When it comes to hard-working no-nonsense classroom furniture, our Buddy Student Desks have been front and foremost for years.

The two most popular models – The Buddy Fixed Top and The Buddy Sliding Tray desk – both offer a choice of three top sizes – 480×600, 600×600 and 750x600mm – and 3 standard heights of 625mm, 675 and 725mm. Plus, if you want to zing things up a bit colour-wise, you also have the option of over 20 shades of Melteca to choose from!

Buddy desks offer pupils easy leg access, and have an impressively solid, heavy-duty, fully welded frame. The tops are a substantial 18mm thick and are fixed to the frame with steel nut inserts rather than screws, which gives them extra rigidity. The tray on the Sliding Tray unit is ample too – holding 2 x A4 side by side.

Helpfully, you can check out what height chair goes best with these desks by using our handy chair and desk height guide.

As the move away from Modern Learning Environments back to the more traditional classroom format starts to take hold in New Zealand, these already popular desks are gaining new fans all the time. Their other benefit is that they work just as hard alongside a lot of the more modern furniture, offering schools the best of both worlds.
