To ensure that all of our customers, and your employees, have the most comfortable seating options possible. So, since people come in all shapes and sizes, the chairs do too.


What Are Big and Tall Chairs?

Big and tall executive chairs are designed for people who are more than 250 pounds or taller than 6 foot 4. You may also hear these chairs referred to as “big man chairs.” To accommodate users, tall chairs will have high backrests and usually have a slightly higher seat height adjustment range compared to standard office chairs. Chairs for users more than 250 pounds will often be wider and feature thicker padding. All big and tall chairs feature more durable bases, casters and frames.  If you select a chair with armrests, they will most likely be oversized and reinforced for the added weight that will be placed on them.


How Should I Choose My Big and Tall Executive Chair?

The first thing you will want to consider is the weight rating you will need for your chair. We feature chairs with weight ratings of 350, 400 and 500+ pounds. You will want to make sure you choose chairs that will be adequate for anyone who may be using them.


Note: Not all chairs will necessarily be rated for longer usage because they have higher weight limits.


After determining the weight rating for your chairs, you will want to take a look at the functions of each chair and figure out what you may need. These functions include:


  1. Seat Height Adjustment:

Easily adjust your office chair according to your height and the height of the desk you will be using. You will want to adjust your seat so your feet are flat on the ground and your knees are bent at 90 degrees. You also want to be at a height that allows your elbows to be bent at 90 degrees when typing.


  1. Seat Depth Adjustment:

You can adjust the depth of your seat to accommodate your upper leg length, which comes in handy when people of different heights will be using the same chair. You want the edge of the seat to be just behind your knees when you are seated in the appropriate position.


  1. Seat Angle Adjustment:

To ensure proper posture and adequate blood flow to your legs and feet you can adjust the angle of your seat. Adjusting the angle can also lighten the pressure on your lower back.


  1. Back Height Adjustment:

Adjusting the back of your chair, including the head rest and lumbar support, will allow you to sit in the most comfortable position for your neck and lower back.


  1. Back Angle Adjustment:

You can ensure the lumbar support rests comfortably on your back by adjusting the angle of your chair back.


  1. Tilt Lock:

Lock your chair into the tilt position that provides you the greatest comfort.


  1. Tension Control:

Increase or decrease the resistance of the chair’s tilt by using the tension control.


Once you determine the weight rating and functions for your new chairs, you will need to decide which upholstery will work best for your office setting; fabric, vinyl, anti-microbial/anti-bacterial vinyl, or leather. Depending on the chair you choose, there may also be multiple colors for you to pick from, making it easy to fit in with the style and feel of your office.


Final Thoughts

As with any office furniture you want to make sure you are choosing the pieces you think will work best in your environment. By purchasing big and tall seating you are ensuring comfort for all of your guests and employees and setting them up for success through their seating.
