Telos Solid Plastic School Furniture by Virco

For decades, schools across America chose earlier generations of classroom furniture with hard plastic seats, backrests and work surfaces because of their remarkably colorfast, stain-resistant and chip-resistant qualities. Unfortunately, the durability benefits of hard plastic chairs were offset by widespread seating comfort issues and universally poor stacking.

Until now.

Conceived by award-winning designers Peter Glass and Bob Mills, Telos continues the Virco tradition of product durability while incorporating important ergonomic benefits to set a new standard of comfort and support for mid-priced hard plastic seating. All Telos models are certified according to the stringent GREENGUARD(r) for Children and Schools Program for indoor air quality.

The seats, backs and work surfaces in Telos products are made from Virco’s proprietary Fortified Recycled Wood(tm) hard plastic. Furniture made with Fortified Recycled Wood is highly sustainable due to its long service life. And when ultimately withdrawn from service, Fortified Recycled Wood components are fully recyclable through Virco’s pioneering Take-Back Program that helps schools recycle out-of-service furniture. Even more significantly, Virco can process Take-Back items and other post-consumer materials in its own factory for the Fortified Recycled Wood used in Telos products. By extending the useful life of out-of-service furniture materials that would otherwise go to a landfill, Fortified Recycled Wood and Take-Back make a unique contribution to "closing the recycling loop" in the classroom furniture industry.

Telos is the first hard plastic furniture collection to include 4-leg chairs that form a 10-high truly vertical stack. Moreover, model N318 4-leg chairs can be stacked 10-high and moved on Virco’s model HCT789 and HCT4 chair trucks. The Telos product line includes: 4-leg chairs with four seat heights; a selection of 4-leg combo units with two work surface sizes, an optional bookrack and an optional backpack hanger; two adjustable task chairs, one of which has a reduced shell size and a shorter adjustment range for smaller users; and an adjustable lab stool.
