Without a doubt, the right office chairs make a massive difference to your work environment. When it comes to selecting the right office chair, do you know what to look for? With so many different office chairs out there, it’s hard to determine which chairs will be ergonomically suitable for the way you work. The right office chair is going to support you in all the right ways and look good at the same time.

If you already know the type or style of chair you want, then you are halfway to getting your new office chair and you’ll easily find the perfect one for you. If you’re not sure what you’re looking for or would like to know more about seating mechanics and what you’re buying, then we’ve put together the handy guide below or follow the link to our site Seating Mechanism Explained

A good work chair should be:

  • fit for the intended purpose, enabling you to move freely and carry out tasks comfortably and efficiently
  • able to accommodate everyone who intends to use it, regardless of size or shape
  • supportive of your body in several comfortable postures
  • suited to your workstation, especially the height of the table or desk and the layout of the equipment on it.

How long will you be using the chair for?

  • occasionally - less than 2 hours a day
  • working part-time between 2 to 4 hours a day
  • more than 4 hours a day - full time

The longer you’re using the chair, the more adjustable features you’ll need. All the adjustments should be within easy reach and you should be able to operate them, while seated, with minimal effort. Lumbar support is essential if you’re going to use the chair for long periods

Will anyone else be using your chair?

If s/he is quite different to you in height, weight and build, then you’ll need a chair which easily adjusts for each of you and has height-adjustable lumbar support.

Typically when you’re working in an office, you’ll spend a lot of time sitting down to work. Sitting in that same position for long periods of time adds stress to your spine. To help avoid these kinds of problems it’s ideal to select a chair that has an ergonomic design. Many people mistake ergonomic as an actual type of chair, but it really means that the chair helps support the lower back and encourages you to keep a proper posture.

Sufficient Support

A truly ergonomic office chair will be designed to aid you in your working environment. Allowing you to work better and for longer amounts of time, they ultimately result in greater efficiency. Sculpted to the body to support the lumbar region and the natural s-shape of the spine, a good quality seat will encourage correct posture. This will help to prevent neck strain, back pain and a host of other health problems in later life. Promoting good circulation, they will also work to minimise discomfort and fatigue, whilst ample padding will go a long way in delivering a comfortable and cushioned seating experience.

Seat Material & Size

The material used on the seat will affect the overall look of the chair as well as how it feels when you sit on it.Fabric is a popular choice due to its breathability, however mesh is another great option. Not quite so dense, it allows air to circulate to prevent you from overheating. Yet whilst fabric is susceptible to staining, highly durable Faux leather delivers a low maintenance, wipe clean surface that’s immensely practical. Alternatively, Real leather exudes a luxurious aesthetic with an enduring finish that won’t crack or peel. For more helpful information.

The overall seat width is also something to bear in mind, especially in busy or compact office environments. Providing sufficient room, the ideal chair will be wide enough that you don’t feel constrained or hemmed in, yet slim enough to fit between any drawers or under desk storage.

Backrests & Armrests

When seated for prolonged periods of time, it’s especially important the lower part of your back is supported. For sufficient comfort we would suggest a mid-height backrest at the very least, ergonomically sculpted to the natural s-shape curve of the spine to best sustain your lumbar region. For premium support you can opt for an elevated backrest with a cushioned head pillow, which will help to take the strain off your neck and shoulders. Similarly, Armrests make for a more relaxing seat by providing a natural resting spot for the arms. Whilst some are padded with foam for extra comfort, these can be a little larger, so we recommend you measure your desk beforehand to ensure they will fit beneath. Others are adjustable, moving up and down, so you can tailor the chair to your individual needs.



These are the standard type of chair that your everyday desk worker would expectto use.They provide a comfortable seat for people working at a computer chair for hours.

Operator chairs come in manydifferent styles with a few different features.As standard,they will feature a plastic base with a decent swivel castors for movability.The adjustment mechanism tends to be basic,offering the ability to change the seat height,back height and the back-angle adjustment.



Higher-end Task chairs will come with more adjustment features such as seat slide position and adjustable backs for better lumbar support. Some even have a headrest, and adjustable lumbar support, If you tend to sit and work for more than 6 hours at a time, it’s worth knowing that cheaper chairs will not be as suitable for working in for long periods of time. Operator chairs come in a wide range of materials. The seats will tend to be a moulded plastic shell with adequate padding, finished in different materials such as fabric, leather, and even mesh.



Executive chairs tend to be larger with more adjustments options making them much more comfortable. The seat tends to be longer with deeper padding. Backs tend to be higher and also have deeper padding.Top quality executive chairs will have a metal base with robust castors. The mechanisms underneath the chair will be metal and the seat itself tends to be metal or moulded plastic with padding finished in either real leather or a leatherette material. Cheaper versions will look the same but may have moulded plastic backs with a dark fabric or faux-leather finish.

6 Steps to help reduce back pain.

06 Dec 2018

Sitting in an office chair for prolonged periods of time can definitely cause low back pain or worsen an existing back problem. The main reason behind this is that sitting, in an office chair or in general. When sitting in an office chair for a long period, the natural tendency for most people is to slouch over or slouch down in the chair, and this posture can overstretch the spinal ligaments and strain the discs and surrounding structures in the spine. Over time, incorrect sitting posture can contribute to or worsen back pain.

    1. Elbow measure
      First, begin by sitting comfortably as close as possible to your desk so that your upper arms are parallel to your spine. Rest your hands on your work surface, If your elbows are not at a 90-degree angle, adjust your office chair height either up or down.
    2. Thigh measure
      Check that you can easily slide your fingers under your thigh at the leading edge of the office chair. If it is too tight, you need to prop your feet up with an adjustable footrest. If you are unusually tall and there is more than a finger width between your thigh and the chair, you need to raise the desk or work surface so that you can raise the height of your office chair.
    3. Calf measure
      With your bottom pushed against the chair back, try to pass your clenched fist between the back of your calf and the front of your office chair. If you can’t do that easily, then the office chair is too deep. You will need to adjust the backrest forward.
    4. Low back support
      Your bottom should be pressed against the back of your chair, and there should be a cushion that causes your lower back to arch slightly so that you don’t slump forward or slouch down in the chair as you tire over time. This low back support in the office chair is essential to minimize the load (strain) on your back. Never slump or slouch forward in the office chair, as that places extra stress on the structures in the low back, and in particular, on the lumbar discs.
    5. Resting eye level
      Close your eyes while sitting comfortably with your head facing forward. Slowly open your eyes. Your gaze should be aimed at the center of your computer screen. If your computer screen is higher or lower than your gaze, you need to either raise or lower your chair.
    6. Armrest
      Adjust the armrest of the office chair so that it just slightly lifts your arms at the shoulders. Use of an armrest on your office chair is important to take some of the strain off your upper spine and shoulders, and it should make you less likely to slouch forward in your chair.

Following these simple steps will help in choosing the correct ergonomic office chair to help ease back pain when working for over 4 hrs per day. No matter how good your chair is please remember to take a break, go for a  walk to the other end of the office, or do light stretching to help the blood flow and help keep joints and muscle loose.

Are you ready for GDPR

15 May 2018

On May 25th 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will become enforceable. The regulation aims to give control over personal data back to individuals by strengthening and unifying data protection regulation within the European Union. The impact of the regulation will be far-reaching, as it applies to any company that holds or processes personal data of individuals residing within the European Union.

The penalty for GDPR non-compliance is up to €20M or 4% of annual global turnover. The cost of ignoring GDPR is too high, forcing corporations to revaluate the way they handle consumer data, and to install new processes and technologies enabling the consumers right to “own” their data.

“Nobody really knows what’s going to happen when the clock strikes midnight on May 25,” says Dan Frank, principal with Deloitte Risk and Financial Advisory Cyber Risk Services. “I have heard, speaking to a lot of my EU-based colleagues, that it’s going to take a while for regulatory authorities to conduct their investigations. We may see it take six, eight-whatever months in order for these regulatory actions to come out. Until there’s an incident, you don’t necessarily have a problem.”

In other words, even if you’re late to the game with your GDPR compliance program, you should still get started.

3 Reasons why you might have the incorrect chair at work!

14 Mar 2018

Are you using the incorrect chair at work do you have to move around to get comfortable, well it could be you are using the wrong chair and as an employer we must make sure all our staff are comfortable as this creates a happy working environment. We offer an in-depth discussion with the person or persons that is in need of the correct office chair.

Employees who are sitting in badly set-up DSE chairs and adopting poor seated postures run the risk of developing problems such as general discomfort or aches and pains in the wrists, arms, shoulders, neck, back or legs. If you work at a computer workstation, whether at a fixed desk location or ‘hot desking’, You have to make sure you are correctly using the equipment supplied. Always pay attention to how you are using your chair your new chair should be supplied with users instructions, Remember the chair won’t be set up for your use as it will have been manufactured and all components tested to make sure they are in working order, if you following the below brief guidance this should help you correctly set up your chair and feel confident to make minor adjustments as necessary.

1. Chair Height

You should be able to adjust the height of your chair so that your forearms are approximately parallel to floor and your feet are on the floor. If your feet don’t reach the floor when your arms are in the correct position, use a footrest. Hips should be slightly higher than your knees, to help blood flow up your legs.

2. Back and pelvis support

The chair should offer adequate support for your back and for your lumbar region lower back. On some chairs you may also be able to adjust the tilt of the seat base(seat Tilt) in relation to the back support. This will help provide a comfortable angle for your pelvis and hips in relation to your torso. On some chairs you will be able move the seat base backwards and forwards (Seat Slide) so the depth of the seat can be adjusted to suit you.


Chairs do not need to have arms fitted. Where arms are fitted, they should be adjustable. Chair arms in a fixed position tend to restrict your ability to sit close enough to the desk, leading to poor seated postures and discomfort. If this is the case, it is advisable to remove the chair arms.

If you dont think you have any of the above you may have the wrong chair and this will effect you work,speak with you line manager to find out how to get a risk assessment!
