Top 5 factors important to know before designing your lab

  1. Understand your needs: The first step in designing your lab furniture is to understand your specific needs. Consider the type of research or experiments that will be conducted in the lab, the number of people using the space, and the equipment that will be housed. This will help you determine the size, layout, and type of furniture required for your lab.
  2. Safety and functionality: Safety should always be a top priority when designing a lab. The furniture should be designed to meet the safety standards and regulations set by the industry. The laboratory furniture should also be functional, providing easy access to equipment and supplies, and allowing for efficient workflow.
  3. Durability and maintenance: Lab furniture is an important investment, and it is essential to choose lab work tops that are durable and can withstand the sensitive environment of a lab that usually includes chemicals and needs chemical safety cabinets. Furniture made from high-quality materials will last longer and require less maintenance, saving you time and money in the long run.
  4. Work Environment: Lab technicians often spend long hours working at their lab benches, making it crucial to consider the work environment when designing lab furniture. Furniture should be adjustable to suit different heights and positions, reducing the risk of strain and injury.
  5. Customization: Every lab has its unique requirements, and generic furniture may not always meet them. That’s why it is essential to work with Hoffen Laboratory Furniture Company which offers customization options for lab furniture starting from lab work tops to the Fume Hood lab solutions.
