USE A HYDRAULIC LIFT KIT TO CREATE A CUSTOM LECTERN FOR PUBLIC SPEAKING EVENTS
Anyone who’s been to a business conference, college presentation, or other event requiring multiple speakers to use the same podium has surely noticed that the flexible microphone snakes on most podiums are rarely adequate to handle the necessary height and usage adjustments required by different speakers. By including a hydraulic lift kit inside the lectern’s framework, cabinetmakers can ditch those miserable snakes and create truly adaptable, adjustable height podiums that will serve the needs of any speaker.
Quality hydraulic lift kits are available in a wide array of configurations, and can be implemented into nearly any lectern fabrication project. Depending on the desired podium setup, hydraulic lift kits can be found in 2-leg and 4-leg designs, and can adjust up to 16” in height. With simple hand crank or electronic controls, moving the system up and down will take no time at all. Integrating a hydraulic lift kit into the podium at the design and building stages will prove to be a fairly simple and cost effective solution for any casegoods manufacturer.
Alternatively, adding a full enclosure to a ready-made adjustable height table will create a podium that not only delivers superb vertical adjustability, but also heavy-duty strength and capacity to accommodate any unique requirements. Many sizes of height-adjustable tables are available, making it easy to find the right one to meet any specifications. Whether a speaker needs somewhere to place a laptop (or even desktop) computer for a multi-media presentation, large and/or heavy archaeological artifacts for visual aids, or anything in between, an adjustable height table with an optional enclosure will be up to the task. Hand crank or electronic controls make the height adjustment process a snap.
Adding a retrofit hydraulic lift kit while building a podium will give it supreme adjustability for any height and usage requirements. An adjustable height table with a full enclosure will guarantee ideal vertical adjustment and ample space and strength for any size and weight considerations. No matter if the keynote speaker is Danny DeVito or LeBron James, the lectern will quickly and easily adjust for proper height and capacity.
