Introducing: TC Seating Seating, coatstands, accessories


Welcome

002


A seating catalogue with a difference Alongside our usual product ranges, we’ve included short features that may surprise you – see the Sumo wrestlers factoid on page 34, for example, and you’ll see how our approach to sustainable production on page 100 can support your organisation’s environmental and corporate social responsibility agendas. There are useful tips, such as how you can use British and European Standards to help you choose the right furniture on page 6. We’ve also added information on how you can increase productivity by helping improve your employees’ posture (page 40). We hope you’re sitting comfortably to read this; if you’re not, turn first to page 10. And if you have any questions, or need help deciding what might be the best options for you and your organisation, please get in touch. We’re here for YOU.

British and

We’ve adopted two types of standards that can help you make the best choice of seating for your business or home office. These are the tough standards we set for ourselves and the internationally recognised British and European Standards.

European

Standards can be really useful in

We subject our products to demanding strength and stability tests, conducted by independent test-houses to ensure they meet these British and European Standards. Finally, we undertake rigorous manual and quality checks when products are booked into our UK warehouse. Taking all this care means you can be sure that when one of our products arrive at your workplace, quality and safety have not been compromised.

helping you choose the right furniture. And our products meet or exceed ALL the relevant standards.

British and European Standards not only assure you that our products are safe and up to the job, but can be very useful in helping you choose the right products. For example, some of our chairs have been rigorously tested to conform with BS EN 1335; so, they can be routinely used eight hours a day by someone weighing up to 110 kg. But if your business operates on a 24-hour basis, and you need seating that can take some serious punishment, then you might look for products that conform with BS 5459 (2000). These will have been independently tested to be suitable for use 24 hours a day by people weighing up to 150 kg. Whatever products you order from us, you can be certain they have been tested to the appropriate level.

We offer you independent verification that our furniture meets the most challenging standards.

Heavy Duty Furniture for our expanding waistlines and workdays

034


Did you know? The average British man gained 7.7 kg between 1986 and 2000, over which time the average British woman gained 5.4 kg.

Our working days are getting longer, and our waistlines are getting bigger. At least, that’s what researchers at Oxford University are telling us. We spend a considerable amount of time sat in the office and not enough time exercising – only 38% of men and 28% of women in the UK exercise as much as the government’s top doctor says we should. Statistics show that Brits work the fifth longest hours out of the European Union’s 27 member states. One in five of us are now working more than 45 hours a week. Obesity is an invisible enemy to business whose costs, in terms of lost productivity and revenue, are only now being fully understood. According to the Dept of Health, obesity costs the UK economy £2.6 billion per year. Therefore, when you’re wrestling over the choice of office chair in which you’ll be spending most of your working week, be sure that it’s been designed with your work and lifestyle in mind, and that it can really stand up to any of the extremes in your environment. That’s why we offer really tough chairs – some can even defy three shifts of 150kg Sumo wrestlers working around the clock, seven days a week!

Our chairs are suitable for 24-hour use by a Sumo wrestling team.

Posture

Is not just for entrants on Britain’s Next Top Model

040


9.3 million

working days are lost each year due to work-related back pain.

Bad backs are the cause of 9.3 million lost working days and cost the NHS over £1 billion a year. A lot of people experience some kind of back pain at some point in their lives and for some, this pain can develop into degenerative spinal disorders which ultimately can cause paralysis or disability. Back injuries are the leading cause of work-related disability affecting both men and women of all age groups. Despite these scary statistics, bad posture, and the back conditions it can cause, can be easily improved through exercise and a correct sitting position. National charity BackCare recommends yoga as being particularly suitable for promoting good posture and a flexible back. There is also a growing body of evidence to suggest that regular yoga is not just good for your current level of health and fitness, but could actually help prevent some health conditions from arising. If you are looking for chairs and furniture that work with you to help improve posture, reduce the risk of employee back problems, and enhance the positive impact of exercise activities such as yoga, then you’ve come to the right place.

Yoga and other regular exercise, combined with using a good chair, help keep backs fit and people at work.

Fire Retardancy Taking the heat out of office safety

068


There are around

Furniture and furnishings may significantly increase fire-spread in rooms which form a fire escape through buildings. Responsible employers who follow the UK’s tough fire regulations and only use fire retardant office furniture, have played a major role in improving safety.

500 tragic firerelated deaths each year. Many could be avoided by only using fire-retardant furniture.

Sources Fire Statistics UK 2008 Fire Safety of Non-Domestic & Contract Furniture

In fact, fires outside the home have fallen drastically from 42,000 in 1998 to 27,500 in 2008. Despite this, there are around 500 tragic fire-related deaths each year. No matter how careful you are, some business fires are unavoidable: a shocking 36% of non-domestic fires are started deliberately. Reputable suppliers of office furniture provide products that meet the various regulations suitable for the workplace. Products tested to BS7176 Medium Hazard are suitable for use in offices, public places, government departments, educational establishments, hospitals, hostels and the home. Products tested to BS7176 Low Hazard are suitable for use in offices, public places and all other environments where Medium Hazard has not been specified. So it’s essential when choosing office seating that you make sure it achieves the relevant fire-related standards. We make that easy for you, because ALL of our products reach or exceed the UK’s challenging fire retardancy standards for offices and public sector environments, and we make sure they do, through the rigorous quality control we undertake with our suppliers.

We are fully behind the idea of eco-labels, which is why we have a sharp focus on reducing the environmental impact of our furniture. As part of that, we are working hard to ensure that all the products in this catalogue make use of recycled materials.

your corporate social responsibility agenda and reduces your organisation’s carbon footprint.

Research has enabled us to pinpoint the optimum proportion of recycled material (30-35%) within our products, ensuring the high quality is not compromised. The wood is produced using a manufacturing process that combines recycled scrap wood with a specialist resin technique to produce high strength panels. And these can be recycled after their lifetime, continuing the recycling chain and helping us achieve a more sustainable business. We employ state of the art technology and lean manufacturing techniques to ensure the optimum number of products are produced from each board. All of our products are designed to allow each component to be replaced individually, minimising the level of waste generated. Our commitment to reducing our environmental impact and our carbon footprint is ongoing, with regular evaluations to check on progress and make improvements to our environment policy.

Mechanisms Fixed back mechanism

Sliding seat mechanism

The seat will go up and down, the back rest will go up and down and in and out, but you can’t change the angle of the back rest.

The sliding seat comes as standard on our Cheetah and Vista chairs, providing seat depth adjustment for different user leg lengths.

Permanent contact mechanism (PCB)

Knee-tilt mechanism

The seat will go up and down, the back rest will go up and down and in and out, and you can fix the angle of the back rest or leave it free floating – i.e. in ‘permanent contact’ with your back.

Asynchro mechanism

The seat will go up and down, the back rest will go up and down, you can fix or free float the back rest and fix or free float the angle of the seat – independently of the back rest. This lets you find the perfect position to use a computer – even tilting forwards.

Lock-tilt mechanism

A single lever lets you adjust the seat height up and down and lock or unlock the tilt of the chair. These mechanisms can either be locked in an upright position or left to free float with the user. They all have a torsion control knob to adjust to body weight.

A twin-lever mechanism, the right lever allows you to adjust the seat height up and down and the left lever can be used either to lock the chair in any one of three or five positions (lockable positions indicated by number shown) or can be left to tilt with the user. The pivot point is found towards the front of the seat so that your feet remain on the floor when tilting backwards. A torsion control knob can be adjusted to user body weight and a non-return facility prevents the user from being thrown forward when the mechanism is unlocked.

Asynchro torsion mechanism

The seat will go up and down, the back rest will usually go up and down, you can fix or free float the back rest and fix or free float the angle of the seat – independently of the back rest. You can even adjust the torsion control knob to match your body weight. This lets you find the perfect position to use a computer – even tilting forwards.

Synchro mechanism

The seat will go up and down and you can fix or free float the angle of the seat and back rest together – usually in a ratio of 2:1, so for every one degree the seat tilts, the back rest tilts two degrees. Our synchro chairs can be fixed in any one of three, four or five positions, indicated by the number shown. The easy way to find a comfortable position. You can even adjust the torsion control knob to match your body weight. (All of our synchro mechanisms have an ‘anti-shock’ facility which means you aren’t thrown forward when the mechanism is unlocked).

Chair Maintenance To ensure the structural integrity of your chair is maintained for as long as possible, we recommend that the following checks are carried out every 2-3 months: • All bolts and hand wheels are checked and tightened if necessary. • The adjustability of the chair should be checked to ensure all levers work and the chair can be easily adjusted to suit the user. • The base and castors are often subject to much neglect. It is important that they are checked for any sign of wear or tear and replaced where required.

Fabrics & Materials

How important is knowing the fibre content? What you can’t see is just as important as what you do when choosing the fabric on your new upholstered furniture. Knowledge about fibre content can be misleading that’s why we only use recognised manufacturers you can trust when choosing fabrics. Second Nature is Camira’s eco-brand, signalling the ultimate in environmental well-being in contract upholstery fabrics. It designates fabrics which are made from recycled raw materials, renewable and compostable fibre types, or which – in response to customer demand – contain a CO2 offset to make them climate neutral. Camira say “We don’t just want to create products which look great, we’ve a responsibility to understand and minimise their full environmental impacts”. Second Nature fabrics are designed and manufactured with the environment in mind, using environmental consumers.

Recycled fabrics From the first niche fabric made from recycled MOD Army jumpers, Camira now offer polyesters made from post-industrial waste, and even E-Leather made from recycled trimmings and shavings from leather off-cuts. Renewable and compostable fabrics These include natural and renewable pure new wools and even a fabric made from the common nettle. They’re all fully biodegradable for a back to earth closed loop environmental upholstery solution.

Climate neutral fabrics Camira have established the amount of CO2 produced for wool-based fabrics, starting from a wool fleece sheared in New Zealand, through to spinning, warping, weaving and dyeing. Damaging CO2 emissions are then offset by investing in environmental projects via the specialist Climate Care organisation. For further information on all fabrics available from Camira go to www.camirafabrics.com

Bradbury manufacture specifically for the contract market. Their fabrics are highly durable, stain resistant and completely suitable for offices, schools, universities, hospitals, hotels, pubs and clubs. All the fabrics supplied have been tested for high levels of resistance to wear and flammability. All fabrics meet the flame retardant standard BS7176 to low or Medium Hazard. Bradbury say” when we talk quality, we also mean quality of choice. Tastes and fashions change quickly, so we don’t stand still when it comes to introducing new colours”. Bradbury maintain strict quality controls, so you know you’re getting a highly durable material that’s passed stringent wear resistant and flammability tests.
