Bespoke design of Crables can be as simple as a multi-coloured logo or can include a call to action or QR code to direct people to a website or app that promotes the business or internal communications.
THE BUSINESS DURHAM SOLUTION
Crable charging shelves were installed throughout communal areas, meeting rooms and private offices in Business Durham’s Tanfield Lea business centre.
Branding of their Crables was in the form of their punchy logo which was pad printed onto the front face of the shelf. Wireless charging icons were also pad printed on the top of the shelf, applying the brand’s green from the Business Durham logo.
As recommended by Crable, the charging shelves were installed at a height of 1.1m from the ground. This ensured the charging stations could be used by all and were able to perform as floating shelves as intended.
The installation of the Crable charging shelves was carried out by Business Durham’s in-house maintenance department following training by Crable’s expert team. Crable offers survey and installation services too, and have introduced full maintenance packages as well as extended warranty policies.
