Education Buying Guide

To help you purchase the most accurate height furniture for the individual child in compiance with the standards, we recommend that you measure the stature and popliteal height of the child. You can then match those measurements using the guide below.

Popliteal Height - this defines the correct seat height. The measurement is taken from the floor to the back of the knee when seated, with thighs horizontal and lower leg vertical with feet flat to the floor.

Stature - is from the floor to the top of the head.

Sitting Work Height - sitting work height defines the correct table height. The measurement is determined by sitting elbow height, which is the distance from the floor to the underside of the elbow whilst sitting with the upper arm vertical and the lower arm horizontal.

Standing Work Height - this defines the correct standing table height. The measurement is determined by standing elbow height, which is the distance from the floor to the underside of the elbow of a standing person with the upper arm vertical and lower arm horizontal.
