For research purposes, universities, scientific institutions, and other educational settings utilize various materials to help create and test projects. With money, time, and human resources dedicated to achieving goals and advancements, the academic sector is consistently on the brink of discovery and change. 

T-Slot in the Lab

Flexibility, adaptability, and modularity should describe materials and components used in research and educational initiatives. T-slotted aluminum extrusions meet the three above qualities as well as:

  • Easy to implement
  • Anti-corrosive
  • Can handle temperature
  • Customizable
  • Has a full line of accessories and hardware
  • Doesn’t require specialized tools or welding
  • Aesthetically pleasing

With t-slot profiles, a range of applications and solutions can be created to either assist or play an integral part in a research project. At Parco, we have various profile sizes, metric and fractional, that can suit any type of application such as lab tables, enclosures, robotic framing, testing bases, racks, carts, and more. 

We can create and design custom lab and research stations for any field of study, whether science, engineering, or medical. As for environments, t-slot can be used in or outdoors. 

Anodized aluminum has added protection against chemicals, salt water, oils, and UV rays. Also, aluminum is conductive. So, our profiles paired with the correct fasteners can provide a secure and electrically conductive connection. 

Beyond the Lab

Outside of research, universities, colleges, and corporate training departments can utilize t-slot for various purposes. Below are just a few ideas of how t-slot can be used in an educational environment.

  • Cabinets in classrooms
  • Office/Library shelving and seating
  • Light fixtures for dining halls and common areas
  • Architectural elements for visual appeal
  • Classroom communication boards
  • Partitions in testing areas
  • Outdoor dining and seating

T-slot is economical in the long term, which is beneficial when dealing with tight educational spending. From year to year, applications can be disassembled and stored for future classes. Ultimately becoming a sustainable teaching tool for years to come.

For individual research facilities and projects, t-slot offers the ability to be reconfigured if and when the project changes or grows. Parco offers a no minimum order policy and can help with your next project, large or small. 

Our Industry Knowledge

Our extensive industry knowledge paired with our profiles, hardware, and accessories that are fully compatible with other major t-slot brands, showcases innovation, helpful customer service, and short delivery times.

  • I use ALOT of these little anchor faster, every month. My regular vendor was out of stock, and so I found Parco and ordered from them. The fasteners arrived quickly, we're high quality, and they even worked with me on a bulk discounted price. 10/10 in all areas!!
