Sustainable bamboo desktop
Our height adjustable desks with bamboo desktops are made using 20mm, 3 ply side pressed bamboo with the option of either a straight edge or shark nose chamfered profile and matt lacquer finish.
Bamboo office furniture is a sustainable option in three choices – caramel and natural colour or density bamboo, see additional information for details.
Bamboo Standing Desk
Bamboo is sustainable and super fast growing, up to 1 metre a day. The giant species Moso, belongs to the fastest growing plants in the world. It reaches its final length of up to 20 meters within a couple of months. It takes the stem around 4-5 years to mature and acquire its hardwood like characteristics and the caramel colour is produced naturally through the steaming process during production.
Side Pressed Bamboo Desktops
This is where the bamboo strips are positioned vertically and glued together. This creates a narrow line pattern with the bamboo nodes visible in a subtle way as shown in the product images.
Density Bamboo Desktops
With density the bamboo strips are crushed and then glued under extremely high pressure and results in a much harder product. The way the bamboo is compressed often results in small voids and fissures in the surface and gives a slightly open textured appearance that you don’t get so much with side pressed bamboo. Close-up images below showing the small voids can be seen in the additional information tab.
Natural and caramel side pressed bamboo is also available in a 30mm thickness top. Please contact us for prices. Density bamboo is not available in a 30mm thickness.
We spend one-third of our lives working, which means that our work environment really matters. We were made to move so let your desk help you do that. Bottoms up for a better back and healthier body!

As with any natural products, twisting and warping can occur in varying temperature conditions. We strongly recommend that bamboo desktops are not used in environments with air conditioning or positioned immediately next to an active radiator.
Although the lacquer and oil finishes used are the most robust available in the market even these materials can be damaged. To ensure that your desktop provides years of great service please follow the product care guidance:
- Always use a mouse mat - wear and tear such as constant contact with moving items is not covered under the warranty.
- Don’t use any cleaning agent that contains an abrasive, ammonia, bleach, spirit or other aggressive constituents like sanitiser sprays.
- Use a warm, damp and slightly soapy cloth to wipe over.
- Don’t use any spray cleaners as they can damage the protection of the lacquer finish or use wax, as a build-up can spoil the finish.
- Special care should be taken not to damage the lacquer finish during the first two weeks of installation.
- Lacquer can take several days to be heat-proof and up to two weeks to fully cure.
- We strongly advise placing hot objects on mats rather than the bare top particularly during this time and as a general rule to avoid damage.
- Oiled finishes don’t provide as much protection as lacquer finishes, and they aren’t as durable either.
- Particular care should be taken to wipe up spills immediately. If they are not cleaned immediately, a permanent stain can result.
- If monocoat oil has been used and after time the top feels noticeably dry, apply additional coats.

The Orthomat provides just the right balance between cushioning and foot support for use with a sit standing desk. Bevelled edges and a textured underside help create an anti-curl finish that sits flush to the floor.
Made from durable polyurethane the mat measures 810mm x 500mm.
Cable management grommets help constrain and organise cabling. Two aluminium grommets, one in each corner of the desktop at the back.
Large drawer and pen holder
Large black powder coat steel drawer with separate pull out moulded pen tray. Space saving solution for a clutter-free workspace, that’s fixed neatly to the underside of the desktop. H 40 mm x L 850 mm x W 260 mm
These desks are heavy, so if you want to be able to easily change the position of your desk on a regular basis castors are a recommendation. Set of 4 lockable castors.
A programmable height controller with 4 preset heights is available as an upgrade if you’d prefer, rather than the two button up/down controller that comes as standard. Preset height adjustment is achieved by keeping your finger on the chosen preset until the desk stops automatically at that height.
Vertical cable slinky
This cable slinky is ideal for keeping wires and cables neat and tidy. The weighted bottom keeps it rooted to the ground while its ladder design keeps the cable manager in place and only allows movement in one direction.
Monitor arms allow you to adjust your screen to the optimal viewing position (height, depth and angle) for both standing and sitting. We offer a choice of standard and gas lift monitor arms with single and dual screen options.
Cable management trays
A cable tray is a convenient way to get wires and cables neatly stowed. Wire tray and solid metal options with simple under desktop fixings. Wire trays available in black and silver, solid metal in grey and white.
