The first thing that you must consider when looking for the perfect office chair is seat height width and depth making sure your office chair fits you properly is one of the most important things you have to consider when buying the next office chair and that's why understanding seat height, Depth and Width. Your next chair is essential, so we see how we need to understand how we get the seat to a proper height to fit you properly.
Secondly, if the chair width is too wide, you will be able to fit between the armrest comfortably not getting proper support for your arms shoulders neck and head lastly you want to make sure that the death of the chair fits you and the length of your legs this is something that might be it works well and is something that's considered to be an ergonomic adjustment which is called a sliding seat pan.
This is something to definitely look for if you're not within that normal range of adults. Seat comfort is one of the most important things to consider when shopping for your next office chair a seat that's too soft has too much pillow padding might create issues for your back,
Making it uncomfortable to sit for long hours likewise if you have a seat pad that's too firm you can get soreness in places like your products back here like. This can maybe even make it to you don't want to use the chair so finding that right comfort level is significant and likely something that you know from your previous sitting experience in all our office chair that you may have used.
Back support is something that you have to consider with your next office chair but understanding what type of back support you need and what to look for in the next officer that you choose is something that maybe you don't necessarily understand that's because there are a lot of things like gimmicky lumbar support pad that you find some cheaper chairs.
That might look at first glance like they offer good support, but they don't necessarily offer any support at all. Likewise when you find chairs that don't really have a lumbar support pad but maybe just the natural curve in the backrest might actually offer better support in some of the chairs with those more gimmicky lumbar supports.
Hence, if you're someone who wants a lot of lower lumbar support look through the reviews see what people are saying a more pronounced lumbar might help otherwise chairs like the very chair that we offer from Aerotech has a really pronounced curve that many users have actually found offer better support than again like those gimmicky lumbar supports that we see on some of the cheaper chairs and office depot and OfficeMax.
armrest comfort is something that you actually have to consider especially for those looking to sit in their chair ergonomically correct for long periods of time/ now this is really two different parts the first is the actual comfort or softness of the arm pads depending on what you prefer you may want a firmer arm pad or you may want to softer arm had the kind of sink into. It's actually something that you have to think about and the actual fit of the farmers themselves so when we look at our res. That has a 4-dimensional adjustment this includes height adjustment width adjustment depth adjustment and a pivoting adjustment which really is a nice wide range to fit a wide range of users.
Ergonomic adjustments for the foundation of most ergonomic chairs and that's why we need to consider additional ergonomic adjustments when finding the perfect office chair some of these include things like tilt lock multi positioning tilt lock forward seat tilt function back height adjustment and then even a headrest specifically when we look at headrest we want to have a headrest that's a functional headrest it's a kind of going through that list still live with that means, basically it allows you to sort of tilt back in the chair and locked in different positions.
Many chairs will have specific spots where you can lock into place what other chairs may have infant locked meaning that you can really lock into any position you want between upright fully positioned to where ever that year and then it's all the way back reclined position. The forward see tilt is more of a unique function that is something that we see and chairs like the mesh the people really like is it kind of pops them forward it is good for tasking typing on your computer.
If you're a taller individual you may want to consider a chair with back height adjustment is this will allow giving better support for your upper part of your shoulders and then, lastly, many users here on our YouTube channel discussed wanting headrest they wanna see more headless and videos but well I think headrests are a good ergonomic function for some users this happens has to be functional. So think about how you be using the chair and where you really want to headrest hit you wanted to hit in your neck what do you want to almost kind of bump up against the back of your head and provide support for your head.
The build quality of all of the chairs that we review now if you want to have a chair that lasts a long time to build quality is very important now doesn't necessarily guarantee a chair will last forever it can be a good indicator to know how long it will last and how much you really can throw at that chair and have it sort of to be exactly like it was when you first purchased it maintaining that original experience thing you want to look for with build quality, of course, fit and finish.
The overall look of the chair is probably one of the more important things for its statics and then added when you look at the components of the chair you'll see some of the cheap chairs that are again in office depot Amazon staples places like that they have off the shelf components they're mass-produced they're not necessarily up to the highest level build quality.
We look at products from maybe like Steelcase higher-end products from Herman Miller even Hayworth you'll see the components that are being used on their chairs are designed and developed specifically for that chair generally speaking. We see that these products are much higher build quality overall.
Depending on your level of handedness the assembly process of the new office chair it's something that you probably want to consider well for most this is something you should only have to do so there maybe they will like a give and take I guess you could say I'm spending a little bit more time on that initial assembly. If you're someone who absolutely hates to assemble chairs, you have to consider how long and how in-depth the assembly process of the chair that you're purchasing will beat.
There's likely to be good resources online whether its videos or instructions that are in the form of like a PDF or paper format there should be a good resource for you to give it give yourself an idea I guess on how long it should take you specifically to assemble your next chair.
as mentioned before buying a new office chair definitely a financial investment for most of us and that's why we need to consider the warranty on our next office chair and not all warranties were created equal, but this does give us a better idea on value and why some chairs cost what they do higher-end brands such as Herman Miller Steelcase in Hayward will offer some of the most expensive officers, but they do have the most robust warranties available in the market there are things you actually have to look at in the warranty to better understand if it provides good value specifically we want to look at the length of the period are there certain things excluded a lot of times what you'll find is warranties will exclude certain components of a chair.
Such things like your casters mechanism armrest those things might be covered for the life of the chair or a period of maybe 12 or 15 years but the farm in the upholstery might have a much lower or shorter time period of coverage. Additionally want to look at weight ratings how much is the chair covered for is it 250 400 and what is the weight of the users that will be in the chair and then lastly the thing you need to consider is the purity of timer sitting here is that they cover on a daily or weekly basis you find the most office your warranties will be a 40-hour workweek well someone offers 24/7 coverage meaning you could sit in it all day every day screwed any part of the warranty.
The last thing that you have to consider when buying your next office chair is the return policy of the chair that you buy things to look out for of course is the length of time that you have from when you receive the chair or when we ship to actually try the chair if you have to hang on to the original packaging things of that nature and then, additionally are there any fees that are associated should you decide to return the chair in the office furniture world in just the furniture world, in general, many times there are restocking fees especially in the United States.
