The Top 3 Reasons Why 24/7 Seating is Best for Security and Surveillance
Security and surveillance personnel must stay sharp and focused on the job while spending long hours seated in a chair. Why settle for an office chair that can’t withstand all the constant, rigorous use it’ll be put through? There’s no need to, because Concept Seating’s 24/7 chairs are specifically designed for extended periods of sitting. This means they’ll last the test of time and provide support to help you stay alert on the job.
But what exactly makes a Concept Seating chair different from a standard office chair? What are the benefits that come from a 24/7 intensive-use chair? To help answer these questions, here’s a look at the similarities and differences between Concept Seating and normal office chairs:
MORE RIGOROUS GOVERNMENT TESTING STANDARDS
The biggest factor that sets a 24/7 intensive-use chair apart is its rigorous testing. To be officially categorized as an intensive-use chair, the product must undergo thorough evaluation, some of which includes cyclic stepped loads. Essentially, chairs are put through repeated motions using increasing weight-loads until the part being tested fails. The number of times the motion is repeated before failure must surpass specific targets to earn the certification. There are tests evaluating back loads, back tilts, vertical loads on one or both arms, load tests on seats, load tests on bases, fatigue tests of swivel bearings and more. Only chairs passing all these tests are considered acceptable for intensive use environments.
No normal office chairs comply with these standards. Concept Seating tests to ANSI/BIFMA and FNEW 269-83E (U.S.) standards and but FIRA 055-2009 (U.K.) certifications which requires 350 lbs on each armrest.
DESIGNED FOR EXTENDED SITTING
One of the biggest selling points for a 24/7 chair is that it’s ideal for workers who need to sit for long periods. In workplaces that require long hours — from dispatch to casino management — having an intensive-use office chair is vital.
Concept Seating 24/7 chairs use an Ergo Air Suspension System (EAS2) that dissipates weight across the entire seat surface, minimizing pressure points in the lower extremities. The result is increased blood flow and oxygen levels to your tissues when compared with sitting on traditional foam. Combining proper posture and increased blood and oxygen flow can help improve energy levels and productivity, reduce stress, and help the nervous system, organs and tissues function well.
What’s also great about 24/7 chairs as compared to standard options is that they’re made to last. You aren’t replacing chairs every year due to wear and tear. Rather, you’re investing in long-term seating options on which you can rely. These intensive-use office chairs hold up to long hours on the job, high weight capacities and the ongoing abuse that comes from extended time in service. This makes them a good investment now and for the future. All Concept Seating chairs have a weight capacity of up to 550 lbs, except for our bariatric chair, which holds up to 800 lbs. All chairs include a 6-year comprehensive warranty and are modular in design so that if a problem does occur, your chair can be easily fixed.
If you want to improve your office environment with better seating, Concept Seating can help. Our 24/7 chairs are rigorously tested and have the certifications to prove it. This proven durability, combined with our innovative Ergo Air Suspension System and ergonomic adjustability make Concept Seating chairs the leading choice for intensive-use seating.
