Tabletop Enclosures

New tabletop enclosures for optical tables, which target applications requiring an environmentally controlled atmosphere, are made with aluminum frameworks, durable acrylic sides, and rigid composite roofs.

The enclosures come in a variety of sizes ranging from 48 X 72 X 32 in. to 60 X 144 X 32 in. Side panels provide easy access to the tabletop from either side. An optional blower with an HEPA-filter mounts on top to create a positive air pressure. This ensures a clean environment when the enclosure is opened.
