PIAZZA OFFICE CHAIR USER’S INSTRUCTIONS
WHY ADJUST MY NEW CHAIR CORRECTLY?
Piazza has been specifically designed to
compliment the human form. There have
been a range of functional options included
in this chair to make it the most comfortable,
functional chair for your specific work environment.
One of these many features is the
versatile synchronised mechanism. This
means that the seat and back of your chair
move in a set ration of 2:1. You can set your
chair in ‘free-float’, when the chair’s seat an
back are free to move with you as you
move, providing constant postural support
making it ideal for when you are regularly
swapping between tasks whilst sitting. Alternatively you can use the
synchronised mechanism in a ‘locked’ position, meaning the seat and back stay in the
same position. This is the
preferred setting as it provides constant support to you while carrying out a task that
makes you maintain a similar
position.
SITTING PROPERLY
THE THINGS TO LOOKS OUT FOR:

Your body should always feel that it is in
an upright but comfortable and relaxed
position.
Your bottom should always be at the
back of the seat
Your neck should feel upright and your
shoulders squared and relaxed
Your arms should hang straight down by
your side with elbows bending at right
angles to rest on your work surface
Your feet should be flat on the floor (or
on a foot rest) and your knees at right
angle
Your back should have permanent contact with the chair back and the lower
‘lumber’ muscles feel
supported
Your pelvis should feel like it is tilted
slightly forward with a comfortable one

In today’s work environment many hours are spent sitting, usually in front of a
computer. The physical impact of sitting so much is high and is greatly influenced by what or sitting posture is like.
Areas that are particularly susceptible to pain from sitting incorrectly is the
neck, shoulders, back and upper thighs. Through using the right equipment
correctly adjusted we can greatly increase our comfort and productivity.
HOW TO ADJUST YOUR CHAIR SO THAT YOU CAN SIT WITH THE CORRECT
POSTURE:

2/ Sliding seat
adjustment lever
3/ Seat height
adjustment lever
6/ Height
adjustable back
5/ Seat and back

and lock lever
4/ Tension Adjustable

1/ Height adjustable arms
The arm height adjustment can lock in 5 heights, operating via a ratchet – click
through mechanism. Lift to increase heights and use pressure to decrease
height.
2/ Sliding Seat adjustment – where fitted
Of particular benefit for tall people. Pull on the lever under the right side of the
seat to release the sliding mechanism. Slide seat away from back and once in
preferred position release lever to lock that position.
3/ Seat height adjustment
Establish the right seating height with both the hips and knees comfortable at
right angles. To increase the seat height lift your weight from the seat and pull
the lever under the right side of the seat up. To make the chair decrease in
height use your body weight, by sitting in the chair at the same time as pulling
the lever up. Always release the lever to lock the chair into a comfortable
height.
4/ Tension adjustable wheel
Turn the tension adjustment wheel left or right to increase or decrease the tension in the synchronised mechanism. This tension level effects the ease of adjustability in the seat and back position in accordance with your body weight.
5/ Seat and back adjustment
Release the lever under the left side of the seat to let the chair operate in free
float mode, where the back and seat follow your body in unision. Alternatively,
to keep the chair locked in position, release the lever, find the most comfortable position and return the lever to lock the seat and back into position.
6/ Height adjustable back
The back height is adjusted via a ratchet mechanism that is built into the back.
Use both hands on either side of the back and lift upwards to increase the
back height. There are 13 locking positions. To lower you must lift it to the highest position which will cause it to release back to the lowest, starting position.
