The Right Dispatch Console for Your Control Room
A dispatch console is primarily associated with 911 emergency services. However, it is also widely used for surveillance rooms, air traffic control centers, space stations, utilities, and security agencies. Understandably, the needs of each operation are varied and a control room furniture manufacturer must be capable of providing designs for specific applications. For this reason buying pre-fabricated dispatch furniture that doesn’t exactly meet your expectations should be avoided.
Custom dispatch furniture is decidedly functional and comfortable, which is exactly what helps an operator work efficiently. Ideally, such consoles should allow you to upgrade them in size and amenities as requirements change. For example, you could add accessories such as ergonomic lifts for sit-stand or integrate book storage. A manufacturer that can provide furniture that meets your specifications is the best choice.
In this article, we’ll discuss popular dispatch console types used for different applications and in different venues. They are:
Concentric Arc workstation: This particular dispatch workstation features concentric arc styling for base and desktop. If you need to accentuate it further, you could add a concentric steel slat wall for attaching equipment arms, or add drawers and storage enclosures for CPUs. The size of this workstation can also be altered depending on available space.
120 Degree workstation with custom logo panels: The custom logo panels are an exclusive feature, and they are best suited for government, police and military establishments. This particular workstation is fashioned on the lines of a cockpit. The curvature of the console helps you save space, and you could opt for a deeper curve if you wish. This workstation is available with a sit-stand version that adjusts smoothly and safely.
Split-level workstation with programmable control for sit-stand: With this dispatch console, the desktop space for monitor and keyboard operate separately. The workstation can be accessed from the front and rear. Fitted with lifting motors and ample storage, it meets most of the functional requirements for most applications.
90 Degree workstation with manual keyboard height adjustability: The 90-degree curvature helps to create a separate space for the operator in which to function. This modular workstation can be made to your specifications in shape and size. It can also be fitted with ergonomic monitor arms and other amenities.
These are just a few of the most popular dispatch console models used by Fortune 500 companies, national space stations, global manufacturing firms and government agencies. By opting for a fully customizable control room console, your operators will be more comfortable and productive when working under pressure for long periods of time.
Though quality should certainly be the deciding factor when selecting a dispatch console, remember to consider other aspects such as cost and functionality. Emergency operators often work “on the edge”, and providing them with the right dispatch furniture is imperative to their effectiveness and longevity on the job.
