FG technology worked to deliver a technology solution that meets the requirements of; space optimisation, invisible cable management with full user connectivity and IT hardware security. All of the desking units, plus a large quantity of soft seating and refectory furniture, were fitted with the FG technology PC remote controls. This remote unit replicates all the standard controls of a CPU tower and can be fitted directly into work surfaces, allowing the tower to be installed securely and safely anywhere within a radius of 20 metres.
