Things to consider when buying Library furniture

1. Durability

Your new library furniture should be designed for all day and everyday use so needs to be made from high quality materials.

  • Material like vinyl should be used on soft seating
  • Solid beech or plywood frames should be specified over chipboard
  • The seating should use commercial-grade foams
  • All materials should be wipeable so they can be easily maintained

2. Modular furniture

Your new furniture should be modular so it can be easily rearranged into different configurations for classes, talks and studying.

  • Seating and tables should be easily connected and disconnected
  • Curved shapes should be ordered to make different seating configurations
  • Modular also means if one part of the furniture is damaged it can be easily replaced

3. Seat heights

The size of a library user can vary from primary children to adult users. If you need a specific height for different areas in your library make sure everyone is catered for.

  • The typical seat height for an adult is around 45 cm
  • Lower and higher seat heights can be specified
  • Height adjustable study chairs
  • Height adjustable tables

4. Lightweight furniture

If you need to move your library furniture around daily it should be reasonably lightweight and easy to move.

Types of furniture for easy movement:

  • Modular seating with wheels
  • Folding tables with wheels
  • Study chairs with wheels

The modular seating and tables have locking wheels to make sure they stay in one position when stationary.

5. Fire rating

Unlike domestic furniture, some commercial buildings might have a Crib5 fire rating where any furniture will need to be Crib5 fire rated.

  • Crib5 means the foam and upholstery material have been tested and certified to a certain fire retardancy
  • Crib5 materials include fabric and vinyl
  • Other furniture like tables are not usually fire tested
