Office Chairs
It isn't easy sitting in an office all day...unless you are in an ergonomic chair from Hertz Furniture. What is an ergonomic chair? Ergonomic chairs are computer chairs that have multiple adjustments for a custom fit. We have hundreds of office chairs in all sizes, colors, and types which makes Hertz the place for one-stop office shopping.

Glide to your desk on ergonomically-designed swivel chairs, conduct meetings in executive office chairs, invite staff members to use leather conference chairs, and seat your clients on comfortable guest chairs. Now you can sit back, relax, and enjoy your office.

Hard-working employees and executives deserve to sit in comfortable office chairs. Comfort begins with great padding and contours, and it doesn't end when the five o'clock whistle blows. Ergonomic office chairs will serve you well long after you have left your place of employment.

Why should I buy an ergonomic office chair?

If one sits in an uncomfortable or inappropriately-adjusted office chair, they can experience back and knee pain, both in and out of the office. However, when you sit properly throughout the workday, you avoid the back, neck and knee problems that plague so many professionals. Seating which promotes correct posture also increases productivity and minimizes the distractions of aches and pains. The less one is distracted by back and knee pain, the more one can accomplish throughout the workday and beyond. Everyone deserves go home without physical pain at the end of long workdays, whether you are a company president, school principal or administrative assistant.

What makes a chair ergonomic?

There are a few different design elements that characterize a swivel chair as ergonomic. It should have an adjustable backrest, tilt and arms. This will enable professionals to set the back and armrest at the perfect height for their bodies. Because every person is built differently, ideal back and arm heights vary. Pneumatic height adjustment is critical as well. Together with an adjustable tilt angle, it enables one to modify task chair proportions so feet are planted flat on the ground and knees are at the appropriate angle.

Do I need a chair with lumbar support?

In addition to the previously mentioned ergonomic design elements, some believe that contoured lumbar support is critical for supporting the lower back and avoiding muscle pain. Great lumbar support is provided by a contoured extrusion that lends support to your natural spine curve. It is particularly beneficial for those who spend many hours working at a computer. Seats with good lumbar support keep the back properly aligned, which prevents muscle stress and lower-back injuries. However, while some believe this chair design element is essential, others say that a more basic design provides greater comfort and support.

What kinds of office chairs are there?

Office chair design has many variations so it's a good idea to familiarize yourself with the options before you make a purchase for your school principal's office or reception area. One element that varies is whether there are armrests or not. While you might think that armrests are always preferable, there are quite a few benefits to armless task chairs. If you have a low desk upon which you generally rest your elbows, or a pullout keyboard tray, the armless option is a great choice. A keyboard tray serves the same ergonomic function as armrests, so if your desk has one, you can purchase an armless model without having to compromise on comfort or health. Swivel chairs without arms also save money and won't get in the way when you want to stand up and move around. You don't necessarily have to purchase a model that is designated as armless to enjoy the benefits of this design feature. Most task chairs have removable armrests which allow you to transform any model into an armless one.

Office chair upholstery comes in a variety of colors and materials. Fabric-upholstered seating enables you to add color and style to your work space, and often features cushy foam padding. Alternatively, mesh seating options are more breathable and flexible. They allow maximum air circulation and prevent you from getting hot and sweaty. Leather office chairs will give any workplace a luxurious professional appeal. The classic design of dark leather projects a high-class image that is sure to impress clients. If you are on a tight budget but like the look of leather upholstery, vinyl is a more budget-friendly alternative. Dark vinyl creates the visual appeal of leather at a significant price reduction. Vinyl office chairs are great money savers, and are very easy to clean.

There are many benefits to purchasing a mobile office chair. Rolling casters make it easy to slide from one side of a U-desk to the other, or roll back and reach auxiliary storage in nearby file cabinets, bookshelves or credenzas. When you are not seated, rolling casters simplify transport, whether you are moving chairs into storage or relocating to a new space. However, if you are planning on remaining seated in one place, you may choose a stationary seating option. For those who remain in one position throughout the workday, models without casters eliminate the inconvenience of chairs that slide around and move unintentionally.

With so many design features and style variations, make sure to select the executive office chair that appeals to you. Choose a luxurious style to enhance your personal workspace or a modern office chair to update your school office. You can even coordinate office chair upholstery to match the color scheme in your workspace. The right executive chair will exude professionalism and confidence, projecting dependability, reliability and consistency.

Choosing the right office chair is simply a matter of exploring all of the options and deciding which features appeal to you. There are high-quality task chairs to suit any budget. Swivel chairs with casters are versatile, convenient and available in a range of prices. When you purchase an office chair from Hertz Furniture, you get the benefits of low prices as well as a complementary extended warranty.

Classroom work spaces can be supplied by activity tables or school desks. Activity tables are appropriate for children from preschool through elementary school. Academia school tables come in a number of sizes, styles and shapes. No matter what shape you choose, Educational Edge tables offer a great way to add a splash of color to a learning space. They will make any classroom more lively and inviting.

School desks aren't what they used to be. Although the classic four legged design with a book-box underneath the work surface is still available, Academia brings you a number of viable alternatives that are suited to the modern classroom. Their exclusive WoodStone desktops have the durability of hard plastic, yet they cost and weigh significantly less. For maximum strength and versatility, models are available with adjustable-height and U-braces for reinforcement.

Student chair desks should be considered when purchasing classroom furniture. They come in the same durable materials as school desks, but with the added convenience of attached seating. When a classroom is full of combo desks, teachers can be sure that students won't lean back in their chairs, and there are always enough chairs to match desks. Combo desks also guarantee that chair and desk heights match up.

For those who opt not to furnish a classroom with chair desks, school seating must be purchased so students have a place to sit in class. Academia offers some tough classic poly shell and hard plastic models as well as attractive new designs from the Inspiration Series. These sleek school chairs come in vibrant colors and feature 17 reinforcement ridges for a durable, flexible and supportive design.

Even your youngest learners deserve to learn in an environment with appropriately-sized school furniture. Academia activity tables and school chairs come in any height that you need, so you can have first-rate preschool furniture as well. When young learners have school chairs and activity tables that are just the right size, it is easier for them to develop proper posture and skills.

While the classroom is where students spend the bulk of their time at school, there are a number of other rooms that also require appropriate furniture. Whether they are learning how to utilize technology for educational purposes or harness their musical talents, your pupils need furniture that supports their endeavors. With the right pieces, you can channel the hard work of children and young adults toward future successes.

Computers are becoming increasingly important in the educational environment. Some functional computer tables can help support technology in the classroom, or furnish a contemporary computer lab. In order to ensure that your setup promotes ergonomic positioning, some appropriate computer chairs are necessary as well. With the right computer furniture, students can learn how to type correctly and hone their online research skills.

When furnishing a music room or band room, regular tables and chairs just won't cut it. Music furniture is specially designed to help student musicians play in a healthy position so they will learn how to hold their instruments and breathe correctly from the beginning. Academia's musician chairs support students as they play, whether in practices or performances.

Another room that requires special furniture is the science lab. Having appropriate lab furniture ensures the safety of students and teaches proper experimentation techniques. Academia offers a number of excellent lab stools that enable students to sit comfortably as they take notes or experiment at counter-height surfaces.

Creating an environment that is conducive to education and growth begins with appropriate layouts for learning.
