When we think of a work table, we often picture a flat surface supported by four legs, similar to an architectural drafting table. The modern style of industrial workbenches offered by RDM Industrial Products is very different from this, with furniture options like L-shaped workbenches being used in laboratory, manufacturing, and regular office environments. These work benches include features designed to suit nearly every industry’s needs.
With an L-shaped work bench, users have the benefit of two work surfaces, placed in a 90-degree angle formation. Tables may include utility or file drawers, a half or full depth lower shelf, and a sliding keyboard and mouse tray. An optional power strip can be selected if the consumer prefers to plug equipment in at the table level, instead of crawling around on the floor.
When this shape of industrial workbenches is selected, different configurations are possible. Each work surface may be the same length and width or the customer may opt to have one surface shorter in length than the other. Often, the space available in the facility or office determines the dimensions and configuration of the L-shaped work table, so the option to customize is welcomed at RDM.
Workbenches are available in different heights, with 30 inches being the standard height for a sitting desk and 36 inches standard for a desk used for standing tasks. The ADA accessible height of 34 inches is also available. If none of these is suitable, a custom height can also be provided to meet consumer needs. Frames and legs are made from fully-welded tubular steel and leveler feet are included on the legs.
Since these industrial workbenches may serve different purposes in different environments, a variety of tabletop options are made available by RDM. Plastic laminate, solid wood, stainless steel, and solid surface are the most common. Electropolished stainless steel is ideal for a cleanroom and chemical resistant and static control tops are also available.
