Q: I / or my customer wants to carry out welding work on a steel top workbench, is it possible to have a non-galvanised top?
A: Yes. JAS Engineering standard galvanised tops are made from 2mm galvanised steel sheet but if we are advised that the steel top will be used for welding, we fit a 3mm black steel top for the same price. We do of course need to be advised on the order.
Q: What is the gap between the bottom shelf and worktop on the mobile workbenches?
A: The gap between the bottom shelf and worktop is 610mm.
Q: Will my workbench support powered machinery?
A: JAS Engineering workbenches can be used to support machinery assuming it is within the UDL weight limit of the workbench. Please note the vibration of machines sometimes make it necessary, depending on the weight of the machine and the amount of vibration, to reduce the specified UDL of a workbench. Powered machinery must not be used on a steel topped only workbench. All powered machinery must only be located either on a 45mm solid wood worktop or a steel worktop on top of 45mm solid wood. If in doubt please contact us.
