How to Install Pegboard for Maximum Service

Your pegboard serves as a trusty drying rack. It makes it easy for you to dry up glassware inside your laboratory, such as your flasks and beakers, without using too much space inside your lab, allowing you to use the area for other activities.

Location

Before installing one, pick the right location for your pegboard. Check the spot to make sure it’s right by the sink. Easy access to the pegboard makes it convenient for you to mount your glassware after washing each one. Also, it’s situated over the sink to allow water to go down the drain, saving you the trouble of having to mop up spills on the sink or floor.
