Macho huh? Choosing a Big and Tall Office Chair July 02 2014

Did you know that most of the chairs for offices are built keeping in mind individuals whose body weight is less than 250 pounds? Also the average height taken into consideration when designing such chairs is between 5 feet 4 inches and 5 feet 10 inches. So what happens to those people who are taller or weigh slightly more than the average individual? Well, there is no need to worry as several companies today understand the specific needs of every individual and design chairs accordingly.

When you select a big and tall chair, you must examine it for specific features that allow for adjustments to be made before you make the final purchase. A ‘seat slider’ is one of the most important features to look for in an office chair. With the help of this feature, the depth of your big and tall office chair can be adjusted easily. This gives you the option to increase the length of the chair by simply pulling the chair seat out. It is particularly beneficial for those people who are extremely tall and require additional seat support for their thighs.

You also need to check for measurements when purchasing big and tall office chairs, especially the seat depth. While the standard depth of an office chair’s seat is around 19″, a taller person would usually require a seat depth of around 21″ along with a slider fitted into the seat for further adjustments, as may be necessary.
