Within a carved span of time, Computers have carved out a niche in the history of mankind and changed the entire gamut of human life at an overwhelming pace. Be it business, academics, defence strategy, budgeting research, engineering, medicine, space exploration, communication, travel and hospitality, utilities, or designing, Computers have established themselves as an indispensable part and so also the computer furniture. Some commonly used computer furniture are Computer Tables, Computer-cum-Printer tables, Printer Tables, Computer Chairs with or without arms, Computers Chairs with or without coaster wheel base etc.

Market Potential

The market demand for Computer furniture is increasing day by day with the increase in use of the Computers. Computer furniture has got domestic as well as export market. Long sitting hours on Computers has necessitated the use of computer furniture such as table and chair having proper dimensions and specifications. Computer tables are designed in such a way so as to accommodate Monitor, CPU, Key Board and other peripherals etc. with the optimum utilization of horizontal and vertical space. Care is also given to provide sufficient leg space, free hand movement for operating mouse, etc. Care is also taken in designing and manufacturing Computer chairs to suit the computer table. Long sitting hours on computer clubbed with improper spinal support on chair have become the major cause for backache to many Computer users. Computer furniture manufacturers are bringing out innovative changes to cope with this problem. Computer furniture is being mainly used in Offices, Computers Training Institutes, Laboratories, Schools, Colleges, and Homes.

Technical Aspects

Process of Manufacture

(I) Computer Tables: The Computer table shall be fabricated in knock-down design for easy assembly and transportation. The base frame shall be made of hollow rectangular Mild Steel Section of 50 mm × 25 mm × 1.2 mm thickness by cutting in desired sizes and welding the sections. The open edges of base frames are protected by PVC cover. Level Adjusters are mounted suitably at the bottom edges of base frame. The vertical frame for holding table top and shelf, shall be made out of 25 mm × 25 mm × 1.2 mm thick hollow MS Square Section. The space between vertical frames shall be covered by 1 mm thick steel CRC Sheet. All steel sections shall be protected by powder coated paint after following proper pretreatment. The table top and shelf shall be made of pre-laminated medium density fibre board of 18 mm thickness of interior grade having teak/gray/oak or any other shades specified by the customer. The edges of table top, shelf etc., all shall be rounded or tapered.

Printer Table does not have any drawer/shelf etc., whereas the computer table shall have a suitable drawer for key board made of 18 mm of one side prelaminated medium density board. Below the drawer, the provision is made for sliding board of 9 mm thickness and width 300 mm which can be taken out on either side upto approximate 225 mm for placing the mouse and pad. The table shall also be made with the provision of lockable drawer adjacent to the Key Board drawer, of appropriate size. One shelf of 18 mm of one side prelaminated MDF having a gap of 450 mm from the drawer shall also be provided for holding CPU, UPS, etc.
