Skid Base chairs have been designed with students in mind, offering safety, comfort, and stability. Available in a in a range of styles and shapes, they offer differing skid-based leg designs. Employing modern seating technology, their solid base, and a comfortable top and back panel aid active learning. The looped legs improve overall stability and will not tip or tilt. This reduces risk of injury to students prone to fidgeting and leaning back. We do not recommend the skid design for use on polished wooden floors, laminate floors, or ceramic tiled floors.

Chairs in the classroom are used for long periods throughout the working day and over several years. Therefore, it is important that they are safe and comfortable. The design of this model has implemented an improved lumbar support for increased support and comfort. They aim to improve pupil posture by maintaining an optimum ergonomic structure. Benefit your student's wellbeing with our skid base chairs.

Our Range

Skid base chairs are available in a range of sizes suitable for multiple age groups. The chairs are stackable, capable of being stored for extended periods without risk of deterioration. The back panel can be square, thin, curved or contoured. They are portable and offer excellent comfort and flexibility. Some models utilise a cantilever skid base which is flexible and strong. Providing plenty of leg room, the chair supports the user’s movements, and the attached feet keep the chair stable.

The chairs feature a UV resistant property making them suitable for outdoor use. They are waterproof and heat resistant, ideal for canteens and dining rooms in schools, colleges, and universities. The chairs are scratch resistant, splash proof and easy to clean. Models utilise indestructible polypropylene frames which are capable of handling busy educational environments.

Best for Price

If you’re on a tight budget or you just want great value for money, the Hille E-Series would be an excellent choice. Being the lowest priced model in the range it offers you a surprising amount of choice and flexibility. You have a choice of three frame colours and 13 seat colours and can be stacked up to ten high. This makes them a great choice for events such as school plays and summer fairs. Simply store them away when not in use, a simple wipe down with a cloth will remove any dust. With a 10-year guarantee, you can be sure that these will not disappoint. As you would expect, this model conforms to EN1972 Part 1 & 2.
