When students see that a laboratory is properly equipped, they will come to understand the paramount importance of lab safety rules. The right protection will help students and teachers feel more secure as they conduct educational experiments. Contact Hertz Furniture to find out how you can furnish your laboratory with the appropriate lab safety equipment.
Finding the right equipment for your science lab begins with identifying which types of chemicals you will be using. In order to know how many lab-safe cabinets you need, it is a good idea to get an estimate of the quantities of chemicals that will be kept in your lab. We offer safety cabinets from Edsal which keep flammable chemicals securely stowed away. You can choose from a selection of sizes to fit your space and needs. A clearly visible warning on the outside of the cabinets ensures that chemicals will be handled properly. The cabinets can be locked when not in use and feature leak-proof doors.
Clear lab safety rules ensure that students know the proper way to handle lab equipment. Students should always make sure to wear safety smocks and goggles when they are handling potentially hazardous chemicals. Even when the proper precautions are taken, additional measures must be implemented in the unlikely case of an accident.
Any laboratory where chemicals are being used must have a safety shower. Emergency showers are specially designed for easy use at a moment’s notice. They are located inside the science lab, so they can be accessed immediately. In the event that someone accidentally spills chemicals, they can quickly run over and pull down the handle for an instant shower.
We offer safety shower stations from Diversified Woodcrafts and Guardian Equipment. Diversified Woodcrafts models include extra cabinets as well as eyewash stations. These all-in-one units can also be ordered in a wheelchair-accessible configuration. With everything in one place, it will be easy for students to remember where to go and what to do in case of an accidental spill or splatter.
Guardian Equipment offers a wide selection of safety showers. You can choose freestanding or recessed units which include built-in eyewash stations. Don’t worry about using up the precious space in your lab with so much equipment. If you want to save space, recessed units are an excellent choice. They utilize unused areas of your wall and ceiling, while offering easy activation.
Eye wash stations are available in a choice of configurations. They come as freestanding units, attached to a lab shower, counter-mounted or faucet-mounted. Faucet-mounted units can be attached to lab sinks. Emergency eyewashes include two valves which aim water at the eyes to clean them out as accurately and quickly as possible.
If you are planning on conducting many chemical experiments in your science lab, you should consider purchasing a fume hood. Fume hoods provide a safe, visible space for experiments. They keep fumes contained, protecting the experiment, environment and your students. We offer mobile fume hoods from Diversified Woodcrafts so you can enjoy safe experiments anywhere. If you prefer stationary models, we also have permanent fume hoods from Air Master. Each of these excellent options offers superior protection for you and your students.

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.
