Saturn and Mercury School Science Laboratory Furniture

Located in Leamington, UK, Kingsley School as had an excellent reputation for high academic standards and first-class pastoral care for 133 years.

As part of their aims “to create an environment where the educational process is enjoyable and valued” and “to foster creativity” the School’s 4 laboratories and 1 prep room will be refurbished this summer such as to reflect their philosophy.

The labs share a re-circulatory Mobiline fume cupboard that can be connected to the docking stations fitted to science workstations and then can be housed out of the way when not in use.

The Preparation Room has an environmental friendly ducted Ecoline fume hood, vented to atmosphere, suitable for heavy and aggressive extended usage.

The worktops are Polylab and Trespa Toplab Base with corian and cast epoxy sinks.

The chosen colours are Speckled Silver Grey for worksurfaces that create a visual feeling of light and space with accents of greys on door fronts and drawers.
