Why choose a Powercore sit stand desk?
All the science says the benefits from stand sit desks only come with regular use; four to five changes a day is the optimal number and our 'one touch' change to a pre-programmed height setting makes it easy to really work your investment.
Our cable management systems mean no loose hanging cables and only one power cable to the wall. You get the basics (Flex) with every desk and $49 buys you the higher end Listo system.
Our anti-collision feature on all standing desks means when an obstacle gets in the way it's no problem. The standing desk will reverse and after a quick reset you'll be away again.
Our standing desks do not move. Height adjustable desks have to be stable at height and the 8mm steel in the legs provide that strength without needing cross-bars that obstruct your legs. Keep in mind that weight on a standing desk ADDS stability.
Our standing desks are reliable. We've sold 4,500 Powercore standing desks across New Zealand over 6 years. We have had to replace components on 4 of them. It means we are comfortable about our 10 year parts warranty on the Powercore Pro standing desk and 5 yrs across our range.
