Schools, colleges, and other educational institutions need a lot of gear to keep the school running smoothly. When people think of the most important pieces of equipment that schools need, the obvious candidates include tables, desks, storage, and chairs.
However, even these rely on the unsung heroes of hardware to ensure their safe and effective application. Many smaller (yet potentially more vital) hardware components often go overlooked, such as the leg protectors and the swivel glides on your chairs, and the various fasteners that hold your school together. Chair glides and chair leg caps are some of the most common floor protection parts that can be replaced or even upgraded for your school chairs.
Fortunately, at Shiffler Equipment, we never overlook any aspect of facilities maintenance for our community’s schools. We offer a diverse catalog of the most popular brands in hardware, furniture parts, and accessories to ensure that you can keep the students and faculty focused on education.
The most common replacement parts for school chairs are seat and backrest pads, gas lift cylinders, and chair legs.
If your chair no longer adjusts in height or sinks when you sit on it, it may be time to replace the gas lift cylinder.
Yes, you can replace just the seat pad of your school chair.
You will need to measure the diameter of the leg at the bottom where it inserts into the base, as well as the overall length of the leg to find the right replacement.
No, we do not sell replacement parts for all brands of school chairs. It is best to check with the manufacturer of your chair or a specialized furniture repair store for replacement parts specific to your brand.
No, not all replacement parts are universal and interchangeable. It is important to find the right replacement part for your specific chair model to ensure a proper fit.
It depends on the replacement part and your level of handymanship. For example, installing new seat or back pads is a relatively simple task, while replacing a gas lift cylinder may require some technical skills. It is best to follow the manufacturer's instructions for replacement or consult a professional if you are unsure.
