UK: M Desk Technical is a new structured system from Custom Consoles that enables bespoke studio furniture to be configured from a range of standard modules combined with user-specified work-surface dimensions. The new line is said to marry "the versatility of bespoke furniture with the cost-efficiency and fast delivery our customers often need to meet their own working schedules", reports PSN-e.

The M Desk Technical range of modules includes 13U high, 19-inch equipment pedestals and free-standing, 19-inch desktop pods. Features include a 900mm deep work surface, heavy cable management and flat screen mounting. Removable access panels can be located at the front or rear. Three-layer horizontal cable management can be routed along the entire width of the desk with access via an intermediate leg or pedestal; alternatively, three-compartment trunking can be fitted.

The product line is available in maple veneer or textured grey-sprayed finish with a choice of Marmoleum work surface colours. Legs are Custom's M Desk aluminium extrusions with integral cable ducting.

Designed around BS EN ISO9241-5 ergonomic requirements, the range is typically available within lead times of 14 to 21 working days from design approval.

"Ideally suited to PC-based control rooms and engineering suites, M Desk Technical can be configured to be both site and client specific," commented Gary Fuller, sales manager of Custom Consoles.
