Open Front Student Desks and Open Front Classroom Desks

Open front desks are a Worthington Direct specialty and there are many student desks available for schools, universities and other educational classrooms. This group of open front school desks particularly features individual student work desks or modular student desks, generally rectangular in shape. 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, consider Virco clear view open front desk that have wire bookracks to allow the teacher to observe the contents of a students 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 Virco solid plastic open front desk which also has a smooth, durable desktop surface and is 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, Marco, Scholar Craft and Mooreco.
