This tray unit accommodates 16 deep trays to help organise and mobilise resources in a wide variety of environments. Supplied empty, it is ideal for replacing a damaged unit, or upgrading for more space without having to replace perfectly good trays that have plenty of life left in them. For a school on a budget in particular, a unit without trays is a blessing.
Design The design consists of 16 individual bays that hold one tray each. This results in greater safety and stability than traditional brackets and runners, so large quantities of heavy items can be stored. It also makes the unit more adaptable, as each bay can be used like a shelf compartment when there are no trays inside – as needs change over time, the functionality as a storage solution will always remain.
This unit is supplied in grey, a popular, neutral tone that will match existing grey furniture - and even the brightest tray colours - without the risk of clashing. What separates it from other deep tray units is the eye-catching dark grey edging, an accompaniment that adds an impressive air of sophistication without a high price tag. This colour combination creates a warm look that is comforting in all environments, from school to the home. For the same product in beech, see D26200.
Both Gratnells and Certwoodtrays will comfortably fit this unit (‘deep’ and ‘double’ sized, respectively), allowing you to mix and match and re-use existing trays as required. As an overall storage solution, tray units are multi-purpose beyond the typical uses of paper, books and stationery, proving to be equally useful for bulky items that are a struggle to store elsewhere. This includes STEM resources such as science apparatus, art supplies, D&T materials, tools, digital devices, cables and DVDs – for many of which organisation is a necessity for safety – making tray units an essential in any classroom.
The unit has been designed short to allow primary school aged children to reach the top without difficulty, empowering them with the responsibility of finding what they need and tidying up when they are done. It is also mobile 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 to create a smooth edge and prevent chipping. 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.
