Thinking Space Systems have designed the Core Assembly System, an aluminium build structure that is to form the backbone of all their technical control room furniture solutions.

The new aluminium extrusion range which is developed in-house replaces the existing TSS aluminium build system created by Thinking Space’s Managing Director Wayne Palmer, some 10 years ago when the company was formed.

The engineering methodology and materials used in Thinking Space’s furniture sets them apart from other furniture manufacturers and products on the market today, as it allows for maximum flexibility when designing bespoke solutions.

The key benefits of the Core Assembly System for clients is that the new extrusions are larger and up to 50% heavier, offering furniture solutions with greater strength and support. In fact, it will offer such stability that furniture will be able to support the weight of one or two humans.

“One of the key requirements in the development of our new build system was to improve both longitudinal and torsion properties by creating more complex extrusions. The result being that it should easily bear the weight of a human walking across a console, which I have proven,” explained Wayne Palmer.

With a larger selection of profiles, the build system provides a wide range of solutions and finished shapes, giving the customer more choices. Some of the profiles are designed for specific purposes, ensuring that they are perfectly designed for their application. Elegant profiles give an even more aesthetically pleasing finish, with furniture looking modern and sleek, with clean lines

With new easy to fit connectors, assembly time is reduced. Consoles can be sent to site for the client to easily assemble using just four tools, which will be supplied with each console.

“The Core Assembly System can be connected to Novus, Kanya and the current Evolution ranges, making it the “core” centre of development for all Thinking Space products. This gives our clients a wealth of possibilities and options for their technical furniture requirements,” added Palmer.

Since the system’s launch into production in early 2013, Thinking Space has already completed a number of control room furniture projects, and has received positive feedback. One such project involved the design and installation of consoles for York Travel and Control Centre (YTCC), its new control room now modern and with a clean finish.
