X-Range Bench Desks

X-Range Bench is immensely strong and stable despite its elegant lines. The structure was developed from a special table Sven designed for the Bodleian Library, which had to support metre-high stacks of books.

We combined this frame concept with ‘power towers’ to provide outstanding cable handling and even greater stability and subsequently added a choice of leg frame designs to further expand the range’s appeal. X-Range bench has become a market leader and is widely specified on projects of all sizes, up to and including the very largest installations.

Easily convert bench desk runs for enhanced social distancing (see details below).




X-Range Bench is offered with either fixed or sliding 800mm MFC and tactile 3D. Sliding tops provide more convenient access to the rigid wire mesh cable trays set underneath. Cables are routed from floor level up through the power towers and into the cable trays, then onto the desk tops either via the back edge of the top of through cable ports set into each top at both sides. Routing cables is fast, simple and requires no tight bends – crucial for the latest generations of data cables. From 1000mm to 2000mm wide, X-Range Benches may be either double or single-sided, to ensure that maximum use can be made of available space.


Leg frame options

Leg frame options comprise the standard frame (D-section tubular legs of the original design) plus rectangular, square and A-frame designs. All are available finished in Black, White, Slate and Zinc.


Add-on module

There is no limit to the overall length of a bench: add-on modules can be inserted to achieve any desired size. Standard top height is 735mm with fixed tops or 741mm with sliding tops. Height adjustment kits (increasing top height by 25mm – 40mm) are available for fixed-top benches.


End-desk module


Complete any length X-Range Bench desk run with a matching 'integral' 1600mm Supervisor/Manager workspace option.



Runs of double-sided bench desks can now be separated into pairs, and runs of single bench desks into individual desks.

Quick-fit component kits available.

QSPA and QPAD dividing screens are either 340mm or 465mm high. QSPA screens have an extruded aluminium frame and an upholstered or frosted Acrylic core. 

QPAD screens are 26mm thick, fully upholstered, and designed to be specified 400mm shorter that the X-Range Bench desk to which they are fitted, providing privacy and division while maintaining collaborative openness. Supplied with clamp brackets (for fixed top single-sided bench and freestanding individual desks) or a mounting rail (for double-sided bench desks). QPAD not compatible with sliding tops.

If dividing screens are not required benches may be specified with flush abutting tops.

Side extensions (available with fixed tops only) may be added to create L-shape workstations. Single-sided benches may optionally be fitted with modesty panels.


Bench desk storage

Mobile pedestals for bench desks in MFC are offered in three variants: 645mm high with two drawers and a filing drawer, in both 431mm (standard) and 320mm (narrow) widths, and 490mm high with one drawer and a filing drawer. Steel 645mm high mobile pedestals offer two small drawers and one filing drawer, and are available in 300mm and 390mm wide.

Add top-fixed slimline drawers for discreet and practical under-top storage. For more storage solutions, see Storage and HiStore.


NEW Mobile Low Storage Unit

538mm high and 525mm deep this low mobile storage and drawer unit comes in two variants: a small open-front cupboard with adjustable shelf or a small locking tambour cupboard. Both include a drawer and filing drawer. Optional upholstered cushion offers additional touchdown seating.


Top-fixed Storage

Keep your Bench worktop clear, and stationery and small items conveniently to hand with ultra slimline tray drawers designed specifically to fit to the underside desk tops.

At a compact 43mm high, these discreet and practical storage drawers clear any under-desk structures and maximise legroom wherever they are positioned along the length of the desk or table.

Both the pen tray and wider tray drawer are finished in White, and come complete with a Black six-section insert to compartmentalise the contents.


X-Range Meeting and Conference Tables

X-Range offers a wide choice of tables from 800 x 800mm and 800mm diameter up to 5000 x 1200mm on either standard legs, X or Y-base frames. The larger (conference) tables are offered in rectangular, bow-end and barrel shapes and fitted with an inset “third leg” at each end to ensure the stability for which X-Range is renowned. Cable ports can be fitted into the tops in combination with optional cable trays to provide simple but practical cable management.


X-Range Desks

Frame and Panel Options: cable management


X-Range desks are available on panel ends and metal frame. The metal frame features two uprights and the option to incorporate cable risers in matching Black, White, Slate or Zinc.Optional cable trays, which fit to the inside of the modesty panel, are available for all desks. All tops are fitted with cable ports as standard.


Rectangular Desks


Rectangular Desks 800mm to 1800mm wide.


Classic Wave Desks


Wave desks 800mm deep at one end curving out to 1000mm deep at the other, providing a deeper surface for use with a monitor and keyboard. Available 1400mm to 1800mm wide.


Corner Desks


Corner desks were originally designed to provide a separate, deeper area for a monitor and keyboard. Many users continue to appreciate the convenience of separating keyboard work and paperwork even if, with modern flat screens, the additional depth is no longer necessary. Available 1600mm and 1800mm wide.


Simple Corner Desks


Simple corner desks feature a simplified structure that trades a little elegance for a cost saving. A standard corner desk is supported on a panel or frame at one end, with a corner leg and further panel or frame supporting the other end. On simple corner desks the corner leg and second panel or frame are replaced by a single panel or frame – but any difference is not noticeable when desks are configured in side-to side clusters. Available 1600mm and 1800mm wide.


Compact Corner Desks


Compact corner desks have a return side 1000mm deep compared to the 1200mm of a standard corner desk – still providing plenty of depth when used with a flat screen monitor, but saving space by reducing the footprint of the workstation. Available 1600mm and 1800mm wide.


Simple Compact Corner desks


The simple version (see above) of a compact corner desk.


120° Workstations


Symmetrical 120° desks 1000x1000x800mm. May be used individually or, more frequently, in clusters of three. Commonly used in conjunction with an adjacent desk-height, desk-depth pedestal.


Freestanding returns

Fixed pedestals are available either with one small drawer and one filing drawer, or with three small drawers.




A mobile pedestal 645mm high with two small drawers and a filing drawer, and a narrow (320mm wide) version with the same configuration, plus a low mobile pedestal 490mm high with one less small drawer. The low unit is handy if you want to place a piece of equipment or box file etc on top yet still position the pedestal under a desk.


Desk Height


Desk-height pedestals have two small drawers and one filing drawer and are available 600mm deep for use on the return side of a corner desk and 800mm deep for use butted against the end of a desk (effectively extending the work surface).


Pedestal Cushions

X-Range Reception Counters

X-Range offers a hugely popular modular reception desk system in the UK, comprising rectangular and radiused desks with matching deskovers and glass counter shelves. There are options for inset backpanels (to facilitate wheelchair access) and recessed desk panels (to maximise knee room). Kickplates are in Zinc.

Rectangular Desks

From 800mm to 2000mm wide. Optional inset modesty panels.

Quadrant/Compact 90º corner module

The tight curve of the 90° corner makes it suitable for circumstances where space is very tight – but with the limitation that the receptionist cannot sit at the corner section. Usually combined with an rectangular module on either or both sides.

Curved module (convex, 1600mm radius) 

Spacious curved desk usually combined with an adjacent rectangular module.

Counter Pedestal

A desk height, desk depth pedestal designed to be placed adjacent to a reception desk module. Differs from a standard desk height pedestal in that it has a kick plate to match those on the reception desk modules.


“Mini desks” 400mm high x 400mm deep (375mm internally), which sit on top of desk modules to raise the overall height to a counter height of 1135mm. This provides privacy and hides clutter, but counter height modules are often combined with desk height modules (with or without glass shelves) where space allows, to combine private space with a more open and welcoming section and avoid creating too much of a visual barrier.

Glass Shelves

Glass shelves 300mm deep and 212mm high, supported on Zinc or White columns, in sizes and shapes to match all desk modules. Optionally available with perforated steel front panels (Zinc or White).

X-Range Office Screens

[Note: X-Range QSPA screens have an aluminium framed construction and suite with the SPA freestanding screens from our Ambus range.]
