This year’s Education Show provided a great showcase for the latest cutting edge products available for enhancing school facilities. Storage specialist Action Storage’s stand was particularly busy, with large numbers showing an interest in its innovative product range. Action Storage also used the Education Show as a platform to launch its ‘operating lease’ initiative for purchasing its eXtreme plastic® school locker range.
The eXtreme locker® is made from hardwearing and waterproof polypropylene plastic and offers many unique advantages over conventional school lockers. It can be stacked outdoors without fear of it rusting, which makes it ideal for stacking next to cycle shelters for storing bike helmets, lights and waterproof clothing. Moving school lockers outdoors also offers valuable space savings in school corridors and classrooms.
Being waterproof also makes eXtreme lockers® a more hygienic option than metal school lockers. They can be sprayed clean with a high pressure hose and simply left to dry thanks to drainage holes in the base. Sloping roofs can also be attached to prevent the accumulation of crisp packets, paper balls and other debris that accumulates over the school day.
With theft a common problem in schools, eXtreme lockers® are exceptionally durable. Its hinges are able to withstand up to 3200N without breaking and it’s tough enough to resist break in attempts by a claw hammer.
To help schools take advantage of the eXtreme plastic locker® range Action Storage is offering them for purchase on an ‘operating lease’ scheme. Schools can buy them outright or hire them on an ongoing basis. The lease initiative is expected to be popular with schools wanting to provide the best possible storage facilities on a shrinking budget.
Another innovative product range Action Storage showcased at the Education Show was its Charging Laptop Trolley which recharges laptops whilst they’re stored thanks to electrical units in the rear of the trolleys. 3 models available in the range to accommodate up to 16 laptops.
Action Storage’s Atlas™ Economy school locker range also generated a lot of interest at the Education Show. Available in 2, 3, 4 or 6 door options, Atlas Economy lockers are exceptionally cost effective and readily available from stock.
