UNIVERSAL SCIENCE BENCH

Provides a larger facility with full laboratory and ICT option for any laboratory, classroom or lecture theatre. Larger in dimensions than the Mobile Science Bench it offers greater working surfaces and more storage. The height is ideal for Secondary & Tertiary students although the extra width means that it will require larger doorways for access to laboratories and rooms.

The Universal Science Bench is fitted with a laboratory-standard Trespa Athlon bench top with curved inset for ease of use. This material has excellent impact, scratch, heat, acid and chemical resistance. The USB is fitted with two pull out bench top extensions to maximise the useable workspace.

A mains power lead with multi socket outlet allows several devices e.g. computer, to be plugged in.

A low voltage supply, with switchable 2 – 12 Volts, acts as a standard power supply. It has standard 4mm lead sockets with DC output.

Gas is available via a double gas tap supplied through a standard 3.5/4.5 kg Butane cylinder and regulator. Note: institutions must supply their own gas cylinder and regulator because of Health & Safety legislation and the need for the initial cylinder deposit.

Water from a standard laboratory tap and Vulcathene sink is supplied via a clean water tank with a similar waste tank. These will require filling and emptying dependant on frequency of use. A secure computer shelf allows a desk top PC or laptop to located/stored within the USB. Cable slots provide easy access for cables between computer and monitor. A monitor arm is fitted as standard unless not requested.

Two screw sockets allow standard retort rods to be securely located on the bench surface.
Ample storage is provided via Gratnells trays. Trays are provided within the cost.
