Not everyone is small and thin, especially in First World countries. That’s why heavy duty office chairs exist for those people, who are able to enjoy life to the maximum and thus having a few pounds of extra weight. Such chairs need to be tested to withstand up to 204 kilograms of constant pressure. Their 5-star base, if construction permits it, must be extra sturdy and wheels must be of resilient materials.
One more offer is Atlas Bariatric from Chair Office furniture factory. Featuring highly stylish look for its price category and robust, enlarged frame is one of the most commercially successful heavy duty office chairs 500lbs. All this is for a bit more than 200 dollars. Free shipping within European Union gives this chair a commercial success. When you look for such furniture in United States however, you might find yourself less lucky. There is a great variety of big dimension chairs at website called Office Chairs Outlet, and they seem to feature very durable leather of high quality. Still, prices rarely get lower than 1,500, even with rather mundane looking products.
There is also even more limited niche, that caters to needs of people with more weight. Such heavy-duty office chairs can hold users up to 600lbs. It’s not easy to find them and in most cases this furniture requires pre-order of some sort. Thanks to lobbying of various fat acceptance groups, all furniture manufacturers are obliged to produce such chairs on demand, even if price is high. This was not the case back in 1950’s-1970’s, when such clients could be refused at a whim of manager.
