What is so special about the standing desk functionality in comparison with a common table?


Due to a special control unit, the table is raised to the required height. This option is suitable for people of different heights.


Due to the presence of the “memory” function, the table rises and falls at a certain time previously set by the user. For example, if the table is programmed to work sitting 40 and standing 20, then every 40 minutes the table top will rise, and there is no need to remind the mechanism about this.


 The mechanism is designed so that under the condition of overloading on the table top, the lifting system does not work. This is necessary if there is a large amount of office equipment on the table. The maximum permissible load weight on top is usually indicated by the manufacturer and it differs depending on the selected model.
