Pair this frame with an L-shaped top, and you'll have enough real estate for all of the office tools you'd want close at hand to work productively and comfortably.

With the UPLIFT V2 L-Shaped Standing Desk Frame, we give you the freedom to mount your own desktop on our industry-leading, height adjustable workspace technology. That's a DIY desktop done right. Any top you can design, build, or buy (so long as it meets the specs) is fair game when it comes to creating the precise corner desk you have in mind.

When your goal is to build a strong, reliable, heavy-duty desk that can lift heavier desktops of the L-shaped variety, our UPLIFT V2 L-Shaped Standing Desk Frame definitely delivers. With a triple-motor design that's able to raise and lower up to 535 lb, you can rest assured that your workstation will be brawny enough to handle anything you throw at it (and on it).

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 in 2019-2020 and in 2020-2021. 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. Desks and most accessories come with a 10 Year warranty, desktops have a 5 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-Commercial 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.

Tap Into Your Desk's Full Potential

The Basic Keypad is an entry-level keypad with no advanced features. It has up and down buttons for height adjustment. To change the desk height, press and hold a button until the desk reaches the desired height.

The Advanced Keypad adds these features:

  • 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
  • Desk Height Calibration - Calibrate the displayed height to account for the addition of casters
  • Anti-Collision Sensitivity Adjustments - Dial in the anti-collision system to be exactly where you need it

The Advanced Comfort Keypad includes the Advanced Keypad features and adds an angled face for easier viewing, raised dividers between buttons for no-look operation, and a satisfying, rubberized, soft-touch feel.

The Advanced Paddle Keypad includes the Advanced Keypad features and adds intuitive desk adjustment with no need to look at the keypad. Double-tap the paddle and the desk moves automatically to a preset height. A programmable standing reminder feature notifies you when it's time to stand.

Patent-Pending UPLIFT V2 Frame Design

Our UPLIFT V2 Desk frame design exclusively features discreet built-in mounting holes (patent-pending). These points enable you to attach accessories such as desk extensions, CPU holders, and power strips directly to your frame. This new way of mounting is so robust, you can even hang a hammock from it! We have many frame attachments planned for release, so you can continue your desk's evolution as your needs change.

Please note: The Under-Desk Hammock is compatible with the UPLIFT V2 Frame; it is not compatible with the UPLIFT V2-Commercial frame due to interference with the crossbar.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

  1. Does this frame have to be arranged in an "L" shape?

    Certainly not! You can install the third leg towards the back of a rectangular desktop for additional support. Contact our Sales Pros for more custom configurations.

  2. Can I install my desk's legs in a different configuration than I see in the installation manual?

    We recommend following the guidelines in our assembly manual so that you will have the sturdiest desk possible. If you have any other configurations in mind, contact our Sales Pros, and they will be able to go over custom configurations that offer adequate support.

  3. I just installed my frame but it won't change heights. What is wrong?

    The most likely scenario is that one of the legs has not been properly connected. The desk will only move if all three of the legs are connected. Double-check the connections and then give us a call for further support.

  4. Can I put the third leg anywhere?

    The third leg is separate and can be placed anywhere. That being said, you will want to make sure that the load of your desktop is evenly dispersed between the three legs—or your desk will not be stable.

  5. How many pounds can this frame hold?

    This frame can handle up to 535 pounds.

  6. How many people will I need in order to assemble the 3-leg desk?

    You should be able to attach the frame to the desk by yourself. However, setting the desk right-side up after installation is definitely a two-person job.

  7. What are the maximum dimensions for any desktop I put on this frame?

    For maximum support, we suggest installing a desktop between 36" and 84" wide.

  8. What kind of material should I use for my desktop?

    Make sure you are using a solid desktop that is at least 3/4" to 1" thick. The frame will be attached with wood screws, so make sure your desktop can support those as well.
