Open front desks are a Worthington Direct specialty and there are many student desks
available for schools, universities and other educational settings. This group of open front school desks particularly features individual student work desks or modular student desks. Students can work privately at their own study desk when used in traditional classroom rows, or they can be easily clustered together to create collaborative work desks and group study desks. The open front desk has a front loading book compartment that can be constructed of metal or plastic and some have a colorful book box to match school colors or designate various themes. Though metal open front desks are generally a better long term investment, plastic open front desks are made from extremely durable plastic and are often preferred by teachers because they are more quiet than metal open front desks when books are being placed in the open front desk book box. For safety, look for clear view open front desk
that have wire bookracks to allow the teacher to observe the contents of a student’s desk. Laminate top open front desks have a smooth wood grain finish and are a great economical choice. For a greater long-term investment, consider purchasing a solid plastic open front desk
which also have a smooth surface desktop and are available in several colors. Most student open front desks have adjustable height legs, which permit student use from grade school all the way to university level. Worthington Direct carries school classroom desks from top brands including Virco, Smith System, Scholar Craft, and KI.
