Key features to look for in chairs for schools
Your waiting room, cafeteria or classroom chairs for schools are a big investment and are an important part of how your students, teachers and employees engage with the material being presented, so be sure you’re getting the best solution for your needs with this handy list below…
- Comfort: It sounds like a no-brainer, but the finding comfortable; quality plastic chairs can be harder than you might think. Especially if you’re ordering online, look for chairs that offer back support and an ergonomic design, like the Noodle Chair from Flavors. This chair has a patented suspension below its seat pan that allows it to tilt slightly in all directions. This makes the chair more comfortable than other classroom chairs and also encourages the student to engage his or her core muscles while seated, which promotes better breathing to improve concentration.
- Durability: To buy chairs for schools or businesses is important. For years to come, make sure whatever chair you choose is made of either a high-quality laminate or high-density polypropylene. For rolling chairs, look for models with a five-star rolling base and frame and smooth rolling casters. For static chairs, a chrome frame offers rugged durability.
- Color customization: The “brand” of your school or office is an important factor to consider when choosing chairs, as a consistent color scheme helps promote school spirit and customer loyalty. Plus, choosing environmentally-appropriate colors, such as brighter colors for more “fun” spaces and darker colors in a more somber environment, help set the tone you are trying to create in your room design.
- Thoughtful touches: Your students, teachers and employees will appreciate the details that make a good plastic chair more than just a seat. Look for chairs that have carefully-designed comfort features like Flavor’s line of plastic chairs which include a waterfall front edge and subtle flex in the seatback. Flavor’s designs also allow students to choose four-position seating positions, so that they can sit comfortably facing front, either side or rear.
