WarrantyThe Think Chair comes with a limited lifetime warranty on its base and frame, a 10-year warranty on its pneumatic cylinder and 5 years on its upholstery.
The Steelcase Think Chair comes with a variety of warranties to guarantee your investment and your confidence in the product. Steelcase is one of the finest manufacturers of furniture in the world, and they always make sure to stand behind their products with the very best warranties. A great warranty on an office chair like Think is worth a lot, not only monetarily, but in terms of security and confidence. When you buy a Think Chair from Smart Furniture and Steelcase, you not only get a great product, you get a great assurance that if there's ever a problem or an obstacle with the chair you can't overcome, you're protected with a great warranty.
The Steelcase Think comes with three separate warranties, each insuring a different part of your chair.
- The limited lifetime warranty on the base and frame of the Think Chair.
As a great value, this warranty is practically incalculable. Over the course of the rest of your lifetime (or, alternatively, the lifetime of the Think Chair you own), you'll never have to worry about losing money on repair or replacement when it comes to the base and frame of the product. You won't find lifetime warranties from just any furniture company, nor with just any chair. Steelcase and the Think Chair are special entities, committed to the best and only the best, and that includes longevity. As long as you own the Think, you'll never have to worry about the cost of replacing the base or the frame, perhaps the two most important parts of any chair.
- 10 year warranty on the pneumatic cylinder of the Steelcase Think Chair.
Another great part, another great warranty. If you have any problems with your pneumatic cylinder, if it ever needs to be replaced within the next ten years, you've got nothing to worry about. Now, what the heck is the pneumatic cylinder? The pneumatic cylinder on a Steelcase Think Chair is a cylinder that creates force in response to movement. It does this in response to the force of compressed gas (air). Your Think Chair depends on the pneumatic cylinder for various adjustments and tasks, and it's an extremely vital part to have the full Think Chair experience. A ten year warranty is truly excellent when it comes to a part like this, and you can buy the Think Chair with confidence knowing Steelcase has your back when it comes to the pneumatic cylinder.
- 5 year warranty on upholstery.
The upholstery of your Think Chair is, of course, the first thing you see. Its color and texture will be chosen by the user in Smart Furniture three minute design tool, and these will be the outward face of the chair. However, we all know how easy it is to rip, discolor, and otherwise damage your upholstery, no matter what product it's on. It's quite impressive, therefore, that Steelcase is so confident in the quality and durability of its product that they offer a five year warranty on it. A five year warranty on upholstery (again, the outward face of your chair) is truly excellent. You can buy the Think Chair with real confidence, knowing that for the next 1825 days, you won't have to worry about the upholstery.
So what's the real-time value of the Think Chair over the course of it's several warranties? In other words, how much will it cost you, per day, to enjoy the fantastic comfort, elegance, engineering, conscientiousness and fun of the Think Chair for as long as it's insured? To do this, we'll break out the three insured parts, assigned 60 percent of the Think's value to base and frame, 20 percent to upholstery, and 10 percent to the pneumatic cylinder.
- Limited lifetime warranty on base and frame.
The base and frame are probably to two most integral parts of your Think Chair, so the lifetime warranty is deeply assuring. But, what's a lifetime? Depending on how long you choose to keep the chair, the cost per day shakes out this way:
Steelcase Think Base and Frame Warranty Value:
5 Years: 22 cents a day (60 percent of Think's cost divided by 1825, the number of days in a five year span)
10 Years: 11 cents a day
15 Years: 7.3 center a day
20 Years: 5.5 cents a day
That's an undeniably great value. All the comfort and increased productivity offered by Think for as low as a nickel a day.
- Ten year warranty on the pneumatic cylinder.
The pneumatic cylinder is essential to the continued operation of your Think Chair. It powers your functions and adjustments. And Steelcase guarantees it for ten years. The cost?
Think Chair Pneumatic Cylinder Warranty Value:
5 Years: 18 cents a day (this is, of course, if you get rid of your Think Chair before the 10 year warranty runs out
10 Years- life of the warranty: just 9 cents a day
- Five Year Warranty of Think Upholstery
Your Think Chair upholstery is the outward face of your chair, the surface on which you sit, work, and recline. It's the surface that will absorb the punishment of years of sitting, twisting, drinking and eating, not to mention the random elements of office furniture and staff. The upholstery has to look great for your Think to look great, and to make sure that that happens, Steelcase offers a generous five year warranty on your upholstery. So how does that shake out on a daily basis?
