C-Frames form the skeleton of the Laboratory Benches. It supports the worktop and equipment on top of the worktop. It prevent that the weight will be loaded on the under bench cabinets. The C-Frame is made from hollow sections of 30x60x2mm. The sections are cleaned, kiln dried at 200°C and painted with anti-acid epoxy paint. When suspended cabinets are used they are also fixed to the c-frame. Mobile cabinets are placed on the floor and can be placed between the C-Frames. On locations where no cabinets are placed the back side is covered with panels. Both panels and cabinets can be easily removed to allow access to the services routed at the backside of the furniture. C-Frames are available in lengths between 450 and 1800 mm. These modules can be connected together to create larger benches. The C-Frames have hard PVC leg supports. These supports are used for levelling and prevent corrosion.If an energy panel will be used together with the bench than the back side of the C-Frames will be connected to the supports of the energy panel. This allows the bench to be separated from the energy panel. This is useful when major work needs to be done around the area. The back side of the benches where no cabinets are mounted are covered with panels. If mobile cabinets are used the complete C-frame will be covered with panels. Also the sides which are directly visible will be covered with panels.Parts of benches which are not filled with cabinets, generally used as sitting space, are covered with metal panels. In the case mobile cabinets are used underneath the benches the whole backside of the bench is covered by panels. In case the sides of the C-Frames are visible they also will be covered by panels. When pedestal type furniture is used, which do not use the C-Frames, these panels will be fixed to the cabinets directly.
