On National Teacher Day and every day, Batteries Plus is committed to helping teachers, administrators and maintenance workers as you prepare your facilities for fall. The last year was a period of unprecedented change, with educators forced to confront a whole new set of challenges. As you prepare your facility for what lies ahead, we know you have a lot to consider. That's why we're here to help. Our stores can provide you with the batteries, lighting and additional services you need to light classrooms, keep communications systems running, power touch-free soap and towel dispensers, charge laptops and make sure tablet screens are intact, lit and ready for each teachable moment.
Classroom lighting plays a vital role in creating an atmosphere conducive to learning. We can help you save on all of your lighting essentials, including ballasts and bulbs for overhead lighting, projectors, as well as exit and emergency lighting. We can also supply you with alkaline batteries for remotes, smoke detectors and hand sanitizer stations, as well as longer-lasting lithium-ion batteries that offer a much better ROI. Do you use laptops or tablets as part of your curriculum? Our stores are stocked with replacement batteries and chargers and offer battery installation and other repair services.
In light of COVID-19, hygiene has become more important than ever before. Our experts can help you prioritize the safety of your students and staff by installing touch-free faucets, toilets and paper towel dispensers in your bathrooms. We'll also help you power touchless devices with the longest-lasting alkaline and lithium battery options. Save your facilities both time and money by choosing the right battery for your specific applications.
While we're on the topic of hygiene, let's talk maintenance equipment. Batteries Plus stocks a wide selection of batteries for all types of scrubbers and sweepers. Our stores offer 6-volt, 8-volt and 12-volt batteries and can provide you with both standard batteries that utilize quick recharging, or high amp versions which can be charged overnight. Not sure what battery you need? Our experts can point you towards the best possible battery for your brand of scrubber, along with the charger you need to maintain it.
Make sure your hallways are brightly lit. Whether you rely on panel lighting, downlights, LED T8 or fluorescent tubes, we have you covered with long-lasting bulbs and replacement ballasts. Are your exit and emergency lighting needs being met? Our stores can provide you with additional fixtures.
Let's take a walk outside. Exterior lighting is an important part of maintaining student and worker safety. We offer fixtures for parking lots, walkways and other high-traffic areas. Plus, we can advise you on ways in which your outdoor lighting can be improved.
How about your gymnasium? Our stores can provide you with bulbs and ballasts for LED high bays or other interior lighting. Does your gym still use incandescent lighting? You can cut down significantly on your energy costs and maintenance time just by switching to more efficient lighting. Our experts can help guide you through the process of an LED retrofit and will help you take advantage of any rebate programs available to help you maximize your savings.
In response to the COVID pandemic, virtual learning has become increasingly common. That means lots of laptops and tablets that need to be maintained. The good news? Almost every one of our 700+ Batteries Plus stores features their own in-house device repair capabilities. Not sure if your batteries are past their prime? Bring them in and have them tested for free. Our additional services include tablet and laptop battery replacement. Need additional tablet repairs? Our technicians also fix broken screens, buttons, ports and speakers. Plus, all of our repairs are backed up by a six-month warranty.
Our on-site and virtual facility assessments provide you with ways to use power and lighting more efficiently and help you cut down on costs. Whether it's transitioning your school to more efficient lighting or helping you find a better battery for remotes and hand sanitizer stations. When you sign up for a business account, you'll also be given access to your own dedicated advisor who is there to answer difficult questions and point you towards solutions you might not have even thought of. In addition, we offer customizable recycling services which enable you to dispose of your spent batteries and bulbs both easily and responsibly.
This is just a small preview of what Batteries Plus can do for you. Come see why over 9,100 schools, from pre-schools to universities, rely on us to keep them supplied with the power and lighting resources they need to provide students with the best experience possible.
