The result is a choice of attractive and robust, dynamic seating solutions which optimise posture, health and well-being, thereby improving the potential for productivity gains and motivation from workstation-based employees.

Individual humans come in all shapes and sizes, and many have special seating requirements. For more than 25 years Status Seating has offered tailored chairs to the market that suit the person rather than fitting the person to a chair designed for the average. The Humanfactor range allows you to combine your choice of five backrests, four seat sizes, three armrests and two seat mechanisms to find the most suitable solution for the user. The chairs are based around a robust, heavy-duty specification suitable for 24/7 or 150kg users.

Adjustable Mechanism Features Guide We offer a wide choice of chair mechanisms to provide a full range of adjustments to suit particular tasks, meet individual needs, or to promote incremental gains in welfare or productivity. All mechanisms ensure trouble-free performance and have been selected after thousands of hours of continuous testing. All swivel chairs are fitted with top quality pneumatic height-adjustment lifts as standard – tested to 150kg.

Synchronous Mechanism

Independent Seat & Backrest Mechanism

Tension Control

These mechanisms link the seat tilt and back rake in a defined ratio in order to promote the opening up of the body angle when leaning backwards. This movement stimulates blood-flow to the spine.

These mechanisms allow for a lockable adjustment to the back or seat angle prior to engaging the knee-tilt or synchronous action of the mechanism. This helps to promote improved posture and comfort.

These controls adjust the spring-force of the resistance to body mass when leaning backwards. Correct adjustment helps to stimulate an equilibrium position during free-float that encourages back movement and stimulates blood-flow whilst reducing static stress.

Sliding Seat

Therapod™ System

CpodÂŽ System

These mechanisms can be adjusted to increase the depth of the seat pad, increasing the amount of under-thigh surface are in contact with the seat surface. Many have a spring-loaded return.

Elasticated straps in four positions stretched across the whole backrest help to create the optimum support, relaxation and comfort for the spine. Some models allow for adjustability to locate the intensity of support in the correct spot for an individual user.

A mesh backrest stretched across a heavy duty plastic frame is augmented by a five-strap tensioning system adjustable by the user at each height level.

Inflatable Lumbar Support

Height-adjustable Backrest

Adjustable Armrests

Although upholstered chair backrests provide a good level of support, comfort can be enhanced by adding an inflatable lumbar support.

Adjustment is by lifting upwards to the tallest position before the backrest falls back to its starting point. Audible clicks from the ratchet signal incremental height adjustments.

A variety of armrests can be selected which allow the arm pad to be adjusted in combinations of height, depth, width or rotational angle. Heavy Duty and Fold Away armrests are also available.

UK Manufacturing To meet customer expectations Status seeks to source the best value components and materials, but uses UK-based original manufacturers whenever possible. This policy ensures a close relationship with the supply chain and reduces environmental impacts from logistics excess. Many of the parts we use are unique to Status. In addition, our upholstery and assembly processes require the application of multiple skills and techniques, many of which are unique and have been developed by our own technicians and engineers.

Quality Assurance

Fabric Options

Our continuous aim is to maintain a high level of integrity from our commitment to quality and environmental protection at every stage of the supply process. This is evidenced by our ISO9001 and ISO14001 accreditations.

Retail prices for chairs are banded in accordance with the quality or cost of the covering material. Alongside the named fabrics in our price list bands, our strong and well-established links with UK supply partners enable us to offer a broader range of grades and colours.

Status calls upon traditional hand skills to make its chairs. We employ a team of experienced fabric cutters, seamstresses, upholsterers and assemblers whilst also maintaining investment in computer-aided cutting and upholstery technology. We use only top quality components and materials to ensure that our chairs will last.

Most models can be upholstered in vinyl, leather, or other covering materials if required. Please ask us if you have any special requests

Status products are currently used in many blue-chip organisations across the UK, including major banks, financial service companies, local and national government offices, emergency service control rooms, along with many other private companies.

All products in this brochure carry a limited warranty that is dependent on the product selected, product use and fabric selection. Our standard warranty covers the replacement of parts for chairs returned to us for a period of five years from manufacture, based on standard office use (up to 40 hours per week) and inclusive of fabric, but subject to the caveats of wear and tear and inappropriate use or abuse.

Product Warranty

There is a reduced limited warranty of three years for chairs in a three-shift or 24/7 work pattern, or for continuous users greater than 120kg for the standard Status products. However, Humanfactor chairs are designed to be suitable for users up to 150kg and for three-shift or 24/7 work environments. Provided that the appropriate fabric has been selected for 24/7 use then the standard warranty will apply. For Humanfactor chairs supplied to individuals up to 120kg with a standard (40 hours per week) work pattern, the limited warranty can be extended to ten years. For Humanfactor chairs supplied to individuals between 120kg and 150kg with a standard (40 hours per week) work pattern, the limited warranty remains at five years.

Environment Our environmental policy is based on the simple mantra of reduce, reuse, recycle. It’s not just about covering up the large carbon foot prints; it’s about reducing them. We have already reduced our environmental impact by using a three stage chrome effect powder coat finish as opposed to chromium plating and also using water based adhesive to eliminate solvent emissions.

There are many examples of Status chairs remaining in good order and function for 15 years or more. Further information on our Product Warranty is available on request or on our website.

Disclaimer The products featured within this brochure reflect the specifications at 1st January 2015. Status reserves the right to amend or adjust the products or options illustrated or described at any time, in the interests of improvement or maintenance of product standards. In addition, Status reserves the right to discontinue any product at any time. 21
