3 Best Classroom Tray Storage Solutions for the New School Year

13 JAN 2020

The start of a new year is always a busy time; the last thing anyone wants at the beginning of a new term is added stress, but unpreparedness and lack of organisation can easily put you on the back foot before you've even begun. 

Make sure you're ready to tackle everything the new year might throw at you by investing in high quality, functional classroom tray storage. 

We manufacture a wide variety of classroom tray storage. Each unit is designed with a different purpose and learning environment in mind, but that doesn't mean there isn't a universal, easy win solution fit for your class.

Here are three of our bestselling classroom tray storage units:

Shallow Tray Classroom Unit - £83.00 ex VAT

The shallow tray classroom unit is our most affordable school tray storage solution. We know that shrinking budgets are a big issue facing the education sector, so making sure we provide an accessible and low-cost option is a must for us. 

This tray unit is made from a durable 18mm MFC beech frame with a protective PVC edge. You can choose from either six, eight, 12, 16, 18, 21, 24 or 30 shallow Gratnells trays depending on the size of your class and your storage needs.

Given the size of the units and the trays, we would recommend this as an ideal solution to storing student exercise books.

We offer the trays in 17 bright colours to help you inject some colour and personality into your new classroom. If you want multi-coloured trays, simply get in touch to let us know what colour combination you would like.

This storage unit is mounted onto lockable castor wheels - giving you the option of using the trolley either static or mobile.

Each shallow tray classroom unit is delivered fully assembled and ready to use and comes with a five-year manufacturer warranty.

These storage units are made to order in the UK and are manufactured for dispatch whin 10-15 working days.

Mobile Metal Classroom Storage Unit - £111.00 ex VAT


If you're looking for something to keep your classroom stationery safe and organised, look no further than the mobile metal classroom storage unit. 

You can choose either six, 12, 18 or 24 shallow Gratnells trays in a choice of 17 vibrant shades to complement your fully welded steel storage trolley.

In addition, the frame itself comes in seven bright colours with a grey top as standard.

The locking castor wheels on this storage unit come with two brakes; enabling you to use this trolley mobile or static. 

Each unit is delivered fully assembled to allow you to start using your new trolley straight away. 

Each mobile metal classroom storage unit is made to order within the UK and is manufactured and dispatched within 10-15 working days. 

In addition, each unit is backed with a five-year warranty. 

Kinderbox with Trays - £142.00 ex VAT

We know that space within classrooms is at a premium, so we've developed our kinderbox with trays to provide you with two lots of storage in one unit. 

The top half of the unit is made up of either four or six bays which are big enough to store reading and library books. Alternatively, they can be used to store larger teaching aids like paints or maths cubes. 

The bottom half of the 18mm MCF beech unit is comprised of trays. The number of trays you get depends on how many book bays you select. Four book bays gets you eight shallow or four deep trays, and six bays gets you 12 shallow or six deep trays.

As with the vast majority of our classroom tray storage, the kinderbox with trays comes with premium Gratnells trays in a choice of 16 colours.

The entire unit is mounted onto lockable castor wheels and comes fully assembled upon delivery. 

Made to order in the UK and with a 10-15 time manufacture-to-dispatch time, this classroom tray storage unit is backed by a five-year warranty.
