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.
