What is the BSEN 1729? The British & European Educational Standard BSEN1729 was introduced in December 2006 to ensure that all school furniture is the right shape to provide posture support and strong enough to withstand daily classroom use.
Why is there a new standard? The results of a survey of over 1500 children revealed that the average size of children had increased. As a result it was found that furniture sizes also needed to increase.
Is the standard compulsory? In the UK the standard is currently at an advisory only status.
Do I have to throw my old furniture away? No. But the new standard should be a consideration when purchasing new chairs and tables.
