We’ve been making adjustable height desks and tables for 8 years now. We call them crank tables and they have a manual crank to raise and lower the top. The mechanisms were industrial quality, and at the time, electric actuators were not up to the task to lifting our heavy solid wood tops. But technology has caught up and now we’re manufacturing electric sit stand desks of the highest quality.
After reviewing the sit stand desks on the market, we were surprised as they were all unattractive and cheap looking. Our original Crank Desk was the perfect design to revamp with electric actuators. Most of the sit stand desks on the market weigh under 100 lbs, while our original design weighed in over 400 lbs. We thought that was a little too heavy for the average consumer to move around, so we lightened it up some to 250 lbs. It’s still pretty substantial, but not impossible to move. The dual actuators are rated to 540 lbs total. We stress tested them and they held up flawlessly, like the mechanical actuators. They also have a Piezo sensor which detects obstructions, then halts, and reverses to avoid collision while adjusting the height, and the lifts have a 5 year manufacturers warranty.
