SES Water, the water-only company supplying approximately 712,000 consumers across East Surrey and parts of south London, west Kent and West Sussex, has chosen Custom Consoles SteelBase Lite technical furniture for the water treatment control room at its Elmer Treatment Works. The project included the design and onsite integration of an L-shaped 4.6 metre wide by 3 metre deep dual-operator desk and a rectangular 4.2 metre wide by 80 cm deep purpose-built three-operator desk.

Both desks incorporate computer equipment cabled to process-control monitor displays mounted on user-adjustable Ergotron support arms. The desks are finished using Marmoleum worktops for durability. Removable, hinged and locking front and rear access doors complete with ventilation ports allow easy access to the interior compartments for equipment configuration and maintenance.

Cable management is provided throughout the console with access via hinged removable doors to both front and rear. Built to withstand the wear and tear of the utilities and marine industries while still providing ergonomic efficiency and attractive styling. The desks are built on extremely robust steel base frames with desktops surfaced in a choice of hard-wearing laminate, Marmoleum or Trespa. Each SteelBase desk is powder coated in textured black.

A variant of the SteelBase series, SteelBase-Lite is a compact structured flat pack desking system enabling bespoke configuration from a number 1.2 metre wide powder coated modules and laminate work surfaces, providing a self assembly hard wearing ergonomic solution for control room consoles. SteelBase-Lite comes complete with two VESA mounts per module, mounted on height adjustable beams. Additional design features of the SteelBase Lite range include hinged removable access doors, 19 inch equipment racking, heavy cable management, power distribution panels and variable-speed ventilation fans. Worktops can be configured to suit individual client requirements.

Custom Consoles reports strong demand its desks and monitor support systems from broadcasters around the globe. Contracts currently in progress include a project for a large internationally-active TV production service-provider and another for one of London’s best known performing-arts venues.

Recently completed work includes six desks for the Geneva headquarters of Radio Télévision Suisse, 22 desks for the RTS radio facility in Lausanne, seven desks for the Charleroi headquarters of Benelux broadcaster Be tv and a twin-desk project for the sports broadcast master control room at the IENA stadium in Avenches.

Further afield, Custom Consoles recently produced Module-R technical control desks and a 3.8 metre wide MediaWall installation for Azerbaijan Parliamentary Television at the National Assembly in Baku.

“We has also been active on the exhibition circuit,” adds Sales Manager Gary Fuller, “most recently at IBC 2019 in Amsterdam where we showed the latest refinements to our MediaWall studio monitor mounting frames and Module-R series desks. Additionally on show was an enhanced version of our SystemTwo motorised height-adjustable edit-suite desk with greater lifting power.”

A mix-and-matchable control room furniture range, Custom Consoles’ Module-R allows aesthetically attractive long-life desks to be configured to meet specific shapes and dimensions from a selection of high-quality pods, base sections, 19 inch rack housings, worktops, end-panel modules and legs. Coordinated desk pods are available as single-bay sections with up 10U chassis capacity.

Module-R has been tested by FIRA to ensure compliance with current ISO standards. It is supplied with full cable management and internal 19 inch racking, accessible via removable front and rear cover panels. All rear surfaces and pods are completely interchangeable. A full length cable brush allows easy reconfiguration.

Custom Consoles’ MediaWall allows flat-screen monitor displays of practically any width to be constructed from standard horizontal and vertical support elements. MediaWall can be used as a fully self-supporting structure or coupled directly to the studio wall. Individual screens can be positioned so that the edges meet exactly to form a continuous horizontal display limited only by the boundary of the monitor panel itself. All wiring is fully concealed and can enter or leave the structure at any desired point. MediaWall is available in any specified element widths.

Designed for use in edit suites and graphics areas, SystemTwo comprises a rectangular desk and parallel monitor shelf, both being electrically height adjustable from 660 to 1200 mm. This gives operators the choice of working while seated or standing. Other elements in the SystemTwo series include an 11U equipment pedestal, underslung 3U equipment pod and 27U equipment bay.
