"We normally preconfigure Module-R systems at CAD level prior to delivery," comments Gary Fuller, Custom Consoles' Sales Manager. "As an experienced client, Presteigne Charter designed their own module combinations to match the specific requirements of the two events. The modules supplied include 16 three-bay desk units, five two-bay units and one single-bay unit. These will be integrated with 20 worktops, 20 Ergotron desk-mounting LCD monitor arms, 14 12 U equipment pods, 30 6 U pods, 10 4 U pods and two 8 U pods. All were delivered to the company's headquarters near Gatwick prior to being assembled and forwarded to the respective sports events where they will form part of the outside broadcast infrastructure."

A mix-and-matchable control room furniture system, Custom Consoles' Module-R product range allows aesthetically pleasing and long-life control-room desks to be configured to meet specific shapes and dimensions from a selection of high-quality pods, base sections, 19 inch rack housings, worktops, end-panel modules and legs. Co-ordinated desk pods are available as single-bay sections with up 10 U chassis capacity. Module-R cabinet construction is in high-quality veneered MDF. Other features include continuous brush-strip cable access to front worktops.
