The Importance Of Ergonomic Workstations
Here at RDM, we believe that having the right tool for the job helps to increase safety and productivity. A commonplace this is overlooked is with laboratory equipment, specifically workstations. Ergonomic workstations offer increased levels of adjustability and comfort for your whole team.
One of the major ways we have increased the ergonomics of our laboratory equipment is withheight adjustability. Being able to change the height of an adjustable lab bench depending on the type of research being conducted allows you to save valuable space in the laboratory. This feature can also increase your team’s confidence while they perform precise procedures.
How Mobility Can Help To Increase Efficiency In The Lab
When most people think of ergonomic lab equipment, they go straight for height adjustability, but forget about mobility.Mobile lab tablesmake it effortless to customize and optimize workstations as your research progresses. They also make it easy for you to transfer your work, or equipment from one laboratory to the next in an efficient and organized fashion.
At RDM, we can help you increase the mobility of your workstations depending on your needs. The first kind of mobile workstation we offer is maneuverable lab tables and carts. These are easy to transfer to and from work areas, and they achieve this mobility with a smaller, easy to handle, stature. Larger lab benches and workstations can be equipped with durable research-grade casters that will allow them to be moved when needed. At RDM we work hard to ensure that adding mobility does not sacrifice the precision and rigidity found on our equipment.
How To Choose The Correct Ergonomic Laboratory Furniture?
When considering what kind of laboratory equipment you are looking for, consider how much space you are going to need. As well as what kind of work you will be doing at the workstation. You should also contemplate if you are going to use one workstation for multiple kinds of research. And keep in mind, the kinds of potentially hazardous conditions the workstation will be experiencing during its service.
Our team of experts can help you pick out the equipment that best fits the spacial and material constraints of your workplace. We have a wide selection of laboratory equipment that we can use as a template to build into your optimal workstation. All of our products feature industrial quality construction that will be able to stand up to the rigors of laboratory life.
What Customizations Are Available For Ergonomic Laboratory Furniture?
Customizing your ergonomic laboratory equipment is one of the best ways to ensure that it meets all of your needs. The first and easiest way to customize your equipment is by size. You can either get your equipment in one of our standard sizes, or you can specify custom dimension requirements. Additionally, you can specify how much height adjustment you need for your line of work. Height adjustment ranges anywhere from six inches to over sixteen inches depending on the model of the table. We can also beef up the materials used in the construction of the equipment. This will increase the overall weight capacity of the lift system and the table. The recommended weight capacities vary from 500 pounds to over 3,000 pounds. These weight capacities are often more than enough for most lines of work.
Another customization to ponder is what kind of material do you need the surface of the workstation to be. If you plan on working with corrosive materials, the plastic, stainless steel, or our chemical resistant compound are going to be some of the top choices. The electrostatic discharge and static-control surfaces are great for any sensitive electronics. While the solid wood butcher’s block is great for food preparation and research. These are some of the top surface materials we offer, and our team can help you choose the one that best fits your line of work or research.
Most of our adjustable work stations share a common industrial aesthetic that will fit into any professional work environment. However, we can customize the color pallet if you want your lab equipment to fit an existing style. The adjustability found on our workstations is primarily the result of either leg pins or an electronically controlled hydraulic lift system that comes with a manual hand crank backup. You can choose which of these options work best for your applications
How Accessories Can Help Increase Organization and Proficiency
Nearly all of our workstations can be further optimized with the usage of accessories. However, some accessories are exclusive to certain types of workstations. One of the most common yet effective types of accessories is the utility drawer. The utility drawer is a great way to keep track of important research notes and paperwork. Or it makes for a great place to store your tools while you move your workstation. Another great feature to consider is light fixtures. They allow you to have a consistent light source independent of your surroundings. Personal light sources can be manipulated without disturbing your peers. Adding features like an adjustable upper shelf, bin rail, or lower shelf will add some much-needed space. Organization and storage space are critical in a crowded laboratory workstation.
