The ideal weight capacity is around 40 – 50lbs. Most people have about 15lbs on their desk.

Worksurface Size & Desk Base
30″ x 60″ worksurface and an asymmetrical trapezoid base (38″ wide In the front)
The Lüften lifts and lowers in 3 seconds. That’s 8x faster than any electric desk.
Formica finish, 1.12″ thick, 30×60″ weighs 59lbs
Our desks are built by hand in our Grand Rapids, Michigan facility. The desk actuators (pneumatic and electric lift) are designed and made in Germany. The steel for our desk is sourced in Switzerland because it has the highest tolerance or strength. of any steel type.
The 1.15″ thick worksurfaces come in 5 classic Formica laminate colors. We picked Formica for its durability and long life. The substrate is a recycled wood particle board that will not bend or warp like solid wood tops.
Our desks are very stable because we use high Torrance steel, wide glides, and inset column mounting to reduce movement.
But, the truth is all standing desks will move when they are fully extended. Split leg desks are, by design, more stable while center column desks are less stable but, for most, not noticeable with everyday use.
Yes, there are 4-leg and 3-leg setups that show almost no movement but they are pretty pricey. We find that 95% of users end up not noticing the slight desk movement after a week or 2 of use.
If you have any issue with your desk and want to send it back you’ll have 30 days from the date of purchase to do so.
This is an expensive center column desk from one of the largest furniture groups in the world. It’s an awesome desk, but it moves when extended.
Here is our center column electric, with a human on it, for comparison.
Yes, the keyboard tray should be no issue. There are pre-drilled holes for the control handle but you can mount it anywhere under the work surface to make room for your keyboard tray. We have several keyboard trays installed in our office.
As for floor mats, most come in 36″ x 48″ or smaller which will work with all of our desks.
The Luften and Andern desks have a front leg spread of 48″
Both the 30″x 60″ work surface and the table base weigh around 60lbs.
The desks are tested to perform with the work surface sizes available on their respective product pages. Using a work surface size much larger, smaller, or lighter will affect the performance of the lift. If your desk top is a couple of inches outside of the recommendation it still should work fine.
