DuoBack®

Type 11

Type 12

The DuoBack Type 11 and DuoBack Type 12 chairs have brought so much relief to so many of our clients.  Post operation, Scoliosis and 'bad backs' in general are where these two chairs shine through above the competition.

They are the Original DuoBack chairs! which have served many people well over numerous years.

The difference between the two models is the finish of the back rest pads.  The Type 11 has plastic shells, the Type 12 is fully upholstered, that's it, nothing else changes.

ABOUT US

Whilst it is true that all of our seating is primarily designed for use in a busy modern office, the current climate means many more of us are working from home.  To us, now has never been a better time to stress the importance of ergonomics, especially in the 'office at home'.  Many companies take workplace ergonomics very seriously as they look after their staffs' well being.  So the chances are you have a good quality office chair, at the office.

But what about at home?  We hope that you will consider how and what you sit on away from the office and that you don't just make do!

If you are looking to purchase a quality chair for home, look out for any of our fabric, vinyl or leather finishes marked with the following symbols...

These markings indicate that the finishes have been tested to meet European and British standards in regards to fire and flame resistance and we hope, offer extra peace of mind when used at home.

DuoBack_Type_11_Pads_Recline.jpg

The independently mounted DuoBack back rest pads flex and move with your movements.  This flexibility ensures that when you place pressure on the top of the back rest, however slight, greater lumbar support is achieved as the lower section of the backrest pads push forwards into the lumbar region.  This applies to all of the DuoBack backrests, regardless of the chair collection.

One adjustment that is unique to the Type 11 & 12 DuoBack chairs, is lateral adjustment of the back rest pads.  The further apart the pads are set, the greater the flexibility.  The DuoBack has earned the nickname 'Hugger' because it does just that.  The further apart the pads are adjusted, the more they will 'Hug' your back.

If you do not wish to have such flexibility in the back rest movement then closing the gap creates a firmer back support.  However, there is still some movement as this is what the DuoBack is designed to do!
