Shape-up school dining rooms

Moffat’s innovative Cube Clearing Trolleys clear up after school meal times

Moffat's Cube Clearing TrolleySchool meal times are not only important for fuelling children’s bodies, they are a valuable learning experience – teaching children about social responsibilities and encouraging them to take an active role in helping to clear away after their meal. This is of particular importance when the dining room is also the school hall and used for lessons, meetings or assemblies after lunch.

That’s why Moffat has launched a ‘quick clear’ Cube Clearing Trolley, part of the popular Versiclear range. This eye-catching mobile clear-away trolley is designed to double the useable area for school children to dispose of food waste and deposit trays and crockery and reduce clearing time. It conveniently folds into itself when not in use, so is compact and easy to store.

“The water in the icemaker will have passed through a filter system that will help to prevent any bacteria present from getting into the machine,” says Mark Stebbings, technical and aftercare manager at Hubbard Systems. “The bacteria that was found is most probably the result of poor personal hygiene standards, presumably on the part of a member of staff.”
