Gratnells, best known for 40 years of designing, manufacturing and marketing advanced storage systems, has developed a smart, responsive approach to meet the increasing demand for digital technology in schools and colleges. The company has used its in-depth knowledge of the education sector to react to this rapidly-growing trend, delivering storage systems that are compact, lightweight and versatile while providing security and additional functionality.

Gratnells PowerTray/PowerTrolley delivers all the benefits of digital resources while retaining proper accountability for equipment, along with ‘regulated’ access and guaranteed readiness of the devices. The PowerTrays come in two sizes - a deep (F2) and an extra-deep (F25) version, and can each store 10 tablets. The PowerTrolley can adapt to house either three tiers of deep trays, charging 30 devices at any one time or two tiers of extra-deep trays, charging 20 units. The deeper trays also feature a lid to protect the contents and can be used as a stand-alone unit, transportable between classes.


The trays continuously analyse the appetite for power from USB electronic devices such as phones, tablets and data loggers, responding with an optimised rate of charge and syncing between them to produce a complete storage, charging and syncing solution. The average charge time from 0% to 100% is between two and four hours. In addition, the PowerTray has an integral fan and air vents to keep gadgets cool.


The PowerTrolley is specially designed to securely store and charge devices using the new PowerTrays and has useful built-in features such as lockable castors and optional handles. To maintain security, complete units are lockable and, of course, mobile for easy deployment to storerooms or cupboards.


PowerTrays are available in white and come in two alternative heights, while PowerTrolleys offer five contemporary colours to complement or contrast with décor and furniture. Both are future-proofed, universal and firmware-updatable to be compatible with changes in technology.


Gratnells has responded to the universal adoption of technology in the education and office environment with storage systems that are compact, lightweight and versatile while providing security and additional functionality. PowerTray deep and extra deep models are available in both Charge and Charge and Sync.
