Practical and Pretty LAN Stations: The Versatile Solution for Your Office, Lab, and Work

LAN Stations. Fancy desks? Or more than that?

Answer: Most definitely more!

You may be wondering exactly what a LAN Station is. LAN stands for Local Area Network, and these stations provide storage, work space, and support for all of your technological devices and your everyday work. Commonly used as electronics test/technology benches, lab equipment, video editing stations, command consoles, security monitoring stations, storage for spare computers and accessories, and workstations, these LANs are extremely versatile. In addition they are heavy duty and of the highest quality. These stations come in two different styles: The Performance series and the Performance Plus series. Each series has different features that make either one a great addition to your space.

The Performance Series

Performance Series LAN stations are made of heavy duty steel and can support up to 1,000 pounds. They are available in several lengths (24”, 48”, 72”, and 96”), and can be figured however you like with upper and lower shelves and even a corner unit. Not only do they boast all of these features, they are also nice looking! They are also available in five different colors: African Mahogany, Caramel Apple, Folkstone, Hard Rock Maple, and Serene Cherry. There are so many options that will accommodate your space, needs, and decorative tastes.

The Performance Plus Series

Performance Plus Series LAN stations are a little more heavy duty than the Performance Series. Their shelves are supported by four posts rather than two, making them more ideal for applications where you might be requiring a bit more weight capacity on the upper shelves, and a more hard-wearing work surface. These have two upper shelves and one lower shelf in addition to the work surface, and are also available in the corner unit style. Performance Plus workbenches are available in several lengths, 36”, 48”, 60”, and 72”. However, this type of LAN is only available with a White Nebula Laminate finish. Performance Plus is also still very practical, configurable, and attractive in any workspace.

For both the Performance and the Performance Plus series, we have a ton of accessories available at Rackmount Solutions including casters, keyboard trays, utility drawers, racking systems, LCD monitor mounts and mounting bars, CPU holders, ganging brackets, and power strips. Additionally, Performance Series products are typically kept in stock, whereas Performance Plus series products have a small lead-time, generally no more than 4-5 business days. So, not only do we have all kinds of LAN racks for you but we also have everything you need to make sure that your station is the perfect fit for your office or technology space.

Why would I purchase a LAN workbench when I could just purchase a normal table or desk?

Answer: Additional shelving

Depending on which LAN series you choose, it can have two upper shelves above the workstation, and one down below it. So, if you have an application where you may need additional storage space, these are a great option. These stations also have the ability to be put on casters whereas most tables don’t, so that will give you a little flexibility in the event you might need to roll it around. LAN workbenches will accommodate your every need from storage and support to decoration and accessibility. At Rackmount Solutions, we use LAN work desks in our own office! Our sales team and customer service team have plenty of room for two computer monitors and all of their office supplies, paperwork, and other items on their desks, and they also have plenty of storage space on their shelves above.
