Outdoor Equipment
Whether you are arranging a new school playground or enhancing the courtyard of your building, Hertz Furniture has the outdoor equipment you need. Where should you put picnic benches and garbage cans? Make sure that your large picnic tables, trash cans and recycling bins are in attractive outdoor areas. Don't forget an eye-catching message board to promote awareness for all of the great things you are doing.

All of our products are constructed from high-quality materials and meet government safety and ADA guidelines. We provide free extended warranties, so you can be sure that your playground equipment will provide many years of safe fun.

What is the best playground equipment?

Having lots of things for kids to do at recess will make everyone's experience more enjoyable. With a large commercial playground equipment, you can provide tons of activities for your students in one sturdy unit. Recess is more than just play, it is an opportunity to get out some energy, socialize and develop motor skills. With plenty of things to climb up, slide down and swing on, all children can benefit from the free time.

Our playgrounds come in a number of different sizes and styles from Kidstuff Play Systems and UltraPlay. Whether you need equipment for a small private preschool or large public elementary school, we have a number of great models to choose from. Be sure to check the capacity and dimensions of the playgrounds you are considering to ensure that they will fit your student population and physical space.

While children are at play, supervisors need a place to watch them from. Recess is not a break for teachers, they need to keep an eye on the children, but that doesn't mean they have to be standing or sitting in an uncomfortable place. A few durable outdoor benches placed in close proximity to play equipment will provide educators with an appropriate place to sit and supervise. Children might also appreciate having a place to sit down and take a break from all of the action.

Great outdoor seating can also add a lot to the experience of sports teams. Long team benches will fit well in the dugout or on the sidelines of the soccer field. Student athletes will enjoy sitting on the sidelines and cheering on their teammates as they prepare to get in the game and contribute as well.

What should I look for in a picnic table?

Help your students enjoy the beautiful weather and offer an alternative to the indoor cafeteria with UltraPlay picnic tables. Vibrant colors and a selection of shapes can create an attractive configuration for any space. These durable picnic benches are built to withstand the elements with high-tech thermoplastic coating that will keep them looking like new through many years of use and enjoyment.

Do I need trash cans on the playground?

Having proper waste receptacles is important for every eating area and playground. If there are no trash cans around, people are likely to leave garbage on play equipment or picnic tables, rather than carrying it around in search of a proper place to dispose of it. Well-placed garbage cans encourage students and employees to clean up after themselves, so your cleaning staff won't have to do extra work.

Garbage bins are available in a selection of colors and styles. Bright hues can be matched to play grounds for a coordinated space. In a professional setting, subdued shades that blend in with the surroundings will provide proper waste disposal without detracting from manicured gardens or elegant courtyards.

How can I go green at school?

When considering the waste disposal options, every eco-friendly company and school needs recycle bins. They can be placed right next to trash cans so no one even has to go out of their way to recycle. Promoting environmentally-friendly initiatives teaches students that it's not hard to be green at school -- or anywhere else. Glaro recycling cans are convenient for students and the maintenance staff who empties out waste receptacles because they keep materials organized and properly sorted.

What is the best way to promote an event?

With great outdoor furniture and equipment from Hertz Furniture, you can host lots of exciting events in your school or church. To promote your event and ensure that the community stays informed about upcoming holiday parties, assemblies and more, use our wide selection of enclosed bulletin boards and outdoor message boards. With a cork board or letter board in the front of the building, you can easily display messages to passerby. This will keep all members and potential newcomers informed about the exciting programming that you have planned. To make messages even more prominent, consider a model with illumination or a custom header.

At Hertz Furniture, we have all of the outdoor equipment you need to furnish playgrounds, courtyards, picnic areas and more. With the right outdoor furniture, students and employees will just love spending breaks outside and getting energized for the rest of the day.

Being eco friendly isn't just a passing fad, it's a better way of life.

From office furniture to classroom furniture and everything in between, don't hesitate to fill your space with eco friendly models. With such a great selection, you can stay true to your values and still decorate your space according to your own personal preferences.

So what exactly is eco friendly furniture? If you see a school desk or office chair with a Greenguard or MAS Certified Green symbol next to it, you can be sure that it has been tested and found to have low volatile organic compounds (VOCs) emissions. VOCs are the main cause of indoor air pollution- which is just as unhealthy and undesirable as it sounds. If you want to have a healthy work environment for your students and employees, certified green is the way to go.

What are the benefits of green and eco-friendly classrooms?

In addition to giving students a healthier classroom environment, studies show the profound influence eco-friendly classrooms have on learning. According to research from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, learning spaces with high air quality and natural lighting conditions can boost productivity. Furthermore, sustainable facilities can improve student performance by up to 20%.

It's not hard to be green at school or in the office when you have so many models to choose from. Green building and sustainability are only becoming more and more important. Because we are more aware than ever of the impact pollution can have on our planet, there has been a big push for product manufacturers to address the impact of their products on the environment. This is definitely a good thing that we should be happy about. It also means there are no excuses for an office not taking advantage of all the green options. With so many passionate environmentalists out there, don't be surprised if the right eco friendly office furniture starts earning you some new clients.

Even people who are passionate about taking care of the environment might not have time to research all kinds of materials and products. An environmentalist also doesn't have to be someone who has studied the field in an academic setting. A person can care about health and sustainability without understanding anything about chemical compounds used in manufacturing. For everyone out there who cares, Certified Green products can be trusted. Experts who know everything about chemical emissions and sustainability have checked these products thoroughly, and if they give their certification, you know you can count on it.

There are many different green certifications out there, but a lot of them are looking for similar things. If you are worried about VOCs, MAS Certified Green products have passed extensive emissions testing performed by experts in the field. The tests are in compliance with industry standards. Products with the SCS stamp of approval are part of sustainable solutions. SCS is determined to safeguard our environment, support workers and communities and raise the standard of living for all.

Eco friendly companies that are selling furniture still need to be concerned about the buyer's needs in terms of comfort and style. Luckily, there are certifications that combine ratings for comfortable and eco friendly office furniture. The CHPS symbol recognizes products that are comfortable, healthy, energy-efficient and safe.Schools should definitely look for this certification on products they are considering because high indoor air quality and good daylight keep students healthy and happy so they can learn better. With the right designs, distractions are reduced so students can see and hear properly.

Office and school furniture that is ANSI BIFMA certified is recognized for comfort, safety, sustainability and durability. BIFMA guidelines help eco friendly furniture stores promote good environmental equilibrium, health and well-being. With a standard that tests durability, you can be sure that your school chairs or office desks will be around for a long time. The longer your office chair lasts and maintains a professional appearance, the less materials you will have to waste by replacing it.

When you are looking for some new bookcases or computer chairs, make sure to go green. When you buy from environmentally friendly companies, you invest in the future of your company or school. Make the eco friendly choice to start working toward a better tomorrow today.
