KI has supplied its new range of Postura+ chairs to The Bushey Academy new building designed by Architects Co-Partnership.
The innovative building provides state of the art accommodation for 1350 students including 300 post 16 students.
The main entrance is located on the south elevation adjacent to the Main Hall. In front of it is the new pedestrian plaza. The three-storey glass facade provides an open and welcoming entrance to the academy allowing views through into the building and to the landscaped quadrangle. The quadrangle incorporates amphitheatre type seating to allow for outdoor performances and new covered walkways to the south and north sides.
A central three-storey “Market Place” atrium providing informal meeting, teaching and learning spaces plus dining, internet café and cutting edge ICT facilities, sits at the heart of the building. There is also a wide range of teaching areas from traditional classrooms to open-plan studios and workshops.
KI’s Postura+ range of seven sizes of stackable chairs provided for the new academy, are available in a variety of colours & are manufactured in the UK. The chair is ergonomically designed to promote good posture and provide exceptional comfort for students.
Andrew Hemming’s, Principal at The Bushey Academy commented:
“The academy consciously sought out these chairs because they are proven to be robust, sturdy and comfortable and, because of their clever design, they are very safe as it completely eliminates the age-old issue of students being able to rock back and balance on simply the two back legs of the chair. Every classroom in the new building is equipped with these chairs.”
Moulded from high impact resistant polypropylene, Postura+ is strong, durable and light, enabling the safe vertical stacking of 12 chairs. The lower back lumbar design ensures perfect ergonomics whilst the graduating seat curve supports ‘perch’ and ‘full’ sitting positions and the unique waterfall edge of the seat provides comfort. The angled back legs prevent the chair from rocking or slipping and will not twist or distort.
Postura+ is fully BS EN1729 certified in all seven sizes, with Crib 5 high fire retardancy and has a 10 years warranty. The chair is anti-static and stain-resistant helping it to stay cleaner for longer.
