UK Schools, Colleges and Universities Rely on for Contemporary Classroom Furniture


San Fransisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/11/2012 -- A comfortable classroom is essential if students are to get the best out of their lessons. A child wriggling around on an uncomfortable chair is unlikely to be listening to their teacher. Lessons today are also more interactive than they were in the past, so it’s important for classroom furniture to be flexible, modular and movable.

Gone are the days of hard wooden chairs and desks. Today’s school classroom is fitted out in vibrant colours to create an exciting learning environment.

Not all furniture companies keep up to date with the latest trends in the classroom and that’s one of the main reasons why Barnsley based Metalliform Holdings is so successful.

“We offer outstanding flexibility with the largest possible colour choice for tops, shells, frames and edges. We are constantly evolving our range of contemporary products to serve a changing world,” states a spokesperson.

Metalliform Holdings takes design seriously but also believes in high quality standards, a spokesperson commented:

“Design is important but school furniture has to be functional and hard wearing. We are members of BESA, The manufactures’ organisation, UKAS Quality Management, UKAS Environmental Management and we are IMS ISO 9100 and 14001 certified. These accreditations and memberships illustrate our commitment to quality.” offers visitors the opportunity to browse and purchase from their large range of school furniture, this includes everything from basic classroom furniture like tables and chairs through to gym and outdoor activity equipment. Each product is accompanied by high quality digital imagery, a full product description and the available sizes.

Metalliform also offer a new build solution, offering bespoke solutions to new schools. A spokesperson explained:

“We integrate our specialist project management team into the new build project team, our project management team validates layouts, reviews orders, liaises with the new build team and inspects all work on site.
