What does NO TOP mean? Down

No top means that you will be getting the desk frame (with all motor and electrical components) only, so that you can use your own top from a different source. If you only get the frame, we will supply the necessary screws so that you can connect your own top.

How does the desk work? Down

Press and hold the up/down control button to adjust your height. The desk will elevate/lower until you reach your desired height. Other standing desks may require you to use a manual crank. We wanted to keep things simple, so you can focus on more important things. =)

Memory Handset Instructions? Down

Bring the desk to your desired height, hold a preset button for 5-8 seconds until it beeps, and repeat for each number/height.

Can I upgrade my Standard Handset for a Memory Handset? Down

Yes, you can. Just select the Memory Handset add-on on your configuration page.

I live in California - can I come pick up the desk? Down

Unfortunately customer pickups are not permitted at our third party Fulfillment Center for safety and insurance purposes.

How does the Cable Management Tray work? Down

Our Cable Management Tray is a sleek way to manage all your essential power cords. We designed this optional Tray so you’d never have to worry about messy power cords dangling everywhere or worrying if your cords are long enough. The Tray affixes to the frame and pairs perfectly with our Commercial Grade Power Strips.

What is the crossbar? Do I need it? Down

The Crossbar is an added stabilization feature that goes between the two legs. The desk was designed specifically so that it would be stable without a Crossbar (so you have more leg room). However, depending on the use of the desk and if leg room isn't as important, some customers have requested the extra stabilization (about 15%) - so it's an option if you'd like to add it! We also recommend the Crossbar for any customers that will be having upwards of 150lbs on the desk.

What’s the difference between Standard & Memory Handsets? Down

STANDARD FRAME - 2 button control (NO preset options)

MEMORY HANDSET - 3 presets to program desired heights

Can I use my own top? Down

Yes. Select “No Top” when configuring your order.

Can I put casters on my desk? Down

Yes, you can. We also sell our own casters as an add-on accessory! Just select the "Casters" add-on option on the configuration page.

What are the minimum and maximum dimension for a top if I wanted to use my own? Down

If you want to use your own top, just make sure it is minimum 24" x 45" and maximum 40" x 70".

I need more details on the Memory Handset. Down

The memory handset allows you to preset up to 4 different heights for the desk - so you don't have to find your perfect height each time you raise/lower the desk. It's also good if multiple workers/family members will be using it, so they can each have their own stored preset.

Inspecting your shipment for damageDown

Many of our products, especially desk tops, are large and quite heavy. It is advised that inpsect your package and product before you sign for it. Inspect the box for obvious signs of damage, especially the corners. Then, if possible, open the box that contains the desktop to inspect for signs of damage. Once the driver leaves, if there is damage to the product that occurred during shipping it becomes the buyer’s responsibility to file a claim with the carrier. Call them right away for instructions or visit their website for more detailed instructions.
