JK Furniture Systems have been successfully serving the education sector for a number of years now. We design, build and install both loose and fixed made-to-measure furniture that optimises space.
Since our inception in 2004, we have been providing educational establishments with quality classic and bespoke furniture, expertly manufactured by our time served craftsmen, in our own purpose built modern premises. During an ever changing environment our business has evolved into providing fixed and loose furniture incorporating an excellent design, build and installation service to Nurseries, Schools, Colleges & Universities throughout England, Wales & the Southern Counties of Scotland.
We have vast experience in working closely with architects and builders on both new build propositions and refurbishment projects throughout the UK and can provide potential customers with glowing references from our many satisfied customers.
Classrooms are complex, sophisticated and expensive workspaces. Mistakes in planning and building, or in furniture selection and installation can be extremely costly, as well as unsafe. That’s why JK Furniture Systems’ experience is so valuable to schools and colleges just like yours. Every room in the establishment could be professionally designed for optimum safety and maximum functionality, furnished with the appropriate instruments, equipment and suitable complimentary furniture, and should be a place where education and motivation can be the main focus. At JK Furniture Systems, we take our role seriously. We commit ourselves to a level of unsurpassed service which ensures that your classroom, cloakroom, reception or library environment will meet education specifications, address important regulatory requirements, and satisfy multiple user needs.
We continuously look at new approaches to educational design, to reflect new ways of working, advances in technology and IT, and our understanding of work space ergonomics. We manufacture and install furniture that compliments and defines your educational culture, improves workflow and makes the classroom space an emotive and more productive environment – somewhere pupils and staff will want to work.
We build our products around your specific needs – for example – JK Furniture Systems are the leading supplier of Interactive Whiteboard Steps – a product which initially was designed with one particular school in mind after a teacher complained of lower back pain, having to bend every time she used the board because the board was too low for her. The school in question then paid a costly sum to have the interactive whiteboard moved to accommodate the teacher’s height, only to find that the pupils were then too small to reach it! This dilemma was solved by our design team who created the Interactive Whiteboard Step.
Seat and Storage System. This innovative design provides an ideal seated teaching position, as well as providing little ones with the ability to reach the board and providing extra storage space which is essential in every busy classroom. Since the product was first introduced 8 years ago, we have sold thousands of them and now manufacture 12 different versions in single or twin step models, with heights designed to accommodate the smallest of nursery children to bigger junior sized pupils. Each model comes complete with Gratnell trays in a choice of colours and “Easy Clean” carpeted steps. Our twin models provide the added advantage of having a lift-up lid for extra storage space.
We have also introduced a range of accessories that compliment the Steps – our computer workstation sits at either side of the step unit and provides the teacher with a handy place to store computers and other IT equipment that is essential for everyday teaching. Our complimentary bookcases, tray units/cupboards and storage seats have also proved a big hit with teaching professionals. All these products can be supplied independent of the Whiteboard Step and adapted to be mobile or standalone units.
The public areas of a school portray the overall environment and promote its visions and values to all visitors. One of JK Furniture Systems’ specialities is converting corridors and cloakrooms into the tidiest spaces within your school. We provide a standard range of mix and match cloakroom furniture such as basic coat hooks and benching, shoe and bag storage, overhead/under counter cupboards and back-to-back or side-by-side cloak units. Sometimes, in order to optimise space and achieve maximum possible function, standard furniture often needs a helping hand. Our bespoke service offers a cost effective solution when and where required.
Whatever your fixed or loose furniture needs with JK Furniture Systems you can be sure you have found a manufacturer who puts your establishment’s needs first. From design to after sales care our experienced customer service team will be with you every step of the way.
