Well I went back to my office and decided I ought to check in with my rep. She offered to send me a large sample for us to "test out." Yesterday, said sample arrived and the butt sweat testing began. My coworkers and myself laughed at various times during the day as the large vinyl sample got tossed from person to person.
To those of you who contributed to the “butt sweat” research, thank you. I thought you might enjoy my analysis and the client’s response. ;)
I have had various coworkers in my office sitting on it for various lengths of time. So far there has been no “butt sweat” complaints. We’ve been testing it without breathable backs (we have the vinyl draped over the back) and they mentioned they felt a little warm after a while but felt some of that was because they weren’t getting any air to the back either. One of the guys sits on a vinyl seated chair all the time and he sits in front of a full length window. He told me that from time to time he gets pretty warm but hasn’t had a sweating problem exactly. Some of the guys in our office mentioned they felt better knowing they could wipe away sweat from a seat rather than having sweat seep into a cloth seat. One of the guys told me he sweats a lot in the summer time and it doesn’t matter if it is cloth or vinyl, he’ll sweat just the same. Just some research information for you. I want to make sure we make the best decisions for the spaces!
Ok you caused me to fall out of my chair…. The BUTT SWEAT issue has been well researched I feel …
Thank you for your diligent work, some say just sitting on your butt is bad but thanks for the effort… lol I’m dying
Thank you that will be fine
