Desks:

Q: Do you have any local stores I can test your products at?

A: Our products are only available online.

Q: Can I install a keyboard tray and other space-saving accessories to my standing desk?

A: Yes! Please visit our office accessories page to see the variety of keyboard trays, mouse trays, pencil drawers, and more that we offer. These items are custom designed to integrate perfectly with your standing desk. It's important to note, however, that the desk top is ¾” thick. Always take care to ensure mounting screws do not exceed 1/2" in length, in order to prevent damage to the desk. Damage caused by installation of non Stand Up Desk Store accessories is not covered under your limited warrenty.

Q: Will these desks work for me if I am over six feet tall?

A: The experience of customers over six feet varies: some feel the desk height is perfect; others feel it’s too short. We recommend standing up and holding your arm at a ninety-degree angle (as though you are typing) and then measuring the distance from your elbow to the floor. If your elbow is at or below the desk’s maximum height, you’re good to go! 

Q: What is the weight capacity of the standing desks and standing desk converters?

A: Most of our sit stand desks have a capacity of 154 pounds evenly distributed. Our dual motor electric stand up desk models have a weight capacity of 220 pounds evenly distributed. Most of our stand up desk converters have a weight capacity of 35 pounds evenly distributed. For the weight capacity of a specific product, please check the "Specifications" tab on the product page.

Q: Is it optional to install the casters?

A: The casters do not have to be installed, however, keep in mind not installing the caster will reduce (depending on the model of caster) between 1.5" and 3” from the desk's overall height. The desk will still remain stable without the casters. In addition, select models of Stand Up Desk Store desks come with both casters and furniture feet, come with furniture feet with the option to purchase casters separately, or come with furniture feet with no option to purchadse casters. To learn what type of caster and/or furniture feet a specific desk will come with, please check the "Specifications" tab on the product page.

Q: Will I be able to lean on it? Is it safe for kids or schools?

A: Desks have been BIFMA tested. (Business and Institutional Furniture Manufactures’ Association) The desks passed the tilting test amongst other procedures. If the desk comes with casters, taking care to always lock the wheels when it's not being moved will help ensure the desk stays in place.

Q: What side is the crank handle on?

A: Many of our crank-operated desks give you the option of putting the handle on either the left or right side of the desk. Other crank-operated models position the crank on the front of the desk. These typically also feature a retractable crank to allow you to slide it ut of the way when not in use. To learn what type of crank a specific desk will come with, please check the "Specifications" tab on the product page.

Q: Where are your products manufactured?

A: Most Stand Up Desk Store products are quality made in Taiwan or China. Our Artisan Grove™ reclaimed wood standing desks feature desktops crafted by hand in the Chicago area.

Q: What are these desks made of?

A: Most of our desks feature a sturdy and durable top made of medium density fiberboard (MDF) which offers an excellent combination of function, looks, and value. Our Artisan Grove™ reclaimed wood standing desks are made from genuine reclaimed lumber sourced from century old homes, factories, barns, and churches. Our solid wood models feature solid birch, walnut, or rubberwood tops. All of our desks feature robust steel frames with a powder coat painted finish.

Q: Can I attach a monitor mount?

A: On our MDF desktops, you should have plenty of space on the rear edge for a clamp-style monitor mount. Since our solid wood and reclaimed wood desktops are thicker, make sure to check the clamp capacity before purchasing a monitor mount. Also bear in mind that clamp-style mounts may damage a wood desktop. For these and other reasons, a monitor stand is typically a better option with a solid wood desk.


Electric Desk Troubleshooting:

Q: My electric standing desk isn’t raising or lowering properly. How do I troubleshoot it? 

A: The answer depends on which model you own. Following are steps to identify, then troubleshoot your desk.

To Identify Your Electric Stand Up Desk

  1. Look under the desk and count the electric motors. The motors are bolted to the frame.
    • If the desk has a motor at each end of the frame, it is a dual motor model.
    • If there is a motor at only one end of the frame, it is a single motor model.
  2. If you have a single motor model, determine if it is a first generation or second-generation version.
    • A first-generation single motor version has only an “Up” and “Down” button on the keypad. In addition, the motor is black and cylindrical.
    • A second-generation single motor version also features a small digital screen on the keypad, as well as buttons for programmable memory settings. In addition, the motor is black and brick shaped.

First Generation Single Motor Model Troubleshooting:

  • Make sure the desk is plugged in, and all the cables are properly connected. Then try using the keypad to raise and lower the desk.
  • If the desk won’t raise up and only lowers, hold the “Down” button until the desk has lowered to its minimum height (the desk will lower slowly). Once at the minimum height, continue to hold the Down button until the unit moves slightly upward and clicks into place. The desk is now ready for use.
  • If the desk will not raise or lower, unplug the desk for a minimum of three minutes, then reconnect the power. Press the “Up” and “Down” key simultaneously for 10 seconds to reset the motor.

If you are still experiencing issues, contact Stand Up Desk Store Customer Support for additional troubleshooting by sending an email to customerservice@standupdeskstore.com or calling 855-843-7920.

Second Generation Single Motor Model Troubleshooting:

  • If the display reads “HOT,” this indicates the motor is overheated from excessive use. Overheating typically occurs after more than two minutes of continuous use. Unplug the power cable for at least five minutes, then reconnect the power cable.
  • If there is no error code present, make sure the desk is plugged in, and all the cables are properly connected. Then try using the keypad to raise and lower the desk.
  • If the desk is still not working properly, unplug the desk for a minimum of three minutes. This will reset the electronics. Reconnect the power cable, then try using the keypad to raise and lower the desk.

If you are still experiencing issues, contact Stand Up Desk Store Customer Support for additional troubleshooting by sending an email to customerservice@standupdeskstore.com or calling 855-843-7920.

Dual Motor Model Troubleshooting:

  • Check to see if an error code is present on the LCD display. Following is a list of error codes and how to fix them:
  • Code ER1 indicates an issue with an electric motor. Unplug the power cable for at least three minutes then reconnect the power cable. If the error code continues, the motor may be defective.
  • Code ER2 indicates that the motors are out of sync. Unplug the power cable for at least three minutes then reconnect power cable. If the code RST shows on the display, push and hold the down button until the desk reaches its lowest height.
  • Code ER3 indicates an issue with the cables that connect the motors. Make sure all motor cables are connected, unplug power cable for at least three minutes, then reconnect the power cable.
  • Code ER4 indicates a communication issue between the motors and the keypad. Make sure all keypad cables are connected, unplug the power cable for at least three minutes, then reconnect the power cable.
  • Code ER5 indicates the desk is overloaded with weight. The desk can support a maximum of 220 pounds. Remove excess items, and unplug the power cable for at least three minutes, then reconnect the power cable.
  • Code HOT indicates the motor is overheated from excessive use. Overheating typically occurs after more than two minutes of continuous use. Unplug the power cable for at least five minutes, then reconnect the power cable.

If you are still experiencing issues, contact Stand Up Desk Store Customer Support for additional troubleshooting by sending an email to customerservice@standupdeskstore.com or calling 855-843-7920.
