Four Reasons Why You May Want Industrial Workbenches At Your Construction Site

Posted on

Construction sites generally do not use workbenches. There really is not much use for them, or is there? Actually, with industrial workbenches, there are plenty of reasons why you would want them at your work site.

To Organize Tools

Many hand tools are needed at most construction sites. Rather than leave these tools laying around, the industrial benches can sit near your construction trailer and keep the tools organized and in one place. Even handheld power tools have places on an industrial workbench because these workbenches have special open drawer/cupped spaces in which tools like a drill or staple gun can be shelved and stored.

Store Dozens of Different Kinds of Fasteners and Wiring

Industrial workbenches are designed to hold thousands of fasteners, spools of wires, and anything else needed to  assemble projects. If you do not want to store these items out in the open, create a work cage, then line the walls of the work cage with the workbenches. Then store and organize all fasteners and spools of wiring in and on the workbenches.

If you really want things well-organized, then arrange benches, drawers, storage cups, and supplies from smallest supply items to largest (just like the drawers in a hardware store). That way, crew members can walk into the work cage, walk to the workbench that has exactly the right size fastener or gauge of wire, grab what they need without making a mess, and walk back out.

Work Surfaces for Small Things

Sometimes you just need a work surface for small things, and that particle board sheet on top of two sawhorses is not going to cut it. Anything that needs to be welded would cause a fire. However, if your welder had an industrial  workbench on which to work and weld small things, that would be ideal. An industrial workbench is and always has a metal tabletop surface because of the amount of soldering and welding being done in industrial settings. Additionally, any small items that need cutting, drilling, or sanding can also be completed on the tabletop surface of an industrial workbench.

These Benches Disassemble/Reassemble Quickly and Are Very Portable

If you need another reason for incorporating an industrial workbench (or two, three, or six!) into your job sites, you  should know that these benches are extremely lightweight and very portable. They can be disassembled and reassembled quickly as well. Buy and try one to see how you like them, and then buy as many as you like.
