Mobile bench can carry its workload

LOADS of over 300kg (660lb) can be supported by a work bench from a Notts-based firm.

The Kaymar Technical Furniture Systemss mobile bench comprises a galvanised work-top, and sits on nylon rubber castors. It measures 1100mm wide x 640mm deep x 925mm high (44in x 25in x 37in) and includes a cupboard and six compartmentalised drawers.

Switching from static bench to mobile unit involves lifting a steering handle and pushing. To change back again, a safety parking brake has to be applied before the steering handle can be lowered.

The Kaymar bench is priced at £591 (01773-810107).
