This new concept brings a whole new meaning to personal storage and introduces a hot-lockering aspect with its locker management software.

An unusual use has been made of Eborcraft’s Fusion reception counters by Bexhill 6th Form College. Under a contract awarded by a design-and-build company, Eborcraft adapted its standard Fusion modules to form a 5.8x3m servery counter, which incorporated under-counter storage to house sinks, fridge and server units. The Bexhill 6th Form College logo was featured on the front-facing frosted glass panel, which was backlit with white LED lights. The specified finish was walnut, and although Eborcraft normally supplies its Fusion counters with a wood veneer, the servery counter required a high-pressure laminate finish for durability.

The tray is available in two sizes with multiple colours of elastic.

The table requires minimal self-assembly, with the legs flat-packed inside the unit for a compact package that is easy to transport and store.
