Key Features:• Double column unit without runners• Includes 4 jumbo trays• 18mm MFC body with 2mm ABS edges• Lockable castors• Choice of carcass, edging and tray coloursNo classroom is complete without this storage essential. Each Metroplan tray unit has been carefully constructed to meet the demands of its environment, whilst offering a contemporary design to match every colour scheme. As a premium option, only the highest quality materials are sourced from trusted, long-time suppliers, with additional care taken during the manufacturing process to ensure every bespoke unit is up to scratch. As a staple sure to be in heavy use for many years, rest assured that Metroplan tray units are a sensible choice to avoid disappointment and save money for your school.Design The double column design consists of 4 individual bays that perfectly accommodate one jumbo tray each. The ‘bay’ design results in greater safety and stability than a traditional drawer-style mechanism with runners, allowing large quantities of heavy items to be stored and easily removed en masse. This design also makes the unit more adaptable, as smaller trays or boxes will also fit within the bays if required, and each bay can be used as a shelf compartment when there are no trays inside – as needs change over time, your furniture doesn’t have to.There are 4 jumbo trays provided for the storage of larger items such as science apparatus, art supplies, D&T materials, tools, digital devices, cables and more. Without runners, trays are easily removed from the unit for quick dissemination of these resources to a full class.The unit is mobile to aid self-installation and assist staff when cleaning or rearranging classrooms. The castors are also lockable to ensure safety both when in storage and in use.Metroplan tray units can be fully customised with the option to mix and match trays (on request). You can choose any combination of colours you like, whether as a visual aid, to match a colour scheme, or simply make a classroom more exciting. Edges are colour matched with the units for a guaranteed contemporary design.Construction This unit is constructed using 18mm thick melamine faced chipboard (MFC); a classroom favourite that assures high-level strength and durability with frequent, heavy use. To complement this is the use of 2mm ABS edges; smooth to the touch, and as attractive as they are protective to both the user and the unit itself. In fact, ABS edges completely eliminate the risk of splinters and scratches to the skin, and protect the MFC against chipping for a full and satisfying lifespan.The trays provided are manufactured by Gratnells, one of the top education storage specialists in the UK, and the go-to tray provider for the majority of schools. Their popularity can be attributed to the super-strong polypropylene construction that ensures a lifetime of use at an affordable price.
