Meet The Recken

Height-Adjustable Electric Standing Desk

The adjustable frame fits table tops up to 72″.

Dual Motor Difference

Dual motor standing desks provide stability, high weight capacity, and synchronized movement for heavy setups and users switching between sitting and standing. Single motor desks are for lighter loads, with no need for precise synchronization or high weight capacity.

The Recken can lift 240lbs without sacrificing performance.

Motor Speed

1.25" per second

Adjustable Top Frame

Adjustable top frames are designed to work with any work surface from 48" up to 70", providing desk flexibility and customization. They can adapt to accommodate varying workspace needs and provide ample room for multiple monitors and desk materials.

Adjustable Range

The Recken can adjust from 43.3” - 59”, this can accommodate work surfaces from 48" up to 70", with a 30" depth.

Available Sizes

48" x 30" and 60" x 30"

Advanced Collision Detection

The Recken desk comes with an ISP software collision detection system, offering precise desk stopping capabilities, enhancing safety and protection during height adjustments. The desk can automatically detect obstacles and prevent potential damage to objects or injury to users.

Collision Detection Type

ISP: Intelligent Sensing Platform

Programmable Handset

The Recken comes with a programmable memory handset featuring 3 save options providing the convenience of quickly accessing preset height positions. This feature allows for consistent and precise adjustments without the need for manual measurements or guessing.

Number of Presets

Three programmable desk height presets.

T Style Stability

T-style legs excel in stability, weight capacity, and spacious under-desk areas. They are suitable for heavier setups and users who prioritize stability during height adjustments. C Style legs, like the Jarvis, are suitable for lighter setups.

Worksurface Colors


Where are your desks made?

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.
Check out our reviews to see what users had to say.

What are the work surfaces made of?

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.
For smaller spaces go with the Andern Pneumatic or Andern Electric with a 40″ wide top.
If you want a large setup go with the Luften, Kloud, or Oben and a 60″ wide top.

Can I attach a keyboard tray, floor mat, etc?

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.
Most other accessories will work.
The Luften and Andern desks have a front leg spread of 48″

What is the total desk weight?

The desk base weighs around 60lbs.
The larger 30″x60″ work surface weighs around 60lbs.
Total weight = around 120lbs.

What is the setup or reset process for electric desks?

SETUP / RESET INSTRUCTIONS: Must be done before use.

1. Press the desktop DOWN and the desktop UP buttons simultaneously on the handset.
