Desktop - UpLift 970 Height-Adjustable Stand-Up Desk

UpLift 970 Solid Wood Height-Adjustable Pedestal Stand-Up Desks are available in the following standard sizes (Call us at 800-531-3746 for a quote on a custom size wood desktop):

  • 36'' x 24''
  • 36'' x 30''
  • 42'' x 24''
  • 42'' x 30''
  • 48'' x 24''
  • 48'' x 30''

Uplift Desks are available in the following Solid Wood and Texas Native Wood stocks. All solid woods will use filler of various colors to fill in knots, bug-holes and imperfections in the wood. The filler is usually black, but other colors may be used at the woodworker's discretion.

Desktop Edge - UpLift 970 Height-Adjustable Stand-Up Desk

The Cedar and Mesquite Native Wood desktops are available with three different shape options -- Square, Bark Line Front and Square Back, and Bark Line Front and Back. All other Solid Wood desktops are only available Square.

Uplift 900 Desk bark line edge detail options

Sides are always square, corners are never sharp, and corner and edge details are as shown in the photos below.

UpLift 970 Solid Wood Height-Adjustable Pedestal Stand-Up Desk edge options


Square

If you want a more consistent surface with less filler, select a Square desk finish. Desks with a straight edge have fewer desk edge imperfections because we cut away the character that exists near the bark of a tree.

Bark Line

If you choose the Bark Line option, you may notice that your desktop has more character towards the outer edge. The Cedar wood with barkline is fairly uniform so you will see wood grain and bark contours. The Mesquite wood barkline is more prone to bug trails. We use a clear or black filler where bug trail marks or cracks occur in Mesquite. If you are selecting the Mesquite wood surface, you can expect some character and filler in the wood at the front edge like in the image below. Note that every desk varies, but customers who visit our retail store always love these tops, with slightly more people favoring the Mesquite top aesthetics. Most people do order the barkline option, as it makes the desk look unique and helps adds a natural feel to your work space.

Advanced Wire Management Kit - UpLift 970 Height-Adjustable Stand-Up Desk

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:

  • Wire management tray - a large tray (3.6'' wide x 24'' long) attached to the bottom surface of your desktop that holds the included power strip along with any AC adapters or cord bundles. It is easy to add or remove items.
  • 6-outlet power strip - fits in the wire management tray and allows your monitor, computer, phone, desk lamp or other corded accessories to ride up/down with the desktop so you never run out of cord length when the desk is fully raised.
  • 10 self-adhesive cable mounts
  • 100 single use cable ties
  • 10 reusable cable ties
  • Desk-to-wall cable organizer - conceals the power strip and Ethernet cords going to your wall outlet in a single attractive wire management tube. It's very easy to add/remove wires from the tube with the included wire funnel tool.


Click the video below to get some helpful tips on making the most of your UpLift Advanced Wire Management Kit:

The Advanced Wire Management kit includes everything you need to organize your desk's cable clutter.


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.

The Advanced Wire Management kit includes a wire management tray.

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.

Wire mounts and cable ties allow for a clean, custom wire management solution.

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.

Reusable cable ties allow for on-the-fly modification of your cable management system.

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.

The desk-to-wall cable organizer neatly organizes and protects exposed cords running between your desk and the power outlet.

Grommet Hole - UpLift 970 Height-Adjustable Stand-Up Desk

A 3'' grommet hole can be added to your UpLift desk to allow for through-desk cable routing or monitor arm mounting. The holes can be drilled on the rear of your desk in either the left, right, center, or a combination of the three. Corner desk grommet holes are drilled 2'' 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 desk's rear edge. Each grommet hole includes your choice of black or chrome grommet hole covers. The black grommet hole covers also feature flip-top tabs that cover the cord slot when not in use. For custom grommet hole positions, please call us at 1-800-531-3746.

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.

Footrest - UpLift 970 Height-Adjustable Stand-Up Desk

Add an optional footrest to your standing desk to improve your sit-to-stand experience and your overall health. See the links and descriptions below to determine which footrest would best suit your needs.

  • The Stand2Learn Standing Desk Footrest is unique in that it is specifically designed to reduce fatigue while standing, allowing you to stand longer and increase the benefits of your standing desk. The Stand2Learn footrest has a black powder-coat finish and features dual height foot rails, so it can also serve as a footrest while you sit on a drafting height or sit-to-stand chair.
  • The Humanscale FM100 Foot Machine Footrest is a great option for a sturdy, high-quality affordable footrest. When you are seated, place your feet on the foortrest to easily relieve pressure on your lower back. Angle adjustment is available so you can easily find the most comfortable position. The Humanscale FM100 also features inset, non-skid pads to keep your feet in place.
  • The Humanscale FM300 Foot Machine Footrest features a sturdy steel frame and a natural wood platform with inset non-skid pads. With its ball-bearing rollers, the Humanscale FM300 also allows for leg movement, even while seated, resulting in increased circulation in the lower body and better overall health.
  • The Humanscale FM300B Foot Machine Footrest is similar to the FM300, but with the addition of rolling massage balls. The Humanscale FM300B Foot Machine is available in both a natural wood finish or a dark cherry wood finish, and the platform is easily reversible.
  • The Humanscale FM500 Foot Machine Footrest allows for a constant rocking motion while seated, just like other Humanscale Foot Machines, but with curved aluminum legs like a rocking chair for a unique look. Both functional and stylish, the Humanscale FM500 Foot Machine is available in one of two different wood finishes.

CPU Holder - UpLift 970 Height-Adjustable Stand-Up Desk

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.

A CPU holder is an important consideration when buying a sit-stand desk.

Monitor Arm - UpLift 970 Height-Adjustable Stand-Up Desk

A monitor arm is almost always better than the stands that most monitors come with. Monitor arms allow you to easily move the monitor in and out, side-to-side, and up and down, while allowing you to make use of the desktop surface under the monitor. It is best not to use valuable and convenient desktop space with your monitor stand - most people push their monitor too far back to save desktop space and end up with a hunched back as they strain forward to see the screen. Most people that we sell a monitor arm to come back to us and say that they should have gone with a monitor arm years ago.

The Budget Single Monitor Arm and Budget Dual Monitor Arm allow you to elevate your VESA-compatible displays off of your desk and easily move the monitor in the horizontal plane (in and out, side-to-side) by using your fingertips to move the monitor. To move the monitor vertically you need to adjust the vertical position of the arm where it mounts to the vertical pole at the back of your desk.

For users who want easier vertical adjustment, there's the Innovative EVO II and Innovative 7500 Wing Dual LCD monitor arms. These stylish, heavy-duty monitor arms provide 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 we offer them at a discount when bundled with your UpLift standing desk.

UpLift desks go great with an UpLift or Innovative monitor arm.

Keyboard Tray - UpLift 970 Height-Adjustable Stand-Up Desk

An ergonomic keyboard tray is an excellent accessory for your UpLift desk, and our UpLift Large Keybord Tray, with its 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, gets your keyboard and mouse in the proper position whether seated or standing. The 27'' wide, low-profile phenolic keyboard tray also features a removable foam palm rest and a separate foam mousing platform with sliding mouse catcher and cord manager that can be switched from the right to left side for ambidextrous mousing. The low-profile, heavy-duty platform gets your keyboard and mouse even closer to your lap, allows for compact storage, and is wide enough to comfortably fit most keyboard and mouse combinations. This high-quality keyboard tray system is available at a discounted price when bundled together with your UpLift desk and comes with an 11" track to mount the keyboard tray without interference from your desk's support underneath. 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.

  • 27'' wide x 11.125'' deep low-profile phenolic platform for both keyboard and mouse
  • 8'' of height adjustment (3'' above track to 5'' below)
  • 20° negative to 10° positive wheel tilt adjustment
  • 360° mechanism swivel
  • 8.125'' diameter foam mousing surface with sliding mouse catcher and cord manager can be switched from left to right side of platform
  • 11'' and 21'' tracks
  • 27'' foam palm support

UpLift Half Circle Desk Drawer - UpLift 970 Height-Adjustable Stand-Up Desk

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.

Discounted Chair - UpLift 970 Height-Adjustable Stand-Up 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 in three fashionable colors 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. We don't recommend this chair for users who sit more than 3-4 hours per day, as they should buy a more ergonomic chair like the Ergohuman V2 chair.

The Raynor Nuvo Mesh Chair with Headrest has an array of ergonomic adjustments that include adjustable lumbar support, a seat slider and adjustable arm rests. The Raynor Nuvo also features extremely comfortable and breathable Italian Soft Touch Mesh upholstery and a removable headrest. Already a great value, bundle this chair with your desk and get a great discount!

The Ergohuman V2 Chair is one of our most popular ergonomic chairs, featuring a five-position back angle tilt lock, four-way adjustable arms, a seat pan slider, and well-pronounced lumbar support. These chairs are available in both mesh and leather upholstery, and can be bundled with the UpLift 900 for great savings!
