Welcome to Hurdleys; home of the widest selection of office furniture, storage and accessories in New Zealand!

There are a lot of options for buying office furniture, from stools to chairs and more. However, bad chairs and poorly made desks are just some of the problems many office workers face from big box stores and not correcting these problems can lead to back and neck issues, carpal tunnel, poor sleep and decreased productivity and overall unhappiness at work.
Investing in good office furniture is key for having a happy and healthy office!
We take care to ensure that all of our products are ergonomically friendly and designed for long-lasting use and incredible functionality. As a family owned and operated business, we are invested in having a wide selection of high-quality products that are competitively priced and will guarantee customer satisfaction.

Save Your Back with An Office Stool
No matter what job a person is doing be it working at a rodeo or in an office, there are always risks associated. Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) affect the muscles, nerves, blood vessels, ligaments and tendons. These injuries can occur a number of different ways, but repetitive tasks (such as typing) or sitting in uncomfortable or unnatural ways, can exacerbate these problems.
Work-related MSDs can be prevented by choosing ergonomic friendly office furniture and ensuring that you’re practising correct posture. Ergonomics helps reduce muscle fatigue whilst enhancing productivity and lessoning the number and severity of work-related problems.
The general goal of ergonomics is to change the working environment to eliminate discomfort and the risk of injury. Posture is a big part of this, and it’s important to note that while slouching in a poorly designed chair may in the long term feel more “comfortable” than sitting in a posture focused stool (focused on engaging the core and encouraging a straight back without leaning onto a chair back) will cause less lasting discomfort in the long run, which is the ultimate goal.
If you’re thinking of swapping your computer chair for a stool, be sure when you hit that “office stools for sale” search, you’re mindful about ones that are designed with ergonomics and proper posture in mind.
