Science labs / workshops | Legrand United Kingdom

Science labs / workshops

Science labs and workshops are often places where students get to be creative and experiment, however, these spaces can present potential health and safety concerns. Considerations for these environments include trip hazards, increased exposure to differing environments and substances and the increased risk of a fire starting in these rooms.

Product considerations for science labs / workshops:

Robust equipment

Ensuring all cables are secured and out of the way of walkways to ensure trip hazards are minimised is an important consideration when creating a science lab or workshop. Within these spaces students are likely to be moving around more frequently as well as moving equipment and machinery. Our cable management products offer varying solutions to meet these needs.

Lighting control

Ensuring tailored lighting and control measures are in place in these spaces will ensure that the chances of accidents are reduced significantly. Controls can be utilised to ensure lighting is at the correct level and provide individual lighting for specific areas. Using the Vitesse Plus 7 system from CP Electronics offers ‘absence recovery’, so if the lights time out, we provide a 10 second action of presence detection. This removes the risk of people having to move (in the dark) towards the switch to reactivate the lighting.

Fire safety

The use of equipment such as Bunsen burners as well as potentially combustible materials being used gives greater chance of fire breaking out in science labs. Protecting the rest of the education facility from the spread of fire is imperative and will aid the safe evacuation of pupils and staff. Our EZ-path range is a fully compliant fire stopping solution for power and data cable management pathways and can offer up to 90 minutes protection from the spread of fire.

Education - Comfort and wellbeing of students and staff in education facilities, functional learning, lighting control


Comfort and well-being in becoming an increasingly important requirement when designing an education facility. The more the building can support functional learning the better the experience students will have.

Education - Sustainability constraints and Corporate Social Responsibility targets


In order to meet the strict sustainability targets imposed on the construction of schools and universities by government, we want to offer as much support as possible to help you understand and plan how to meet these targets.
