Here are our recommendations for the best sit-stand desks from AJ Products.
Available in three desktop colours of white, dark grey and beech, the desk provides options for a classic or modern look. The laminate desktop provides an easy-to-clean, scratch resistant surface and features two cable ports to minimise cable clutter around the workstation. The desk’s sturdy T-shaped steel frame has a powder-coated grey finish and, as it doesn’t require a cross brace, leaves plenty of leg space under the desktop.
The desktop is easily raised and lowered by pressing a foot pedal that operates a gas spring. Because no electricity supply is needed for the height adjustment mechanism, there is no need to worry about cables when moving the desk. The desktop can also be tilted to give a better working angle when using a laptop; a bar along the bottom edge holds equipment securely in place.
This desk is great for small offices and is also ideal for a home working setup as it can be stowed at the end of the day by tilting the desktop down and lowering the height to save space if needed.
The desk has a sturdy T-frame with no cross brace to give maximum legroom. It also features an anti-collision function that detects obstacles and responds quickly by stopping the frame from moving, preventing any possible damage to itself or other office equipment while the desk is in motion. The desktop has a hard-wearing and easy-clean laminate surface available in a choice of black, white, oak or birch with a black, white or grey frame.

Standing desk MODULUS, L-shaped, 2000x2000 mm (RRP from £849*)
This triple-motor, electrically height-adjustable desk features a 3-leg frame offering quick, quiet and smooth height adjustment with an anti-collision mechanism designed to protect against crush injuries. The desk has a longer than usual stroke length (the difference between the lowest and highest working height), providing greater flexibility and making it possible to customise the desk for the user, so it’s easy to find the ideal working height whether sitting or standing.
With no cross brace, there is plenty of legroom under the desk and a modesty panel can be fitted as an optional extra to hide cables. The large curved desktop provides lots of workspace to accommodate computer screens, paperwork and more. A durable and easy-to-clean laminated surface ensures the desk looks its best at all times and is available in a choice of traditional or contemporary colours including oak, birch, black or white.
