Standing Desk Buyers Guide

The decision to buy a standing desk is a lifestyle choice. You are choosing to embrace the health and productivity benefits afforded by sitting less and standing more. This page is designed to help you make the best buying decision so you can get out of your chair and into a new way of working.

Frame and Desktop Quality

The quality of the standing desk you buy is important. You want it to last for a long time, and if it's motorized, you want that to be reliable long-term as well.

Build Your Desk

Desktop Material

StandDesk desktops are made out of high-quality materials to be long-lasting, and strong enough to support more than 225 pounds of weight. Other brands make their desktops out of particleboard. You don't want that!

Weight Capacity

Not sure what all you pile on your desk but if you get 225lbs of stuff on your StandDesk, you're okay. Yeah, it can lift it. Other desks have significantly lower weight capacity, which means, if you have a lot of equipment, you don't want to lean on the desk too hard. It may crumble!

Durability

How long will your standing desk last? That's an important question to answer. Saving a few bucks on a cheaply made desk is okay until it's no longer fit to use, then it's just a waste of money. StandDesk puts all our equipment through rigourous tests to ensure you only get durable, long-lasting desks from us.
