Winsted Design of the Month: Command Center with Two Sit/Stand Operator Stations

A security integration partner contacted the MidChes team to create two unique designs for a command center with two sit-stand operator stations.  The two designs would allow the integrator's customer to pick the design that meets operational and space requirements.

Additionally, the console was required to house racked equipment in the center of the console, between the two operators. 

Let's take a closer look at the project details...


Getting Started

In this case, the integrator provided basic measurements of the space and desired furniture arrangement. 



Two customized designs were created using free DIY design software, WELS, from Winsted. The Impulse Dual Sit/Stand console bases were selected for the project. They consist of standard size bases featuring Safeguard Edge work surfaces. The base included space for racked equipment.

Each work surface adjusts from 30” to 46” high at the touch of a button. Both work surfaces are controlled by two electric-lift legs with three programmable height settings. The dual work surfaces feature a durable, high-pressure laminate with Safeguard Edge. For added versatility, all Impulse consoles come complete with Winsted's innovative Versa-Trak monitor mounting system.
