Inclusive Laboratory Furniture

Adjustable Height Lab Tables

APMG height adjustable lab tables and lab desks are designed to support inclusivity within the workplace, laboratory, classroom, school lab or university lab.


Height-Adjustable Lab Furniture

Height-adjustable furniture in laboratories and schools is a key part of ensuring every team member has equal access and that every student has the same learning opportunities. Often referred to as DDA lab tables and DDA fume cupboards, they assist organisations in complying with the requirements of The Equality Act 2010, which replaced the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA).

These rise and fall units offer a cost-effective, disability-friendly lab layout. They are also useful when working with large microscopes and apparatus.

Height Adjustable Lab Tables & Desks

APMG’s height-adjustable tables and desks can be equipped with a full range of gas, electric and water services and sinks. For food tech classrooms we can incorporate hobs. We design and manufacture all our lab furniture in-house, so any bespoke requirements can also be easily accommodated.

The rise and fall worktops have a height range of between 650mm to 900mm. They can be either manually operated with a crank handle or electric powered, and the mechanism can be hidden behind panels if required.

The height-adjustable lab tables & desks can be supplied as fixed position units or moveable on lockable castors. APMG recommends tough, 18mm Trespa® TopLab® worksurfaces which are hard wearing and available in a range of colours. The table’s steelwork frame can be colour-matched to meet most specifications.

The standard sizes are 750mm deep by 1000 / 1200 / 1500mm wide, however, we can manufacture bespoke adjustable height tables, benches and desks.

Enhanced Access Fume Cupboards

APMG offers a safe, accessible fume cupboard designed to meet the needs of wheelchair users. The Enhanced Access Fume Cupboard includes an adjustable height working level and an automatic sash. Ask us for more information.

The Equality Act 2010 – Duty to make reasonable adjustments

The Equality Act took over from the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) in 2010. As well as supporting the rights of disabled people by giving greater legal protection against discrimination, it emphasises the legal duty of education providers, employers and service providers to make reasonable adjustments so disabled people can take part in education, use services, and work.

If an organisation does not fulfil its duty to make reasonable adjustments the Equality Act deems this unlawful discrimination, and a claim can be made.
