Anti-fatique mat

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 grommets

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

Lockable Castors

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.

Programmable controller

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

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.
