Differences Between Office Chair Types
Office chairs come in a variety of guises, and it can often be confusing in figuring out which one is best for you. The main categories that office chairs come in are operator chairs, office chairs and executive chairs. Operator chairs are the more lightweight office chairs in the range, coming without armrests and with casters to give easier movement around a desk or office space. Operator chairs have moulded seats and are usually covered in hard wearing fabric, designed to take quite a lot of punishment on a daily basis. Usually with backrests adjustable for height and tilt, operator chairs are made to be comfortable but very compact.
Office chairs are usually more heavily padded than operator chairs and have the addition of armrests. They come in a variety of guises, with leather, faux leather and mesh seats, and those with and without casters. Office chairs are primarily designed for use in one area, sitting for long periods of time. The higher levels of padding serve to make them more comfortable, and taller backrests give further support for your back. Office chairs are very ergonomically minded to ensure that they are comfortable however long you sit on them.
Executive Office Chairs
Executive chairs are even more comfortable versions of office chairs. Designed to sit at a desk, executive chairs can he heavier and more padded. With high density foam padding sculpted to the body, executive chairs are plush and made to sink into, padded armrests and added neck support increasing the cosseting nature. Some executive chairs also come with added lumbar support, again making them even more comfortable. Whatever your needs, Atlantic Shopping is sure to have just the right type of office chair for you.
