Benefits of Installing Outdoor Furniture for the New School Year
Back to school has historically been a fun time to shop for things that will make life easier for students with their parents. But schools are also looking to improve the school experience and add to the institution without taking on too much expense or future maintenance responsibility. Outdoor furniture like Premier Polysteel manufactures is a perfect fit for the new school year for districts and campuses everywhere in need of improvements or in search of ways to create additional functional, sitting or relaxing space.
As for the Premier Polysteel catalog of products, a wide variety of commercial quality accessories like bike racks, waste receptacles and umbrellas, complement core offerings like picnic and lunch tables, that contribute to the overall benefit of students and staff throughout the school year.
Traditionally lunch and recess areas are popular spots for outdoor furniture in schools. Premier Polysteel has been a part of that layout for many years. Our commercial quality outdoor products are an obvious inclusion for the education picnic table and bench market.
But this year you might consider looking at increasing options to enhance those outdoor spaces and help improve the quality of life during the school day for all stakeholders on campus.
Benefits of carefully selected outdoor furniture for the kids
Outdoor classroom settings have been in use here and there for decades, but a recent push outside has helped to bring about a change in mindset for teachers looking to engage with students in the broader world. The idea that the brain can function better with changing stimulus combined with the natural draw to the outdoors has made it more conducive to teaching successfully while students take in the sights and grab a little sun.
When the weather is good and the infrastructure exists, it’s great to have that option to get the class out into the open. Premier Polysteel offers the right equipment at a solid price point to help school decision makers justify this desirable swing in behaviors. Having a cluster of tables to teach group projects but still allow breakout groups to study together pushes innovative thought and encourages the creativity of students. All students can be included in an accessible outdoor space that aligns with ADA regulations and feels more student centric (we have a large selection of fully inclusive ADA compliant pieces).
Supplementing the tables with benches and specialty accessories means you can outfit the entire grounds with a responsible budget, and remain confident in the longevity of the seating and other items we sell. Having proper trash receptacles, umbrellas and the ability to mount umbrellas on nearly every table design as well as secure bike racks, and buddy benches encourages the staff and students to take advantage of the great outdoor spaces more often and with a better focus. Utility shines when you’re using practical, secure and safe products like those we sell.
Students can be more social without the worry that they will be disrupting the classroom. With proper guidance, the outdoor spaces can become a place to learn, encourage inclusiveness and help students improve on social skills.
Creating a relaxing environment
The flat tabletop on our perforated steel version of our tables means that it’s easier to write on or read a book on the tabletops. The students can enjoy learning just that much more when they are in a calming environment. The ambient sounds and mild weather can combine to be a real treat for students and staff alike.
Lunchtime Options for schools
Comfortable recess and food service areas are important in an outdoor campus area. The many variables that go into making a table with our designs allow you to improve outdoor eating breaks and provide ancillary seating at other times. We give you the option of rectangular or square tables to maximize the volume of students in tables over a small footprint, or to choose round tables for a more versatile feeling layout.
Break areas for Staff
Improve the staff quality of life by facilitating a better outdoor break space and giving comfortable, weather resistant seating year round. Under a shade structure or out in the open, when a user sits on our furniture, they don’t get scalded by a hot seating surface or frostbitten by an exposed piece of steel, the temperature is moderated by the polyvinyl coating regardless of season.
Durability and Safety
A 20 year warranty only highlights what countless schools and parks and higher education institutions already know – Plastisol coated steel outdoor furniture by Premier Polysteel lasts a long time. It looks good for a very long time and it is safe to use year round without being too cold or too hot. There will be no exposed sharp edges, no rust and no place to hide spiders, bees or bugs. The designs of our outdoor furniture are well thought out and we have a proven track record in the space.
Cohesive look and feel
Twelve color options means you’re sure to find a table, bench or accessories that harmonize with your mascot and school spirit. Customization options allow you to push the boundaries for a color scheme that supports your needs.
Benefits of selecting Premier Polysteel outdoor furniture for a schoolyard or playground
One important feature of our product line is that we offer a plethora of mounting options that allows you to determine the best solution for your school’s needs. From benches facing each other in a movable format that aren’t tied to the ground or sunk into concrete footings, to tables that can be mounted permanently, we offer unique layouts and the ultimate in versatility.
Products that Premier Polysteel offers that fit perfectly in the school setting
While we’ve mentioned it above, it cannot be overstated how important accessory pieces are in an educational setting; particularly trash receptacles and bike racks; and benches for sports fields and common areas. These are huge quality of life upgrades for the student body year round.
