What is a Workbench?

The clues in the name for this question! Workbenches are sturdy surfaces used in a wide range of industries; they’re designed to complete a job in a certain field of work in the most efficient way. Workbenches can be built with either metal or wood and there are many different types of them. Bespoke, ESD Ready, Packing, Heavy Duty, Mobile and Height Adjustable workbenches are just a few examples.


What are Workbenches used for?

This depends on which industry the workbench is used in. Typically, workbenches are used to complete manual work on and to store many tools and applications on the bottom shelf or in the drawers.
