RWG Chooses Custom Consoles Module-R Desk for Gas Turbine Control Room

April 17th, 2019 – Custom Consoles ( announces the completion of a technical control desk for RWG Repair & Overhauls Ltd (RWG), one of the world’s leading specialists in gas turbine maintenance, repair and overhaul. The desk is located in the gas turbine control room at RWG’s Ansty test facility in Coventry and will be used by a team of four operators to supervise gas turbine performance tests.

“Custom Consoles’s Module-R series gave us the flexibility we needed to design a desk that met our exact requirements from a standard range of frames and fittings,” comments RWG Test Support Engineer Keith Buckley. “The configuration we needed was an unusual one that would give the team plenty of space to work while at the same time allowing them to operate as a tight-knit group able to react very quickly during the various test processes we carry out.”

“We made a careful study of the available technical furniture and are pleased to report that Module-R has conformed to our highest expectations. It is very sturdily built, ergonomically excellent and attractively styled. The desk accommodates a lot of processing and communications equipment, all of which is easily accessible from front or rear during installation or routine maintenance. That includes the cable ducting which is fully concealed within main desk structure and within the supporting metal legs.”

The desk comprises six bays in total based around a dual-bay-wide central position integrated with a 45 degree right-hand corner section connecting to an additional bay. Two additional bays are located left of centre, forming a 45 degree wing. Equipment pods with angled front panels are fitted in line across the central position with additional pods on the right corner bay.

An Ergotron operator-adjustable monitor arm is mounted above each of the 3U equipment pods, supplemented by two monitor arms above the left bay, a 9th support arm in the right corner bay and and 10th at far right. Total desk dimensions are 6112 mm wide x 2996 mm front-to-back with a floor-to-work-surface height of 744 mm.

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.
