Planning your laboratory with the right lab furniture and lab benches is a complex challenge as there are numerous aspects and criteria to consider as you search for lab benches, workbenches, countertops, seats, and storage areas for your lab.
It is an important part of the planning process to consider all of the elements of office space and research lab, as well as how to best implement in a way that supports efficient scientific work.
As with most things, there are many differing perspectives on how to make the best use of research facilities, there are however some points that are universally agreed.
Creating the most optimal lab design is essential to any lab workspace, and in our experience, even the smallest of laboratory design errors can result in reducing output due to delays, so at Lab Fit we always work to create designs that optimise the science laboratory.
Laboratory furniture comes in various sizes and styles, depending on the purpose for which it will be used. When choosing the best furniture system for a particular lab environment, you might consider several things such as:
- Quality of the Furniture
When considering your lab furniture in the UK, quality is a crucial requirement and consideration. It is recommended that you opt for high-quality durable materials that are chemical and flame resistant.
Another important consideration is the quality of the installation and finish. It is important that the furniture is installed correctly to maximise durability and to avoid damage.
- Consult the users of the Lab
When planning your science lab take some time to brainstorm with those who will be using the facilities on a day-to-day basis, so the lab can be tailored to the needs of your team. Getting your team involved early in the design process and can avoid costly mistakes. The convenience of use is a feature that you cannot afford to miss when it comes to lab furniture. In choosing lab furniture it is worth considering the users and how they will use the furniture on a day-to-day basis to avoid time spent modifying lab seats, countertop heights, opening storage spaces, or even spreading out the tables.
Laboratories require furniture that is not only functional but also user-friendly. It’s critical that your furniture doesn’t interfere with the lab’s productivity or break under stress.
- Laboratory Conditions
The purpose of the lab will also determine which lab benching and furniture will be best. This is an essential factor to consider while purchasing furniture. Due to exposure requirements, various materials must be chosen to satisfy distinct conditions. Trespa benching are generally recommended as it provides a durable and chemical resistance surface.
- Functionality and Design
When purchasing furniture for your lab, it is worth considering the style and function. Many modern labs in the UK require portable and flexible systems that can readily adapt to lab workflow and increase efficiencies within workstations.
