The SCD Guide to Workshop Equipment


An organised workshop is an efficient, happy place for any worker. Whether your craft is industrial or just a hobby, organisation and application are essential for setting up any workshop environment. You need to consider lots of things before buying, such as how much space do you have? What is your budget? Will you benefit from wall-mounted or free-standing? It’s a constant toss-up between ease of access and making most of the space available to you.

 An excellent place to start is the piece of equipment you will be using the most, which is the workbench. The type of workbench that you require will depend on the kind of work that you do. It would be best if you considered certain factors of your work, such as using heavy items or carrying out heavy-duty tasks such as cutting and sanding, which would be better suited to a Heavy Duty Workbench that can withstand the daily pressure. On the other hand, you might carry out work in different areas of the workshop. In this scenario, a mobile workbench would be handy and give you flexibility and easy access to your tools. 

Once you’ve chosen your workbench, the next step we recommend focusing on is storage equipment! Storage is a crucial element for any workspace, as it provides allocated spaces for all your gear, making it easier to identify and locate what you need. An extensive range of equipment is available to help you achieve this at worXmart, ranging from storage cabinets, cupboards, tool racks, wall panels, and shelving dividers. The great thing about storage equipment is that you can quickly adapt it to your needs; for example, you may need more bin storage for small parts and tool equipment instead of many cabinets and shelving.

Storage units with trays or cupboards are the best option for safely storing small parts and tools while also keeping them organised. These types of units are typically free-standing for efficient access. Units that are mounted on wheels or casters are great for moving around the workshop when desired.

Suppose your work involves handling hazardous substances and materials. In that case, you will need to purchase suitable storage solutions to accommodate them to meet COSHH (Control of Substances Hazardous to Health) regulations. COSHH cupboards and storage facilities often have warning signs, colour-coded, and include information labels to specify what should or shouldn’t be stored inside.

Here at WorXmart, we can provide everything you need to get your workshop up and running in no time. With our industrial equipment and storage facilities and materials handling ranges, you can create a fully organised and easy to navigate workspace.
