Q: How can we assist you match sit-stand desk options with your specific needs?

A: More information on your actual workstation/s can assist us with better matching the sit-stand desk options with your specific needs. Aspects that can make a difference include:

  • The use of a laptop vs a desktop
  • How many screens are used as well as the size of the screens
  • If you need any space for writing of keeping documents.

 

We have found that a photo or two of your workstation can assist us in forming a better idea of the space, your requirements and the options that could work best for you. If you are able to perhaps please send through one or two photos that could be a great help.

 

Q: You are interested in standing desks and products for your office. Are we limited to offering you one specific product/range, or do we have options?

 

A: We offer a range of products and brands to enable us to fit the customer’s specific needs with the best product available – and not just the best option within a specific brand. In doing this, we are also able to provide products covering a wide price range – as budget is often an important consideration.

This sometimes differs between employees and can be assessed with an on-site visit.

 

We do have freestanding desks in our product range but have found that these are generally only really considered with new offices or total revamps. Generally, the on-desk solutions are often the easiest and most cost effective alternative to implement sit-stand desks. We have also found (and research confirms this), that the easy of changing between sitting and standing is a critical factor to ensure continued use of these products. The products below therefore all offer easy adjustability. Below are some of the on-desk options available.

 

Ergotron

We have had great results with products from the Ergotron range of products. They have a 5 year guarantee and are extremely easy to use once installed. They also have the ability to be costumed to a specific user based on their specific need such as monitor size or number of monitors and workspace needed.

  •          Workfit T and TL
  •          Workfit S
  •          Workfit SR

 

Flexispot

Alternatively we have just taken on a new range of products named Flexispot. Flexispot is currently the bestselling on-desk ergonomic brand in the US. As we import and distribute directly, we are able to offer very competitive prices on these units, especially on larger quantities.

These units:

  •          Also have a 5 year guarantee
  •          Can be customised with additional monitor arms and laptop strays If needed
  •          Are very easy to install and adjust.

 

We have samples of most of these units at our showroom at 136 Bree Street in town. We also have sample units available to try out as we feel that it is critical to trail the products (where possible) to ensure that the product meets the specific requirements. You are also welcome to visit our website for more information – www.ergonomicsdirect.co.za I have also attached our end user brochure featuring some of our ergonomic products.
