Select This, Not That: Getting Maximum Value from Seating Upholstery

  • Date:Thursday, November 4
  • Time:9:30 AM - 10:30 AM Eastern Standard Time
  • Description: Schools have embraced the benefits that soft seating can bring to a facility. Comfort, variety of choice and making spaces more welcoming are positive benefits of upholstered items. The negatives of products that too easily fail to stand up to end user use leave facility directors questioning their initial purchasing decision. Educated, informed decisions regarding upholstery types can help extend the life of your furniture purchases. Not all vinyls are the same as some products have a health impact on the end users. We will help you to analyze the different woven and coated products to make future decisions clearer.
