How a revolution in the design and manufacture of classroom chairs can save your organisation hundreds if not thousands of pounds, as well as reduce maintenance costs and improve your students’ concentration………

Introduced back in 1996  the “one piece” Postura chair was the first classroom chair to be manufactured from a single mould of polypropylene.  Today hundreds of thousands of these chairs are in use throughout the UK in schools, colleges and nurseries.

What’s so special about the “one piece” Postura chair? 

Before the introduction of the Postura chair, most classroom chairs were  made either of wood or  a metal frame  which was fixed to a polypropylene “shell” (the seat)  by screws or rivets.  If you have ever worked in a school then you will almost certainly  have come across broken or vandalised chairs ……… and how do they get broken ?

The weak link is the fixings which join the shell to the frame. They can usually be unscrewed or damaged, either deliberately or by the constant stresses and strains of wear by students for several hours everyday, week after week, month after month and year after year.  Sometimes they can be repaired using a replacement shell or frame but more often than not such repairs tended to be of a temporary nature. 

The Postura chair has done away with all this.   Its  one piece design means there are no screws or rivets to be broken or damaged.  When you take delivery of Postura chairs you get a TWENTY year warranty with each one. That’s how confident  the manufacturers are that you’ll get at least twenty years of trouble free use from each chair.

How can the Postura chair save us  hundreds or thousands of pounds? 

Simple. The warranty covers any possible manufacturing defects for  20 years.

This means that you’ll get 20 years of trouble free classroom seating from as little as 35p per term per chair…and this cost is based on the largest size, being used by ages 11 upwards…for primary and nursery schools the cost is even less !  So you can wave goodbye to broken and vandalised chairs… more time wasted in repairs, no more “wonky” chairs, no more expenditure for replacements when they have become unrepairable.  It all adds up to big savings when you switch to Postura chairs from the traditional classroom chair.

What about improving students’ concentration ? 

If you’ve ever sat on an uncomfortable chair you’ll know, well, how uncomfortable it is.

You  change your position, you fidget, you can’t sit comfortably and if you’re in a meeting the chances are you’re just as concerned with your sitting position than concentrating on what is being said.  It’s no different with your students, which is why the Postura chair was designed to be ergonomically correct …… to be comfortable and encourage good posture, so students can concentrate on lessons rather than continually trying to make themselves comfortable.
