Coloured Edge Double Column Tray Storage Unit, Beech/Assorted Edge Colours - with 12 Shallow Gratnells Trays

Tray units are the ultimate solution for classroom storage and organisation. Thanks to their simple operation, durability and comforting familiarity, it is no surprise that they have become a timeless staple in classrooms across the country.

Design
The design consists of two columns and 12 shallow trays. The double column design ensures a suitable height for primary school aged children to reach the top trays without difficulty, whereas the shallow trays provide a suitable amount of storage space for this age group.

Although teachers can use these units to organise work per subject, trays can also be assigned per pupil for a full class when multiple units are used. Using multiple units together allows you to create a custom layout that suits the shape of your classroom, optimising space better than a single, less adaptable unit of the same capacity. Double column units are however cheaper per tray than single column alternatives, providing the perfect middle ground for those looking to save money as well as space.

The classic beech style finish can be enriched with either Apple Green, Cool Blue or Red coloured edges and trays to colour-code the contents of your unit or simply match the colours of your classroom or school. The benefits of an attractive classroom aesthetic should not be underestimated either – to younger children, bright colours can be friendly and comforting, resulting in a more positive learning experience.

The unit itself is mobile, and supplied with castors to allow movement between classrooms or for easily storing out of the way when not in use.

Construction
The unit is constructed using 18mm thick melamine faced chipboard (MFC), a common material in classrooms due to its strength and durability under frequent handling. This is supplemented with a protective laminated finish and PVC edging to create a smooth edge and prevent chipping. PVC is BPA free unlike the more common ABS alternative - which although more resistant to impact is considerably more expensive than PVC. In addition to this initial cost saving, the 25 year guarantee assures great value for your school in the long term, helping its tight budget go further. The MFC used in this product is FSC certified.

The supplied Gratnells trays are made from super-strong polypropylene to ensure a lifetime of use for an affordable price. Gratnells are one of the top education storage specialists in the UK, and used extensively in a majority of schools.
