Hertz Furniture has a huge selection of science tables that can fit any space or budget. With great models from Allied Plastics, Diversified Woodcrafts and National Public Seating, you can be sure that these laboratory tables will look great through many years of lessons and trials. Many of our tables even come with extended warranties so they are guaranteed to stay in shape even longer.
The main concerns when selecting any laboratory furniture for an educational setting are safety and durability. When students are using harsh chemicals and heat, equipment can easily get ruined if it is not designed specially for use in a lab. Unreliable tools can also lead to injuries or damage to personal items that are in the classroom, so safety instruction should come first and foremost on the agenda.
One of the main ways to ensure that all experiments are conducted properly and safely is by providing the right work surfaces. Regular school tables do not have the chemical and heat resistance that is required for the advanced science applications that are needed in a middle or high school classroom. Every student science lab needs specially-designed lab tables with highly-durable work surfaces.
Although all of the laboratory tables we offer are designed for use in the science classroom, there are varying degrees of resistance. For schools on a tight budget, lower resistance costs less, however, if your institution can afford it, the highest level of durability is always ideal. To ensure that the tables you choose are appropriate for the applications they are going to be used for, it is a good idea to review the science curriculum before purchasing anything to ensure that your lab furniture is designed to support the toughest chemicals and temperatures you will be using.
The strongest tabletops are made from solid epoxy resin. This super-durable material is completely impervious to most chemicals and acids. Even normal laboratory heat and moisture will not damage or change them. Every chemistry classroom should have this degree of durability so student experiments aren’t limited by the furniture.
If you just don’t have room in the budget for the highest levels of durability, or you are certain that students won’t be experimenting with any strong chemicals, there are more budget-friendly alternatives. Chem-res chemical resistant work surfaces are resistant to most chemicals and stains, so basic experiments won’t cause them damage. However, their resistance to high temperatures and severe chemicals is limited.
For the most budget-friendly science table option out there, we have great models from Allied Plastics. They have sturdy steel frames and Chemsurf chemical resistant laminate tops. With this option, you can get sturdy, durable lab tables at a significantly discounted price. This choice is great for a middle school science classroom where basic experiments are occasionally performed but harsh chemicals are never used.
For a flexible option that will accommodate all students in any type of chair, adjustable-height lab tables are the way to go. ADA compliant schools take planning, and if you want to make sure that every student can sit comfortably in a science lesson, you need tables that can fit wheelchairs underneath them. Not all regular-height tables have this capability.
Having trouble getting experiments done with books piled on the table and pens rolling everywhere? To ensure that nothing interferes with experiments, there needs to be a good place to put students’ belongings, especially if classes include both frontal lessons and hands-on activities. Book boxes are a convenient solution because they are built right into the science table so materials remain accessible yet out of the way.
Give curious students the platform to enjoy hands-on education in the science classroom with great lab tables from Hertz Furniture. With appropriate science tables, experiments are easy and safe, so students can learn in the optimal environment.

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. With excellent science furniture, you can start to inspire the doctors, engineers and scientists of tomorrow.
