Advantages and Features of Professional Technical Furniture

The specific charatceristics of professional technical furniture make this type of product the right solution for the specific needs of critical working environments.

Indeed, working environments such as Control Rooms and Control Centres have specific needs to guarantee the proper activity at workplace. Thus, there exist several properties of technical furniture which respond to the different requirements in those spaces.

Ergonomic Design

This is one the most relevant aspects for this type of product. In effect, the design of the furniture must contemplate the ISO11064:4 standards concerning the design and configuration of Control Rooms.

This normative establishes the ergonomic standards for the configuration of the workspace, including the work infrastructure. Among its values, a minimum free working area of 900mm deep must be allowed, also a 750mm free leg space or a standard 735mm worktop height.

To be compliant with these ergonomic regulations becomes a must-have differential asset to guarantee the right performance, comfort and ergonomics of the operator at workplace.

Manufactured in High-Quality Materials

Materials used in the manufacture of technical furniture differ from those used in other furniture type.

The use of compact laminate in high-pressure phenolic generally applies to the design of the work surface. Indeed, it is a non-rough material, avoiding any type of roughness in the working area. Likewise the phenolic is a non-porous material, preventing any kind of liquid leakage. Also, another differential aspect is based on the ability to avoid any lightning.

Hidden Cable Routing & Equipment Storage

Cable routing is an important aspect for the safety and protection of the installation. Specialized technical furniture ensures a proper cable management, while preventing any easy access inside. In the same way, the console can provide different cable routing paths as per each cable type.

On the other hand, this type of furniture also allows for the integration of active devices at the interior. Thanks to dedicated storing areas, the various devices will be safely housed close to the workplace, as well as having an easy front and rear access.

Height Adjustable Feature

One last features to be taken into account refers to height adjustable feature. Indeed, one of the contemporary requirements in terms of ergonomics refers to height adjustment of the worktop surface.

This is a differential aspect which provides several advantages in terms of health and well-being, not only in physical terms, but also regarding the emotional aspect of the operator.

Control Room Vertical Markets & Applications

Throughout our trajectory taking part in Control Room and Control Center projects we have been able to work closely with professionals from different market sectors. Effectively, each project has its own needs and features according its application.

The type of activity to be performed at site is a key aspect in the room configuration. Thanks to this we have learnt and assimilated a thorough know-how about most common needs in each sector.

Project-Base Approach: Each Project Is Unique

As professionals in the sector, we understand each project as a unique request with its own needs. Likewise those aspects are taken into account to meet the general foundations of a Control Room design.

In the same way at Ergovisual we have worked in a wide range of market sectors where technical furniture solutions are a common requirement.

Security and Monitoring

One of main activity type in which we are present are those installations dedicated to Security and Monitoring purposes. These are working environments with a minimum error margin.

At the same time, it can be essential the need to host equipment devices within the console with private area. For this reason, the technical furniture design contemplates the integration of such devices with an internal dedicated area with limited access.

Lastly, the manufacturing materials are of high-quality standards providing a remarkable robustness and stability for the whole console.

Process Control

This industry is pretty used to technical furniture requirements. Same as per previous case, those installations do not admit the minor error degree.

Another relevant aspect in those sectors refers to fluctant data processing and critical information. Indeed, the complete LundHalsey catalogue is conceived to allow all type screens configuration, thus reaching the best possible human-machine interaction.

Broadcast

Our partner LundHalsey has established as a leader manufacturer in technical furniture solutions for the Broadcast industry. With a global presence, we have worked, and still keep doing so, with top broadcasting companies worldwide.

This way, LundHalsey desks are provided with a dedicated Broadcast product line. This product range counts with the premium e-Type II console, and alternatively, the x-Type version. Its modular design allows clients to adapt future updates in the installation. Up to 100 different accessories are available for its integration.

Technical Furniture for Control Rooms

Specialized technical furniture is specifically conceived for its location in Control Rooms and Control Centers. Indeed, this refers to working environments with fluctuant information for quick decision-making processes in high pressures scenarios.

According to this premise, operator desks are especifically designed to achieve an optimal workplace.

Understanding the Workstation

The approach towards working places must be done in a comprehensive way, identifying the most important aspects which affect the proper daily activity of the operator. Among many aspects, we want to outline 4 key aspects to conceive an appropriate Control Room console.

Working Area

Just as the title indicates, the working area refers to the regular area where operator carries out its activity. This mainly occupies the working surface closest to human body, as well as those parts where frequently used accessories and equipment are allocated.

Therefore, the main worry concerning the working surface should be to guarantee a free, plan and accessible space for the operator. This way being able to carry out his working performance, or in case of using the equipment devices to access these with no major obstacle.

One last note in this regard refers to the Control Rooms ergonomic standards. These mark that a free area of minimum 750mm dedicated to operator working surface, as well as a minimum 800mm free leg space easing operator’s rotation at workplace.

Display Area

The dedicated space to locate screens and monitors is essential to understand contemporary Control Centers. Among its main characteristics, the most notable is the ease of integrating different types of supports: individual arms, dual arms, totem poles or rails. At the same time, it should also allow for highest flexibility to set screens position.

Another common point concerning screen and monitor concerns has to do with its accessibility. Cable routing for those displays is preferred to be as clean as possible and to be private thus avoiding any human access to it.

Cable Routing

Tables and desks for Control Rooms and Control Centers tend to store a large amount of equipment devices. This involves both all kind active devices such as computers, PDUs, and many others. Cable management must be clean and hidden to avoid connection obstacles while keeping away from any human intervention.

To do this, operator desks have several entry points at console feet, connected to through specific internally cable channels.

Storage Area

In this last point we highlight storage areas dedicated to equipment housing. To allow the correct operation in the room, consoles are provided with dedicated storage areas to house equipment, ranging from CPUs in different formats, KVM trays, rack units, PDUs, among others.

Thus, these devices will be hosted in those specific areas with restricted access to its interior, providing more security to the installation.

Key factors to understand Control Rooms

With more than 20 years of experience in the Control Room market, at Ergovisual we have worked in plenty of diverse project for these kind of installations. This grounding enables us to understand the importance of considering several key aspects in the development of Control Rooms.

A Definition for Control Rooms

The type of activity to be carried out in the installation will be decisive in our approach towards the project. However, there exist many more aspects to be taken in consideration for the Control Room configuration.

A general definition that can collect its general significance may refer to those critical installations with sensible information fluxes for quick decision-making processes under pressure scenarios.

Room Distribution

An accurate distribution of the room spaces must consider several aspects, ranging from the number of operators, the type of equipments and accessories to be integrated as well as lightning. Further to this, the type of activity to be carried out will be also important.

On the other side, it is important to identify the tasks and functions of each operator in the room, the degree of interaction between them, as well as the human-technology interaction.

All these aspects must be taken into account from a comprehensive approach with the purpose to reach the best possible distribution.

Decision-Making Processes

A common feature in Control Rooms refers to the fact these are spaces aimed at decision-making processes. Indeed, every sector will be dedicated to a specific professional activity, nevertheless each operator decisions will be affecting the activity operation.

In effect, taking decisions entail the risk of error. For this reason, the design of the Control Room, in its whole extension, must needs to favour the minimisation of human and technologic error in benefit of the activity. This concerns not only the operator, but also the technologic devices.

High Pressure Scenarios

In line with the above, consequences derived from decision-making can involve pressure scenarios.

In face of these situations, the Control Room design should consider an appropriate integration of equipment devices aimed at mitigating the pressure degree of operators. All this in regards to benefits that afford better emotional and physic conditions in decision-making.

Information Processing

A last notable aspect in this kind of installations concerns information and data processing. Permanently, operators receive the feedback of fluctuant information which needs to be quickly understood and processed.

Mostly, information and data is shared via monitor screens and displays located at working surface near operator or in common videowall schemes. Therefore, it will be crucial to know the type of information applicable for each operator according to its function and, eventually, improve information processing.

In conclusion, there are several and diverse aspects to be considered to achieve best possible working space.
