Mobile Unit Systems

Mobile Unit Systems in Labs

Lab UK's mobile unit systems are manufactured, by us in our factory in Manchester, to create a flexible storage option within fixed benching and metalwork.

Using our expertise we will design your laboratory furniture with its intended purpose in mind at every stage of the planning. Dependant upon its intended use, Our mobile cabinet systems will be manufactured from 2 types of metalwork frame. 'H' frames would be used if the worktop benches would need to withstand heavy objects or equipment. There is also the option of using C frame metalwork as with suspended unit systems.

The units can be made with several options such as single mobile units, double mobile units as well as being mobile drawer units or mobile drawer line units in also single and double size.

The main advantage of movable furniture is that with your furniture on castors can move to where ever you need it to be. If required, the castors can have locks on the wheels to make static units should you need it.

As well as unit systems, Lab UK also manufactures mobile table frames that can include storage units. The picture at the bottom of the page is an example of the type of mobile table with storage we supply.

Our standard specification is as below. This can be modified to suit your needs. We can also offer lockable storage units if required.
