Typically sat on for 7-8 hours a day, five days a week, the standard office chair is the unsung hero of office life.
No other item of office furniture impacts us more – both positively and potentially negatively – on the occupational health, comfort and productivity of office workers – so we can’t emphasise enough the importance of choosing the right operator chair.
They come as standard with adjustable height and (usually) adjustable back angle and all with a rotating (swivel) seat.
In general, the higher the price of an operator chair, the more features, knobs and levers it will have – e.g. adjustable lumbar, synchro or asynchro tilt, permanent back contact, adjustable back height, height-adjustable arms.
The boring little bits and pieces that will help make sure whatever budget you've got for your chair, you'll be comfortable and won't ruin your carpet.
