overview

The EXPACE office furniture features the “Spine” panel, a new design concept that houses numerous network wires and cables neatly inside the Spine panels. This Spine-based system serves a backbone for flexible office layouts, freely accommodating desks, shelves, low walls, storage cabinets and other accessories. Desks and cabinet units can be arranged as needed without wire and cable restrictions.

Connecting spines
The spine panels are highly stable, free-standing and easy to connect in a line.
Two types of spine
The spine comes with two types of legs; one with a leg on one side and the other with on legs both sides. The former as shown in a picture #2 allows the panel to be placed next to a wall or walkway, enhancing space utilization efficiency.
Wire management
Each spine panel features a 110mm (41/4”) wide holder to organize wires and cables neatly inside. The wires can run through either horizontally or vertically.
Belt tile
The belt tiles, which are made of high precision injection molded plastic, are easily detachable to facilitate cable management.
Magnetic lower tile
The Pre-coated metal(PCM) finishing tile is attached to on the lower part of the panel with magnets for easy installation and maintenance.
Die-cast aluminum bracket
The spine’s attachable shelves are solidly secured with die-cast aluminum brackets that also look great.
Aluminum leg
The aluminum legs are attached without having the bolts exposed. The appearance is simple yet sophisticated.
Modesty panel
Privacy can be maintained for any layout configuration, as a screen can be attached on the desk worktop and a modesty panel can be added when necessary. The screen is made of translucent material, blocking the line of vision while maintaining a general feeling of openness.
Desk & Additional shelf
The desk and shelves attached to the spine are of different heights, letting the user increase or reduce the work surface as needed. A cushioning material covers the underside of the shelf brackets to minimize impact with the desk.
Handy pedestal
A handy tray for stationary is placed on the top front corner of the 3-drawer storage cart. The tray is covered in translucent plastic, which adds an attractive touch while adequately concealing the contents inside. The top has raised edges to secure items placed there.
Tall unit
The combination unit consists of drawers and shelves, and the storage area is extended vertically to maximize office space utilization.
Lower drawer
The lower drawers of the combination unit can be locked safely and neatly from the shelf compartment above. Operation is neat and safe.
Overhead cabinet
One overhead cabinet offers storage space as well as a magnetic board for users on both sides. The cover material is available in various colors, providing a selection of accent colors to enhance the office decor.
Aluminum protector
The elegance of the 2 and 3-high cabinets is enhanced by rounded aluminum protectors on the corners. The hinges are mounted inside, and are not visible when the doors are closed for a neat look.
Cabinet handle
The simply designed handle is outfitted with a gentle lifting mechanism for greater user convenience.
Side panel frame
The extruded aluminum frames meet at a 45 angle, and the separate parts assemble without exposing bolts. The corners are nicely finished to boost the elegant appearance.
Pivoting connector
The side panels are attached to the spine with pivoting connectors, so the angle can be adjusted as needed.
Screen
The screens are affixed to the spine’s aluminum frame with die-cast brackets. They remain solidly in place and look stylish, elevating the effective height of the spine panel.
Accessory panel
The accessory panel can hold various items and serve as a magnetic board. It can be installed on the spine panel, spine screen or desk screen for enhanced utility.
Side cabinet
The side and back panels of the side cabinet extend above the top to secure items such as books or office equipment. The shelf doors slide open and shut smoothly and effortlessly.
Round table
The round table, designed for small meetings, is mounted on casters to facilitate mobility.
