Custom Consoles at SCTX 2018

by Mark Rowe

Custom Consoles is exhibiting its security control room desks and video monitor mounting systems at the Security & Counter Terror Expo (SCTX). It runs again at London Olympia, on March 6 and7, 2018. On stand D89, the company will be represented by Neil Reed (Managing Director), and Gary Fuller (Sales Manager).

Central feature of the Custom Consoles exhibit will be a SteelBase-Lite desk, pictured. This can be configured to provide ergonomically efficient working for any size of control room, Custom Consoles say. The firm is also providing a control desk from its SteelBase range for the Integrated Security feature at the show.

As used in defence, surveillance and critical process control applications where they can be specified for single-operator or multi-operator use, SteelBase desks are built on 19 inch steel base frames. Desktops are surfaced in a choice of laminate or marmoleum. The range features hinged removable access doors, 19 inch equipment racking, sliding equipment trays, heavy cable management, PC sliding mounts, power distribution and data panels, and variable-speed ventilation fans. Worktops can be rectangular or curved, including angled or curved corners and optional curved-front-profile side panels. All elements of the desks are guaranteed against component failure for five years of normal use. SteelBase has been tested by FIRA and certified to conform to ISO9241 part 5, ISO11064 Part 4, EN527 Part 1, 2 and 3.

Steelbase-Lite is described by the firm as a compact and cost-efficient variant. Each unit has a PC storage base with two hinged removable access doors at front and rear. All doors have ventilation ports running almost the full height. Each SteelBase-Lite desk unit comes with cable management ducts plus cable access from the computer housing via a brush strip running the width of the worktop. Next to this is a video display support frame with two VESA monitor mounts which attach to height-adjustable horizontal aluminium-frame beams. Steel arms and profiled legs are integrated with the main desk unit.

Gary Fuller says: “We will also be promoting our wider product ranges including Module-R desks as well as our Media Wall and MediaPost video display mounts. Module-R and Media Wall have proved highly successful in the broadcast market, particularly for use in master control rooms. Module-R gives customers the freedom to specify control desks from a standard range of mix-and-matchable elements without incurring the expense of tailor-made furniture. Media Wall provides similar versatility in the specification and installation of flat-screen video display panels which can be provided in practically any required size. Like all our products, Media Wall and the recently introduced standalone MediaPost incorporate reflect our careful attention to detail in aspects such as cable management.”
