Heavy Industrial


Galvanized Steel Work Surface for heavy duty work benches

Galvanized Steel

Galvanized steel is tough and lower cost than most other metal surfaces, making it ideal for use in heavy-duty industrial or production applications. Galvanized steel is coated in zinc, so it won't corrode unless the zinc plating is worn off by heavy abrasive use. Galvanized steel can also be used in office or other settings where customers desire a heavy-duty industrial appearance.

Advantages:

  • Low cost compared to other metal surfaces
  • High durability
  • Unique appearance
High Density Polyethylene Work Surface

High Density Polyethylene

Despite it's tough sounding name, high density polyethylene (HDPE) is soft compared to other surface materials. That makes it great for working on soft or delicate products which may scratch against harder surfaces. HDPE is often used in laboratory environments due to its lack of porosity and resistance to many solvents.

Advantages:

  • Very soft
  • Nonabsorbent
  • Resistant to many solvents
  • Economical alternative to other specialty surfaces
