Metal, Wood or Laminate?
LET YOUR APPLICATION DRIVE THE DECISION AND GUARDIAN DESIGN YOUR DREAM
Metal Modular Casework - For many years, metal cabinets were found in both the laboratory and pharmacy. They are highly durable and moderately priced.
Wood Modular Casework - Slightly less expensive than metal but still highly durable. Occasional moist environments can be tolerated with the newer protective coatings for today's wood products.
Plastic Laminate Modular Casework - These can now be found in laboratory as well as pharmacy. Laminate presents a warm, less clinical appearance and less expensive than metal or wood.
All the above from Guardian are considered "manufactured casework" vs.. custom or milled casework. Manufactured casework is used in technology settings where equipment or staffing requires occasional changes to the casework or design of the space itself. One simple change in a department can pay for the original difference in price between manufactured and custom casework.
Counter-top material is critical, whatever the setting and Guardian can provide the appropriate counter, no matter what the material. Solid surfaces should be considered in USP 797 environments and epoxy or similar for chemical working purposes.
Guardian brings years of experience and a vast array of different materials to guarantee you will have the best product at the right price.
