Have you ever taken the time to learn the different parts of an office chair? The answer, for most people, is probably ‘no’. But, knowing the different parts can be more important than you might think. When you understand how executive chairs, like the ones from Autonomous, are built, you will know how to make them work properly, and fix them if anything ever goes wrong.
With that in mind, let’s look at the essential parts of an executive office chair and the function of each one.
- Office chair base – It’s function is to provide stability and balance to the chair itself. It is also often used for movement, so you can wheel around from place to place within your office quickly.
- Mechanism – The main function of the office chair mechanism is to adjust the height and angles of the chair.
- Seat pan – Seat pans help to provide comfort and many offer an ergonomic design that helps with posture.
- Chair cylinder – The main function of a chair cylinder is to connect the base to the seat pan, while offering the ability to adjust the chair height.
- Armrests – They help to keep your arms supported while you’re resting or working.
- Lumbar support system – If you’re sitting for a long period of time, the lumbar support system can reduce the risk of back pain and support your spine.
- Headrest – The headrest is designed to reduce tension in your neck and spine, and support your head while you’re sitting.
- Backrest – Designed to support the spine.
- Casters/wheels – These allow your chair to move swiftly across the floor without you having to get up.
Understanding these parts will make it easier to know what’s important to you as you look for the perfect executive office chair for home or work.
