Ergonomic Standards for Commercial Chairs

Choosing furniture for your business doesn’t follow a cookie cutter approach. Other than protecting employees from strains that affect their productivity, furniture that’s compliant with existing ergonomic standards also keeps customers happy. Here are some industry guidelines when it comes to chairs.

Restaurant Chairs

Customers go to restaurants not only to eat, but also to relax. The seat contributes to the eating experience, too. The chair should not only be stylish, but should also have appropriate lumbar support to accommodate the body’s natural movements, especially when it comes to socializing. Keep this in mind when buying such commercial chairs.

Waiting Room Chairs

Whether it’s at a clinic, a salon, or a government office, your aim is to make sure that customers are comfortable while waiting, or they will complain and divert their attention to your business’s service flow. Waiting room chairs should be as large as sofas and be big enough for leaning. The back should be upholstered, and the fabric should be resistant to allergens.

Hotel Chairs

Choosing commercial chairs for hotels follows the same principle as choosing chairs for waiting rooms. They should be stylish and use allergen-resistant fabric due to the sheer number of guests that’ll use them.

Many chairs on the market can’t cater to different body types of customers across a broad range of industries. Choosing chairs can be difficult at first, but if you know your market and your industry’s ergonomic standards well, you’ll find the right fit.
