Our customers often ask for a height adjustable lectern, whether for DDA compliance or just to accomodate a range of speaker heights. If you are purchasing a new podium for a school, for example, it is worth paying a little bit extra to ensure that your lectern can be used for students to speak as well as staff. We have been planning for some time to introduce a height adjustable lectern as one of our standard products, and we were determined to produce a really good design with plenty of features and a quality appearance. I think you will agree that this height adjustable podium design fits the bill!
This height adjustable lectern has been designed with great attention to detail. The soft touch electrical controls make it easy to adjust the height from a minimum of 850mm to a maximum height of 1200mm. The operation is low noise, and has an integrated collision protection sensor - so if there is anything in the way when you attempt to adjust the height (for example, little fingers!), the movement will automatically stop until the obstruction has been removed.
Our height adjustable lectern is full of features. The rectangular worktop provides ample space, measuring 450mm x 550mm, and there is space to add an optional LED goose-necked light. There is internal XLR cabling as standard to which you can add an XLR microphone and socket. The lectern is cleverly designed to hide the cabling inside the body of the podium, and the cable feeds out at the bottom to allow for plugging in to your nearest outlet. The skirted base of the lectern partially hides the castors, which have been added for ease of movement, so you can use your lectern in a variety of locations indoors and easily move it back into its storage spot afterwards. There is a small shelf easily accessible for the speaker but unseen by the audience, which is useful for a glass of water.
Because we manufacture our lecterns to order here at our workshops in Cheshire, we can offer a range of finishes. We use an oak finish as standard, or you can choose from warm French Walnut, imposing Opera Walnut, minimalist textured white or contemporary dark grey. If you have a particular colour or finish in mind, please ask and we will do our best to source the best matching material for you. The photographed images shown here on our website are in the French Walnut finish.
For a final personal touch, add an acrylic logo plaque with your school, church or company logo.
Lecterns are manufactured using MfMDF, which gives an easy care, wipe clean surface, and a solid core material. This item is shipped fully assembled by palletised delivery service.
