Desktops are available in four width options: 48'', 60'', 72'' and 80'', and each is 30'' deep.
The UPLIFT Height Adjustable Standing Desk is offered with two different styles of electric sit stand desk frame. Notice the legs are centered on the feet of the T-frame and offset to the rear of the feet on the C-frame. Our C-frame allows 3.5'' of extra mounting space underneath the front of the desk for installation of a longer keyboard tray track or other accessories. The C-frame foot also gives you a slightly more stable desk because it is built to be very stiff with its cast-molded aluminum construction to allow for its advanced design. The T-frame foot is made up of a more affordable bent steel construction.

UPLIFT Desks come standard with a Push and Hold Two Button Up/Down Keypad, or you can choose the Advanced 1-Touch Keypad with 4 Memory Positions and Digital Height Display for a quick, easy adjustment to your saved positions with just one touch of a button.
The Advanced Wire Management Kit is a complete cable organization system for your height-adjustable desk. We developed this kit after years of desk installations. It's a proven way to easily manage all computer and electric desk cords. The kit includes the following items; however you can choose to purchase the under desk wire management tray only or upgrade to include a clamp-on surge protector:
If you need more power outlets close at hand, or just need an all-in-one power solution, a clamp-on surge protector with USB charger can be added to the Advanced Wire Management Kit or ordered as a standalone product. This unique surge protector features six power outlets with space for two large AC adapters as well as a pair of ports for charging USB devices. Capable of clamping onto any surface up to 1 3/8'' thick, this surge protector can placed nearly anywhere on your desk for convenient outlet access. Please note that this surge protector will not fit inside of the wire management tray and must be mounted on the desk edge.

Grommet holes can be added to your UPLIFT desk to allow for through-desk cable routing or monitor arm mounting, or can include a power grommet with two AC power outlets. The holes will be drilled at the rear edge of your desk on either the left, right or center, or a combination of the three. For custom grommet hole positions, please call us at 1-800-531-3746.
Wire grommet covers feature flip-top tabs that cover the cord slot when not in use. UPLIFT Power Grommets feature two UL-approved power outlets, a small hole for wires, and 58'' cords. These power grommets give you easy outlet access for peripherals, and allow power sources to move up and down with your desk when going from sitting to standing.
The UPLIFT Desk can be ordered with optional casters. The casters come in a set of four - two for each leg. They can be locked to keep the desk stationary, but are easily unlocked when you need to roll the desk.
Please note: the casters will add approximately 1.5'' of height to your desk.
The attached stands that typically come with a new monitor are not ergonomic or adjustable; using a monitor arm will allow you to maintain good posture, avoid eye strain, control monitor position and save desktop space. Most people who purchase a monitor arm say they should have done so years ago.
The UPLIFT Monitor Arm is a stylish, pneumatic monitor arm that provides complete fingertip adjustment for height, depth and lateral movement with an adjustable counterbalance system that allows for easy movement. If you are looking for a dual monitor solution, you have the option of choosing two single UPLIFT Monitor Arms, or an UPLIFT Dual Monitor Arm, with the same great intuitive adjustment. Add an UPLIFT Laptop Mount to raise your laptop to a more comfortable viewing height.
*PLEASE NOTE: Your monitor must fall within the weight range of the model you choose. If your monitor is lighter than the weight range shown, the arm will not be remain at any position lower than highest point. If your monitor is heavier than the weight range shown, the arm will not remain at any position higher than the lowest point. If you are unsure of the weight of your monitor, contact us, and one of our experts will help determine the correct monitor arm for you.
Our 18'' x 30'' desk mat is an excellent choice for comfortable standing. It has a textured surface to prevent slipping, and the gel foam interior provides relief to legs and feet. It's light and small enough to easily move back and forth as you go from sitting to standing.
If you prefer a larger, thicker mat, our 2' x 3' and 3' x 5' options are extremely durable and comfortable. The padding is an inch thick, and the surface is puncture-proof to withstand high heels or even the wheels of your chair.
Note: If you wish to use your mat as a chair mat as well, you will need the 3' x 5' size.
When using a sit-stand desk, we recommend mounting your computer beneath your desktop to prevent cables from being stretched and pulled out of their ports when moving the desk from sitting to standing positions. We don't recommend leaving your CPU on the floor, as most cords aren't long enough to stretch from a computer placed on the floor to the standing height of your desk. While one option is to place your CPU on top of your desk, a CPU holder allows you to securely attach your computer tower to the bottom of your desktop to free up desk space. For an adjustable CPU holder at a discounted price when bundled with this desk, our own UPLIFT CPU Holder features a 360° swivel mount and a gliding track mechanism for easy access to your computer.
Please note that mounting options are limited when pairing this with a 48" wide desktop. Please refer to our blog article, which shows the possible configurations. If you still have questions, please give us a call and we would be happy to discuss it with you!
An ergonomic keyboard tray is an excellent accessory for your UPLIFT desk, giving you the freedom to adjust the height and tilt of your keyboard independently from the desk. A keyboard tray will also relieve the strain caused by over-reaching to type and is an excellent way to manage repetitive stress issues. An UPLIFT Desk is available with your choice of two keyboard trays. The UPLIFT Large Keyboard Tray comes with one, 27'' wide surface for your keyboard and mouse to sit side-by-side. For those who prefer more flexibility, the UPLIFT Switch Keyboard Tray comes with two surfaces: a 19.75'' wide platform for the keyboard and a separate 9'' diameter surface for the mouse. The mouse platform can easily move to the left or right side for ambidextrous mousing, and is also depth adjustable, allowing you to position your mouse closer to your body or farther away without adjusting the rest of the keyboard tray.
All necessary mounting hardware is included, including an 11'' track that allows your keyboard tray system to be mounted without interference from the desk's support beam underneath, and a 21'' track that you can use if the crosspiece is removed from the desk. While the 11'' track length will not allow you to fully store your tray along the track under your desk, we find that most users never fully retract their tray even if they have that capability. For users looking to retract their keyboard tray entirely under the desk along the track, do not install the optional center rails and mount the 21" track between the crossbar ends. For users with a 60'' or wider desktop, you also can take advantage of the 360° of rear swivel at the mechanism to rotate your platform underneath the desktop for storage.
Adding an UPLIFT Desk Modesty Panel & Cable Management will give your UPLIFT Desk's minimalist design an extra level of privacy. This modesty panel easily attaches to your desktop, traveling with it as you move from sitting to standing height, and features a mesh pocket for convenient wire management. The UPLIFT Modesty Panel, available at a discount when bundled with your desk, will help increase under-desk privacy while maintaining your desk's clean, open design. It is available in different lengths to correspond to your desktop. Each size is 10'' high.
For a little bit of extra storage, add an UPLIFT Half Circle Desk Drawer at a discounted price when bundled together with your desk. This half-circle-shaped, swiveling drawer easily attaches to the underside of your desktop via a central mount and pivots in either direction, rotating out to give you quick and easy access to smaller accessories that you don't want cluttering up your desktop. Featuring pen and pencil trays, a notepad slot, a tape dispenser, and storage compartments, the 13.6'' W x 7.4'' D x 1.3'' thick UPLIFT accessories drawer will help keep your height adjustable desk cleaner and more organized.
The Two-Drawer Mobile Pedestal is a great addition to your sit-stand workstation, offering you additional storage space for your documents and office supplies. It includes casters for easy movement and a locking top drawer for security and privacy. The pedestal can be ordered in a variety of finishes, shown below, and it's available at a discounted price when you bundle it with your UPLIFT Desk!

You don't need a bunch of fancy statistics to know how unhealthy it can be to sit at your desk for hours on end. Oh, those statistics are there, and they're scary - obesity, diabetes, and even early death. But you can already feel the effects of sitting all day, both on your comfort and your energy levels. What if you could push a button and magically become healthier and happier at work? The UPLIFT Height Adjustable Sit Stand Desk lets you do just that.
A lot of standing desks out there claim to be the best, but only UPLIFT Desks back it up. A quiet dual-motor system easily lifts a fully-loaded desk from a sitting position to a standing position in seconds, and the sturdy width-adjustable desk frame can expand during assembly to fit on a more expansive desktop or contract to fit into a space where every inch counts. The lack of a bulky, visible crossbar makes for a clean look, and removable crosspieces underneath the desktop allow for more space to mount accessories like a keyboard tray.
These are just some of the features of every UPLIFT Desk, but what about your UPLIFT Desk? You want a desk that sets you apart from everyone else riding the standing desk wave. UPLIFT Desks are loaded with unique customizable features and accessories you won't find anywhere else, so you can truly make your UPLIFT your own. Choose one of our standard laminate GREENGUARD Certified desktops, or upgrade to an environmentally-friendly 100% recycled reclaimed wood top, a 1" thick sustainable carbonized bamboo, or a gorgeous 1.75" thick real solid wood top in a multitude of woods. Or, add a third leg and make it a large L-shaped corner UPLIFT 950 desk.
Then, load up your desk with one or all of our UPLIFT accessories, including advanced wire management, 110V power and USB power built right into your desktop, single or dual monitor arms with fingertip adjustment, and an adjustable keyboard tray that comes with short and full-length tracks that allow for even more customization. UPLIFT has everything you need to give you a lifetime of healthy and happy sit-stand adjustment without breaking the bank or sacrificing your personal style. UPLIFT is a desk for everyone, but, more importantly, it's the desk for you.

Worth every dollar
January 8, 2015
I bought this desk about a month ago, after reading about the benefits of standing desks. I spend 7+ hours per day at my desk doing computer work, and it was starting to take a toll on my body. My back would hurt at the end of the day, and I just felt lethargic after a day of work - ironic, because I was just sitting. After doing some research I decided to get a standing desk, but I was not sure about which one to get. I debated getting a cheaper model, but I wanted something that would last and that would be easy to use. This was an expensive purchase for me, and I wasn't sure because it seemed extravagant. However, once I started looking at it as an investment in my health, I decided to take the plunge and ordered this desk, along with several of the accessories. Let me tell you, it was one of the best decisions I have made. My productivity immediately went up, and I was able to recoup the money I spent in about two weeks because I could put more time in to work. And at the end of the day, my body isn't tired, my back doesn't hurt, and I still have plenty of energy. Now, I'm sure this would be true of any standing desk that is functional, so let me take a minute to describe this desk, in particular: The desk arrived via freight delivery in several boxes (two for the desk, more for the accessories). It took me couple of hours to assemble everything and get my computer set up with the cable management system (an optional accessory). Assembly of the desk itself took about an hour, but that also included time to figure out where I was going to attach the optional accessories - keyboard tray, CPU holder, and monitor arms. I was also going slow to make sure I didn't mess it up - I think if I had to do it again, I could assemble it in 30 minutes or less. Once it was assembled I tested it out. It worked perfectly, with no problems. The motor is quiet and smooth - just a "whirring" sound as the legs extend or retract. It has four preset heights, and programming the controller was easy. I only use two, one for sitting and one for standing, but I am sure the other two would be useful if another person used this desk as well. The controller display is bright and easy to read, and gives the desktop height in inches from the floor. The construction is solid. I was concerned that the desktop might be cheap laminate. It is laminate, but it is high-quality - very dense, the veneer is thick and waterproof, and the seams don't look like they will separate any time soon. The desk is stable. I can get it to wobble a little when it is near its max height, but it would take some effort to knock it over. The legs are made of steel and are very solid. They telescope, with each section fitting snugly into the next. They appear to have Teflon inserts to allow them to collapse smoothly without the need for oil or grease. The motors are housed at the top of the legs. They operate smoothly and appear to be well-constructed, at least from the outside. The power supply attaches to the underside of the desk and it comes with adhesive-backed ties to keep the cables out of the way. The power supply is heavy - usually a good sign of reliability. My main concerns when selecting a desk were comfort, functionality, and reliability. So far this desk has exceeded my expectations on all three. I won't know how reliable it is in the long term until I've used it for a couple of years, but for now, it seems great.

Uplift 900 is wonderful
December 28, 2014
My experience with the desk and your company has been 5 stars from the beginning. The ordering website was very complete and the shipment followup was amazing. We did have to give the third party delivery man an extra $20 to come through our gate and up the driveway but that worked! My friend and I put the desk together in about an hour, with casters, and keyboard tray. It was easy. No trouble programming the main default heights. The ability to adjust the height at any time is super important because you need to experiment a little. Also the rubber floor mat is essential. This desk is very important for my health as I have had serious back surgery and sitting for long periods is my enemy...

I bought this desk for any of my employees who feel like standing for a while at work. I've had it for about a year now and I couldn't be more happy with my decision to buy this over some other products out there. The motor movement continues to work quickly and smoothly to adjust for different people's height throughout the day. The delivery was quick, setup fairly simple, and overall quality is excellent. There is nothing 'cheap' feeling about this desk. I've tried out some other products and for the price of the Uplift 900, you can't beat it. If you are like it was, and trying to make a decision whether to spend the money on a desk of this type; trust me, you won't be disappointed with this one.
Pros:The motor is quiet and smooth and so far is quite durable. The desktop finish is beautiful and does not scratch easily. Simple, elegant design. The price for the quality is fantastic.
Cons:None after a year of use.

My treadmill desk setup is over 180 pounds
November 7, 2014
Thank you so much for making such an awesome desk. I received the UpLift 900 earlier this week, and am amazed with how perfect it is. It's so convenient to be able to just push a button and adjust the height; glad I didn't skimp and get a hand crank unit. The usability and finish detail are excellent. I was originally concerned about it holding the weigh my desk setup - around 180lbs. At a maximum load rating of 335lbs, your desk seems to be the beefiest on the market in this price range. As recommended in your manual, I did mount the UpLift 900 legs further to the back of the desk for balance. I then pushed the desk up against the wall for added stability. At 6'3", I have found it very comfortable to walk/work at around 46 inches high (plus the casters). It doesn't seem to wobble unless I intentionally rock it back and forth. Anyways, I'm attaching a picture of my new treadmill desk setup. The treadmill is a LifeSpan TR1200-DT3. Also, awesome!!! Thank you again for producing this incredible desk!
Pros:Quality materials Doesn't wobble at all Easily lifts my 180 pound desktop setup
Enjoying It More Than Expected
April 7, 2014
4.5/5 but basically a 5. Pros: -Height adjustable! -Parts feel solid and good quality. -Relatively easy to assemble. -Highly customizeable from purchase to assembly. -Very well packaged. -Excellent communication from placing the order to when it was delivered. Cons: -Wobbles a bit but slight and only when raised. -Somewhat pricey for me but a good value compared to everything else out there. -Have to hold the buttons in to raise/lower but this is a safety feature so you don't accidentally touch the button and have your computer, phone, or monitor pulled off the desk buy its cords; folks that buy a single touch desk are taking a big risk for a small "convenience". Also the desk has 350 lbs of lifting power so if you hit a button and it's raising automatically you can hurt yourself if a body part is pinched. Holding down the button is safe in that if something happens you just release the button instead of rapidly searching for the stop button as you're panicking. I think the lawyers may put a stop to other irresponsible dealers selling dangerous one touch switches as soon as a persons expensive equipment gets damaged and/or someone gets hurt badly and they are motivated to sue. So the fact you hold down the botton is similar to a dead man switch if you will. I'm not disappointed in Uplift keeping me safe. That said they do have a one-touch controller but they highly recommend you don't use it unless it's in a factory type setting where the dangers can be managed by a safety professional; you have to call The Human Solution to request this controller. The cons are relatively minor. Would be nice if it was three legs to eliminate all wobbliness but it only wobbles if you are really pushing down on the desktop, otherwise it's stable. If you want absolutely no movement then buy the Uplift 950 desk which is a 3-leg desk. Although it's a bit pricey, compared to other height adjustable desks, I think this is the most reasonably priced height adjustable desk with the best warranty on parts. If I had to make the decision again, I'd still buy this desk everytime. Overall, I'm extremely pleased with the purchase. I highly recommend getting the caster wheels for ease of moving the desk around. It makes cleaning around the desk so much easier.
