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.

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.
