Adjustable Reclining Tension
Advantage: Adjust the backrest tension up or down
Benefit: You can customise the amount of effort it takes to recline the back of the chair
“Adjustable Reclining Tension is a great feature. We know everyone comes in different sizes and strengths, so La-Z-Boy has 2 wing nuts on the bottom of the chair that can easily be adjusted to modify the backrest tension. This allows you to increase or decrease the amount of effort it takes to recline the back of the chair, providing customised comfort”.

Advantage: Footrest does not sag when used
Benefit: Legs are fully supported at all times

Genuine La-Z-Boy Advantage number 6
Seat Tilt Ratchet Mechanism
Advantage: Adjust the seat and footrest pitch into 18 unique angles
Benefit: User can in any raised footrest position raise the front of the seat to elevate their feet more and create a customised comfort position
“With our Seat Tilt Ratchet Mechanism you can adjust the seat and footrest pitch into any one of 18 unique angles. This will allow you to further elevate your feet in any seated position, not just in a full recline like other manufacturers’ recliners. By elevating your feet you will stimulate your blood flow, which provides greater relaxation and comfort. Because the seat and back operate independently in a La-Z-Boy recliner, users can by shifting their weight adjust the back/seat/footrest relationship into many different angles, allowing the individual to find the right custom comfort position”.

Advantage: Long lasting padding that is perfectly fitted to the specific recliner style
Benefit: The recliner will look and feel better for a longer period

Blown Fibre Padding
Advantages: Consistent comfort level over the entire back, better appearance and superior compression and recovery characteristics.
Benefits: Superior comfort

Full Body Support
Advantage: Seat cores extend underneath the back cushions while relined
Benefit: Lower back and tailbone are supported at all times in any reclining position
“Other recliners don’t offer full body support when reclining in the chair. That’s not the case with La-Z-Boy. Our chairs are designed with solid foam seat cores extending underneath the back cushions when you recline. This ensures your lower back and tailbone are supported at all times when using a La-Z-Boy recliner. With Head-to-Heel support you can sit any way you like and know you will always have full body support”.
