Fabric: Huge range of fabrics from Waldron

Education Seating Refurbishment

The academic year is hard on both student and staff seating. Budget constraints mean that it is not always a priority to replace it, so the chairs have to make do for another year. However, there is an alternative, which is both financially and environmentally viable.

Educational seating is usually very robust and is made to last. Often there is only cosmetic damage, mainly to the fabric and foam. This can be resolved with a simple cost-effective recover.

Revitalise your work and teaching areas with a new look by changing fabric, texture or colour. With a little imagination your chairs can be given a real Wow! factor.

Choose from hundreds of contract qualiy fabrics meeting fire and durablity requirements to make them suitable and safe for use in educational environments.

Waldron Seating Services can help you get best value from your existing seating whilst freeing up budget for other priorities.

Many schools set up a regular program of work over several years to spread the cost and keep their seating up to standard.

Chair Repair and Refurbishment Projects completed for the Education sector


Staff had an unexpected surpise when they returned from the summer break.

Their staff room modular seating had been revitalised with a refoam and change of fabric colour.


Chairs from this special school are recovered, a classroom at a time, on a rolling programme.

New vinyl and new foam, expertly upholstered to ensure that the classrooms were a welcoming place to return to after the summer break.


This Common Room modular seating was recovered in fluidproof Agua Nova microfibre fabric, making it practical, very tactile and comfortable

Nova is water resistant but breathable like fabric. It's stain resistant, antbacterial/antimicrobial treatment makes it easy to keep clean.

Stacking chairs

Stacking chairs, used in countless schools across the country. Dirty and grimy, worn and torn from constant use, these were repaired and recovered in Camira Mainline Plus fire retardant, woven tweed fabric.

Side chairs before and after contract reupholstery

Before and after!

New foam and fabric have made an enormous difference to the look and comfort of these side chairs.

Recovered in Camira Mainline Plus fire retardant tweed fabric.


We refurbish a substantial number of original Ercol low level wood framed chairs. The wooden frames and joints are often in excellent condition and all that is required is a recover and a reweb to give many, more years of service.
