Laboratory workbench: specific solutions by DEA

Laboratory workbench: specific solutions by DEA

A laboratory workbench must meet specific needs and meet certain requirements, partially different from those of a normal industrial bench. Let's find out which with a rundown on specific DEA solutions.

A laboratory workbench, especially in an electronic laboratory, differs from an industrial workbench in some respects: for example, it must comply with specific sector regulations and must have special functions, such as PC workstations, monitor holder or accessory holder.

Let's take a closer look at how a laboratory workbench should be made, and then discover the DEA proposal for this type of work environment.

Laboratory workbench: here is how it should be

The laboratory workbench (electronic, chemical, etc.) must first of all comply with sector regulations, such as UNI and DIN, which establish dimensions, minimum safety requirements (ergonomics, resistance, stability) and test methods (resistance to weights, blows, mechanical stress, etc.)

In addition to the legal requirements, practicality and efficiency are also essential. In this sense, the laboratory workbench must be:

  • built according to concepts of modularity, rationality and ergonomics
  • versatile, in order to easily integrate all the necessary equipment
  • modular according to needs
  • equipped with accessories, such as electrical devices, accessory holder, material holder, PC station, monitor holder, etc.
  • equipped with raceways for cables, so as to distribute power lines in a protected and hidden position, integrated inside the bench.

Specific modules for an electronic laboratory workbench

The DEA range of modular furnishings includes many and various units ideal for setting up a workbench. All module components are painted with epoxy powder, and most of the modules have pre-cuts on the top and back, which can be easily opened during installation, to allow the passage of cables and pipes.

In addition to the actual benches, the workbench can also be equipped with:

  • industrial drawer units made of fully welded sheet metal. They are designed with special attention to drawer capacity (with total extraction, with HD guides they tolerate from 70 to 400 kg) and to operator safety (anti-tipping system with the opening of only one drawer at a time).

AR-178.10: drawer unit with 12 full extension drawers, mounted on HD runners with capacity of 100 kg each; lock system; adjustable feet.


  • trolley modules with PC station
  • wall modules with TV or monitor support set-up

AR-110.03: module with powered shutter, adjustable shelf and rear brush for monitor installation (4 universal holes)


  • modules for fluid and energy distribution
  • waste collection modules

AR-267.11: ecological module with drawer mounted on HD guides, double removable container and two drawers with removable container
