School Chairs

As a school administrator or facilities manager, it’s vital that you equip your students and staff with the best tools to maximize their productivity. When it comes to furnishing a classroom with  flexible seating, there are many different factors to consider.

One of the most important decisions you’ll have to make is what type of classroom furniture, specifically school chairs or kid chairs, to use. Not only will comfortable and functional classroom chairs promote better learning, but they’ll also help keep your staff and students healthy and happy.

Today, there are many types of school chairs available on the market as well as teacher chairs. Fortunately, at Shiffler Equipment, we offer a diverse selection of student chairs, stools, and seating for a wide variety of educational institutions.

Classroom School Chairs

When choosing school chairs for your classroom, it’s important to consider the specific needs of your organization. Elementary schools and high schools alike should go through a checklist of needs for their classroom school chairs. From seat height to chrome frame, here are a few factors to keep in mind for picking a school chair:

  • Purpose :
    • What will the chairs be used for?
    • Are they for students or staff?
    • Will they be used for tasks such as sitting at a desk or standing at a workbench?
  • Size :
    • How large is the space you’re furnishing?
    • How many people will need to be accommodated?
  • Age :
    • Not all chairs are suitable for all ages; be sure to choose models that are appropriate for the age group of your students and staff.
  • Usage:
    • How often will the chairs be used?
    • How long will people sit in them?
  • Surroundings :
    • What’s the environment of the room you’re furnishing?
    • Some materials are better suited for certain types of floors or carpets.
    • Keep in mind that if a chair has arms, it may not slide as well on a certain floor type.

Traditional Classroom Chairs

Classroom furniture often starts by picking the student chairs. Chrome frame chairs are often the traditional go-to for classroom chairs. Classroom chairs often also have hard plastic seats and backs.

The  Pedagogy Spartan 16” Cantilever plastic school chair  is perfect for use in both classrooms and school offices. This school chair is made of durable plastic and metal, and it features a cantilever base that provides greater stability.

The  Intellect Wave Large 18″ Chair  is ideal for students in any learning environment. This school chair features a comfortable 18” seat height, powder-coated frame, and a chrome book rack. Both options are also stacking chairs, which make them easy to store.

A school chair often comes in the form of a classroom stool, especially in a lab-type classroom setting. This  Diversified Woodcrafts Wood Seat Chair  redefines classroom furniture. It comes in a variety of colors and has an adjustable height, making it a perfect school chair for both children and adult students.

Another great version of the stool is the  Diversified Woodcrafts Tractor Chair . This school chair is the perfect fit for any educational institution and is made with a comfortable vinyl seat and back. The tractor-style chair also comes with a chrome foot ring and base.

School Chairs: Frequently Asked Questions

Do the Classroom Furniture Bundles Include Everything I See in the Pictures?

Certainly! We would never want to mislead our potential customers by putting up display photos that don't feature the different elements you see.

Are Teacher Chairs Available?

Certainly! Students aren't the only ones we cater to. After all, teachers are the ones facilitating the learning experience, so how could we leave them out? We have teacher chairs in a variety of styles that you can choose from to fit easily into just about any aesthetic you can think of!

Do I Have to Buy Stacking Chairs as a Set?

Stacking chairs are meant to be owned as a set, as their design allows for owning them in bulk and being able to stack them whenever you want a simple storage solution. However, we understand that sometimes, customers may just want to buy one. If that is the case with you, it's no problem! We allow you to buy them individually if desired!

Are There Color Options Besides Those Displayed for the Student Chair Models?

Some models will have customization options while others don't. Maybe a black frame doesn't suit you and you wish to change it or the color overall isn't your style. Models such as the Pedagogy Badger will cover you there! Please reach out to us to discuss any custom or unique options.

What are the most important features to look for in a school chair?

The most important features to look for in a school chair include comfort, durability, adjustability, and safety. Comfort is important for ensuring students can focus for extended periods of time. Durability in school chairs is necessary to withstand frequent use and abuse. Adjustability allows the chair to fit a range of student sizes and preferences. Safety features like non-slip feet and sturdy construction can prevent accidents and injuries with school chairs.

The seat should also be wide enough to comfortably accommodate the student's hips and thighs.

Are ergonomic chairs important for schools?

Yes, ergonomic school chairs are important for schools because they promote good posture and reduce the risk of musculoskeletal problems. Ergonomic school chairs are designed to provide support to the natural curves of the spine and reduce pressure on the lower back. They also encourage active sitting, which promotes movement and blood flow.

Can school chairs be recycled?

Yes, many school chairs can be recycled. Some school chairs are made from materials like plastic or metal that can be recycled, while others may need to be disassembled to separate different materials for recycling. It's important to check with local recycling facilities to determine which types of school chairs can be recycled and how to properly dispose of them.
