This slim and durable adjustable height desk features a DC motor that can lift up to 165 lbs. and allows the desk to move from sitting height to standing height with the push of a button. For your desktop, choose from a rectangular laminate top in cherry, mahogany, maple, black or white; a speckled graphite curved laminate top; or a real reclaimed wood desktop made out of salvaged Douglas fir. Experience the benefits of an adjustable height standing desk with the UPLIFT 970 Height-Adjustable Pedestal Standing Desk (Black), including more calories burned while working, better respiration, improved circulation, and an overall productivity boost.
Please note: While a pedestal, or single column desk, has a smaller footprint, making it ideal for limited space areas, stability is increased greatly with the addition of a second leg. For our most affordable and stable two-leg desk, check out the UPLIFT 900!

Our philosophy is to expand the standing desk to a wider audience by streamlining production - eliminating middle men - and building UPLIFT products in our plant. UPLIFT Desks are assembled in Austin, Texas, and parts are sourced both globally and locally. Enjoy our selection. We know you'll love UPLIFT products - we hope to see you back as a repeat customer!
The UPLIFT 970 Height-Adjustable Standing Desk is available with a durable desktop in the following shapes and finishes.
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:
Click the video below to get some helpful tips on making the most of your UPLIFT Advanced Wire Management Kit:
The included cable organization tray forms the crux of your wire management solution with a sleek, black design that seamlessly blends with your desk's design and mounts securely to the desktop with two self-tapping wood screws or a strip of included double-sided tape. At 3.6'' wide, this tray is wide enough to accommodate cords, power supplies and the included power strip, minimizing below-desk clutter. While we recommend adding the entire advanced wire management kit for a full cable management solution with the most customization, this wire management tray portion of the kit can also be added to your desk order on its own.
10 self-adhesive wire mounts and 100 single-use cable ties allow for cables to be bundled and pulled taut against the bottom of the desk, eliminating hanging wires.
As your workstation develops over the years, it's likely that you'll need to re-bundle wires for routing or storage inside the wire management tray. A set of 10 reusable cable ties is also included, allowing for modification of cable bundling as needed without needing to replace individual cable ties.
Additionally, the Advanced Wire Management Kit provides a desk-to-wall cable organizer to organize wires running from an outlet or equipment to your desk in a single bundle. The desk-to-wall cable organizer's heavy-duty "spiral" design protects the cables inside from wear and tear, while also allowing cables to be integrated into the organizer or removed from it easily. An included quick wire add/remove tool rapidly and efficiently routes cables into the organizer.
Finally, 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 can be drilled at the rear edge of your desk on either the left, right or center, or a combination of the three. Corner desk grommet holes are drilled 3.5'' from the left or right side and 2.5'' from the rear edge, with central grommet holes placed in the center of the desk 2.5'' from the rear edge. For custom grommet hole positions, please call us at 1-800-531-3746.
Each grommet hole includes your choice of a black or chrome grommet hole cover, or an UPLIFT Power Grommet. Black grommet hole covers feature flip-top tabs that cover the cord slot when not in use. UPLIFT Power Grommets feature two UL-approved built-in power outlets, as well as a small hole to feed through other cables. 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. Standard grommet holes with covers are 3" in diameter, and power grommets are slightly larger at 3.125" wide to accommodate your outlets.
The UPLIFT 970 Height-Adjustable Standing Desk can be ordered with optional casters. The casters come in a set of four, and can be locked to keep the desk stationary, but easily unlocked when you want to roll the desk.
Please note: the casters will add approximately 1.5 inches of height to your desk.
Monitor arms allow you to easily move your monitor in and out, side-to-side, and up and down, while allowing you to make use of your desktop surface. Monitor arms help you keep good posture as you look at your screen, while avoiding eye strain. Monitor stands that typically come with a new monitor are not ergonomic, and most people end up pushing their monitor too far back on their desks. Monitor arms give you more control, encourage comfortable posture, and save desk space. Most people that purchase a monitor arm come back and say they should have gone with a monitor arm years ago.
The Innovative EVO II Monitor Arm is a stylish, heavy-duty monitor arm that provides complete fingertip adjustment for height, depth and lateral movement. They support monitors weighing up to 20 lbs. with an adjustable vertical counterbalance system that allows for fingertip vertical monitor adjustment, and are available in black, silver or chrome. If you are looking for a dual monitor solution, there is our own UPLIFT Dual Monitor Arm, with independent pneumatic gas cylinder adjustment for two monitors up to 17.5 lbs. each.
Add an UPLIFT Sit-Stand desk mat to your desk order, and receive an additional discount off the regular mat price. Our UPLIFT Sit-Stand anti-fatigue desk mats 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. Choose from a 2' x 3' size or a 3' x 5' size.
Note: If you wish to use your UPLIFT Sit-Stand desk 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.

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.
Though they have different platforms, both keyboard trays offer the same intuitive adjustability, wide range of ergonomic features and simple installation. With their easy lift-and-release, knob-free locking height adjustment that adjusts a full 8'', wheel tilt adjustment, and easy-to-read height and tilt indicators, both UPLIFT Keyboard Trays allow you to position your keyboard and mouse in a healthy, comfortable spot, whether seated or standing. The 0.25'' thick phenolic keyboard trays both feature a removable foam palm rest, a foam mouse pad and a cord manager for easy routing of your cables. Either of the low-profile, heavy-duty platforms will get your keyboard and mouse even closer to your lap, allow for compact storage and comfortably fit most keyboard and mouse combinations. These high-quality keyboard tray systems are available at a discounted price when bundled together with your UPLIFT Desk.
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 with a 60'' or wider desktop, you can take advantage of the 360° of rear swivel at the mechanism to rotate your platform around underneath the desktop for storage, or achieve a fully-retractable keyboard tray along the track by removing the crosspieces to form an UPLIFT 920 Desk with no crossbar interference and mounting the full 21'' track under the desk.

The Raynor Evo Chair is an extra-comfortable executive task chair. Covered in soft foam and upholstered in stain-resistant fabric, this chair is available at a significant discount when purchased with your UPLIFT Desk. You won't be sitting as often anymore, but it's still nice to have an attractive and functional chair.
The Muvman Sit-Stand Stool is virtually the perfect accessory for your standing desk. With this ''active seating'' solution, you can take short breaks with your desk at standing height, giving you a third option somewhere between sitting and standing. The Muvman Sit-Stand Stool offers a height adjustable seat, a built-in handle for portability, and a non-slip base for the maximum range of motion with exceptional stability.
Please note: The Muvman ''factory'' model is only available with a black vinyl seat and black base. Red microfiber seat cushion is only available with black base.
We also have a variety of other ergonomic stools that make a great accessory for your UPLIFT Standing Desk.

I chose this product over the Ergo Kangaroo Desktop. Unlike the Kangaroo desktop, its large surface area provides the ability to adjust the viewing depth of the monitor, a key consideration given many widescreen monitors are large and need to be placed far enough away from the eyes to obtain a proper field of view.
