The Background Story

Our TUFF Storage Benches have been a popular workbench for customers who require a smart workbench with storage. We’ve always been proud of the high quality Beech worktop, available storage options and the rapid delivery time we offer for this range. HOWEVER, as we do with every range – we search for ways to improve!

The Challenge

We took our TUFF Storage Bench to the ‘Lab’ to analyse further. Our team felt that the quality of the workbench should match it’s performance. Although we’ve only ever received positive feedback on these workbenches – our team had two comments. The first was in regards to the sturdiness of the workbench. For general work use this isn’t noticeable but when the worktop was in persistent use – the bench seemed less robust. Partly due to any drawers or cupboards shaking from activity. The second was the load capacity capabilities of the bench – we want more! A 200kg UDL capacity workbench is great for average working requirements but the TUFF Storage workbenches were a bench made for all working requirements. The challenge became clear. The TUFF Storage Bench could be improved in two fields – strength and sturdiness. So our design engineers got to work…



The Result

The result? A newly designed workbench with a 750kg load capacity. With a design that means the bench’s storage cabinets would stay sturdy whilst the worktop was in use. As well as this we felt we could add more variation to the dimensions. So instead of our 1800 or 2000mm options, we’re making this available with 1400, 1600 and 2000mm widths. The storage options will remain the same. But perhaps the best news for our customers…the workbenches will now be available even cheaper than our Pre-2020 TUFF ones!


Releasing soon, the workbenches will be upgrading our current TUFF Storage Workbenches range. Keep your eyes peeled for this one.
