How to Select a Seating Inc. Chair…

Choose Your Style

Consider the size of the people who will be seated and the work environment.
Seating Inc. chairs are organized into three categories

275 Every Day
for single users up to 8 hours per day, 300 lb. weight capacity

350 Intensive Use
for multiple users, intensive and/or heavy duty applications, 350 lb. weight capacity

550 Generous Fit
for single of multi-shift use, 550 lb. weight capacity (not suitable for smaller users)

Determine the Category

Each chair series has a distinctive "look" with comfort and construction features common to all styles and models.
Choose from the following:

Sensible Solutions - Advent and EDU
Functional Solutions - Contour and Muse
Complete Solutions - Monterey and Pearl II
Mesh Solutions - Grid and Jay
Executive Solutions - Saddle and Tradition
Specialty Solutions - Indy and Health
Nesting chairs - Jay

Choose a Series

From Advent to Tradition, our chair series have coordinating executive, task, stool, sled, and multipurpose stackable styles. Consider the type of work that the user is performing and his or her level of authority.
Choose high, medium or small back models.

Decide on a Model

Mechanisms determine what a chair can "do" - from simple swivel to advanced synchro tilt. Increased functionality adds ergonomic benefits and increases the price of the chair. Consider the number of people who will use the chair, the amount of time they will be sitting, and the type of work being performed. Purchase the mechanism with functions that work for your application...and make sure that each user knows how to take advantage of the benefits that you supply

Choose a Mechanism

All Seating Inc. chairs - except those with arms that are premanently attached to the frame - are priced without arms.
Arm choices range from basic fixed height arms with urethane pads to fully upholstered executive style arms.
Specialty arm options include width adjustment brackets and pads for extra comfort or durability.

Select Your Textile

Upgraded foam increases comfort for users who are seated for long periods of time. A wide seat accommodates holsters or utility belts. CAL 133 meets fire safety regulations. Multiple options and upgrades are available to satisfy individual requirements.
