What is Ergonomics

Maintain a good posture with
Ergonomic Office Chairs

Ergonomics is the study of people's efficiency in their working environment.

Change your seat, change your life, improve your health.

Sitting for extend periods of time has become the norm for most office bound employees and employers.

Through the ages, technological advances in business mean that many adults are now employed in sedentary occupations and South Africans have one of the highest rates of inactivity in the world.

Sitting in a chair without proper support can cause poor circulation, back discomfort and over all fatigue.

With the new ergonomic chairs, you can improve your posture, overall health and wellbeing. 

What is the correct posture?

Correct posture involves training your body to stand, walk, sit and lie in positions where the least strain is placed on your supporting muscles.

This is also important to remember during weight-bearing activities.

Correct lumbar and pelvic support promotes better posture, better breathing, and less fatigue.


Ergonomic principles state that the chair should first fit the user, then fit the task, and then allow for posture change.

Office Chair Selection

We have a wide range of Ergonomic Office Chairs available in store.

Check out our online showroom to get more info.


The correct posture will ...

  • Keep your bones and joints aligned so that muscles are being used properly.
  • Decrease the stress on your ligaments.
  • Prevent the spine from being fixed in an abnormal position.
  • Prevent fatigue, because muscles are being used more efficiently,
           allowing the body to use less energy.
  • Prevent strain on your muscles, backache and muscle pain
  • Got Back Tension?

    You need proper back support.
    Sitting in a chair without proper support can cause poor circulation, back discomfort, and overall fatigue. See some examples of chairs below.

    Ergonomic Office Chairs Made in South Africa

    The Oxygen Chair is locally produced with 90% of the parts created & moulded right here in SA.
    The great thing is it still carries a very competitive price compared to the imported office chairs. 
    Support local is always good for the growth of the South African economy.

    The Industrial Work Chair

    The Industrial Work Chair Range
    The workman’s Office Chair Range

    A regular office chair will not be adequate in a harsh environment like a FACTORY or workshop. These places see wear and tear on your office chair like no other workplace. The Industrial work chair is designed specifically to suit this and a variety of other work environments with its easy to clean surface and polyurethane protective surface for extra durability.

    Industrial chairs in South Africa that you buy for really cheap prices from wholesalers are not always what they claim to be. People will try and sell you a vintage industrial chair or a cheap workman’s stool, but many of these are built to attract the eye only. They follow form and not function.

    A real workers chair is a workhorse. The industrial work chair might not be the prettiest chair in our showroom, but it’s made to withstand the Hours of movement on production lines or even in retail outlets.

    From R 1,819.00


    Did you know you can convert this office chair into the industrial workman’s stool?

    Different operators require different versions or setups of the worker’s chair. Besides the practical factory environment we have already mentioned this office chair is also ideal for a range of other places including food processing plants, warehouses, high tech laboratories as well as medical, hospital and clinic consulting facilities.

    Black workers seat with gas height adjustment

    Standard Features include:

    Without Arms
    550mm Black Nylon Base
    Seat & Back = Polyuethane
    Gas Height Adjustment
    Back Rake Mechanism

    Ideal for Sanitary Environments

    Black hospital chair

    The industrial chair is seen as an ideal laboratory chair or medical chair because of the sanitary benefits. The polyurethane surface is a non-absorbent - surgical surface.

    One wipe over the outer layer of the chair and you are as good as new. You are also able to reupholster these chairs making them recyclable for many years. Durability is the reason we say this chair is truly an INDUSTRIAL OFFICE CHAIR. It also goes by the names:

    - Worker's Chair  or Work Chair
    - Workman's stool or Workbench Stool

    Office Chair Colours, Textures & Fabrics

    What would the world be without choice? Today you can choose just about anything at the drop of a hat. Shouldn't that be the same for your Office Chair? After all your office chair is something you sit on almost every day for long periods of time. 

    Office Chair Colour and Style can say a lot about a person. Choosing the right fabric is essential to portrait the right message to your clients, visitors and even staff. What do you imagine when we say: Black Leather?

    I'm sure your first thought was Boss or CEO. This is the kind of Bold statement your fabric and colour choice can make. Of course anyone can have a black leather office chair, but the point is that they are making the statement that they are authoritative.

    Similarly a bright and colourful chair can be appealing and inviting. Imagine walking into a waiting room where the chairs are bright Orange. Wouldn't that make you feel like this place is happy and fun? 


    Add your company logo to the fabric

    Branding is a very important part of growing a business. Your Office Chair is a great way to place the trade mark of your business: Your Company Logo. Speak to us about having your chair fitted with custom upholstery. Call 022 713 11 11 and ask one of our consultants for more details.

    Not ready for a new chair yet? Why not repair your old one!

    Office Chair Repairs on the West Coast

    You might not realise it but your Office Chair works hard, every single day. Rolling back and forth and getting up and sitting down puts a lot of pressure on certain components of your office chair. Luckily for you, you don't need to replace your entire chair every time something breaks. At West Coast Office National we stock all the important components to fix your chair up to be good as new in no time.

    The parts that break first

    Most commonly the wheels give in first. Then the base starts to crumble and finally the gas prevents your chair from staying up in your preferred position. After a little longer the upholstery starts to fade and get holes & then the mechanism under the seat goes. By this stage you will have had your chair for years, but it still doesn't necessarily mean its time for a replacement. Come into our store and chat to us about what parts you would like to replace. We will help you fit them.
