Mahwah, NJ August 28, 2008 Larger students will now be able to sit comfortably and fidget less during class with the addition of 19" classroom chairs from Academia Furniture, a division of Hertz Furniture. Keeping up with current trends in ergonomic school furniture, Academia has created the new 19" chair to provide ergonomic yet stylish support for older and larger students. Available in two popular styles and a variety of eye pleasing colors, these school chairs are the latest additions to Academia Furniture's popular Inspiration and Classic Poly Chair lines.

"We want our classroom furniture to be exactly what schools are looking for", said Mr. Mark Wagner, President of Academia Furniture. "When speaking to schools about their needs, classroom chairs for bigger students kept coming up, so we filled that need with our new 19" chairs. School furniture used to be the same standard products for years. It's time to pay far greater attention to ergonomics and student comfort, based on the concept that a comfortable student will sit still and pay attention for longer periods of time. As with all our school furniture, these student chairs are covered by our limited lifetime warranty, making them a great deal for all types of schools."

The 19" school chair is part of the exciting Inspiration line of Academia school furniture, which has been designed to be as comfortable and esthetically pleasing as possible. The Inspiration line includes adjustable height school desks and a sleek new combo desk unit. All of the Inspiration student chairs come in eight exciting colors, with matching glide boots, sure to complement any classroom décor. As with the rest of the line, custom colors are available in larger quantities as special orders. The chair backs feature 17 reinforcing ridges for strong support and are shaped for superior ergonomic comfort. The seats are supported by high-quality 14-gauge steel frames. In addition to the new, larger size, the chairs come in 13", 16" and 18" sizes.

Academia has also created a 19" version of the popular Classic Poly school chair. A staple of classroom seating for years, these comfortable chairs suit students and teachers alike. Available in 11 colors, Classic Poly classroom chairs feature strong steel frames with integral back supports, which are riveted beneath the seat to eliminate unsightly and uncomfortable exposed rivets. Other sizes available are 12", 14", 16" and 18" chairs and the shells are available on a wide array of chair/desk combination units. The new 19" school chair also comes with the options of a book basket, casters, padded seat, and a sled base variation.

19" school chairs are perfectly proportioned for the older, larger student, as well as teachers and school staff. With a limited lifetime warranty, these chairs will be a welcome addition to any school that wants all of its students to be able to sit comfortably and pay attention during class.
