Why 3D Laminate Desktops are the Cleanest (2-MIN VIDEO)

Posted by Robin Bond on Jun 29, 2020 10:14:24 AM

 

"The average office desk has 400 times more bacteria than a toilet seat."

If you have old-school “edge-banded” desktops in your 24/7 work environment, they’re hiding a dirty secret: The average office desk has 400 times more bacteria than a toilet seat.

Casters vs. Glides on Imaging Desks (NEW VIDEO)

Posted by Mike Graham on May 18, 2020 2:10:47 PM

CastervsGliderMany facilities will request casters on imaging desks so that they can easily access the equipment or move a desk for cleaning purposes. Let’s be realistic; if the imaging desk is designed for easy access to the LCD monitors and CPUs, and it has a good cable management system, there is really no need to move the desk away from the wall.
