Just in time for the back-to-school season, KI is releasing a long-awaited component to its Ruckus Collection: Ruckus Storage. The new addition to the line will help both teachers and students keep learning tools handy and learning spaces neat.

Like all the products in the Ruckus Collection, Ruckus Storage helps organize the chaos by being able to reconfigure at a moment’s notice. Many teachers in today’s school systems are often left to develop their own do-it-yourself storage or furniture, often paying out of their own pocket for solutions.

Ruckus Storage and the entire Ruckus Collection can provide schools with high-function, high-quality solutions, while still giving teachers the flexibility to move, manipulate and personalize the products to fit their curriculum or individual needs.

At 18 inches in overall depth, Ruckus Storage’s fresh line of single-face cubbies, lockers, bookcases and tote storage units have a small footprint and can fit nicely within classrooms of all sizes.

BUILDINGS Award Winner

Ruckus Collection was recognized as a Product Innovations Merit Award winner.

KI also received two other awards, including an Editor’s Choice. Check out all the winners here.

Large casters enable Ruckus Storage to easily move, therefore empowering teachers to change classrooms on the fly to meet students’ needs.
