Modular Laboratory Furniture Options

Modular Lab Furniture

Constantly changing lab technology and research subjects require laboratories to adapt to rapid industry changes. Lab architects typically seek out modular lab furniture since they can adapt, move, and reconfigure. Aside from that, modular lab furniture is preferred due to its ability to be customized and relocated. Modular furniture is also more cost-effective than casework as the project scope expands. Contact a Formaspace Design Consultant to compare prices between casework and modular lab furniture.

Mobile Lab Islands

Mobile lab islands give you flexibility and additional work surface when needed. Islands can also be used for additional storage space with built-in lower cabinets. The standard load capacity is 1000 lbs., but depending on load requirements, the steel and casters can be upgraded by request. Mobile lab islands are perfect for multiple shift operations and higher education laboratories. Contact a Formaspace Design Consultant today for your custom-made laboratory island tables.
