DuraWood Features

Beautiful Furniture Quality

All of our DuraWood book returns are constructed of ¾” plywood with a sturdy oak veneer. Each piece is stained in one of 3 colors and hand polished to ensure a quality finish on every unit. Children’s Book House is painted oak veneer in sunshine yellow and fire engine red.

Hides dirt and pesky prints

The top of each non-rolling depository is covered in black textured paint which hides dust, dirt, and fingerprints to keep your unit looking new with minimal effort. Children’s Book House and EasyRoller excluded. Units also have a special antimicrobial coating to help stop the spread of germs.

Wood Line Features

Both our ColorWood and DuraWood lines of returns share many of the same quality features. No matter which look you decide to go with, you can be sure you’re getting the quality of a Kingsley unit.

Bottom interior of a DuraWood unit in Light Maple

Sturdy Construction

Our wood lines are made with ¾” thick sides. This thickness gives it rigidity and allows it to hold up better to moisture and abuse than lighter weight substrates. We use high-quality, European hardware including hidden hinges as well as a brace for stability.

360 degree rotation on a 50 ColorWood Unit in Canadian Gray

Easily fits your space

Need your depository opening and cart access door on different sides? Not a problem. The top of the stationary wood units can be rotated 360͒ for custom access door placement (rolling units excluded). In addition, the cart access doors on these units open down the middle to take up less space when open than a single door configuration.

ChipGuard on a DuraWood

Metal ChipGuard

A single piece metal ChipGuard surrounds each depository opening to protect against wear and keep your wood unit from chipping so it says looking newer, longer.

Door lock and latch on a ColorWood unit in Island


All of our units come with a keyed cam lock to keep the cabinets and contents secure. Freestanding units with two doors have an additional latch to secure the left door and keep it from opening. The depository openings are also designed to keep hands and arms from reaching in to grab deposited materials.

Books silkscreen on a DuraWood unit

Simple Standard Wording

Identify the purpose of your unit with our standard wording. Choose between “BOOKS” or “MEDIA” to be silk screened below the depository opening for stationary units. EasyRoller units come with two vinyl decals (one “BOOKS” and one “MEDIA”) and application instructions. Children’s book houses come with “books” vinyl decals already applied to the sides.
