Many of our standard rectangular and triangular lecterns are produced using 100% aluminum. This enables the podiums to be very lightweight and easily transported without sacrificing stability. The reading surface is attached with recessed mounting screws for an even more seamless look. Many styles feature shelving and storage space that is built into the framework and welded in place for security. In addition, the minimalist design uses much less material than solid metal, wood, or acrylic options, making these podiums an economical, eco-friendly option. For this reason, a number of our metal lecterns are affordable alternatives to classic solid body designs made from more traditional materials.
