St Regis Paper orders second Custom Consoles Module-R control desk

Custom Consoles has completed the delivery of a large process control desk and video monitor wall for St Regis Paper Company Ltd. The desk was installed at St Regis’ Kemsley Mill plant in Sittingbourne, Kent. Kemsley Mill is the largest production plant in the St Regis group and one of the largest paper recycling mills in Europe.

Measuring 7.5 metres in width, the three-seat control desk is a curved design incorporating a three-drawer storage pedestal at each end. It is finished in oak with a blue Marmoleum worksurface. The central working area is supported by four extruded aluminium legs with integral cable-management ducts. Adjustable Ergotron monitor stands, also supplied by Custom Consoles, are integrated along the rear of the desk. These provide individual and quad-mount support for 19 inch LCD screens used to supervise the paper recycling process.

An oak-finished floor-to-ceiling monitor surround houses cabling to two 40 inch widescreen-format display panels employed to monitor machine-control status. This structure is 3.6 metres wide and 100 mm from front to back. The order also included a 2 x 2 metre L-shaped bespoke storage cabinet

"We invested last year in an 8 metre-wide U-shaped Custom Consoles Module-R desk for our Wansbrough Mill plant in Somerset," comments Adrian Clark, Divisional Process Control Engineer at St Regis Paper. "We have been very pleased with its appearance and robustness, hence our decision to place this second order with Custom Consoles. They interpreted our brief quickly and efficiently."

The Custom Consoles Module-R product range allows robust, efficient and attractive control-room desks to be produced to individual requirements from a range of high-quality pods, base sections, worktops, rear tops, end-panel modules and legs. Desk pods are available as single-bay sections with a choice of 3U, 6U or 8U chassis capacity. Cabinet construction is in high-quality oak-veneered MDF. Cable management ducts are integrated into all desk sections.
