Modular workshop furniture: what's the best solution?

Modular workshop furniture: what's the best solution?

Modular workshop furniture has the advantage of optimising space and allowing for extreme customisation of the installation. But where to start when choosing the number and types of units most suitable for your workshop? We can help you get started, with the first criterion being the specific area where the units will be installed.

To set up the space in a workshop, the best solution is modular furniture designed on a case by case basis for the specific layout of your spaces. Designing the modular workshop furniture is the most important step: a layout is created that takes best advantage of all the available space, with an intelligent furniture arrangement.

Nevertheless, for each section of the workshop – diagnostics, mechanical, assembly/dismantling – there are certain units that you cannot do without: this is why the first factor to consider when planning the modular furniture is the main functions of the units.

Here we are proposing 3 examples of modular workshop furniture, distinguished by the work area they are destined for.

Mechanical area

If the furniture is to be installed in the mechanical area, it could include:

  • 1 large worktop which also acts as a support surface for various items;
  • 1 unit with hinged door to integrate a column, or for example, a console for an elevator crane;
  • 1 trolley for storing the most commonly used tools and equipment, where they are always handy;
  • 1 fluid distribution unit for housing new and used spools of oil, water, air and so forth.

Diagnostics area

The most suitable modular workshop furniture for the diagnostics area is composed of at least:

  • 1 indispensable worktop for setting up diagnostic equipment;
  • 1 fixed drawer unit with high capacity drawers able to support heavy loads, over 30 kg;
  • Several units with hinged doors and sliding doors that save space when open, also suitable for PC work stations;
  • 1 shelf unit for storing files, tool boxes, cartons, sprays, as well as monitors and paper holders.

Assembly/dismantling area

Modular workshop furniture is also ideal in a body shop. The work area dedicated to dismantling and reassembling vehicles should ideally include:

  • 1 work bench with an intermediate shelf for supporting parts;
  • 1 trolley drawer unit with lock to keep the contents secure;
  • 1 drawer unit with 5 drawers for storing tools and equipment.
