tCentric Hybrid by egroCentric
Features an airy mesh seat through innovative technology.
The tCentric Hybrid combines breathable mesh fabric with supportive ergonomic features to create a classic in the making. Although mesh is a light hygienic fabric, many office chair manufacturers avoid using it for the seat because of it stretches overtime, which creates pressure points behind users’ thighs and limits circulation. EgroCentric uses a patent-pending Airless Cushion Technology to protect the mesh from being over stressed, offering better long-term ergonomic support. It also reduces tension in the upper body with 3 levels of adjustability for the armrest . The lumbar support offers 5” of back height adjustment, allowing users to create the perfect alignment. Backed with a 12 year warranty, you can’t go wrong with the tCentric Hybrid!
