Where To Buy Ergonomic Office Chairs In South Africa

The Importance Of A Well Designed Office Chair

Sitting for 10+ hours a day is one of the unfortunate consequences of modern day society. Now more than ever it’s not just how you sit that matters. It’s also what you sit on.

Setting yourself with a good foundation upon which you can cultivate a strong posture is paramount to maintaining a healthy spine and pain-free back.

Some Things To Consider Before Investing In A New Office Chair

  • Adjustable seat height allowing you to sit with your feet flat on the floor and arms parallel with the desk.
  • Adequate lumbar support to keep your spine in a neutral position.
  • Adjustable or removable armrests which allow you to sit with your shoulders in a relaxed position.
  • A backrest that can be adjusted in height and angle.
  • Seat material which is comfortable and prevents slipping.

Trustable Ergonomic Office Chair Retailers In South Africa

Red Line Office Chairs

Red Line is an excellent choice. I’ve personally bought from them before and can vouch for their quality.

You can visit their main showroom in Edenvale, which allows you to test drive your future chair. Their prices are also very competitive and in many cases lower than the chains like Makro or larger companies you’ll find online.

The customer service was also very impressive. When my son and I were unsure which chair to choose, instead of trying to up-sell us on a more expensive bells-and-whistles model, they recommended a cheaper chair that was perfect for what we needed.

If you’re aren’t in Johannesburg, they also have a Cape Town branch with a smaller selection.


Ergo Therapy

Ergo Therapy is one of the larger sellers of office chairs in South Africa. Their main office and showroom are situated in Sandton, but they also have dealers in the Western & Eastern Cape as well as KZN.

You can customise your chair entirely on their website, and they also offer a lot of useful information about ergonomics. Their prices are however higher than a smaller operation like Red Line.

FormFunc has a selection of what appear to be very well designed ergonomic chairs on their site. Unfortunately, they do not openly display the prices. So it’s difficult to gauge the value for money. They have offices in Fourways (Johannesburg) and Montague Gardens (Cape Town).


An Investment In Your Health

Buying an office chair that supports your back could save you thousands and thousands of rands in medical fees down the road. Having said that, we would recommend taking your time and doing your research before investing in your new chair. If possible, visit a showroom and try the models before you buy.

And if upgrading your current office chair isn’t in the budget at the moment, consider instantly upgrading your current chair with one of our Slim Back Support Cushions. It could drastically improve your posture and seat comfort for a fraction of the price of a new chair.
