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

Flip top tables from stock

With the ever increasing pressure on businesses to make the best use of their office space, we are more often than not specifying flip top tables as the ideal solution for most training and meeting room requirements.

These tables have the advantage of being easily reconfigurable in minutes and the job can be carried out by anyone in the office.

Their clever design means that the weight of the table does not have to be lifted during the reconfiguration.
Once in their new layout, the castors can be locked and the meeting table tops fixed to each other with an easy to use locking bracket or hand wheel.

Movable office meeting rooms.

These days the office buzzword is flexibility. Hot desking, break out areas, mobile pedestal garages, flip top and folding tables, are all words most modern businesses understand. They mean adaptable work environments, which can change to suit what’s needed next week, not next year.

We have come a long way since offering mobile pedestals as a flexible alternative to fixed pedestals, Moving the pedestal out from under the desk gives you more room if you are training someone for example, or provides a handy additional temporary worktop when sorting or researching old files.

Meeting room furniture has also come a long way since the big heavy boardroom table.  Lightweight flip top tables on lockable castors make light work of reconfiguring meeting rooms in minutes, and can be done by any member of staff.

Folding and stackable chairs , along with meeting furniture trolleys make it quick and easy to clear rooms for buffets, or fill them with chairs for seminars.

Clever meeting tables

Most businesses nowadays have to make the best use of all of their office workspace.
Desks are getting smaller, although flat computer screens  mean that this is not such a problem, and people are sitting much closer together.  But clever design and the provision of a break out and relaxation areas for the staff can actually improve working conditions.

The same applies to meeting areas, which have undergone a radical change in the last fifteen years.  No longer do we see large offices filled with one expensive veneer boardroom table and equally expensive meeting chairs.

This office space is just to valuable to be left for the occasional use of senior board members and shareholders.

Instead these areas are being partitioned into smaller yet highly efficient meeting rooms.
These rooms are used on an almost continual basis with staff members booking in their time to use the space, whether for a formal meeting with clients, a general chat with colleagues about a specific project, or just somewhere quiet to work for a brief period.

Meeting tables for smaller offices

Over the years we have seen training and meeting rooms getting smaller and smaller.
The need to fit more people in and have more meeting rooms, has meant that offices are constantly being reconfigured to meet these demands.

Which is why we have added to our range of meeting tables which are available from stock, a smaller version of our popular and well priced barrel shaped meeting table.

This new table looks exactly like its bigger brother, but is slightly shorter at  two metres long and only one metre wide ( at its widest point) .

The flat ends of the table are eighty centimetres, which is also slightly less than its bigger brother.

And, provided you are careful about which meeting chairs you choose, this table can still seat up to 8 persons.

A Buyers Guide to Folding and Flip-Top Tables

Folding and Flip Top Tables
Folding and Flip Top Tables

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.

Linking kits and storage/transport trolleys are usually available for all of these types of table, please make sure that you enquire and that you are aware of the prices – storage trolleys can be quite expensive in relation to the tables themselves.
