Ergonomic office chairs and swivel desk chairs are a vital element of an ergonomic workstation. Office seating manufacturers have differing approaches to the solution for comfort, with the best being based on original research into work, materials and ergonomics. Desk chairs are available for hard or soft floors…regular castors for carpet, soft-tyred castors for stone or wood floors, with the option of braked castors as well.
The finish of a desk chair plays an important role in the comfort and performance of a chair. Upholstery offers the greater sit comfort especially with fabrics using a high wool content. Fabrics using a high proportion of synthetic fibre will perform well in terms of wear and stain resistance, but typically offer a much lower performance for breathability and overall comfort. Low cost chairs using polyester will usually have the poorest heat dissipation making the chair feel less comfortable over an extended seated period.
Mesh has become a very popular chair cover, balancing durability with heat dissipation. Overall mesh is possibly less comfortable than good quality wool fabrics but in general are a good compromise for desk chairs. The current trend is for chair backs in mesh and seats in fabric.
