Office desks - FAQs
Are there standard office desk dimensions?
Sizes of office desks vary quite broadly and there’s many options you can choose from. This means you can find different widths, depths and heights to meet your needs, whilst also considering the space they will be fitting into.
For example, in terms of height, our standard office desks measure from 720mm up to 735mm. Our bench office desks do typically measure between 720 and 750mm, and of course our height adjustable desks are extremely versatile enabling your workforce to stand up whilst working if they wish, typically raising up to 1300mm.
A good rule of thumb is to get the largest desk which will fit comfortably in the available space as you can never have enough work surface.
What is the weight of an office desk?
The weight of desks can vary. The average office desk with a single set of drawers is usually between 50 to 90 kg.
Why buy new office desks?
The style of your office can have a huge impact on the productivity of your employees. If your office environment has become a little dull over the years, new office furniture can help to bring back that modern flair.
Ensuring your office desks are ergonomically friendly, such as the recent trend in height-adjustable sit and stand desks, can also make a big difference to the wellbeing of your workforce.
New office desks also come with a quality guarantee. Here at Southern Office Furniture, most of our desks are British manufactured and have a 5 year guarantee, based on up to 8 hours daily usage!
Is standing up better than sitting down at your desk?
It’s all about striking the right balance. Positional change - incorporating movement and the choice of work position - can certainly benefit employees. Sitting for long periods of time can impact both our physical and mental wellbeing. Height adjustable desks help to combat these and have been scientifically proven to improve productivity and concentration.
