Operator & Task Chairs

Operator Chairs are specifically designed for us at desks, with their option of adjustable arms and lumbar support offering the user the maximum adjustment to find their ideal seating position. Most of our chairs also come with adjustable seating height and backrests, along with armrests and back support. Operator chairs are designed in this format to help reduce the incidence of repetitive chair strain injury which can be caused through sitting at a computer/desk for extended periods of time. Current health and safety laws require that businesses provide operator chairs that can be adjusted to the users individual requirements.

Operator Chairs FAQs

What is the difference between n operator chair and a task chair?

Operator chairs are developed to provide support and comfort for an entire working day (between 6 or 8 hours) whereby a task chair is not intended to be used for an extended period of time (around 4 hours or more)

Why do operator chairs have wheels?

In 2020, the vast majority of operator chairs have 5 wheels, these wheels are designed to allow users to rotate and converse with colleagues whilst moving around their desk with relative ease. whilst Castor wheels also provide balance and comfort which allows users to stay comfortable for longer.

How often should an operator chair be replaced?

Operator chairs often remain in circulation beyond their life cycle and guarantee.  This can have an impact on comfort levels and create stress and strain on the body.  The average office chair used 40 hours per week should last at least as long as the guarantee period.  This of course depends on number of hours used per day and whether they are used within the recommended guidelines.  We suggest evaluating your operator chairs at the time of purchase to establish the guidelines for use and when they need to be reassessed.  Guidelines to be considered are: 

  • Recommended weight capacity.
  • Recommended hours of usage.
  • Environmental factors that may affect the lifespan of the chairs.
  • Manufacturers guarantee.

These assessments determine which chairs should remain in the workplace, be repaired under guarantee or replaced as a result of wear and tear.  If you are ready to replace your operator chairs, we have a solution to fit every application and budget.

At Office Furniture Online, we stock an extensive range of operator chairs to suit all business needs. Whether you’re looking for a classic black chair or a colour to suit your workspace, we have you covered, shop the full collection with free UK mainland delivery on all orders.
