Whether you have a school or commercial lab, you can find the right equipment at Hertz Furniture. With our safe and durable cabinets from Diversified Woodcrafts and Edsal, you can get great storage solutions for any space. With base cabinets, freestanding and wall-mounted units to choose from, finding the best way to arrange a science lab is smooth and easy.
Finding the right laboratory cabinet ultimately depends on what you want to store. Tall freestanding units are available with either clear glass or opaque wood doors. A large storage cabinet is great because it can hold lots of equipment and supplies. Glass doors are ideal if you want to be able to see the contents easily. This can save time because you won’t have to go rummaging through everything to figure out if what you are looking for is there. However, for those who are concerned about privacy and security, opaque doors are preferable so no one can see the valuable equipment that is stored inside.
There is also the matter or figuring out if drawers or cabinets are needed, or if some combination of the two is ideal. Lab cabinets can hold equipment and materials that are large and small, but drawers are sometimes preferable for smaller items such as knives and petri dishes. Tote trays are perfect for organizing petri dishes that contain experiments in progress. They will keep samples pure, and make it easy for students or researchers to find their specimens. For labs with many experiments taking place at once, full tote tray cabinets are available.
Lab cabinets come in both wall-mounted and freestanding models. Wall-mounted cabinets can fit right above laboratory workstations that are positioned along a wall. This arrangement utilizes open wall space while keeping materials accessible. Freestanding cabinets provide more storage per unit, but they also take up a considerable amount of floor space.
For maximum flexibility, there is also the portable option. Mobile lab storage is ideal when materials are shared among rooms or even in a large research lab. Rather than having to carry materials and science equipment from place to place, everything can simply be rolled to the desired destination. Base cabinets are another excellent option. They provide durable surfaces that can support experiments with convenient storage below.
Because science labs often house specialized equipment, custom storage solutions that are designed for specific items or materials can be quite helpful. Microscope storage cabinets will keep valuable equipment organized and safely stored, so it won’t get damaged inadvertently between uses. These mobile units eliminate the hassle and strain of having to carry heavy equipment between labs. They are the perfect solution for a school with multiple science classrooms but only one set of microscopes.
When studying certain subjects such as chemistry, potentially dangerous materials are sometimes needed for experiments. In order to make sure that these chemicals are stored in a safe place where no one will accidentally spill them or use them unsupervised, it is a good idea to equip your school science lab with a flammable liquids safety cabinet. A visible warning on the outside of the unit ensures that no one will mistakenly take out materials or use them for something else. With locking doors, double-walled 18-gauge welded steel construction and leak-proof door edges to prevent spills, you can be sure that flammable liquids will only be taken out when they are needed by responsible teachers or instructors.
Organizing a student or professional science laboratory is easy with Hertz Furniture’s great selection of laboratory furniture. Our lab cabinets are designed to provide secure storage for all of your equipment and materials so experiments can run as smoothly as possible. If you need some assistance in choosing the ideal storage arrangement for your particular space, contact the Hertz Design Center for free project-planning advice.

Science lab furniture requires extra durability. When students are working with tough materials, you need to ensure that an accidental spill won't ruin your lab tables or workstations. With specially-designed products from Diversified Wood Crafts, students can enjoy the full range of educational experiments without fear of damage to equipment.
To start with, students need an appropriate work surface in order to take notes, record data, and arrange experiments. Lab tables are specially designed to be functional during both frontal instruction and experiments. Diversified Woodcrafts offers three different kinds of tabletops, so you can choose the material that will support mediums your students will be working with. From basic High-Pressure Laminate to more durable ChemGuard, and finally ultra-tough Solid Epoxy Resin, you can find the ideal material for your work environment.
In addition to the work surface material of your science lab tables, you also need to choose the ideal configuration. While the two-student lab table provides maximum flexibility in terms of arrangement, lab workstations are another viable option. Workstations come in both two- and four-student models so you can maximize classroom space and enable students to work in larger groups. However, if your science classroom hosts a lot of frontal lessons, forward-facing workstations are ideal because no teacher wants to speak to students' backs.
Lab stations also have the additional benefit of a built-in lab sink. With water and gas fixtures readily-available to each small group of students, it is easier to conduct experiments independently and efficiently. Ultimately, the right choice between laboratory tables and lab workstations will depend on what they are being used for and what a school's science furniture budget is.
For those who opt out of the workstation option, it is still necessary to furnish the experiment space with lab sinks. Rather than having them as part of student workspaces, you can simply install a few laboratory sinks around the science classroom. Like work surfaces, lab sinks should be extra durable so they won't get damaged by chemicals and other harsh substances.
If your school doesn't have a designated science lab, or your instructors want a way to transport experiments without lifting sensitive materials, mobile labs can really come in handy. These freestanding units roll into position on large casters and can be locked into place for secure standing. With mobile labs any study space can be instantly transformed into a functional hands-on science classroom.
In addition to the basic must-haves, you might want to consider some extra science lab furniture from Diversified Woodcrafts. It is always good to have some storage space in the lab so you can keep microscopes, pipettes, petri dishes and other experiment materials close at hand. We have wall-mounted and freestanding cabinets with either opaque or glass doors. There are also special microscope storage cabinets which protect your valuable equipment.
Hertz Furniture brings you top of the line science furniture from Diversified Woodcrafts. This functional lab furniture comes with a complimentary Limited Lifetime Warranty which guarantees you many years of worry-free use. Figuring out the ideal arrangement for a science lab can be quite complicated, that's why the Hertz Design Center is here to help you with free design and project-planning advice.
