Benefits of Automotive Inspired Office Chairs
Our premium ergonomic chairs by RECARO® and KAB Seating are automotive inspired and represent some of the finest office chairs manufactured today. These chairs are designed and engineered for years of trouble free service. Because of the automotive based designs, they are
to the same safety criteria as their automotive counterparts. FMVSS (Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards) mandates that these chairs protect occupants in vehicle collisions. Because of this, the construction of automotive ergonomic seating is highly engineered and durable. We can confidently assure you that no other manufacturer of office chairs can meet the requirements of FMVSS.
Traditional office chair manufacturers do not have the multi-million dollar budgets for research and development. Many of their components are purchased from low cost suppliers and many times the lowest bidders resulting in a final inferior product. RECARO® products for example, through their partnerships with the world's premiere automotive companies such as include Aston Martin , Audi, Jaguar, Porsche , Lamborghini and Mercedes Benz , incorporate the latest in ergonomic technology, materials, manufacturing and assembly techniques. Fit and finish of RECARO® and Kab ergonomic seating is absolutely world-class.
Key Structural Design Features of Automotive Inspired Office Chairs
Automotive Inspired Office Chairs feature automotive grade steel frame structures. The grade of steel is extremely important. Metals approved by automotive suppliers are high tech, high tensile strength alloys. The frame designs of RECARO® and KAB Seating heavy duty office chairs consist of tubular and stamped metal components. RECARO® for example uses a solid steel backrest pan that is designed to hold you in place while forming to the natural "S-Curve" of your spine. These components are robotically welded to insure consistently uniform and deep penetration welds. Many import chairs are constructed of low grade metals that are 'stick' welded in third world countries. In short, these are not reliable welds and can prematurely fail.
A key component of a superior heavy duty office chair are the recliner mechanisms. RECARO® for example uses a patented mechnism that is infinitely adjustable and locks both sides of the backrest into place. Many manufacturers use a steel strap design which produces a 'floppy' backrest. These designs can create back stress as a user shifts arounds to find back support. Basically the backrest is moving target as you are attempting to settle into it.
