Tuffy shelf computer desk made by the H. Wilson company

Tuffy shelf computer desk made by the H. Wilson companyThis is a tuffy shelf computer desk made by the H. Wilson company. It is constructed from an engineered thermoplastic resin, injection molded, that will not chip, warp, crack, rust or peel. There are 2 steel reinforcements molded into the thick top shelf for extra strength. All tuffy shelves have a safety retaining lip and a raised texture surface that enhances product placement and ensures minimal sliding. Electrical attachment is recessed to insure passage through most standard doorways and other tight spots.

The H. Wilson company, founded in 1959 by a visionary named Howard Wilson, is the premier manufacturer of utility carts, mobile cabinets, audio visual carts, video tables, computer work stations, overhead projector tables, TV and speaker mounting systems, literature racks, tripods and more. It all started back in the 1950's when Howard was working for Radiant Screen Company in Chicago as the Regional Sales Manager. Howard had a particular affinity for the audio-visual portion of his responsibilities and marketing efforts of Radiant Screen. When he decided to open his own business, he knew it would be in the AV market.

Howard looked for a product for which there was a need but not presently being made and supplied.
In 1959, before he introduced his Rear Projection Unit, Howard founded H. Wilson and built a modest dealer base selling projector tables. The projector tables were all he sold until July of 1960, when at the NAVA convention he publicly introduced his Rear Projection Unit. By this time, Howard had a solid nucleus of dealers working with him. The Rear Projection Unit was eagerly accepted by the educational market and ultimately went on the be the first in a long line of H. Wilson's very successful products.

Howard Wilson sold his growing business to EBSCO Industries of Birmingham, Alabama
in October of 1976. While H. Wilson is strongly identified with plastic manufacturing technologies, their steel manufacturing capabilities are second to none.

Howard's greatest achievement came in the early 1970's when H. Wilson was the first company to successfully apply the emerging technology of structural foam injection molding as an alternative for manufacturing steel mobile carts. Structural foam is nearly indestructible, and it made shipping disassembled products practical and cost-effective.

H. Wilson serves world markets through leading audio-visual dealers, microcomputer dealers, school equipment distributors, library equipment distributors, office products dealers and other specialty furniture channels of distribution.

Guide to choose an adjustable desk for your office

Adjustable Office DeskThere are many factors that come into play when choosing the right desk for your office. One of the most important factors in choosing office desks is the reputation of suppliers. Contractors offer different services such as delivery, installation, planning, design, logistics, and storage. Each of these services is important to organize your office space.

It seems very rare to find a home office that doesn't have a computer of some kind. A computer desk is an important piece of furniture for any home office as it's going to form the cornerstone of your working environment. Here's some tips for the next time you go shopping for a computer desk.

A height adjustable desk is the pinnacle of computer desks for your office. For what? Because we all come in different shapes and sizes and one desk generally doesn't fit all. If you can't find a height adjustable desk then make sure you have more than ample leg room underneath the desk; your legs should not be cramped or restricted in any way. Having a desk that's the wrong height can make working on it an absolute nightmare. It can lead to bad posture while working.

The latest trend in ergonomic office space is the adjustable height desk. Also called as sit stand desk, these desks give employers and their people the option of having a customized office workstation without having to lay cost on a different variety of systems. Once you choose a design that you think will fit the office, your employees can have a uniform table design and still give them the ability to customize of these table.

Some computer desks come with a sliding tray for your keyboard and mouse. Make sure that your keyboard is between 28 and 30 inches above the floor. Any lower than that and you're going to wind up slumped over your keyboard whilst typing which is going to lead to back problems and, potentially, repetitive strain injury (RSI).

The monitor also needs to be a suitable distance from your eyes to prevent eye strain. How to measure this? Simply sit upright in your office chair and stretch your arm outwards. The screen should be positioned at the far end of your reach i.e. you should be just about able to touch the screen with your fingertips.

The computer obviously has a monitor of some kind and the height the monitor is placed at whilst you're working is equally important. Mmost new computers are only sold with flatscreen monitors anyway; most of the new LCD monitors (flatscreen) are height adjustable so getting this level right shouldn't be a problem with this type of screen. This will prevent you looking upwards or downwards while you work.

Another key point with a good computer desk is storage space. There's nothing more annoying than having to stop what you're doing and go searching for a stapler or notepad. Working space is another key factor. You won't always just be typing at your desk. Your desk should have enough room for this and more. Many people buy a desk without taking this aspect of working from home into account - you can never have enough space on you desk; more is always better.

So do not take the task of buying your computer desk for granted - it's an essential item in any office so make sure that you're making the right choice first time around. Although choosing office equipment is largely dependent on cost, you must not underrate the value that office furniture brings to enhance a positive working atmosphere. Do not underestimate the rewards of a happy and productive workforce.

About Ergonomic Office Furniture: Office Table

About Ergonomic Office TableOffice ergonomics deserves to be treated separately from general (industrial) ergonomics. The principles are the same, but there are so many subtle differences and different products that it's best to specialize.

Ergonomic table was born with the beginning of the human science “Ergonomics”. The main goal of the ergonomic computer table is to provide proper adjustments for the placement of the elements in order to provide maximum comfort to the user.

The ergonomic table is a modern table, which provides good comfortable postures to handle things at the workstation. These ergonomic tables provide a solution to the Repetitive strain injury and Carpal tunnel syndrome. An ergonomic table is the important thing to be considered for setting up a home office to a corporate office.

Ergonomic table should be at same distance from your eyes as to the monitor to avoid the frequent changes of focus and you should be able you to look from one to the other without moving your neck or back. It should support the document holder. Place the phone on the side of your non-dominant hand.

The Position your table lamp on the ergonomic table should be so that it illuminates source documents without causing either glare on the computer screen or direct illumination to your eyes. It should be stable and adjustable. A document holder should be used if documents are referred to during keying.

The area underneath the ergonomic table should always be clean/uncluttered to accommodate the user’s legs and allow for stretching. The work surface should have a matte finish to minimize glare or reflections. A footrest should be used if, after adjusting the height of the chair, feet do not rest flat on the floor.

The ergonomic computer table should be able to adjust the height and angle of the keyboard tray, monitor shelf and other elements. The tabletop should be organized so that frequently used objects are close to the user to avoid excessive extended reaching. If a fixed-height table is used, add a keyboard tray that adjusts vertically to provide added adjustability.

Here is an excellent site collects and publishes some "handouts" that have been used widely in training courses for office workers and ergonomists and health care professionals who work with office workers. The handouts have received good reviews with respect to their clarity, objectivity, and scientific basis. Some have been published in slightly different form in book chapters and manuals.

About Ergonomic Office Furniture: Office Chair

About Ergonomic Office Furniture: Office ChairErgonomics is the scientific discipline concerned with designing according to the human needs. It is a science embodying many concepts. Ergonomics involves information to fully understand those characteristics of office furniture that can play a serious role in contributing to MSD conditions. It is the profession that applies theory, principles, data and methods to design in order to optimize human well-being and overall system performance. The field is also called human engineering or human factors engineering. Information derived from ergonomists contributes to the design and evaluation of tasks, jobs, products, work environments and systems in order to make them compatible with the needs, abilities and limitations of people.

Nowadays there are a lot of people who spend the most part of their days in office and the things which surround them are very important. As usual we are sitting for the whole day and may feel back pain in the end of it, or even just at the beginning. Of course, all these influence greatly on working process and our labor productivity. So, it is very important to choose the modern ergonomic office furniture, which is appropriate for you. By the way, we all are different, I mean, height, weight and age. All these factors influence greatly on the ergonomic office furniture we should choose.

First of all, let's talk about the most important piece of ergonomic office furniture – a chair. Ergonomic office chairs are extremely popular in today’s office environment. Many employees find that they are sitting for more than eight hours per day while at work. It is important that ergonomic office chairs be used to reduce shoulder, back, and neck strain. While ergonomic office chairs may cost more than a standard office chair, the initial cost is a wise investment and worthwhile in increasing productivity and preventing serious injury.

Nowadays the manufacturers offer you a great diversity of different models and styles. Of course, color and various accessories are also important for your good mood, but comfort is the most important thing, while you are choosing a chair. As we have already mentioned above, you will spend the most part of your day sitting in this chair, so try it and rely upon your impression. If you feel comfortably sitting in this piece of ergonomic office furniture, don't hesitate and buy it.

There are many important factors to consider when distinguishing between proper ergonomic office chairs and common chairs. Some of the features that should be looked for are an adjustable seat, proper lumbar support, a backrest, adequate seat width and depth, appropriate arm rests, and the ability to swivel.

One of the basics of proper office ergonomics is ensuring that a chair’s seat height allows the user’s feet to remain flat on the floor. It is also essential that a chair offer proper lumbar support, which fits the inward curve of the lower back. Additionally, a chair must have a seat that is comfortable after sitting in it for a long period of time, and armrests that allow the shoulders to remain in a relaxed position.

But, of course, there are several tips, concerning the features of contemporary ergonomic office furniture. So, it is considered that a person should not sit straight all the time, it may lead to pain in muscles and backbone. We offer you advice to purchase a chair with tilt mechanism. So, you will be able to change the position of your body within a day and relax you muscles.

The other question is the computer desk ergonomic office furniture. If you are typing during the most part of your day, you should follow several tips, in order to prevent neck pains. So, first of all, you should sit correctly at the table. In other words, the keyboard should be on the edge of a table and you should sit strait and don't cross the legs. At the beginning it is not very convenient, but you will learn the advantages in the course of time. A monitor should be located “one outstretched arm” from you.

There are many new and emerging alternatives available to the traditional ergonomic office chair. Several types of chairs place the user in an atypical position. They may take some getting used to over time, but they are a good alternative for someone who experiences discomfort or chronic back pain.

Fed up with living in the same space as the table saws, Jonah moved City Joinery to Dumbo in 1998, where a workshop and small showroom could accommodate the growing business. By 2004 the company expanded into its current 6000 square foot home on Jay Street.

City Joinery was founded by a Harvard-trained former architect whose design influences range from Mackintosh to the Danish modernists. Continuing this legacy of designer-craftspeople, they enjoy the challenge of balancing practicality and artistry. And as with forerunners such as Ruhlmann and William Morris, they take pride in cultivating relationships with our clients, in crafting the objects that will inhabit their homes or offices for generations.

City Joinery furniture captures the vitality of our time. Deeply respectful of traditional technique and style, their design approach also questions and enlivens some of the very traditions it employs. Yet because of the great attention spent on details, the richness of the materials they use and the deep, satisfying luster in the finish, the furniture stands outside the whims of fashion trends. It is as much of our time as it is timeless.

Their designs are contemporary: pared down forms, taut lines, unexpected and sometimes contrasting surfaces. They work primarily in solid wood, not veneer, and often in combination with other materials such as metal, glass, upholstery and acrylic.

From dining tables, beds, and armoires to desks, dressers, and seating, we have a large array of designs. They make myriad variations on these in different woods, sizes and with different details. They can also create a new design specific to a customer's needs, space constraints and tastes.

City Joinery furniture is made from solid wood because, unlike most veneered substrates, it has integrity, depth and strength. Their furniture is carefully designed to allow the wood to breathe with changes in humidity. They seek out woods that have subtle color variations and grain patterns and they prefer to finish them in a way that emphasizes these natural subtleties.

Each piece they make gets a thoughtful, careful approach. This shows in the finished product and its quality appreciates over time. City Joinery hopes the clients will have an ongoing sense of wonder about the furniture, and that their enjoyment grows as the design's complexity, and depth of character, is revealed over time.

With many clients, the furniture design process begins with sketching out ideas together. With others, they make pieces from their catalog, generally in a wood species of their choosing. Trained in the art of traditional woodworking, they build each piece by hand relying on such time-honored practices as dovetail joints and hand-rubbed finishes. The furniture will last for a long time, offering generations of utility and pleasure.
