Choose from basic school desks, school desks with book boxes and double-student desks. Save on both floor space and expense with combo desks and tablet-arm desks. Exclusive series such as Innovation, Inspiration, Illustration and Educational Edge add diversity and flexibility to any classroom; wheelchair-accessible desks allow all your students the opportunity to excel. You'll find the best school desks for today's classrooms at Hertz Furniture.
School desks are available in a variety of materials as well as styles. The most important material to consider is the work surface. If you are looking for a low-budget option, high-pressure laminate is smooth and offers basic damage resistance, but will begin to show wear and tear through the years. Hard plastic is scratch- and stain-resistant, easy to clean, and often includes a convenient pencil groove. Hard plastic desktops will stand up to years of student use- and abuse.
A third option is Hertz Furniture’s exclusive WoodStone desktops. WoodStone is produced by Academia. It has the same damage resistance and easy cleaning as hard plastic, but costs and weighs much less. If you are looking for the most durable, budget-friendly option, WoodStone is the way to go.
A strong desktop needs sturdy support, and that is what the desk frame is for. It is a good idea to check if the models you are looking at have steel frames, and if so, f what gauge. Although a 16-gauge steel frame is stronger than an 18-gauge steel frame, you might decide that you don’t require the higher degree of toughness. In addition to the steel gauge, the frame may also have a U-brace for added reinforcement. U-braces make desk frames much stronger. Some desks have unitized frames. Unitized frames can stand freely; they are not held together by a desktop or bookbox.
Speaking of book-boxes, students are sure to appreciate the convenience of built-in accessible storage. Book-boxes can be made out of metal or plastic and rest just underneath the desktop. They store binders, notebooks, textbooks, school supplies and more. If there is a concern of open storage becoming a distraction during class, lift-lid book-boxes are an easy solution. They offer the same accessibility and convenience but will prevent students from playing becoming distracted by desk contents during class.
Combo desks offer the book-basket alternative. Wire-mesh book-baskets can rest directly underneath attached chairs. They keep books, notebooks, and anything else students need within reach yet out of sight.
Combo desks are super convenient because they provide proportionate chairs and desk surfaces. These attached units eliminate the need to push-in chairs or make sure that there are enough seats for the desks in the classroom. Chair desks are available with the same selection of surface materials as classic school desks
Desk legs come in a selection of styles. Adjustable-height legs can suit students of different sizes. They enable you to provide all students with a perfectly-fit desk, and give you the flexibility to change around your school furniture among various classrooms and grades. Classic four-legged school desk models are available as well as T-leg, the three-legged Innovation model, and sled-based combo desks.
Once the structural features of a desk are considered, you can move on to stylistic aspects. All desktop materials are available in a choice of colors. If you are looking for that extra splash of vibrancy or coordination, Educational Edge desks have colored edge banding that can be coordinated with your classroom. Another excellent choice is the Inspiration school desk, which has a coordinated bookbox and boot-glide color.
When considering the optimal desks for students, don’t forget to accommodate their teachers. The teacher’s desk is an important piece of classroom furniture. Hertz Furniture offers teacher’s desks in a variety of styles, that can suit any budget. Teacher’s desks are available with different drawer configurations, materials and work surface sizes.
