A tray/shelf combination unit is an extremely practical storage solution, allowing items to be stored in the way that is most convenient for retrieval, privacy, or organisation. Designed for use by teachers and students alike, it can be used to store stationery, worksheets, books and other resources that don’t fit anywhere else in the classroom. The height of this unit allows primary school aged children to reach each compartment without difficulty.
Design The economical 2-in-1 design is comprised of a single column of 5 trays, and a shelving column with three shelving compartments (two adjustable shelves and a base panel). Combining these popular classroom essentials in one unit helps to not only save money, but to keep related items together to reduce confusion when rearranging furniture.
The shelves can be adjusted to multiple heights within the unit, allowing you to optimise space based on your requirements. You can choose to use both shelves, one shelf or no shelves at all if you need to store larger items in this section, removing the limitations that other shelving units often cause. Shelves of course are most commonly used for books, but toys, games, stencils and pen pots will fit in nicely here.
The trays can be used to store objects that can easily become lost or damaged – most commonly stationery, paper and worksheets - but are also useful for teachers to keep things private such as test answers. The small number of trays makes them suitable for theming contents by subject or day of the week without having extra trays left over.
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 2mm thick ABS edging tape to create a smooth edge and prevent chipping. 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. The durable construction of this product allows us to proudly offer a 25 year guarantee on all units in this range, so your school can use its tight budget wisely. The MFC used in this product is FSC certified.
