Leighton Buzzard, UK, December 18800px Custom_Consoles_SteelBase_control_desk, 2017 – Custom Consoles will promote its full range of security control room desks and video monitor mounting systems at the Security & Counter Terror Expo (SCTX) , London Olympia, March 6-7, 2018.

Exhibiting on stand D89, the company will be represented by Neil Reed (Managing Director), and Gary Fuller (Sales Manager).

Central feature of the Custom Consoles exhibit will be a SteelBase-Lite desk. This can be configured to provide an ergonomically efficient working environment for any size of control room. In addition Custom Consoles are also providing a control desk from its SteelBase range for the Integrated Security exhibit which will be one of the main features at the show.

Widely used in defence, surveillance and critical process control applications where they can be specified for single-operator or multi-operator environments. SteelBase desks are built on 19 inch steel base frames. Desktops are surfaced in a choice of hard-wearing laminate or marmoleum. Additional design features of the range include hinged removable access doors, 19 inch equipment racking, sliding equipment trays, heavy cable management, PC sliding mounts, power distribution and data panels, and variable-speed ventilation fans. Worktops can be rectangular or curved, including angled or curved corners and optional curved-front-profile side panels. All elements of the desks are guaranteed against component failure for five years of normal use. SteelBase has been tested by FIRA and certified to conform to ISO9241 part 5, ISO11064 Part 4, EN527 Part 1, 2 and 3.

Steelbase-Lite is a compact and cost-efficient variant. Each unit incorporates a PC storage base with two hinged removable access doors at front and rear. All doors have ventilation ports running almost the full height. Each SteelBase-Lite desk unit is equipped with cable management ducts plus easy cable access from the computer housing via a brush strip running the full width of the worktop. Adjacent to this is a video display support frame with two VESA monitor mounts which attach to height-adjustable horizontal aluminium-frame beams. Robust steel arms and profiled legs integrated with the main desk unit give SteelBase-Lite very high strength and rigidity.

“We will also be promoting our wider product ranges including Module-R desks as well as our Media Wall and MediaPost video display mounts,” Gary Fuller comments. “Module-R and Media Wall have proved highly successful in the broadcast market, particularly for use in master control rooms. Module-R gives customers the freedom to specify control desks from a standard range of mix-and-matchable elements without incurring the expense of tailor-made furniture. Media Wall provides similar versatility in the specification and installation of flat-screen video display panels which can be provided in practically any required size. Like all our products, Media Wall and the recently introduced standalone MediaPost incorporate reflect our careful attention to detail in aspects such as cable management.”
