Height Adjustable Classroom Tables
With our trademarked SmarTable™ products, students can adjust to 5 different heights with a simple push button mechanism. No need to use any tools, our table comes with a simple to use self-locating lock device. This allows students and teachers to adjust their table height to their own comfort or year level. We’ve broken down the recommended heights for students based on grade level and our height adjustment levels are 520, 580, 640, 700 and 7600 mm high. For many schools, many different students walk into a classroom per day. Therefore, we make it easy for students to adjust their height prior to class starting. Comfort and increased learning for students isn’t our only priority when designing and manufacturing our SmarTables. We prioritize the health of our end users as well. Desks with a set position can incentivize slouching leading to lower back pain and neck strains. Our tables also feature tabletops that are made from environmentally sustainable E0 Board ensuring cleaner air quality in classrooms everywhere. All of our tabletops are built to last due to our high tensile steel frame material to withstand heavy load capacity. To add further strength and durability, we have a fully welded frame system to ensure the table is sturdy. With old tables that use screws and nails, table legs can wear down over time causing an unbalanced working environment.
Single Student Classroom Desks
Not every classroom or learning environment is the same. Depending on the subject taught, there needs to be a desk that fits the purpose for each classroom. For example, test taking or quiet study would require single student desks, where each student is isolated from one another which helps promote focus. Our single student SmarTable™ includes different shapes such as the Twist Single Student Table, Carve Student Table and Jotter Table. Our single student desks are extremely lightweight and mobile, so re-arranging desks is not an issue.
Whiteboard Surface Classroom Tables
One problem with the old way of learning is failing to realize that students tend to learn differently depending on the individual. There are four primary types of learners which are visual, auditory, reading/writing and kinesthetic. At BFX, we offer SmarTables™ with a whiteboard surface that allows students to write and erase on their desk with a dry erase marker to promote collaborative and creative thinking.
When students are working on a project together, it’s very beneficial to draw or write out their ideas. While you can technically just write them out on paper, students will have a larger space to work with and be able draw out their ideas creatively. Being able to see their outline written out, drawing up a draft of their art project, or write out their problem area of their code, gives end users the ability to visually connect the dots and brainstorm new ideas. For elementary schools and pre-schools, you can use these whiteboard murals as a place to play such as student drawings, games of hangman, poems and more.
Mobile Classroom Desks
Having the option for mobile desks will save your school a lot of time and energy especially when it comes to classroom setup. The student count for each classroom is continuously changing every semester, and having a desk with wheels allows your staff to easily move tables and desks around with ease. No more having to strain yourself carrying heavy desks or using clunky dollies, instead simply roll these tables inside classrooms or storage rooms with ease. Our heavy duty castors make your classroom furniture more agile than ever before.
Multiple Student Classroom Tables
Shop our full range of multiple student desks which come in many different shapes and sizes. Whether you’re looking for a round table for student group discussions, double student tables for duo project pairings or a boomerang table excellent for lecture style classrooms, we have something for every learning environment. Having multiple student desks are great for collaborative discussions, so that students can bounce their ideas off one another. In most workplace environments, being able to work as a team is essential. Therefore teaching students to work together and share ideas amongst one another is a crucial stepping stone to success. These tables also offer a wider capacity for students to spread their school supplies giving them ample space to work in.
Sit Stand Tables Classroom Desks & Tables
Many of our height adjustable tables also have the ability for students to adjust to a standing height. Standing improves blood flow and circulation which increases the ability to concentrate. Even in the most healthy ergonomic sitting position, humans weren’t made to sit all day. Sitting in uncomfortable positions can cause pressure on the intervertebral disc. The most ideal situation is to alternate between sitting and standing positions to keep our bodies healthy and active. Active learning requires movement and students have reported an increase in attention span with sit stand tables. Furthermore a study done at the Mayo Clinic demonstrated that students can burn an additional 340 calories per day simply by adjusting to standing for 1-2 hours per day.
Fresh Colour Choices
Customise your table by choosing the colours for each tabletop. We offer a wide selection of colours of harmonious and vibrant colors such as in Zenworks, New Graphite, Rural Oak, Raw Birch, Blue, Polar White, Natural Oak, AquaMarine and many more. With 22 colours to choose from, you can bring your dream classroom to life.
To further enhance your classroom look, we recommend Coloured Edging to add an extra flair to your tables and desks. Having these colours are perfect for colour coordinating groups to easily assign group projects and different tasks.
