Finding the right office chair can be a difficult task, choosing the type of material to have your chair upholstered in is a great place to start. Popular chair manufacturers have been upholstering most office chairs in fabric and leather. That was until the highly durable mesh material that was first introduced in the early 90’s hit the market.
The way mesh is used on these modern chairs varies from chair to chair, but recent mesh chairs have evolved to incorporate a mesh back with a fabric or leather seat. The reason for these mesh desk chairs becoming so popular was due to their ability to adapt to each individual user, flexing to create specific zones of support not offered by the many traditional office chairs.
While mesh back chairs may not be for everyone, people who sit in hot offices for hours at a time should certainly look into this type of seating. If you decide to go with a mesh chair, you must understand that all mesh office chairs were not created equal. Many of the cheap mesh chairs made are very stiff and do not offer proper support. Look for a mesh chair that is highly adjustable and is not too soft or too stiff.
Finding a happy medium will ensure you are comfortable long after you make your initial investment. Two mesh chairs come to mind in particular; the mesh back chair and the Ergohuman mesh chair. Both of which are highly adjustable and each utilizes a durable mesh material that will provide the proper support needed to stay comfortable for extended periods of time.
