Laboratory workstations come in a selection of configurations. Features like chemical-resistant surfaces, strict adherence to inflammability codes and low-maintenance materials make them highly safe. From eye-wash stations to instructors' desks, your department will get an "A" for professionalism with lab stations from Hertz Furniture.
Depending on the arrangement of your space and the sizes of classes, you can choose from a selection of two- and four-student workstations. Both of these setups are conducive to working with lab partners. The four-student arrangement provides the additional possibility of working in a larger group of four when supplies are limited or the experiment requires larger groups to work together. Two-student models are forward facing, which is conducive to frontal instruction and demonstrations as well as independent experimentation. The four-student option comes in a number of arrangements including forward-facing and octagonal.
The configuration of laboratory workstations varies as well. Freestanding islands can fit anywhere in the classroom. They are a great option if you have a large open space because they make it easy for students to observe their own experiments from all angles. Perimeter workstations utilize wall space so the middle of the room is more open. To fit the maximum amount of workstations in your science lab, you may choose a combination of freestanding and perimeter units.
A critical feature of any counter or table in a science lab is the work surface material. Because experiments involving chemicals and heat are constantly being conducted, it is essential that the surface and sink material will not become easily damaged by extreme conditions. Heat- and chemical-resistant tops come in varying degrees of strength, so it is important to pay close attention to which materials are available when making a purchase for your science lab.
Built-in storage is a great extra feature to have in your lab workstations. Each unit can be kept fully-stocked to ensure that every pair of lab partners can find what they need for experiments. Storage comes in a number of different styles including book boxes, drawers and cabinets. Cabinets are good for larger items such as microscopes, while drawers are helpful for organizing smaller accessories such as pipettes and tweezers.
There are many extra pieces of lab furniture that can greatly enhance the experience of both teachers and students. Mobile demonstration centers can be moved around the room to ensure that all students have a good view, no matter where they are sitting or standing. They enable instructors to model correct experimentation methods while providing instructions or explanations using the attached whiteboard.
Mobile fume hoods offer an additional option for experiment demonstration. They enable students to observe physical changes while remaining protected from fumes and chemicals. They can be transported around the room to ensure that everyone gets a good view, or moved between different science labs as needed.
There are a number of additional pieces that can enhance lab safety and organization. Shower and eyewash stations are readily available for use in the unlikely event that they are needed. It is essential to furnish your lab with these pieces in order to ensure that students are properly protected at all times. We also have lab cleanup sinks which provide an extra space for students to wash up and clean experiment tools at the end of class.
