CHARGING SOLUTIONS FOR SCHOOLS
Keep devices charged and never lose out on learning time with Bretford charging solutions and AV carts.
Leaders in Charging Solutions for Schools
In the late 90’s we created the first mobile device charging cart. We listened to our customers and heard power management and cord management was needed, so we changed our design to include these unique features. We listened to customers when they advised we should adhere to a nationally recognized safety standard. So, we worked with UL to ensure all our products were listed to 60950-1 standard – another first in the industry. Bretford has a long history of forward thinking by listening intently to our customers and investing in research & development that ensures we design and build best- in- class products offerings.

With the CUBE Tower™ Pre-Wired, we can actively charge student devices with USB-C power adapters permanently attached, eliminating the need for students to bring chargers to school. We deployed one unit into each classroom in the district where they are being used between an island of desks and rolled out to student’s desks as needed."
