Key Advice and Guidance for Products
Guy-Raymond can help you select components that meet the requirements of the educational furniture sector. Your dedicated account coordinator will take the time to understand your project, considering questions such as:
What is the application for the castor or component?
Our experienced team can advise you on which products will best suit your education furniture unit. The 75mm castor is ideal for mobile units and charging stations, as it provides ease of mobility and is available with a total lock brake for extra stability. For classroom use, antimicrobial castors can help prevent the spread of infection, potentially leading to a reduction in school absence rates too.
What load capacity is required and how frequently will the unit be moved?
We understand that storage units can become heavy when filled with books or other items, and our range includes adjustable feet and castors that can withstand these high loads. Castors with ball bearings make it easier and more ergonomic to move trolleys and mobile units under load.
Are your products colourful?
Subject to minimum quantities, we can offer colours that will match your unit and help create a bright and stimulating environment.
