FortyO is a system of office furniture components which combine to create a multitude Single Desk and Bench Desking configurations and layouts. It allows you to tailor your office space specifically to meet your working needs and colour schemes. FortyO comprises of thousands of shapes, types, sizes, colours and textues of interchangeable and matching desk, storage, screen and table components to create the perfect office….. and all with an incredibly economical price tag!
The system is mainly based on rectangular workstations. These can be configured as solo desks or bench platforms which can be joined to form, within reason, any length and quantity of desk positions. The limiting factor is simply one of practicality – for example one must consider the need to move/shift furniture during office refurbishments (such as carpet tile fitting or decorating) and a bench that is too large or long will be too heavy to lift and shift. But, our bench desks are more economically priced (considerably so) than the solo desks and this is due wholly to the fact that fewer metal components are needed as legs and framework is shared. As standard the following worktop sizes are available in both solo desk and bench desking configurations:
Depth: 70cm and 80cm
Width: 120cm, 140cm, 160cm and 180cm
Crescent desks, often called corner desks, were a must-have in the days of large space consuming cathode-ray-tube computer monitors but have given way to smaller space efficient rectangular desks since the introduction of flat screen monitors. However, space permitting, they are still ideal for people who need larger work surfaces and, due to their shape, they are very ergonomic platforms to work from. These are available only as stand-alone workstations but can be placed together in clusters, as shown right, to create work pods. Given their large size and shape, we may see these making a comeback as one possible solution to distancing workers in the office.
Width: 140cm, 160cm and 180cm
Depth: 120cm (can be extended to 200cm with suspended return)
As shown below, FortyO worktops come factory finished with either a scallop shaped recess or a rectangular hatch, both for the purpose of feeding power and data cables from above the desktop to the floor below. A third available option is a plain desk top without apertures of any sort.
Our cable hatch is a very simple yet low cost and neat solution which fulfills 3 requirements. Firstly it provides a very generously sized hole through which cables of all sorts, together with their large UK sized plugs can be fed through with great ease. Secondly, it gives easy access to the cable management tray underneath the desktop which can save having to get down on one’s hands and knees to access cables. And finally, a basic power bar can be placed within the cable tray just below it so that users have instant access to plug in their mobile devices whenever they use the desk.
Choose from the range of FortyO specific plexiglass or fabric covered screens to add a dash of colour and privacy.
