Intensive use seating is meant for occupations that spend long, rigorous hours in an office chair around the clock. They will be rated for 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. The design will be more heavy duty than a standard office chair to make the chair able to handle the constant work load of a 24/7 intensive use chair. Similar to a big and tall office chair, an intensive use chair will have thicker steel on the chair frame, chair base and seat pan. The chair should also have a large amount of padding in order to keep the user comfortable for such long periods of time.
Look for an intensive use chair to be ergonomically designed with a lot of adjustability. It is crucial that the chair will position the user correctly to keep stress and tension to a minimum. Uncomfortable employees are unhappy employees. The chair should have full swivel ability with adjustable armrests, proper lumbar support and seat adjustments.

- Government Agencies
- Police and Fire Stations
- 911 Dispatch Centers
- Control Centers
- Call Centers
- Security Posts
- Round-the-Clock Reception Desk
