About Height Adjustable or Sit Stand Desks

Sit Stand and Height Adjustable Desks explained 

We appreciate that it's difficult to decide which height adjustable desk in the UK desk is right for each and every customer so we created this easy to follow guide. There are numerous sites quoting the top 10 and best selling height adjustable desks but having the relevant information is important. 

Height Adjustable Desks come in 3 styles:

  • Manual    You have to lift the desk manually to a height and fix it to that height
  • Hand Crank The desk has a manual crank you turn to get the desk height to change
  • Electric  The desk is plugged into a socket and you press a button for the sit stand desk to rise or lower, some desks have just Up-Down buttons whilst others have memory settings

The budget Height Adjustable and Sit Stand desks have single motors which means they are slightly more jerky when going up and down. and these are designed for a lower budget but perfectly adequate

The mid range and high end height adjustable desks have two motors so that there is an even movement, on corner desks these may have 3 motors.

The cost varies depending on where the products are manufactured, a number are made in the Far East which is cost effective, whilst the European manufactured desks are ,ore expensive with German, Italian or Swedish motors.

Height adjustable and Sit Stand desks are useful for the health benefits (see our blog for details) and usually are adjustable from 60cm to 115cm in height
