Tips on Buying Green Office Furniture

discounted green office furniture for saleThe Four R’s in Recycling and Office Furniture: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Restore

 

Does it really matter if businesses choose to follow the four R’s of recycling? Well, there are many green steps a business can take that will make a big difference for a company business, the community and the planet.

Reduce
The first of the four recycling R’s is to reduce. When considering office purchases ask yourself: is there an option that is more recyclable, or has less packaging? For example, when looking to buy office furniture consider used office furniture for minimizing packaging. Buying used also saves the furniture from ending up in a landfill. In fact just (40) cubicles will divert one tractor-trailer load of furniture from the landfill.

Reuse
Your business may be due for a move, often this means new furniture to fit the new building. Instead of eliminating existing furniture, consider having it refurbished with new paint and fabric. Electrostatic painting can refinish any metal furniture such as filing cabinets and cubicle frames. Cubicle fabric is easily replaced to accommodate new building design aesthetics. Use a space planner to ensure the best fit of your newly refurbished furniture in your new space. A CAD design of your office is also helpful to design optimal work-flow for office efficiency

Recycle
If you decide to abandon your old furniture consider selling it back. Often you can get money or store credit when working with an office furniture dealer. The main goal would be to keep the furniture from going to a landfill. Remember to look for used office furniture when buying for the new office. You will find that you will save 40%-80% off retail list when buying used.

Restore
Restore the forth “R” in recycling is relatively new to but very important. A good business will protect their assets. Consider repairing, refinishing, re-purposing, or refinish assets before you decide to throw them away. All surfaces like metal and wood can be refinished and refurbished to like new conditions. If you have chairs, cabinets or desks that are broken look to have the repaired. Office Furniture Outlet has an on site repair service, which saves you time and money.

The Importance of Your Office Chair

Oftentimes, people don’t think quality office chairs fit into their budget, but if you sit in a chair 8+ hours a day, it needs to be the best chair. It makes sense to spend more on quality items that are used for such a large percentage of your life. Plus, investing in a quality chair means that it’ll last longer and you’ll be rewarded with many years of comfort! It’s important to choose a chair that will give you the support you need. Keep reading to learn the benefits of ergonomic chairs:

best-chairs

1. Pain Relief:

Ergonomic Chairs are used mainly to help prevent and relieve pain. Without the proper support provided by an ergonomic chair, extended sitting may result in lower back pain or muscle fatigue and exhaustion. In addition to pain, sitting in the wrong type of chair for an extended period of time can actually cause a variety of health problems or worsen existing conditions.

2. Proper Circulation:

Allowing blood to flow properly through your body is crucial, and the wrong chair can inhibit it. Most ergonomic chairs allow the seat position and height of the chair to adjust to the length of your legs. It’s important that your legs stay at a 90 degree angle to ensure proper circulation, so pick an ergonomic chair that lets you adjust the height and angle of your seat.

3. Support:

Your body has its own unique curves and areas in need of support and cushioning. Many ergonomic chairs are made from mesh, which will automatically mold to the contours of your body.

Read all of the Top 5 Reasons to Own an Ergonomic Chair here.

By sitting in an ergonomic office chair, you will be doing your body a huge favor. Luckily, office chairs don’t have to break the bank. At Office Furniture Outlet, we sell chairs for up to 60% off the retail price. A Herman Miller Aeron Chair, one of the most popular chairs, costs up to $1,200.00 new – We sell them for $499.99 each. Visit our showroom in Norfolk, Virginia to browse, sit in, and purchase a quality ergonomic office chair for less!

The Process Behind Used Goods

“When you donate them to a thrift store, their usefulness to you has reached the end of the road. But once at the store, their journey has only begun.”

Have you ever wondered what happens to thrift-store donations? The process actually has many similarities to the process for our used furniture. There are several steps to take before the furniture hits our showroom floor.

First, we decide whether the furniture is able to be sold or not. Then the chairs are sanitized, and desks and other pieces of wooden furniture get refinished. Any other necessary repairs are made as well.

Like Goodwill, we strive to be as green as possible. When we receive metal items that are unusable, such as damaged file cabinets, we recycle them.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!

Interesting Use For a Filing Cabinet

Yes, You Can Build a Smoker from a Filing Cabinet

Day breaks over the backyards of Brooklyn. The birds in the trees are tweeting the morning gossip. The sky is unblemished except for the faint but steady upward trickle of smoke puffing from the top drawer of an industrial filing cabinet standing, incongruously, among the flowerpots and planted herbs of my little urban garden.

The displaced piece of office furniture is an improvised smoking chamber: a junky old cabinet I’d bought and hacked according to loosely described plans I’d found in various BBQ-curious corners of the Internet. The bottoms of the metal drawers have been ripped out and grill grates set in their place. On the racks are laid sides of salt-cured salmon; below, a tray of wood pellets slowly burns to ash, filling the drawers with fragrant cumulus clouds of transformative smoke.

What You Need To Know ABout Electrostatic Painting

Our sister company, Electrokote, offers electrostatic painting at our warehouse or on site.  Electrostatic Painting is one of the ways that we  recycle used office furniture back into the market place.  Electrokote will take a used metal file cabinet and paint it using the electrostatic process to make it look “like new” again. We can also take several mismatched file cabinets and paint them all to match an existing interior office design. This saves the cabinet from the dump and allows the cabinet to fit in perfectly with its new surroundings.

b-a

Below is a great article that describes the electrostatic painting process:


ELECTROSTATIC PAINTING

Electrostatic painting employs the basic principle of electrostatic opposites attract to achieve durable and strong finish on metals and other materials. The most notable advantage of electrostatic painting over conventional liquid paints is that it leaves no runs, drips, bubbles or sags. The operating principle of this painting method involves dry powder, made of resins and pigments, being pneumatically supplied from a reservoir directed to a spray gun. The surface to be painted is grounded while the paint powder is charged with a high voltage at low amperage at exiting the spraying gun. On reaching the surface to be painted the powder particles are attracted to the grounded surface and firmly held there. The material is then taken into a curing oven where the powder is melted and fused to give a smooth coat.Electrostatic painting machines are classified into three categories namely; airless type; air atomized types and rotating discs and bells type. The discs type employs high speed discs to atomize the coating resulting in a more fine coating and the paint particles are well directed to the grounded surface. This type is the most suitable for applying paints that are difficult to disperse and paints with high solids. Electrostatic painting is disadvantaged by the faraday cage effect. This effect involves the tendency of the charged particles to get deposited around cavities entrances.

Electrostatic Painting of Railings

HOW IT WORKS

The principle of electrostatics is analogous to magnetism. An electrically charged object produces an electrostatic field and two objects with opposite charges will attract each other. An object with more electrons than the surrounding is taken to be negatively charged while the one with fewer electrons than its surrounding is positively charged. This forms the scientific basis on which electrostatic painting operates. An atomizing electrode is located at the spraying tip. It is here the paint particles receive extra electrons and become negatively charged. During spraying the charges are dissipated through the ground and return to the power supply completing the electric circuit. The path of the paint particles is influenced by the electrostatic field. Over spray is drastically reduced since the charged paint particles are directly directed to the grounded surface of the item being painted. A phenomenon known as wrap allows the sprayed particles to be deposited to the back of the item.

PAINTING

After setting up is done, the object is grounded and the paint formulation is positively charged, the painting starts. The positively charged powder paint formulation is sprayed on the grounded item. The item being oppositely charged draws the paint toward its surface and the attraction is so strong that the paint is pulled across to coat the whole surface. The process is safe and no protection gear is required. However, some unpleasant odors may be produced during the painting process and it is thus recommended that it should be carried out on the outdoors. This method of painting uses no solvent and makes it environmentally friendly. Electrostatic painting is durable and there is a range of formulations such as urethane, polyester, epoxy or a hybrid of two of these. The choice of the best formulation is dictated by the intended use of the item to be painted. Epoxy formulation is the best choice for chemical and corrosion protection and for resistance to solvents. Polyester and urethane are chosen where a superior exterior durability is called for. Polarizable solvents are used to formulate all paints, primers and coatings sprayed by electrostatic painting. Materials such as plastic, ceramics, glass and rubber cannot be painted electrostatically since it is not possible to ground them electrically. There is a whole spectrum of color glosses, antiques and metallic effects available for electrostatic painting. The mixing of the powder paint formulation and the catalyst compounds should be carried out by the manufacturer. Computerized matching techniques allow the manufacturer to come up with a specific mix depending on your taste. This may take time and may cost you extra.

BENEFITS OF ELECTROSTATIC PAINTING

There is a high transfer efficiency achieved by electrostatic painting. This high transfer efficiency reduces the volume of paint used. Further benefits of electrostatic painting include reduced emissions of volatile organic compounds used as solvents in conventional paints, reduced hazardous air pollutants emissions, reduced waste generation, and reduced exposure during application. Less maintenance is called for the pain reservoir for pollution control. Electrostatic painting requires high capital cost and regular maintenance of the spraying equipment as needed.
