800 CCL_SteelBase_control_suiteLeighton Buzzard, UK, October 17, 2017 – One of Europe’s leading courier service companies has invested in control desks and customised furniture from technical furniture specialist Custom Consoles. The new facility enables the company to react to changes such as road closures or bad weather, taking pre-emptive action, and informing clients in real time.

Good ergonomics, robust construction and the ability to match technical and dimensional specifications were key elements in the choice of Custom Consoles as the preferred supplier.

“We designed, supplied and installed furniture for the Monitoring & Communication Centre’s control room and two meeting rooms,” details Custom Consoles’ Sales Manager, Gary Fuller. “The control room is equipped with two six metre wide rectangular SteelBase desks facing a multiscreen monitor display. Each desk provides working space for five operators, each of whom has direct access two computer monitors within easy reach on user-adjustable Ergotron monitor mounts.

“Near the opposite wall is a custom-designed desk for eight planning team operators in a four facing four configuration. Each of these positions has a single computer monitor, again on a user-adjustable Ergotron support arm. Supplementary furniture provided for the control room includes storage facilities and a supervisor’s desk.

“For the larger of the two meeting rooms we have designed and produced a 4.2 metre long by 1.2 metre wide table with integral monitor feeds and power ports, for use by up to 14 people. For the second meeting room, adjacent to the supervisor’s desk, we has supplied a circular desk – also incorporating monitor connection ports.

“Finish throughout is in matching grey with highly durable Trespa pale grey work surfaces.”
