A reliable steel workbench is always a great tool to have in any kind of lab or work bench. Plastic surface, veneer, or wood work benches often dent or develop divits over time. Further, wood can aborb liquids, creating a contaminated surface, not the sort of thing one wants for a clean work surface.
With the steel workbench a user has a surface that provides easy cleaning and it can be sanitized easily. Further, the steel surface can be very durable, withstanding all sorts of impacts and exposures from burns to chemical exposures to impacts without being compromised. When it comes to a construction surface, the ideal situation is a table that won't start to create issue when things really start happening with a project or a new experiment.
