The ANIMATE solution provides power to spaces without the need for a fixed power supply. At the heart of the ANIMATE solution is the QikPAC battery, a rechargeable commercial grade portable power pack.
Born from the idea that people should be able to work anywhere, ANIMATE modules can be integrated seamlessly into workstations, furniture and fixtures to provide easily accessible power. Independence from a fixed power supply enables complete agility in commercial spaces where furniture can be placed to suit the end users’ needs rather than the available fixed power sockets.
Designing a flexible workspace that can easily be adapted to a wide range of uses maximises your investment. Incorporating QIKPAC into commercial furniture provides mobility without compromising on connectivity. Furniture can be moved around to suit the end users’ needs not the fixed power supply.
Incorporating innovative technologies into workspace design gives us a real opportunity to futureproof the office, providing flexible user experiences that drive business productivity today and well into the future.
Providing mobile furniture with integrated connectivity promotes agile learning spaces ensuring students get the most out of their academic day. Specfurn offer a range of innovative technologies that fit seamlessly into education furniture and can be powered by mains or our patented QIKPAC battery solution.
Designed for the commercial space a single QIKPAC battery will provide up to 28 hours of laptop power from a single charge. Individual QIKPAC batteries in their own purpose designed carry cases are the perfect solution for setting up exam rooms cable free. Saves time on set up and pack down and provides a safer environment free from trip hazards.
Whether creating small task-based spaces or a large group learning space, it has never been easier to include portable power and device charging, the options really are only limited by your imagination.
When we began work on the animate range, scalability was at the forefront of the design. We wanted the ecosystem to be just as suitable for a single piece of furniture, as it would be for the entire building. That’s why with just two elements of the range, the QIKPAC battery and the TUF HP USB charger, you can incorporate high power fast USB A+C laptop and mobile charging into something as small and portable as an ottoman.
The QIKPAC battery can provide 72W power delivery charging for laptops, mobile phones and tablets ensuring hours of continuous use. When the QIKPAC battery starts to run low, simply click it out using the QIKPAC Removal Tool and click in a fresh battery.
Modular and Scaleable
The ANIMATE modular range is scalable providing power for any required number of USB and/or wireless chargers. Furthermore, the small form factor and discreet fitting options allow for a 100% clear work surface.
A single lead from a wall socket will power multiple QF PSUs which in turn power the PICCOLO and ARC charging modules. If there is no available power supply then the entire boardroom table can be powered with QIKPAC commercial grade rechargeable batteries.
The ANIMATE range connects seamlessly to our existing QIKFIT power range. If you have a wall-mounted TV or screen, a QIKFIT power module can be added to the circuit to power them also.
Recycling QIKPAC Batteries
Specfurn has an end of life policy recommending all QIKPAC batteries are recycled. Specfurn has partnered with B-Cycle to provide an end-of-life solution for our QIKPAC batteries. B-Cycle is Australia’s official battery stewardship scheme providing a recycling process that ensures the precious materials in every battery you drop off get made into something new. All batteries are processed at Australia’s very own onshore battery recycling plant, Envirostream.
The Envirostream recycling facility is equipped to recover the maximum amount of resources (~95%) from all types of spent batteries. Those resources are then returned to the manufacturing sector, with the active components of end-of-life Li-ion batteries – cobalt, nickel, lithium and graphite – subsequently used as raw materials in the production of new Li-ion batteries. Recycling batteries creates a truly circular, and therefore sustainable, battery economy.
Please contact Specfurn for recycling information and collection points. Recycling is local, easy and free! There is simply no reasons for spent batteries to leave Australia or be consigned to landfill.
