High Quality

Lab Tables

APMG design and manufactures high-quality lab desks and lab tables for use in industrial laboratories and school classrooms.

Lab Desks

Our tough H-frame lab tables and lab desks are ideal for use in both commercial and education settings. These hard-wearing lab tables and lab desks can be used on their own, and in conjunction with APMG pedestal and cantilever furniture systems, to optimise the flexibility and efficiency of your labs, classrooms and write-up areas.

We manufacture high-quality lab furniture, all our steelwork, powder coating and CNC machining is done in-house by skilled craftspeople. Therefore, we can supply almost any specification, shape, colour, size and height of the lab desk and lab table. If you can draw it, we can make it. And if you can’t draw it, our expert designers can. 

Mobile or Static Lab Tables and Desks

There is the option to have static or mobile lab tables and lab desks. 

Our static lab tables can be supplied with levelling feet to deal with uneven floors.

The mobile units have a choice of heavy duty lockable castors. We can guide you to the appropriate type, depending on application and anticipated load-bearing requirements. The units can also be supplied with Footmaster self-levelling castors for added security. 

Laboratory Tables Built to Last

Our steelwork for laboratory tables is fabricated on-site by professional, time served welders. For a standard lab desk we use 38mm x 38mm ERW 16 SWG steel box sections.

The crossbar can be positioned centrally, or towards the back of the table, or designed out completely, depending on your requirements. 

Lab Table Worktops

Choosing a worktop material that’s suitable for your application is vital. We recommend Trespa® solid grade laminate because it’s resilient and hard-wearing.

We can guide you to the correct worktop for your requirements, taking into account the need for stain or scratch and wear resistance. We look at the chemicals and the types of apparatus likely to be used, and match functionality with design and budget. See more about our worktops.

Our standard overhang for worktops is 20mm, although we can design to other dimensions. 

We can add in shelving under your lab table too – just tell us what you need.

Standard Lab Table and Desk Sizes

Our robust standard lab tables are ideal for both schools and commercial labs. They work perfectly around school science lab service pedestals and are tough enough to withstand research, analysis, and testing activities. Our standard sizes are 1200mm x 600mm and 1500 x 750mm – and every size in between!

School Lab Tables

Lab tables and desks allow flexibility in the classroom, with the option to reconfigure them to support different activities and teaching styles.

The APMG range of lab tables and desks for school science labs and art/crafts departments will typically have higher frames than standard tables and desks. Their sturdy construction ensures stability and strength. 

For Art and CDT tables we recommend a height of 850mm, to allow for the downward pressure often needed in these activities. Check out our art room furniture here.

To accommodate heavy equipment, the tables for DT classrooms will generally be constructed from thicker steel for a stronger load-bearing capability.

Adjustable Height Tables

Height adjustable furniture in laboratories and schools is a key part of ensuring every team member has equality of access and every student has the same learning opportunities. These rise and fall lab tables assist organisations to comply with the requirements of The Equality Act 2010.

In addition, they are helpful when working with large microscopes and apparatus.

APMG has a range of electric and manual winding lab tables, which are available in the standard sizes above and can also be made to bespoke dimensions.
