Floor Mats & Footrests
Office Accessories – Always Well Equipped
If the desk has limited options for height adjustability and is not suited to smaller users, then the use of a footrest is recommended. This enables healthy posture. To begin using your footrest, first adjust your chair so that the forearms rest at a right angle on your desk. Now, adjust the footrest to form a right angle between your shins and thighs.
A heated footrest is a novelty, especially in winter. It will prevent cold feet and might even stave off the odd winter cold.
In general, the following rule applies to hard and soft floor covers: an office mat protects your floor from additional wear and tear.
Floor mats are available for hard floors (tiles, parquet, laminate, industrial carpets, stone floors etc.) and soft floors (middle- and long-pile carpets). Soft floor office mats have small spikes to ensure that the mat does not move on the carpet. By contrast, hard floor office mats are coated in a slip-resistant layer that keeps the mat in place.
Our swivel chairs generally come with soft floor castors. We recommend hard floor castors for use with office mats. Some chairs in our range are fitted with multipurpose castors, which are suitable for hard and soft surfaces. The product description will specify which castors come with your chosen product.
