GREENGUARD Gold-certified Laminate Desktops

Sustainable and Safe GREENGUARD Gold-Certified Laminate

Choose from one of our six different GREENGUARD Gold-certified laminate desktops for a safe and sustainable workspace.

GREENGUARD Gold certification means that these desktops have been tested for chemical emissions and meet the standards set by seven different regulating bodies. Translation: you get a desk that's safe to use in your home or office.

These 1" thick desktops are made from an eco-friendly office material that provides a sturdy, long-lasting workspace that fits your budget. Outfit your desk in black or white—or go with walnut, maple, cherry, or ash gray. Enjoy the look of natural woodgrains without paying for solid wood.

Looking for something a little more customized? Reach out to us for our special order Wilsonart laminate options. We also have black and white ergo-edge curve desktops or 3-leg laminate desks available. To read more, check out our comprehensive Desktop Brochure for all of the options available to you.

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.

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.

Power and Wire Management Options by UPLIFT Desk

Power Up!

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.

Space Planning, Compliments of UPLIFT Desk

We understand that furnishing an office can be quite the task. Save time and make it easy on yourself; let our design team lay the foundations for your new office floor plan. We can create a customized layout to meet your needs, however big or small. If you're considering purchasing four or more desks, all you have to do is complete four simple steps, and we'll configure your office desk space for free, no strings attached. With your custom layout, you'll also receive a discounted quote on your order.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.
