Our 1" thick durable laminate desktops are GREENGUARD-certified and are available in cherry, mahogany, maple, black or white in the following sizes:
The white laminate top option is slightly thicker and made of 60 weight particle board finished with Wilsonart laminate and a matching white PVC T-mold edge.
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 our woodworker's discretion.
Cedar is a beautiful and unique wood, and it is also fairly soft. Please note that applied pressure can result in indentations.
Please note: Certain woods can look lighter when they are new, but will darken over time. Cherry, mesquite, and walnut are especially prone to these natural variations, see a comparison below. Give us a call if you'd like more detailed information: 800-531-3746.
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 laminate and all other Solid Wood desktops are only available Square.
Sides are always square, corners are never sharp, and corner and edge details are as shown in the photos below.
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.
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 that 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 add a natural feel to your work space.
The UPLIFT Height-Adjustable Bike Desk is available with three different base color options -- black, silver and white.
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 instead of the full kit if you prefer just that one part on its own:
Click the video below to get some helpful tips on making the most of your UPLIFT Advanced Wire Management Kit:
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 Height-Adjustable Bike 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.
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.
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 maple, mahogany, cherry or black finish to match your laminate desktop, and it's available at a discounted price when you bundle it with your UPLIFT 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.
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.

*Please note that the up, down and memory keys on the advanced 1-touch digital memory keypad operate as follows: The four memory keys allow the desk to move to one of four preset vertical positions with just one touch, meaning you do not have to hold down a numbered memory key to make an adjustment to a saved position. Please be sure there is adequate clearance above and below your desk, and check cord lengths to insure adequate length of all cords before adjusting the desk height using the memory keys. Or you can simply push and hold down one of the up/down keys until you reach your desired height, if you don't wish to use the preset memory keys.

Uplift Bike Desk
January 3, 2014
I like the general idea very much, and most of this desk works pretty well. The motors are good and the bike works surprisingly well for something that seems so lightweight. I try to stand up for an hour or so a day and also bike for an hour. It seems to be pretty good exercise without being hard enough to make me sweat or get distracted from work. The desk wobbles slightly if your hands exert pressure on the desk while using the bike. It's not a big wobble. In fact, if it was a writing desk or something like that you wouldn't even notice it. To eliminate wobble you could get a 3 leg uplift desk (the UpLift 950). That 3rd leg makes the desk a bit less prone to movement.
