Hertz Furniture makes it easy to outfit a school science lab with affordable lab tables. We offer a variety of science lab tables with chemically resistant, easy to clean surfaces. We carry a selection of both fixed-height and adjustable-height units. All of our units are designed to outlast, even with heavy daily use, and are easy to clean and maintain. Hertz Furniture’s extended warranty guarantees your students many years of experimentation and hands-on learning.
When choosing a science lab table, it is important to pay attention to the surface material. Because harsh materials are used for experiments, a lab must be furnished with furniture that is specifically designed for these purposes. Unlike regular tables, Hertz’s Furniture’s science tables are designed with hands-on experiments in mind, so they won’t get damaged by chemicals. We have lab tables in a variety of sizes, with three different surface materials, so you can choose the combination of features that suits young scientists.
Lab table selection should be based on a number of factors. Firstly, the kinds of experiments that they are needed for must be considered. There are a number of work surface materials that are appropriate for science classrooms, but the optimal choice depends on the nature of your experiments. All of the models offered by Hertz feature basic chemical resistance, but they differ in their resistance to heat and harsher chemicals. While the price of a less resistant table might seem appealing, it is important to purchase tables with a surface that is appropriate for the experimentation that takes place in your science lab.
The most basic lab tables have Chem-Res tops. These surfaces resist most chemicals and stains, but their resistance to high temperatures and severe chemicals is limited. Therefore, Chem-res science lab tables are a good choice for science classrooms which don’t use extreme heat or severe chemicals.
For a science lab that hosts experiments with more severe chemicals, Trespa TopLab Plus solid phenolic work surfaces are a great option. This surface material is highly impervious to normal laboratory heat and moisture as well as most chemicals, acids and stains. However, its resistance to heat is limited.
Solid epoxy resin tops provide maximum durability. Lab tables with solid epoxy resin tops are resistant to virtually anything young scientists can throw at or spill on them. They are completely impenetrable to most chemicals and acids as well as normal laboratory heat and moisture. They show no effects when subjected to the following chemicals: Hydrochloric Acid 20%, Sulfuric Acid 60%, Methyl Alcohol, Nitric Acid 70%, Benzene, Toluene and many more.
In addition to selecting an appropriate work surface material for lab tables, size should also be considered. Depending on your student population and laboratory layout, you may prefer to have more smaller tables or fewer tables that are larger. Hertz features a wide selection of table sizes in ChemRes, Trespa TopLab Plus and solid epoxy resin as well.
Lab tables with adjustable-height legs are the best option for ADA compliance. Adjustable-height tables accommodate students of different heights as well. They are also an excellent choice for physics labs, as legs can be adjusted separately to create a built-in incline.
When conducting experiments, it’s important to make sure that work surfaces are clean. Clean work surfaces ensure maximum safety and prevent damage to personal belongings. Bookboxes provide an excellent space for school materials that are not needed during experiments, so work surfaces can stay free of clutter. Many of our science lab tables feature built-in book compartments so students can safely store their notebooks and school supplies, while keeping them on hand if needed.
Most lab tables feature protective rubber glides which prevent chemical damage to legs. Tables with Chem-Res tops feature adjustable glides. Solid epoxy resin and TopLab Plus tables have non-adjustable glides.
With so many features to keep in mind, it can be dizzying to think about selecting lab tables. At Hertz Furniture, we are here to help you select which of our top-quality models is right for your space and purposes. With such a wide selection of lab tables, you are sure to find the perfect combination of size, surface material and features for your school.

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.
