Lab Furniture

When students are developing their research skills and learning how to conduct scientific experiments, they need proper lab furniture. With the right science tables and lab stools, budding young chemists and physicists can enjoy hands-on education. Whether they are having a lesson or engaging in a dissection, great furniture will keep everyone focused on the task at hand.

How should you arrange a school science lab? You should have sturdy lab tables or complete laboratory workstations, with enough space for every student to work comfortably. Our eye wash stations and lab showers ensure that students are protected.

What are the most important elements of school science lab design?

The first thing to consider when furnishing an entire lab is the work surface options. Workstations and tables are both great options. Ultimately, the right choice depends on your needs. Lab tables are more versatile because they can be moved around when you want to rearrange a classroom. Workstations, however, have the added convenience of built in gas and water fixtures. If your science curriculum includes many experiments that utilize an open flame, having enough gas fixtures in the room is very important.

No matter which configuration you select, you will need to choose the ideal work surface material for your environment. Lab tables are much tougher than regular tables so they can withstand the chemicals and other harsh materials that are used for experiments. Surface materials come in varying degrees of toughness including chemical-resistant and epoxy resin options.

Laboratory tables generally seat two students side by side. This is an ideal arrangement because many teachers like students to work in pairs. When students work together they develop important communication skills and use less supplies per person.

How should I choose lab table arrangements?

Workstations come in forward-facing arrangements, or with students seated on all sides. If you have many instructional periods in which students must face the board and take notes, it is important for everyone to be facing forward so they can see clearly. Lab workstations facilitate work in pairs or larger groups. While you are making sure that budding scientists have a place to work, don't forget about their teachers. Be sure to include a well-equipped instructor's desk that is as well.

What kind of chairs should you have in the science lab?

Every room in a school needs to have appropriate seating, and the science classroom is no exception. No matter how work spaces are configured, our lab stools provide the support that is needed during classes. They come in a variety of materials and styles, from leading manufacturers including National Public Seating, Academia and OFM.

Choose hardboard, hard plastic or padded seats. We even have swivel stools with anti-bacterial, anti-microbial vinyl upholstery. If you prefer mesh or wooden stools, we have those too. Models are available with and without backrests, with square or round seats. To make sure that people of all sizes can stay positioned properly, adjustable-height options are available as well.

Where is the best place to store science lab materials?

Every experiment requires a unique set of materials. Rather than having to run back and forth to a storage closet or spend a considerable amount of time setting up the laboratory in advance you can keep all necessary materials handy with lab storage. Lab cabinets come with either wood or glass doors, in freestanding, mobile and wall-mounted models. If you are working with extremely harsh chemicals, flammable liquids safety cabinets from Edsal will keep everything securely stowed away when not in use. Microscope storage cabinets are available as well.

How can I make the science lab safe?

Ensure that every experiment is a safe one with precautionary equipment. Every operational lab needs to have a lab shower and eye wash station, in case of the unlikely event that they are needed. You can get both of these items installed in one unit or order them separately. We even have eyewash stations that can be installed on a regular sink.

Demonstrate proper technique and regard for the learning process with lab furniture from Hertz Furniture. All of our items are safe and functional so students and teachers can enjoy a proper worry-free experiment experience.

Ergonomic school furniture will change the way your students learn. When children are positioned properly throughout the day, they are able to focus longer, learn better and go home without worrying about aches and pains. Starting off young with ergonomic classroom furniture will help students develop important motor skills in the proper way.

Hertz Furniture understands that a healthy learning environment starts with ergonomic chairs and desks so students can stop squirming and focus on their learning. Ergonomic school chairs have become increasingly popular, but they are only one component in a formula for creating a proper work space. Training tables and school desks work in conjunction with chairs to ensure that hands and wrists are positioned properly for writing or typing.

A 21st century school has to have technology in the classroom, and that often means bringing in computers. Children are learning to utilize digital resources from a very young age, and it is important to make sure that they start off typing with correct positioning. If proper habits are developed from the beginning, maintaining them will be a natural, effortless process.

The benefits of starting young with ergonomic furniture aren't limited to creating the right habits. Some of the most common muscle and joint conditions adults suffer from are developed over years of improper posture and positioning. The earlier students learn the correct ways to sit and work, the less likely they will be to develop pain later.

Many professionals spend countless hours every week seated at desks. Ergonomic office furniture is key for helping everyone from computer programmers to lawyers to accountants maximize productivity and look forward to work every day. One thing to think about when choosing ergonomic desks or office chairs is that different people need different designs and configurations. Ergonomics is all about making sure that every individual can create their perfect fit with the right positioning. There is no single solution that will fit every person. Investing in the right furniture will pay off in the long run because it will reduce workplace injuries, causing less missed days of productivity.

There are certain arrangements that need to be made to enable one who is seated at an office desk to work in the proper position. Things that are often needed throughout the day should be placed within reach so people don't have to stretch or twist into unnatural positions to retrieve them. Knee clearance is necessary to enable feet to rest flat on the floor. The computer monitor should be at eye-level to eliminate eye strain, and a keyboard tray should rest under the worksurface so wrists are flat while typing.

Start creating your ergonomic classroom today with this wonderful collection of vibrant and supportive school furniture. The Inspiration classroom chair features a double-curved back with flex action so students can lean back in a natural posture. Integrated lumbar support fits the natural curve of the back. Inspiration combo desks have work surfaces with a curved inner edge so students can sit properly without having to stretch in order to access necessary supplies. With a selection of heights to choose from, children of all ages can sit with their feet resting flat on the floor and backs in the ideal position. Hertz Furniture has ergonomic school desks in a variety of shapes so you can create a flexible classroom that is furnished for proper positioning as well.

Computer tables with recessed monitors can help create an ergonomic office or school. With the computer screen positioned at a natural viewing angle, everyone can work more comfortably. NOVA computer tables put the monitor at an ergonomically-beneficial 35-degree angle, which is the position in which one naturally holds a book. Whether you are furnishing a school computer lab or corporate training room, ergonomic computer tables should be on the top of your list.

Anyone who works at a desk needs an appropriate ergonomic office chair. This is the piece of furniture that must endure the most wear and tear and has the most dramatic impact on how the body is positioned during the workday. Hertz Furniture has huge selection of ergonomic chairs to fit a variety of budgets and styles. With appropriate adjustable features, they will help school principals, secretaries and students stay on task and get the job done right.

A school is only as good as its furniture. If students and teachers aren't comfortable, conducting classes becomes way more challenging than it needs to be. Ergonomic tables and appropriate classroom chairs will keep all members of your school community happy. Designing an ergonomic classroom takes planning. If you need help figuring out which school furniture will best support your students, contact the experts at the Hertz Design Center for free project-planning advice.
