Welcome to our guide on the safe and optimal usage of sit-stand desks. Sit-stand desks offer the flexibility to adjust between sitting and standing positions, promoting comfort and productivity in the workplace. However, it's essential to understand the guidelines and precautions to ensure the longevity of your desk and avoid potential risks. In this article, we'll explore important considerations, including child safety, environmental factors, mechanical limitations, and overheating prevention, to help you make the most of your sit-stand desk while prioritizing safety and functionality. Let's dive in!
Children: It's important to note that our sit-stand tables are not suitable for children under the age of 12. For households with young children, we recommend securing your office space to restrict access to the control box. Even though our desks feature an anti-collision feature to halt the motor, children may inadvertently cause damage to your property.
Environment: Our desks are specifically designed for indoor use in dry areas. Exposure to external elements such as humidity, heat, or water in other environments can corrode the internal components of the motor and control panel, compromising their functionality.
Mechanical Parts: To ensure smooth operation and longevity of your table, it's essential to keep its path free from obstructions. Overloading the table beyond the specified weight limit, including the tabletop's weight, can damage the motor and columns. Avoid placing excessive weight on one corner or area of the desk, as this can lead to uneven weight distribution, potentially causing damage to the tabletop and posing risks of personal and property harm. For added stability, it's advisable to position the desk against a wall.
Standing on the Desk: While our desks are capable of supporting the weight of the average adult, they are not designed for standing on. Attempting to do so may result in the tabletop breaking, leading to personal injury, property damage, and harm to the desk itself.
Overheating: To prevent overheating, we recommend limiting motor usage to two minutes at a time. If additional height adjustments are needed, allow an 18-minute cooldown period before operating the motor again.
