Barely a month goes by these days without a new report or piece of research being published which shows that people who spend hour after hour rooted to a chair risk developing life-threatening illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer.
The Daily Mail alone has carried three separate major articles in the last four weeks pointing out that standing at a desk for at least some of the day can have substantial health and productivity benefits.
And now the NHS has announced it is to run a year-long trial of height-adjustable desks at three hospitals in Leicestershire.
Little wonder then that we have seen sales of our DeskRite range of sit-stand desks soar over the last year or so.
Now we have extended the range to include a highly affordable bench system of electric sit-stand desking.
Called DeskRite Evolve, the system allows you to simply and easily configure your office from just two desks up to as many as you need.
Evolve has been designed specifically for large scale projects. Using an adjustable sub-frame, the desk width ranges from 1200mm to 1800mm, and is available in a choice of 800mm or 600mm depths.
The frame allows you to change the size of the desks as your business grows, and can be adapted quickly and easily by switching over the desk top and screen.
There are no ‘hidden extras’ with Evolve. The adjustable frame, desktop, desk screen, and full horizontal and vertical cable management are all included in the ultra-competitive price. All you need to decide is the screen fabric and colour and finish of the desktop.
Operated by a simple electric switch control, Evolve allows users to move easily between sitting and standing positions. A simple brace connects the pairs together and eliminates the risk of ‘trapping’ by maintaining a 50mm gap between the desktops.
David Kirtley, sales manager of our Office Environments division, said: “With the proven health and productivity benefits of height-adjustable desking now more compelling than ever, DeskRite Evolve is an easy choice for you and your business.
“It offers a height-adjustable bench desking system that has not been available previously at this price (from £1,319 ex-VAT).
“As well as supplying the desks, we can also help with your space planning so that you make the most cost-effective and efficient use of your office space, and ensure that your staff are not only comfortable and productive, but healthy too.”
