    After bringing unprecedented ergonomic comfort, style and overall value to student furniture with a stream of new products – including Sage™, Metaphor®, Text™, Telos®, and the best-selling ZUMA® line – Virco is ready to revolutionize the generic, uninspired desks used by thousands of teachers, and in thousands of school offices.

    In collaboration with award-winning designers Peter Glass and Bob Mills, Virco introduces Parameter™, an invigorating collection of desks, returns and credenzas. Parameter affordably combines all the functionality – and more – of traditional mid-priced desks with high-end design elements. Teachers, principals, and district administrators will be proud to have great-looking, well-equipped Parameter workstations in their classrooms or offices.

    Distinctive, stylish and modern, Parameter’s tech-savvy models include a handsome and robust modesty panel that’s firmly anchored to the top and both legs. A highly functional internal wire management chute accepts cables that are fed through grommets; cables can then pass into a wire management trough in the modesty panel. Thanks to this synergistic design, computer cables won’t dangle over the back edge – or in the leg space beneath the work surface – of Parameter desks.

    To compliment its excellent functional capabilities, Parameter’s appearance is bold, refined and purposeful. With its dramatic proportions and floating tops, Parameter has the look and feel of premium furniture offered by exclusive contract market companies – but at a fraction of their price.

    Virco Parameter Teachers' Desks

    In 2010, Virco introduced Parameter, an invigorating collection of desks, returns and credenzas for use by teachers, principals and district administrators in their classrooms or offices. Parameter affordably combines all the functionality — and more — of traditional mid-priced desks with high-end design elements. Virco’s flat metal forming capabilities are used to manufacture Parameter items. Several new products were released in the second half of 2010, including: Parameter and TEXT help desks for educators, which have a rounded work surface edge at one end where students can comfortably pull up a chair for assistance with their work; Parameter mobile pedestals; Parameter high-capacity wire management panels; Plateau adjustable-height tables; several 2000 Series “EL” (extra large) classroom furniture models with an expanded seating surface; and a new collection of Virco vertical files.

    Exciting new Parameter® desks combine exceptional functionality with high-end styling at an affordable price. The technology-ready model shown here features two desktop grommets, two internal wire management chutes and a perforated steel modesty panel with a wire management trough. Locking casters enable teachers to readily move this Parameter desk to different parts of the classroom as needed. Other teacher desk alternatives

    include the elegant Plateau® ellipse model pictured below with a perforated steel modesty panel and two desktop grommets. For desks with post-formed work surfaces and an integral grommet, you can chose from double-pedestal Virco model 533060, which features a 30” x 60” top flanked by a pair of locking box and file drawers that glide on full-extension steel ball-bearing slides, or Virco model 533048RP with a 30” x 48” post-formed top and a locking right-side box/file pedestal.

    These two desks have adjustable nylon-base glides for leveling on uneven floors; an optional center drawer is available for both models.

    Traditional double-pedestal Virco model 546 desks give you a 30” x 60” top and fivelocking drawers (1 center, 2 file, 2 box).

    If you prefer a more compact unit, our single-pedestal Virco model 543 teachers’ desk has a 30” x 48” top complemented by a locking center, file, and box drawer.
