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. With over five hundred glass bottles to store we needed to ensure the bottles’ labels were easily visible so the contents could be quickly identified. Space was at a premium and expensive breakages needed to be eliminated.


Every furniture unit is manufactured by APMG’s time-served craftsmen at its factory in Greater Manchester. Our designers enjoy the challenge of developing new laboratory storage for our skilled production team to bring to life.

Drawing on their combined manufacture experience and the expertise of the in-house plastic fabrication department, APMG’s designers created an innovative, space-saving drawer system to house the bottles.

The drawers were manufactured at an angle to allow the stepped plastic inners 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 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.
