Techline has your back and your seat covered

Taylor your chairs to suit your style.  Chair function should include proper lumbar support, height adjustment, forward tilt and caster size.  Sit in a dining room chair for eight hours and you’ll understand the need for an “ergonomic” chair.  For best back support, the chair’s height and back should be adjustable.  Be sure that your feet are planted firmly at all times and that the chair supports the full length of your thighs in order not to interrupt circulation in yours legs.  If you must work for prolonged periods in front a computer, periodically raise or lower your chair seat to change your viewing angle and thus relieve fatigues in your neck.

Forever Warranty

Not many people read warranties – until they have to.  It’s the fine print.  Lawyers finesse the language to make it absolutely correct and mostly eye-glazing.  Ours is no exception.  But here’s the good news, and really all you need to know.  Our quality allows us to promise that you’ll never have to worry about your VIA chair again.  Forever.

We cover ALL components of your chair with a Forever Warranty ™ – and that includes the “happily ever after”.  So feel free to delve into the warranty details below, or save it for a rainy day.  In any event, we’ve got you covered.  Sleep soundly, and sit pretty.  Forever.

True (48 Hour) Commitment

At VIA, we’re always mindful of the clock.  It’s a tradition at VIA, and it’s so deeply engrained in our culture that we sometimes forget how special and important it is to be a company committed to a 48-hour turnaround on every chair.  Heck, it’s in our DNA.  It’s just what we do.  We know that many other companies in our industry now have followed suit and offer a quick-ship program, too.  But in most instances, when you study the fine print, there are confining limitations in the materials or models that can ship within the promised window of time.

That’s why we call our promise “True 48”.  No limitations, No exceptions.  No marketing hoo-hah.

It’s as simple as this:  Every VIA chair ships within 48-hours.  The order comes in on Monday by noon Pacific Time; the chairs are on the truck on Wednesday.  No restrictions on vocabulary – every chair, every option, every fabric, every leather.  We’ve engineered our products and built our production line to be spectacularly efficient – and trained our VIA people to be the most responsive and responsible team in our industry.  And this excellence shows.

For you, this means you have access to our outstanding American-Made chairs when you need them, with the service you expect, from a company committed to doing business the right way.

Beautiful and affordable design.  Uncompromising comfort, quality and reliability.  All in true 48 hours.

Good Ergonomics in the Workplace

starBurstSafety Fact:
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
A painful and often debilitating swelling of the tendons in the wrists results overuse of the hands and wrists.

To understand the best way to set up a computer workstation or computer terminal, it is helpful to understand the concept of neutral body positioning. This is a comfortable working posture in which your joints are naturally aligned.  Working with the body in a neutral position reduces stress and strain on the muscles, tendons, and skeletal system and reduces your risk of developing a musculoskeletal disorder (MSD). The following are important considerations when attempting to maintain neutral body postures while working at the computer workstation:

  • Hands, wrists and forearms are straight, in-line and roughly parallel to the floor.
  • Head is level or bent slightly forward, forward facing, and balanced. Generally it is in line with the torso.
  • Shoulders are relaxed and upper arms hang normally at the side of the body.
  • Elbows stay in close to the body and are bent between 90 and 120 degrees.
  • Feet are fully supported by floor or footrest.
  • Back is fully supported with appropriate lumbar support when sitting vertical or leaning back slightly.
  • Thighs or hips are supported by a well-padded seat and generally parallel to the floor.
  • Knees are about the same height as the hips with the feet slightly forward.
  • Stand up and walk around for a few minutes periodically.

Regardless of how good your working posture is, working in the same posture or sitting still for prolonged periods is not healthy.  You should change your working position frequently throughout the day by making small adjustments to your chair or backrest and stretching your fingers, hands, arms, and torso throughout the day.

The four reference postures (below) are good examples of body posture changes that all provide neutral positioning for the body.

The torso is vertical or slightly reclined and the legs are vertical.

The user’s torso and neck are straight and recline between 105 and 120 degrees from the thighs.
