For many years we have been selling height adjustable tables, or more precisely electrically height adjustable desks from our main office furniture site, but not without some problems.
Our main source of height adjustable tables is a Danish company called Conset, and although cheap, their product range is a not very specialised.
Their products, like all things based on price, are a little compromised and therefore the purchaser needs to make some allowance for this. For instance on certain sizes of height adjustable desk the desk frame actually partly blocks the cable port. To a normal person this would be regarded as a bad design but this height adjustable desk manufacturer is willing to accept slight flaws such as these on the basis of cheaper manufacturing costs ( and presumably less intelligent designers).
The other area where these desks have more serious problems, is where they are purchased, for example, by wheelchair users who need an electrically height adjustable desk in order just to get on with their life. The Conset height adjustable desks all have horizontal support beams between the height adjustable legs, which reduce the amount of leg room available. This also restricts the amount of under desk space for CPU’s especially when using a CPU cradle, as the CPU has to be positioned in front of the support beam.
So if you are just after some height adjustable office furniture then in most cases their products will fit the bill.
However, should you be looking for a height adjustable desk which has been specifically designed for a wheelchair user, then Scanflex have some very interesting and very clever products.
We will be dealing with their product range in greater detail later but one of their products which we are very excited about is a four legged height adjustable desk or table, where each of the rectangular legs are height adjustable, and all operated at the same time by one control.
The legs are fixed to a box section perimeter frame, which will support all kinds of standard office desk tops. These box section frames are available in any length which allows for maximum flexibility. And best of all, the perimeter frame gives the user of the desk, the maximum amount of under desk space, and cable ports can be situated anywhere without risking being blocked by the steel frame. Plus there is plenty of room to accommodate a mobile pedestal ( drawer unit on wheels) under the desk as well
This height adjustable desk or table and many other clever designs can be seen at on their website at www.scanflex.co.uk
