Spectrum Industries Launches Long Awaited New Website


Spectrum Industries is proud to announce that we have launched a new website. The site (http://www.spectrumfurniture.com/) was launched this past week and it features more multi-media content, expanded product and company information, interactive participation on News and Events and an incredibly fast and easy to use Interactive Catalog.


The development of the site took several months and will continue as we move into more advanced phases. The web development team at Digital Dialogue (http://www.digi-dial.com/) was instrumental in taking the ideas, concepts and content and turning it into an attractive and valuable website. To them we say thank you!


Take a few minutes and visit the new site. We would like your feedback and suggestions as we plan on continuing this initiative for some time.


Thank you,

Spectrum Industries' New mLT30 Stores & Charges Netbooks (mini-laptops)


With the emergence of mini-laptop technology in modern educational environments, Spectrum Industries has created the perfect solution to securely store, transport, and recharge netbooks (mini-laptops).

The mLT30 Mini-Laptop Cart is designed to be a true reflection of the netbook itself: The capabilities you need at a price you can afford. A built-in handle and 5” casters make the mLT30 extremely mobile for ease of transport. Ample clearance is provided for easy removal/insertion of mini-laptops. Padded tray bottoms and plastic divider sleeves protect the mini-laptops from damage.

Special attention is given to cord management, with easy access to electrical power in each bay. Optional cord trays offer further support in back of the unit. Doors and panels are effectively ventilated for circulating “chimney effect” airflow to keep netbooks cool. High-pressure laminate is provided as a durable and useful writing surface. As with all Spectrum products, solid construction is designed into the mLT30 with steel doors and panels. The electrical system is comprised of UL-certified components. A rear door with 2-point lock for extra security is available as an option.

Spectrum Industries’ mLT30 is designed with superior style and performance – as expected from the industry’s premier laptop cart manufacturer, Spectrum Industries.

Innovative Universal Design Lectern Introduced By Spectrum Industries


Spectrum Industries is proud to introduce the Freedom Lectern – a combination of quality, flexibility, and aesthetics unparalleled by any lectern on the market.

Today’s lecterns lack the versatility to be ergonomically managed by a variety of staffed instructors. In addressing this issue, the Freedom Lectern reflects Spectrum’s endearing relationship with our customers and their needs. With the push of a button, a whisper quiet electrical lift adjusts the height of the entire worksurface. Generous legroom is provided to give the instructor the option of sitting or standing up. Even wheelchair-bound instructors will find comfort with its ADA compliant design. Elegance is incorporated into this design with smoothly flowing features and casters hidden by a stylish lower skirt. The 1200lb rated casters allow superb mobility with the Freedom Lectern, and top quality construction ensures an extensive lifetime of use. Technological capabilities and convenience are provided with standard cord reel, auxiliary power strip, and grommet pass-throughs. Options include a CPU sling, folding shelf, and pullout work surface that can be used as a keyboard tray.

The Freedom Lectern – a universal design blending expert agility with striking sophistication.

Spectrum Introduces NEW Multi-Use Desk System


Spectrum Industries, manufacturer of innovative quality computer furniture is proud to present the Electric Flat Panel Monitor (eFPM) desk.. When classroom space is at a premium, the eFPM will convert a lecture room into a computer lab in seconds. When lessons, tests, or instructions must be read on a monitor, the eFPM allows the instructor to maintain eye contact with students. The quiet, smooth electric lift brings a VESA compatible swivel-mounted flat panel monitor to a manageable and ergonomic level, while well-designed cord management provides for an organized computer setting. Ample worksurface area, not to mention generous keyboard and mouse storage space, allows for easy conversion to a lecture environment. Aesthetically pleasing and manufactured using a robust steel frame, the eFPM reflects Spectrum’s environmentally-friendly culture with the usage of recycled materials in its design.
