In some work environments, a fixed height table is not sufficient and an adjustable table is required instead. Adjustable height tables make it convenient for workers to access and see the items they are working on. They also enable people of different heights to use the same workstation by making only a minor adjustment. When they order height adjustable tables, you can reduce the amount of furniture needed, lowering overall costs.
Adjustable height tables come in different styles designed to withstand various types of use. Standard to heavy duty tables are used in laboratories and manufacturing environments. A light to medium duty adjustable table is also suitable for a laboratory or office environment and can frequently be found in a college or university classroom.
An adjustable height table can be used as an equipment stand, microscope table, or a standard work surface. Workers in wheelchairs find it most comfortable to work at an ADA handicapped accessible adjustable table because they can adjust the work surface to the proper level for working from their chair. When they finish working, they simply raise the height of the table in order to safely remove themselves from the area.
Customers can save money by retrofitting existing tables with leg lift kits. These kits support up to 20,000 pounds and turn a stationary height table into an adjustable height table. Manual or electric operation is available and one to six cylinder versions can be found. When a light duty lift system is selected, a memory switch allows users to program their desired table height.
Height adjustable tables may contain four or more legs, depending on the size of the work surface. Adjustable table legs can be equipped with casters that allow the table to be moved. There are full-time caster tables, which provide casters (wheels) that remain in contact with the floor at all times. There are also momentary casters, which raise and lower with the frame. This style provides the best option for tables that hold heavy machinery, since the table cannot be moved around when the table legs are extended at any height. Adjustable height tables are available in many configurations and lift styles at RDM Industrial Products. Feel free to contact them for your adjustable table needs.
