BioFit's New ArmorSeat(TM) Line of Ergonomic Chairs Offers "Industrial-Grade" Durability

Bowling Green, OH, October 29, 2008 - BioFit Engineered Products, an Ohio-based manufacturer and long-standing leader in the development of ergonomic seating solutions, launched its new ArmorSeat line of chairs this week. The culmination of more than 200 hours of research and development, these products are intended to replace the company's classic DuraGrain chairs in the industrial market, offering greater style, design and durability benefits than the original.

"The roots of the DuraGrain chair date back to the 1960s," reported Ed Metzger, president of BioFit. "Over time, as the general physical characteristics of users as well as movements to perform specific tasks evolved, so did our need to manufacture seating that would be highly functional in as many industrial environments as possible.

"Taking a top-down approach to design allowed us to build-in versatility while adapting the performance aspects of the new ArmorSeat series for a wide array of manufacturing, assembly, production and other industrial settings. Plus, it also allows us to offer a more attractive looking line of chairs." Metzger said.

ArmorSeat chairs include fully contoured lines, a waterfall front seat set at an incline of six degrees and innovative design elements that are not only eye-pleasing but functional in terms of ventilation and movement. In addition, the chairs are made of a recyclable polypropylene, which is air-fed into the mold by way of gas-assisted technology. It's a process that reduces the amount of material content in the chair while increasing the structural strength of the frame.

Metzger stated that the company was proud of the fact that it had been able to develop a new seating line that competes with some of the bigger names on style. In his estimation, ArmorSeat products represent a move to a higher-end design reflective of today's marketplace.

"BioFit is moving toward manufacturing products that architects can look at when designing everything from hand-assembly areas and work stations to break rooms, control terminals and beyond," Metzger forecast.
