WATERVILLE, OH (PRWEB) April 4, 2005 -– BioFit® Engineered Products announces ergonomic improvements that increase the adjustability of its Microtech high-tech chairs for Class 10 clean rooms and Class 10 combination clean room/static control applications.

Adjustable armrests and additional controls for seat and/or backrest adjustment are now available as options on BioFit Class 10 chairs. The selection increases opportunities for customizing basic Class 10 models to meet the exact requirements of individual users and specific high-tech applications.

BioFit now offers armrests that are both height and width adjustable and have either upholstered or self-skinned urethane pads. Adjustability increases the armrests’ capability to provide proper arm support that can greatly reduce shoulder, back and neck strain from prolonged seated work. The adjustability also adds to a chair’s flexibility in providing comfort and support for multiple users.

The expanded selection of ergonomic controls enables BioFit to provide the chair adjustability needed for virtually any high-tech work application. Depending on the chair model and control selected, a seated individual can adjust seat and backrest height and tilt as needed to support posture changes and work comfortably at desk, bench or high-bench work levels. Seat and backrest can be locked into place as required for the stability needed for close work.

BioFit can offer the additional adjustability by manufacturing Class 10 chairs and stools with a patented Microtech filtration system within the seat cushion. The filtration system replaces an air exchange system with a bag encased in a pan attached to the seat. The new system preserves the original appearance of the chair model while trapping particulates and allowing the seat to conform to body shape.

BioFit also announces Class 10 seating price reductions, made possible by replacing the air exchange system, and manufacture in a clean room to assure compatibility at Federal Standard 209E’s Class 10 level. BioFit assembles, wipes down and packages the Class 10 seating components in a clean room environment. The already-upholstered components are packaged in certified clean room bags, labeled and shipped to the customer for final assembly in a clean staging area. No wipe down by the customer is required.

BioFit offers many ergonomic chair models in its Microtech seating line. The performance package for Class 10 clean room chairs includes chrome-plated metal parts and Grade 2 vinyl upholstery in addition to the Microtech filtration system. The polypropylene filter media achieve Class 10 protection levels by trapping particles 0.10 microns and larger. The filter allows unrestricted air flow with a filter permeability of 180 CFM/Ft.2

Class 10 combination seating protects against static charges by providing 100 percent continuity, with static drain routes around parts that are insulated in standard models, including the armrests. The seating has chrome-plated metal parts, ESD vinyl for static dissipation, conductive casters or glides, and a drag chain for grounding the chair or stool to an ESD-control floor or mat.
