Type of Task Chairs
Before you choose your task chair, you need to think about how you will be using it. Are you sitting at a desk on a computer all day, or working with a team in a more collaborative setting, or are you on calls all day, leaning back in your chair? These patterns will determine whether you are looking for a low-back task chair, a mid-back task chair, or a high-back task chair. Do you need a fully upholstered seat and back (commercial-grade fabric, vinyl, or leather), a mesh back and upholstered seat, or a fully mesh chair? Most task chairs have a metal, five-star base that provides sturdy support and is stable with dual-wheel casters for hard floors or carpeted floors.
Task Chair Options
A good-quality task chair is versatile. Versatile task chairs are available with a variety of options to ensure that the chair you pick is comfortable. All of these options can be overwhelming, but Joyce Contract Interiors can help you find the right features for you.
Some common features are:
- Synchronized tilt, which adjusts the tilt tension and the back/seat at the same time
- Multi-tilter, providing forward and rearward tilt for mobility.
- Pneumatic seat-height adjustment, enabling the seat to be raised or lowered depending on your height so that your feet are flat on the floor at all times, without any gaps
- Ratchet back adjustment lets the seat back be adjusted to various heights for maximum comfort
- Adjustable arms can either be height-adjustable and/or width-adjustable and with or without sliding armrests
- Swivel tilt allows you to swivel in both directions, left or right, as well as tilt back
- Seat sliders adjust the length of the seat to accommodate various leg lengths
- Lumbar support is offered through a thick pad that sits at the base of the backrest and conforms to the curve in your spine
