School Prep Rooms
A well-designed school prep room enables materials and equipment to be quickly and safely prepared and distributed, allowing staff to get the most out of teaching time. It’s the hub of any science department and yet in our experience it’s often tight for space. APMG’s designers have accepted the challenge of using every last centimetre to maximise storage and work areas in prep rooms time and again. If you need smart solutions speak to us – we have the team to deliver them.
We understand the zoning required to ensure your school prep room is fit for purpose and easy to use. We have the furniture design and manufacture capabilities to optimise each area.
All our secure chemical storage cupboards, chemical resistant benching for chemicals preparation and dispensing, shelving, racking and fixed and mobile cupboards are manufactured in our own factories in Greater Manchester. This gives us the freedom to design to special size requirements. Whatever dimensions and configuration you want, just ask us and our designers and time-served craftsmen will ensure your prep room is as perfect for your needs as possible.
For school prep rooms the CLEAPSS G9 guidance advises a fume cupboard width of 1500mm to accommodate the sink. However, we understand the practicalities of prep room design. Due to the limited space in many prep rooms a compromise of 1200mm is acceptable which still allows sufficient working space. APMG manufactures its fixed ducted fume cupboards to be compliant to CLEAPSS G9 and they have been type-tested to BS EN 14175 for use in prep rooms.
We love a challenge – contact us to discuss your ideal prep room.
