Laboratory cabinets and countertops are some of the most important pieces of lab furniture for your laboratory because you will use them for most of your work. You may be tempted to go out and get the cheapest option, but a quality laboratory cabinet can not only make work more enjoyable, but also cost you less over time.
Finding the Right Laboratory Cabinet
Since a laboratory cabinet plays such an important role in storing the chemicals you work with, it is important to invest in reliable cabinets. Storing your chemicals in any old cabinet could slow your workflow and cause injury.
A good lab cabinet should be made of metal. Metal lab cabinets are simply more durable than their wooden counterparts. Furthermore, wooden lab cabinets are more difficult to clean. Metal cabinets are easier to clean and disinfect because of their impermeable surfaces, which improves safety. Metal cabinets are also built to last. Over time, wooden cabinets can become unstable, which could lead to disaster such as spilled chemicals. An investment in a metal lab cabinet may be a larger upfront cost. However, spilling chemicals stifles work productivity and causes financial loss.
When thinking about a laboratory cabinet, you also need to think about its countertops. A good chemical resistant countertop provides a cleaner workspace for lab technicians. In addition to a cleaner workspace, you will want your countertop to be heat resistant. A metal cabinet and lab grade countertop combination enable you to set hot items on the countertop without worrying about any damage to it or to the materials inside of the cabinet.
