Care and Maintenance

With regular care and maintenance, your Herman Miller product will provide many years of superior performance and satisfaction. To maintain quality, please follow the cleaning procedures outlined here.

The instructions for the care and maintenance of Herman Miller products are provided to you as a service. No warranty is implied since results may vary.

Divider

Base, Frame, and Arms

Normal cleaning
 

Wash coated metal surfaces with a soft cloth soaked in detergent and warm water; rinse thoroughly and dry. Remove scuff marks from low-gloss coatings with pre-softened paste wax, following the manufacturer's instructions. Remove scuff marks and scratches from high-gloss coatings using automotive polishing compounds, either liquid or paste. After polishing, apply a pre-softened automotive paste wax to restore original sheen.

Do not use abrasive, acid, alcohol–based, or solvent–based cleaners; they may damage the paint finish. For assistance in determining the appropriate color and gloss for Herman Miller touch-up paint, contact your Herman Miller Customer Service Representative.

Seat, Back, and Arm Pads

Normal cleaning
 

Wash plastic surfaces with a soft cloth soaked in mild detergent and warm water. Rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft cloth. 

Do not use solvents or abrasive kitchen cleaners.

FLEXNET Suspension Seat

Normal cleaning
 

Vacuum fabric as needed using an upholstery attachment. Vacuuming picks up dust and reduces the need for professional cleaning.

Do not brush fabric or use a vacuum attachment with a rotary brush. Brushing may permanently damage the nap or change the character of the fabric.

Spot Cleaning
 

Immediately soak up the stain with a soft absorbent cloth.

Do not dry the stain completely or it may set. The longer a stain is allowed to remain on a fabric, the more difficult it is to remove.

Water-based stains such as coffee, soft drinks, fruit juices, or milk
 

Use a water-based cleaner (specifically made for cleaning fabric) or a solution of mild (alkaline) warm soapy water (not overly soapy) applied with a damp clean cloth or sponge. Work the cleaner into a lather or foam. Soak up all remaining solution and then use a clean cloth or sponge dipped in cool water to remove any residue.

Never use hot water; it will set the stain. Avoid scrubbing.

Oil-based stains such as lipstick, grease, or salad dressing
 

Use a dry cleaning solution applied with a damp clean cloth or sponge. Test the cleaning solution on a small, concealed area first. If there is no spotting, ringing, or damage to the fabric or its dyes, apply the cleaning solution to the soiled area with light, quick strokes. Begin at the outside of the stain and work toward the center, being careful not to over-saturate the fabric. K2R is also a product that can be used. See product label for complete instructions.

Do not over apply water or any liquid solution to fabric. Excessive wetting of the fabric with any liquid solution may result in permanent damage to the material. Do not rub too vigorously or you may damage the nap of the fabric or break fibers. Several light applications are better than one heavy application. Soak up all remaining solution and then use another clean cloth or sponge dipped in cool water to remove any residue. Let fabric dry thoroughly and then vacuum well before using. If the stain resists cleaning, contact a professional cleaner.

Large Areas
 

If large areas are soiled, contact a professional cleaning firm.

My favorite chair
I bought total of 4 over the last five years. So I kept going back to buy more. It is comfortable and light, easy to move for relocation.
August 31, 2017
Looks can be deceiving!
The design with the holes made me think of a nursing home chair that you wash your patients down in however this chair is extremely comfortable. It is super lightweight which is great for our patients to be able to pull out to use!
June 12, 2017
Very comfortable and good for back posture
Just got this chair, with the flexnet. My achy back molds nicely into the chair and results in good sitting posture . Chair looks good as well. Glad I purchased it.
May 18, 2017
This product has great desing, perfect for working all day.
I been using this chair since 15 years ago. I recently moved to NYC from Monterrey Mexico, i am a freelancer and work from home, this is the perfect chair for me.

Also had a back surgery 4 years ago, the ergonomic design of this product allows me to improve my posture.
October 24, 2016
Lightweight and High Quality
Pleasing to the eye, very well-made, and surprisingly lightweight. Easy to move around with the optional casters.
September 27, 2016
This chair is very comfortable
We got these chairs for a communal workspace in our office. My employees love them! They are very comfortable and also look great. We got the flexnet bottom to ensure comfort over longer sitting periods. I love how customizable the chair is.
June 14, 2016
sooooo comfortable
I ordered these chairs for a computer lab when I was working; since I have retired I ordered one for myself for my drafting desk. These chairs are incredibilly comfortable, sturdy, and give terrific support for your back, and are so easy to keep clean! I would recommend these to anyone who needs a great chair for a desk. Absolutely perfect! and design is great; less is more!

Quality Products
I recently purchased two Caper chairs and am completely satisfied. The design, color options, comfort, and customer service are "First Class"! These chairs are built to order so don't expect them overnight. The wait is absolutely worth it.

Two splendid chairs
Caper Chairs abound at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago where I teach. I am always pleased to place my rear in one. So I decided to order one for myself at home. Wonderful, but after a while my extra wide butt chafed a bit at the edges of the hard seat, so I ordered one that has the softer seat with mesh material that provides exactly the extra comfort I need. My wife, with her narrower bottom, has taken over my original firmer one, preferring its stability and comfort over her old tilty office chair. The wheels on these chairs afford one all the mobility and swivelability of a standard office chair. Excellent.
June 10, 2015
Exactly what I wanted
Moves easily across the floor, comfortable, sleek and nice to look at.

What is the weight limit on this chair?

We have these at work and everyone loves them. Thinking about buying them for home use - but wonder about how much weight a chair can handle.
A shopper on Feb 18, 2012
Best Answer: The Caper Chair is rated for up to 300 lbs. If there is anything else we can help with, please give us a call at 888.798.0202.
How much space is recommended to store six Caper stacking chairs (molded seat and fixed arms)?
A shopper on May 22, 2017
Best Answer: When stacking Caper chairs on top of one another, each chair adds 2 inches to the forward edge of the footprint, and also adds 2 inches to the height of the stack.

The dimensions of a Caper Stacking Chair with molded seat and fixed arms is 32" H x 24.25" W x 16.5" D. After stacking 6 chairs the recommended space needed is 42" H x 24.25" W x 26.5" D.

Please let the Herman Miller Store know if you have any questions at 888.798.0202 or hmstore@hermanmiller.com.
For the FlexNet seating, how much would the seat dip down when seating on it?

Since the lumbar support in the back rest is made to spec with the molded seat, will having the FlexNet option create less of good posture when seating if the FlexNet seat sinks down when sat on?

Will it made the molded back lumbar support higher in the back because the seat goes down with weight/not proper position?

I am looking to use this chair for longer hours at a time. They have the Caper chair in the office which is fully molded. I feel the seating position suits me well. I want it to be more comfortable with the FlexNet but am scared it will affect the ergonomics of the chair.
A shopper on Nov 10, 2013
Best Answer: Flexnet is designed to conform to the user�s body and retain its original shape when the chair is unoccupied. Materials include elastomer and polyester yarns, which provide the strength and recovery properties as well as comfort and support in the chair. The design incorporates how the user sits in the chair, and therefore the ergonomics of the chair would not be compromised. The Caper Chair with and without Flexnet surpassed vigorous testing to ensure its long-term viability and support. The chair is tested to withstand normal use with its 12 year warranty.

Ideally, the Caper Chair is designed with the ergonomic technology to suit occasional sitting (1-3 hours at a time). If you are looking for a chair to use all day, you may want to consider one of our office chairs designed to provide support over longer periods of time, such as the Aeron, Mirra, or SAYL.

The Aeron Chair is our most customizable, personal chair we offer at Herman Miller. It comes with an adjustable lumbar support to enhance back support and physical comfort in addition to adjustable tilt and height. This is the only chair with Active PostureFit, a sacral support that allows you to personalize the level of support to the base of your spine.

The Mirra Chair also has the option of the adjustable lumbar support to ensure maximum support and comfort while sitting for long hours at a time. The chair features the TriFlex Back, a frameless, pliable backrest that provides the perfect balance of support along the spine and flexibility at the perimeter of the backrest. Each zone provides the appropriate level of ergonomic support and freedom of movement.

The SAYL chair offers playful colors and a visual appealing design with the 3D intelligent suspension back. The 3D intelligent suspension features varying degrees of support that are molded directly into the strands of the back; more where you need it and less where you don�t. This office chair has a smaller frame and is more similar to the Caper Chair in terms of size.

Please feel free to browse the product pages of the Aeron, Mirra, and SAYL listed below to help make the best chair choice for your needs.

What's the pros and cons among using glides, casters and braking casters on ceramic tile floor?
A shopper on Nov 27, 2016
Best Answer: Glides

Pros: Versatile and durable. The Hard Floor Glides are very universal and include a Floor Saver feature, which pushes dirt and sand aside so they don�t scratch floors.

Cons: User will need to get up to move chair or use a lot force to push the chair around if they want to move while in the chair.

Casters

Pros: Versatile and easy to roll around. Casters give the user the ability to move the chair easily while still seated.

Cons: The chair is very light and if slightly bumped, it could roll away while the user is going to sit down.

Braking Casters

Pros: All the benefits of a regular caster and the additional feature of an internal brake. The brake disengages when you�re not sitting in the chair, so you can roll. When you get up, the brake engages and keeps the chair from rolling away easily.

Cons: The brake will make it difficult to roll around when you�re not in the chair.

Please contact the Herman Miller Store if you have any further questions at 888-798-0202 or hmstore@hermanmiller.com.
Seating Duration Capacity

Are the Caper Flex Net /with arm designed for 8 hour of comfortable seating sessions?
A shopper on Oct 12, 2016
Best Answer: The Caper Stacking Chair is a great option for short-term seating. Caper Stacking chairs are ideal for collaborative work space like a conference room to the cafeteria. The duration of time varies slightly with the seat option:

-Molded Plastic seat option is good for 1-3 hours

-FlexNet seat option is good for 2-4 hours

i have two caper stacking chairs with casters...is it possible to remove them and purchase glides for them??
A shopper on Jul 16, 2016

can this chair come with a padded seat?
A shopper on Jan 22, 2016
Best Answer: The Caper Stacking Chair comes with the option of a Molded Seat which is a plastic material or a FlexNet Seat which is made of a mesh material. It does not come with an option for a padded seat. If you have any other questions, please contact us at 888-798-0202 or by email at hmstore@hermanmiller.com
When using the breaking casters, are the wheels locked when someone is sitting down so that they cannot fall?
A shopper on Jan 11, 2016
Best Answer: A spring in the caster compresses when the user is in the chair. This disengages the breaking mechanism, allowing the chair to roll. When the user leaves the chair, the spring expands and engages the brake so the chair won't roll around/away easily. The breaking caster is used with our light weight chairs, preventing it from rolling away at the slightest bump while getting in the chair.

Please contact the Herman Miller Store if you have any further questions at 888-798-0202 or hmstore@hermanmiller.com.

Is the Flexnet Seat cleanable with a Clorox solution?

Looking to use it in a healthcare enviroment.
A shopper on Jul 30, 2015
Best Answer: The Flexnet Seat on the Caper Stacking chair is not cleanable with Clorox solution as excessive wetting of the fabric with any liquid solution may result in permanent damage to the material.

For a healthcare environment, the Molded Seat would be much better and easier to clean.

Please contact the Herman Miller Store if you have any further questions at 888-798-0202 or hmstore@hermanmiller.com

How do you clean the Caper Stacking Chair?

We have approximately 100 of the Caper Stacking Chairs in our facility and are looking for a simple and relaively inexpensive way to clean them.
A shopper on May 27, 2015
