Custom Consoles to promote latest SteelBase Security Control Desk and MediaWall at The Security Event

Custom Consoles has chosen The Security Event as the launch platform for the latest options in its SteelBase range of control desks. The company will be exhibiting on stand 3/F2 at the show which will be held in the Birmingham NEC, April 5th-7th, 2022.

Designed specifically for security and process control applications, SteelBase gives customers the option of specifying desks from a standard set of modules. The desks are built around a robust steel frame accommodating a ventilated PC storage compartment. Hinged removable access doors are located at front and rear.

Cable management is a central SteelBase design feature, including a removable worktop section with dual brush strips forming an uninterrupted cable exit for telephones, monitor cables and computer peripherals. Integral cableways allow heavy duty wiring to be fully concealed within the desk structure while retaining easy access for routine maintenance or adjustment. Cables can be routed laterally across and between bays as well as vertically to floor level. Internal 19-inch racking is available as a standard feature. Desktop equipment pods can be specified if required.

SteelBase desks are available in a choice of 120 cm (standard) or 100 cm (SteelBase Lite) front-to-back sizes with a choice of hard-wearing Marmoleum or laminate work surfaces. All elements are guaranteed against component failure for five years of normal use. The desks can be delivered in flat-pack form for easy assembly by the customer or by on-site installers.

Custom Consoles will also be promoting MediaWall which allows flat-screen monitor displays of practically any width to be constructed from standard horizontal and vertical support elements. It can be used as a fully self-supporting structure or coupled directly to a studio wall. Individual screens can be positioned so that the edges meet exactly to form a continuous horizontal display limited only by the boundary of the monitor panel itself. All wiring is fully concealed and can enter or leave the structure at any desired point. Media Wall is available in any specified element widths.

"SteelBase has proved highly successful in the security market for many years," comments Custom Consoles sales manager Gary Fuller. "A recent application was for one of the most prestigious museums in the Middle East. This project also includes a large MediaWall multiscreen video display mounting system and Ergotron desk-mounted monitor arms. Demand is also strong in the aviation sector, including a recently produced SteelBase main control desk for the Inverness Airport operations room."
