Why The Furniture in Your School Will Never Be the Same
To be future ready on your campus, it’s clear that spaces – including furnishings – need holistic approaches to design, selection, cleaning, maintenance, and sustainability to address the needs of students and staff. Answers for furniture are found in understanding the importance of ANSI/BIFMA Standards that ensure safety, performance, sustainability, and wellness for all users. BIFMA’s newest standard, Furniture Surfaces: Design and Durability for Cleaning, Sanitizing, and Disinfecting, provides timely guidance for post-pandemic protocols. This panel of experts from BIFMA and the furniture industry will discuss practical application of BIFMA standards and what you need to know.
