Metroplan Double Column Tray Storage Unit - with 4 Extra Deep Gratnells Trays & Lockable Doors

Key Features:
• Double column
• Includes 4 extra deep trays
• 18mm MFC body with 2mm ABS edges
• Lockable castors and lockable doors

No 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.

The double column design accommodates 4 extra deep trays, perfect for larger storage needs beyond the typical uses of paper, books and stationery. 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. Double column units are cheaper per tray than single column alternatives, whilst also more adaptable to your classroom than larger alternatives; this makes them the perfect middle ground for those looking to save money as well as space.

The design incorporates lockable doors with anti-finger trap hinges and robust, nickel-plated metal handles, ensuring contents are protected from theft or unauthorised use whilst also providing a protective barrier against dust and spillages.

This unit is also mobile to aid self-installation and assist staff when cleaning or rearranging classrooms, with lockable castors to ensure safety.

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.

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. The trays are also compatible with many other furniture items to enable future upcycling.

With such a high-quality construction, we are proud to offer a 25 year guarantee on this product to stretch your budget further.
