Furniture Procurement

More than ever the right furniture plays an important role in helping employers attract, retain and motivate their workforce.  Understanding the new hybrid work environment is critical to provide workplace solutions for the new workforce.  Our focus is to find the appropriate furniture and workplace solutions that support the end users work flow and business process.

We concentrate on domestic trade partners where we can better control access and lead times for product delivery.  We purchase from USA based manufacturers before going to our NAFTA trade partners to the north and south.

Our procurement process is automated using technology, remotely accessing manufactures product in real.  Accessing the manufactures information directly significantly reduces errors that often occur in the specification and procurement process.

Outside of new manufactures we have access to preowned furniture by many of the top tier manufacturers including but not limited to: Miller/Knoll, Steelcase, Allsteel, Haworth and Kimball.  This extends to pre-owned casegoods, cubicles, storage, conference, training room furniture and seating.  Additionally, we have the ability to have these products re-manufacture to meet client specifications.

Furniture Installation & Reconfiguration

We provide furniture delivery and installation services to provide a complete turn-key one stop service.  Our experienced installation technicians can expertly assemble, deliver and install furniture and provide support services that include furniture touch up and repair. 

Our project management team and systems provide an automated pull list to ensure all the product is pulled, assembled and installed at the location.

Should you need existing furniture or cubicles reconfigured, our CAD software allows us to analyze the current inventory against the new layout to determine if the appropriate components are available or if additional product is needed.

Office Move Relocation

Reducing down time and taking the hassle out of moving is what we do.  We do this by using our well documented move/relocation system and implementing our hard-shell, crush proof, mobile, rental plastic crates.  It is a sustainable solution, eliminating the need to assemble boxes that can crush, are difficult to move and then throw away in the landfill.  We have a very streamline document move process that makes moving easy and efficient.

Strategic Planning & Hybrid Workplace Design

Selecting furniture, its aesthetic, price and quality is a small portion of the procurement process. Planning for the right furniture and its configuration so it will fit the workflow process, is paramount in creating an effective and efficient work environment. 

Understanding how to implement a successful Hybrid work environment depends on knowing what kind of furniture is needed, its configuration / placement and the appropriate parameters for implementation. 

Our team can lead you through the process of identifying the information you need to know and consider when creating such an important and complex environment.

The First Response Table

Patented by First Line Furniture® PAT. NO. 10,295,311 | PAT. NO. 10,866,068 | PAT. NO. 11,229,284 Distributed by Aegis, LLC

First Line Furniture® Founders Rich Trubacek and AJ Unger were talking the Saturday morning after the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting that resulted in 17 dead and 17 wounded in Parkland, FL. After seeing the minuscule desks that students were trying to hide behind, they landed on the idea to design and build an extraordinary table; both a functional workspace and safe harbor from an active shooter

Defensive Application

The concept is: 4 tables in a room with one table (the teachers desk) to be pushed against the entry door to serve as a barrier from entry and to absorb bullets shot through the door.

The other three 5’ wide x 30” deep tables would have the tops flipped up and put side by side in the corner of a room creating a 15’ wide wall. The result is a triangle behind the 3-tables that can accommodate 25-30 people.

First Response Table

The best practice for Active Shooter is Run, Hide or Fight. Hide is somewhat achievable but protection is not because class room furniture provides no from low high caliber guns The 15’-table wall provides true concealment and best of all true protection from high caliber fire arms.

Adults or students can easily activate the table by pulling on the leaver and giving the table top a slight push upward and the 2-heavy duty pneumatic lifts due the rest to get to top upright in less than 4 seconds. The table can easily be active by any small child of school age.  The table height is also adjustable for different school age to adult environments.


The table was tested at a gun range by a professional shooting instructor.

A majority of the weapons tested will defeat a first responders’ protective armor.  Having the table as an additional shield gives the tactile team much better protection and reduces the potential for injury or loss of life.  

Clearing a room with hostages can be done more safely by placing the table just past the door opening in the hall and the Tactile Team taking a defensive position behind the table allowing the rooms occupants to run out behind the table under the protective cover of the Swat Team members and the table itself. 

Table Accessories

The table can be accessorized with peripheral devices that provide further benefits.

Magnetic door-stop.  Sounds simple…but one of the best deterrents from opening a door. An orange-colored door-stop magnetically attached to the table base provides a simple but effective deterrent to entry.

Trauma Kit with compression bandages and tourniquet attached to the underside of the table can be applied to the wounded while they wait for extraction. Stop the bleed and stop the dying is the critical mission to having more survivors.

A biometric gun box to store a weapon that can be retrieved at the time of attack.  The box can be securely mounted to the metal leg of the table to conceal a weapon that can be accessed by a push button code or finger print.

The Desk Shroud is a laminate surround that makes the table appear to be a traditional desk and blend into a more traditional office environment.

Other lifesaving and tactile devise are in R&D that can further supplement the table and play a role in an active shooter situation.

Offensive Application

The mobility of the table with a handle bar system and large 4” wheels allow a first responder tactile team to use the table as an offensive tool to advance down hallways in pursuit of the threat while providing protection or to assist in providing a barrier to clear occupants from rooms.

In this image the tactile team is vulnerable with little or no place for cover should they come under fire. The First Response Table provides protection that will defeat, what their body armor will not, allowing them to defend or attack from that position to neutralize the threat.

Advancing against or in search of the threat the First Response Table can be driven by 2-3 swat team members to clear large hallways and open areas.  Using the table, the swat team can more safely and quickly navigate the comprised facility in search of the threat and defending more successfully against any return fire potentially reducing the need to retreat and most importantly avoiding mortal injury.

Defending Against Explosives

The First Response Table was tested at the GTI facility in South Carolina.  A team of professionals created a simulated IED and remotely detonated it 21” away from the front of the table. 

The table successfully defend against the explosion with the front of the table filled with shrapnel and the back of the table pristine. 

In the video below table top did not flip back and never moved backward after remote denotation of the grenade.

GTI Government Training Institute (GTI) Joint Operations Center (JOC) is located in the South Carolina


The mobile, flip-top, multipurpose table is designed with one unique feature: the ability to stop bullets without ricochet and to shield from explosive detonations.

The table holds 3 patents that were secured in less than 6-months a record time frame.

National Institute of Ballistic Standards NIJ0108.01

  • One Hour Fire Rating Per ASTM E119-98
  • UL752 Standard for Bullet Resisting Equipment – Level 8 Paragraph 4.10
  • A ballistic resistive product becomes “UL Listed” after being subjected to a variety of ballistic tests.
  • After the initial testing series, the product is then set up for maintenance testing that involves “pulling random samples” without notice from the manufacturer’s routine production on a quarterly rotation.
  • This rigorous testing schedule ensures that the product is being made without variation and has the highest level of ballistic resistive integrity available.

Material Benefits

This material is designed to defeat a projectile through a process of energy absorption via controlled delamination and dissipation.

  • In contrast to metal barriers, these panels are designed to prevent ricochet as well as spalling on the non-threat side of the bullet resistant panel. The material transfers the energy of the bullet across the width of the panel.
  • Once the internal plies of the material have begun to delaminate, additional shots become progressively easier to defeat because the energy is more readily absorbed by the laminated table composite material.
  • Watch the Gun Range Video to see the First Response Table defend against a variety of high caliber weapons.
Three flip top training tables 30 x 60 are united to combine and create a 4’ high by 15’ wide defensive wall that provides concealment and protection.

Indoor Air Quality: Synexis Biodefense System

If COVID showed us anything it was the power a pandemic can have our society, its health and the economy.  During COVID we researched all forms of accepted cleaning methods for workplace environments.  What we found was there are 4 ways to clean a workplace environment.

1. HEPA Filters & Additional Filtration

These two approaches are typically used in combination to relocate pathogens gradually from the occupied space to the outside space. Increasing outdoor air ventilation, i.e., increasing the amount of fresh air (with an assumed lower concentration of pathogens) that is brought in from the outside, dilutes the concentration of pathogens in the indoor air. However additional air can increase moisture and humidity leading to the development of mold which is harmful to the occupant.

The implementation of thicker and denser filters is a strain on air handling systems not designed to use those filters.  This can result in an expensive overhaul of the mechanical system that may not be cost effective.

This combined approach is effective for reducing the concentration of airborne pathogens, but it does not address contaminated surfaces and it may lead to increased energy consumption from the need to condition the outside air.

2. Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation

Ultra violet lamps for space disinfection can only be used when the room is unoccupied and any plants and animals must also not be present.  The UV light depending upon the bulb has the potential to create ozone in concentration which can be harmful to people, pets and plants.

3. Bi-Polar Ionization Plasma

Bipolar ionization works by introducing positive and negative ions into the air. The ionization causes production of clusters of hydroxyl (OH) radicals, which are formed on the surface of microbes, removing hydrogen from the microbes’ cell walls, thereby inactivating potentially infectious particles. If not properly specified and installed, it may cause negative health effects.

Tests found that ionizing devices led to an increase in oxygenated volatile organic compounds — substances commonly found in paints, paint strippers, aerosol sprays and pesticides.

According to the EPA, exposure to VOCs has been linked to a range of health effects.  These include; eye, nose and throat irritation, headaches, loss of coordination and nausea, damage to liver, kidney and central nervous system.  Some organics can cause cancer in animals, and humans.

4. DHP (Dry Hydrogen Peroxide)

This DHP™ molecule is structured similarly to a water molecule. The vulnerable structures on microbes, like viruses, bacteria, and mold, attract DHP™ like water. Once found, DHP™ attacks the vulnerable prongs on the outside of the virus, for example, and denatures them.

Then, DHP™ creates rifts in the spherical body of the virus and causes it to rupture.. No more microbe. Just loads of DHP™, continuing the cycle and turning back into water after the pathogen bursts—only to be replaced with more DHP™ from Synexis, targeting the next microbe before you even know it’s there.

SYNEXIS Biodefense Technology (Cleaning the Air & Surfaces)

New challenges require new ideas. Smart businesses will seek indoor environment cleaning solutions that are based on technology that has been rigorously reviewed in real world environments.

Meet Synexis, a bio-defense system with 7 peer reviewed, published studies, 16 active US patents and 17 more patents pending. DHPTM safely reduces viruses, bacteria and mold on surfaces & in the air 24/7 with very little labor.

Synexis is the first company to create and patent Dry Hydrogen Peroxide (DHP™), the true gas form of hydrogen peroxide.

Made from naturally occurring elements already in the air, DHP™ is designed to safely and effectively break down pathogens—flowing freely and continuously through indoor spaces to reduce the presence of microbes in the air and on surfaces, with no reliance on the exchange of air.

“Denaturing renders a virus non-infective and destroys it. When DHP™ attacks the prongs on the outside of the virus and denatures those, it renders them non-infective. Then DHP™ creates rifts in the spherical body of the virus that causes it to rupture.”

— Jim Lee, Founder of Synexis and Inventor of DHP™ technology
