Editing Desks


Mode-AL has been manufacturing Editing Desks and custom desks for the last 10 years and in 2013 we undertook a re-design of our entire standard Edit desk range. Recognising the requirement for a much more flexible work space and a significant update to the look and functionality, we embarked upon this exercise with a clean sheet of paper and 10 years of desk design experience.

Mode-AL has provided Editing Desks to many major broadcasters including the BBC, ITN, ITV, NATO and VRT Radio 2 Belgium and installed desks in the control room of the Automobile Club of Monaco for their staging of the Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix.


Cable Management

As with all Mode-AL products, cable management is built in with a choice of under-desk cable trays or our under-desk enclosure directly beneath. With the use of the static desk legs as cable ways from the floor to the cable tray and energy chain for the height adjustable desks, Mode-AL provides a comprehensive cable management system from floor to kit.

Long term practicality

Our experience has told us that an edit desk, if not for life, is for a very long time. As requirements change, your desk should be able to change with you. This is why we have designed this desk from the beginning to be able to be upgradable well into the future. For example the choice of height adjustable or not; with current regulations in a hiatus worldwide, the change from static non height adjustable to height adjustable is simple; all you do is change the legs and that is it. As your requirements for 19” rack mounted equipment changes, you can change the pods to accommodate more or less equipment. With our screen beam system you never need to worry if that new screen will fit.
