5 Must-Have Science Lab Furniture Features 

The science lab is a place of discovery and experimentation. But for educators, it can also be a battleground of worn-down science lab furniture, spilled chemicals and mountains of clutter. At Diversified Spaces, we understand the unique challenges that science labs present. That’s why we offer a range of science lab furniture designed to address the most common issues teachers and students face. Let’s explore five key features you should look for when choosing science lab furniture.

1. Durable

Anyone who has stepped foot into a science lab knows they can get messy. From accidental spills to Bunsen burner use, science lab furniture needs to be able to withstand it all. That’s where durability comes into play. At Diversified, our lab tables are designed to withstand daily student use, ensuring they remain reliable for years to come. As an added protection, our furniture's wood aprons and bases are finished with an earth-friendly, chemical-resistant UV finish. We are also a SEFA member and have been independently tested to SEFA standards. durable science lab furniture room rendering

2. Chemical Resistance

If your lab uses a lot of chemicals, the correct type of top is key when choosing lab furniture. Our epoxy resin is the best option for chemical resistance, though we have multiple options to choose from as you furnish your science room. As mentioned previously, we also provide a chemical-resistant UV finish on our wood legs, frames and cabinets. This provides an extra layer of protection against corrosive substances, ensuring longevity in even the most demanding environments. Not sure which top option is best for your space?

3. Storage

Beakers, microscopes, Bunsen burners… you name it! Every science lab has an overabundance of equipment and, most of the time, limited space to store these supplies. But with the right storage solutions, organization is easy! At Diversified, we have a variety of furniture storage options, including our PerpetuLab Microscope Cabinets, easily movable Access Sliding Door Cabinets and even our PerpetuLab Skeleton Cabinets and Torso Cabinets! Our workstations also come equipped with multiple storage configuration options, including shelves, cabinets and drawers.

A well-equipped science lab is essential for facilitating a wide range of experiments and activities. That's why our science lab furniture is thoughtfully designed with functionality in mind. Several of our science workstations have built-in sinks that provide convenient access to water for experiments and cleanup, while gas and electrical outlets ensure seamless connectivity for powering equipment. Additionally, many of our seating options cater to students of all heights, promoting comfort and extra support throughout the learning process.

5. Collaborative

Science lab furniture should also be designed to promote collaboration among students. Collaborative learning is essential to science education, allowing students to share ideas, work together on experiments and learn from each other. We have a variety of workstations and tables designed for group work, like our Forward Vision Tables. These mobile tables are easy to rearrange, making them perfect for both lecture and collaboration settings. Plus, they come in a variety of colors to brighten up the classroom!   forward vision table
