School Science Laboratory Furniture

School Science Laboratory Furniture

School science laboratories should be inspiring spaces.

At Klick we create science labs that will stimulate practical experimentation, interactive learning, group discussion and individual research.


Our project management team can co-ordinate the supply & installation of your school science laboratory furniture and also offer a full turnkey refurbishment service, if required.  This one-stop-shop solution includes the co-ordination of all trades – an invaluable service for busy school staff.

Functional School Laboratory Furniture


Science lab furniture for schools needs to be extremely durable, functional and cost effective. Our school laboratory furniture is made in the UK and designed to meet the demands of a busy school lab. Chemical and physical resistance comes from using the appropriate worktop material. Klick offer a number of science lab bench worktop options including Velstone, Trespa, Iroko and Corian. We offer a quality product, competitively priced to suit your budget.


Over the 40 years we have been supplying schools we have refined our school furniture construction methods and we are proud to say this has resulted in an extremely rigid and robust design.  Architects and main contractors often comment about this.  If you would like to view a sample of a ‘mini cupboard’ we would be happy for one of our consultants to visit and explain the benefits.

The school’s aim was to create outstanding science facilities of the highest quality with enduring products. At the initial tender stage furniture suppliers were asked to submit samples for assessment. Klick’s sample cupboard was robust, well constructed and met our specification. They were subsequently appointed and were able to accommodate the attention to detail required to fulfil the architect’s brief. The project was completed to the exacting standards required resulting in a flexible and modern environment of exceptional quality.

Science Laboratory Storage Solutions


Rydale School mobile science laboratory storage furniture


School laboratories require storage for a variety of different apparatus and chemicals. Easy access to equipment saves valuable lesson time.   An uncluttered environment allows students to concentrate safely on their studies and limits distractions.

From our experience with school clients we suggest including the following storage in your lab:


  • A designated area for any bags and coats to prevent tripping hazards.
  • Dedicated chemical storage cupboards that are clearly labelled and positioned in the prep room away from other equipment.
  • A combination of fixed and mobile tray storage offering customisable storage options with varying tray sizes and colour options.


Teaching Walls for School Science Laboratories


West Kirby School teaching wall with turquiose contrast doors and modular storage


Teaching walls provide flexible storage and have become an invaluable resource making good use of underutilised space at the front of the science laboratory. They are easily accessible for teaching staff and provide a good focal point for students. Units can be fitted with interactive whiteboards, trays and a variety of other features.  To find out more please visit our Teaching Walls Page.


Fume Cupboards for School Science Laboratories

School Science Prep Rooms


The design of your school prep room is critical to the smooth running of the science department. Our designers can advise on the specification of sinks, shelving and storage, making sure all equipment in the prep room can be easily accessed by technicians.


Tray Storage for Prep Rooms



The Klick ‘Superstack’ range includes high-quality fixed or mobile units with Gratnells trays.  They are available from our online shop and are a practical solution to prep room storage needs.
