Office Guest Chairs – Office Furniture Dubai
If you're in a situation in which you're frequently having visitors in your office, you'll probably want to have one or more office guest chairs on hand in order to accommodate your visitors more easily, avoid having time wasted on moving chairs back and forth around the office furniture, and generally create a good impression. Choosing the right office chairs is more than just a matter of picking the first or cheapest thing you come across, though. Here are some of the things you might want to think about before starting your search for the right office chairs. Office guest chairs: What are they? In a sense you could say that any old chair you put in your office with the intention of having it used by guests is an office chair, but those that are actually marketed as such tend to conform to certain basic guidelines. For one thing, office chairs are rarely as elaborate or expensive as even relatively basic office chairs. They certainly aren't comparable to ergonomic office chairs or other specialized chairs. Most chairs have a basic, simple design, with thin legs and arms so as to minimize the mass of the chair and make for easy lifting and moving; they almost never have a central base or caster-based design. Exact materials can vary; although in more affordable office guest chairs metal or plastic joints are the norms, high-end guest chairs can feature luxury wood frames. What to look for Lightweight materials are an excellent feature to have in chairs. This is because, in all likelihood, you will need to move your guest chairs around at least occasionally, and lightweight materials make this easier. They're especially important if you know you'll be moving the chairs frequently, like lifting and moving chairs repeatedly can create additional strain and fatigue, which you probably have enough of in the average workday. For the seat and back of an office chair, durable, stain-proof materials are a good choice. Guest chairs don't need to have the enhanced comfort features of ergonomic chairs, but they should at least be built to last, and the fabric or material you choose makes a difference in this respect. Leather may be very comfortable and luxurious, but it's probably not the best choice for guest chairs because of how easy it can be to damage. For similar reasons, aluminum or steel frames may be better than wood from a value standpoint because they don't accumulate visible wear and tear as easily. What to avoid The main thing to avoid when choosing office guest chairs are a feature that unnecessarily impedes the movability of the chair. For example, some office chairs have a frame design in which the front and back legs are connected by a bar that runs along the floor. This can give the chair greater stability, but it can also make the chair more difficult to move, so in situations where you may be required to move the chair from time to time (for example, to make room for additional guests), this can be an inconvenient hindrance. Stackable chairs Stackable guest chairs can also be a great option if you frequently have multiple guests. The best stackable chairs are compact in stacked form and can be quickly stacked and unstacked.

Buying Office Furniture Can Be a Minefield - Quality Wins Over Price
There is so much to consider. Cost, space, quality, warranty, and delivery to name but a few. They are all very important in the general assessment procedure, but the most important criteria are often overlooked until it is too late. There are so many online office furniture companies with tabloid-like websites offering this office chair and that office desk for an amazing price or super quick delivery. It is sometimes very difficult to see the wood for the trees. Cheapest v Cost-Effective It is very easy to fall into the cheapest is the most cost-effective trap. Of course sometimes you can get very good quality office furniture at rock bottom prices, but ordinarily the cheap Chinese imports prove to be less than reliable and the one year guarantee is an air raid siren hint that you ignore at your peril. The better quality office chairs are offered with 5-year warranties or 2 years for heavy-duty 24-hour control room chairs. Lead times can pre-determine which supplier you opt for but more importantly it can drive the buyer down a precarious office furniture selection route, where availability outweighs all other factors. You have a new employee starting on Monday and you need an office chair, a desk, and a computer. Think about this for just a moment. Which of those three items will the buyer spend most time over selecting? Which of the three items will the buyer be given specifically more advice on which model to purchase? Which item is more important to suit the tasks that the new employee will have to undertake? Okay, we all know the answer; the computer. But which of the three original items will still be in that office in 5 years' time? Now that is an entirely different matter. We all know that selecting the right computer and software and giving your employee the right tools for the job is paramount for your business plan. A corporate buyer wouldn't bat an eyelid at buying a desktop PC, with software and network installed by a professional IT engineer for around AED15000-AED25000. Now in most corporate offices, computers are regularly upgraded and/or replaced say every two years as a matter of course. But how many buyers would consider upgrading their office furniture every two years. If the same care and selection thought processes are not applied to buying an office chair and a computer desk - to suit the new employee, then the company could well end up with an office chair that lasts barely a year and an office desk that is unsuitable and the employee can't even get his or her legs under because the drawer pedestal is on the wrong side. Where is all of this leading to you may ask? Well... Ergonomics my friend. Yes indeed, ergonomics is the new black magic in the office furniture environment. I won't try and explain what ergonomics is here. That is worth one or two articles on their own. Although, here is a very good description of ergonomics if you want to read further. Selecting office furniture is a far more difficult and trap-laden task these days. Posture and office seating go hand in hand. Space-age technologies developed for car seats are being applied to office chairs and the natural 'S' shape of the spine is being replicated in all manner of ergonomic office chairs. Modern ergonomic office chairs can be manipulated to suit any body shape and size, but that still does not mean that they are overly expensive. One customer said to me recently: "Ergonomic chairs are okay but I've been quoted AED 1200!" That may be the case. You can pay well over AED 1000 for an ergonomic office chair - but you don't have to. There are more economically viable options out there, with the very good build quality. What is your priority? The new employee should be considered first and foremost when specifying new office furniture. Their size and physical capabilities will determine not only the type of office chair you select but also the desk height, the hand of the desk (is the person left-handed?), and the height of the monitor. Something which is overlooked more often than not is the lighting. Space can often be at a premium in modern office environments and will often dictate the only place a new workstation can be located. Glare from lights can be a major factor in producing headaches and eye strain in computer users. Ideally, you should choose the best office furniture you can afford. This will give you the best long-term investment in your employee and office furniture in terms of your budget. And don't forget there are deals to be had out there so don't be afraid to ask for a discount. It is a very competitive market, but be sure you are comparing like for like with regards to quality. DSE (Display Screen Equipment) A professional DSE (Display Screen Equipment) assessor will be able to assist in selecting the correct ergonomic office chair and office desk, and advice on equipment placement, like monitor height and workstation position relative to lighting. An established online office furniture supplier should be able to provide a free DSE assessment, room layout drawing, and good quality, reasonably priced office furniture solution. Dearest doesn't always equate to best, but cheapest can land you right in the middle of that minefield.

How House Swapping Works?
House Swap is often not the first thing that comes to mind when someone thinks about going on vacation. But, If you're exploring vacation packages to popular tourist destinations such as New York and Paris that could cost you thousands of dollars for a hotel room or at least hundreds to book on Airbnb, it's time to check out cheaper alternatives. What if we say, your stay can be free? Yes, it's true with a house swap. It is a practice in which two parties agree to swap their accommodation without any cash exchange. Now, here how House Swapping works, and how to get started: - Step 1: Understand home swapping Today, there are so many platforms where you can sign up, create your house listing, find and swap homes across the globe. You can peruse listings of hundreds of home swappers worldwide. You can swap in one of the two ways: a direct, two-way exchange where you can swap your house for someone else’s. The other way being the one-way swap, where you live in someone's home, while your house is empty. Since no money exchanges, you can plan long vacations, even for months, knowing that your accommodation costs won't sky-rocket with each passing day. Step 2: List your home for the swap. Don't think you’re not eligible for a home swap if your house is not in a tourist hotspot or a picture-postcard chateau. People these days are exploring all kinds of destinations to escape the crowd and finding peacetime with family. Also, it is a no-brainer to highlight all the key points that make your house special, whether it’s the private swimming in the backyard, nearby hiking trails, lovely neighborhood, or proximity to public transportation. Be sure to upload pictures of your house, highlighting how spacious and comfortable it is compared to hotels. Step 3: Have a Clear Chat Once you come across someone ready for a vacation home swap with you, it is imperative to have a chat, either over the home swapping messenger or via Skype/ FaceTime. You can also ask them to provide a video tour of their house and ask all the questions that you might have. This will help you to ease all the anxieties with regards to exchanging each other's abodes. Step 4: Tell the neighbors Once the deal is locked, let the family next door know about your travel plans, so that they're not surprised seeing another family set foot in your house. This will help you keep a tab on your swapper and leave your fellow swapper with a local to count on for any need. Step 5: Be Smart with your Valuables Have a rare selection of porcelain dolls? First-edition of novels? Or expensive crockery? Don't hesitate to keep them in secure spots. Lastly, give them a warm welcome, just like you do if your sister or a close friend comes to visit your house. So, lay in supplies for your home swapper.
A Most Excellent Guide to Ergonomic Office Chairs
The best ergonomic office chairs surpass the minimum criteria specified by the safety regulations to contribute to the health and efficiency of the labor force. Garry Sherwood of Posture and Office Seating offers his opinion and guidelines for making the most favorable choice in ergonomic office chairs. · What are the main prerequisites for good ergonomic seating? · How do I identify ergonomic chairs that exceed the bare minimum health and safety requirements? The working population is spending ever more time sitting down both at home and in the workplace. A large amount of leisure time is spent on a soft chair watching television, reading or dining or lounging in the garden; travel means sitting in cars, buses, trains, or planes; and in the office, many workers sit for much of the time, and with the introduction of the all-electronic office, people perform more tasks in the same seat. Call centers and control rooms have employees sitting for extended hours sometimes working 12-hour shifts. All of this means there is a requirement for the stringent design and selection of good ergonomic chairs. Define good seating? Ergonomically correct and comfortable office seating should provide even bodily support for an assortment of postures over a long period of time. It should also be appropriate for the task at hand or activities to be performed by the person sitting on the chair. The main requirements for good seating are that: · Blood circulation in the thighs is not constrained; · The bodily posture requires very slight muscular effort to maintain; · The pressure on the spinal column is minimized; · Without discounting any of the above requirements, the design of the work environment, office furniture and task should promote a definite amount of movement and variation of posture. The best ergonomic office chair design is one that offers the best support and comfort for you in particular. Whilst all ergonomic office chairs are made to offer better shoulder, back, and neck support, there are accessories you can add to your choice of ergonomic chair design to ensure that it is the best fitting and suitable purchase you can make. Comfort The majority of people will know as soon as they sit in it, whether or not it is a certain ergonomic chair design that is going to be suitable for them to work in for long hours. A suitably designed ergonomic chair will match the curve of your spine and allow you to move your legs effortlessly. It will also permit a minimum of three finger-widths of space between the back of the knees and the seat edge and should have a comfortable seat and backrest cushion. Perforations in the pillow will allow for correct air circulation. Stability and Adjustability Quality ergonomic chairs will incorporate a vertically adjustable - via a gas lift - seat that permits you to lean back comfortably. The adjustment controls should be easy to use as well. The ergonomic chair that you choose should also offer plenty of adjustable lumbar support for your lumbar region or lower back, with either a winding mechanism or an air hand pump. It will also offer stability when the chair is being used but move sideways and rotate with ease. The better quality ergonomic chair will have adjustable cushioned armrests, which are both vertically and sideways adjustable so that they can be stowed out of the way. Back Rest and Seat The most important component of a superior ergonomic chair design is the backrest. The backrest should offer enough support to your lower to middle back, shoulders and should be height adjustable. It ideally should also easily move forward and back and lock at the best angle to suit your body shape. A quality ergonomic chair will include an air pump to mold the seat to your bottom, evening out the pressure on the buttocks, reducing discomfort. How does the task affect the choice of office chair? In the work environment, chairs should not be considered independently but in conjunction with the desk surface, because the chair should go well with both the height of the workstation and the body size of the user. The distance between the chair seat and work surface should be around 210-300mm, whilst maintaining a minimum170mm between the underside of the desk surface and the chair seat. Ergonomic and comfortable office seating design relies mainly on what task the person sitting in the chair will be doing. Generally, the work done in offices falls into two distinct categories: dedicated tasks or multi-task work. Multi-tasking work As the term suggests, multi-task work involves performing out a number of different tasks, and sometimes simultaneously. Multi-tasking employees generally move around a lot in their offices. They might be reading reference material, doing written work, using a computer, using a telephone, and accessing a number of devices on and around their workstation, and having meetings with colleagues. Multi-task work is almost perfect in an office environment because in ergonomics terms constant varying of tasks makes the body adopt different postures. Altering posture allows muscles to swap between tension and relaxation, and also allows the spinal discs to move on a regular basis, reducing the chances of stiffness or repetitive strain injuries. This also encourages increased blood flow and hence prevents any build-up of pressure on the buttocks, in the legs and backs. Consequently a multi-task office the chair should allow your body to move whilst maintaining good postural support, particularly for the lower back. Dedicated task type work Dedicated task work is normally extremely repetitive and requires the employee to sit in a somewhat fixed posture for extended periods of time. Such workers are basically desk-bound and normally carry out one type of task. An excellent example of this would be call center employees. As a task becomes more dedicated, the employee becomes more trapped at his desk. Dedicated task types of work invariably work certain muscles continuously (in order to keep the body in a certain posture). Sat in the same position for extended periods also reduces blood circulation to inadequate levels at which it becomes hard to eliminate the accumulated lactic acid during continuous working of the muscle. There is some documented clinical evidence that such physiological effects of dedicated task type work add to back problems among office employees. There is nothing worse than having an ergonomic office chair with multiple intricate controls that either user do not understand, do not use at all or adjust incorrectly. A complete user manual for the chair is required and should explain the various uses of the controls and illustrate how to achieve the best, appropriate and comfortable posture. When your ergonomic chair is delivered the user should be given in-house training to make sure they are familiar with the extended controls for each posture seat adjustment appropriate to their tasks. Office Chair Regulations - Everything you should know The Display Screen Equipment (DSE) regulations affect all of today's office employees. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) introduced them in 1992 to put into operation the European VDU the directive, and were revised in 2003 to include laptop computers, but includes no amendments regarding office chairs or desks. DSE regulations have numerous minimum requirements that all equipment, including office chairs and office desks must comply with. The schedule in the DSE regulations declare the following requirements for an office type chair in use at a DSE workstation: · The office chair shall be stable and permit the user freedom of movement and a comfortable posture. · The chair seat shall be adjustable in height. · The seat backrest shall be adjustable in both tilt and height. · A footrest shall be made available to any user that requires one. These are very broad-spectrum, but HSE's supplementary guidance document says: "The primary requirement here is that the work chair should allow users to achieve a comfortable position. The schedule requires the seat to be adjustable in height (i.e. relative to the ground) and the seatback to be adjustable in height (also relative to the ground) and tilt." The document goes on to say..."Provided the chair design meets these requirements and allows the user to achieve a comfortable posture, it is not necessary for the height or a tilt of the seatback to be adjustable independently of the seat. Automatic backrest adjustments are acceptable if they provide adequate back support." HSE guidance also states that the equipment (including chair and desk) that complies with the requirements of BS EN ISO 9241 will meet the requirements of the regulations. It also refers to dimensional and safety standards, which are listed below. Standards checklist · Ergonomic requirements as in BS EN ISO 9241 Part 5. · Safety requirements as in BS 5459 Part 2 (for people weighing up to 150kg and for up to 24 hours use) or BS EN 1335 Part 2 (for users weighing up to 110kg and only up to 8 hours use). · Dimensional requirements as in BS EN 1335 Part 1. · Flammability standard BS EN 1021-1 1994. Chairs meeting these standards will merely fulfill the minimum requirements of the regulations. Compliance with the above standards is only the starting point in the selection of a quality ergonomic office chair. So your journey to select an ergonomic office chair begins, search the online office furniture websites and sort out the wheat from the chaff. Do not be afraid to query the office chair standards or quote them to prospective suppliers. The majority of office chair suppliers will be only too glad to receive your query and will be more than happy to explain their wares when there is a chance of a sale.

Quality Reception Desks Are Unbeatable Front of House Furniture for Your Business
Reception Desks or reception counters should be attractive, comfortable, and timeless. It should give the company visitor a luxurious and relaxed feeling of importance. Office furnishing style plays an important role in the decision-making process taken by clients. So it figures that installation of quality contemporary reception desks benefits businesses. The ROI or return of investment can be many times the initial investment and serve a company well for many years to come. Positive feel The luxurious look and quality finish of the reception desk should impress first-time visitors. Attractive new reception desks work positively for the business and create that all-important first impression. Corporate Look Clients looking around your quality reception furniture and area will associate your style business with the same positive outlook. Day by day the trends in office furniture and reception desks are evolving, and you may want to consider blending various styles and materials, to give that unique corporate look that sets your business apart. Setting the right tone Whether you are a large corporate multinational company or a small to the medium-sized one you should go for reception furniture which is easy on the eye and functional - more about this later. Go for a quality build that will last and prove to be an asset. Reception furniture which is attractive and comfortable will relax your clients and make them more receptive to your company message whilst they browse through your literature and soak up the professional ambiance you have provided. Architectural Masterpiece The overall impression created by a dramatic building can only be maintained or improved upon with amazing reception furniture. That is not to say expensive, but the quality or, at least looking the part. If your building is not that awe-inspiring, then the least that you can do is improve the front end. Employees One important aspect of a reception desk is the height, and not just for your visitors but also employees. People obviously vary in height, but more importantly, some are less physically able. Care has to be taken in choosing a reception desk with varying height levels and space for a wheelchair. Some companies employ several receptionists, maybe on a part-time basis and could also have overnight security that uses the reception area as a control/monitoring room. Consideration in what type of reception desk to choose for various types of equipment and the various staff will need to carry out their everyday functions means that getting the correct reception desk is not cut and dried. You may find two types of office chair are required; a 24-hour chair for the security guard and maybe a task office chair for the person performing the general day-to-day office reception duties. It's a common mistake to think that the same chair will do for what could be two very different physically sized employees. Some large corporate organizations or health authority hospitals have several reception workers simultaneously occupying a large reception desk. Bespoke or off the shelf If you are a small company with the reception doubling up as your evening security area, some styles of smaller reception desks will cope with one or two flat-screen monitors. The larger the flat-screen monitors the better as some systems allow you to view several cameras on one screen. But it is difficult sometimes to find that mid-point between functionality and aesthetically pleasing reception furniture. If you are not sure, consider your employees and perform a DSE assessment or better still get in a professional DSE assessor from a company like Office Master. They will assess your employees and their work environment; advise on equipment like ergonomic office chairs, monitor arms, keyboard gel pads, and offer a free space design to compliment your reception area and if necessary design your reception desk. If you have many reception desk workers, they will all need computer chairs, monitors, keyboard pull-outs, drawers, filing cabinets, telephones. At least one position must be considered for wheelchair entry. Just one note of caution if you are ordering over the phone or directly from a website; make sure you have room to get the reception desk into the reception area. Most reception desks come modularized and have to be assembled on site.
