A new year means another two Academies Shows to look forward to. Each show is an unparalleled opportunity for us to catch up with our customers and keep abreast of the latest developments in the education sector. This year’s first show, held at ExCeL London, was focused on the big issues, with keynotes from Nicky Morgan, Education Secretary and Minister for Women and Equalities, and Tom Clark, Chairman of the Board at FASNA.

We took along our full range of high-quality school lockers, including our celebrated eXtreme Plastic Lockers and Atlas Steel Lockers. The feedback we’ve received at shows, and from our long-term customers, has helped us continually develop and improve these products. Today, a comparison of top brand school lockers reveals that our lockers are not only the most affordable option but also include a number of innovative features that simply aren’t available elsewhere.

Atlas Steel Lockers provide comprehensive security, with a full-height reinforcement bar, corner stiffeners and internal four way frame. But our units are also designed to make day-to-day management easier, with unique features like one-touch door replacement and replaceable lock barrels. EXtreme Plastic Lockers take our innovations outside, helping you save valuable indoor space. Drain holes and rust-free plastic mean these units can be hosed down to keep storage areas hygienic, while a recyclable material sends students the right environmental message from the start.

All in all, we had a thoroughly enjoyable and educational Academies Show and would like to thank all that came to see us on stand 830. Once again, we’ve learnt a great deal more about the issues our products were designed to solve, whether the security of valuable new technologies or the age-old problem of budget constraints. Most importantly, we believe that hearing the opinions of those closest to our end users, your students, will help us deliver a superior service long into the future.
