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.
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.
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.
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. To view Sitbetter’s extended online catalog of heavy duty furniture that will suit every businesses’ needs click here!
