Today’s standing desks and adjustable workstations often rely on built-in electric motors, which allow you to change the height with a single button press. In this guide, we’ve outlined some of the differences between the typical standing workstation and an electric desk. Whether you need a desktop converter for an existing desk, or you want to invest in a fully electric model, there are a wide variety of options available for different workplace scenarios.

Stationary Workstations

When shopping for a standing desk, you’ll find a range of different desk sizes and shapes, including compact workstations that have just enough space for your computer monitor and keyboard. However, not all workstations are designed with electric power. Instead, they require the user to make manual adjustments by hand, until they find a comfortable position. If you alternate between sitting and standing, it can be tiresome to adjust the workstation with your every move.

Electric Desks

On the other hand, an electric standing workstation like the Seville Classics AIRLIFT S2 has built-in motors and an intuitive digital controller. Simply find your ideal desk height, and then save it in one of the four memory banks. Then, you can press a button to recall your saved settings automatically. This is especially useful when sharing a desk with other people, or when you have different height preferences for sitting and standing.

Desktop Converters

Finally, if you already have a desk that you love, you can invest in an electric sit-to-stand desktop converter like the AIRLIFT. The compact design adds up to 18.9” of height to your existing desk, with enough room for multiple monitors, a keyboard, tablet, and more. There’s also a built-in USB charging port, so you can power a mobile device while working and never lose your flow.

For more than 35 years, Seville Classics has been a leading innovator in the workplace, designing desks that complement a healthy and productive lifestyle. If you’re trying to spend less time sitting at the office, our height-adjustable electric desks give you the option to stand.
