Modern bench desk systems are engineered to allow the sharing of the central leg (between workstations). With no obtrusive leg in the way, employees have more space to move freely in their work, an essential contribution to wellbeing in the workplace. Teamwork and improved communication are promoted as employees can easily join their neighbor at the adjoining desk for an impromptu meeting or discussion regarding their work. Bench desks are usually constructed with a central beam, out of sight, on the underside of the desk, which creates an exceptionally strong work surface; handy if you are operating with heavy IT equipment such as large screened iMacs. With a central beam, 18mm work tops are usually adequate but look for stronger 25mm tops to be sure your requirements are met.
