How To Chose Your School Chair Height

Thursday, February 9, 2017 2:02:50 PM America/New_York

Virco Analogy School Chair

Many of our customers are unsure which school chair height to purchase for their classrooms.  The following approximated school chair height guide should help you with making that decision.

School Chair Height Guide

Seat heights should be measured by calculating the distance from the floor to the top front curve of the seat.  Measurements should never be taken from the seat's side or rear.  If at all possible, measure the height of an existing chair to more accurately decide what is best for you.

Virco Zuma Rocker Chair

Thursday, May 7, 2015 10:39:06 AM America/New_York

The Virco Zuma Rocker chair has now become one of the most popular school chairs on our website,and in classrooms across the country.  Why?  Because it is helping classrooms, and other educational settings evolve, by giving kids the ability to focus better.  Kids sometimes have a hard time paying attention, and lets face it, we were all kids at one time.  Everything was a distraction, and there was always something else to do, that was more fun than paying attention to the teacher.  Well this is the major benefit of the Zuma Rocker chair.  The rocking motion creates an "active" environment, so the child focuses more on what's in front of them, rather than what's going on around them.  Virco has done extensive research on the benefits of children using a rocking or "active" chair.

Collaborative Space

Wednesday, February 4, 2015 4:27:00 PM America/New_York

Many schools are transforming their media centers into collaborative spaces.  While working this past Summer in four school districts, we found each district to have the same collaborative concept, but the end results were different.  The general concept was being able to allow students to work as a group on a specific project, or break off and work individually.  For this to work, each school district needed to understand the furniture that worked best for their particular setting.  We found there had to be a combination of furniture, such as mobile tables and chairs, couches and loveseats.  This allows for not only collaborative learning, but comfortable areas for 1 to 1 groups, and individuals, as well.

Here is a list of some of the collaborative setting furniture that can be used, many of which were used in the following setting we created.

     - Mobile, pneumatic height chairs and tables
     - Folding & nesting tables
     - Modular chairs and tables
     - Furniture with power up capabilities
     - Sled-base lounge furniture for easier mobility

As you can see in the examples, we had to include almost everything in the list above, to achieve this schools collaborative setting.  The majority of the items featured in the photos are manufactured by KI (Krueger International).
