Update 09.01.2023

Very positive customer use-long term reports about the electric height adjustable desk from Linak

Between the years 2022/2023, we conducted a survey of customers who purchased the Linak Desk Frame 2 electric height adjustable desk from us. In this survey, we received consistently very good feedback and ratings for the Linak Desk Frame 2. Among the feedback were not only private customers, but also district offices, universities, technical colleges and industrial companies, as well as various law firms and agencies. Some of these institutions have been using the electric height-adjustable desk frame purchased from us for more than 12 months and have so far been very satisfied with the product and its convenient operation. They are in continuous use there every day and are moved up and down between 2x and 6x per hour.

5-year warranty for Linak's electric height-adjustable desk frame

All customers reported that up to now no complications or desk failures worth mentioning had occurred. These statements confirm exactly why Linak guarantees the Linak Desk Frame 2 for 5 years from the date of purchase! The Linak quality promise in words: Actuator solutions with a 5 year warranty! The LINAK quality promise: We settle for nothing less than perfection - and so should you. As an expression of our confidence, we give a 5-year warranty on all DESKLINE ® products used in office desks and workbenches - to name just a few applications. This means that for a period of 60 months from manufacture, LINAK guarantees DESKLINE products to be in accordance with written specifications and to be free from defects in materials and workmanship during use and maintenance. However, you will probably never find yourself in a situation where you would need to invoke the warranty. Every LINAK product is rigorously tested and our DPPM (defective parts per million) value is exceptionally low. This is a natural result of the fact that we only use high quality components and have first class production facilities operated by competent and experienced staff. In other words, we give a 5-year warranty as standard - but expect that your LINAK solution or system will easily exceed this mark.

Self-sufficient, powerless operation of an electrically height-adjustable desk thanks to the Linak battery box

A real revolution in the field of electric height-adjustable desk frames is the mains-free, voltage-free operation, in places and areas where there is no power outlet or voltage supply. For example, with the Linak battery box you can set up and use the Linak desk frame in the garden or on the terrace. You can use the desk stand in the camper, away from urban areas and also then work remotely from any point. The Linak battery box makes it possible. One battery charge is enough to run Linak's height-adjustable desk for several weeks without recharging.

Update 29.08.2022

Before we go into more detail about the height adjustable desk, we would like to inform you about the manufacturer of this high quality electric height adjustable desk.

There are many suppliers of electric height-adjustable desk systems. There is also a lot of talk, listing and testing on the web. Since this is a fairly young market, many users are not quite clear which electric desk frames are best to buy. One has made so far no experience with this topic. This should change now with this. We'll explain exactly who the manufacturer of our height-adjustable desk is and, further down in the text, what the unique selling points of the Linak Desk Frame 2 are compared to its market competitors.

The manufacturer of the Desk Frame 2

The manufacturer of the Desk Frame 2 is the company Linak from Denmark.

Linak has several manufacturing plants for electric desk legs and electric height-adjustable desk frames in the USA, Europe and the Far East. Linak itself does not sell to end customers, only to the manufacturing furniture industry and OEM's. Linak does not serve end customers. Electric table frames from Linak are used in offices all over the world.

Especially for the US market and its rapidly growing office space needs, Linak invented the Kick and Klick series. In the Kick'n klick series, there is the Desk Frame 2, which was actually designed only for the US American market. However, it has suddenly become apparent that the Desk Frame 2 is the ideal electric height adjustable desk frame not only for office furniture outfitters. In office furniture setup, things have to happen quickly. You can't get hung up on little things like bolting and assembly. That's why Linak invented the Kick'n klick. Due to the simplicity of the assembly, the demand increased immensely and so Linak decided to include the Desk Frame 2 in the program also in Europe and the rest of the world. Mind you that Linak only sells to industrial manufacturers (furniture manufacturing industry).

As an industrial manufacturer, does Linak sell to end customers? No. But you still have the possibility to purchase the high quality Linak Desk Frame as an end customer!

Linak itself does not serve end customers. However, since Lineardirect has been a Linak industrial customer for a long time, Lineardirect has decided to offer you as an end customer directly the well-known Linak quality. Lineardirect sells directly via online store to end customers all over the world, starting from lot size one! So you too have the opportunity to buy the Linak Desk Frame 2 at a very interesting price. Convert your existing rigid desk to an electric height adjustable desk. The Linak Desk Frame 2 makes it possible for you to convert your existing desk to electric height adjustable in just a few steps!

Update 11.07.2022

Linak Desk Frame rollable

The Linak Desk Frame 2, can also be used on site with furniture casters, in which you simply use furniture casters with attached M6 thread instead of the adjusters. At the bottom of the runners there are M6 holes for the fine adjustment of the runners to align the Desk Frame. This is exactly where you can screw on the furniture casters. Just leave out the adjusters and use the space for casters. This makes your electric desk frame rollable and you can more quickly change the position of the desk within the office, or home.

Skid lengths 560 mm and 710 mm

As you have probably already seen, there are two different skid lengths for the Desk Frame 2. We recommend the 560 mm runners for desktops with a maximum depth of 700 mm - 800 mm. If your desk top is larger than 800 mm, then please use the 710 mm runners. With the 710 mm runners, you will definitely get a safe stand with larger table tops. For example, if you want to place a 3D printer or other unit on the desk, we recommend using the 710 mm runner version directly for even more stability.

Important information regarding Desk Frame 2 runners

Due to increasing customer inquiries, it has been brought to our attention that the picture showing the Linak Desk Frame 2 here in the EU shows the skids of the US skid version, where the table legs are recessed. These recessed skids, are only available for the US market. For the EU market, there are only the mounted skids, which are not retractable. In this case, the table drives are mounted directly on the skids and screwed. Unfortunately, it is not possible for us to obtain the recessed skids. Also there is only the picture with the recessed runners from Linak at the moment. It is currently unclear whether there will be an updated EU image from Linak at all. Therefore, we inform you here in this blog post about this topic in detail and also keep you up to date

The electric height adjustable desk is equipped with various sensors that permanently and constantly monitor the height adjustment of the desk. If something gets in the way while the desk is moving, which turns out to be an obstacle, the desk briefly hits the obstacle without pressure and then moves back in the other direction.

Clean motor and cable integration

With the electric height-adjustable desk frame, the motor and all cables needed to operate it are neatly and invisibly integrated into the desk frame and crossbar. There are no other cables to be seen except for the power cable and the connection cable of the control unit. Everything is kept very clean and stylish.

The start-up is very smooth and without jerking. You can leave your coffee cup or glass of water on the table without hesitation. Not a drop will be missed.

Best ecological values

Linak's electric height-adjustable desk is manufactured in Denmark. The steel comes from regional production. The power consumption is absolutely minimal. In standby mode, thanks to LINAK ZERO POWER (TM), only 0 watts of power consumption has been achieved. That is vanishingly small. The Linak Desk Frame is not a China product but is Made in EU!
