We have been very happy with the process of fitting out our labs with the assistance of Klick Laboratories. From the first meeting to the end of the installation the experience has been easy. Simon attended the site and took measurements and a brief on what we required for each room. We then received great 3D images of every room with the layouts that we had discussed. This allowed us to see how the labs would look and how the furniture would fit, we were then able to review and tweak the layouts which we did several times to get the right outcome. The fitting process was also easy, the labs now look great and are finished to a high standard.
I would say the 3D images of the rooms during the planning phase was the key factor in our decision to go with Klick for our laboratory furniture.”
Research Agronomist - Agricultural Facility, Shropshire
The building was previously a dairy with milking parlours and was converted to provide commercial laboratories for an agricultural facility in Shropshire. The client required fitted furniture for the labs which are used for processing and testing samples.
The facility consists of 9 labs, which are maintained as separate units to avoid contamination of samples. A fume cupboard is used in addition to localised extraction units with telescopic arms.
Klick worked with the client to refine the furniture design and submitted various options of 3D drawings until the layout was approved. Our designers also advised on details such as the positioning of the sinks, from a health and safety perspective.
Storage is critical to the smooth running of the facility, due to the high level of samples that are processed and therefore the labs are fitted with elements of fixed benching, with cupboard storage below and wall units above. Klick liaised with the main contractor as the walls had to be reinforced to take the load of the wall units.
Heavy duty mobile tables were specified to be the same height as the fixed Trespa benching. These units are used to manoeuvre samples from the fixed benching. They feature casters which can be locked into position, providing a stable work surface and a loading of 250kg when stationary. The samples are processed on the mobile units before being transported on the units to their final destination.
Klick’s installation team worked closely with the other trades on site, the installation ran like clockwork and everything was finished according to schedule.
