V2 Frame Comparisons

We offer two frame type options: the UPLIFT V2 Frame and the UPLIFT V2-Commercial Frame. Click here for a detailed comparison pdf.

Type Similarities: Both the V2 Desk Frame and the V2-Commercial Desk frame have 3-stage legs that adjust 33% faster and have 33% more vertical travel distance than 2-stage legs. They both have a lifting capacity of up to 355 lb, 48 patent-pending accessory mounting points, and are made of sturdy steel construction that comes in four colors. Both frame types achieved the ANSI/BIFMA X5.5-2014 Stability, Strength, and Durability certification.

Frame Type Key Differences: The V2 Desk Frame has a height range of 25.3"-50.9" (with a 1" desktop), while the V2-Commercial Desk Frame has a height range of 22.6"-48.7" (with a 1" desktop) in order to achieve the ANSI/BIFMA G1-2013 height standard.

The V2-Commercial frame was engineered with an inverted leg design and does not include the stability wedge that the V2 Frame has. As a result, a lower crossbar was added to make the V2-Commercial frame as stable as the V2 Frame, and maybe even a tiny bit more stable.

The Lowdown on Frame Styles

The C-Frame and T-Frame styles, as well as different foot lengths, offer different benefits for different preferences.

The C-Frame Style is the most popular because it's designed with the legs and frame body offset to the rear, allowing for more room for mounting accessories under the desk, between the front of the desk and the crossbar, that is just under the desktop and connects the two legs. We're talking about more space for accessories like drawers, storage cubbies, keyboard trays, and CPU holders.

The C-Frame Style also comes with either 27.5" or 24" long feet. Choose the 27.5" feet for maximum stability with a desktop depth of 27.5" or more. Choose the 24" feet if your desktop depth is less than 27.5", to avoid having the feet extend beyond the desktops front and rear edge.

The T-Frame design centers all parts of the frame under the desktop, with equal space in front of and behind the frame. The T-Frame style is typically utilized for conference tables, side tables, desks accessed from both sides, or when symmetry is desired at the expense of accessory mounting space under the desk and legroom. The T-Frame style is only available with 27.5" long feet.

Integrated Mounting Points for Accessories

Look underneath your UPLIFT V2 Frame and you'll see 48 machined, patent-pending mounting points to utilize with our growing collection of desk accessories that mount to these holes. This extremely sturdy system lets you use your desk in new ways.

We have many accessories that attach to the mounting points, including a desk extension with an optional CPU holder adapter, an 8-outlet surge protector, a foot hammock, and even an under-desk hammock—for when you feel like changing your posture from seated to standing to supine (it is as fun as you're thinking it is).

Please note: The hammock is only compatible with the UPLIFT V2 Frame. It's not compatible with the UPLIFT V2-Commercial Frame due to its interference with the lower stability crossbar that crosses between the desk's legs.

Unlock Features with the Advanced Keypad

Adjust the height of your sit-stand desk throughout the day to switch between standing and sitting with the Basic Keypad's large, easy-to-use up and down arrow buttons.

Unlock your UPLIFT Desk's full potential by upgrading to the Advanced Digital Memory Keypad or Advanced Comfort Keypad for memory presets and one-touch control. Wirecutter recommends the "Advanced Comfort Keypad" in their amazing "Wirecutter Standing Desk" review, and we recommend it too.

Both of the Advanced Keypads offer easy, one-touch adjustments on four programmable memory buttons, allowing you to move from sitting to standing quickly, just by selecting your preferred preset. Press a button when you're ready to switch work postures and you'll have the perfect amount of time to move your chair. They also include features such as child lock, max and min desk height settings, anti-Collision sensitivity adjustment, desk error codes with advanced troubleshooting abilities for faster warranty response, and more.

Advanced safety features keep your desk safe. Anti-collision sensitivity and a keypad child lock allow you to work with peace of mind, knowing your desk will only adjust when you want it to. In the chance that it does come into contact with objects or people, it is smart enough to know to stop.

The frame's maximum and minimum heights are also adjustable. That means you can set upper and lower height limits, preventing your desktop from knocking into shelves above, or file cabinets below, ever again.

An auto-dark LED display reduces distractions and helps you concentrate in your workspace, dimming the keypad screen 10 seconds after you use it.

The Advanced Comfort Keypad offers all these same advanced benefits, plus a soft-touch face and raised dividers between buttons give tactile pleasant feedback that the folks at Wirecutter reviews really appreciated.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

  1. What kind of top can I attach to this frame?

    We recommend attaching a desktop that is at least 1" thick and 42" to 80" wide, like one of our hundreds of different UPLIFT Desktops. Your desktop will also need to be compatible with wood screws, which you will use to connect the frame to the desktop. UPLIFT Desktops have machined inserts that allow machine screws (instead of wood screws) to hold the desktop to the frame. Solid wood, laminate, and other sturdy composite materials make for great desktops. A door can work well too!

  2. Can I use this on a circular top?

    Go for it! Just make sure your top is at least 1" thick and is centered on the frame. Test it to make sure you are comfortable with it not tipping over. You are the designer so please make sure it's stable and doesn't overhang the frame too much where it can become a tipping hazard if a person climbs on it.

  3. Can I put a glass top on this?

    We do not recommend installing a glass top on the UPLIFT Desk frame, as you will not be able to secure the glass top with screws. If you have a bit of experience with DIY, you might be able to install a glass desktop that has been first installed on another material (like wood).

  4. Are the screws to attach the frame to my desktop included?

    Yes, the frame includes wood screws needed to attach it to your desktop. They are 3/4" long so we recommend using a desktop that is at least 1" thick. We recommend that you purchase shorter screws separately if your desktop is less than 1" thick, to avoid the screw penetrating all the way through your thin desktop.

  5. Can the frame be painted?

    No, painting the frame would compromise the tolerances between the telescoping leg stages and your desk will cease to function.

  6. What is the difference between the C-Frame and T-Frame style options?

    The C-frame offsets the frame more to the rear of the desktop, allowing more room to mount accessories at the front of the desktop where you need them. The T-frame is centered under the desktop and offers a symmetrical aesthetic and is usually selected for applications like a conference room table where people are on both sides of the table.

UPLIFT V2 and V2-Commercial Standing Desk Frame

 

Which Frame?

The UPLIFT V2 C-Frame with 27.5" feet is the most popular frame configuration, followed by the UPLIFT V2-Commercial C-Frame with 27.5" feet. Both frames received best desk picks by Wirecutter, with the V2-Commercial frame chosen as the #1 Standing Desk.

Frame Types

  • UPLIFT V2 Desk Frame height range: 25.3" - 50.1" (with a 1" desktop)
  • UPLIFT V2-Commercial Desk Frame height range: 22.6"- 48.7" (with a 1" desktop)
  • Note: Adding casters increases starting height

Feet Length

  • Choose 27.5" feet for desktop depths of 27.5" or greater, available in both Frame Styles
  • C-Frame with 24.5" feet for desktops depths less than 27.5"

Frame Style

  • C-Frame Style (most popular): The frame is offset to the back of the desktop, allowing for more legroom and mounting space under the front of the desktop for accessories
  • T-Frame Style: The frame is centered under the desktop, with equal space in front of and behind the frame. This style is symmetrical at the cost of legroom and desktop real estate underneath the desktop for accessories
