Choosing Classroom Furniture For Different Spaces: A Guide For Bursars And Teachers

How do you know what furniture is best for your school’s needs? Now available in a wide variety of colours, finishes and edging and featuring hard wearing, flexible and durable styles, classroom fittings and fixtures have evolved from the days of wooden benches – much to the relief of your students and teachers! With such a wide range of seating, desks and more, here are Envoplan’s top tips for the perfect school furniture:

Health and Wellbeing

Designs that enhance posture, comfort and in a range of seat heights mean students and staff can spend more valuable study time better focused and engaging with the class activities without facing any adverse physical issues; our chairs are even light enough for one person to stack. The high safety levels in our seating such as stability, durability and strength show you can be certain these are our priorities for everyone in your school.

Superb Seating

Classroom seating has officially set dimensions for not just height but width, arm rest height, angles and more to ensure students are able to maximise their concentration; additionally, Envoplan offers a large number of choices in colours, finishes and fabrics to really highlight your school seating throughout. 

Dining hall seating has its own challenges and needs to be hard wearing, robust and practical; polyprop chairs are easy to clean, made of sustainable materials, stackable, lightweight, or you can choose fixed seating that offers comfort and style with padded seats and backrests while encouraging socialising. 

All seating is fully compliant with BS EN1729 parts 1 and 2 with sizing from 260mm for students in Nursery and Reception, to 460mm for those over 14 years of age. Our chairs are renowned for their superior thoracic, lumbar and pelvic support, thus cradling the whole of the back, and this enhances the possibility of higher and more prolonged levels of concentration and effort.

Excellent Laboratory Equipment

Inspirational, interactive and stimulating, our laboratory furniture comes designed for students to have hands-on experience with a durable range of worktops and seating. With our stunning complementary storage options such as tucked away drawers or our innovative Teaching Wall which helps you to focus your students’ attention whilst creating a space-efficient storage solution, and was created from years of classroom design experience. It is designed, built and installed to your exact requirements, your laboratories will become clutter free safe zones for students to enjoy STEM experiments and fully engage with their lessons. Our experienced design team will ensure your laboratories are not simply beautiful spaces but are crafted to a high degree of specification throughout.

A Fantastic Finish
