Its surface is not adversely affected by moisture and the panel remains impervious to mould or rot.

Concept to Completion

TBI Scientific completely develop their own drawings with a design department that have expertise in both AutoCAD & Revit. This means that as well as giving their  clients Plan and Elevation drawings, they  can also offer 3D renders, allowing the end users to grasp the overall design concept  before installation.

This method of layout planning utilizes 2D & 3D renderings to clarify the intended space utilization, existing requirements and features, connections, area dimensions, interfaces and all other relevant information.


The laboratory will become clearly conceivable for you through the 3D drawing. We will then refine the details together with you. In the next stage of the presentation, your laboratory will be almost “accessible” in colour and with clear, differentiated depth in the rendered representation. You will be able to see your laboratory from all angles. As a logical conclusion to our precise planning and design work, the laboratory will be installed in your building


TBI Scientific’s design and project management team of designers and expert fitters carry the latest state of the art equipment, and have a wealth of knowledge with all ranges of laboratory furniture systems.

Trespa does Not support bacteria growth!

New project in Dublin chooses TRESPA TOPLAB®PLUS over Epoxy, Trespa is an extremely high standard off worktop which does NOT support bacteria growth, it is much easier to clean/disinfect vs Epoxy.

  • TRESPA TOPLAB®PLUS has a surface quality with antibacterial properties and is extremely resistant to most aggressive chemicals.
  • TRESPA TOPLAB®PLUS panels offer a high standard of hygiene, strength and durability and therefore are used worldwide in diverse lab environments including chemical, physical, analytical and microbiological laboratories.
  • Note that Epoxy chemical resistance tests are often based on SEFA 8 and not SEFA 3
  • SEFA 8 is 1 hour contact time between chemical and the surface whereas SEFA 3 is 24 hours contact time, much more relevant when it comes to use of worktops.
  • Please note that Trespa is the only manufacturer offering 10 years extended warranty! 

Always look for options, as each laboratory is different, let us recommend the best worktop for you!

Think Trespa!

The third issue of Think Trespa Magazine is out! The newest edition of the publication, dedicated to the excellence and meaningful ventilated façades, focuses on creating unique identities and customization.

A worldwide range projects show that uniqueness can be achieved by combining the existing 121 standard Trespa® Meteon® decors or by developing custom made colors. Outdated aesthetics can be reinterpreted to improve the quality of life of citizens and their surroundings; and little details can make large impacts on small-call applications.

In this issue, readers can also learn about the tests that ensure the Trespa® Meteon®’s color stability  in the face of extreme weather. It also emphasizes the work done by Trespa Design Centre Barcelona, which serves as a hub for local architects and designers.

Through the pages, it is also possible to experience the new six elegant and timeless grey Wood Decors and seven Naturals, especially designed to create lively façades with a weathered look.
