For education data and infrastructure solutions across grades chools, trade schools, and higher educational institutions, Great Lakes Case & Cabinet is quick becoming a manufacturer of choice. With their high quality, robust data center storage and classroom equipment, Great Lakes is able to meet application standards with racks, wall mounts, free-standing enclosures, and even technical furniture systems or other custom designed products.
Great Lakes offers some of the most sophisticated manufacturing capabilities in North America, allowing their customers to create custom products for unique educational requirements in addition to their standard products. Due to the specialized time constraints that are usual for educational environments, many educational providers will be pleased to hear that Great Lakes custom products can be engineered and manufactured within a standard lead time of six weeks, or within ten working days when using their "Fast Track" Design and Production Service.
When student data and records require protection, Great Lakes standard products have specially been designed to be compliant with the requirements of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). In some instances, educational institutions must also comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). Our data enclosures, wall mounts, Mobile Work Station, and DVR lock boxes offer ways for information to be secured in a variety of locations, from data rooms, to class rooms and the principal's office!
A Midwestern university requested seventeen technical podiums created around the Great Lakes' 300E Series enclosure. Installed in a number of classrooms, each podium was different; some were integrated into a lab table, some were built into a platform as a central lectern within the classroom and others were designed on casters to be mobile. Each included a podium top; a slide-out work surface and a drop-down control panel door. Rack mount equipment could still be installed within the enclosure. A customized hole was cut into each unit to accommodate a cable bundle containing all the various wires and cables for the multi-media systems unique to each classroom.
The Mobile Work Station (MWS) serves as a professional mobile lectern which can be easily moved from classroom to classroom as needed. The flat screen monitor arm can be made to face the presenter or the audience, offering easy support as a reference for projected presentations to a large group, used as a platform for the mounting of lecture/capture equipment or as a means to share presentations or demonstrations to a smaller audience. The locking storage compartment has space for a CPU, laptop, or other materials that must be safely stored.
