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.

Sound absorbing desk top screens

We get lots of calls from customers who would like to improve the sound quality in their

offices. Too many times we have heard that the noise from a colleague when they are on the phone is very distracting and they would like to resolve this problem.

Well, CH Workspace do sell proper acoustic screens which will do the job but it’s not as simple as that.  The difference in price between a basic cloth upholstered screen, and a sound absorbing screen is significant. At least double would be a good estimation in most cases.

This is because a basic office screen is, in simple terms, a board with fabric over it. The board is solid and has a couple of holes drilled into the base, into which the screen clamps fit.

If you order a pinnable screen, then the board is a soft fibreboard into which pins can be pushed.

New brochure for CHWorkspace

CHWorkspace is  very pleased to announce that our new brochure, the 2012 edition, has just come off the press and we are distributing copies to our valued customers.

If for some reason we have missed you, then please get in touch and we will post you a copy by return.

The 2012 brochure is mainly a consolidation of the existing ranges, although it has to be said that there are at least 10 new ranges of office furniture which have been added to our portfolio.

In addition we have increased our number of stocked ranges of meeting and training tables, along with some very interesting boardroom tables.

We intend to publish these changes and the new additions in greater detail in due course but overall we are very pleased with the design, feel and usability of the new catalogue.

One of the main changes which you will immediately notice is that the prices and technical description of each product is now incorporated into the main brochure. This is how it used to be, but we changed a few years ago and had a separate technical data and price list.   Most of our customers have commented that this was not an improvement so we have gone back to what suits our customers best.

All of the other benefits which we have always offered are still there though. Competitive pricing, free space planning, fast delivery, comprehensive range of products to suit all offices and businesses.

Despite the continuing recession and general decline in business, we are still looking after our existing customers and indeed attracting quite a number of new customers.

We feel that our new brochure reflects the current market, in that in general the product range is geared to more everyday office furniture requirements, rather than exclusive boardrooms or executive office suites.

Having said that, most of the products which were in our old brochure are still available from stock, if you were looking for something a little bit special then you can still use the old brochure or if you do not have one, let us know and we can send you one.  We also have the brochure available in PDF version and are working on an on line “flip page” version which you can view on your PC, or even your PDA or smartphone, if you are that inclined.

So thanks to all our existing customers for the continued support and we hope to offer you the same high quality profession service we have always offered.

And we look forward to offering our new customers the same service

Office Furniture Design

Over the last 20 years there have been big changes in the general design of office furniture and office desks in particular.  
For many years before this not a lot had changed. Technology had improved the design and finish of office furniture, and costs had reduced, mainly due to the larger number of office desks which were needed.

But in the main the office desk was essentially a rectangular work surface, supported by 4 legs and with some under desk storage attached.
Before the advent of computers, there was very little need for anything more than this.  A secretary could join a return desk to her main desk, so that she had somewhere to put her typewriter, and an executive could join two rectangular desks together using a quadrant section, to produce a really big double desk layout.

And even when computers started appearing, for a few years not a lot changed, except that now in the office was a dedicated computer workstation, to which people went to use the computer when required.  You have to remember that at this time Personal Computers were so expensive that they were not really personal, but shared between a department or section.

Pure office furniture

Pure is  new range of office desks which we now hold in stock for immediate dispatch.

It compliments our other ranges of office desks by being elegant, simple and stylish.

The tapered leg frames, which are available in a cool white finish as well as the standard aluminium finish, add style to any office , at a price which is comparable to many budget office desking ranges.

The Pure office furniture range is available with a variety of top finishes, from  a dark cinnamon walnut to snow white, to match the desk frames.

There is even a height adjustable frame option in the Pure range, which caters for tall staff.

In addition to the rectangular and radial desks offered in this range, there are also meeting ends, meeting tables, and even a barrel shaped boardroom table.  Our standard range of desk high and under desk mobile pedestals also compliments this range, especially as we now have white finished mobile pedestals as a standard stocked furniture product.

The Pure office desk frame is certainly a break from the traditional look of office desks, and would not look out of place in a designer home or office, especially when finished in white.
As our photographs show, Pure is aptly named, as the desk exudes pure style as well as pure function. Clean lines, no clutter, and a beautifully designed leg base, adds a level of quality and sophistication not often found at this pricing level.

With over 15 shapes and sizes of desk, Pure can solve your small office or study needs, especially when you consider the thousands off complimentary products which are available in our main office  furniture brochure.

As with all of our desking ranges  the whole of the Pure range is available on our Cad system in 2 and 3D format, enabling us to produce stunning 3 D renditions of your new workspace using the Pure Office Furniture range.

So please call us today, and you new Pure furniture could be with you by the weekend

Cable management for your office furniture


Most businesses, when budgeting for their new office furniture, don’t always allow an amount to cover any additional cable management requirements which they may have.
Most office desks will have some form of cable management, although on some of the budget office desks, the facilities will be somewhat limited.
So you should spend some time to work out exactly how your new office desks will be used, and what level of cable management you will require.  Different styles of desk need different forms of cable management so it is important to get it right before deciding on they style of desk you like.
Also you need to look at you current office wiring, as perimeter cabling and  floor boxes need different cable management systems.

Getting rid of your old office furniture

Nowadays it is getting more and more difficult to get rid of your old or unwanted office furniture.  Transport, storage and labour costs means that second hand office furniture dealers are less likely to want your old furniture.

Charities have the same problem as well as being restricted by the ever tightening Health and Safety regulations.

Even taking the furniture to the local dump is more difficult nowadays. The charge for commercial waste  seems to escalate geometrically and the limitations on what can be accepted as non hazardous waste makes this method of disposal a very expensive option.
