New UK-based school furniture and educational equipment supplier Education Furniture launched their comprehensively stocked e-commerce store during October 2011. The website encompasses a range of high quality school furniture and equipment suitable for students of all ages, from early learners in pre-schools and nurseries, primary and secondary school pupils, through to college students to mature students in universities and further education institutions.

Education Furniture’s Sales Manager James Welch expects that Education Furniture will quickly establish itself as a leading educational furniture supplier within the UK, “... thanks to the website’s huge product base of premium quality products, which we have made available at truly affordable prices. We can help schools to kit out their classrooms and staff rooms well within budget with school furniture and equipment that has been designed to stand up to busy school environments, year after year. ”

Education Furniture for Every Eventuality

Mr Welch explains that,

“... the new Education Furniture online product catalogue satisfies some basic – but often overlooked – criteria that proves so intrinsic to creating a stimulating and safe learning environment – namely product durability, colour, interaction and correct ergonomics.”

Many of the classroom furniture products available through Education Furniture comply with the advisory BS EN7129, a new European standard for classroom furniture. The two-part standard has been created specifically for tables, desk and chairs, and ensures that the size and shape of these items allows for correct ergonomics. The standard also stipulates that each item passes strength and stability tests to ensure that they stand up to classroom demands.

The educational furniture product base will cater for much more than just the average school’s classroom furniture needs. In fact, the new range is so all-encompassing that a new independent Academy could quite easily furnish their entire school with Education Furniture’s stock - including all library furniture, staff room furniture, reception furniture, school canteen furniture and even equipment for facilities management.

More than Just Classroom Furniture

Education Furniture will be providing a huge array of school desks, ergonomically correct school chairs for children, office desks for receptions, staff rooms and faculty offices, as well as numerous Gratnells storage tray and storage unit options to help keep classrooms across the country organised and tidy. The website will also feature categories dedicated to display equipment, such as interactive whiteboards, rollerboards and exhibition stands.

But because Education Furniture is committed to helping schools provide the best equipped, most stimulating learning environments for children, in addition to these ‘staple’ pieces of school furniture, they will be including a large array of cost-effective sensory soft-play products, interactive soft furnishings and themed displays in their stock that will help growing children to develop their mathematical, literacy and motility skills.

The new e-commerce store will also include educational furniture that reaches far beyond the confines of the modern day classroom,

“We wanted to build a product base that could, in theory, be used to completely furnish not just a school’s classrooms, but it’s cloakrooms, library, canteen, reception and exhibition areas”, Mr Welch clarifies. “For cloakrooms and changing areas, we’ve got a range of innovative, space-saving fixed and mobile cloakroom furniture solutions. For the school canteen, we’ve dedicated an entire category to fast-food style folding modular canteen tables, together with a wide choice of easy-clean, durable polypropylene canteen seating in a range of colours that can fit in with any school’s colour concepts. We can even furnish a school library with study tables, bookcases and book display units. When it comes to Education Furniture, there’s no area of the school, college or university that we can’t cater for – our outdoor play mats even take our product range into the playground.”

Many of Education Furniture’s products will be available with up to 60% off recommended retail prices, with generous discounts offered on bulk purchases.
