Two major additions to the Custom Consoles range of studio furniture will be introduced at IFSEC2007. Founded in 1996, Custom Consoles Ltd is an independent company manufacturing a wide variety of technical desks, equipment storage cabinets and monitor screen support systems. Based in Bedfordshire, England, Custom Consoles Ltd is active worldwide.

NEW: Custom Consoles MediaOne control desk

Custom Consoles’ new MediaOne control desk (pictured above) combines height-adjustability and ultra-modern styling with operator-friendly curved edging and broad-radius corners. Designed for use with flat-screen computer monitors, MediaOne incorporates a retractable telescopic handle which allows the worksurface to be raised or lowered between 660 and 900 mm. The handle can be parked once the desk has been adjusted. Operators can thus select the preferred desktop height as well as being free to change their posture to avoid fatigue and RSI. Aesthetically pleasing aluminium extrusions combine strength with lightness, for lifetime durability. MediaOne features include integral cable management and mounting points for up to three LCD monitor arms. Constructed using Custom Consoles’ proven M Desk extrusions, MediaOne is available in maple, cherry or beech finish with a grey textured surround. An optional 19 inch 13 U pedestal is also available. This incorporates extruded pillars with veneered infills. MediaOne is guaranteed against component failure for five years of normal use. It conforms to British Standard EN ISO9241-5 (ergonomics), EN 527-1 (dimensions) and BS 4875-5, 6 and 7 (structural integrity). MediaOne is produced at Custom Consoles’ UK manufacturing facility and is available within typical lead times of 7 to 10 working days.

NEW: M Desk Technical

Custom Consoles’ new M Desk Technical is a structured system enabling bespoke security furniture to be configured from a range of standard modules. These include 13U high 19 inch equipment pedestals and free-standing 19 inch desktop pods. Ideally suited to PC-based security and process control rooms, it can be configured to be both site and client specific. Ergonomically-efficient working environments can be constructed quickly and cost-efficiently for control rooms of any size. Features include a 900 mm deep work surface, heavy cable management and flat screen mounting. Removable access panels can be located at the front or rear. Three-layer horizontal cable management can routed throughout entire width of the desk with access via an intermediate leg or pedestal. Alternatively three-compartment trunking can be fitted. M Desk Technical is available in maple veneer or textured grey sprayed finished with a choice of Marmoleum work surface colours. Legs are Custom Consoles’ proven M Desk aluminium extrusions with cable management. Designed around BS EN ISO9241-5 ergonomic requirements, Manufactured in Britain, M Desk Technical is available within typical lead times of 14 to 21 working days from design-approval.

ENHANCED: Custom Consoles Media Wall

Custom Consoles will also exhibit the latest version of its innovative Media Wall which allows large or small arrays of flat-panel monitors and ancillary equipment to be installed quickly and efficiently. Media Wall incorporates height-adjustable horizontal beams suspended between 2,000 mm high silver-anodised aluminium supports. The beams are available in 1,500, 2,000 and 2,500 metre widths and are structured to allow easy attachment of large and small panels using pivoting VESA and plasma-mount fittings.
