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.

Classroom Stools

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.

Teacher Chairs

Last but certainly not least, you can't forget to outfit your classroom with a functional yet comfortable teacher chair! Whether you use an office chair like this model from HON, or a stool like this from Pedagogy is more suitable, it's important for your teacher chair to have the movability, flexibility, and comfort of a typical office chair while not interfering with their teaching style.

Differing from a student chair, our teacher chairs are constructed of durable polyurethane, leather, and mesh. They offer a comfortable back and seat with a variety of levers and tilts so your teacher will have the perfect fit. Teacher chairs are a key part of your school furniture choices as your teachers need the right chair that’s conducive to their long day of teaching.
