Does my tabletop arrive pre-drilled?

Only ALIVE and ACRYLIC collection desks arrive pre-drilled. If you wish your SOLID oak collection desk to have pre-drilled holes, note the request at the checkout when ordering or inform us in advance by contacting us.

Is it difficult to assemble the desks?

The installation process is relatively straightforward and should take approximately 40 to 60 minutes, even for individuals with no prior experience in setting up adjustable standing desks. However, we recommend having two people present during installation as both the frame and work surface can be quite heavy.

To assist you further, we provide a comprehensive installation guide along with all of our adjustable desks. This guide is user-friendly and is available in English.

If you are located in UK, we can offer assembly service for extra 70£ - 95£

Do you provide cable management?

Each desk is equipped with a height-adjustable frame that features integrated wire management solutions. However, it's essential to be aware that these built-in solutions are relatively basic, primarily designed for one-time cable organization. Managing and accessing your cables after the initial organization may not be as convenient.

To offer you a much better wire management experience. It is possible to purchase an optional cable management solution. This add-on is thoughtfully designed for easy assembly and efficient wire organisation. It ensures that you can effortlessly access and manage your cables whenever needed, providing a more professional and organised workspace.

What is grommet and do I need it for my desk?

Grommets are the perfect solution to keep your desk organised and clean without getting any cables troubling you while you are working. Grommets come in different shapes and sizes, including circular, and rectangular. When choosing your shape, you'll want to keep a few things in mind. For example, how many cables need to fit through the grommet? A rectangular will typically be able to handle more cables than a circular style opening.

The controller shows C11:

The C11 error code occurs when the screws (2 large silver screws located under each desk's feet) connecting the feet to the column are overly tightened. This can restrict the motor's movement, triggering the error.

To fix this, we recommend loosening these screws. It's important not to apply too much force when securing them. Tighten them to a maximum torque of 25 Newtons for proper functionality. Simply put, avoid over-tightening as the threads are designed to securely hold the leg without excessive pressure.

After this adjustment, the C11 error code should no longer be a problem. If you need further assistance, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.

The controller shows C17 or C18:
