A range of practical, heavy duty stools manufactured in preferred high grade tensile steel, with a tough peel-resistant plastic coating. All models have front to back bracing struts for additional strength. The range incorporates new P.U. moulded components which include ergonomically designed robust seats which are non-slip in a water environment, fire retardant, hygienic and suitable for cleaning in industrial/ commercial washing machines. The seats, arms and component backs contain hygienilac which makes them resistant to MRSA and other microbiological contaminants.
