Chair Functions

 

Center Tilt

Tilt is considered the most basic posture adjustment available. With a tilt control, the chair pivots around a fixed point- usually located directly above the pneumatic cylinder. The tilt has a 1:1 ratio; for every one inch you lean back, the front edge of the seat comes up one inch.

Benefits

  • Allows for a comfortable rocking/reclining motion during meetings, phone calls, and reading activities.
  • The greater the amount of body movement, the more the user will benefit from increased circulation and redistribution of pressure points during the workday.

How To Use

  • On most models with the tilt feature, there will also be a tilt lock/release.
  • This feature will use the same paddle as the pneumatic control.
  • To engage the tilt lock in the upright position, push the paddle “in” about 1/4” (toward the chair stem).
  • To release, pull the paddle “out” 1/4” and recline.
  • The lever to adjust the tilt is a round lever on the right side of the chair. To adjust, release the tilt lock and rotate the lever clockwise or counter-clockwise.

Recommended Position

  • Many users prefer to engage the tilt lock in the upright or reclined positions for keyboarding, and release the chair to recline freely during phone calls and paperwork.
