Your work area, the equipment you use, where you seat yourself, and where you continue your research defines your occupation. Designing the right environment for your work and your fellow team is the most important factor in a successful project.
Let our design department at Kraftwerks assist in your facility planning. We can help you configure your research area, choose the right surface to work on given the materials and substances that are handled daily, choose the most suitable ergonomic chair with the right height and adjustability for comfort and workflow, and design the perfect layout and floor plan for a systematic flow of the cutting edge research and development.
Adaptable Laboratory Furniture
Kewaunee CoDA Modular System
Kewaunee has partnered with international design studio Rainlight to create the Collaborative Design Architecture (CoDA) laboratory furniture benching system. CoDA’s modular design offers adjustable height surfaces, moveable shelving, and integrated lighting, with companion tables available to complement the main system. With spans of up to 10 feet long between structural supports, CoDA’s bench enables greater flexibility for lab layout. These long spans divide into five-foot modules, giving users optimal versatility to personalize their space by adjusting work surface heights or inserting tall equipment. Vertical elements can accommodate video displays, sinks with recessed drying racks, or other components. CoDA can be manufactured to nearly any configuration for installation in new construction projects or renovated facilities. It can be used for multidisciplinary research, laboratories, computational spaces, collaboration hubs, maker spaces, team zones, individual zones, equipment support, and utility management.
Kewaunee’s commitment is to engineer high quality products to meet the needs of any laboratory. The Alpha System reflects this commitment. Alpha is adaptable furniture that provides casework, work surfaces, support structures, and integrated services. By combining these elements, the Alpha System creates labs of functionality, adaptability, mobility and beauty. Kewaunee’s engineers, along with Kraftwerks will help you design a lab that meets your specific needs.
Eagle’s AdjusTable Overhead System
This system allows you to create work surfaces enhanced with single or multiple overshelves. Each work system comes with two 33″ posts, two 63″ posts and your choice of the following table bases: two C-frames; two H- frames; one C-frame and one wire shelf; or one H-frame and one wire shelf. The available sizes are 24″ width and 36″ or 48″ length. Work surfaces are available with solid or perforated tops, brushed or electropolished. Cantilevered shelves are offered in stainless steel or chrome finish and are sold separately. Optional keyboard and utility drawers are available.
BOSTONtec laboratory workstations are easily configured to meet the needs of 90 percent of operators or what ergonomists refer to as the 5th to 95th percentile. Designed for operator comfort in either sitting or standing position, (manual or electric) height-adjustable workstations support ADA compliance.
Open wire construction promotes higher visibility and permits greater air circulation, which reduces dust and contamination build up. QuadTruss® design makes shelves up to 25% stronger. Posts are numbered on vertical 1″ increments to ensure fast, level assembly of shelves and maximum flexibility for unit/cart configuration. Numerous sizes, finishes, and combinations are available.

Wood Laboratory Furniture
Signature Series wood Laboratory furniture is one of Kewaunee’s new generation product lines designed specifically to meet today’s quality/value laboratory standards.
Highest standards of wood casework construction, plus multiple choices of premium wood species and beautiful acid-resistant finishes, make Signature Series furniture the choice of laboratory equipment specifiers and users world-wide.
Signature Series furniture is extremely flexible in style and function. The wide selection of unit sizes, types, and finishes meets the demanding criteria of users representing many disciplines in industry, research centers, schools and universities, government facilities, hospitals, and clinics.
Alpha Columns are a moveable, freestanding bench design that integrates seamlessly with the entire Alpha family of products. Alpha Columns can create individual self-supported workstations or be designed with a shared structural “column” for multiple workstation applications. Work surfaces and shelving are adjustable on 1″ increments and are designed to integrate with mobile or floor-mounted cabinetry. The column can be pre-plumbed or pre-wired for use with overhead service carriers or panels. The column itself is a 6″ wide support member utilizing Alpha’s unique double-slotted design for true component interchangeability.
Alpha Columns provide the structural integrity required for today’s laboratory bench with the inflexibility of built-in casework systems.
Available pre-plumbed and pre-wired, this design easily incorporates with overhead carriers and panel systems. Work surfaces are adjustable from sitting height to standing height, and above counter shelving is adjustable on 1″ increments. Enterprise is designed for mobile or floor mounted casework. Kewaunee’s Enterprise provides a completely moveable laboratory casework system to meet the needs of a changing lab environment.
These racks are designed for efficient storage of garments in the cleanroom. They are available in stainless steel or an electropolished finish. The stainless steel construction offers a non-contaminating surface that eliminates particle shedding. The electropolished models feature electrochemically passivated surfaces, for the most demanding requirements.

Proven over many years of laboratory service, steel laboratory furniture is a natural choice when low-maintenance, trouble-free operation is expected – especially in those lab situations where the furniture is subjected to the heavy-duty loads of massive equipment.
With engineered formations and reinforcement, steel furniture is built to take it. The environmentally-friendly, electrostatically-applied powder coat finish is of laboratory grade formulation and meets all SEFA 8 chemical resistance requirements. Designing your laboratory with Kewaunee’s steel laboratory furniture is an intelligent practical approach to your heavy-duty laboratory operations.

Kemresin® Tub Sinks
Kemresin Tub Sinks are made from a combination of modified epoxy resins, upgraded for maximum properties with carefully selected curing resins and inert fillers to produce a thermosetting material. They are formed in metal molds to provide one-piece units with coved corners and bottoms pitched to the drain outlet. After being removed from the molds, they are cured at high temperatures for several hours to complete the chemical reaction and ensure maximum chemical, impact, and thermal shock resistance. Drain outlets are sized for 1½” sink outlets unless otherwise specified.

Worktops & Sinks
Worktop material selections are among the most critical of the laboratory furniture decisions. The intended applications for your worktops dictate their material choice. Surfaces could be exposed to reagents and caustic substances. Heavy equipment may need to be supported or only light duty tasks may be performed. Kewaunee can recommend and furnish materials fabricated to your individual needs, complete with appropriate sinks, drains and accessories.
