Flexsteel Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: FLXS) has secured three separate patents across multiple divisions within the company’s Contract and Home Furnishings businesses. With a history of quality furniture manufacturing and progressive product development, Flexsteel has long been working to improve furniture through purposeful engineering, lasting quality, and impeccable design.

Several weeks ago, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office issued patents for the DualFlex Spring System (9,103,397), adjustable telescoping arm (9,107,507), and self-adjusting armrest assembly (9,108,549). These three patents come just weeks after the company received a patent for its SpringFlex Back (9,060,610) feature that allows occupants to rock back and forth or use a lever to lock the back in an upright, stationary position.

“These patents bring a tremendous sense of credibility to our line of products,” said Mike Santillo, Vice President of Healthcare at Flexsteel. “The DualFlex seat spring is part of our line of blue spring support systems and provides an unmatched level of comfort and durability. It’s what sets our company apart and shows our commitment to evolving with our customers’ needs.”

Likewise, the adjustable telescoping arm, featured on select treatment recliners in Flexsteel Healthcare, allows for easier patient transfer from a chair or bed. This feature brings added focus to patient comfort and caregiver ease, two principals at the foundation of the company’s Healthcare product development.

The self-adjustable armrest assembly is featured on many seating options in Flexsteel’s Recreation business which is comprised of seating for both marine and recreational vehicles. This armrest assembly keeps the seat’s armrests in a horizontal position when adjusting the seat back to any reclined angle. This feature provides Flexsteel with a unique edge over other market competitors.

These patents are proof that Flexsteel continues to lead the way with crafted outcomes based on market needs. Visit www.flexsteel.com for more information on these patents and the products they are featured on.
