Computer Tables

Computer tables vary from single-students desks and laptop tables to full-scale multimedia workstations with integrated power outlets, data ports, and storage for all computer essentials. Computer tables are available in different shapes such as; trapezoid, half-round, quarter-round and crescent.

Styles

Connecting/ Transition Table: These tables are used to join two or more computer tables in a modular or customizable design.

Compact Size: Compact computer tables are ideal for personal and office use when overall available space is limited or shared.

Flip Top Table: Many computer tables offer a flip-up tabletop design with a secure mechanism that safely holds the tabletop in an open, usable position. When flipped up, the table provides space-saving storage and most accommodate table nesting for storage, transport, rearranging, or other needs.

Instructor Table: Instructor tables usually include more storage space and support a full computer system with ample space for computer essentials as well as a writing or work surface.

Media Table: The media tables are generally smaller than full computer tables but offer ample space for a variety of devices and some media tables offer the option to join with coordinating tables in larger configurations.

Nesting Tables: Nesting tables fit neatly together, like shopping carts, for space-saving storage and bulk transport.

Peninsula Desk: The peninsula desk offers freestanding use with one flat side, a generally rectangular length and a curved or rounded side that can be used alone or with coordinating desks and tables for larger workstation configurations.

Printer Stand: Printer stands are usually designed with a smaller work surface but large enough for a printer, scanner, fax machine, or other device used to support a computer or technology workstation.

Seminar Table: Seminar tables are usually narrower than standard computer tables, with length to support multiple users. The narrower design allows more seminar tables to fit comfortably into seminar or training facilities or classrooms, maximizing space.

Standing Workstation: Workstations with fixed-height or adjustable-height that reaches above 40”-high are designed for standing access. Adjustable-height workstations for sitting or standing use will have an adjustable height-range from between 30” to 36” for sitting use, and adjustable up to 42” or higher for standing use.

Split-Level Top Table: A computer table with a split-level top features a lateral divide forming a front platform and a back platform, with an adjustable height allowing customized positioning of one or both work surface platforms.

Table Base Styles

Cantilever Legs: Cantilever legs usually have an L-shape or angled L-shape, designed to safely support the full weight of the desk with balance.

Low-Profile Feet: Low-profile feet have a reduced height or thickness for a flatter appearance against the floor or carpet, but without a loss of stability or support to the frame structure.

Y-Legs: Y-legs on computer tables have a reinforced upper structure with Y-shaped extensions that reinforce contact with the single leg posts and the tabletop.

Tabletop Materials

Blow Molded High-Density Polyethylene Top: Is designed with a preset mold in which melted or molten polyethylene is pushed and worked into the mold, yielding a desired tabletop shape with balanced style, lasting color and generally easy-clean surfaces.

High-Pressure Laminate: High-pressure laminate consists of several under-layers topped with a decorative layer and finished with a protective overlay. The laminate finish provides a long-lasting, durable work surface that is scratch and stain-resistant, and in most cases it is also heat-resistant for added benefit.

Melamine Finish: Melamine is similar to laminate finish, but utilizes fewer layers and the melamine finish is often thermofused to create a durable, long-lasting plastic-like finish. Slightly more economical than laminate, melamine is a popular finish for furniture.

Vacuum Formed PVC Top: Vacuum-formed PVC tabletops are constructed in a molded fashion, where a sheet of PVC plastic is warmed until it becomes pliable. The warmed sheet of PVC plastic is then placed over a mold that will yield the desired end-result. The container holding the mold, with warmed PVC in place, is then closed and a vacuum removes the air, forcing the warmed PVC to fit the mold and conform to the desired shape.

Edging Materials

Self-Edge: Self-edges are finished with laminate, melamine, or veneer to match the work surface finish.

T-Molded Edge: Tables with T-mold edging is usually composed of vinyl that has been molded to form a T-shape. A groove is removed around the tabletop perimeter, allowing the stem-portion of the T-mold edge strip to be installed within the tabletop.

Vinyl Edge: The vinyl offers a softer edge for leaning over work without the risk of clothing snags or scratches from any rough edges. The vinyl also absorbs shock from bumps and impact that occur with everyday use, protecting the work surface and finish from damage.

Construction Materials

Eco-Friendly Powder-Coat Paint Finish: Most of our powder-coat paint finishes utilize environmentally-friendly paints and enamels and protect the frame and steel components for long-lasting appearance.

Fiberboard Core: Fiberboard core is an alternative component to particleboard or other cores, used to support the bulk of the furniture structure and added weight. Unlike particleboard, which consists of resin-bonded wood chips and saw dust, fiberboard deconstructs hard and soft wood pieces to create fibers, which are then mixed with wax or resin to bind the fibers together. The mixture is pressed to form boards without air pockets and set with high heat and pressure for added strength.

Laminate Backer Sheet: A laminate backer sheet seals the underside or non-exposed surfaces of furniture to prevent moisture damage, add strength and structural support, and reduce the risk of damages that tend to occur over time.

Particleboard Core: Particleboard core refers to the thickness of work surfaces and many furniture structures finished in laminate or melamine. Particleboard is composed from wood chips and saw dust, bonded usually with a synthetic resin, and pressed to form boards with even thickness, no air pockets, consistent shape, and reliable strength.

Plywood Core: Plywood core is used to provide the strength and thickness to furniture, with wood veneer, melamine, or laminate finish for lasting quality use. Plywood is formed from wood veneer or ply layers that are rotated so the wood grain alternates from one layer to the next, increasing the strength.

Table Components

Backpack Storage Hooks: Backpack hooks are constructed from steel and factory-installed for a long-lasting fixture. The hooks are finished to match the frame and provide support for school backpacks to keep floors free of clutter and the workstations neat.

Cable Channel: A cable channel is a built-in tunnel-like passage that conceals cables and wires within the frame for a neat and organized technology setup with reduced wire clutter for a safe and professional layout.

Cable Trough or Bin: A cable bin or cable trough is usually an enclosed compartment that stores and organizes computer and technology wires for a clutter-free workspace.

Carrel Kit: A Carrel Kit will provide the components to transform a computer table into a private study workstation that resembles a testing center desk or study carrel layout.

Casters: Casters add mobility to tables and desks, usually in a hooded two-wheel design to add strength and protect from clothing snags. When four casters are installed, two of them will include locks to stabilize the table or desk for safe, stationary use.

Center Support Bar: A center support bar extends across the frame of a table or workstation and adds reinforcing strength and stability to the overall structure.

CPU Platform

CPU Platform: The CPU platform raises the CPU off the floor for safety, to prevent moisture damage in the event of a spill or cleanup, and keep the unit stable and safe during use.

Data Module: Built-in data modules typically include USB ports and may include electrical outlets for convenience.

Floor Glides: Floor glides provide a buffer between the legs of computer tables and the floor, with a nylon or plastic construction in most cases to prevent, scratches, scuffs, or marring. Adjustable floor glides will help prevent wobbling and unwanted rocking or movement when the table is placed on an uneven surface.

Full-Length Cable Chase: A cable chase stores wires and cables for a computer system and supports neat setup and use with pass-through access ports.

Full-Length Stretcher Bar: Full-length stretcher bars are installed or welded with the frame of the table or desk, either directly underneath the work surface or along the middle or lower frame, enhancing stability of the frame and supports the work surface.

Grommet Holes: Grommet holes enable power cords to run through the work surface instead of having to drop behind or beside the workstation, and they also support interconnecting cables, USB cables, Ethernet cable, and other wires to enhance an overall neat and organized setup.

J-Channel for Wires: Usually built into the modesty panel, a J-channel is shaped like a capital J, with looped bottom edge for catching wires and cables as they run under the work surface and along the length of the desk.

Locking Cable Chase: A locking cable chase secures important power cords, adapters, Ethernet cables, and other wires for a clutter-free, safe, and professional setup.

Mar-Proof Foot Caps: Mar-Proof Foot caps fit over the legs of the computer table frame, protecting the floor surfaces from potential damage caused from everyday use.

Modesty Panel: A modesty panel is located underneath the tabletop or desktop, toward the front side, concealing some or the entire under-desk region. Modesty panels can be decorative and/or functional, with many computer table modesty panels offering built-in cable management support.

Monitor Bay: Built into several distinctive styles of computer tables and desks, monitor bays offer space-saving storage and quick access to the computer monitor.

Monitor Shelf: A custom-designed raised platform designed to support a computer monitor and usually has a fixed height above the work surface for better posture and viewing.

Power Unit: A built-in power unit generally supplies two electrical outlets directly to the computer table or desk, with an extension power cord to supply the outlets from a nearby floor or wall electrical socket. These built-in power units may contain surge protection, when specified, and some are power and data units with USB or other ports for added convenience.

Radius Corners: To prevent damage to walls and reduce the risk of bumps and injury, many sharp corners on tables are rounded for a radius corner that softens the overall appearance and smooths the angles for a softer feel.

Rear Casters: Is where the base is set on two casters, instead of four. To engage the rear casters, the front of the table is lifted gently for a tilt-and-roll mobility.

Removable Leg Panels: Workstations and tables with removable leg panels have integrated storage compartments and wire management channels that are accessible behind the removable panels and concealed when the panels are in place, keeping the environment safe and clutter free.

Security Rail: A security rail refers to the small wire guardrail installed behind a raised shelf or along the backside or corner of a workstation to prevent expensive equipment, such as monitors or printers, from sliding off the back.

Surge Protector: A surge protector reduces the effects of electrical surges, electrical shortages, power spikes, and power outages, and is designed to prevent damage to computer systems and other technology devices from these electrical events.

Features

ADA Compliant: ADA, Americans with Disabilities Act, compliance refers to the sizing of furniture to comfortably accommodate wheelchair accessibility.

Adjustable in 1in Increments: The intervals along adjustable-height table frames are preset at 1”-increments to simplify the table height adjustments and help secure the adjusted tabletop position.

Left or Right Assembly: This convenient feature allows the desk or table to be assembled in a configuration that naturally suits the target user.

Mounting Plates: Mounting plates simplify installation and assembly of computer table legs on many models. They are factory installed to the underside of the work surface and custom-designed to connect and secure to the table legs.

Single Hinge Folding Mechanism: Tables with a flip-up top or folding frame that specify using a single-hinge mechanism refers to one large hinge securing the tabletop to the frame and enabling an easy setup and take-down folding design.

Station-to-Station Networking: Computer workstations, tables, and desks with grommets or wire access ports on the sides support station-to-station networking, allowing essential wires and cables to run through multiple workstations for neat setup and convenient access to shared power strips, wired Internet access, and other technology needs.

Wire Management: Wire management or cable management is a system of access grommet holes, cutouts, channels, and storage compartments designed to help organize technology cables, power cords, wires, and other clutter-causing components.
