Useful notes:Frame weight: Frame weight should be an important consideration when doing research into standing desks. Extra weight helps to improve stability and reduce the likelihood of the desk moving around.
Weight rating: Whilst most people never load their desks to even half of its rating, it’s important to know what the desk is capable of. This is for 2 reasons. Firstly, just in case a higher load is required and secondly it tells you at what duty the desk is running at. For example, if you load your desk up with 70kgs, on a desk rated 130kgs, that’s 54% of its capacity; more than half. For the same load on a 150kg rated desk, that’s only 46%. What this tells you is that the desk is not ‘working’ as hard.
Static rating refers to the maximum allowable load of the desk when stationary.
Dynamic rating refers to the maximum allowable load of the desk when moving up or down.
Max width: This is usually the maximum allowable size of a desktop on a frame, taking into consideration overhangs and how those overhangs can affect stability when loaded up.
Min width: This is usually dictated by the minimum size the desk frame can be adjusted to.
Warranty: Warranty terms and conditions can be difficult to decipher. Just make sure you read the fine print. Some warranty conditions don’t cover everything and are easily overlooked by the consumer, eg return shipping is sometimes not included.
Returns policy/Change of mind: As with warranty, there’s often “get out” clauses that render returns almost useless. Be sure to read the fine print. In our experience, 2-3 working weeks is ample time with which to get used to your setup and really give the desk a thorough test.
Current ownership: The above details are the actual owners to the best of our knowledge. Whilst each company will have an Australian presence, an Australian website and an ABN, it does not mean they are owned by Australians or indeed profits remain in Australia.
