We’ll ensure that your office chair & desk fit you!
Guernsey’s Premier Supplier of High Quality Office Chairs and Sit-Stand Desks.
Prime Practice are the premier specialists in Guernsey on Postural Seating and Ergonomic Assessments. We’ve been supplying high quality office chairs to many Public and Private organisations throughout the Channel Islands for over 25 years. We also advise client companies on the best ergonomic use of their office equipment to help reduce work-related illnesses and low productivity caused by lost working days. The benefits of SIT-STAND DESKS are now being acknowledged by many leading ergonomic experts, in particular the very positive effect in respect of diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Plus these desks meet the needs of countless office workers who suffer with ‘ Bad backs ‘ and debilitating Upper Limbs Disorders such as Carpal Tunnel, Epicondylitis (tennis elbow ) Tension neck syndrome etc. Coupled with vast experience gained from working at his clinic, Nick Guillemette’s extensive knowledge of anatomy and physiology gives him a distinct advantage when advising your staff on how to best use their equipment, improve their seating posture or alleviate any physical problems they may have.
We Provide A Total Service
Clients get a unique personal fitting for the chairs and sit-stand desks that we supply (rather like having a suit made) to ensure they make use of all the special features incorporated in the chairs and desks. This is a double-edged sword for the employer: not only are they seen by their staff to be looking after their individual welfare, but they are purchasing very durable chairs and sit-stand desks for their employees which offer full postural support and a sound long-term investment for their company…many of Nick’s clients have chairs that are still working after 15 years use! Full maintenance support is provided on the chairs and desks that we represent and clients receive prompt after-sales service at all times.
Our extensive range of Quality Office Chairs & Sit-Stand desks offers you the best opportunity to select the right model to suit both your needs and your budget. So, why not trial one before committing to purchase!
CNHC, Dip. AOSM, MBTPA
These are some of the leading brands of office chairs and desks which we represent in Guernsey, Alderney, Sark and Herm:
What do most companies look for when purchasing new office chairs? Usually this tends to fall into 2 catagories:
The cost – does the chair come within budget?
The colour – does the colour blend in with the office décor or match Corporate colours? The last consideration is comfort and very few think about the adjustability of the chair.
Why are these so important? Obviously colour and cost are an integral consideration but if the chairs do not incorporate the following adjustments, the chair will not provide the correct support for your employees’ comfort and meet your responsibilities as an employer for your duty of care under the Guernsey Employment Law.
The Correct Adjustments.
Lumbar support: This should be adjustable both in height and depth using either an inflatable air cell or an adjustable metal plate. Our backs change shape during the day with poor posture and stress and these lumbar supports allow the user to cater for this.
Armrests: These should also be adjustable in height and width to provide full support for your forearms, especially when using a mouse or keyboard. Fixed height armrests are useless and usually catch on the edge of desks. Staff therefore tend to remove them.
Seat Slide: This allows the length of the seat to be adjusted to suit the length of the user’s hamstrings. This provides maximum support for your lower limbs and reduces the pressure on your lower back muscles.
Seat Height and Tilt: The seat back should be adjustable in height and angle to ensure the correct seating posture.
The height range of most standard office chairs caters for between 5’3” – 5’10” but anyone outside of this range is at risk, especially those of taller stature. Our UK manufacturers can provide chairs which range from 4’8” – 6’8” to meet everyone’s requirements.
Prime Practice has been supplying quality office chairs since 1996 and many of our clients are still using our chairs after 15 years wear!
Selecting the right type of sit-stand desk
Sit-stand desks are really starting to gain a lot of favour in the workplace as science shows us that it’s a problem to sit for long periods of time without moving. It’s bad for our health, frankly. The accumulating research reveals something disturbing, and intriguing. The health hazards for sitting for long periods are serious even for people who are seriously active when they’re not in a sitting position. Even if you go to the gym a lot, in other words, it’s still bad to be sitting for long periods of time at your desk.
Our extensive range of SIT-STAND DESKS offers you the opportunity to select the best type of sit-stand desk to suit both your needs and your budget. Plus we can provide you with a suitable model to trial before committing to purchase!
The OE L200 is another option whereby we supply you with the necessary frame and electric motor using your existing desktop, depending on it’s design.Or you may wish to choose a new worktop in either Beech or Maple in sizes ranging from 1200-1800mm wide.
We also offer the L-E-VATE sit-stand desktop. These are a great improvement on earlier models of sit-stand worktops and are constructed of durable steel. They simply sit on top of your existing desk, whatever it’s design, and can be easily moved from one workstation to another without any disruption.
