Are you sitting comfortably? Good. Now you should stand up! The ergonomic advice is clear – sitting down for long periods during your working day is simply not good for you. Sit stand desks offer the perfect solution to this. Through the push of a button or flick of a switch, your desk can glide effortlessly to your standing height to help blood flow circulation, promote well-being and increase productivity.

Studies have shown that sitting for long periods of time is one of the greatest contributors to muscular aches, increased blood pressure, and obesity. It’s also been shown to diminish the ability to focus. It’s for these reasons that experts warn against being sedentary for longer than thirty minutes at any one time. Whilst this is useful advice, it poses some difficulty for those working in an office environment where sitting down at a desk for eight hours is an essential part of the job.
It’s for this reason that sit stand desks are being heralded as a workplace revolution by office designers. Allowing users to move between a seated and standing position with ease, they permit staff to remain active and focussed whilst working. Promoting well-being, studies have revealed that users feel more alert and efficient when standing to work. What’s more, the ability to switch between two positions naturally makes sit stand desks a far more flexible solution than traditional fixed or standing desks.
Our sit stand desk range offers high quality solutions from the very best manufacturers. With products from leading brands like Elite and Humanscale, we’re confident that our collection of height adjustable desks will keep your workforce comfortable and productive. Available in a range of sizes, colours, and finishes, there’s a design to suit every kind of office. Ideal for meetings as well as lone working, larger sit stand desks are a perfect way of keeping everyone energised when discussing projects and plans. Easy to install and simple to operate, the desks promise to improve employee satisfaction as well as overall output.
Desks such as the Humanscale Float easily adjusts with a lever mechanism which can be used by employees without any lifting or strenuous movement. The Humanscale Quickstand clamps on to your existing work desk to allow the keyboard tray and monitor to move up or down to the user’s required height.

Over the past week’s we have been closely working with the furniture manufacturers to maintain supply. Demand has been unprecedented due to large numbers of homeworking requests. Until 24th March, all manufacturers were operating normally. Due to the UK Governments continuing advice regarding the Coronavirus Pandemic, some of our manufacturers had been forced to close their manufacturing processes with no prior notice but most are now returning to normal service. Lead times on products may, therefore, vary from the lead times quoted for a limited period and existing orders may take longer than expected. We will do our best to update on existing orders but accurate status info may not be readily available on all individual orders. Any existing orders will take priority now that the factories have resumed production.
We will sometimes be in the office and sometimes working remotely but can still accept and place orders with all manufacturers during this shut down period, even if they have a closure, although most manufacturers are now returning to normal operations (listed below). If we do not answer the office phone immediately, we will respond to your message very quickly. We also have a Quickship Furniture section which is accessible from the homepage. These products are faster delivery items to help with homeworking and are updated daily. Please note the lead times stated on each individual product page. With the Coronavirus Pandemic expected to last for some time, we expect the demand for chairs and desks to remain very high, beyond the movement restrictions and factory closures. We are very well placed to assist with you requirements during this very difficult situation.
