Plan your office move like a pro

 

Depending on the office-move, we sometimes work via architects and designers but most furniture packages on refurbishments or new builds are taken out of the construction brief and handled by the client directly with us. This usually offers savings of at least 10-20% of costs and can be much more significant. It also offers an opportunity to create a much more tailored result by having a shorter chain discussion.

What the 21st Century office of the future looked like in the 1960s

1960

 

We’re used to hearing people predict what The Office of the Future will look like. It’s been going on for a very long time now and each new generation of commentators on the subject comes up with its own forms of wishful thinking, wild generalisations, distorted conclusions and failures to account for the inherent unknowability of future disruptive technology. The best way of reminding ourselves of these pitfalls is not to look forward, but back. Only then  can we see how an image can be refracted and make allowances.

Staying “cool” with ABL UK

The glorious British summer is here; it’s hot, cold, wet and windy but we all love the long days and summer holidays. The exceptional heat wave we’ve been experiencing has caused some uncomfortable working temperatures, leaving workers up and down the country looking for ways to cool down.

Generally, offices will blast the air conditioning, but this isn’t always the right way, as all employees like to work under different temperatures which is why “on desk” fans are in. On desks fans can be found in many offices, there a great tool to stay cool without affecting your office neighbours.
Desk fans can be battery, mains or USB powered and it is important to consider how the fan will be powered and used before purchasing.  Batteries will need replacing often, especially if the fan is in constant use, so it might be worth investing in rechargeable versions or investing in a USB or mains-powered fan.
Mains powered fans may be able to plug into a desktop power module which allows easy access to plug sockets, without the need to reach under your desk. ABL power modules can be supplied with either 3.15 or 5 amp fused sockets, so check the fuse requirements of your fan before plugging it in – this can usually be found on the plug and we also provide a standard fuse requirement guide below.
If your fan is rated higher than your power module socket, it will need to be plugged directly into the mains supply.
USB powered fans can utilise the Smart Charge component of an ABL power module.  Simply plug your fan into the charging device as you would a mobile phone and turn it on with no need to worry about overloading the socket.
As a rule, any item of equipment rated in excess of 5 Amp, MUST have a separate power supply, therefore items such as Vacuum Cleaners, Kettles, Coffee Makers and Fan Heaters should not be connected via these power modules.
ABL power modules have been designed to facilitate the needs of the office including configurations to charge devices such as phones, tablets and laptops. Whilst additional items such as desk fans can be plugged into modules, it always best to check the Amp usage before plugging in.
If you would like to hear more information on Amp usage, feel free to call our friendly sales team on +44 (0) 1933 400 080 or click here.
