This presentation will provide an overview of all BIFMA standards being developed, with an emphasis on new standards for the large occupants of office seating (250-400 lbs.). Research regarding weight and size categories, product performance expectations, and applications with respect to seating will be presented through the lens of meeting the changing needs of a growing number of today’s workforce.

Review the details of the new ANSI/BIFMA X5.11-2015 Large Occupant Seating standard and what it means in office and institutional applications. Then see how that compares to the newly proposed Healthcare/Bariatric seating standard under development. Consider the changes in human weight over the last several years and what this should mean for designers. Get up to speed on this trend in human weights so you can accurately serve clients.
