    • Purchasing Heavy Duty Office Furniture

      Businesses across the United States employ and serve an eclectic mix of individuals of different shapes and sizes; a range of people perhaps broader than any country in the world. With each individual being unique and completely different it is important to take into consideration their needs especially when it comes to purchasing office furniture. Office furniture is a big investment, so it is important to consider all necessary elements prior to making a purchase. Will most people entering your office have the same body type and build? If your answer to this question is no, then it is safer to prepare for situations when heavy duty furniture may be needed that will be durable enough to withstand substantial usage.

      Purchasing heavy duty furniture is also beneficial for companies that have most of their employees or customers seated for the majority of the day. It is easy to forget just how often you may be sitting in an office chair until you think about how many hours you work per week and then consider how much use your chair is getting over just a year's time. This is especially true for work environments that have furniture that is in use all day everyday such as call centers and dispatch centers where employees are switching shifts but the same chair is used. Office chairs that are in use twenty 24 hours a day 7 days a week require special heavy duty seating to ensure the chair will not break within the first few months and instead lasts for years to come.

      Steel

      There are many benefits to owning heavy duty furniture, the first being the quality of construction. Heavy duty office chairs are often engineered with an indestructible all steel frame with no easily breakable plastic components. Many are also designed and warranted to hold up to 500 lbs., essentially making the chair usable for just about anyone. The parts that comprise the chair are also stronger and manufactured better to stand up to even the toughest work environments. There are heavy duty mechanisms, more back and seat support, sturdier casters, a larger base, and a long-lasting cylinder. Most manufacturer warranties also showcase their belief in their heavy duty products by offering 10 year warranties with some even offering a lifetime warranty on all working parts.

      Heavy

      Another advantage of owning heavy duty furniture is that all your employees, customers, and clients will be guaranteed to fit comfortably no matter their shape or size. Often times bigger and taller individuals have a difficult time finding furniture that will allow them to sit comfortably and more importantly fit their body proportions. This often leads to chairs that break underneath them which can cause serious injuries or at the very least a bruise to show for it the next day. Big and tall chairs are designed specifically for bigger individuals and can be found on any specialty seating website as well as some office furniture showrooms. Big and tall furniture has expanded to include office chairs, guest chairs, conference seating, and task chairs; essentially providing a seat solution for just about any office seating application.

      Heavy

      Ultimately, purchasing heavy duty furniture  and chairs is the best return on investment for any business. Once the purchase is made, no longer will you need to worry about furniture breaking every few months and then needing to spend the time searching for replacement furniture. Your furniture will already be built with quality components to withstand even the toughest working conditions and be able to support heavier individuals. Purchasing office chairs should be a long-term investment, and it is both impractical and wasteful to have to buy new furniture every year. While it may cost more upfront, having furniture that lasts for more than ten years and comfortably supports every person that steps into your office will greatly outweigh the money spent.

      Finding a company that has an expansive line of heavy duty office furniture may be difficult, even more so if looking in retail locations that typically only stock cheap furniture.

But, they don’t stop there, this chair rocks with its modern mesh back look, rugged appearance, and the one touch seat height adjustment this big and tall office chair couldn’t be more welcomed by the big and tall community.

    • Office Chair Review: Mayline 6446AGL

      Mayline 6446AGLThree Sweet Features:

      1. A big chair fold away arms for easy entry.

      2. High quality leather that is soft and durable.

      3. Steel reinforced components.

      The Thorough Review:

      The Mayline 6446AGL is our most popular Big and Tall Office chair for a) Big and Tall users, and b) Dispatch centers. It is very popular for the former because of the size of the chair - it is big and capable. The seat is wide and thick, using a high density foam that ensures the foam will withstand longer use by anyone. The back is tall too, which provides a a chair that can be used by a wider range of people.

      The components that make up this chair are high quality and durable - for example, the chair has a steel reinforced plate on the bottom for support and longevity, and the chair comes with an oversize metal base as well. The foam is what we call High Density Foam - thicker and more durable than standard foam.

      There are a few critical features that make this chair very nice - aside from the component makeup and durability. One is the pivot arm feature. The arms are capped in leather, and pivot upward out of the way for two reasons: 1. More space means more comfort and 2. It makes it easy to get in and out of the chair. The arms, although they pivot and are connected by a single point to the back of the chair, are durable and sturdy enough to put weight and support on, too. Another great feature of this chair is the inflatable lumbar support. While a very underrated feature, inflatable lumbar means the user can adjust the lower back pressure to exactly where they feel comfortable. It's a very specific means of lumbar support.

      Overall, a great chair. It's really worth the additional dollars - instead of buying multiple chairs that keep breaking and aren't comfortable for around $125 dollars, it's a wise choice to invest in the durable and comfortable Mayline 6446AGL Big and Tall Office Chair.

      The Ratings:

      Durability: Very, very durable. Steel reinforced plating means weight rating of up to 450 lbs.

      Adjust-ability: It features two things that set it apart from other chairs - inflatable air lumbar and pivot arms that fold up.

      Plushness:

      It's plush, and the top-grain leather is soft. However, it is not a "super soft sink into" type chair, since it is built more for long term comfort and durability.

      Overall Rating (Not an average):

      It's one of SitBetter's more popular chairs for a reason. Big, durable, comfortable - worth the price.

    • Big and Tall Office Chairs

      In the past I’ve brought you through my struggles to find the right office chair for my home office, and I’ve taken the liberty to bring you through the pains that were associated with an office chair that wasn’t ergonomically correct for me. Well, with the average height range of men from five-feet, six-inches up to six-feet even, I rank near the bottom of that average scale at five-feet and seven-inches. So, that means finding items that fit, like an office chair, is going to be a bit easier than for someone a lot taller than me.

      It begs to question though, what about big and tall men? Where can they find big and tall office chairs?
      But wait, let’s get something out of the way first. I know there are big and tall women out there who work in offices, but I’m working with some statistics. On average though, women do tend to be a bit shorter than men. In the United States alone women are roughly six-inches shorter.

      Alright? Now, back to my blog.

      Out of nearly one-billion men in the world, almost sixteen-million are over six-feet tall. So, when it comes to finding big and tall office chairs what can they do?

      In the past, decades actually, this segment of the population has literally had to squeeze into office chairs which were uncomfortable and clearly not ergonomically correct for their larger stature. Are there even big and tall office chairs? Of course there are and Sitbetter.com has a ton of them.

      Big and tall office chairs are just as comfortable and stylish as any office chair for the average person. Depending on the model they can support up to five-hundred pounds, with wider seats and higher backs. The big and tall office chairs have the usual height adjustments, lumbar supports, and swiveling seats, and most of them have arm adjustments. For me?  The arm adjustment is the key to keeping my elbows at the ergonomically required ninety degrees.

      If you are in the upper echelon searching for the right big and tall office chair you should take some time and check out Sitbetter.com. We have a huge selection of big and tall office chairs and you’ll surely find the right fit for your body and your wallet.
