Choosing the Right Computer Workstations for Your School

Computers have become an integral part of today’s schools and classrooms. Most schools have a designated computer room for students to visit, or they have individual computers within the classes. In addition to that, teachers and classroom assistants use computers during their instructions. All of this hinges on one important piece of school furniture – a computer workstation.

In this guide, we will go over how to choose the right computer workstation for your school so you can make a sound investment from the start.

Think of the Age and Height of the User

Will your computer workstations be for kids or adults? If they will be for children, how old and how tall how are they? Here at WR Hardware, we offer a wide range of computer desks that vary in height, width, depth, etc. You can get the exact size and dimensions you need for your computer users, and you can trust that they will be sturdy enough to last for years to come.

Measure the Space You Have for the Workstations

Not only do you have to think about the people using the computer stations, but you also have to think about the rooms they are going in. If you have small, cramped classrooms, you may not have a lot of space for a large computer desk. In the same light, you would not want to get tiny desks for a giant, open room. If you need the desks to be stored when not in use, make sure they have a folding or stacking function. Once again, we have an assortment of school furniture options to suit your needs.

Consider the Mobility and Adjustability of the Computer Desk

Do you need the workstation to move from room to room? Do you want it to have adjustable height and width settings? We offer adjustable and mobile computer work stations to provide maximum versatility and user-friendliness. The mobile workstations are particularly convenient for schools that share computers for specific functions (one computer has a special program that most of the other computers do not have). If you have an open classroom setting where several classes are in a big room separated by bookshelves, these mobile computer stations can easily be transported from one area to the next. At the end of the day, you need something that will truly fulfill all your usage requirements.

What about Laptop Storage?

If you use laptops in your classroom, you may not need a desk for your computers. Instead, you need a storage cabinet where the computers can be locked away and removed as needed. WR Hardware sells laptop storage carts that can hold multiple laptops at the same time, and many of them are on wheels so they can be moved from class to class. We also carry laptop stands, which don’t have the bulky storage features required for a standard desktop. These may be more ideal for your school’s needs than a traditional computer workstation.
