The UPLIFT V2 Frame and the UPLIFT V2 Commercial Frame
Click here to learn more about the differences between the UPLIFT V2 Frame and UPLIFT V2 Commercial Frame.
The UPLIFT V2 Frame features a height range of 25.5" - 51.1" with a 1" desktop installed. This popular frame is remarkably sturdy, quiet, and comes with advanced features found in UPLIFT V2 desks alone. This frame was even selected as the Best Standing Desk by Wirecutter!
The UPLIFT V2 Commercial Frame features a height range of 22.6" - 48.7" with a 1" desktop installed. It also has a lower starting height, a lower max height, and a wider overall height range than the UPLIFT V2 Frame. This contract-grade frame meets and exceeds ANSI/BIFMA durability standards, while also meeting the ANSI/BIFMA G1-2013 height standard, a standard required by many of the world's largest companies.
The UPLIFT V2 Commercial Frame also supports ideal ergonomic working postures for 5th percentile females through 95th percentile males, in both seated and standing positions.
Patent-Pending Mounting Points for Accessories
Although you might be admiring it for its sleek design, it's what's inside and hidden from view that will change how you think about what sit-stand desks can do. Four dozen independent, patent-pending mounting points let you use your desk in a whole new set of ways with our growing collection of desk accessories. Now you can attach accessories directly to your desk frame, letting you adapt your desk to your exact needs.
With accessories planned for release like desk extensions, CPU holders, and power strips—and even fun accessories like an under-desk hammock—your desk will be ready for pretty much anything and everything.
A quick note: the hammock is only compatible with the UPLIFT V2 Frame. It’s not compatible with the UPLIFT V2 Commercial Frame due to the fact that it interferes with its stability crossbar.
Unlock All of Your Desk's Features with the Advanced Keypad
When you upgrade to the Advanced Keypad, not only do you save time by not having to hold down buttons—you get to enjoy extra features, too.
Work will feel seamless when adjusting your desk thanks to quick one-touch adjustments on the Advanced Keypad's four programmable buttons. Switch between sitting, standing, perching, and all of your postures in a few seconds, giving you the perfect amount of time to move your chair.
Anti-collision sensitivity and keypad child lock are two improved safety features that were added to the UPLIFT V2 to make sure your desk provides only the safest height adjustments. If your desk does come into contact with people or objects, it will stop quickly and slightly reverse, allowing you to remove whatever was in the way. Keypad child lock lets you lock your desk's height, a feature that really comes in handy when there are little ones nearby.
You'll also have the ability to set your desk's maximum and minimum heights, preventing your desktop from knocking into shelves above or file cabinets below.
And to reduce distractions at your desk and in your area, you'll appreciate the Advanced Keypad's auto-dark LED display, which dims the keypad to distraction-free darkness 10 seconds after you press a button.

The Human Solution customer service provides excellent service as well. I had sent in an e-mail request for a copy of my invoice, which I had misplaced and they had it to me within the hour.
LOVE this desk. Well made, quality materials, easy to assemble, quiet.... I have nothing negative so say about this product. I was even impressed with how well it was packaged/protected for shipping.
My desk was delivered on Friday. I didn't have time to assemble it until Sunday. I wanted to have plenty of time. Desk assembly instructions were very clear and told you everything you needed to know to avoid making any mistakes. Assembled the desk and plugged it in and it worked just fine. Love the look and sturdiness of the desk. When I ordered, also received box set of some desk top items and a standing matt. All looks great and very functional. Price was affordable as well. Love it!
I've been working mostly standing since about 2010, and have used various adjustable desktop risers, one-piece platforms, etc. The last 3-4 years I have been working from home, where I also use a home computer, gaming setup, and a walking treadmill. The problem was that none of my previous pieces offered a solution for ALL my equipment and constantly changing levels (sit/stand/elevated standing on treadmill). All I had was a mish-mash of different equipment, and a constant need to change this around when switching from work to home, or for gaming.
That ended when I got this desk. At 80" in length, it will hold all my work, home, and gaming paraphernalia; the sturdy construction ensures no sagging or weakening in holding 2-3 sets of equipment and monitors; the simple height adjustment makes it a breeze to switch my own level without having to constantly modify positioning of any of my equipment; and finally, I can get the most personal benefit overall with the least amount of aggravation - NONE. Definitely glad I went this route!
Equipment: Eco White 80", power grommets x 2, standard keypad, wire management tray, casters
Very happy with it. It as I wanted and expected :-)
I tried out a standing keyboard stand for 6 months at work, and loved standing, but didn't love my monitors being too low. I purchased a 30x60 black eco desk for my keyboard and 2 monitors. I loved it so much, I purchased a second 30x80 black eco desk to make an 'L' shaped desk and can meet with my clients on the second desk. It is so nice to be able to stand/sit at the push of a button. The first table took about 2 hours to assemble, and the second only took an hour since I knew how it went together. I will be bragging the product up to everyone. Thank you!!
I made the decision to try a standing desk and chose the desk from HumanSolution. My old desk was 72 inches (1.82 m) wide and 36 inches (0.91 m) in depth. This desk is 72 inches wide by 30 inches (0.76 m) wide. I miss the extra width, but not enough to go back to the old desk. The instructions for assembly were very good and it was easy putting the table together. It was a bit more of a challenge adding the CPU holder, keyboard holder and the half-circle drawer, but the instructions were very helpful. I did watch one of the videos and that was extremely helpful. I really like the height adjustment. I've created 3 heights to work at and it goes back and forth each each of the set heights that I selected.
The only disappointment I have with this desk is that it tends to bow in the middle even with the crossbar center rails installed.
This desk was generally easy to put together, i did it myself :) it took me about 2 hours. When you adjust the height, you can hear that the motor is good quality, nothing looks or sounds cheap about this desk. The work space is nice and big, I got the 60". It fits both my monitors vey nice with room to spare for other things. There are cheaper desks, but this one was definitely worth the money. I'm really happy about my impulse purchase lol!
It's a solid well balanced desk that performs as advertised. That's to say all the raves are justified. The accessories are well integrated and I regret that I didn't buy more with my initial order because now I'm paying freight to get them here. But, I couldn't be more impressed - especially when I compare this product to what it available in the office supply store and the like. But for those of you not standing up, whoa! I am so much more productive and alert, instead of a lump of coal a couple of hours into my day!
This product comes standard with a 7-year limited warranty.
