Basic lab tables are not sufficient for some laboratory environments. Shelving may be required to store reference materials and in inspection areas, an overhead light boom may be necessary to provide the work surface with sufficient lighting. High quality industrial furniture manufacturers like RDM Industrial Products offer these components in configurations that are customizable to meet user needs.
Shelving options vary depending on the type of work table selected. If fixed height versions are not adequate, adjustable height is offered for various one and multi-shelf model table risers. Ergonomic lab tables have a lift feature and are ADA accessible. Corner tables may be ordered with corner shelves designed to hold books and light equipment. Special use tables include a tech station that features multiple split upper shelves and a printer workstation with paper storage decks.
Lab tables are available with different frame and top compositions. Frames are usually made from metal or wood and are stationary or include casters. Tops include standard, static control, or chemical resistant versions made from laminate, solid surface, wood, or stainless steel. If non-ferrous construction is selected, these tables may be used for optical or MRI purposes.
When full coverage illuminated overhead frames are combined with flat work tables, workers can conduct quality control inspections without needing additional light. The frame can be ordered with five fluorescent lamp fixtures, each containing two bulbs. This provides the work surface with approximately 100fc of lighting. An eight-outlet power strip with a 15-foot cord is just one of the other optional features that may add convenience to the job.
Add-on Shelving (Table Risers) and overhead frames enable a basic work table to be more functional. Lab tables are available in custom sizes and styles, with various optional features. By being able to include every option needed, a lab customer maximizes worker productivity. Money and time are saved because this furniture is pre-assembled so it can begin being used immediately following delivery.
