Office desks have electronic sit-to-stand interface (with related video)
Our recent GPN standing desk poll shows there’s a rising demand for standing desks. More than half (53 percent) of respondents say that standing desks boost worker productivity. Almost 4 out of 10 (38 percent) say that governments should provide standing desks to all employees.
The Gunlocke Company has added a sit-to-stand option on its most popular office furniture lines.
The firm is responding to requests from office workers who want sit-to-stand functionality in their desk systems. An electronic, push-button sit-to-stand technology is now available on the firm’s Briefing Collection of collaborative contract furniture, as well as on the Trio, Medley, Silea and Credentials private office casegoods lines. The healthy desk offering is available in a variety of price and style options.
“Research proves there are definite health and wellness benefits to standing during the work day, including improved mood and reduced risk of disease. As a result, more and more of our customers were requesting sit-to-stand options on their furniture,” says Jason Wolfanger, the firm’s director of product management and development.
“Sit-to-stand offerings allow any worker – including government employees – to spend less time being sedentary at the office, while still maintaining productivity,” Wolfanger tells GPN.
The firm’s sit-to-stand interface features extension tops that electronically and incrementally rise to a height of 46 inches on freestanding and desk extensions.
Gunlocke designs, manufactures and markets private office and collaborative contract furniture for professional services clients and other office environments – including government clientele.
