The Mimic Control Desk system is an aluminium extrusion system designed to manufacture a wide range of products, including consoles, desks, wall-mount enclosures, and floor-standing enclosures. The consoles, desks and enclosures are all custom-built to the customer’s requirements and specifications, i.e. the shape, size and colour are all decided and approved by the customer. The designs can either be supplied by the customer, or our in-house design team can create a design to accommodate the customer’s needs. The products are assembled as a space-frame with “captured” infill panels. The space-frame is bolted together with high tensile grub-screws in such a way that all threads are bearing on steel and never on the softer aluminium frame. This construction technique is far stronger than wood joints and ensures a long-life, rigid structure. The system is 19” rack compatible. It is modular and can be disassembled for shipping and delivery and can also be extended and modified for future growth.
A wide range of colours and finishes are available for both the space-frame and infill panels. This variety of options is guaranteed to satisfy even the most meticulous customers. The final products have an attractive finish and are suitable for both the commercial and industrial environments. They also stand up extremely well in those environments, compared to veneered chipboard alternatives.It is important to establish the required access to the console/desk being designed, before it is manufactured. The system has a unique advantage when consoles/desks have to fit against walls or in corners of rooms. Front or side access can easily be achieved.
Another important factor is the available access to the room where the console/desk will be installed. Sometimes, where there is only a single door access, the product needs to be split/disassembled to get in to the room. This is an important factor during design.
