If you’re in an industry that spends long hours at a drafting table, most may think the table is what matters most: the most crucial part is the chair. What you’re sitting on affects your range of motion, your comfort, and how long you’ll be able to work before you have to stop and take a break. So it’s not unreasonable to want the best.
These five seats are the most wanted drafting seating in the industry. Of course, each has its perks, but which you pick is entirely up to what your business values the most!
1: Stradbroke Medium Back – $267.00
The black fabric will never go out of style. The Stradbroke Promesh high back drafting chair is a perfect mix of classic aesthetics, beautiful smooth lines, and comfort, making it an easy chair to work in. The ergonomic three lever independent seat and back tilt and height adjustment helps make a unique seating position for anyone. With a medium back, this chair works to create a comfortable seating position for most workers while allowing them more range of motion than a full-back would.
The best part of these chairs is that they work so well and invite you to work longer and more comfortably, while they fade into the background as another simple office supply. Drafting chairs need to allow the users to change positions, swivel, possibly roll to a new location and change heights on a whim, and the Stradbroke drafting chair offers all of this in spades.
