Cost Savings and Longevity
Posted by Tim Hooley on
In trying economic times, every dollar counts. Facility managers everywhere are hoping to stretch their equipment a tad further and put off repairs a bit longer. Cost savings through durable equipment, guaranteed to last year after year without replacement or repair, is the name of the game and Domore is a prime player in the intensive use chair industry.
A proper design built with replaceable components is pivotal for the longevity and functionality of intensive use chairs. Experts recommend that customers should buy chairs with a minimum caster diameter of 66 mm. Also, experts advise that durable chairs are should be built with a base that has at least five legs, which adds more stability and strength to the chair. All Domore chairs meet and exceed these recommendations. All Domore intensive use chairs are constructed with casters with a minimum diameter of 75 mm. In addition, all of Domore’s intensive use chairs have at least five legs, and some feature six legs to insure maximum safety, durability, and longevity. The Domore XL has ability to support users weighing up to 500 pounds. Domore chairs go beyond the minimum requirements for intensive use chairs and gutilize only the highest quality components available.
A key dimension to long-term longevity is the possibility of replacing damaged or malfunctioning parts of the chair. It is certainly cost prohibitive to dispose of and replace an entire intensive use chair simply because of one broken component. Domore chairs avoid this design flaw; most of the components, such as the casters and mechanical lumbar supports, are completely replaceable. To guarantee that you’ll experience as little downtime and loss of productivity as possible, Domore will ship out warranty replacement parts free of charge if the need arises.
When all else fails and when chairs need to be replaced, you’ll need a comprehensive warranty that ensures definite cost savings over the long term. All Domore chairs are covered by a comprehensive warranty. Because Domore intensive use chairs are designed to withstand the demanding rigors of 24 hours a day, seven days a week environment that is equal to twenty-two years for a standard chair that is used eight hour/ five days a week chair, Domore customers can count on year after year of worry-free use.
You’ll want to ensure that your investment in an intensive use chair doesn’t adversely affect your other investments, such as the costly electrical equipment that fills many intensive use environments. Of particular concern for many such environments is the possibility of electro-static discharge, which can irrevocably damage sensitive computer and carefully calibrated electronic equipment. Domore Heritage series and Intensive use chairs are available with electric-static discharge protection that meets or exceeds technical performance tests for static electricity.
Domore has a distinguished history of intensive use chairs and many pleased customers believe that Domore chairs contribute to long-term cost savings through superior strength and durability. It is not uncommon that we receive comments from our customers that their Domore chairs are 5-10-15 and up years in service and still in good condition.
