Requirements of Waiting Room Seating
If you would prefer to use traditional waiting room chairs, we have products like the Windsor armchair, but we also have modular reception seating like the BRS Box Reception Seating. These seats are cushioned upholstered sofa style seats that can be pushed together or separated as required. This means that they are ideal for individuals or when put together, patients can sit with their children, friend, or spouse. We also suggest having individual chairs so that people can sit alone if they want to. For example, reception tub seating like the Canterbury High Back Tub chair is a smart and stylish alternative.
The lower level chairs and benches are fine for most people, but for older or disabled patients you will need something more appropriate. For those with limited mobility or weaker lower limbs, we have chairs with arms and those that have higher seats to make rising from a sitting position a little easier.
While you don’t expect your patients to be in the reception area for too long, sometimes this is unavoidable so we make sure that all our reception area chairs are comfortable for longer waiting times.
Occasionally, there is the need to have a larger chair because a patient is overweight and cannot fit in a narrower framed chair. We have a number of bariatric chairs for just this situation, most of which come with armrests to make it simpler to rise from.
In any healthcare setting, but most specifically in a high traffic area such as a reception or waiting room area, consideration must be given to the upholstery used on the chairs. You need durable fabric coverings, which of course we supply, as the waiting room furniture will need to put up with continued wear and tear, or one of our anti-bacterial vinyl coverings.
A medical waiting area will need to be kept as clean as possible as you need to protect against germs. Our anti-microbial and anti-fungal vinyl waiting room chairs can be easily cleaned and are resistant to common stains, moisture and bacteria. Our wipeable reception chairs ensure that you can quickly and easily clean up any spillages which may occur, so that your reception area once again becomes a comfortable and pleasant place to wait.
Additionally, all of the vinyl coverings are treated so that they resist microbial growth; another way in which our specially designed chairs and coverings can combat the spread of infection and germs. Also, for most of the chairs, the wood used in our furniture, as well as being microbe-resistant, is made from hard woods from sustainable sources.
