Dams has launched the next generation of its best-selling Elev8 range of sit-stand desks which allow the user to electronically adjust the desk height from a sitting to a standing position with the touch of a button.
The new Elev8² height adjustable desks from Dams are available as single desks, back-to-back desks and as a bench desk system, to upgrade and cater for all types of office layouts. Elev8² sit-stand desks are also now available in twin motor (Elev8² Touch) and single motor (Elev8² Mono) variants.
Chris Scott, Dams Managing Director said, “the new Elev8² desk range provides the ideal solution to address the issue of employees who have a sedentary desk job, and who do not spend enough time standing during the working day. There are two main reasons for looking at a sit-stand desk solution - the ability to sit and stand during the average working day has huge health benefits to the user and it’s this active working style that encourages increased staff productivity and reduces absenteeism.
“In addition to the numerous health benefits provided by periodic standing, studies show that height adjustable desks promote creativity, team interaction, collaboration, and the willingness to share ideas.”
On average office workers spend 40 hours a week at work, with the majority of that time spent working at a desk. In fact, the average office worker spends over five and half hours every single day sitting down at work. This is one of the reasons why many employers are now providing workers with height adjustable desks, allowing workers to alternate between sitting and standing throughout the day.
A new optional extra for the Elev8² Touch desks is a digital control box which lets the user position their desktop exactly where they want it, allowing them to raise or lower their desks to saved, personal preferences depending on the style of work being undertaken. The sophisticated track and guidance system allows for four different height settings to be stored, delivering easy-to-use adjustability with a clean design and consistent profile.
Chris added, “put simply, a healthier workforce is a happier, more motivated and more productive workforce. Many people would like to make their health a priority and businesses can help take care of that goal for them by adopting the principles of active, smart office design with the new Elev8² range from Dams.”
