First of all, we should know that lab furniture is different from the ordinary furniture we use in our daily life. Lab furniture is a kind of special furniture, often exposed to acid and strong corrosive chemicals, so that lab furniture must have the characteristics of acid and alkali resisting. Lab table need to be put some experimental instruments, which is relatively heavy,so that lab table must be heavy and scratch resisting and has other characteristics. The general lab table is made of steel or wood , and its each square can resist weight from 250 kilograms to 400 kilograms.
Let us talk about the material of lab furniture, and it is much better than ordinary furniture's materials. For example,the panel of ordinary furniture is density board, which has a thickness in the range 16-18 mm. The overall density of plates is small, the effect of compression is poor, and also is not waterproof or fireproof. The plate of lab furniture is made of melamine board which has a thickness in the range 18 mm and only used in laboratory dedicated . The board can bear much weight, and acid, alkali, corrosion -resistant.
Lab furniture like lab tables , lab cabinets, experimental tanks in fume hood, laboratory faucets and so on, are corrosion, acid , alkali -resisting,resistance . This is what ordinary furniture does not have.
Independent ventilation system shall be adopted for the ventilation cabinet used in lab furniture. The exhaust system of lab fume hood should be set up independently. It is not suitable to share air duct, let alone use fire air duct.
Lab furniture includes lab table, lab fume hood and medicine cabinets, gas cabinets, balance table; household furniture includes bed, wardrobe, dressing table, TV cabinet, dining table, dining chair,whose name and performance are not the same. There is a lot of difference between lab furniture and household furniture.
