A standard flat top workbench is one of the most popular styles. These can be stationary, rolling, or even adjustable. Some may have lower cross members, have four legs only, or contain six legs (including heavy duty models). Table surface may be stainless steel, solid wood (butcher block), plastic laminate, static-resistant, chemical resistant, and more. Depending on your usage, some may be easier to work with than others. Be sure to choose the best surface for the intended work application. Weight capacities are generally high to accommodate heavy work tools and other high weight workloads.
Tech Benches with Upper Shelving
Tech benches are useful to those who will need outlets and other electronic accessories on their industrial workbench. The most popular of these options is a tech bench with lower cross members and upper shelving. They also may come with four legs only, six or more legs (also in heavy duty), multiple upper shelves, or in a deluxe model with an overhead light boom and many other accessories. Which is chosen will greatly depend on the intended usage. These are often used for seated desk-style tables. However, they can also come in other heights, including adjustable.
