Why Symbiote?

30 Years Strong: Value + Service 

We shop for the same things...capabilities, quality, cost. But, there’s more to consider. Do you feel like a valued customer? You can read about Symbiote’s 30+ year company history and lab design services but our relationships are the reason we keep doing what we do.

We Make Furniture for Workplaces Beyond the Office

Labs exist beyond office areas and this is where Symbiote furniture fits. This includes product development, research and production prototyping. Smart lab designs feature quality furniture that meets your needs for a particular process. Traditional office spaces provide common features for end users such as a desk, chair and computer. Beyond these core elements, you will also need specific power, weight loads and utility connections.

Top 5 Questions Answered about Symbiote Lab Furniture

  1. Have you ever done architectural work/projects? Yes, 50 percent of the time, under division 11 and 12.
  2. How do you integrate with equipment/other systems that are not off the shelf or have a point of connection, i.e. cabinetry, cutting a hole for a sink? All products or custom integrations are laid out on .dwg base plans. 
  3. What weight load can your products support? Typical benches support 500-750 lbs. and electric benches lift 750 lbs. Loads are calculated using uniform, dynamic and static loads, which vary from component loading to maximum loads, up to 2,000 lbs.
  4. What is the typical termination module for meeting the ground? How low? Our ground point for an ESD ground is a serrated ground stud on the rear right corner of the carbon-layered work surface. It connects to the ground point on our plug strip which contacts earth ground through the electrical receptacle.
  5. Can you do custom widths, lengths, depths? Yes. Custom products are Symbiote’s core competency.
