Many people, when buying office desks, just look for something they like, and which is within their budget, without thinking how important cable management can be.
In the brochures, on line or even in the showroom the desks look great – clutterfree, with just one laptop sitting on the desk. Most of the time the lap laptop doesn’t even have a power cable attached.
There are people out there who really can just use a laptop on their desk, without having to plus anything in. The battery is fully charged, the wireless internet and printer is working fine, and they don’t need a larger screen, but in our experience there are not many people like this.
More often than not the laptop battery is nearly dead, as is their mobile battery, and as anyone who uses the same desk for a long period of time each week will agree, eventually the small keyboard and screen on the laptop means that full sized versions are soon required, and then power will be required.
Over the last 12 months we have seen an explosion in customers wanting to have their office desk tops finished in white, and also expressing a preference to have white desk frames as well.
Luckily most office furniture manufacturers have risen to the challenge of this new finish and have added white to their standard options list.
We stock a number of ranges of office furniture which are available in a white finish, from stock, with a white desk frame option available at no additional cost.
These requests for white desks and accessories seems to have originated in the domestic furniture and kitchen market, where white has become exceedingly and increasingly popular.
More and more architects and house builders have been incorporating white finishes into their new designs and consumers have wanted to continue their theme through their home furniture and then through to their office desks and storage units.
As with all things in life with office furniture you really do get what you pay for.
Cheap desks are cheap for many reasons, but primarily because they lack the functionality of more expensive desks. This may be fine if you just want a flat surface upon which to work but nowadays cable management is an essential requirement of even the most basic workstation and it is this capability which is missing on cheaper desks.
So by the time you have purchased an under desk cable tray , and drilled some holes for cable ports into your desk top, you might as well have purchased a more expensive office desk, which already had these items incorporated into the design.
Many of the more expensive office furniture ranges have been designed very carefully to ensure that professional users get everything they require from their furniture. The desks are very well built, designed to easily surpass their five year warranty. They have full and integral cable management systems from floor to desk top.
Most office furniture manufacturers are offering their own version of a bench desking system, ranging from a simple linked desk design to a high end all singing and dancing cable managed, sliding top affair.
But in general the main similarity is that the desks are designed as double desk ( two desk facing each other) setups which can share their end legs with neighbouring desks.
This offers two advantages in terms of price and space as not so many legs are needed when compared to a free standing desk setup.
“OPEN” is a budget range of office furniture which offers everything that a basic bench desk range would offer and a little more.
The desks sizes are comprehensive, as you would expect (80 cm, 120 cm, 140 cm, 160 cm and 180 cm) the systems comes with integral cable management, and the desk frame has been designed to accept a wide variety of central dividing desk mounted screens.
CH Workspace are proud to add to their comprehensive range of office furniture products, and exciting new range called “Pure”.
Very minimalistic and stylish tubular legs make this range stand out from the average office desk. The simple but incredibly stable leg frames are kept upright by a steel welded beam which also hold the cable management systems.
This simplicity of design gives this range a clean uncluttered look: All that is there is all that needs to be there.
And to highlight this simplicity this desk frame is finished in a pure white powder coating for maximum effect, although there is a silver finish option if you are looking for a something even more state of the art.
As a major office furniture dealer, CH Workspace can supply a wide range of folding and flip top tables. Before you start, you need to consider the type of table you need.
Folding tables generally have legs that fold together under the table top, although there are exceptions to this rule as we will see later.
Flip-top tables have legs that stay upright, but a table top that flips from the horizontal to the vertical position.
Both flip-top tables and folding tables are generally modular in design, so that a group of tables can be pushed together to form a larger unit, including half-moon and curved units for table ends etc. Because they are designed to be mobile, most folding and flip-top tables have wheels or castors to enable them to be moved easily.
A recent innovation in office furniture has been the bench desk system. This can be the most cost effective and efficient system for a workgroup or call-centre. As the name implies, individual desks are replaced by a
