Bespoke Laboratory Storage Solves Broken Bottle Problem

APMG’s design team came up with the perfect solution for a client seeking a tailored laboratory storage system. The client had over five hundred glass bottles to store. In addition, the bottles’ labels had to be easily visible so the contents could be quickly identified. Space was at a premium and expensive breakages needed to be eliminated. Our team relished the opportunity to create a storage solution that not only protected the bottles, but also showcased our design and manufacture capabilities.


Bespoke Laboratory Storage Systems

Our designers enjoy the challenge of developing new laboratory storage for our skilled production team to bring to life. Every furniture unit is manufactured by APMG’s time-served craftsmen at its factory in Greater Manchester. The APMG teams work together to deliver tailored, smart, cost effective lab storage solutions at affordable prices.

On this occasion, APMG’s designers created an innovative, space-saving drawer system to house the client’s bottles. They drew on their combined manufacturing experience and the expertise of the in-house plastic fabrication department.

To save on space, the drawers were manufactured at an angle. This also allowed the stepped plastic inners our fabricators had made to slot neatly inside.

Rails were inserted to keep the bottles upright and safe and to stop breakages from occurring. This also keeps the bottles neat and tidy and ensures every label is on display for at-a-glance location of the required item. The drawer inners are precisely sized to accommodate the bottles, and the drawers are meticulously designed to withstand the weight load.

The result: another client delighted with an ergonomic, time-saving and cost-effective solution courtesy of APMG’s creative and efficient team. Find out how we can meet your design challenge – contact us today!
