Choosing the right workstations for your office can greatly improve the comfort and productivity of your workers.
In this article we look at a few features that you may want to consider when it is time to buy office workstations.
Types of Workstations
Multi functional workstations can be open pane for team work or closed pane for autonomous work. There are many good options for reconfigurable workstations that can be easily converted into executive meeting tables, dry bars and plan benches and other uses.
Office Workstations can also be customised to suit the office area you are looking to furnish as well as the number of workers you need to cater for. Parallel, one side and double side, curved, cubical and division systems (such as star shaped divided stations) are all available to help maximise workspace for employees in the office space available.
Depending on your work requirments your workstations can be customised with optional inserts including:
- Built in accessory panels for document organisation
- Optional modesty panels
- Whiteboard inserts if required in screens
- Shelf and paper tray inserts
- Desk mount wave top screens, full height screens or free standing screens
- Wire management for power and data
- Upholstered panels: colour and fabric of your choice with the option of a pin board surface, whiteboard surface or glass surface
- Adjustable leg systems
- Flat or rounded desk edges
A lot of workstation accessories can also be ordered as free standing units, such as whiteboards, blackboards, pin boards and storage units.
Weight and Strength
Well designed, modern workstations can be made to be very strong while still having a light frame. This can be very useful to your business if you are looking for some flexibility in your office fit out and may wish to move or redesign office layout occasionally.
A good warranty can cover the workstation frames for at least 5 years and sometimes more.
The GECA (Good Environmental Choice Australia) certifies certain products as eco friendly. These products come from sustainable forests and use natural dyes as part of the manufacturing process. Workstations that have been certified by GECA come from recycled materials and do not damage the environment.
Buying Australian Made
There are many excellent Australian made designs and models to choose from. As well as supporting the Australian economy there are other advantages for selecting a product that is made in Australia. In the event of any faults being found they can be repaired or replaced much faster.
