Bretford Launches Its First Small-Capacity, Wall-Mountable Store and Charge Cabinet For Multiple Device Brands
Core™ 10S Combines AC Charging with Secure
Storage; Made for Up to 10 Tablets or Chromebooks; Shown for the First Time at TCEA 2014
CHICAGO — February 5, 2014 — Bretford Manufacturing, Inc.®, global manufacturer of technology-enabled furniture for schools and businesses, today launched its first small-capacity, wall-mountable store and charge cabinet for multiple device brands. The Core™ 10S, combines universal AC charging for up to 10 tablets or Chromebooks (up to an 11-inch screen size) with secure storage. The new cabinet will be on display in the Bretford booth (#2365) during TCEA 2014, February 5-7 in Austin, Texas. It is available for order now and will begin shipping in March 2014.
Designed for education, enterprise, retail, healthcare and government environments, the Core 10S was created for those requiring a smaller capacity store and charge cabinet and a stationary option that is wall-mountable so as to not take up valuable floor space.
“Many 21st century learning environments have not standardized on a specific mobile device brand and end up having multiple types of products used in the same classroom or office — all of which need to be charged and secured simultaneously,” explained Robert Gabriel, product manager for Bretford Manufacturing, Inc. “The Core 10S uses AC charging so it can accommodate essentially any device brand all in one charging cabinet. It is also ideal for those who have smaller quantities of devices and don’t require high capacity charging and storage such as doctors and nurses in a healthcare office or those in other professional facilities.”
The Core 10S provides AC outlet spacing to accommodate a wide range of power adapters along with an enclosed AC compartment and cable management slots to store all the various cords and accessories. It also features polypropylene pockets, which cradle each device and protect it from scratches.
The new cabinet is constructed from secure steel and has a combination padlock to deter theft and vandalism. It can be mounted to either a work surface or wall (wall mounting plate included) depending on the room size and space available.
