One of the most critical office furniture buying decisions is which ergonomic task chair is best for my work force? How will one task chair address the needs of my entire company, from the front office to top executives? If you choose wisely, there can be one ergonomic task chair that suits even the most demanding employee.
When business owners buy office furniture, task chairs are often not given the full consideration they deserve. Office furniture buyers make a big mistake when they buy premium desks and workstations, and then put inferior chairs in the office to save money. Quality task chairs are an important investment because the right chairs will aid in the overall health and well-being of the entire staff. Because the human body is not designed to sit all day, a good ergonomic chair supports the spine and promotes better health.
Here are some important factors to consider when looking for new office chairs.
1. What are the most important functions in a great ergonomic task chair?
The most important functions will vary with each person, but smart choices in chair functions should make the user comfortable all day. The term “ergonomics” means built to support the human body for the task at hand. While there are several factors to consider, every great ergonomic chair has a synchronized back feature, which allows the back to move independently of the seat. This allows the user to lean back without having his feet lifted off the ground, thus avoiding pressure on the lower back.
The second feature is to insist on a medium density supportive seat cushion where the user does not bottom out, also helping to keep their posture correct. It is best to avoid task chairs that are either too firm or too soft. Additional features that are helpful to customize the feel are adjustable seat depth and back height. Many chair buyers also choose one with lumbar supportbehind the back (preferably mesh back material) for added comfort and posture correction.
2. What should an office manager expect to spend per task chair?
With much of a company’s work force working remotely during Covid-19, there is a greater need for those employees to be comfortable for long periods of time, with a proper ergonomic task chair.
It’s the job of any good office furnishings dealer to work within a client’s budget, so I have found nice chairs for the under $200 budget and with every $50 added beyond that, you should expect to get additional features. The average price for a good quality mid-price task chair from 1 Source is between $250- $350, a range in which there is ample selection of styles and features. When you consider that the investment in a high-quality task chair will yield many years of use, then the price is reasonable.
3. What are some of the manufacturers / products you like best in 2020?

4. Do task chairs usually come with warranties?
Most chair manufacturers’ warranty products for 6 years, and many offer lifetime warranties on the chair’s structural integrity; however, fabric wear is usually not covered.

For this reason, we discuss a fabric’s durability as demonstrated in textile manufacturers “double rubs” abrasion tests. Fabrics that withstand 100,000+ double rubs are more durable for busy offices than fabrics that can only get to 50,000. Opinions differ about how much importance should be placed on abrasion tests, saying that it is only one aspect of how fabrics hold up to constant wear in the workplace. Buyers should also consider stain resistant colors and patterns in their search for task chairs. See more here: https://www.brentanofabrics.com/faqs/abrasion-act-testing-standards/
5. Please explain the delivery process for task chairs:
At 1 Source, we want every customer to receive product fully assembled and 100% perfect, and chairs are no exception. Small chair quantities can sometimes be shipped direct to the client, as we do for some out-of-state clients. However, most of our projects require more than a few chairs, and we would have an experienced installer deliver the products to ensure the chairs are properly assembled. In general, task chairs require minimal assembly, but most chairs do not ship fully assembled.
