Frames & Benches

The laboratory bench forms the foundation of any laboratory; our benches are designed to be highly stable, with an uncomplicated design and a timeless appearance. Our standard ranges of colours have been chosen to look good in any laboratory, but any colour is available by special request. We provide a range of high quality worktop choices that can be paired to the selected frame design to suit the specific application.

Our frame designs have been optimised to withstand heavy loads using sophisticated FEA tools to ensure rigidity and strength. The robot welded construction using 1.2mm thick mild steel provides seamless joins and is zinc phosphated prior to being epoxy powder coated ensure not only the best possible finish but also provides significant corrosion resistance and longevity, ensuring that your laboratory remains looking like new for years. All our frames are equipped with levelling legs to facilitate installation on uneven floors.


A C-Frame is the perfect choice when operator clearance is required below the work surface. The C-Frame consists of 2 C shaped legs with extra reinforcing in the corners for rigidity and 3 connecting horizontal members.


The H-Frame is used when heavier loads are required or to suspend our Frame Mounted Cabinets. The frames can be specially reinforced for heavier loads.

Modular Frames

The SBT A-Frame is designed to provide both excellent stability and strength while allowing the system to be reconfigured to suit any new laboratory layout simply by changing the horizontal supporting bars.

Balance Tables

The SBT manufactures a range of standard size balance tables which are manufactured with a rigid, fully welded frame, vibration damping foam and a flat polished 50mm granite surface to provide stability suited to most weighing or high magnification microscope applications.
