As lots of customers know we send out lots of sample chairs. These are for you to try out and make a decision before you buy. This involves shipping them around the country, and they take a bit of a wear and tear. Like our customers we prefer to repair and refresh the seating when a full replacement isn’t necessary. Our Replacement Pads are perfect for this. As we have lots of enquiries and orders for replacements we thought we’d show you how easy they are to swap over.
This is an R53 Millennium chair. The frame is still in great condition so it just needs some new pads after a bit of damage to the back in transit. On this model it’s simple with four screws in the back pad and four for the seat. If you have an electric drill this is super quick and easy. If not a screwdriver is fine, you’ll just need a bit more elbow grease! Once removed carefully line up the new seat pad and screw straight into the board. For the back pad check the pad is pushed up inside the frame to the correct position. If you are using a drill try not to overscrew into the boards (personally I use the drill to get the screws in most of the way, then use a screwdriver to tighten them up). From red tweed to the Linear Ink our sample is now ready to go back out for testing.
