Manufactured from steel sheet metal, Planex furniture can be customized to offer multi-functionally to suit different uses. Our range can easily be reused, reconfigured, repurposed, refinished, relocated or recycled which extends the longevity of fit-outs making a great environmental and economical choice. 

Wide Range Of Applications
Planex’s personal storage solutions support flexible, agile, activity-based working (ABW) environments or end-of-journey storage for commuters and mobile workers. From the head office to the studio or the storage room, our extensive product range provides flexible steel storage solutions across a range of applications.

Durable Material
Steel has many advantages as a furniture material. Steel furniture is attractive, safe to manufacture and environmentally friendly. Steel is one of the least reactive metals used in furniture design as it does not corrode and reacts with very few chemicals. Steel resists dents better than other metals, next to laminate, steel has become the structural material of choice.

Planex uses BlueScope steel, which can be fully recycled replacing the use of unrecyclable laminate and MDF used in joinery fit-outs and lockers. Steel is one of the most recycled materials worldwide, which means Planex storage won’t end up as landfill.

Additionally, unlike joinery and conventional laminate storage, the Planex’s range reduces the number of resources needed for manufacture and have been designed PVC and VOC free. 

Planex furniture provides a modern and contemporary profile and can be designed with customised options. Available in an array of coloured powder coats finishes, designers can customise products from the building blocks in our collection to suit a wide range of interiors, whilst reflecting the aesthetic of the client environment.

Punch Patterns
Planex offers a range of unique perforated punch patterns available to create unique patterns and variegated mosaics. Furniture can also be fitted with acoustic treated panels to reduce noise in the workplace.

Steel furniture has a strong weight bearing capacity. Steel drawers and steel lockers are made with optimized strength integration within the design. This optimization and innovation make the loading capacity of our steel storage extremely high. 

Steel storage is fabricated with spot welding. All parts are tightly connected with each other and become an inseparable whole part. This makes the steel furniture much more stable and durable than joinery.

Powder Coating 
Powder Coating is an environmentally friendly coating material, which provides a uniform, durable, high-quality environmentally safe and attractive finish. Planex can also refresh furniture powder coats as time passes to reinvigorate furniture to look as good as new.

Planex’s range of storage is healthy for end-users and manufacturers. During production, the main materials used are sheet metal and powder coats, which don’t need to be processed by glue or other chemicals. This means steel furniture doesn’t give off any harmful VOC’s once places within the office.
