We have outfitted quite a few prisons with heavy duty office chairs for their security stations. Of all the places we provide with office chairs, prisons are typically the most demanding. Prison guard stations are staffed 24/7 and the office chairs they use naturally take a beating. Because of this, prisons call for the toughest office chairs and we have several popular models that we use in these environments.
Just being straightforward, prisons need office chairs that are expensive if they expect them to last 10 years or more. These brands offer intensive use, 24/7 rated, extremely durable chairs. Husky Office is partnered with Concept Seating, an American office chair manufacturers, who specializes in these types of chairs. Some of Concept Seating's chairs are below. However, we understand that not all prisons will have the budget to afford these chairs, so we do have a few alternates that do a good job given their price range.
Office chairs for prison guards need to be roomy for gear belts and bulky uniforms. Prison guards are usually also in good shape, and naturally have some bulk, so the extra room will help those guards who do not fit comfortably into a standard office chair. Husky Office carries chairs that start at 300 LBs, but we have many 400 LB, 500 LB, and even an 800 LB model for ultimate strength.
Many of the office chairs that we use in prisons have adjustable arms, or arms that swing out of the way when not in use. While executive office chairs can be attractive due to the bulky cushioning, prisons need chairs that are more functional with ergonomic support and features like seat depth adjustment to accomodate all sizes of prison guards.
Below are our top office chairs for prisons, but be sure to check out all of our chairs to find the perfect fit for your needs and budget. Our heavy duty seating experts are also ready to discuss your needs with you and show you what we have done for other prisons in the past.
