T-Slot Lab and Medical Tables
Industrial Lab and Medical Tables
Lab and medical tables are not constructed like other tables. They have specific tasks in the fields of science and medicine. Experiments and certain processes must utilize the correct tools, and maintain a clean environment – especially when it comes to tables, benches, and workstations.
No matter the industry, Parco can create a lab or medical table solution to suit your application needs. All of our tables and workstations are ergonomic, modular, and designed for comfortability, functionality, and productivity. We can customize any lab table, but also have the following pre-engineered solutions available:
We have packaging options that include kit form, pre-assembled, and fully assembled. For our kit and pre-assembled solutions, you will receive a tag drawing to assist with assembly. Fully assembled solutions will arrive completely assembled and ready for installation.
We offer custom-made solutions so you can receive the t-slotted lab or medical table you need for your application. Some of our options include:

FOOTRESTS: Adjustable, Plate, and Free Standing
POWER OUTLETS: 15 and 20 amps
Lab and medical tables should be of high quality, and capable of carrying out tasks with precision. T-slotted aluminum has been used in a variety of scientific and medical industries for quite some time. From its modularity to its strength, t-slot lab and medical tables give a needed platform to carry out work as well as storage. Several types of lab and medical tables are:
- Shipping Tables
- Ergonomic Tables
- Inspection Tables
- Packaging Tables
- Laboratory Tables
- Presentation/Display Tables
- Assembly Tables
- Adjustable Height Tables
- High Capacity Tables-2,000-3,000 lbs.
To ensure a table for any setting is capable of functioning in precision-demanding work environments, they must be designed to cater to the application’s exact requirements.
From adjustable heights to lifts, casters, or fume filters, lab and medical tables are never considered regular tables. Below we will go over the specifics of these tables and why one made from t-slotted aluminum extrusion is an optimal choice.
Specifics of Laboratory and Medical Tables
In the fields of medicine and science or any field that requires precision work, it is necessary to level the eye. This is especially true with microscopes. When a table is placed in an environment that requires this, it will need to be capable of adjusting for the varying heights of people using it. To adjust the height, adjustable feet are placed in the bottom of the table’s legs and can be manually adjusted.
The utilization of a lift allows a tabletop to lift to perform the task. Whereas adjustable height tables are adjusted from the bottom, a lift table will raise and lower, usually with the aid of a motor or simple hydraulics. These types of tables serve as smooth, sturdy work surfaces for examination and inspection.
Various laboratory and medical tables are designed with functional storage space. Generally, a basic table will feature a shelf for tools, chemicals, or specimens. Storage for lab and medical tables can also include doors with locks to secure items that are not in use.
Depending on the kind of work and materials that will be used, the tabletop’s surface will need to be capable of withstanding harsh chemicals or toxins. Surfaces should also be easily cleanable and not harbor germs. Phenolic surfaces are the choice for environments utilizing standard chemicals. A table for regular lab use can utilize epoxy resin due to its resistance to moisture, regular chemicals, and heat.
Control Fume Emissions
Lab and medical tables should have filters to control fume emissions. Emissions from gaseous, liquid, or solid chemicals must be controlled with fume hoods and filters to prevent injury or death.
Apart from the above, there are several other benefits to these tables, especially when made with t-slotted aluminum extrusions. Modular table frames made with aluminum are easily designed and customized, corrosion-resistant, and easy to configure and install.
