New on SmithFiles Blog: How Classroom Design Affects Student Learning http://smith.ly/1ssnFG7
Whether new or existing, classroom design should begin by asking high-level questions about your curriculum. Before you dive into design, open your mind to possibilities. Take off your blinders and think big.

Introduction
Smith System is a manufacturer of innovative products that make educational environments more healthy, comfortable and inspiring for students and educators. The spirit of innovation is not confined to our products, rather it extends to the thinking, processes and materials we use to design, manufacture and even ship them. The feeling at our Plano, Texas manufacturing facility is, we don’t just want to make the best school furniture, we want to make it the best way.

Better function and comfort.It may be simplistic, but better furniture is made better. Ours starts with dedicated craftspeople. They have the kind of pride that was common when we started business in 1905, but is all too hard to find today. The difference is, now we have much more sophisticated tools, more consistent materials and better designs to work with. Today, even the old timers would envy our quality and efficiency.

In our 100+ years in schools, we’ve learned which materials can make school furniture and accessories that stand up to the daily use in a classroom furniture or elsewhere. High on our list are: high-pressure plastic laminate, thick chrome plating and rugged edge moldings. Our craftsmen transform these high-quality materials with proven techniques, like the MIG welds on our chair legs, our legendary outside-hold glides that stay on, baked-on powder-coat surfaces and edge moldings stapled every 10″ and in corners.

The designs that guide our craftsmen have a big influence on how the furniture will perform for the student and the contribution it makes to the educational environment. Both affect student performance and can make certain furniture inapplicable for certain curricula. That’s why we offer a wide range of styles, so you can choose the design that best fits your academic needs, and provide the best possible learning environment for the students.  For healthier living environments.

We’re working to make our classroom furniture manufacturing processes as efficient as possible because efficiency reduces waste. Specifically, we’re reducing waste that goes to landfills – this has been one of our most successful areas. In one summer, our bulk shipping initiative reduced the amount of corrugated cardboard used by 225,000 lbs. We’re also reducing energy used to produce our products – by working cleaner and smarter we’ve cut our energy consumption.  We’re reducing the environmental impact on the part of our vendors – we work closely with those in the supply chain to make sure they’re doing their part to safeguard the environment when making goods from wood product, steel, and plastic. We’re reducing waste. Recently, rather than sending 50,000 lbs. of plastic (from chair shells and edge moldings that didn’t meet our quality standards) to the landfill, we had the material recycled for use by another manufacturer. And we’re reducing packaging used by our vendors.
