Height adjustable desks and tables are rapidly becoming one of our most requested products. Various medical reports have been released over recent years suggesting that it is more conducive to a healthy working environment to change your working position during the day.

Optimally, alternating standing and sitting at your desk regularly throughout your working day is deemed very beneficial. Many Government agencies are replacing their fixed height desks with height adjustable options. We have various sit-to-stand desk options available to cover just about every budget and requirement, including hydraulically operated, manual wind-up and the more popular electric push button height adjustable straight desks and corner workstations. The electric options can be adjusted to any height from the lowest point to the highest by simply pushing the up or down button and releasing it when the desired height is achieved. We also have a convenient pre-set control option available. This is an attachment that you can purchase and fit at any time, and allows you to pre-set your desk at various heights. At a single touch of a button you can lower your desk to a pre-set height, and then raise your desk again at a single touch of a button to a second pre-set height (comes with 4 pre-set memory buttons). This solution is perfect for users who regularly adjust their desk throughout the day, or when there are multiple users of the same desk who prefer to work at different heights.

This is a more economical and often convenient solution that simply sits on top of your existing desk top, and vertically adjusts to various heights quickly and easily.

Buying factors to consider

How will you use the height adjustable desk?

Investing in height adjustable desks is a smart idea for every office to increase employee productivity, health and to mix things up.

Height range

The height of these desks can be altered between a lower and higher level. The range the desk can move between should be noted to determine if it meets your requirements. Make sure that the maximum height is adequate for the person using it. For instance, tall people require a taller desk when standing, which might not be as much of a problem when sitting.

Ideally these desks should be set up so you can get the right height for the user. An ergonomic set up is ideal so that long term injury can be avoided. The height range of the tables we offer is provided in the product description. We encourage you to have a look to find out what sizes you have to play around with.


Some adjustable height mechanism can be noisy, which is not ideal if they are placed around other workers. The noise would distract other office workers so ideally noisy tables would be placed in separate office rooms. We offer some of the quietest electric desks available today, so this is not a real concern, but you may need to try out the table in person before you’re able to assess if the noise would be distracting.

Also, consider the amount of time it takes to switch the table from sitting to the standing position. If the speed is fast, then you will be able change the height regularly thorough out your working day.

Build quality

The mechanism to adjust the height needs to be well built. You should be able to alter the positions daily without worrying if the mechanism will wear out. Reputable companies such as ours, provide good quality products, often with multiple motors on each desk that provide better durability, reliability and longevity of the unit, which is an indicator of good commercial quality. You can trust that our desks are built to last, even in the most robust commercial environment.

A mixture of commercial quality melamine and metal is a common material combination. Get hands on with the table when it arrives to see exactly how it works, and check out and familiarise yourself with all the features.


Sit to stand adjustable height desks can be programmed to move to specific heights. This means you can get the ergonomics correct every single time without doing it manually. That’s ideal if the same person uses the desk and doesn’t want to play around with the settings every single time. Or, multiple users can pre programme their own height settings, so it can be changed at the touch of a button.

Also, what other features are added for you to get more use out of the desk? This could be rails and cable management holes. Some units even USB outlets, and also have alarms fitted, that advise when you’ve been seated too long, and when it’s time to stand up.


Do you need to buy several height adjustable desks in one package, or even larger quantities? Then you can take advantage of our bulk discounts. We offer good prices when buying in bulk. You’ll have a hard time finding better deals for this type of office desk.
