The design and warranty of most chairs are specified for a single-shift, 8-hour work day. Any application that may exceed these limits will either reduce or void the standard warranty offered by the manufacturer. The chairs offered in Ergo Depot's 24/7 intensive use category are ideal for emergency dispatchers and call center employees and are fully covered by the manufacturer's warranty for workdays that contain multiple shifts and alternating users.
Seating rated for intensive use has typically been heavily padded, bulky chairs that tend to swallow the user. These chairs are passed off as "ergonomic" and seem to promote relaxation throughout a shift rather than actually performing a task. Unfortunately, big pads do not equal ergonomic. In fact, this type of design can quickly lead to repetitive motion injuries and soreness associated with long-term sitting and poor posture. In addition to chairs designed specifically for 24/7 use, Ergo Depot offers several of its top-selling ergonomic chairs standard with a manufacturer's warranty that covers these intensive use applications.
