Computer Desks

By: Raylam
Computer furniture has evolved over the years. Improvements in the design and decor of computer desks have revolutionized the way people work at the computer. With the increase in the number of computer accessories, such as keyboard, mouse, and additional attachments like the printer, scanner, hard disks, modems, the allotment of space for all these accessories has become a challenge. Modern office furniture has to be modular, movable and flexible.

The backs of computer desks are open. This provision is made to pass the cables connecting the various parts of the computer. Some desks may have plywood at their backs, but there may be slots to pass the cables through them. The front of the desk can be locked, especially the compartment containing the keyboard and mouse so that no one may operate the computer without permission. Some desks have arrangements to lock the compartment containing the CPU in addition to the shelves for the keyboard and mouse.

Modular computers desks provide flexibility and versatility in use - they can be remodeled very easily depending on the use. These are ideal for the limited office spaces of today, and also work well in homes because they can be easily changed according to different requirements. Fittings are provided to accommodate various other accessories that may be required while using the computer, such as a document holder, wrist rest, file hangers, CD holders, or telephone shelf. Such desks are also often accompanied by a manual that contains comprehensive instructions for assembling or disassembling the unit. On the whole, computer desks today are leaner, and have fewer drawers and more shelf-space than before.

In most modern computer desks, the unique arrangement of the panel systems ensures optimum space, privacy and advanced wire management. The spine of the desk should be designed to not only provide power and data to the whole unit but also to support the desk assemblies, staking storage, divisional screens, transfer screens and other accessories. The end result is optimal space utilization.

A good idea is to have small wheels attached to the legs of the computer desks so that it may be moved from one place to another. Computer desks cannot be placed too close to the walls as space is required for the cables to pass.
