Office Chair Racing?!

On Your Chairs, Get Set, GO!

A group of 64 men put their office chairs to the ultimate test on Saturday, as they took part in the 3rd annual German Championship office chair race in Bad Konig, Hesse!  Some entrants for the race had travelled all the way from places like Luxembourg, Cologne and Stuttgart to take part in the fun!  

All armed with helmets, elbow protectors and knee pads, the men went head to head in the 200m chair race- some racers even reached speeds of 22mph!  

The office chairs were allowed to be modified, but with the strictest rules- the men were allowed to fit inline skate wheels and handles to their chairs but no motorised aids are allowed.  The chairs were allowed to be propelled along the way with feet or hands, but motorised chairs were forbidden.

The victor was Pierre Feller from Luxembourg, who completed the run in an amazing 26.95 seconds.  The competition organiser Rene Karg commented, 'his lying-down technique was amazing!'  Heiko Winter also won a prize for best designed chair!  His chair had been decked out with a horse's head and a saddle, and Heiko topped off the look bedecked in a cowboy costume!  It certainly looks like the entrants had a lot of fun!

Looking for a stylish reception unit?

Meet Receptiv Refreshed!

Our Receptiv reception range is one of our most popular products amongst our clients because it is such a cost-effective reception system which offers great flexibility to businesses.  The beauty of this range is that it looks a lot more expensive than it actually is; it is composed of MFC sections which can be complimented nicely with glass counters.  

These modular units allow us to design you a reception to suit any shaped area, whether you want simple base units, or would like to add shelves or top units.  The range is available at virtually any budget you need, and we can design the layouts to suit almost any reception space- whether you'd like curves or straight units.  We are also able to offer modular units which are DDA compliant, in order to aid companies in making facilities suitable for disabled people.

We've now breathed some extra life and style in to this wonderful range, with brand new MFC finishes to choose from.  After much interest, we can now offer a stylish black melamine finish, which can be complimented nicely with modesty panels in a zesty orange or lime green finish.  These modesty panels also give a wonderfully fresh and clean look to the reception units if they are mixed with a white MFC finish- the possibilities are endless!
