Quartz Lab Surfaces
Grain Quartz Counters
Metrolabs Laboratory Furniture supplies labs with custom cut Quartz counters
made from edge grain maple. Quartz as a countertop
material is durable enough to withstand extremely physical or rough
experiments. The main benefit of this particular laboratory
countertop is its ability to undergo a lot of wear and tear while remaining
What Makes Edge Grain Maple Butcher Block Better
At Metrolabs, we use edge grain maple wood coated in Durakryl 102®.
This chemical is resistant to bleach, alcohol, and many other caustic substances.
While incredibly sturdy, it should be noted this material displays poor
chemical, heat, and moisture resistance. Since butcher block
is difficult to fully sanitize, it is not recommended for labs dealing with
a lot of bacterial samples or moisture. This should be taken into
consideration for more delicate experiments that may be better off with
steel, or the multi-purpose
epoxy resin countertops.
Butcher block is heavy and simple to repair. This makes it a favorite medium
for physical experiments where a great deal of cutting, smashing, or force
may take place. Edge grain maple makes for one of the sturdiest counter
materials available for laboratory work.
