How Are Heavy Duty Office Chairs Different Than Standard Office Chairs?
For starters, a standard desk chair holds 250 lbs or less. A Big and Tall chair holds 250 lbs or more. The parts are much stronger on these specialized chairs to hold the extra weight. The seat typically has thicker plywood, and the seat plate, pneumatic cylinder, and base are also designed to hold additional weight for larger people. These chairs typically carry a higher price tag due to this. Most of these chairs are rated at 300, 400 or 500 lbs, so if you weigh 350 or 450 lbs., our suggestion is to upgrade to the next 50 lb weight capacity to ensure that your chair is strong enough for the intended weight.
