Source International has created a range of chairs specifically designed for an ever-growing population. Approximately 30 per cent wider and 23 per cent stronger, its bariatric chairs can accommodate people of all shapes and sizes.
Two out of three Australian adults are considered overweight and that number is expected to increase to three out of four within the next five years. And as the population grows heavier, it requires wider and sturdier chairs. This need to accommodate a larger population is increasingly vital in healthcare environments, and becoming more and more necessary in such public and private settings as waiting rooms, conference centres, classrooms, cafeterias, schools and hospitals.
Source’s Cache collection offers contemporary and ergonomic chairs available in three widths. The Cache 17.5, Cache 19 and Cache 26 (Bariatric chair) have been tested and certified by the Australasian Furnishing Research and Development Institute (AFRDI) to withstand a static load of 330 kilograms, with the widest version able to endure up to 407 kilograms. Chairs have an upholstered seat and back and steel legs in chrome, soft chrome, black or gunmetal. They are available with or without arms and in two back shapes – Cache In or Cache Out.
The Font RX collection consists of a chair and bariatric chair in mid back and high back versions, as well as tandem double, tandem triple and tandem combinations. Seats and backs are upholstered, and steel legs are available in chrome, soft chrome, black and gunmetal. An ottoman, side table and coffee table are designed to match.
All chairs are 100 percent recyclable and come with a lifetime structural warranty and GREENGUARD certification.
