Custom Consoles To Show New Version of Popular Studio Desks



Control room and technical furniture provider Custom Consoles has announced new enhancements to its Module-R range of studio control room furniture and SystemTwo edit-suite desks that will be shown at the 2018 IBC Show.

Neil Reed, Managing Director at Custom Consoles, said that the new version incorporates slimmer legs plus a removable rear work surface that allows easy access to cableways. A full-length rear cable brush strip provides greater flexibility for power and signal feeds to desk-mounted monitor arms. Optional full-height end panels are now available.

Customers can now choose CDF (Compact Density Fibreboard) for pods and work surfaces. CDF is increasingly being recommended by architects both for its attractive styling and its robustness."

A mix-and-match control room furniture range, Custom Consoles' Module-R allows aesthetically attractive long-life desks to be configured to meet specific shapes and dimensions from a selection of high-quality pods, base sections, 19 inch rack housings, worktops, end-panel modules and legs. Coordinated desk pods are available as single-bay sections with up 10 U chassis capacity.

Module-R has been tested by FIRA to ensure compliance with current ISO standards. It is supplied with full cable management and internal 19 inch racking, accessible via removable front and rear cover panels. All rear surfaces and pods are completely interchangeable. A full-length cable brush allows easy reconfiguration.

Designed for use in edit suites and graphics areas, SystemTwo comprises a rectangular desk and parallel monitor shelf, both being electrically height adjustable from 660 to 1200 mm. This gives operators the choice of working while seated or standing.

Lift load for both platforms has been doubled to 200 Kg, with a slimmer leg design and CDF desktop surfaces. Other elements in the SystemTwo series include an 11 U equipment pedestal, underslung 3 RU equipment pod and 27 RU equipment bay. All will be available in the new styling.
