Console Airflow and AC
Everyone tolerates temperatures differently, and there is no one size fits all solution for office temperature. In order to keep everyone comfortable, environmental controls that regulate air flow and heat for each workstation are the best solution for keeping dispatchers comfortable and focused during long work shifts. Just a few degrees too hot or too cold can completely disrupt dispatcher work-flow, reducing focus and reducing comfort. And while the usual thermostat wars can be frustrating and distracting, in a dispatch center there isn’t time for that.
Many dispatch centers have already taken advantage of filtered air fans to push room temperature air at dispatchers. While most console furniture manufacturers provide options for fans, it’s the implementation that sets them apart. One of the most important features of any dispatcher workstation is fan location. Some workers prefer to have in-desk fans that boost airflow and cool off the immediate workspace, while others prefer to have standing fans that are easily movable and altogether separate from the desks. Both can be great options, and often it comes down to individual preference.
Adjustable Sit-Stand Dispatch Consoles
With several dispatchers often using the same desk, it’s vital to offer desks that are not only ergonomic but are also easily adjustable between shifts. Dispatchers come in all shapes and sizes, so why should consoles be one-size-fits-all?
Enter Sit-stand desks. They offer maximum adjustability, allowing dispatchers to sit or stand, and switch between the two quickly. Traditional fixed-height desks don’t provide the flexibility many dispatch workstations need.
