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.
