What are the advantages of a height adjustable desk?

  • Flexibility: Increasingly, research is showing that it is advisable not to stay in the same position for long periods of time. A height adjustable desk makes altering your workstation position incredibly quick, safe and easy to do.
  • Personalised: Most desks are set up at standard heights which do not take into account your personal dimensions. In contrast, height adjustable desks can be completely adjusted to your height.
  • Flexibility: The adjustability of the desk height means that the chair can be quickly changed to suit individuals of different heights. This makes hot desking much safer and comfortable for staff.

Should I go for an electric or manual height adjustable desk?

This really comes down to personal preference. Electric desks are incredibly quick and convenient to use compared to the manual option.
