What Makes Air Traffic Control Furniture Unique?

With the 24/7 nature of an Air Traffic Control (ATC) room, console furniture for the space must meet a range of high specifications. Over recent years, there have been huge advances made to technology within the sector, which should be reflected in the furniture used to house technology. Controllers should be comfortable and able to easily access equipment. At Knotty Ash Woodworking, we’re proud to be at the forefront of aviation control room furniture, working alongside our clients to produce bespoke consoles that are designed for intensive use.


High Quality, Durable Materials


In comparison to regular desks, control room consoles need to be built to withstand the test of time. Here at Knotty Ash, our custom furniture is always built with quality and durability in mind. Using sustainably sourced timber veneers combined with impact-resistant laminate finishes, we manufacture furniture specifically designed for heavy use in ATC rooms, that can endure constant wear and tear.


Comfort and Practicality


As air traffic control operators have a critically important job to keep people safe, it’s important to that they are comfortable whilst on the job. Monitors and equipment should be kept at an optimal level, with height adjustable options. With the nature of ATC work, shift rotations mean that multiple people will work at the same station through the week, so furniture should be adaptable to suit all.


Customisable Wall Display Systems


At the centre of every air traffic control room are the displays. At Knotty Ash Woodworking, we recognise that every control room is different, which is why our Pro Display Monitor Wall System can be configured to fit a range of different LCD and plasma screens. These can be placed on a flat wall or in a curved view around your custom console, to give controllers a comprehensive view at all times.
