Should You Get the UPLIFT V2 Frame or the UPLIFT V2 Commercial Frame?
Click here to learn more about the differences between the UPLIFT V2 and UPLIFT V2 Commercial frames.
The UPLIFT V2 Frame comes with a height range of 25.5" - 51.1" with a 1" desktop installed. This popular frame is remarkably sturdy, quiet, and designed with some amazing features. This frame (as part of our bamboo desk) was selected as the "Best Standing Desk" by Wirecutter!
The UPLIFT V2 Commercial Frame comes with a height range of 22.6" - 48.7" with a 1" desktop installed. It has a lower starting height, a lower max height, and a wider overall height range than the UPLIFT V2 Frame. It 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 supports ergonomic working postures for 5th percentile females through 95th percentile males, in both seated and standing positions.
48 Accessory Mounting Points on the Frame
Although you might admire it for its sleek design, take a look underneath and you'll see four dozen independent, patent-pending mounting points. This exclusive feature lets you use your desk in a whole new set of ways with our growing collection of desk accessories.
This includes functional additions like desk extensions, CPU holders, and power strips—and fun accessories like an under-desk hammock. Of course, all mounting points are hidden, allowing you to maintain a clean look at your workstation.
Please note: the hammock is only compatible with the UPLIFT V2 Frame. It’s not compatible with the UPLIFT V2 Commercial Frame because it interferes with the stability crossbar.
Unlock the Features of Your UPLIFT V2 Laminate Standing Desk
When you upgrade to the Advanced Keypad, not only do you save time by not having to hold down buttons—you get access to advanced features.
Sit, stand, or perch with quick one-touch adjustments on four programmable buttons. Switch between sitting and standing in a jiff, just by selecting your preferred preset. When you feel like standing, it gives you the perfect amount of time to get up and move your chair out of the way.
Anti-collision sensitivity and a keypad child lock are two improved safety features. If your desk comes into contact with people or objects, it stops quickly for safety. You can also lock your desk height, a feature that comes in handy when there are little ones nearby.
Set your desk's maximum and minimum heights to prevent your desktop from knocking into shelves above or file cabinets below.
To reduce distractions, an auto-dark LED display dims the keypad 10 seconds after you press a button.
A Pause to Say Thank You

As you piece together your perfect workstation, don't forget about power. Work knowing that your devices will stay plugged in and are safe from cord pulling and snagging when you raise and lower your desk. We have a solution for every setup and power requirement, from in-desk to clamp-on power options.
Well-Suited Wire Management Options
Cords that hang loose are not just an eyesore; they can actually cause accidents at sit-stand desks. That's because your desk has the freedom to move, and if your cables don't have enough slack when you adjust heights, they can pull; if they have too much slack, they can get caught on other under-desk accessories. Stop this before it becomes an issue with a little wire management.
Let us help you select tools to organize, store, and protect your cords. Your new desk even comes with a wire management tray to get you started.

Frequently Asked Questions
Click here for FAQs for our UPLIFT V2 Frame and UPLIFT V2 Commercial Frame.
- How will this desktop hold up?
You can't go wrong with our laminate desktop. Designed with durability in mind, this is a desktop that's ready to be there with you throughout the highs and lows at work.
- Isn't laminate a little dated?
Although laminate furniture has had some style fails in the past, we have worked with our designers to create an eye-catching desktop that mimics the look of real wood, minus the price tag. We exclusively offer Wilsonart certified laminates, which come with some of the most diverse finish options around, letting you create the custom desk that suits your style perfectly.
- What is this made out of?
Laminate is composed of thermally-fused melamine laminate over 45 lb density E-1 rated particle board core, and comes with a 3 mm PCV edge banding. All of the layers of the laminate desktop are fused under high pressure treatment to form a very durable surface that's ideal for work. Our laminate desktops are also at one full inch, which are much thicker than the laminate desktop thicknesses offered by our competitors.
- Why isn't my whiteboard desktop erasing completely?
We have found that black dry erase markers tend to perform the best on these desktops. If any residue or ghosting is left behind after erasing the desktop, use Expo White Board Cleaner. If that doesn't remove all of the residue, try 70% isopropyl alcohol. You can also write over the unerased portion with another dry erase marker, let it dry, and then erase it.
- Is this desk suitable for sewing?
You bet! The height adjustment of an UPLIFT desk is great for sewing or crafting. Just lower your desk when you want to sit and sew, and then raise your desk to an ergonomic height when you want to cut out fabric.
- Can I add my own desktop to this?
Yes! If you have your own desktop, check out just the UPLIFT Desk frame without a desktop.
- Will I need more than one person to put my desk together?
You should be able to assemble the desk frame and attach it to the desktop by yourself. However, you will need two people to safely turn the desk right-side up after assembly. Check out our assembly video to see just how easy it is to put your desk together.
Our GREENGUARD-certified laminates are 1" thick and available in a variety of beautiful, durable finishes.
