You know you need something different to an office chair……

You know you need something different to an office chair when….

It’s all Greek to you! ESD, static safe, airborne particle count, clean room classification; are we speaking a different language?

If it is all Greek to you ( or make that Chinese if your Greek is fluent!) then Techsit can help translate those potential orders.

Now and again your customers will require a more technical spec for the seating in their production / lab / G.M.P etc environments.  A spec that isn’t met by the office chairs that are suitable for, well, their office environments. Techsit specialises in technical work seating from G.M.P clean rooms through to Aerospace production and all in between.

 

So what is the working environment?

  • laboratory or medical facilities – you probably need anti-microbial and bleach cleanable finish. Lab benches tend to be higher than desks so a high chair is also likely, glides or brake-loaded castors?
  • clean room manufacturing or research – what classification of clean room is it; 3,5 or 7? Roughly translated the lower the class the lower the allowable level of particulates/m³ of air and the right, or wrong, chair quickly contributes to the levels achieved.
  • G.M.P manufacturing – may require clean room standard seating plus covered mechs and easily cleanable finish.
  • static-sensitive production – will require ESD and anti-static seating. The static charge produced by the average human can easily blow any micro-chip circuitry which is not a good thing when producing, for example, aeronautical components or weapons guidance systems!  Electro-static-dispersive seating neutralises this risk within a static safe environment.
  • tough production environments – use PU for robust durability combines with comfort. Plus of course die-cast aluminium bases and quality gas lifts to take the beating these chairs may take on multi-shift production sites. Sit-stand or stool for ease of operator movement?
  • wet room environments – you will need stainless steel not chrome to cope with the cleaning routine!

 

Reading this article you would expect that Techsit seating provides the technical specs to fulfil the above criteria, but, what you might not expect, it also provides what you would want from a quality office chair: ergonomic design, adjustabilty, comfort, excellent build standard. Techsit seating is created on a modular concept so that the chairs are tailored for individual and environment best fit. You will certainly recognise the language of  synchro-mechs  / auto-weight tension-able / brake-loaded / 3-D adjustable etc etc that still applies as much to our technical seating as your office chairs!

The perfect chair for Infant school teachers

The perfect chair for Infant school teachers

By Emily Cooper Posture People on 21st June, 2016 in Health & Safety Advice

We are always scouting out niche new products to fix the issues that people are having with their workspaces. Recently we were introduced to the Kiga chair, a revolutionary chair that is perfect for infant school teachers. This role in particular calls for a lot of crouching down to the level of the children, or in some cases sitting on child sized furniture. Sitting this low, causes the knees to come above the hip and create an unnatural slump, or curvature of the spine; synonymous with causing back pain. The Kiga chair is designed especially to those who work at a lower than desk height level with its shorter gas stem and supportive chest plate to lean against. This chair can be used either way round to either use as a support or a normal chair to sit at your desk comfortably. Curious to see how this chair worked in practise, we decided to try it out in a local school and get some feedback from the teachers themselves!

What age range do you teach?

Reception 4-5 year olds

What was wrong with the previous set up?

It was a very low traditional ‘old skool’ upholstered teacher’s chair. Not suitable to work at the computer on my desk or portable to the tables were the children are learning.

Did you spend any money before on outside support e.g. physio or chiropractor fees

Yes weekly physio sessions for the last 18 months

What are the benefits of your new set up vs. your old set up?

The Kiga chair has completely revolutionised my teaching practise. The fact that I can adjust the height of the chair to suit my very different working needs is fantastic. I can now work at the computer comfortably or lower the chair to fit the small tables when I am teaching alongside the children in my class. I had a real problem bending over the tables to teach individual children but due to the genius of the Kiga chair’s reversible back rest I can lean forward to support my back. The difference it has made is amazing. The specific localised pain I was experiencing has disappeared and this largely due to the fact that I can straddle the chair and lean forward comfortably. This means that my back is in alignment and not being compromised. Thank you so much.

What would you like to change about the Kiga chair?

Nothing

Would you recommend the Kiga chair to a friend?

Absolutely and I have
