Fixed System Units

Fixed System Units in Labs

We manufacture as educational furniture and lab furniture within any industry.


Our fixed unit systems can be made with either single or double units. These units can be cupboards or have drawers incorporated within them. They offer the stability of the fixed bench worktops which are supported by the storage cabinets. This provides an ideal platform for weighty equipment.


Maximum storage and working areas are achieved by tailored units strategically located knee hole spaces for working desks. Furthermore, the benchtop and cabinet depths are variable in perimeter, island or peninsula layout.

Service lines are catered for in the voids behind the storage cabinet, protected but easily accessible by removable back panels. Alternatively, service spines and trunking a variety of designs offer adequate access to worksurfaces as well as isolation of potential hazards.

Services can also be added to this type of system. We offer sinks, sink and drainers and electric outlets. Locks can also be added to the units to make cabinets more secure.

Our standard specification for all our cabinets is below. However as all our storage units are manufactured by us in our factory in Manchester, we will work alongside our customers to meet your specifactions.
