Please note our desk table tops do not have pre-drilled holes. This allows for custom positioning of the top on the frame and the addition of accessories like CPU holders, etc (also, the laminate tabletops are reversible, so holes can't be made until you first decide what side you want to use). As such, a drill will be needed to install the tabletop. After you position the top on the standing desk frame (normally centred), use the wood screws included to attach the desktop to all four corners. Some standing desk models will also have brackets on the central crossbar that can be used for additional support (optional).
Please note that the installation instructions above are only applicable to AnthroDesk tabletops purchased from our website. Other table tops may be used, but installation instructions may vary.
How fast does the Single Motor Standing Desk move up and down?
It moves approximately 2.4cm / 1" a second up OR down. Moving from the lowest to the highest position takes approximately 20 seconds.
What type of shoes should I wear with a standing desk?
We have seen people wear all types of shoes, however, ideally, you should wear shoes that have little or no heel and are naturally comfortable with little pressure on any part of the foot. If you are not used to standing for prolonged periods, we also recommend an anti-fatigue mat such as this one, which can be used with or without shoes (which may be the best option of all!)
Is the desk difficult to assemble?
No! Most people assemble the desks in under an hour (and handyman types can typically assemble the frame in less than 30 minutes). The best time we've heard for assembling the Electric Standing Desk was 20 minutes - let us know if you did it in less time!
How do I install the tabletop/desktop?
After you position the top on the standing desk frame (our default recommendation is to centre it on the frame), use the wood screws included to attach the desktop to all four corners. Some adjustable desk frames will also have brackets on the central crossbar that can be used for additional support (optional).
What height should I use for my standing desk?
This is a decision of personal preference and body type, however, as a VERY general guide, see the following body heights and corresponding maximum desk heights below (and remember if you buy a frame without a tabletop, the desk tabletop will add to the height).
6'3" - 46"
6'2" - 45.5"
6'1" - 45"
6'0" - 44"
5'11" - 43.5"
5'10" - 43"
5'9" - 42"
5'8" - 41.5"
5'7" - 41"
5'6" - 40.5"
5'5" - 40"
5'4" - 39"
5'3" - 38.5"
5'2" - 38"

My desk seems to wobble a bit. What can I do?
There are a few reasons why your desk may wobble a little more than expected. Some slight movement is normal, but nothing that would be distracting or cause concern for monitors or anything else on your desk. Reasons why your desk may be wobbling:
Frame bolts are not sufficiently tightened
The desk frame is over-extended (raised above maximum height)
The floor is not level (and level adjusters are not appropriately set)
The floor is unstable or not sufficiently firm (e.g. plush carpet)
The controller of my electric sit-stand desk shows an error code and is not responding? (sometimes occurs after moving a power outage)
Your desk needs to be reset. Try lowering your desk all the way to the lowest position, disconnect it and wait 30 seconds. Then try again.
