Best of Britain

21 October 2010

The famous BRIT School in Croydon is the latest education establishment which has turned to Railex Projects for a mobile storage system – rapidly becoming the design of choice for the teaching sector – and reflecting the Railex pedigree as the longest established British manufacturer in its field.

In this particular instance, it is the Science department who now benefit from this unique concept – from the Railex Rollastore range – and featuring single and double storage units which glide along a track set in to a floor plinth, and simply open out or close and lock together as desired. The beauty of what appears to be a heavy duty and permanent fixture is that in fact the floor and track system is relocatable and not fixed to the floor, It incorporates a total of 10 bays each containing a facility for 7 storage levels. Finished in a tasteful Oyster White, the Rollastore specification includes keyed unit locks as well as aisle safety locks, anti –tilt safety throughout and solid backs to all bays. The overall system occupies a length of just 5.3 metres by 0.9 of a metre deep.

Within this system are housed all of the varied items which constitute a busy science environment – including microscopes, balances, testing equipment and spare motors.

All of which creates a self-contained, organised faculty within the school – named to reflect the British Record Industry Trust (BRIT) which underwrites Britain’s only free performing arts and technology school. This is an exciting combination of National Curriculum and specialist arts strands – including dance, music, theatre and design - creating bright and talented award-winning youngsters with an enviable record of education and flair.

Head of Science John Laidlaw is very pleased with the new Railex installation “ we previously had a mixture of racks and cabinets which made it difficult to see and locate items. The new system makes items much more accessible, whilst at the same time keeping them secure and in good condition. The mobile wheels are easy and light to use, and just needing one key to lock or undo the entire unit is very convenient. And the overall clean and modern appearance complements our environment”.
