Want to know more about Activity Tables

Different activity table shapes

There are reasons for project and science lab tables to come in a variety of shapes. They are not just for fun, although the shapes often appeal to younger kids. Traditional square tables and rectangle activity tables can seat several kids in one area to help save space in the classroom. Kidney and horseshoe-shaped desks have a side that is pushed in almost to the center of the table so teachers can sit within easy reach of every child without having to stretch their arms too far. Flower and round office tables allow children to sit facing each other to work together, chat, and get to know one another.

Types of classroom and science lab tables

Choose the right type of classroom or office tables based on intended use or the age group that will use them. For kids, consider a resin table that is smooth and resistant to stains or scratches. These tables are easy to clean after spills and messes. In the lab, high-pressure laminate surfaces can handle the heat from Bunsen burners and are chemical-resistant in case of dangerous spills. For long lasting use, rectangular extra strong activity tables not only have laminate tops but also have thick tabletops and sturdy legs to handle weight, heat, and years of use.

Activity table features

An activity desk will often have several features that make working or helping kids easier. Some useful school activity table extras include:

  • Colored banding grips on corners and edges for safety
  • Adjustable legs that raise and lower the height of the table
  • Swivel leg glides that allow users to swivel the table in full circles, making it easy to move around corners
  • Ball glides that protect the floor from scratches and scuffs when moving the desk
  • Open spaces on the sides to place books out of the way when not needed
