The Whiteboard Desktop: Constructed for Creativity

Made from eco-friendly laminate materials and styled after the classic whiteboard you're probably used to seeing in meeting rooms and conference areas, our whiteboard top takes the concept of a blank slate and turns it on its side, literally. Use this innovative desktop surface as a notepad. Draw, record memos, and create erasable calendars—all on your desktop.

Our whiteboard top is GREENGUARD Gold certified; held to rigorous standards, this desktop is made from sustainable materials and sealed with air-safe finishes, to help preserve your indoor air quality as you work.

Looking for another laminate option, or maybe even eco or wood? The UPLIFT V2 Standing Desk is available in a growing number of finishes. For even more information, check out our comprehensive Desktop Brochure.

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.

Adapt Your Desk with Patent-Pending Mounting Points

Your UPLIFT V2 Frame comes with something exclusive to our desks—four dozen independent, patent-pending mounting points, which let you work in a whole new set of ways. Imagine being able to take an afternoon power nap at the office. Well, now you can!

Install our growing collection of desk accessories directly to your desk frame; all holes are built discreetly into the frame, hiding under the desktop for a clean, organized look.

We have many frame attachments planned for release, including desk extensions, power strips, and CPU holders—we even offer an under-desk hammock (available now).

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

*Note, these new tops ship with a clear film on both the top and bottom which protects the glossy surface from scratches. The top side film will need to be removed before use.

  1. What is this laminate made out of?

    Our Whiteboard 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. This high pressure treatment makes for a durable surface that's perfect for writing and doodling.

  2. Is the whiteboard desktop "soft"? Is it hard to take care of?

    Our whiteboard laminate desktop is not soft, but is harder than most other laminate desktops. In other words, you can write on this desktop with no issues or indentations thanks to the melamine top coating that protects it. To safeguard your whiteboard desktop from damage, we do not recommend using it in wet or humid environments, as this can damage the desk. It is also advised that it be kept out of direct sunlight.

  3. How easy is it to clean this whiteboard desk?

    You'll love the whiteboard laminate desktop because it is one of the easiest desktop surfaces to wipe clean! Simply use a dry erase board eraser to erase your markings, and if you want to disinfect your desk, soapy water or Lysol wipes do the trick.

    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.

    Do not use Lysol wipes or Magic Eraser to clean your Whiteboard desktop as they can damage the surface.

  4. Why doesn't this look like your other laminate desktops?

    If you're looking for an eco-friendly and affordable desktop, laminate is for you. These tops come in a variety of finishes, including more traditional wood finishes that you might have seen before. Whiteboard is made with a similar process to the process of our other laminates, but instead of sealing it in a wood finish, it's topped with a whiteboard material, which allows you to write on it with dry erase markers. If you're looking for more of a classic look, we do have a large collection of laminate options - shop our laminate desks here!

  5. How durable and strong is this desk?

    We design all of our desktops to be strong and long lasting. Laminate is a remarkably durable surface and suits most users, but if you have any questions, you can give our support team a call and we can answer any additional questions you might have.

  6. Do I need to buy my own markers and eraser?

    Yes, you will need to purchase dry erase markers and a dry erase board eraser separately.

  7. Why is my whiteboard not erasing well?

    Our whiteboard desktops ship with a protective film on the top and bottom surfaces. Just remove the film and you're good to go!
