Can a mesh backed chair provide adequate lumbar support?
Using Form-Sensing Mesh Technology, Liberty offers perfect lumbar support for everyone automatically - without the need for manual adjustments or external lumbar devices. With Liberty, three panels of non-stretch mesh are sewn together to create a contoured shape optimized for the human back.
Why is non-stretch mesh preferable to stretchy mesh? Wouldn’t stretchy mesh be more comfortable?
A single panel of stretchy mesh pulled tight around a frame cannot be contoured to the shape of the human back, and therefore cannot provide adequate lumbar support. This will lead to discomfort rather than comfort. Non-stretch mesh displaces instead of stretches, and provides support for users of all sizes.
Why isn’t the seat-pan of the Liberty office chair made of mesh as well?
A contoured foam or gel seatpan distributes a person’s weight more evenly, preventing pressure points and maximizing long-term sitting comfort. A mesh seat is very appropriate for shorter-term use, but is not recommended for all-day sitting.
What kind of mesh and upholstery textiles are available for the Liberty chair?
The textiles available for Liberty are as unique as the rest of the chair and satisfy requirements far more demanding than typical mesh and upholstery textiles. To view Liberty textile descriptions, specifications and colors, click on the Textiles Color custom option within the Liberty chair section.
Are the mesh textiles offered for Liberty gentle on clothing?
Our mesh textiles were specifically designed to be gentle on your clothes. Unique to our industry, Humanscale performs a reverse Wyzenbeek test on all of our mesh textiles to ensure that they will not damage clothing. We look at how our mesh abrades three different clothing textiles compared to a standard #10 cotton duck as the abradent. These results show that our mesh textiles are far gentler on your clothing than cotton duck.
What frame color options are available for Liberty?
To view the frame color options, see the information illustrated in the Liberty seating section of our website. It is found under the custom option labeled "Frame Colors".
Is Liberty offered with adjustable arms?
Yes. Liberty is currently available in three configurations; armless, with fixed arms, and with height-adjustable arms.
