HEATHROW 24/7 Range
The SABS – CERTIFIED HEATHROW 24/7 Chair is based on Karo’s highly successful OMEGA Range of executive and managerial office chairs.
A control room or call centre requires a seating solution that exceeds all standards commonly associated with task chairs used in a conventional office environment. The HEATHROW 24/7 was specifically designed by Karo to meet the highly demanding 24 hour, 7 days a week work environment. Quite simply, all the components used in the HEATHROW 24/7 have been designed to out-perform and out-last any conventional task chair, and this has been achieved without a compromise in style or ergonomics.
Karo’s HEATHROW 24/7 chair has built up an enviable track record over many years with installations in control rooms and call centres throughout Southern Africa.

All HEATHROW 24/7 chairs are supplied standard with a Gas height adjustment. This allows the user to quickly and easily adjust the height of the chair to ensure an ergonomically correct sitting posture. In line with the robust design of this range, the gas height adjustment on the HEATHROW 24/7 has a CLASS 4 (heavy duty) certification which Karo imports directly specifically for this chair range.Control room/call centre chairs need to be manoeuvrable in order to position the chair correctly in front of the desk or work station.
