Education Seating Refurbishment

Students and fabrics don’t mix. Food, drink, chewing gum, pen/crayon/felt tip marks along with an inquisitive nature makes it difficult to keep seating in tip top condition. This can have a demoralising image for staff, students and parents alike. Breathe new life into your existing seating and rejuvenate both your staff and students work environment. 

Seating used in educational environments is usually built to last. Your seating has already proven its durability, however, with continual use, the fabrics and foam get worn, torn or dirty. In most cases all that is required to return your seating to their former glory is a cost effective recover. With a little imagination your chairs can even be given a WOW! factor and look better than buying new. 

Refurbishment and reuse ticks all the boxes including being extremely environmentally friendly. Get ‘best value’ out of your existing student and staff seating by refurbishing with Waldron's,

Our Education Refurbishment and Reuse service includes the plugging of minor holes in the foam and a ¼” foam wrap before recovering to bulk out the existing foam and give good shape to the chairs. We use the same commercial, fabrics, vinyl and foam the original manufacturer uses making your chairs suitable and safe for use in educational work environments.

To minimise disruption, dust and noise pollution we carry out all work on our premises. Work can be scheduled throughout the year with larger projects pre-booked for over holiday breaks. For ad-hoc repairs we provide a regular weekly collection and delivery service to all areas we cover and several days a week in Central and Greater London. 

The Furniture and Furnishings (Fire Safety) Regulations 1988, provide the requirements for furniture used in domestic environments. All our materials and work are is carried out to meet BS7176:2007 the more stringent standards required for furniture used in commercial environments, such as educational establishments.

I am sitting proudly on my newly covered sofa. It looks very smart.

"............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."

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.

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,
