Resistant Materials Workshop Example 1
From DT Online
Here students will work in a range of materials including metals, wood and plastics to create mainly domestic products.
These will be the main workshops used by younger pupils (up to KS3) but also to service GCSE Product Design courses.
There will most often be a storeroom adjacent plus doors into the workshop and a door to the outside.
The workshop may also have shared Heat Area adjacent in which case will not need a Brazing Hearth or fume extraction - it could also link through to a shared machining area and/or a collaborative project space - this may remove the need for a metal lathe and also increase the use of mobile equipment on braked trolleys
Note: The light grey shade areas around each machine tool indicate the safety areas which should be left clear between machines. The orange coloured strips alongside the safety areas indicate permissible overlaps between them.
