HLR & LLR – High Leg and Low Leg Recliners
Classic High-Leg and Low-Leg recliners are equipped with a heavy gauge steel recliner mechanism. Capable of three positions, this unit allows for full reclining. The tuck under the ottoman extends for full leg extension and gives excellent footrest pitch and support while in the TV position. No handles or cables are involved in the unit operation. Gentle pressure on the arms and the shifting of body weight engage the mechanism. Designed with a weight assisted mechanism, the unit will stop in any position chosen. Shifting body weight forward while pulling in with the feet brings the unit to the upright position and locks the footrest securely in the closed position. This recliner style does require additional space for the reclining operation.
RCL – Wall Hugger
Classic’s Recliner mechanism is constructed of high quality heavy gauge steel. Tested for 30,000 cycles, each unit’s smoothness and longevity is assured with the use of total bushing hardware and solid shoulder rivets. Radial orbital riveting maintains unit consistency and alignment. This all linkage mechanism has no tracks or rollers to wear out. The smooth cable driven release provides problem free reclining comfort. Your RCL mechanism is a “close proximity” unit allowing the user to place the chair no more than 4 to 8 inches from the wall, depending upon back height, while allowing for a full recline.
SGR – Swivel Glider Recliner
The multi-functional Swivel Glider Recliner’s motion mechanism is supported by a heavy duty tubular steel ring base, and allows this chair to swivel securely 360 degrees. In the upright position, the glider assembly provides smoother glide rocking motion, with wide spaced pivot points for level gliding action. As the footrest is released, the glide-rock movement is eliminated and the chair becomes a recliner. The unit provides excellent ottoman elevation and extension in both the TV and full recline positions. A double-locking direct drive linkage system prevents footrest drop. This mechanism is cable driven and has a release switch located on the outside arm of each unit.
TBC – Tilt Back Chair
Simple and effective describe this popular heavy gauge steel mechanism with only two moving parts. A gas cylinder provides pressure allowing the back to be stopped in any position while going to a full recline or returning to an upright position. Traditional and contemporary chairs use this mechanism which allows a full back reline only. All TBC mechanisms are cable operated and controlled by a toggle unit located
on the outside arm of the chair.
INC – Incliner Chair
Classic’s Incliner mechanism is a direct drive unit which synchronizes operation of both sides. A double-lock system holds the ottoman securely while in the open position. A parallel 4-bar ottoman and safety ottoman brackets insure safe operation and added stability. A cable release, weight assisted operation provides smooth, easy opening and closing. The back of the chair does not recline, only the footrest rises for leg and foot support, no need for a separate ottoman.
Most recliners are offered with an optional power mechanism. This power option allows complete reclining control of when to stop the mechanism. This option requires an electrical wall plug receptacle.
Caring for your recliner
Caution should always be used when moving recliners and incliners. In the event a piece is dropped, the result could be a warped or bent reclining mechanism. Even a slight bend could cause improper function of the mechanism. Someone should be on either side of the piece to lift and move. Do not pick up from the front or the back to avoid doing harm to the ottoman joints.
