Harry Helmet has established itself as the largest U.S. dealership of the Gutter Helmet® roof protection system. Family owned and operated, the Helmets came to us looking for new or used office furniture in Maryland for their HQ in the suburb of Millersville.
They were really interested in our Optima collaborative workstations. These office bench workstations are a simple system of work surfaces supported with post legs, and low 39”H cubicle panels with integrated power, topped with 14” high frosted glass mullions for some added style & sneeze protection.
To best fit the space available and the type of work being done, we custom designed these Optima workstation desks to have extra deep 60”W x 30”D worktop surfaces with a factory cut wire management channel that your IT department will be thankful for. They’re also specified with a 3-drawer mobile pedestal file cabinet with cushion “seat” topper, ideal for impromptu flyby meetings with the boss-lady.
Our office space planner configured the 18 seats into clusters of 6, each with a highly economical footprint of 63.5” W x 181” L. After factoring in additional seating and office circulation space requirements you have successfully accommodated 6 workers into an area of about 40 sq. feet per person.
Gutter Helmet’s operation center is on the 2nd floor of a 2-story factory/warehouse building, with no elevator. This meant that the components of their new benching furniture needed to be carried up the stairs by our delivery crew. Office furniture delivery and assembly requiring a stair carry is never easy – but nevertheless, we persist!
Fortunately like most modular office furniture, an office benching system is made up of individual, relatively manageable parts and pieces, rather than a singular, heavy piece of furniture. So as long as we allotted for a little extra delivery time (and cost), it was just another typical day in the world of office furniture.
