Introducing the UPLIFT V2 & UPLIFT V2-Commercial L-Shaped Standing Desk

Need more desk space? The L-shape design creates the perfect corner desk: large enough to hold all the things you need to get the job done, with customized styling so you look good doing it.

Your future L-shaped corner desk has been upgraded to the industry-leading, award-winning, height adjustable UPLIFT V2 Frame. It's the same frame design as our 2-leg desk, which Wirecutter selected as the "Best Standing Desk" overall in their comprehensive review.

Whether you choose the UPLIFT V2 Frame or the UPLIFT V2-Commercial Frame, you're getting the most advanced sit-stand desk available.

No Skimping On Desktops Here

Our 1" desktops are 33% thicker than competitors' desktops and bring added stability. We offer three different earth-friendly materials: bamboo, GREENGUARD Gold-certified laminate, and rubberwood solid wood.

Top It Off Any Way You Like

Our L-shaped extensions are designed to be used on either side of your main desktop. During the online desk building process, we ask you which side you want your extension on so we can show you what your new desk will look like—but don't worry if you don't know. You can always change your mind later after you receive your new desk.

Our 1" thick Moso bamboo is an environmentally sustainable resource that is harvested and finished with no chemicals or dyes. It's a natural desktop that is harder than solid wood.

Our GREENGUARD Gold-certified laminates offer a traditional office material and appearance while being produced with only environmentally safe, non-hazardous materials.

Our solid wood rubberwood desktop is made from a dense hardwood that's harvested at the end of its life. It's one of the most resilient desktop materials you'll find anywhere, and is produced and finished using only environmental, non-hazardous glues and coatings.

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.

Innovative Patent-Pending UPLIFT V2 Frame Design

Our patent-pending UPLIFT V2 Frame design includes discreet built-in mounting holes that enable you to attach accessories directly to your frame. This new way of mounting is so robust, you can even hang a hammock from your frame, letting you enjoy a good mid-workday nap when the mood strikes. We have many frame attachments planned for release, including desk extensions, CPU holders, and power strips—just to name a few.

The hammock should not have one end attached to the main side and one to the return side - going diagonally. It should only be used on the same desk top side - that is over 72".

Please note: The Under-Desk Hammock is compatible with the UPLIFT V2 Frame (it's 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. Are these the only sizes offered?

    You wanted quick ship L-shaped desk options, and we delivered! These L-shaped desks are available in our most popular sizes. If you want a custom sized desktop, you can order a custom laminate or solid wood corner desk, sized by the quarter inch to your exact liking. Contact our Customer Service team for a quote.

  2. Are there other colors available?

    For more color choices check out our Custom L-shaped Laminate Desk. If you still aren't satisfied, call our sales pros and they can help you order the custom desk in a wide variety of Wilsonart laminate finishes.

  3. How should I clean my desktop?

    Laminate desktops offer some chemical resistance to make for an extremely durable surface. Simply wipe your desktop with warm soapy water or Lysol wipes. For Bamboo and Rubberwood desktops, it is best to use a soapy, damp rag to clean up any spills. Just be sure to not leave water sitting on the desk for too long, as this can damage the wood's finish.

  4. Is there a gap where the two desktop pieces join together?

    Your desk will include two brackets, which you will use to join the two tops together. Make sure that the desktop is on a level surface when installing the brackets, and that there is no space between the two tops.

  5. Can I order the desk with the bamboo grains going in the same direction on both pieces, instead of perpendicular?

    Unfortunately, no. At this time, our rectangular bamboo desktops only come with the grain running lengthwise.

  6. Will I get added strength if I use a 4-leg frame on my L-shape desk?

    The 3-leg frame supports a hefty 535 lbs, which should be more than enough carrying capacity. Figuring out where to place four legs for an even load would be a challenge, and not effectively add strength to your frame.

  7. How many motors are in the desk frame?

    All of our desks come with a motor in each leg, which means our 3-leg desks come with three motors. This makes our desks quieter, safer, stronger, and more reliable than desks that adjust for height via a single motor.

  8. Do I really need a desk with a three-stage frame?

    If you want more freedom to adjust, you do! UPLIFT Desk frames are three-stage vs the traditional two-stage frames on the market today, making our desks 33% faster to adjust. You'll have a 33% greater height adjustability range, so desks will better fit petite users and kids, all the way up to very tall users or those who plan on adding a treadmill to their sit-stand workstations later.

  9. Can I get my desk with a curved corner cut-out?

    If you want a laminate desk with a curved corner cut-out, check out our custom laminate desktops. However, lead times on those desktops are much longer than this quick ship option.

  10. Is one-touch functionality available on the advanced keypad?

    Yes! Our new control boxes now come with one-touch and constant-touch capabilities! Switch between the two easily! One-Touch requires only a single touch of the 1, 2, 3, or 4 button to move the desktop to a preset memory location. Constant-Touch requires a continuous touch of the 1, 2, 3, or 4 button to move the desktop to a preset memory location.

  11. I bought the advanced keypad but when I try to push the button to adjust, the desk only raises a little bit. Is my keypad broken?

    Your memory presets are probably working. It's more than likely you have an older control box. To recall your preset heights, you have to press-and-hold the memory setting until your desk reaches standing height. This is for safety, since the older UPLIFT 3-Leg Frame did not have the ability to sense an obstruction and stop. If you see the number 99.046.14.0070 printed on the sticker located near the power socket, then your control box is capable of one-touch memory preset function and may need to be reset - see our Programming Your UPLIFT Desk PDF for instructions on locking the keypad, changing the memory presets from one-touch to press-and-hold, and setting new lower or upper height limits.

  12. What's more durable: bamboo, rubberwood, or laminate?

    Laminate is more resistant to moisture and spills. The bamboo top is UV-cured and pressed into a solid surface so you won't have to worry about it splitting over time. Bamboo is also 40% harder than oak. Rubberwood Solid Wood is dense and durable enough to support most desk setups with no issues. It really comes down to your needs and preferences when it comes to choosing which top is right for you.

  13. Are the corners of the desk rounded?

    The corners on the bamboo desktops are slightly rounded, while the corners on the laminate and rubberwood desktops are square.

  14. Does the bamboo scratch easily?

    Bamboo is a durable surface, however it is not unscratchable! You will want to treat your desktop with care instead of throwing things down on top of it or using it as a workbench.

  15. Where do you source your bamboo?

    We use Thai and Chinese bamboo to craft our bamboo desktops. Our bamboo is carbonized, giving it an eye-catching honey-caramel color that you'll love.

  16. Can I get a sample of the bamboo, rubberwood, or laminate?

    We do not offer samples of our laminate, rubberwood, or bamboo desktops. However, you are more than welcome to stop by our Austin showroom and see these desktops in person. We would love to have you!

  17. I live outside of the United States, will this desk work safely with my outlets and voltage?

    All of our desks are designed to run on the US electricity standard of 120 volts. If you're ordering an UPLIFT Desk from outside the United States or Canada, you'll most likely need to plug your desk into a step down transformer, otherwise you run the risk of overloading your desk's control box, which would not be covered by warranty. Please contact our support team if you have any questions.

  18. Did my desk come with the new control box?

    You can easily check to see what version of control box you have by looking at the silver label on the control box. If it says v4.X, you have the newest version of our control box, complete with new safety settings and adjustment options!

  19. What new features can I expect from this updated control box?

    The latest model of our control boxes comes with several exciting new safety features, like Collision Sensitivity, which ensures your desk is sensitive to contact with objects while adjusting, halting accidents in your work area. A new Keypad Lock feature allows you to keep unwanted users from adjusting the desk. You'll also have the ability to toggle between One-Touch and Constant-Touch modes even easier now, so you spend less time manually adjusting your desk. And you'll now be able to switch between centimeters and inches on the keypad.

  20. What is the Keypad Lock feature?

    We designed our version 4 control boxes to be able to be locked for security, so children or unwanted users cannot adjust it when this feature is activated. To lock the keypad, press the "M" button for 5 seconds until the LED switches to "LOC". To unlock it, press the "M" for 5 more seconds.
