Launches First Series of Fully UL Certified Flat Panel Carts and Two Cost-Effective Lines of AV Cart Retrofit Kits; Demonstrates Complete AV Furniture Solutions

CHICAGO – June 5, 2008 – Bretford Manufacturing, Inc. (InfoComm Booth #N5841), a leading supplier of technology and media furniture that improves how people work and learn, will focus on AV furniture safety and sustainability in its booth during InfoComm 08, June 18-20 in Las Vegas, NV. To exemplify these points, Bretford is unveiling the new FPBBUL Series of high-safety wide-body flat panel carts, along with two new cost-effective lines of Retrofit Kits for Bretford-branded AV and CRT television carts. Booth visitors can also expect to see a complete line-up of application-focused AV furniture solutions from Bretford, receive a demonstration of the company’s new partner extranet site, and learn more about Bretford’s GREENGUARD-certified products and other environmental milestones.

Bretford’s 20-by-40-foot booth space will feature market-specific vignettes depicting education, corporate, government and retail environments. The vignettes will illustrate how Bretford’s comprehensive AV furniture offering – mounts, tables, carts, lecterns, workstations and more – can be used together to complete a room. When combined with endless design colors and finishes, and continuous product training and support, Bretford allows AV resellers to ultimately streamline purchases and maximize profits.

FPBBUL Series Wide-Body Flat Panel Carts

The new FPBBUL Series of wide-body flat panel carts safely holds and transports any size LCD and plasma display weighing up to 85 lbs. The carts offer the most complete range of safety features available. Each full cart (not just the electrical components) is certified to comply with UL standard 1667 for tall institutional carts. They feature a wide body design and two fixed casters for added monitor stability, and include a top shelf handle for easy control during transit. The carts have passed a 10-degree incline stability test in order to significantly reduce tipping; they are also load tested to four times the intended weight to ensure a secure platform and long product life.

2642NSKIT and BB Wide-Body Cart Retrofit Kits
Bretford introduced some of the industry’s first mobile carts back in the 1960s and thanks to the new retrofit kits, carts that are decades old can now continue to be used safely and cost-effectively. The 2642NSKIT retrofit kit is for Bretford’s adjustable A2642/CA2642 AV carts, originally designed for reel-to-reel and slide projectors. It includes a pullout notebook shelf to make it more functional and to provide educators greater interaction with such technology products as laptops and projectors. The new BB Wide-Body Cart Retrofit Kits allow schools to convert BB Series CRT-style TV carts from Bretford for use with today’s flat panels without having to purchase a new cart. This kit replaces the existing top shelf with a reinforced steel shelf that accommodates the new weight distribution and will not deform or tear. Both kits reduce the amount of materials and energy required during the manufacturing process, not to mention their original shelf is 100 percent steel, which is the No. 1 recyclable material today.

BretfordCommons Extranet Site
Launched earlier this year, BretfordCommons (www.bretfordcommons.com), the company’s new partner extranet site, provides confidential and customized access to product training modules, sales and marketing tools, and up-to-the-minute order communication. BretfordCommons demonstrations will take place in the booth, giving resellers a firsthand opportunity to view the site, ask questions and register as a member.
