What Type of Chairs are Best for Laboratories & Industrial Facilities?
Are you having trouble deciding on which chairs to specify for your wet lab, cleanroom, electronics manufacturing factory, or industrial facility?
Wet labs create an exceptionally demanding physical environment. Accidental chemical spills are always a risk, so you need to choose your chair specifications carefully.
Ordinary fabric upholstery is usually a poor choice, due to their inability to resist chemical exposure without staining; also, ordinary upholstery fabrics can absorb and retain unpleasant chemical odors, especially at the seams.
Instead, take a look at fully enclosed urethane seating designs with minimal seams, which make them easier to clean and maintain, as well as providing greater resistant to multiple chemical exposures.
Because the majority of wet lab designs are designed with countertop height work surfaces, you'll need to select chairs that incorporate durable foot rings or platform-style footrests — to prevent 'dangling feet' that can cause unnecessary worker fatigue. Footrests and platforms made from metal are long-lasting and may be more resistant to the demands of especially harsh wet lab environments compared to conventional "composite" ones, e.g. those made from molded plastic.
Finally, to facilitate lab workers shifting from one area of the lab to another, you'll want to specify heavy-duty hard floor casters. Providing suitable seating for cleanroom environments is a challenge.
Ordinary furniture seating systems are out of the question — as their friable upholstery fabrics and hard-to-clean surfaces can generate and collect dust particles.
What to do?
Well, if your cleanroom application is rated between Class 100,000 (ISO 8) and Class 100 (ISO 5)*n there is now a solution: seating systems that are specially designed for high-performance cleanroom operations.
How can these comfortable chairs, with their 3-Function adjustable seating mechanisms, comply with the demands of Class 100 (ISO 5) cleanroom environments?
If your cleanroom application is even more demanding — e.g. Class 10 (ISO 4) or Class 1 (ISO 3) environments — Formaspace can custom manufacture metal seating solutions, such as gowning benches that are tailored to your unique cleanroom needs.
