Office Chair Features
The most fundamental feature of an office chair is the foam padding that makes up the majority of the body of the seat, ensuring you’re comfortable when sitting for long periods of time. A tall backrest is common, ensuring optimum support for the entire back. Some models come with separate headrests, making them even more supportive and relaxing by taking the strain off the neck and shoulders.
With Or Without Castors
Office chairs come in one of two guises, with casters or a fixed frame. Those with casters usually have large spoked bases to distribute the weight, ensuring stability and ease of movement. In situations where you do not need to move around, fixed frame models are ideal and offer some light damping for extra comfort. Furthermore they’re good for carpeted surfaces, which casters can sometimes leave threadbare. One advantage that designs with casters have over fixed frame variants is the gas lift mechanism that connects the base to the seat. This gives the chair adjustable height and allows for 360 degree rotation, making it substantially more mobile. In addition many possess pre-tensioned springs that allow the seat to recline.
Types Of Armrests
Armrests come in a variety of forms. Basic armrests can be metal or plastic, and are made to provide additional support when seated. Padded armrests are a step up, with foam cushioning for enhanced comfort. Next comes adjustable armrests which allow you to tailor the chair to your personal requirements, raising them for added support or lowering them to give more elbow room. At the top of the range are swiveling armrests, which rotate out of the way for added space, allowing the chair to slide beneath the desk with ease.
