How School Chair Repair Can Encourage A More Focused Educational Environment

Ergonomic chairs are now a fixture in most schools; able to be adjusted to cater for the different sitting requirements of each pupil, they help them to find their perfect level of comfort – ideal to keep them focused on work, instead of them feeling distracted and fidgeting.

But what happens when the conditions and functions of seating starts to/does break down? For many schools, the cost of purchasing new items may prove to be difficult to meet and instead, older, rigid furniture is brought from storage as a replacement. There is a cost-effective solution to be found though – school chair repair.

Not only can such a service save your school much cost in purchasing brand-new items, did you know that it can also help you on the way to creating a more-focused environment too?

How School Chair Repair Can Help To Create A More Focused Environment

With school chair repair bringing your establishment’s ergonomic seating items back to great useable condition, you (and your pupils) will benefit by:

  • Increased movement. Over the years, research has found that the way humans sit leaves us prone to adjusting ourselves to fit the constraints of the seating, be it to find balance or a comfortable position. This is the fundamental benefit of ergonomic seating and so if its functions break down, so will its effect on our body’s movement.
  • Healthier bodies. Traditional classroom seating was produced to encourage pupils to sit bolt upright, which would apparently make pupils more attentive. Instead, more contemporary times have made us understand that such chairs are not conducive to encouraging a healthy posture – and as children are constantly growing and developing, the way they sit at school may have a big impact on their physical health in the long-term too.
  • Better learning. One of the biggest turn-offs to learning is the distracting environment that you’re sitting in. Some distractions can be controlled immediately – chatting in class, bright light coming through the windows or the heating being on full-blast (when it’s no need to be) – but others are uncontrollable during a particular moment, such as the condition and functions of seating. Either way, distractions experienced by pupils will not help to engage them in what’s being taught – school chair repair can help to bring ergonomic furniture back to working order, removing that ‘uncontrollable distraction’ and allowing pupils to find their ideal comfort levels.

The chairs are fantastic Thanks so much. The 2 chairs you reupholstered look fantastic. I thought they were two new ones they look so good. In fact our receptionist liked them so much she’s grabbed one immediately and swapped it.

Nuffield Foundation
We have been very impressed with your service. Both the quality of the workmanship and your coutesy has made it a pleasure dealing with you. Thank you for a beautifully refurbished chair Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 ......... I am writing to confirm just how pleased we have been with the work you have done for us recently. The recovered chairs, apart from now being exactly the colour we wanted, look as good as new and have made the surgery look the way we want it to look. Many, many thanks - we will be recommending you whenever the opportunity arises.

"............before "finding" Waldron, I had received some very negative responses from several other upholstery firms.......... ..........from the time Waldron was recommended to me I received helpful, sympathetic and effective advice, from my initial enquiry, with no "pushy" sales pressure at any time.......... Given the complex work involved, and choice of strong material, and the high quality of personal service I thought your charges were extremely reasonable. Certainly infinitely cheaper than having to completely replace an essential chair. I was delighted with the work done. The upholstery looks to have been done to a very high standard, on what as I have mentioned was quite a challenging chair to work on. The fabric looks superb, and in fact the chair looks better than it did before I am so pleased that I have found Waldrons and will not hesitate to recommend your Company to anyone i have contact with who might be seeking a similar service."

Just a quick line to ask you to pass on our compliments to those involved in the recent recovering of chairs, and re-webbing, new cushions, etc. The service throughout was excellent – including the collection and delivery – and there have been lots of positive, admiring comments from staff, pupils and parents. If you have potential customers requesting testimonials, please don’t hesitate to ask them to contact me. With many thanks,
