There are a variety of models:
- Mechanical chairs are the cheapest and simplest model.
The nail technician manually raises the section and fixes it in the right position. This budget option is often chosen by beginners.
- Hydraulic pedicure seats with pedal
It is a more comfortable model that is able to rise and fall smoothly. To adjust the height, you only need to tap the pedal a few times with your foot. One of the disadvantages of hydraulic control: with active use the mechanism can break down after six to twelve months. Not suitable for clients with a lot of weight — the chair will sag.
This model stands out for its mobility. The seat can be equipped with 1−6 motors. The number depends on the functionality of the equipment: height adjustment, tilt angle of the back, position of the footrest, etc. Control in such a structure is carried out by means of a remote control. Generally, these are more expensive models. They serve for a long time and guarantee comfort to the client and technician, so buying even a single-engine seat is much more profitable than a hydraulic or mechanical model.
This is a high-tech seat whose backrest and footrest transform into different positions. Such an armchair is very convenient for clients and belongs to the "luxury" class, but to install it you will need to build a high podium.
When buying a pedicure chair, pay attention to the material the upholstery is made of. Avoid any material with nap. Choose leather or a quality substitute. Frequent disinfection and cleaning must be taken into account. The material must be wear-resistant, because of the frequent disinfection and cleaning that should be done in the salon — otherwise the upholstery will lose its attractive appearance very quickly.
Do not choose white material. Over time, it will pick up traces of the customer’s brightly colored clothes.
