Types of Lifeguard Chairs
Lifeguard chairs may not be relevant to those people who do not own a pool, but it is very important for those whom does. When making a decision to purchase lifeguard chair, you will agree with me that it is not something that you can just wakeup the go to the market and buy it at once. The decision to buy a lifeguard chair takes a lot of consideration as well as reasoning. For instance, any lifeguard chair should have the general characteristics such as the fact that it should not rust or react with water.
There are two main and most common types of lifeguard chairs. The first on one is fixed chair. This is the best lifeguard chair whenever the deck space is considerably limited. Unlike other chairs, it has a wider platform and has elevated railings. The elevation of railings are crucial in that the swimmers can be able to hold and pull themselves upwards from the pool in case of an emergency. On the other hand the fixed chair has been accredited by OSHA (Occupational safety and health association) hence making it the best chair worth being used in any pool.
The second type of lifeguard chair is the movable chair. This is a lifeguard chair with a number of advantages as well as disadvantages. One of the advantage is that it is movable. You can actually move this chair from one side of the pool to the other depending on your needs. They have same characteristicsas the fixed one but the good thing is that it allows for convenience during movement. I fact, this lifeguard chair is the best for swimming competition and filming of activities taking place around the pool.
A good lifeguard chair should meet all other technical characteristics
When making a decision on the best lifeguard chair to buy, there are some of the technical characteristics to consider. Some of these characteristics include the fact that they must be stainless steel. Different producers manufactures different lifeguard chairs which are either stainless or those that can be stained by rust or oxidation. In order to make sure that your lifeguard chair lasts longer, you need to consider a stainless one. Secondly, other technical characteristics to consider includes the dimension, whether the chair is made of fiberglass or not and whether it can be adjusted.
