If it doesn’t comply with the ADA, we don’t make it. And if it doesn’t follow best ergonomic practices, why even use it?
Given the wide variation in physical size and ability level among the working population, POPULAS furniture is designed to adapt to all people. Our products directly impact your work style and allow you to perform at your personal best.
ANSI HFES requirements and recommendations are based on accepted human factors, ergonomics research and established professional practices. The standards’ goal is to match the user to the proper equipment when it comes to work styles, fluctuation in task content, and worker physiology.
POPULAS designs meet the ANSI/HFES100-2007 standards for the configurations of computer workstations, and the user to adjust his/her posture easily and often.
POPULAS hand-crank, powered, and knob adjustment systems are easy to identify, manipulate, and access from reclined, upright, declined and standing postures. Each mode allows quick, smooth height adjustment without intruding into leg and foot clearance spaces when not in use.
POPULAS products have a fail-safe and control locking mechanisms to prevent inadvertent movement. Our desks, computer workstations, and tables provide adequate leg and foot clearance and do not hinder the foot, leg, or knee as you change posture throughout your workday.
In addition to meeting the ANSI/HFES100-2007 standards outlined in sections 5 & 8, POPULAS workstations, tables, and desks have also been designed to meet or exceed the requirements outlined in the American National Standard Institute document A117.1; as well as the code of regulations by the Department of Justice for ADA Standards and Accessible Design 28 part 36, sections 4.2.4 and 4.32.
