factors when choosing a chair. A good office chair or swivel chair is easy to adapt to individual needs and physical conditions. When making a choice, pay attention to the following:
- The taller an employee is, the higher the back rest and the gas spring extension should be.
- The seat depth of the office chair should be chosen so that the legs can be placed at a 90 degree angle to the floor, and the buttocks reach the back rest.
- The heavier an employee, the firmer the padding should be.
The more elements of an office chair that can be adapted, the better it can be individually configured. Premium products, for example, offer adjustable armrests to relieve pressure on the shoulders and cervical spine. Likewise, there are swivel chairs with adjustable back rests and adjustable support for the lower spine. A tilting and rotating seat joint that can be fixed in place also ensures good contact between the body and the office swivel chair when leaning back.
Materials for office swivel chairs: leather or fabric?
When it comes to the choice of materials for your office chairs, you can look for what you like, or follow your company's design specifications. While smooth materials such as leather are easier to clean and make a high quality impression, fabric covers are actively breathing. A model with a well ventilated mesh back rest or an office chair with a microfibre cover ensures a pleasant level of comfort, especially in warm temperatures. Also make sure that the castors of the office chairs are designed for hard or soft floors respectively. This way you avoid scratching the floor while ensuring that the swivel chair rolls smoothly over the respective surface.
