Production work makes huge demands on the workplace: people may be using a great deal of energy, they may be precision-working, or making repetitive movements. A workplace chair should not force the user to sit in a constrained position. It must suit its environment perfectly, must be adapted to the work involved, and above all must be adjustable to every person sitting on it. The human body is the measure. A workplace chair must be an equally good fit for anyone and everyone – men and women, small people and large, heavy and light, and young and old - which is why it is essential to have a sufficiently wide range of settings and adjustments.
Follows the movements of the upper body, and ensures that the back always remains fully supported. The permanent contact backrest is ideal for people who have to lean forward for long periods of time, with only a small distance between eyes and workpiece (e. g. working in precision engineering or in the laboratory).
Provides an active-dynamic sitting experience with weight regulation. The seat and backrest accompany the body as it moves. This gives the user a feeling that can best be described as " weightless floating ". The synchronous technology comes into its own where users are working at office- type working situations, working at a screen, or constantly changing their sitting position.
Seat height adjustment allows adjustment to body size and height of workplace. The ideal seat height is when the knees, hips and elbows form an angle of at least 90 ° , with the feet resting flat on the floor.
Many jobs are carried out in slightly raised positions, and require people to bend forward. A correspondingly tilted seat provides a seat angle of at least 90 ° , while at the same time providing contact with the backrest.
The seat depth adjustment matches the depth of the seat to the size of the body, giving the best possible contact surface for the thighs. Contact with the backrest, and therefore the support it provides, are maintained.
The backrest height adjustment ensures that a person is ideally supported – especially in the lumbar region – no matter how tall he / she is.
By individually adjusting the pressure of the backrest, both light and heavy people can sit with the correct posture.
Armrests have the important function of reducing the strain on the upper body and arms. The height, breadth and depth of our 4D armrests can be adjusted, and can also be swivelled.
The mounting aid is height-adjustable, and can be folded upwards by 90 °
Our Duotec cover fabric, which is 95 % polyacrylic and 5 % Lycra, is particularly soft, hard-wearing and breathable. A conductive ESD version of the Duotec Fabric ESD is also available. This version has additional metal fibres woven into it.
Magic is a great-feeling modern Synthetic Leather ESD with a fine structure. By looking at it, it is difficult to tell the difference between genuine leather and Magic. This Synthetic Leather ESD is extremely soft and comfortable. But in spite of that it is extremely hard-wearing. Magic is especially low-maintenance. It is washable, and resistant to oil and disinfectants. A black conductive ESD version (with carbon pigments) is also available for use in ESD areas.
“Supertec ESD“ is an innovative cover material like no other upholstery surface. Supertec ESD consists of a textile substrate covered with micro-studs. So Supertec ESD combines the advantages of fabric and Integral Foam ESD. Supertec ESD is soft, comfortable and breathable. At the same time, it is very tough, cut resistant, non slip and easy to clean. Supertec ESD is a world first among cover materials, and Bimos is the first manufacturer to use this material in workplace chairs.
Integral Foam ESD is a good option for environments where the chair is likely to come into contact with aggressive substances such as oil, grease, swarf, mild acids and alkalis, moisture or flying sparks. The surface is highly resistant, extremely robust, washable and very easy to clean. Another plus point is the material’s durability in that it can withstand pointed and sharp-edged objects. Thanks to its structured surface, Integral Foam ESD has good climatic properties. A high level of comfort is guaranteed. Integral Foam ESD – often known as PU or polyurethane foam – is extremely tough and easy to clean. Like our SoftTouch PU foam, Integral Foam ESD is extraordinarily soft. A black conductive ESD version is also available for use in ESD areas
|Reliable electrostatic discharge protection for electronic workstations ESD (Electro Static Discharge) refers to the electrostatic discharge of charged objects or people. Electrostatic discharge can result in damage to microelectronics components. This is because of the minute scale involved which means that the energy from a static discharge has the same impact on a semiconductor as a lightning strike would on a tree. ESD chairs play a crucial role when it comes to ensuring reliable ESD protective measures for electronic workstations. ESD protection is regulated by European standard EN 61340, which is designed to help users select appropriate protective measures. It stipulates the following in respect of workplace chairs: “The resistance to the point of contact with the floor of any parts of the seat that could come into contact with the user’s body during standard use must be <109 Ω.“ (Extract from standard EN 61340-5-1)
* Conductive high-comfort upholstery
* Volume conductive plastics
* Steel components with conductive coating
* 5 volume conductive castor / glides
* Fixed and defined discharge resistance
AES ESD chairs meet the requirements of standard EN 61340-5-1 as far as their use in EPAs (ESD Protected Areas) is concerned. However, the demands that actually apply in practice are often more stringent even than this. This is because the increasing miniaturisation of electronics components is making them more susceptible to the problem of electrostatic discharge. The most effective way of dealing with this issue is either to prevent charges from occurring in the first place or to ensure that any undesirable charges are safely discharged. Thanks to the optimum choice of materials and connection technology used, AES chairs reliably prevent the build-up of electrostatic charges. In addition, the chairs are designed to direct any charges that the user may be carrying safely down to the conductive base as soon as he or she sits down. Thus, AES ESD chairs offer a fully integrated system of protection.
