We can (and do!) upholster our chairs in a huge variety of fabric, vinyl or leather upholstery. If none of our standard ranges match your requirements, then simply supply your own material and we will upholster your chairs with it.

Should you order customised chairs, there will be a manufacturing lead time associated with your purchase. Depending on the availability of the upholstery material, our manufacturing lead time is typically 3-4 weeks.

3. Factors to consider before buying an office chair

There are a huge number and variety of office chairs for sale in South Africa. In as much as they all look different, they all look the same. Selecting the right product can be both confusing and time consuming. Making the wrong choice can be expensive and may be detrimental to your long-term health. The 5 consequences of sitting on the wrong office chair.

Before buying a new chair, you should consider the following:

  • Do you have any pre-existing health (musculoskeletal) problems, specifically related to the spine? If so, an orthopaedic or a kneeling chair may be the best option for you.
  • The weight rating of the chair. Chair components are designed with a specific weight rating, for example 120 or 150kg.
  • The task that you must perform. This is essential as chairs are designed for specific applications. For example, chairs that are used in a 24/7 call-centre are quite different to those used in a medical laboratory or casino, so select a chair that matches the task that you perform. To simplify the process for you, on our website in the “products” section, we have categorised the office chairs that we have for sale.
  • The number of hours you sit at your workstation each day. If you spend more than 6 hours a day sitting at your desk, you should consider buying an ergonomic chair that has more features and greater adjustability. Alternatively, if you only use the chair for an hour each day, then a less expensive chair with fewer options might be a better choice. To assist you in your choice each office chair has an ergonomic rating.
  • Do you need an Executive or Task chair? What is an executive office chair?
  • Understand the correct height settings for your chair and workstation.


4. Ergonomic or Orthopaedic office chairs?

Is there a difference between ergonomic and orthopaedic office chairs? Yes, there is.

Unfortunately, many suppliers use these terms interchangeably when selling their ranges of office chairs. All orthopaedic office chairs are also ergonomic chairs, but ergonomic chairs are not necessarily orthopaedic chairs. What is the difference between orthopaedic and ergonomic office chairs?
