• Can an office chair with castors be stable, i.e. with bare legs instead of castors?

  • What would you recommend – an office chair with fabric upholstery or a chair with natural leather?
  • It’s quite individual, depending on what you prefer.

  • What if an office chair scratches the floor?
  • When buying an office chair, you need to pay attention to the castors of the chair. Often these are castors for soft flooring. If a chair is used on hard flooring, it may damage or scratch it over time.

  • What is the average weight an office chair is applicable for?
  • As a standard, all office chairs are designed for a maximum human weight of 110-120 kg. However, there are special office chairs for people weighing more.

These types of chairs are made with dedicated mechanisms, much sturdier castors and a more robust chair structure.
  • What is the best chair fabric for sitting or working for long periods of time?
  • When choosing a chair, attention should be paid to the wear of the chair fabric, which is determined by Martindale’s fabric abrasion (wear) tests. Manufacturers usually indicate the number of friction cycles for each fabric category. The optimum number of friction cycles should be at least 30000-40000 cycles. However, for longer periods of work or intensive use of a chair, it is advisable to have a Martindale number of 50 000 cycles or more.
  • What if the back of a chair is no longer suitable?
