Achieve unmatched organisation for staff and pupils alike with this adaptable, multi-use storage solution. By combining shallow trays and open shelf compartments, items can be stored in the way that is most convenient for retrieval, privacy, or categorisation - using just a single piece of furniture. Use this open tray/upper compartment storage unit in classrooms or staffrooms for mail, stationery, worksheets, books, and other learning resources.DesignThe economical 2-in-1 design is comprised of 27 trays across three columns, beneath 4 shelf compartments created by two adjustable shelves. Combining these popular classroom furnishings in one unit helps to not only save money, but to keep related items together to reduce confusion when rearranging furniture. The unit itself is static for permanent status and safe usage in any environment.Open shelf compartments are ideal for keeping books, games or stationery visible and easy to find at all times. The top compartment is separated down the middle into two halves, whereas the two adjustable shelves can be arranged to optimise space and add/remove compartments based on your requirements. A maximum of 4 compartments can be created using the shelves. You can add or remove shelves, adjust their heights, and put them on either side to create the required storage space. This feature is also useful for creating a shelf that children can’t reach.Although the shelves can be adjusted out of reach, the trays are all a suitable height for primary school aged children. This is ideal for those planning to allocate a tray to each child, and is made possible by the class-sized quantity of trays. However, the trays can also be used by teachers for objects that can easily become lost or damaged, such as stationery, paper and worksheets. In a staffroom, the trays can also serve as a pigeonhole unit with the additional benefits of privacy and tray removal.ConstructionThe 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.
