Humanscale Float Table Base

item#: HUS609

The Humanscale Float Table Base is the next generation in height-adjustable desk bases. The Float Desk is named for its ability to nearly "float" into position when moving up or down. It does this with easy, one-hand counterbalance weight adjustment, without electricity, and without a cross beam, freeing up valuable leg space. Along with nearly effortless sit-to-stand height adjustment, Humanscale Float Table Bases also offer the safety of a constant-force mechanism and lighted indicator which only allows adjustment when the desktop and its contents are counterbalanced properly.

Optional Keyboard Tray

An ergonomic keyboard tray is an excellent accessory for your height adjustable desk base, and the Humanscale Float Keyboard Tray has been specifically designed for use with the Float Table. Its specially-designed platform, track and mechanism allow for full storage under your Float Table's desktop, even using a desktop as shallow as 24''. The streamlined mechanism design features the standard 15° of negative tilt found in all Humanscale mechanisms, but removes the independent height adjustment from the keyboard tray mechanism, instead allowing you to use your Float Table's height adjustment capabilities to adjust your keyboard tray. The Float Keyboard Tray comes in black or white, and also lets you choose between foam, gel or slim gel palm rest.

  • HUS403~B~F: Black with black foam palm rest
  • HUS403~B~G: Black with black gel palm rest
  • HUS403~B~S: Black with black slim gel palm rest
  • HUS403~W~F: White with gray foam palm rest
  • HUS403~W~G: White with gray gel palm rest
  • HUS403~W~S: White with gray slim gel palm rest

Want to use a keyboard tray with your Float Table? No problem! The Float table requires the use of an 11'' track, and we recommend going with the 5GSM mechanism. A Humanscale keyboard tray system, like the Humanscale 900 Keyboard Tray System, is available with an 11'' track option.

Note: This track length will not allow the tray to fully stow beneath the desk.

Professor Ergo's Thoughts:

The counterbalance mechanism on the Humanscale Float Table Base makes it a breeze to alternate between sitting and standing, which of course helps to promote blood flow and thus increase productivity. It also makes for a safer height-adjustable desk, preventing the possibility of injury that can come with incorrect counterbalance. And the Humanscale Float Desk Base does all of this without one of those obtrusive support beams that can get in the way of your leg space.
