UPLIFT 24" Deep Standing Desk

This shallow depth desk was created to help maximize floor space in areas with limited space. It's also great for fitting more furniture into larger spaces. Oftentimes, the rear 6" of a 30" deep desk is not utilized, so this shallow depth desk is a great option to save space. To compensate for the shallower desk we recommend that you use a monitor arm to "float" your monitor (or monitors) above the desktop. This will free up the desktop real estate that monitor stands occupy on your desktop surface.

Saving 6" of space across the back of a 30" desktop can make a big impact on many workspaces at home or in the office. It can make a difference in a smaller sized work-from-home office by allowing you to maintain adequate space for additional furniture. In a commercial office setting, the smaller desk footprint can allow for larger aisles between desks, or for the use of space division products to provide social distancing and more "elbow room" for employees. If used in rows of desks, the difference can lead to another row of desks fitting in the same square footage, meaning more utilization of the facility while still allowing room for social distancing by separating desks more side-to-side.

UPLIFT Desk has been chosen by Wirecutter as the "Best Standing Desk" for 3 years in a row, for the 2019-2020, 2020-2021, and 2021-2022 review periods. Wirecutter did not review this 24" Deep version. The only difference is the depth of the desktop so we believe that the review applies to this desk as well. This 24" deep desktop secures firmly to our patent-pending UPLIFT V2 or V2-Commercial Frame with machine screws and metal inserts within the desktop. The frame includes an accessory mounting point system that accepts accessory attachments directly mounted to the sturdy steel frame.

Shipping is free (in the contiguous US), and our desks typically ship the same day you place your order (unless noted differently on our desk configurator). We provide easy-to-follow assembly videos and instructions to keep it simple for you. We also offer professional installation options.

In addition to making fantastic products, customer service is our primary focus. Which is why we offer free returns with our 30 Day trial with free return shipping and our desks are backed by a 15 Year Warranty!

GREENGUARD-Gold Certified Laminates

Our 1" thick laminate tops are available in a variety of solid colors and wood grains. Laminates are a great choice if you want durability, symmetrical patterns, and consistently matching colors at a great price. Our GREENGUARD-Gold (pdf) laminates meet strict chemical emissions standards for use in indoor spaces—including homes, schools, healthcare environments, and commercial spaces.


Bamboo is 40% harder than oak, making our 1" thick bamboo a solid choice. It is also an eco-friendly choice as bamboo is one of the most ecologically-sustainable materials on the planet. Our bamboo desktops get their color from the carbonization process and use UV-cured clear finish.

Rubberwood Solid Wood

Our environmentally-conscious rubberwood desktops are both sustainable and beautiful. We recycle old Pará rubber trees that have spent thirty years producing latex sap for rubber products. You can appreciate this unique and beautiful solid wood desktop for years to come.

UPLIFT Desk - Raising the Standard in Standing Desks

UPLIFT Desks are engineered for world-class stability, safety, and reliability. They feature an impressive vertical travel range of over 25.5", fast height adjustment, one-touch operation, and individual drive motors in each leg. Both the UPLIFT V2 and UPLIFT V2-Commercial Frames are built with top of the line quality components and precision machining that is built to last. So the desk you invest in today works for you well into the future with our 10-Year warranty. Certifiably sturdy and strong; both frames meet the ANSI/BIFMA X5.5-2014 standard for durability and stability.

The combination of one-to-one motor to leg ratio and advanced collision sensors result in an industry leading anti-collision system. Unlike other desk brands, the UPLIFT Desk anti-collision feature works great as the desk moves up or down, and the sensitivity can be adjusted to account for usage differences.

A desk that raises quickly to a preset height with a touch of a button is a desk that you'll use more often to keep moving. Using a desk should be effortless and fun. UPLIFT Desks are equipped with 3-stage legs with a large vertical range to allow frequent sit-stand transitions throughout each day. UPLIFT Desks have a 33% greater height range and are 33% faster than competing desks. Less-capable 2-stage desks have a substantially limited vertical travel range and are considerably slower, which can impact comfort and productivity if the desk doesn't go low or high enough for the task at hand.

The patent-pending accessory mounting point system allows for quick and sturdy attachment of our exclusive desk accessories without the need to drill holes into your desktop. This mounting system adds sturdy modularity and ultimate customization capabilities to your dream workstation.

Both the UPLIFT V2 and UPLIFT V2-Commercial Desks have been awarded top ratings as the "Best Standing Desk" by Wirecutter.

  1. In Wirecutter's 2019-2020 review, they chose the UPLIFT V2 Desk as the "best standing desk".
  2. In Wirecutter's 2020-2021 review, the UPLIFT V2-Commercial desk was given that same honor.
  3. In Wirecutter's 2021-2022 review, UPLIFT V2 Desk was again chosen as the best standing desk.

UPLIFT Desk has also been rated #1 by TechRadar, 9to5Mac, Lifehacker, Business Insider, Entrepreneur, Wired, and many others.

We stand firmly behind the quality of our products. All UPLIFT Desk products come with a 15 Year Warranty.

Which Frame Type is Right for Me?

The UPLIFT V2 and V2-Commercial desks are equally stable. The V2-Commercial desk has a height range that starts at about 3" lower than the V2 and conforms to the ANSI/BIFMA G1-2013 height standard. The key difference between the two is the height range as listed below:

  • The V2 Desk has a height range of 25.5”-51.1” with a 1” desktop. That’s a 25.6” travel distance. This desk is ideal for users 5'4" to 6'7" tall. Adding a keyboard tray allows the V2 desk to accommodate a 4'10" user.
  • The V2-Commercial Desk has a height range of 22.6”- 48.7” with a 1” desktop. That’s a 26.1” travel distance with a lowest height that's about 3" lower than the V2 desk. This desk is ideal for users 5'0" to 6'3" tall. Adding a keyboard tray allows the V2-Commercial desk to accommodate a 4'6" user
  • Adding casters raises the desk and is a good way to accommodate very tall users. Keep in mind that using an UPLIFT Rocker-X board adds 2.5" to your standing height

The UPLIFT V2 Desk has stability braces at the top of each leg for maximizing stability without the need for a lower crossbar between the legs. To provide the space needed for the stability braces, the leg orientation is inverted with the larger telescoping tube section at the top. These angular stability braces eliminate side-to-side wobble and replace the need for a lower crossbar.

For the V2-Commercial Desk to achieve a 3" lower starting height with a larger overall height adjustment range, the three telescoping leg sections were designed to be shorter and travel farther. Because of this, the telescoping leg stages overlap each other less than they do on the V2 desk legs. To compensate for less overlap, the V2-Commercial desk has thicker legs connected by a lower crossbar. The end result is best-in-class stoutness that matches the award-winning stability of the V2 desk.

The V2-Commercial Desk was developed to optimally accommodate users under 5'4" tall. It meets the ANSI/BIFMA G1-2013 height standard to accommodate users who are 5'0" to 6'3" tall (5th percentile female seated height to 95th percentile male standing height). With the lower starting height, the V2-Commercial Desk also better accommodates children. Adding a keyboard tray allows the V2 desk to accommodate a 4'10" or taller user, and allows the V2-Commercial desk to accommodate a 4'6" or taller user.

We recommend the use of a keyboard tray with either desk to position the keyboard and mouse so your wrists are perfectly straight and the keyboard tray height is perfectly positioned either lower or higher than your desktop height. The optimal position for your keyboard and mouse is to have your upper arms hanging comfortably at your sides, with elbows at about 90 degrees, and wrists perfectly straight while typing and mousing. This will usually place the keyboard tray just above your lap. UPLIFT keyboard trays have 8" of height adjustment and move vertically from 5" below to 3" above the underside of the desktop (without a 2.8" thick track spacer). Adding a keyboard tray allows the V2 desk to accommodate a 4'10" or taller user, and allows the V2-Commercial desk to accommodate a 4'6" or taller user.

  • One touch movement (optional) - Tap a button to transition between sitting and standing height, without holding the button down. Lets you reposition your chair and get ready to stand while the desk moves.
  • Child Safety Lock - Prevent the desk from moving until deactivated
  • Min & Max Height Settings - Prevent your desktop from impacting shelves above or cabinets below
  • Auto-Dark Display - LED display will go dark 10 seconds after use

Patent-Pending Mounting Point System

V2 72x24" Walnut Laminate Standing Desk

Patent-Pending Mounting Point System

Both the UPLIFT V2 Frame and UPLIFT V2-Commercial Frame feature one of our coolest innovations: 48 accessory mounting points, integrated right into the frame body. This patent-pending system gives you four dozen different spots to attach an UPLIFT Desk accessory directly to our sturdy steel desk frame. You can mount a power strip, desk extension (with or without a CPU holder), a hammock, a foot hammock, and more—all using this quick-attach system.

To get you started, we created an under-desk hammock, perfect for assuming a different posture in your own space. It's fun and is a great change of pace. Believe it or not, your desk is strong enough to hold a 200 pound person; just attach the hammock to the frame and give it a try (hammock is not recommended for desktops under 72" wide, please consider a 72" or 80" wide desktop if you'd like to use a desk hammock).

Please note: the hammock is only compatible with the UPLIFT V2 Frame. It's not compatible with the UPLIFT V2-Commercial Frame due to interference with the crossbar under the desk.

Power Solutions for Your Desktop

When working at a height adjustable desk, we recommend that you use power solutions that move with your desk to prevent cords and cables pulling as the desk goes up and down. Our in-desk power grommets, clamp-on power modules, and surge protectors are all tailored for the dynamic desktop, providing you with the cord slack your devices need to keep them from coming unplugged or pulling off your desk as the desk moves.

Keep Those Cables Managed

Especially on a smaller desktop, we recommend that you choose a cable management solution that helps you stay organized and safe. Cables that are routed and bundled look great and set the tone for your workday experience. Properly managing your computer cables also helps prevent snagging as the desk moves to standing or sitting positions. A snag could pull something out of the wall, or off of the desktop.

We include an under-desk wire management tray with every UPLIFT Standing Desk.

Frequently Asked Questions

Click here (pdf) for FAQs for our UPLIFT V2 Frame and UPLIFT V2-Commercial Frame.

  1. I plan on upgrading to a larger desktop later—can I still use this same frame when I do?

    Yes, definitely! The UPLIFT V2 Frames are interchangeable, so most parts are the same on all of our desk bases. If you decide to move to a 30" deep desktop, you will simply need longer feet. If you need help, please contact us for assistance.

  2. Why aren't these sizes also listed with the standard desks?

    We wanted to shine a light on our most compact desktops, while also simplifying the desk buying process. Some accessories and options that work on a 30" deep desk do not work on a 24" deep desk so you'll notice a couple of differences if you use our configurator to build both desks. your choices aren't overwhelming as you build out the standing desk of your dreams.

  3. Why should I use the shallow depth desk over a smaller version of a traditional desk?

    The UPLIFT V2 24" Deep Standing Desks are 24" deep, versus the standard 30"-deep tops available on other UPLIFT Desks. This makes them the perfect solution when you're working with limited office space or when you need to fit more into a larger space.

  4. What if I need a size that isn't listed here?

    If you require a shallow desktop in a size you don't see here, we can make you a custom laminate or solid wood desktop for you. For a quote, call, chat, or email our sales team, and we'll be happy to help!

  5. Do the feet of the desk protrude past the desktop?

    No, our shallow depth desks come with a set of shorter feet that don't stick out past the edge of the desktop.

  6. What accessories can I install on the UPLIFT V2 24" Deep Standing Desk?

    Due to the small amount of space under the desktop, some accessories are unavailable. Build your desk with our configurator where you'll see all the compatible accessories.

  7. Can I buy a desk smaller than 42" wide by 24" deep?

    At this time, the smallest top we offer in stock is 42" wide by 24" deep. You can purchase a custom made laminate or solid wood desktop that is any size as long as it's not smaller than 22" deep and 42" wide. Please contact us for a custom size desktop.

  8. Are there any differences between the shallow depth desk and the regular UPLIFT Desk (besides the depth)?

    The side brackets and feet for the desk frame are shorter so they don't stick out from underneath the desktop, and the desk does not need as large of a base to stabilize it. In other words, you'll get the same great 3-stage frame as offered with the other UPLIFT Desks.

  9. Can I use a treadmill with this size desk?

    The shallower desktop depth is compatible with treadmills, but we recommend a desk that is at least 72" wide for use with a treadmill. At that size, you can keep your treadmill handy while still being able to stand or sit next to it. Some people do place a stool on the treadmill when they'd like to sit.

  10. Which control box is on my desk?

    Just take a peek at the silver label on your control box (under your desktop). If that label indicates v4.1, v4.2, or v4.3, you have the newest version of UPLIFT Desk's control box, complete with new features!

  11. What features are on the version 4 control boxes?
    • When adjusting the height of your desk, it stops when it comes in contact with an object (to help avoid damage and injury). Our updated version 4 control box comes with a handy new safety feature called collision sensitivity. This allows you to set three different levels of sensitivity for this anti-collision function.
    • There's also a keypad lock, which enables you to keep other people (children included) from adjusting the desk height (when it's locked).
    • You can now toggle quickly between one-touch and constant-touch he
