We can now offer: •Upholstery deep cleaning for your office chairs. We use hot clean extraction units together with cleaning chemicals which destroys the build up of dirt and germs that typical methods cannot eradicate. •All chairs are also inspected for effective operation including gas lifts, seat slides, arm and back rests. •All cleaning can be carried out at your premises for your convenience.

Did you know? Workplace bacteria is most abundant on the office telephone, with the office chair coming a close second. We are happy to announce that we are now able to provide upholstery deep cleaning within your own office environment.


Is your workplace ready for Summer? Dare we mention the word ‘Summer’? Well it’s that time of year again to be thinking about how you could make more use of your outdoor space. Lots of people are talking about walking meetings these days as they are far less distracting with the added benefit of taking in some fresh air. If meetings are going to last more than 15-30 minutes why not take a seat in your workplace gardens and continue your meeting in the fresh air. You don’t just have to hold meetings just in meeting rooms! Make the most of our Great British Summers!


Always looking for innovative products to take to our clients..... A lot of our time is spent researching for products that we feel will be a real benefit to all of our clients. Whether it’s making a facilities team job a little easier, increasing security of personal belongings in the workplace or helping clients to achieve their ‘green’ targets, we really do want to operate as a true business partner and act as an extension to your own teams. The future office environment will be expected to plan, employ & monitor energy saving schemes to reduce energy costs & carbon emissions. Desktop computers & other office equipment such as printers contribute significantly to energy usage and so savings can be made if this equipment is efficiently managed. Most modern PCs have some form of power saving facility, but users often disable them and so potential savings are not achieved. Worse still, one study shows that up to 60% of PCs are left powered on overnight, leading to much higher energy usage than necessary. Elsave from Office Electrics provides Facilities Managers with the most comprehensive set of tools to monitor & manage power consumption in the office environment.

Whilst most modern mobile technology devices are charged by a USB fitting, it makes sense to not only have a three pin plug socket but also a ‘fast charging’ USB socket too.....

Please get in touch if you would like to save more energy and one of our specialist advisors will come and discuss all the options with you. 1. Linking conference chairs Linking Lynx is a piece of cake: lift it, move it to the left and there you are: it’s linked to its neighbour. No additional tools or manoeuvring: the chairs themselves form the linking. 2. Intelligent folding tables Discreet functionality and high quality: these are the main features of the Lacrosse table. It stands as if carved from stone, yet it can also be folded together – quickly and without trapping the user's fingers! It can be stacked very tightly to save space, with the legs lying flat against each other. 3. Desk Electrics Whilst most modern mobile technology devices are charged by a USB fitting, it makes sense to not only have a three pin plug socket but also a ‘fast charging’ USB socket too. 4.
