Benching systems for efficient utilisation of space and clean design

One of the fastest growing applications in today’s office is benching systems. As the amount of space available for each employee in the office decreases, bench desks bring an element of flexibility to desks and their arrangement.

Benching systems for efficient utilisation of space and clean design

Versatility is essential when designing an office where you try to maximise space. What seems like a multi-decade trend is continuing to be a challenge for businesses. How do you get the most out of office spaces that seem to get smaller and smaller? 

According to figures published by CBS News, offices were expected to average 151 square feet (14 square metres) per employee in 2017 – a significant decline from 225 square feet (21 square metres) in 2010.

This is where benching systems come in. Benching systems connect what would have been two or more free-standing desks, and reduces the space wasted on wiring/cables, individual computer hubs, dividers, and even the space needed, for improved look, appeal and cleaning. 


Optimise the use of office space available

Bracketing desks together truly does seem to add more space for each employee. The industry has seen some truly unique designs with benching systems that support individual preferences while making communication and collaboration even easier. This also provides options that are ‘design forward’ and that often offer more privacy than standard desk open-design layouts do.


Adding more options for the desk user

You can add an even newer level of employee focused innovation, bringing movement to benching systems. With products like LINAK® DESKLIFT™ lifting columns, which offer bench brackets as an option, building sit-stand bench desks becomes much easier.

Using benching systems, interactions with the people around you are improved – and so is the connectivity of technology. With the newly freed space, you also have better methods of bringing cables together or providing single hubs for technology, unlike before where multiple cables were needed. 

If the bench desk is mobile, battery powered lifting columns can ensure that your desk area location is as flexible as possible. Allowing for continued sit-stand movement no matter where your benching system moves. 

All in all, you give office designers the freedom to create a more open and fluid arrangement with quality benching systems.
