What Is A Laboratory Stool Or Chair?
Laboratory stools and chairs are designed for use in active work environments, facilitating movement, while providing a strong base from which to work. These chairs can be upholstered in robust, wipeable fabric, making them hard-wearing and hygienic.
Laboratory stools and chairs tend to have a smaller footprint than typical office chairs, meaning they do not dominate the available space. This makes them a great choice for busy environments or when a chair is not needed 100% of the time.
Why Buy A Laboratory Stool Or Chair?
Ergonomics are no less important in a laboratory than in any other work environment. In fact, due to the active nature of laboratories, there is a case to say they are even more important, to avoid injury and enable people to work at their best.
Hygiene and hard-wearing characteristics may well be needed in the laboratory, but these do not need to come in the form of unforgiving wooden or plastic furniture. Our laboratory seating either comes with robust, cleanable fabric as standard or via an optional extra.
Depending on the specification, laboratory seating can also allow you to sit much higher than standard chairs, which makes them ideal for use with benches and higher work surfaces.
