Diverse Product Portfolio

Behind the robust design of a Bimos work chair is the full innovative strength of the leading manufacturer of seating solutions for professional use. Together with occupational physicians and researchers, the company develops top products for every field of application that are fully adapted to the requirements of the respective workstation – whether it is a lab chair or an ergonomic seat for production.

The company’s most popular line is its laboratory chairs.Laboratories demand a level of precision and cleanliness that surpasses many other work environments. Bimos’s laboratory chairs are designed to meet these stringent requirements while providing the hygienic, flexible and compact comfort most needed. Laboratory chairs from Bimos not only adapt to the postures typically found in this area, i.e. the forward-leaning position at the microscope, but they also are functional andcontribute to the overall aesthetics of the laboratory environment. Additionally, they can be easily adjusted, taking into account different protection levels and the comfort preferences of employees. These are seating solutions that ideally adapt to the special challenges faced by laboratory workers.

Science + Technology Seating is a smart investment from a workplace and employee performance standpoint,” Scelfo said. “When you consider scientists and engineers have been provided secondclass seating solutions for decades, there is a huge opportunity and need for companies to spend dollars wisely in product that directly impacts the workers daily experience, which translates into really favorable contributions to recruiting, retaining, reward, recognition, and support health and safety.  The workplace reflects the culture more than ever and every tool a company can use to make the work experience more positive for their employees is of high value.

The lab chairs also offer important benefits:

• Hygienic Design and Laboratory Ergonomics: Cleanliness is the basic requirement for safe, high-quality work carried out in the laboratory. Whether from dust, dirt, or invisible pollutants – contamination can influence, falsify, and destroy investigative results. Because of this, the company’s laboratory chairs have their own hygienic design. Not only can they be washed, disinfected and withstand all commonly used cleaning agents, but they also have a seamless design. There are no cracks or gaps in which residue can gather. And when it comes to ergonomic quality and user comfort, its laboratory chairs have set the bar high.

• Simple, Compact and Design-Oriented: Adjusting the laboratory chairs from Bimos to suit personal requirements and working situation is self-explanatory. After all, maximum flexibility only makes sense when it is actually put into use. The compact and sturdy design of the laboratory chairs saves on valuable space in the laboratory, while also reducing the risk of damage caused by heavy use and a regular change of users.

BIMOS offers a comprehensive range of laboratory chairs for many different requirements. Depending on which protection level the laboratory belongs to, there are different characteristics that are crucial for laboratory chairs. Scelfo said that it is important that employees regard the laboratory chairs as comfortable and perceive them as an enhancement. At some workplaces, stools without backrests are more helpful to be as agile as possible, while at other places, employees appreciate laboratory chairs with rests that gently support the back. Regardless of the place of use and the comfort of the laboratory chair, employee health should be considered.

In addition to laboratory chairs, the company provides chairs for other environments:
