In the past it wasn’t so easy to find Large Executive Office Chairs to cater for the slightly overweight people. Not too mention the really heavy people who had to suffer inferior light weight chairs. But times are changing for the better. Manufacturers have now realized the need to provide higher weight capacity computer chairs.
Breaking or even falling through a standard office chair was once a nightmare for me, unfortunately lived out on many occasions. A standard 200 LB office chair (Which most department stores cater for) is simply not a high enough weight capacity. Besides the fact they cant hold a heavier persons weight, they simply aren’t big enough or very uncomfortable to sit in.
These days, I believe ergonomics in the office is becoming the most important asset in any office. When your a bit bigger or taller then the average person, it’s very hard to sit correctly with the correct posture and expect to be painless for the grinding 8 hour shift. Unless you have an adequate sized seat for your specific weight and height requirements. Sore backs and bad posture are almost a certainty.

Nonetheless there are still many varieties of large office chairs for the executive. If your local office store doesn’t stock these bigger chairs, your next safest bet is online. Usually the cheaper option too. Online stores are even offering free shipping on various products and next day shipping. Which isn’t a bad idea if you live in America.

The price is justified by the extra strong components needed to have the weight limit desired.

So the initial increase in price will benefit us for years to come.
