- Build Quality
The Jarvis Desk is one of the best standing desk options on the market. We’ve seen traditional desks of lesser build and aesthetic quality for hundreds of dollars more than the Jarvis Desk, and those lack the ability to change elevation on the fly. Simply put, the Jarvis Bamboo Standing Desk is an excellent purchase

Jarvis Standing Desk Frame Only – Electric Adjustable Height Sit-Stand Desk – 3-Stage Extended Range Frame with Memory Preset Handset Controller – Desk Top Not Included (Alloy, Extended Range)
Whether you’re looking for a traditional sized desk, have the need for a large corner desk configuration, or require a smaller footprint due to space restrictions, Jarvis can handle it. One of the biggest problems with height adjustable desks is the restricted weight capacity they can handle due to limitations of the mechanism or motor. Not so Jarvis, thanks to its policy of fitting a motor to every desk leg, weight carrying capacity is impressive.
Stability is another area where Jarvis excels. Whenever you move a large work surface to a standing height sway is always a potential problem. And it’s for this reason the new three-stage leg frame has been improved to give yet more rigidity even when fully extended. The new leg foot connection has taken care of any sway issues making it stable at all heights and far more substantial than the usual face to face, single bolt connection between foot and leg commonly used on most adjustable desks. This makes it ideal for multiple monitor arrays or other weighty equipment.
Racetrack, a new control box option, has the same rapid responsiveness of the previous controller for stop, start and small adjustments. Additionally, it now includes an auto dark feature that blacks the readout after ten seconds, removing unnecessary visual distractions.
The Jarvis frame comes in a single size with telescopic width adjustment varying from 42.5” to 74”.
Frames use a pair of three stage nesting legs each fitted with heavy duty motors designed to safely support 350lbs. The frame adjusts to a low position of 23.25” up to a maximum height of 48.75” excluding the top.
With top fitted the overall height range is slightly different depending on which type is used.
Here are the differences:
- Powder coated and bamboo tops – minimum 24” maximum 49.5”
- Laminate and hardwood – minimum 24.5” maximum 50”
Height is controlled by either a standard up-down handset switch or the optional Racetrack raise lower controller with digital readout; four memory presets and auto dark when not in use.
- 350 lb. lifting capacity and 25.5” of height adjustability with a top height of 51”.
- The LED programmable push-button memory handset gets you changing positions with speed and ease.
- The frame is built with heavier steel feet (not aluminium) and a lifting column that’s wider at the bottom to make a more grounded, less wobbly, top-heavy desk. Added rubber grommets act as noise and vibration reduction.
- The exterior hardware is hidden in order to provide a cleaner look.
