Work & Equipment Surfaces
4 work and equipment surfaces are standard.
All surfaces are height adjustable in 5/8" increments.
Pull out Worksurfaces
Both Worksurfaces pull in and out. Either can be pulled completely out.
While in use, Worksurface can be extended about 18". With this extention, and clearance under the Front Rail, leg room is nearly unlimited.
Left: Work surfaces can be tilted 50 degrees positive or negative or used flat. Adjust-ment takes 15 seconds with no tools.

Heavy Duty Steel Hardware
Cam Lock Fasteners, used on most other RTA furniture, are weaker than the Steel Screws used in a 'Nomic Station. Cam Lock Barrels are made from Zinc, which is a relatively brittle metal, and can easily break. The Cam Lock Screw shown is only 1/2 the diameter of the Steel Screws used in a 'Nomic Station.
Screw Pull Out Resistance
The Cam Lock Screw threads penetrate to only about 1/3 of the depth that The Steel Screws used in a 'Nomic Station do. Pressboard tends to crumble when screw is threaded in. High quality threads can't be formed. Pull out resistance of this type fastener is very low. Relatively thin pressboard panels tend to shake.
Heavy Duty Packaging
Heavy duty foam surrounds parts in boxes, on all sides, preventing damage. We do not use the cheap white expanded foam, but high density extruded foam that is commonly used in building construction under concrete. This isn't retail type boxing. It's designed to survive rough handling.
Hex Head Screws
Hex Head Screws used in a 'Nomic Station, are easy to turn as you can use a wrench to get leverage. Phillips drive screws used on most other RTA furniture are much harder to turn as you must use a screw driver. Philips drive slots are also easy to damage if you don't press down hard enough when you turn the screwdriver.
Nomic Station home office furniture is finished, by hand, with a tough penetrating varnish. This finish will not chip, peel or wear off like the sprayed on plastic coating used on most other furniture. It can be easily touched up without stripping.
You can wax your 'Nomic Station with ordinary paste wax to keep it clean.
Varnish has low environmental impact and is easy to touch up without stripping.
