Security services provider chooses Custom Consoles for control desk

August 31, 2023

Custom Consoles has revealed that it has completed a control desk for Opem Security, a provider of security systems and services.

Located at Opem’s headquarters in Milton Keynes, the SteelBase control desk will form part of the round-the-clock monitoring support Opem performs for clients in many locations.

“We were looking for a robust and ergonomically well designed desk that would allow our staff to work comfortably and efficiently,” said Opem Founder and Managing Director Jason Pelham.

“SteelBase gave us the freedom to specify exactly what we had in mind from a standard range of structural components, including integral accommodation for our computer equipment and video monitor displays.

“Custom Consoles’ experience and industry background are evident in the styling and build quality. They can also be seen in the attention to details such as cable management with easy access during initial installation and throughout the desk’s lifetime.

“Our operators also appreciate being able to position the horizontal and vertical angle of the monitor screens to suit their preferred viewing angle, each screen being mounted on an individually adjustable mounting arm.”

Control desks

“This is the most recent of many SteelBase installations we have produced for clients in the security, aviation and industrial process control sectors,” added Custom Consoles Sales Manager Gary Fuller.

“Working alongside Opem, we designed a 5m wide curved unit comprising seven bays. Each bay has its own front and rear doors and provides vented space for a computer as well as accommodation for up to 6U of rack-mounted technical equipment.

“The desktop is 1.2m in front-to-back depth and incorporates a continuous cable tray running the entire desk width, protected by an easily removable flush-fitting cover panel. Mounting points for data and power sockets are provided in each PC compartment.”

According to Custom Consoles, its SteelBase control desks and related fittings such as equipment pods and side units can be specified and combined from a range of standard powder-coated steel base frames.

Cable management is provided throughout the console with access to equipment via hinged removable doors to both front and rear.
