Leap Plus 500lbs Rated

Steelcase has recently added a new model to its highly successful Leap office chair range.

The Leap Plus is designed to safely support users weighing up to 500lbs. This represents a significant increase on the capacity of the standard models where the limit is 300lbs.

It's a welcome addition to the range as the vast majority of office chairs don't go above the 300lbs limit which often means heavier built users end up having to find a custom solution.

What's different about the Leap Plus?
In appearance it looks pretty much the same as the standard Leap models, in reality there are some relatively minor dimensional changes.

Here's what's different

  • The overall chair and seat width are 3.75 inches wider
  • The lumbar support goes slightly higher
  • The chair back is 2 inches wider
  • It doesn't recline quite as far as the regular model
  • The gas lift is uprated to carry up to 500lbs

With the changes and uprating it means that the Leap Plus starts at over a $1000, so it's by no means cheap. Nonetheless it is a quality build and with a 10 year warranty on mechanism and gas lift it will last many years.
