  RECARO® Advantage Chairs  
 

The RECARO® Advantage office chair embraces you. The rich detail and wide range of features is unmatched, period. The more you compare, the better it looks. The "Trademark feel" of the Advantage Line is the result of leading edge ergonomic engineering. Anatomically contoured cushions, premium components and a robotically welded steel frame infrastructure assure long service life. For thorough back support, the precision backrest adjustment is controlled by the Keiper recliner mechanism that is a patented design. The action is smooth and extremely robust. The AirMatic® adjustable lumbar support is one of the finest designs available today. Being an automotive design, the RECARO® Advantage Chairs are built to withstand the forces generated in a high speed rear-end collision. No other office chair manufacturers can make this claim.

RECARO® rates these executive chairs for 24-hour, intensive use applications. For those of you seeking heavy duty chairs, the Advantage Line Office Chairs are suitable for persons up to 350 lbs. The wide seat cushions feature LiquiCell® technology. This innovative combination of a low viscosity fluid and strategically placed seal points control the flow of liquid, LiquiCell® thus reducing discomfort associated with prolonged sitting.

LiquiCell® equalizes perpendicular pressure at the point of contact (thus reducing pressure); soft tissue compression is greatly reduced thereby significantly reducing skin friction and soft tissue shear stress (micro-tears). This is why you are squirming around in your chair by the end of a long day.
Medical and scientific evidence proves that while gels, foams and air do provide some relief of discomfort through perpendicular pressure reduction, they do not protect you against the harmful effects of friction and shear stress, two of the most influential factors related to discomfort, pain and trauma (pressure sores).

As we stated earlier, the rich detail and wide range of features is unmatched. For those of you that demand or require the best in Office Chairs, the RECARO® Advantage is unmatched.

The RECARO® Intensive use chairs are based on the same designs used in the heavy equipment and commercial bus markets. We have integrated the durability of commercial seating with the ergonomic technology and comfort features from models found in the world's finest automobiles including Aston Martin, Audi, Lamborghini, Mercedes Benz and Porsche. RECARO's® designers and engineers worked closely with their counterparts of these premier automotive companies through the design, engineering and product development process.

The first thing you will notice when seated in a RECARO® 24 hour chair is how you are held in place. This is the trademark RECARO® feel. Supporting the natural S-curve of your back is key to long term seating comfort and a keyfunction of these 24 hour chairs. The patented recliner mechanism allows the backrest to recline up to 25º. This combined with the tilt mechanism allows for a full 45º of recline for total relaxation if you so desire.The feel of a RECARO® chair is unique and supports you like no other brand in the world. Many manufacturers attempt to copy the RECARO® look but never manage to duplicate the quality or feel.

The rigid steel frame structure of a RECARO® chair is designed for strength and long service life. Robotic welding assures you of long term reliability. For thorough back support, the precision backrest adjustment is controlled by the Keiper recliner mechanism that is a patented design. The action is smooth and extremely robust. Your lower back is comforted by the Airmatic® triple chamber, self-equalizing, inflatable lumbar support. Automotive grade leather hides are optically scanned for surface imperfections. Once the imperfect areas are identified, the Gerber computerized cutter is programmed to cut around them. Premium automotive grade leathers are far superior to furniture grade leathers. They are more durable and treated to resist UV rays. The hides are impeccably stitched for well defined contours and outstanding finish quality.

The mirror finish, 5-star cast aluminum base is manufactured by the same company that manufactures aluminum components for Harley-Davidson®. It is rated for 24 hour intensive use. The 29" diameter is the largest that is commercially available.

The mounting bracket that secures the tilt mechanism to the chair is manufactured from 7 gauge cold rolled steel. It is precision laser cut to .0001". It then goes through a 3 stage wash process and finally a baked on powder-coat finish is applied. The heavy duty knee tilt mechanism features self lubricating bearings and has been extensively tested for durability and long life.

Heavy duty armrest support tubes are constructed of 16 gauge, mirror polished 304 stainless steel. The comfortable armrest pads are made of skinned foam for durability and comfort. The height adjustment range is 3.5". The armrests will also adjust for width in a 2" range.

No two individuals are built the same. This is an important consideration in seat design and development. Different body proportions as well as restricted movement can lead to muscle damage. This is primarily the case when sitting for hours is required.

The TITAN, Executive and Commander 24 hour chairs feature LiquiCell® technology. This innovative combination of a low viscosity fluid and strategically placed seal points control the flow of liquid, LiquiCell® thus reducing discomfort associated with prolonged sitting. LiquiCell® equalizes perpendicular pressure at the point of contact (thus reducing pressure); soft tissue compression is greatly reduced thereby significantly reducing skin friction and soft tissue shear stress (micro-tears). This is why you are squirming around in your chair by the end of a long day.

Further damage is caused by incorrect sitting positions and without compensating movement. To reduce detrimental influence on the muscle tissue, an office chair must adapt to the body and its proportions not vice versa. RECARO® Advantage 24/7 office chairs offer a very special level of comfort, which is why you sit in the correct ergonomic position and sit comfortably at the same time.

  • Solid metal structures assure that seats maintain long term shape and optimize support for cushions.
  • Closed back structure and tight upholstery in combination with an extra-high backrest. This revolutionary design is the foundation of the trademark RECARO® feel. Many manufacturers use steel tube frames with a 'wire nets' to support cushions. This is a low cost option that is not used by RECARO®.
  • Distinctive side support of the backrest provided by adjustable backrest side bolsters. These features allow the body to maintain a position that is both upright and relaxed while holding you back in a natural S-curve.
  • RECARO® airmatic system (air chambers which are situated in the lower part of the backrest can be individually pumped up), height and tilt adjustment, adjustable shoulder support
  • Seat cushion length adjustment , 2.5" (Sport, Style and Trend).
    This feature is key to avoiding fatigue.
  • Large variety of standard colors and materials, customized covers also offered.

Master saddler Wilhelm Reutter established his car factory in Stuttgart in 1906. The company made a name for itself as a manufacturer of high-quality assemblies for customers including Adler, Ansaldo, BMW, Bugatti, Maybach and others. From 1948 until 1963 the company produced the complete line of car bodies for Porsche. In 1963 the production group of car bodies was purchased by Porsche. RECARO® (an acronym of REutter and CAROsserien - German for auto bodies) was born and began producing the full line of seats for Porsche. Concurrently.
