What to Look for in a Multi-shift Chair

400 lb capacity multi-shift chair

Not too long ago, every one of your employees had their own space to work. Now, many businesses operate 24 hours a day. In an environment like this, giving each employee their own desk and chair is an unnecessary waste of resources. That’s why many offices are opting for multi-shift chairs that different employees will use during their shifts.

Multi-shift chairs need to outperform their single-shift counterparts. When you’re choosing a chair that multiple people will use, it’s important to look for a few characteristics:

1. High Weight Capacity 

People come in different shapes and sizes. A multi-shift chair should be able to accommodate people of any size. Look for a weight capacity of at least 350 pounds to make sure you can cover all of your employees.

2. Tall Backrest

Many people who sit for long periods at work complain of back pain after their shift. A full backrest with an adjustable headrest and lumbar support can help your employees feel less fatigued and more productive.

3. Maximum Adjustability

If you want a chair to accommodate different people, it may need a lot of adjustments. A quality multi-shift should have adjustments for armrest height, lumbar position, seat angle, and seat height, at the least. Having more adjustment options means the chair can accommodate more people.

4. Heavy-Duty Construction

A multi-shift chair should be able to take a lot of abuse. If you want it to last, it needs to be built well. You could save some money by buying a less expensive chair, but you will probably have to replace it sooner than you like.

5. Stain-Resistant, Breathable Upholstery

Some people are concerned about cleanliness—others less so. Because your multi-shift chair will get so much use, look for a stain-resistant, breathable material that’s easy to clean. Many chairs are also made with antimicrobial materials to help the environment stay sanitary.
