Overview

At the heart of the Max task chair lies a sophisticated synchronised mechanism with automatic tension adjustment. Recognising that we are all individuals, we aim to take the complexity out of selecting the right task chair. Simple, versatile and adaptable seating should be the standard for all ergonomically designed chairs.

The five-star base used on Max contains a steel ring to help support the height adjustment spindle.  Traditionally this was moulded into the plastic base, but was difficult to extract at the end of life, making recycling much more challenging.  The Max five star base still contains the steel ring, but we have re-designed the base so that the steel ring can be easily removed, allowing the plastic base and the steel ring to be easily separated and then recycled at the end of life.

The Max chair has been designed with an ‘un-glued’ seat upholstery, so that no glue is used in its manufacture. This has an immediate impact on the volume of VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) which are present in glues being released during the production of the chair. This also enables the three different materials; plastic, foam and fabric to be separated easily at the end of life.

The Max chair contains four main material groups; Plastics, Metal, Foam and upholstery fabric. Where possible material with a high recycled content is used on non-visible parts; the five star base, seat board and the underseat mechanism, thereby reducing the amount of ‘virgin’ material used in manufacture and reducing the environmental impact of each chair.  In percentage terms; the Max chair is manufactured using materials with an overall 33% recycled content and which are then 92% recyclable at the end
of life.

We believe that the very best protection for the environment is for us to design and manufacture products which are robust and durable and which have a long life in normal office use.

Max is designed and manufactured to conform to the latest performance standards, is manufactured under the stringent Quality Assurance standards BS EN ISO 9001 and BS EN 14001 environmental management system and carries a full five-year warranty in normal office use.
