The materials used for your desks are largely a personal choice, influenced by the look you wish to achieve. Melamine faced chipboard (MFC) is the most common material used and is usually available in a wide range of wood effect finishes and some basic colours. Laminate desks finishes are usually slightly more expensive and offer some additional colour choices. Solid wood desks tend to be very expensive and are usually reserved for executive offices. A cheaper alternative is a wood veneer desk - a cheaper material, such as chipboard, with a very thin layer of real wood applied. An important indication of quality is the thickness of the desk top. Thickness can vary between 18mm and 30mm depending on the quality of the desk. This can determine the rigidity of the desk and 25mm minimum is recommended unless the office desk has a strong under-frame.
The biggest advantage of bench desks is their modular design, which caters for changes, whether additional desk space is required or your existing layout needs reconfiguration. A well designed system will have add-ons (extensions) for small meetings, movable shelves and screens as well as matching storage cabinets, all of which are infinitely configurable to meet your office needs. The Gate system by Innova is a particularly good example of this. The modular nature of these systems creates the impression that your office has been designed for its intended purpose, with a clean, flowing, efficient look. Some bench desks have additional features. The Linnea Bench Desk system by Elite offers sliding work tops which provide quick access to power and data modules. This can be very useful for 'hot desks', where the desk is shared by a number of people or it is used as an occasional desk for visitors. The ability to be able to quickly plug a laptop into the mains, without the need to crawl under the desk, is a real bonus. The Elite Linnea Desk also has cable management built-in at no additional cost.
