If you’ve read our previous blogs you’ll be familiar with the ins and outs of setting up a home office, and how to set up an ergonomic home office. But all that work setting up your home office is for nought if you don’t buy good quality home office furniture from a reputable home office furniture supplier. The benefits of working from home are easily lost if your furniture is not ergonomic, it is wobbly and just doesn’t last and stand up to wear and tear. Ukhuni meets all of these criteria and more. Our quality Home Habitat office furniture range is not only beautiful and stylish it is also long-lasting and hard-wearing.
Engineered for Durability and Stability
In the competitive industry of office furniture, guaranteeing customers well-engineered products is essential. It’s not only about ensuring the satisfaction of our end-users, but it’s also about the pride we have in our work. Through research and testing, we have been able to assess the performance of our products for their intended use to ensure their durability and stability. All of our products are carefully engineered and certified to this end.
For office equipment to fare well under the circumstances of its intended use, it does have to be able to bear a significant load. Ukhuni has not underestimated that normal office and home office circumstances do include the ability to support heavy loads. The combined weight of books, computers and other heavy office equipment quickly add up. Some tables and cabinets may buckle under the pressure simply because they are not intended for office or home office use. Our range of office furniture and our Home Habitat range has been developed with structural integrity in mind, and so perform accordingly. Our products come with levelling foot ferrals to compensate for uneven floors and stabilise them.
Premium Quality Local Board
The board used for all of the wooden surfaces in Ukhuni furniture is made using leading technology to meet the standards of our office and home office furniture requirements. Our board is manufactured in accordance with the Forestry Stewardship Council’s (FSC) regulations.
The density and stiffness of our high-density particleboard and plywood ensure optimal structural strength. This is so that your furniture does not buckle under the pressure of heavy loads and continuous use and you can reap the benefits of working from home.
High Wear Laminate
Work desks are unique in that they have to survive constant use. Friction caused by the moving of a computer mouse alone quickly shows wear on normal home furniture. As much as you might have to substitute your work desk with a dining room table, even temporary use will show after only a couple of months. All of the Ukhuni furniture work surfaces and storage units are covered in high wear laminate which is made to handle such constant wear and keep looking good. Our artisanal laminate is also designed for optimal use of raw materials to minimise waste, making it a sustainable and environmentally friendly product.
High Impact ABS Edging
Without quality edging, your premium office and home office furniture can easily be destroyed through wear and tear. Desk, table, and cabinet edges become chipped and peel away from the furniture itself. High impact ABS edging is a durable and sought-after design feature, which is in part why Ukhuni uses it. This robust solution is impact resistant and it has a history of successful application in the furniture industry, making it perfect for your home office furniture. The other reason we use ABS edging is that it can be recycled, so it also meets our environmentally friendly approach to manufacturing.
High-Quality Runners on All Drawers
How often is it that the runners on your drawers become stuck or just don’t move as smoothly as they should? It’s annoying enough when the drawer is filled with your personal belongings, but when you need to get to important work items, you just don’t have the time to fuss with it. So that you don’t have to deal with stuck drawers and runners that don’t run smoothly, Ukhuni uses only high-quality runners on all drawers to ensure smooth opening and closing. You will notice these runners on the Ladder Desk and the Tebette Desk.
Powder Coated Metal Components
At first, you may not notice the wear and tear on the metal components of your furniture but as with many inferior products, chips and scratches become evident within only a few months. The metal components on Ukhuni furniture, however, are powder coated to prevent such wear and tear.
Ergonomically Designed Chairs and Desks
One of Ukhuni’s biggest concerns is that of our users’ health, wellbeing, engagement and productivity. To this end, our chairs and desks are designed to meet your ergonomic needs at home. Through the precise science of ergonomics and the man-machine interface (MMI), our furniture ensures better health, improved wellbeing, increased engagement and sustainable productivity. The effects of ergonomic furniture cannot be underestimated.
Our ergonomic desks meet all of the required dimensions to ensure that you do not strain yourself, they support good posture and offer lumbar support. Home furniture such as a dining room table is not ergonomic and may lead to back and shoulder pain.
Our ergonomic desks:
- Ladder Desk
- Tebette Desk
- Studio Desk
- Ilean Desk
- Simply Desk
- Jacari Desk
- Just Jane Desk
- Up&Down Desk
- Integra Desk
As with our desks, Ukhuni’s ergonomic chairs are also designed for good posture and lumbar support. By simply being able to adjust the height, backrest and seat depth of your chair, you can avoid the aches and pains which you might feel otherwise.
Some office and home office furniture require full assembly which may be more difficult and time-consuming than advertised. All of Ukhuni’s products are semi-assembled which means they require minimal assembly, so that setting up your home office is fast and easy. Our flat-packed or semi-assembled furniture will arrive with the tool you need, and a low component count. This way you aren’t overwhelmed by 100s of screws and other pieces which inevitably become confusing.
Some brands send lamentable packs of screws and other components which are easily misplaced, leaving more room for mistakes.
