Over the years, important laboratory equipment and furnishings, will inevitably endure quite a bit of wear and tear. Chemical spills, scratches, abrasions and other kinds of mishaps and signs of damage will build up. And general aging of equipment isn’t the only enemy you’ll have to fight. It’s also true that even the most careful group of researchers will occasionally mishandle corrosive chemicals and accidentally damage lab furnishings.
With all of these things working against you, it’s definitely a good idea to get the most durable furnishings for your lab that you possibly can.
That’s where stainless steel comes in.
Stainless steel furnishingsare tough enough to withstand large amounts of accumulated damage. Plus their longevity makes them a natural choice for lab managers who are committed to making sure that their laboratories stay running smoothly for years on end.
RDM Industrial Products offers a wide selection of industrial-quality stainless steel furniture to make your lab a more complete workplace. Please note also that we’re able to custom design much of this furniture according to your specifications.
Here is a brief discussion of some of the different kinds of factory direct stainless steel furniture that we have waiting for you and your lab or industrial workspace.
Stainless Steel Furnishings:
Each researcher in your lab needs a workbench that’s comfortable, spacious and tough enough to withstand damage from the occasional spill. Our stainless steel workbenches are simply designed, but more than durable enough to serve any purpose you may require. In addition to their smooth, flat and corrosion-and-chemical-resistant surfaces, our workbenches come equipped with overhead racks where you can place important supplies that you need to have close at hand. The F-103P-SS is a single-shelf model and the F-103PL/DS-SS comes with two shelves.
We also have adjustable-height stainless steel workbenches like the A-107P-SS, which uses a hydraulic lift.
We allow you to customize the size and dimensions of each workbench to your needs. And you cal add on whatever additional accessories you require.
Stainless steel tables are similar to our workbenches, but usually have a set of sliding drawers attached to them rather than some overhead shelves. Various widths and depths are available, depending on the model in which you are interested. These can range from as little as 30 inches to as much as 72 inches.
If smooth-top models aren’t what you need, we also offer the A-109P-SS-PERF, which is a perforated stainless steel table. Small adjustable-height tables like the i-107P-SS are also available.
In addition to corrosion and chemical resistance, you can also outfit your tables with static-resistant ESD.
Cabinets and Casework
Stainless steel cabinets are a particularly essential piece of hardware for your lab. With all of the many volatile compounds and important tools lying around in the lab, you really can’t do without some good storage cabinets.
First, we offer a standard 84-inch-high cabinet unit with a wealth of customization options open to the customer. You can choose to have the steel on this model be either corrosion-resistant or both chemical-and-corrosion-resistant. Various cabinet widths are available in 6-inch increments ranging from 18 inches to 48 inches. Both 16-inch and 21.25-inch deep units are available. Furthermore, you can choose to have either stainless steel doors, glass doors or no doors at all. Both sliding door and swinging door options are also available.
The major piece of stainless steel casework that we offer follows the following basic design: a long, flat counter with an array of drawers and base cabinets beneath it to provide you with extra storage space. The counter will usually include a sink where you can conveniently wash your hands. The entire units — including both the counter and the base cabinets — can be made corrosion-resistant, chemical-resistant and fireproof. Since all of our equipment is factory-direct, you may request other features as well.
Lockers are another excellent storage option. While are cabinets and casework are great for storing hazardous chemicals and other lab supplies, lab workers can store a change of clothes or some of their other personal items in a locker. Stainless steel lockers are durable and can reliably keep any belongings stored in them safe. The fact that they’re made of stainless steel also keeps them from rusting and adds to their longevity.
RDM offers stainless steel lockers in a number of different configurations. Each unit is 72 inches tall and can be made with single-tier, double-tier or six tier lockers. We can also make locker units and individual lockers of various widths.
Carts are a simple but excellent resource for your lab. If you ever find yourself needing to quickly and easily pass out supplies like gloves or safety goggles to scientists and lab assistants. Just pack a cart with whatever supplies you need and slide them across the lab towards whichever locations they’re needed in.
We sell a few different cards of stainless steel carts. Some models are essentially just flat stainless steel tables on wheels. We also sell a model with a protruding curb top that’s meant to keep all loaded items safely in place, even if the cart is being slid along at high speeds. Other models have both top and bottom-level surfaces, allowing you to load more things onto them. Still other carts are larger and have as many as four levels.
You’ll also have the option of outfitting your lab carts with sliding drawers which are also made of stainless steel. This is yet another add on to give your carts maximum carrying capacity.
As with all of our other manufacturer-direct stainless steel furniture, each cart model can be made into any of a variety of different sizes, making suitable for large labs as well as small ones.
