If you are involved with specifying or using AV in the classroom, you will already be aware of the vast market in education specific products, resources and services.

We are expert in this field and also have a good reputation for challenging the status quo enjoyed by some of the bigger suppliers in this area of the market. We were the first in the country to offer a fully kitted and installed secure classroom solution for under £1000.

By constantly reviewing our products and solutions, we can offer the latest equipment with the best warranties and competitive prices.

We also do all our own installation work and do not sub-contract.
A high-end bespoke education solution to enable the school and teachers to maximise the space in their rooms.

Using a 75” 4K Promethean touchscreen, 3m edgeless magnetic ‘Whitewall’ and a notice board the teachers have more room than ever to work and write.

The specialist whiteboards can be joined almost seamlessly to create one long ‘Whitewall’ of any desired length.

Visible cabling is completely removed by using dado trunking and connecting directly the teacher’s apple mac desktop machine removing the need to connection plates and user cables which get damaged.

This is an excellent uncluttered approach which has been adopted as standard for the school going forward.
Listed Building School Classroom Projector Installation
The Claremont Estate was established in the early 1700’s and is now home to a thriving independent school.  At the centre of the estate is the imposing mansion building – home to Clive of India until 1774, and Queen Victoria for a large part of her life through the latter half of the 19th century.

The Mansion has housed numerous classrooms since 1978.  We have been fortunate to be involved in the gradual renovation of these classrooms over the last 12 years.  The current management team are focussed on stripping back decades of cabling, trunking, ceiling projectors and whiteboards to create a minimalist aesthetic, and respectful of the building’s heritage.

The rooms still need to function as active teaching classrooms and therefore provide a robust infrastructure to endure day to day wear and tear, but the cabling for power, data and AV are all hidden where possible.

We provide a design service prior to work beginning and ensure all services are first-fixed and concealed prior to refurbishment and decoration. Our second fix builds upon this to deliver the latest in projection, 4K TV panels and whitewall panelling to provide  a clean and effective teaching environment.

The main image is that of the “Vanbrugh” classroom, named for the original owner and developer of the estate and the next images show part of the installation process.

BenQ Ultra Short Throw (UST) Projector to semi-matt projection whiteboard.

With the room being completely stripped-back and re-decorated to reveal original features, it was never going to be easy to install modern interactive classroom technology.

The solution shown includes a 78” Smartboard, BenQ Ultra Short Projector, ConnexEasy Soundbar – creating a compact system with minimal cabling. The dado trunking approach was chosen as it allows for AV connectivity, power and data services to be contained in one neat space.
