The New Age of Power Has Arrived

Customizable, reconfigurable, and affordable, our patent-pending Power and Data Rail is one of the most unique on the market. No matter how you choose to integrate it into your office blueprint, its features will benefit your office.

Power all your devices in areas where access to outlets is limited and service up to 16 desks with a single, direct wire power infeed. Eliminate unsightly cable clutter on floors, and maintain consistent spacing between desks to keep your workspace attractive and organized. As your office layout changes (and it will at some point), the Power and Data Rail can grow and transition with it. Its patent-pending telescoping post height and rail width enable it to fit workspaces of various shapes and sizes.

Thousands of companies have made the change to open floor plans. While this type of office environment can increase productivity, innovation, and teamwork, it sometimes introduces some unexpected issues related to power and data access, desk spacing organization, noise interruptions, and privacy. If this sounds like your office, our Power and Data Rail is the perfect solution. It can accommodate all your technology demands while simultaneously serving as the foundation of your office design. Deploy it as a central spine in a workstation cluster, a border to outline teams within an office setup, or a continuous benching layout. The Power and Data Rail will work with whatever desks you have, regardless of desk brand.

To put it simply, this product is the answer to all your office layout and power supply needs, and the key to building a space you and your team will enjoy.

Raise. Lower. Expand. Enjoy.

Other rails on the market require you to fit your desks to their fixed rail lengths and post heights, which leaves you with fewer options to expand your layout and innovate. This rail enables you to make changes on the fly as you install and reconfigure desks. Every business owner knows that as a company grows, their workspace needs to grow with it. That's why we've equipped our Power and Data Rail with patent-pending advanced telescoping capabilities, allowing adjustment of both post height and rail width to suit all sorts of workspaces. Its near limitless configurability meets the demands of any floorplan and makes for one of the most affordable office power and data options in the industry.

Our rail covers nearly all desk widths with just two different rail sizes: The rails telescope to fit desktop widths from 36" to 72". Competitors' designs often require you to buy a new fixed rail width each time you reconfigure, which is not only impractical—it's expensive. With our Power and Data Rail, you'll never have to buy additional metal parts until you're ready to add more desks. If you are changing desk sizes, simply add new jumper cables and the telescoping rail is ready to be reconfigured to support today's growing technology demands and increasingly open and adjustable office setups.

  • Short rail telescopes 15.3" to accommodate desktop widths from 36" to 48"
  • Long rail telescopes 22.3" to accommodate desktop widths from 49" to 72"

The rail also telescopes vertically, adjusting the height from the floor to the top of the rail from 17" - 24" (7" of travel). This allows for the rail to be set at a height that doesn't interfere with desks or accessories like monitor arms, and allows you to set the acoustic privacy panel at the right height for users.

Install data into the rail using the two ports or use the included plate to cover the ports.

Data Delivered.

Each Power and Data Rail includes Byrne data plate and adapter kits. These kits add the ability to install different types of data jacks or couplers, such as Ethernet ports, on the face of the rail. After making wiring connections, you simply snap your jacks or couplers (not included) into the appropriate adapters, snap the adapters into the data plate, and then snap the data plate into the Power & Data Rail. Two ports accept network Ethernet cables that are routed through the rail.

If you choose not to install data into the rail, we provide a blank plate for you to cover the unused ports.

Move the Needle by Aligning Your Team

Combine the UPLIFT Power and Data Rail's ability to cleanly distribute power throughout the workspace with the award winning design of UPLIFT V2 Desks, and you have the industry's most multi-faceted and affordable benching solution.

The Power and Data Rail has a bonus feature if used in conjunction with UPLIFT V2 or V2-Commercial Desks: The patented benching pockets in the feet will keep desks consistently spaced. 30" deep desktops are spaced 4" apart at the back and sides, and 24" deep desktops are spaced 6.5" apart at the back and 4" apart at the sides. This spacing provides an organized look that is free of pinch points, all while still allowing enough room behind desks for accessories that mount to desktops.

Already have multiple desks you are working with? We didn't forget other desk brands in our design. The UPLIFT Power and Data Rail was designed with low profile, flat feet to allow any other brand desk to sit on top. Many other Rail brands have higher-profile feet that can cause interference, but the UPLIFT Power and Data Rail's feet can easily accommodate any desk of any brand: Simply adjust the leveling glides on the desk feet if they happen to be positioned on top of Power Rail feet. Remember to take note of other brand power rail designs with higher profile feet that can surprise you with desk interference.

Enhance Privacy, Reduce Noise

All offices experience varying noise levels, and the Power and Data Rail is designed to help with that. Enhance acoustics and privacy in your office with our Acoustic Privacy Panels that attach directly to the top of the Power and Data Rail. The 0.85 Noise Reduction Rating (NRC) value of our Acoustic Privacy Panels means that 85% of the sound waves that contact the material will be captured, while just 15% will reflect back into the room.

The Power and Data rail provides a fixed height for the acoustic panels to present a uniform appearance when you look across your office. However, you can also attach acoustic privacy panels directly to your height adjustable desk to ensure that when you rise to a standing position, your privacy panels rise with you.

Outfitting Today's (and Tomorrow's) Workspaces

The new age of power is here—be the first to take advantage. The UPLIFT Power and Data Rail is designed to be as flexible, scalable, and useful as possible. It's compatible with any desk brand, whether they're height adjustable or fixed height. Harness all the technological power your office needs with the Power and Data Rail's unmatched features—without worrying about wires and cable clutter.

The UPLIFT Power and Data Rail is also compatible with both Byrne 8-Trac and Dekko 8-Wire UL183 recognized electrical components. We recommend and typically use Byrne, but you have the option to substitute Dekko to avoid any supply lead time issues or delays.

You can provide power to four or fewer desks (5-amps per desk supplied by a 20-amp wall plug) without the need of an electrician with the "Plug-in to Wall or Floor Outlet" option that simply plugs into a 20A wall or floor outlet.

Power up to 16 desks (at 5-amps/desk) with a single, direct wire power source infeed. Power source infeeds can be routed to the Power and Data Rail from either the floor, wall, or ceiling. Direct wire power source infeeds accommodate up to four 20A circuits (this will supply 5-amps per desk) and require a licensed electrician to install.

Ceiling power source infeeds can be concealed within our sturdy UPLIFT Power Pole component that telescopes to accommodate ceilings 8' to 12' high. Power Poles are applicable to direct wire power source infeeds only.

Be the Architect of Your Space

This high-performance rail integrates seamlessly alongside workstations, providing unsurpassed cable storage, wire management, and benching to keep desks organized and optimally configured.

Not sure which configurations will work and look best in your office? That's why we're here. Our Power and Data Rail allows you to accommodate dual sided rows, single sided rows, dog bone shape (120-degree pods with rectangular desks in the middle), 3-pack: 120-degree desks, 4-pack: curved corner desks, 4-pack: L-shape desks, C-shape, H-shape, and herringbone shape configurations. These suggested configurations can be combined and configured in many spaces—but with our various Power Rail connectors, configurations are really limitless. Rather than searching for a rail that fits your current office design and then feeling stuck with a fixed setup, our rail empowers you to be the architect of your space, giving the freedom to choose how you want your office to look.
