Astro Arche Bench desk range

CH Workspace are pleased to be able to offer yet another cost effective bench desk range, which is available from stock for delivery in a matter of days.
Although this range is primarily designed as a bench desk system, where intermediate legs are used to support two desk tops, and are set back underneath the desk, standard rectangular and radial desks are also available from stock.

The desk tops are available in beech, cherry, maple, wenge, white and light grey and there is a choice of aluminium, graphite grey or white for the framework. This range is one of our best selling contract bench desk ranges and consequently the pricing is very competitive.

Ganton and Walton desks available tomorrow

Although a large amount of our office furniture is available in 5 to 7 days we are still often asked for next day solutions from desperate customers who have left things to the last minute

So, since the beginning of June we have implemented an immediate shipment programme  called our “Express Office Line” and have produced a mini brochure to back it up.

The products in the brochure are held in stock in the Midlands, which means that we can literally deliver and install the office  furniture the next day, if required.

The two main desking ranges, Ganton and Walton, are both available in beech, white, oak, birch, walnut and olive finishes, in a variety of shapes and sizes from the standard rectangular desk to radial,  and even bow fronted executive desks.

A Buyers Guide to Budget Executive Office Furniture

CH Workspace has a number of budget executive furniture ranges which are held in stock and can be delivered and installed in as little as five working days. Our budget executive furniture ranges are all top quality, designer furniture pieces which are built to last but which are also amazing value for money. The reason why they are such good value is that they are made from melamine-faced board rather than real wood veneer. MFC is used in most business furniture these days and is barely distinguishable from the real thing. In fact, in some situations MFC is actually better than veneer, since it is much more resistant to scratching, hot coffee cups etc and is maintenance free.

A Buyers Guide to Budget Office Furniture

As you are probably aware, the office furniture market is very competitive and, like most highly competitive markets, a lot of competition focuses on price. You often see headlines on web sites and catalogues saying “60% off”, “half price” etc. Unlike the retail market, where there is more regulation, the business to business market is free to do pretty much what it likes.

Office furniture and how to pay for it

Deciding on which range of office furniture to buy can be daunting, as there is such a variety to choose from, and it is difficult to find the ideal balance between price and quality.

Cheap desks and chairs may seem a good idea now, but you may regret it quite soon, when drawers start falling apart or chair mechanisms become unreliable. Sure you have a guarantee, but you still have to wait for an engineer to turn up, and then he will invariably have to order some spare parts, meaning more delay and inconvenience.

So you decide to go for better quality desks and really comfortable chairs, as you understand the importance of looking after your staff, but the total cost is a lot more that your budget.

Not wanting to tie up valuable capital (especially in the current economic climate) you need to consider how to you are going to treat your investment.

Vegas telescopic desks

An unusual feature of the Vegas range of office furniture is that the central support beam is telecopic and adjusts to fit all standard sizes of desk top.

This has great advantages for a manufacturer and stock holder, in that only one type of frame needs to be stocked for the whole desking range. This makes is cheaper for them and they can pass this saving on to the customers.

This is reflected in the price of this range, with basic rectangular desks costing as little as £180, and this is for a fully welded steel framed desk with 25mm tops.

All of the desks in this range have a telescopic beam, which, once fixed at the desired length, then doubles up as the horizontal wire management tray.

The leg frames also have removable covers which allow the cables to be completely hidden away inside, from  the point they enter into the bottom of the leg-frame, to when they reappear on the desk-top.

The main leg section is constructed from folded and welded steel panels, and is  bolted to a stylish arched foot complete with floor level adjusters.

The desk tops are 25mm thick with 2mm protective edging, and this rests on two sturdy cantilevered steel brackets

Another unique feature of this desking range, is that the standard desk frame can be extended to support two desk tops, allowing the same framework to be used as the base for large meeting or training tables, or even a bench desking system.

Once again, one less leg frames means savings for the end user.

The telescopic central beam also has additional advantages when changes have to be made to your office space. If you need a bigger or smaller desk, you just need to specify the size you require, knowing that the frame you already have can be easily adjusted to fit.

Combine this with the fact that the leg frames can also be specified as height adjustable for a very small additional cost, and you really have got a desking system which is virtually future-proof.

All standard desk tops and cantilever support brackets are double drilled, so that the desks can be made into stand alone units or linked together, with shared legs, to produce efficient groups of desks.

The range of finishes are identical to all of our stocked ranges of office furniture. A choice of aluminium or graphite for the steel frames, and either light grey, beech, cherry, or pear finish for the desk tops.

Apart from the main desks, which are available in rectangular, wave, radial , and even large symmetrical radial shapes, there is also a wide choice of matching storage units available, including steel and wood finish desk height and mobile pedestals, tambour units and 2 door cupboards.

Individual meeting tables or meeting extensions are also available as are modesty panels, CPU holders , desk shelves and office screens, and all of the other complimentary items which you would expect from a versatile range such as Vegas

Vegas offers a wide range of products, amazing versatility, and real value for money.
