Comprehensive range of fully height adjustable desks. People come in all shapes and sizes and so should the working environment. Sitting at a desk that is too small for you is likely to cause a raft of occupational health problems. This is why many larger companies are specifying height adjustability for their office workstations. At Dragonfly, we have a range of height adjustable desk solutions. From basic manual versions, through to advanced electronic and gas lift operation. We can also create bench runs with height adjustable sections - thus allowing modern and contemporary office design.

Height Adjustability

A height adjustable desk should not be confused with a sit stand desk. A height adjustable desk is designed to be used with the person sitting down at the desk. The difference with these desks is the height of the work surface can be adjusted to suit the user. For example, a very tall user struggles to raise their chair higher enough and get their knees under the desk - the result is they sit hunched over the desk with terrible posture. The reverse is true for a shorter person, who finds the height of the desktop uncomfortable for the opposite reasons. The solution is to raise or lower the desktop so it suits you and your seated position.
Height adjustability is available in a variety of different formats and mechanisms. The standard method is to use a small turnable lever that gentle raises or lowers the desk into position. This is ideal if the desk is rarely changed and the same person sits at it each day. The second method uses a gas lift, essentially the same as the type you find on standard office chair. This allows the desk to be raised and lowered quickly with ease. Finally, there are electronic mechanisms. These allow the desks to be raised and lowered at a touch of a button. The more advanced of these have programmable memories, so you can store different heights for different users allowing greater flexibility.
It is now widely accepted that the amount of sitting we do is ruining our health. A recent survey found that many of us spend up to 12 hours a day sitting down. Our technology has made us the most sedentary humans in history. Yet the simple task of standing up for an extra 3 or 4 hours a day could reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes. On average, standing up for three hours will burn 144 calories. Regular changes in the workplace can make long term improvements, and small changes, such as standing at your desk, can make quite a big difference to your health. With our range of products and services you can change the way you work forever, and you'll feel better for it too.
