As with all products there are cheap imports and quality products. At Emotion Office we only sell quality products with a five year warranty, so lets compare like for like on quality products.
A standard straight desk with a 5 year warranty 1200 x 800mm ranges from £190 (inc vat) to £300. This is with a wood effect top in a range of colours similar to standing desks.
A standing desk with a similar wood effect top 1200 x 800mm ranges from £566 (inc vat) to £646, so as an average you could pay up to 3 times the amount for an electric standing desk as opposed to a standard straight desk.
I guess this is sort of obvious really, as you are paying for a frame that extends and 2 motors, but can you put a price on the health benefits?
Standing Desks are proven to help concentration, reduce back and neck pain, reduce fatigue, may lower the risk of weight gain and heart disease, and boost productivity. Standing or sitting for long periods is not good for anyone, so the idea of a standing desk is not to stand all day! but to keep moving.
So we've discussed the obvious seen and unseen reasons for the price tag but what accounts for the difference within the range of height adjustable desk prices?
ENTRY LEVEL SIT STAND DESKS
Our range of entry level desks is called Dynamisk 1, these are in manufactured in Sweden and have a 5 year warranty. They are a twin motor desk with a height range of 700mm to 1200mm. Starting at £500 ex vat.
If you sit quite low at your desk you may find this isn't quite low enough for you and so may wish to consider the next range up.
The Dynamisk 1 is suitable for many of our customers who find they dont have the need for extra height or weight limit, it is available in four frame colours : Black, White, Silver and Anthracite. So once you've chosen your frame colour, check out the 18 different top finishes! Spoilt for choice...
