While basic office furniture is sufficient in some environments, others require special furnishings intended for the jobs being performed. Light tables are designed for environments that require a translucent or transparent work surface featuring integrated lighting. This lights the area from underneath, making inspection or creation an easier process.
Uses for Industrial Tables Featuring Integrated Lighting
When lighting is positioned within the tabletop, the entire work surface is illuminated from underneath this surface. The light source is housed in a box and distributed up through the surface of the table. This makes it possible to overlay architectural drawings for review or sketching, review X-rays, and inspect semi-transparent or transparent items directly on the table surface.
The customizable size of the lighted area is covered with frosted glass on the top surface. The remainder of the worktop can be covered in plastic laminate, a chemical-resistant solid surface, or one of several other materials. Fluorescent lighting is used to illuminate the table and a dimmable switch is provided so the worker can adjust illumination to the required level.
Sizes and Features of Customizable Light Tables
This lab furniture comes in a variety of configurations that increase its functionality. If the workspace will not accommodate a standard-sized table, a customized version can be designed. A lighted table featuring a lifting top makes standing work more comfortable. Small inspection carts with casters, light panels, and hydraulic lifts make work even more convenient because they can be repositioned as required.
Light tables provide illumination required to create drawings, analyze X-rays, and inspect products that feature a level of transparency. Customized designs make these furnishings movable and tiltable. A variety of surfaces and accessories are available, expanding the potential environments for use. When a task requires back-lit illumination for inspection or creation of a product, these tables deliver it without the need to install tabletop lighting.
