Premium Table Range Combines Chemical Resistance and Durability

Jan 13 2020 Read 173 Times

Hygienic furniture specialist Teknomek has launched a premium table range using Trespa® TopLab® Base tops. The freestanding tables are the first on the market to combine a 304-grade stainless steel base with Trespa TopLab surfaces. The antimicrobial properties of the tables, combined with excellent chemical resistance and durability, make them an ideal option for cleanrooms and laboratories.


Sue Springett, Commercial Manager at Teknomek, said: “The new range meets the needs of the most discerning customers; 304 grade stainless steel is naturally anti-microbial and Trespa TopLab’s High Pressure Laminate (HPL) offers exceptionally smooth and biologically clean surface properties. It’s a meeting of quality with quality.”

Trespa employs Electron Beam Curing on its Toplab surfaces, which results in a closed surface that limits micropores that can harbour bacteria. It offers a RA count rivalling electropolished stainless steel - but at a much more cost-effective price point.

The TopLab surfaces are scratch and impact resistant, and their dense molecular coating makes them almost impervious to temperature, UV radiation and humidity. They are robust enough to manage mechanical, thermal and chemical sterilisation processes, including the most aggressive cleaning products.

As well as being tough, the surfaces combine with Teknomek’s hygienic design, which makes the tables quick and easy to clean. This offers greater access beneath and around the unit thanks to an additional 300mm ground clearance. Customers can also opt for a diamond rear rail to remove potential dirt traps, or a Trespa TopLab Base undershelf.

Sue Springett commented: “Trespa tops are available with other (mild) stainless steel bases. However, our intelligent, hygienic thinking makes for a much more considered solution for the pharma sector as compliance is a core consideration. The coming together of Teknomek and Trespa fulfils a particular need within this market and we plan to grow the range over the next 12 months.”
