Based on 24/7 occupancy, seven days a week, the load on these work places is over four times higher than in a standard 40-hour working week. Over the years, Markant has become a specialist in the supply of 24/7 work places.
The furniture in control and dealing rooms is subject to very strict requirements. This is logical because such environments host business-critical processes that cannot be disturbed unnecessarily. In addition, furniture is also exposed to physical loads that are many times higher than those experienced during standard use.
Markant supports and oversees the entire process from the concept phase up to the design and delivery of the control/dealing room. The ‘Research and Development’ department at Markant uses the programme of requirements to compile a draft design. A final design is then formulated after mutual consultation and fine-tuning with end users, which is supported by technical drawings and photographic rendering.
“After all, work places are not alone in being subject to strict requirements; high demands are also placed on the people who work in such environments, which means they often have to perform under considerable pressure.”
Advantages of 24/7
Almost every conceivable set-up can be realised
Creates a pleasant environment
24/7 work places almost always accommodate numerous monitors. The required level of adjustability for monitors is determined by the activities performed at the work place and the number of users during the course of the day. Ideally, the height and depth of all monitors will be simultaneously modified electrically. Depending on the number and format of monitors required, the frame construction will be modified to make it 100% compatible with all (future) requirements.
Alternating seated and standing work helps to improve the user’s productivity and concentration. And this is crucial in a demanding work environment like a control/dealing room. Even more so because users almost exclusively perform their work behind the work place. Another advantage is that alternating seated and standing work helps to prevent RSI complaints and improves the sustainable deployment of employees. Height configuration has a scope of 62-128 cm and is electronically controlled using powerful, silent motors.
Well-guided and concealed wires are essential due to the use of multiple monitors and the amount of equipment and peripherals on and around the work place. On the one hand, the 24/7 work place must be wire-free so that activities are not hindered. On the other hand, in case of emergencies, it must be easy for the ICT department to quickly and easily replace equipment and wires. Effective wire management increases hygienic work conditions and improves the reliability of the systems. Thus lower personnel absenteeism and higher productivity.
