laboratory furniture Today's laboratories are designed to provide scientists with a functional, flexible, and safe space, and modern laboratory furniture reflects that requirement.  There is such a wide variety of laboratory furniture available that contemporary labs can be easily customized to suit their specific needs.

Laboratory furniture consists of casework, countertops, fume hoods, and varied accessories such as lighting, storage shelves, and racks.  Ideally, lab furniture should be functional, comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing.

Casework is one of the most important considerations to take into account when furnishing your lab.  What is casework?  In a nutshell, casework refers to built-in or modular cabinets, including base cabinets, wall cabinets, and storage and supply cabinets.  Depending upon the use of the lab, casework can be made out of wood, metal, or laminate.  Modular casework has become very popular, as it allows the lab to be reconfigured or redesigned if necessary.

Countertops are necessary as a work surface; they are available in plastic laminate, stainless steel, and natural stone construction.  Heat and chemical resistant work surfaces are often made from epoxy or phenolic resin materials.

Fume hoods are necessary for safety in labs that produce chemical vapors or noxious fumes, and also can prevent injury in case of fire or explosion.  Modern fume hoods are usually equipped with a mechanism that tells the scientist it is working correctly.

Sinks, faucets, and service fittings complete the outfitting of the modern lab.  Depending on the laboratory's intended usage, accessories such as mobile carts and seating, safety and test equipment, and various racks and storage units, may also be required.
