Fast Facts on Computer Furniture:
Computer Tables and Workstations
Every school or training center needs to accommodate computer workstations. From elementary schools to universities, any educational organization can benefit from an organized and well thought out computer training room. The most important part of the room is the computer table which will give your students a work area to learn and complete their assignments. We have provided some basic tips to help you plan out your next computer table purchase.
Number of Students: Once you have established how many students will be using your computer classroom or training room you can begin designing your layout. Depending on which type of computers you are using you can select the appropriate depth for the table and also decide how the tables should be arranged in your room. If a desktop computer is used a deeper work surface is recommended. Rectangle shaped units work very well in a traditional classroom and nice even rows can be created with two, three or four student workstations arranged side by side.
Configurations: Several shapes and sizes are available when it comes to computer training tables. Rectangle, trapezoid or even cluster style pods are available. Newer models allow the instructor to conceal the electrical and data cables behind a locked compartment to avoid clutter. Split level tables give teachers the ability to adjust the viewing platform at a different height than the work surface. Leg styles range from the traditional four leg design to a pedestal style to allow for easy in and out. If users range in age from lower elementary to upper grades an adjustable height leg style is recommended.
Construction: Computer tables are very similar to other classroom tables and sometimes they are exactly the same only with a few added options. They can be constructed of metal, plastic, wood or a combination of all three. The most common type is a laminated work surface over particle board with steel legs. The computer tables have added features to allow for wire management and are also built with extra support to handle the added weight of computer and monitor equipment. Look for units with grommet holes and wire chases to route annoying computer cables out of the way.
Options: Make your tables mobile with the addition of casters or add CPU holders to keep your valuable PC or MAC up off of the floor. Need more desktop space? Add a mouse tray and keyboard tray to your table and free up valuable space for desktop instruction. Don't forget about a power strip as an option to most tables. That way you can plug in your equipment to a conveniently located electrical source.
