At Orchard we have over 30 years experience manufacturing specialist drawing boards, light boxes and plan chests from our factory in Yorkshire. We supply our products to people and companies all around the world, from artists to scientists, archives to schools.
Not only will an Orchard drawing board see you right through college, but throughout your career too!
Our portable drawing boards provide the flexibility to easily work in different places. Suitable for all types of architectural or artistic work all our drawing boards are designed with you in mind.
Architects, engineers and artists require similar features from their drawing board no matter what stage in their career.
Precision, detail and consistency are important when doing intensive quality control inspection tasks or producing artwork from initial sketch to the finishing touches.
With sizes from 2A0 to A4 our light boxes create the ideal working area to compliment your creativity and let you get on with what you do best.
Student, designers and artists need light boxes and light tables to hand to ensure that wherever they are they can get their ideas down. These light boxes are hand made by Orchard in the UK and provide the consistency and the perfect work surface to let your creative juices flow.
We are nothing without you and so we pride ourselves on ensuring that every customer is happy to come back in the future. But don't just take our word for it, see what our customers are saying about our world class products and service.
No matter how big or small your requirement, we will always go the extra mile to make sure you are keen to recommend us.
Where you get design spaces you get lots of paper, and where you get lots of paper you need storage solutions.
Our stylish wooden plan chests are handmade and provide practical filing and storage for A0 and A1 paper. For added protection and security, our metal plan chests allow you to store paper horizontally under lock and key.
Sizes available for A1 and A0 paper, our metal plan chests offer robust design and style suitable for offices, studios and home work spaces.
All our drafting tables feature height and angle adjustment to suit your work style.
If you are serious about design you need the very best tools for the job. Our free standing drafting tables help ensure your drawings are produced to the highest degree of accuracy by providing a full and free range of movement for your calibrated scale rulers.
Now you can have the best of both worlds - precision and portability. Our portable desk top drafting tables are hand made by Orchard and are fitted with precision drawing equipment in the form of an A1 or A2 drafting machine.
With years of manufacturing experience we can make any number of specialised products and one-off equipment to meet your specific needs. Recently we have made several light tables for specialised quality control operations.
