As Per CBSE Bye-laws, to get affiliation from the CBSE Board, the School must have a Composite Lab to conduct the Science experiments for Secondary Section.


4 Simple steps to follow to set up the composite lab

  1. Assigning of room
  2. Designing Lab furniture
  3. Installing the lab furniture
  4. Installing Lab Apparatus


  1. Assigning of Room: As Per CBSE bye-laws, the minimum size of the Composite Lab should be 600 Sqft. So, choose the room accordingly. 30 students can be accommodated with this size. If student strength is higher than 30, then a bigger room is needed. It is advised to select a room which has got good ventilation.


  1. Designing of the Lab: Designing the lab is the most important part. Please keep in mind the below points while making the design:


  1. Prepare the layout of the room accurately. The positioning of doors, windows, pillars should be clearly mentioned.
  2. Decide the number of students conducting experiments in a session
  3. Select a combination of Work stations like Wet lab Workbench for Chemistry lab & Biology lab and Dry lab Workbench for Physics lab
  4. Select Island or Wall-facing type Lab furniture Workbench as per requirement
  5. Make sure to choose the base material (MDF/CRCA) of the Lab tables (Workbench) keeping in my mind, strength, longevity, and budget
  6. Benchtop material (MDF/Granite) of the Lab tables (Workbench) to be selected keeping in my mind, strength, longevity, and budget. 18mm thick granite or 25mm thick MDF worktop is advisable.
  7. There should be enough number of base cabinets/overhead cabinets / full height cabinets to store the lab materials.
  8. One demonstration table/teacher’s table to be placed.
  9. Laying of Water and gas pipeline in the lab to be designed as required
