National Business Furniture has added a heated office chair to its exclusive NBF Signature Series line to address the issue of cold temperatures in the workplace hindering employee comfort and productivity.

JANUARY 18, 2016 – MILWAUKEE, WISCONSIN – National Business Furniture (NBF) is providing relief to cold office employees everywhere by adding a heated office chair to its vast product offering. The aptly named Comfortemp chair offers personalized support both in the way of ergonomic comfort and temperature control. NBF teamed up with Gentherm, the leading provider of heated seat technology in the automotive industry, to bring warmth into the office. The result is an office chair that goes above and beyond basic task chair features, providing employees with a way to stay even more comfortable and focused at work.


The control panel on the Comfortemp chair is easy to use, and it provides the ability for users to heat the seat and back or just the back at either a high or low setting. Not only does this allow the employee to warm up, but heat radiating from the back of the chair can also help soothe a sore back. For additional support, Comfortemp also comes with ergonomic features that include seat height, arm height, arm width, tilt tension and tilt lock controls.


On top of its ergonomic benefits, the Comfortemp chairs are also energy efficient and safe. Each chair runs on a rechargeable battery pack that can be recharged overnight and used for a full eight hour work day on a single charge. An auto-shutoff occupancy censor turns off the heating element when the chair is not in use, making it safe and energy efficient.


The ultimate goal in combining these features was to design a chair that pleases both employees and employers alike. Employees will enjoy a warmer, more comfortable workspace, while employers will enjoy a safe, budget-friendly seating option that will keep employees happy, helping to boost productivity in the process.


Kent Anderson, president of NBF, is excited about the office solutions that the Comfortemp chairs will provide, especially in the winter months.


“We developed this chair to cure a very common office problem – inconsistent air temperature. I often get feedback from employees who are consistently cold, but the problem is that other people around them are just fine. This chair solves that problem by providing a comfortable temperature for each individual,” Anderson says.


The Comfortemp chair has been added to NBF’s line of exclusive office furniture—The NBF Signature Series. It will be part of NBF’s Ships Today program, meaning that both the fabric upholstery and faux leather varieties of the chair will ship same-day when ordered before 3:00 PM CST.


With the mission to improve every workplace, NBF offers over a thousand products that ship today, exclusive products from its NBF Signature Series line, expert service, a dedicated outside sales force and an unbeatable lifetime guarantee.
