Renovate Existing Chemistry Lab

Brand: Labkafe

Renovating your lab can needed for a number of reasons. It could be to update your furniture, make it well designed to make it spacious to move around or just to beautify it. We design the lab considering the number of students working simultaneously, types of experiments to be done, storage needs and amount of workable space available.
We take care of all the activities required to set up the lab from designing it to providing & setting up the furniture, plumbing etc. Just hit Get Quote button, fill up the form with your details and our team will contact you as soon as possible.

Following is the brief overview of furniture that are required for setting up a Chemistry Lab:

A workbench is the backbone of a laboratory. Especially for a chemistry laboratory where one is dealing with corrosive chemicals, high temperature, wet conditions, glassware etc. to name a few, the quality of table top material is crucial to withstand above-mentioned conditions and at the same time, it ought to be durable enough. For a chemistry laboratory following materials are generally preferred:

  • MDF: Medium-density fibre board (MDF) is an engineered wood product made by breaking down wood residuals into wood fibres, combining it with wax or resin binder to form panels by applying high temperature and pressure. It is denser and stronger than particleboard but has poor water resistance.
  • Ply Laminate board: It has a multi-layered structure with the top most material providing chemical resistance while base layers providing strength. It provides better resistance than MDF even though porosity is of higher grade. Another common practice is of adding a layer of aluminium sheet over it in order to curb it.
  • Granite Top: Granite is an igneous rock composed of silicates such as feldspar or quartz. Although it provides significant resistance to water but is vulnerable to acids. A common occurrence called etching is basically dulling of granite top surface due to reaction with acids.
  • Phenolic board: Phenolic board is made by bonding plywood with waterproof phenol resin adhesive overlaid on both sides with the phenol film. Overlaying surface is smooth, glossy and hard making it withstand abrasion, moisture-resistant (especially boiling water), and chemical resistant (commonly used chemicals, dilute acids, and alkalis).
  • Epoxy Resin board: Epoxy Resin board is made by applying a coat of epoxy resin over desired board. Epoxies generally out-perform most other resin types in terms of mechanical properties and resistance to environmental degradation. It forms a layer over base material preventing moisture and corrosive chemicals from seeping in. Also increasing its temperature and scratch resistance.

To optimize the given space, workbenches are designed in two varieties as below:

  • Island Workbench: As the name suggests, island workbench can be accessed from all the sides. Normally an Island workbench of Standard size (8’X4’) can accommodate 6-8 students at a time and it can vary as per the need.
  • Wall Facing Workbench: They are used in tandem with Island workbenches. They can accommodate 3-4 students in every running 8’ & this is totally carved out as per the requirement of individual rooms. It totally depends upon Wall-to-Wall distance & also gets affected by the pillar hindrances in between.

A reagent rack holds ready-to-use reagents and glassware to be used during experiments. It clears the workable area during the experiment and prevents accidental spillage or breakage. It
is usually mounted on top of workbench. It comes in various designs namely single and double-tiered.

Sinks are necessary for waste disposal. They come in various options like Stainless Steel, Poly propylene (PP) etc. Most of them are inert to all kind of acids, alkalis, and solvents. PP sinks are preferred as it minimizes glassware breakage on impact.

Taps are required for glassware washings especially like burettes and pipettes as well as for various experiments.

Base cabinets are storage cabinets beneath the work top. They are used to store major lab equipment and consumables locally. Pre-storage practices should be adopted and stocking of necessary materials be done at the start of each class for the accountability of inventory stock & regular monitoring of breakage in any case.
They are made of vivid materials as such CRC Sheets, MDF, Particle Board & Ply-Laminate. Many institutions go for Base Cabinets as separate entities; some go with the attached Base Cabinet to Work Tops.

Wall Cabinet is used to store bigger equipment or the ones that are not used frequently.

Lab Stools are easy to handle and don't cover a lot of space. It comes with adjustable height and offers a comfortable resting place during the course of experiments.
