We love to come to your space and get to know you and your requirements and always prefer to site check all custom made work to save any issues at time of order.  Our free measure and quote is only available in Adelaide metro area.

All items will be delivered anywhere between 1 and 5 days from order. If an item happens to be out of stock at a particular time we will let you know immediately.

We aim to keep as many of our online items on display in our showroom. As we offer such a broad range not all will be on display at any one time so if you are making a special trip to view a product it is worth a phone call or email prior just to check if we have the item on display. If we don’t have the item on display then we can organise a sample for you to view.

We know how hard it is to choose a chair that you sit in for 5 minutes so we offer a chair trial service in which we deliver a brand new version of the chair you like to your office on trial for a 7 day period and if you are happy with it you can pay for it and keep it, if not we will collect it from you at the end of the trial period. PLEASE NOTE THERE IS NO CHARGE FOR THIS SERVICE UNLIKE MANY OF OUR COMPETITORS.  This service is only available in Adelaide.

AFRDI approved office chairs are tested to the Australian New Zealand standard.This is based on European standards and in some ways is even tougher – chairs that comply with AS/NZS 4438 are ergonomically sound, tough, durable and safe.

Ergonomically Sound
Ninety percent of the population – everyone other than the shortest 5 percent and the tallest 5 percent – should be able to adjust an AFRDI Approved chair to provide a comfortable work seat. The standard sets out a range of adjustments required for seat height, seat tilt, lumbar support and arm heights.

Tough
Chairs are measured using a special 64kg ‘dummy buttocks’ that takes into account the compression of seat foams and gas springs.

The effects of 'normal abuse' are reflected in the standard with a range off forces being applied ten times for 10 seconds each.

  • Someone standing on the chair (160kg for Level 4and 200kg for Level 6)
  • Someone sitting on the arm (90kg for Level 4 and120kg for Level 6, and there is a test for pulling the arms outwards as well)

To simulate rough treatment, the chair is dropped 10 times onto one leg (from a height of 300mm for Level 4 or 450mm for Level 6). In other tests a special25kg weight is dropped five times onto the seat (from 240mm for Level 4 and 350mm for Level 6), and a 6.5kg hammer is swung through an arc of 1m onto the sides of the arms and the back of the chair.
