SwingSeat features a pivoting arm that can be securely mounted to any wall, casegood or sturdy vertical surface, and its swiveling tripod base ensures ease of movement while in use. According to BioFit spokesperson Judy Kolo-Rose, “In many lab environments, it is imperative that seating is readily available when it is needed. At the same time space is often at a premium. The SwingSeat is designed to be there when you need it and out of the way when you do not.” Available in a variety of chair and stool configurations, as well as a wide range of upholstery options, the SwingSeat features three glass-hub casters and is backed by an industry-leading 13-year warranty.

They are also available in Cleanroom and ESD options.

In addition, BioFit manufactures a full line of multipurpose carts perfect for transporting supplies and equipment throughout the laboratory. The carts are sturdy enough to move heavy equipment up to 500 pounds, yet are nimble enough to navigate through tight spaces.  Multipurpose carts are available in a variety of shelving configurations to meet the needs of the lab environment and are warranted to last 13 years!

BioFit’s commitment to ergonomics extends through its entire line of seating and mobile folding tables which are perfect for breakrooms, lunchrooms, conference rooms and everywhere that a work area needs flexibility of space use.
