Custom Consoles Module-R Desks Chosen By Arqiva

A leading broadcast and communications network provider, Arqiva, has chosen Custom Consoles furniture and monitor support equipment for the digital terrestrial television (DTT) multiplex control room at its broadcast media centre near London's Heathrow airport.
The new installation includes a five-unit curved Master Control Room desk and dual-unit in-line Engineering desk, both from the Custom Consoles Module-R range.
Twelve Ergotron adjustable LCD monitor arms have also been supplied, mounted along the rear edge of the MCR desk.
A further six Ergotrton arms are similarly located on the Engineering Desk. Both desks incorporate cable ducts carrying data to and from the computer-floor via high-strength profiled metal legs.
Justin Godson, Head of DTT Baseband Networks at Arqiva, said: "Custom Consoles' Module-R series was a logical choice for this project. Besides being robustly built and attractively styled, it gives us a high level of freedom to reconfigure or expand the desks in line with Arqiva's evolving business.
The contract also included matching Custom Consoles cladding for a group of four wall-mounted 67 inch Christie rear-projection picture display monitors positioned in front of the engineering desk."
Gary Fuller, Custom Consoles Sales Manager, said: "Module-R continues to be one of our most successful product ranges. It allows technical furniture to be produced to practically any dimensions without the expense of bespoke designs."
A select-and-combine control room furniture system, Custom Consoles' Module-R product range offering aesthetically pleasing design as well as high durability.
Robust, efficient and attractive control-room desks can be produced to meet specific needs from a selection of high-quality pods, base sections, 19 inch rack housings, worktops end-panel modules and legs.
Module-R desk pods are available as single-bay sections with up to 10 U chassis capacity. Cabinet construction is in high-quality veneered MDF. Other features include continuous brush-strip cable access to front workshops. Recent additions to the range include new 19 inch rear-desk equipment pods, new front-access panels with increased ventilation and optional hardwood worktop edging.
