Do you want a desk that works and plays, as hard you do? The PRO Series Standing Corner Desk features a powerful frame with a lift capacity of up to 200 kgs. 

It will easily raise and lower your entire gaming setup, such as multiple monitors, speakers, desktop PC, and other equipment. The steel frame is sturdily built, remains stable even at the maximum standing height, and is covered by a 10-year warranty.

Two desktops measuring 1950mm x 1800mm are joined underneath into an L-shape. The desktops are available in an easy-to-clean beech, bamboo, or white melamine finish, with optional electric cable hole grommets.

This desk is very easily set up using our included instructional video or setup guide. The adjustability of the frame allows you to have the longer-end desktop on either side. An anti-collision mechanism will protect your desk and surrounding items.

Four height-memory buttons save your preferred height setting and allow you to switch between desk heights for different users in your household. The very powerful dual-motor lifting mechanism provides a smooth transition between sitting and standing heights but operates quietly and will not disturb others in your household. 

The UpDown Desk PRO Series Electric Standing Corner Desk lowers the risk of weight gain and obesity-associated medical conditions caused by sitting for extended periods. The upright position enables better concentration and boosts productivity and creativity at work and play.

            Detailed Analysis

            Suitable For Work And Play

            If you have limited space at home, this space-saving corner desk is equally suited to working from home and gaming, as the large surface area will hold all your gaming and work equipment.

            Thanks to the L-shaped corner design, you can choose which end to have the longer desktop, thereby making the most of your available space. The PRO Series Standing Corner Desk will be your standing gaming station and standing office desk in one convenient space-saving unit.

            Improves Posture

            Sitting for hours at a traditional desk causes problems for your posture and can result in neck stiffness and back pain. More serious medical issues can arise from long-term sitting. 

            A standing desk that ends at your mid-section when standing in front of it, is the most comfortable to use. When typing or gaming, your elbows should preferably be at a 90-degree angle. 

            The PRO Series Corner Desk is designed to be automatically adjusted to the correct height, making it easy for you to observe the correct standing desk posture

            That being said, regular changing from a standing to a seated position is recommended to avoid fatigue. This desk has memory buttons that can be used to switch between your preferred sitting and standing heights

            High Lifting Capacity

            The frame is available in your choice of black or white, and has a maximum weight capacity of up to 200kg, easily coping with the weight of your entire gaming setup as well as your home office items.

            It can be angled anywhere between 90 and 180 degrees and has an adjustable height range of between 64cm to 129cm. It remains wobble-free even under load, at the maximum height.

            Digital Control For Easy Height Adjustment

            Change from a seated to standing position at regular intervals, with the PRO Series Electric Standing Corner desk. The 4 digital adjustment memory buttons will automatically adjust to your preferred sitting and standing heights.

            Super powerful but whisper-quiet, the dual-motor lifting mechanism provides a smooth transition between sitting and standing heights.

            The height-memory buttons not only save your preferred height setting but also allow you to switch between desk heights for different users in your household.

            Optional Accessories

            A monitor arm that clamps securely onto your desk supports monitor weights of up to 8kgs and allows the monitor to sit flush with the back of the desk if required.

            Does your gaming setup involve a desktop computer, multiple monitors, speakers, and other wired equipment? Keep all cables out of your way while gaming with an under-desk cable tray.

            A power rail provides USB and 240v power right where you need it. It clamps securely to the desk and has 2 USB sockets as well as 2 standard AU sockets.
