Need A Heavy Duty Workbench With Drawers
25/08/2020 Lee Burnham
We like to think of heavy-duty workbenches as the ultimate all-rounders, for not only are they strong and robust enough for industrial use, but they are available in sizes that are workshop friendly. They fit in anywhere and can be used for any line of work, from electrical work and woodworking to engineering applications.
They are also available with a variety of accessories and no configuration is as versatile as a heavy-duty workbench with drawers.
When a heavy-duty workbench is paired with drawers, it becomes a workspace suitable for any application at all. The ability to store tools and materials within the workbench itself is a feature you can’t live without once you have it.
In fact, many of our customers who purchase a heavy-duty workbench come back to us after a short while wanting the drawers as well. This is a testament to how handy it is to have good storage space alongside a decent workspace.
Size and usability
When choosing a heavy-duty workbench with drawers it’s important to consider the size of the workspace itself. The last thing you want is a workbench that’s too small for your needs or too big for the space in your workshop.
The most common workbench sizes are as follows (W D H):
· 1200 x 750 x 840mm
· 1500 x 600 x 840mm
· 1500 x 900 x 840mm
· 2000 x 600 x 840mm
· 2000 x 750 x 840mm
· 2000 x 900 x 840mm
Take measurements of the spot in your workshop where your workbench will live. You might also find it useful to draw a chalk outline on the floor.
It’s also important to consider other workbench accessories, such as:
· Lighting rails
· Support bars
With these additional accessories, it is possible to build a heavy duty workbench that will serve you well for a decade to come.
At the very least, you might like to consider a shelf and lighting rail. This will give you more storage space and help you work better indoors.
Most people who want a heavy-duty workbench with drawers also want a cupboard for storing larger items and shelves. Shelves and cupboards can be built into the workbench so everything you need is within one working area.
Overall, for small and large workshops, a heavy-duty workbench is perfect. Add drawers and it becomes one of the best investments you can make.
