An extraordinarily rich and wide-ranging set of jobs require people who can work comfortably yet diligently at some sort of desk or counter. Since many of these jobs demand some kind of specialized knowledge or skills, they are only growing in number and economic importance. Moreover, many of the workplaces that host these very same jobs also have their own peculiar storage needs. A natural solution to all of these challenges is to get some quality-designed cabinets, counters, and casework.
With these additions to your workplace, you’ll establish convenient and ergonomically designed environments for your workers to ply their trades. They will also have secure and resilient places in which to store some crucial tools, supplies, uniforms, and chemicals. Or anything else that the staff might need throughout the day. In fact, with the right sort of storage and workstations, you may even be able to kill both of these birds with the very same stone.
RDM Industrial Products has spent the last four decades building and maintaining a reputable name in the field of industrial-grade furniture solutions. Our custom cabinets, counters, and casework workstations are among the things we are most proud of making. Over the years, these furniture solutions have helped customer after customer upgrade their workplaces into better, more streamlined and seamlessly functioning environments.
We’d be glad to help you enjoy the same benefits, but first, let us explain just how our products can do that for you. Here’s a bit of important information about some of the different types of industrial-grade and commercial cabinets, counters and casework, that we can manufacture. A few of the various kinds of work environments that can be, and have been, transformed by them for the better; and what they can do to enhance your workplace in particular.
Some of Our Various Cabinets, Counters and Casework Models
Here are just a few of the many things in this diverse area that RDM can create for your workplace:
Standard Commercial Casework:
This general design involves both an upper and a lower set of cabinets, both of which have Eruo-style slab doors. The bottom units also have shelves atop their doors and are topped off by a small work surface. They are not designed for any kind of heavy-duty use, but they can perform basic storage functions.
PCB Storage Units:
Printed Circuit Board units are deigned to be insulated against electricity and to be non-flammable. As such, they are ideal for storing sensitive or volatile chemicals or other kinds of reactive equipment. Our units can be made of MDF, lightweight MDF, plywood or with particle boards. They can also be laminated with plastic, given a melamine finish or coated with ESD to guard against static. We can also put these units on wheels to make it easy for you to transport any of the equipment they carry.
Cleaning Room & Laboratory Casework:
Units in this category are absolutely ideal for use in laboratories of all kinds. They are designed to have all the qualities that lab researchers seek. Features that help them get to work on their research or store away crucial equipment when it’s not in use. The basic designs also involve flat work surfaces with a base-level storage area and a set of further storage cabinets placed overhead and attached to a wall. Both parts of this setup are made of stainless steel to make them maximally damage-resistant. We can also custom-design them to be chemical-resistant and/or flame-resistant. Thus enabling them to reliably withstand even the harshest conditions likely to be found in a lab. Overhead storage units can either be suspended from a wall or directly attached to the work surface.

Lockers and Storage Units:
Our lockers — mainly meant to be used for storing clothes, uniforms and other staff belongings which, for one reason or another, should be kept away from the main work environment — are made of melamine and can be laminated with plastic to give them a glossy finish. Their doors lock securely, so whatever you store in them will be safe. But they are not designed to store hazardous material. For that, some of the other specially designed units that have been mentioned above are more appropriate. Our special storage units, however, hare made of stupider stuff — namely, stainless steel. Their main hallmark, however, is that rather than doors, they use drawers in which to store things. You also have the option of putting them on wheels for the sake of ease of transport.
Standard Service Counters:
These units can be made in a range of different heights between 34 and 48 inches. Beneath their flat work surface are a series of shelves on which workers can store materials that they will need to have close at hand. Units can be made in either a standard straight or an L-shaped configuration.
Work Surfaces for Receptionists:
We also manufacture work surfaces that are ideal for use in a reception room, where workstations tend to be larger. Such workstations can come with file drawers and pedestals for the receptionist’s use. Plus its upper surface can be customized to be anywhere between 36 and 48 inches off the ground. It can even be made with a cantilevered lower-level desk surface with a variable height of between 28 and 30 inches.
Demonstration or Display Surfaces:
If you need surfaces on which to leave certain items on display — not necessarily for workers to perform continuous daily tasks at — then RDM has you covered as well. Like our PCB units, these can also be made of either MDF, lightweight MDF, plywood or particle boards. We can laminate them for you with plastic, or give them a melamine finish. And we can outfit them with containment curbs to ensure that the objects you place upon them don’t roll or fall off. If you need us to, we can even make these units chemical-resistant.
What you’ve seen here is only a rather rudimentary discussion of what we can offer you. Once you factor in all of our many customization options, the set of possibilities explodes. For a deeper look into out different custom cabinets and casework, clickhere.
General Features of Cabinets, Counters and Casework
We’ve already alluded to some general features above. Here are a few more specific custom features that we can add in to the units you order and how they can enhance your workplace:
Stainless Steel Construction:
The benefits of having units made of stainless steel are fairly obvious. Included in the list is, longevity, strength, reliability, safety, etc. If your workplace is one where these qualities are needed, check out ourstainless steel options.
Special Surface Options:
Here, we have in mind the ability to coat the surfaces of our units to give them various special properties. Such as, flame-resistance and chemical-resistance. In addition to these two big and popular options, we can also coat many surfaces in ESD to curb the transmission of static electricity. Some other options include Trespa TopLab, epoxy resin, Trespa Athlon and corian. Any and all of these can be of critical importance in a lab setting, depending on the sorts of chemical agents you’ll be working with. That makes safety the primary benefit of all of these options.
Workplaces that Stand to Benefit
Now that you’ve seen what kinds of units we have and what they can do, what kinds of workplaces have been, and continue to be, enhanced by their use. Here are just a few:
- laboratories of all kinds, whether they’re involved in research, design or anything else
- university and high school science labs
- medical schools
- office buildings of any kind with reception rooms
- stores wishing to give customers a look at their products
Without a good place to work, it won’t be possible to do much work. And without places to store materials, operations in a great many workplaces will be stymied. These two obvious truths should indicate all on their own the great importance good commercial cabinets and workstations to all kinds of workplaces. And with their many useful features, their ability to enhance the workplace — both from a productive and a stylistic perspective — cannot be denied.
