We at Superior Storage Solutions fully understand that modern teaching methods are evolving. As a result, modern classroom environments are changing too. For hundreds of years students have sat in identical seating, organised into neat rows. At the front of the classroom was the teacher, with the authority to provide discipline and learning. However, education professionals realise that this setup is outdated and doesn’t provide the best environment for learning for the 21st century. Instead, today’s classrooms are encouraged to develop intrinsically motivated learners, in a flexible and inclusive environment.
Encouraging good posture for our children makes economic sense: A child will sit on a chair for up to six hours a day over a period of 11 years or more. For many years the children in our schools have been seated on a variety of polypropylene or wooden chairs, which are manufactured in different styles and sizes. Provided these chairs pass European Standards for strength, stability and safety they are welcomed into our classrooms. Each manufacturer has their own agenda for their chairs. Some are manufactured to a price, some to a style and others to a best value compromise. Till recently however, none have been manufactured to a European Standard that first and foremost sets out to encourage good posture for our children. EN 1729 Part 1 is the standard drawn up by the Technical Committee for Europe, CEN/TC207, which now sets chair dimensions, heights, angles and back support contact points for every age group, so as to encourage good posture. Good posture not only means our children will be healthier – it also means that they should be more comfortable – and therefore more attentive in class. EN1729 Part 1 supersedes all other standards for chairs used in our classrooms and is the standard to look for. The Titan Chair was the first one-piece polypropylene chair to attain EN1729 Part 1 & 2 Certification. The benefit of one-piece polypropylene chairs is well documented in terms of their longevity (20-year warranty) comfort and safety in the classroom. With no screws for practical jokers to remove, no sharp edges to cause damage, no metalwork to rust and full EN1729 Certification. Many chairs will pass EN1729 Part 2 as this only applies to strength and replaces BS4875. Our Titan & EN one chair conforms to Part 1 and part 2 which is based on design for posture.
All our tables are manufactured in Ireland using highly skilled Irish craftsmen. Because we manufacture, we can change or alter any dimension or colour to our client’s requirement. All our tables are of fully welded construction, comply with all EU directives and come with a 12-year warranty on the framework. Our new Groupwork range of school classroom tables have been designed for collaborative learning. Classroom designs can become fluid and changed as required. All the tables in the Groupwork range can be used in conjunction to create unique collaborative learning spaces. The benefits of collaborative learning are widely known, enhance problem solving, inspire critical thinking, improve social interaction, encourage the development of self-management skills, boost oral communication skills, encourage a more positive teacher/pupil relationship, and promote the development of interpersonal skills. Our Goliath student tables are a single or double user post-primary table that can be clustered together in many ways making them great for the modern school environment where flexibility of space is essential. For small group work or lined up in rows for presentations, these student tables are ideally suited for both classrooms and multipurpose spaces where furniture layouts need to adapt for different learning styles.
