Open Back Shelf by Community Playthings
Our Community Playthings Shelving Units are designed to hold more. The robust construction, pure maple materials, the clear, tough, non-toxic finish and safety-rounded corners ensure an extraordinarily long and safe lifetime in your classroom. Each unit has a kick plate on both sides that can be "kicked down" for stability or "kicked up" to engage the mobile castors. The backing on non-translucent units is a flannel board, to which you can attach mirrored, chalkboard or clear backings. Mobility is built in. Flip up the hidden wheels and roll into place. Flip the wheels back down for a stationary unit.
Measures 3" W x 32" H and 14-1/2" (37cm) deep
