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.

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.

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 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.

Advanced Keypad Feature: Tap a button or paddle to automagically position the desk. Then have time to move your chair and standing mat as the desk glides to your standing height.

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.

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
