Volante Desktop Sit-Stand Workstationby KV Waterloo
| Additional Resources Usage Tips Accessories |
The Volante Desktop Sit-Stand Workstation from KV Waterloo can be placed on virtually any fixed-height desk to provide users with an instant sit-stand solution. It will fit any desk with a depth equal to or greater than the 23.2" footprint depth. This well-engineered product provides a full 13.8" of height adjustment range. Keyboard height will adjust from roughly 1" to 14.8" above the surface and the upper worksurface from 6.2" to 20". Users simultaneously activate the left and right paddle releases to adjust the height to any point throughout the entire lifting range. Gas cylinders provide lift assistance to minimize the effort required to make adjustments and the unique locking system offers infinite adjustment throughout the entire range. Regardless of the height, the Volante provides a highly stable worksurface and keyboard tray, with no detectable wobbling or movement of the mechanism. The cantilever design of the Volante means that as it rises it also moves out and towards the user, requiring them to step back and away to accommodate the new positioning.
The upper platform for monitor, tablets, or documents is 35.4" wide by 15.7" deep; while the keyboard and mouse tray is 26.4" wide by 13" deep. The keyboard tray features a tilting mechanism (±10°) so users can adjust the keyboard inclination to provide for optimal neutral alignment of their wrists. The 2" grommet hole at the back of the upper platform can serve as a cable guide as well as for attaching a monitor arm should greater elevation be required.
Reduces the Risks Associated with Extended Sitting
- Studies have shown that sitting (and even standing) for prolonged periods of time is a risk factor for health. For those who work at stationary workstations, a desk that gives the user the option to sit and stand throughout the day will help break up those prolonged periods of unhealthy stationary work. The Volante Desktop Sit-Stand Workstation allows the user to adjust the height of the workstation to accommodate both sitting and standing positions whenever desired.
Effortless Height Adjustment
- The Volante Desktop Sit-Stand Workstation provides locking along a continuous range from 6.2" to 20" for the worksurface and 1" to 14.6" for the keyboard tray, allowing users to quickly and precisely adjust the height of the worksurface to the optimal height for the desired workstation configuration (sitting, standing, or anything in-between).
Reduces the Risks Associated with Overreaching
- The Volante Desktop Sit-Stand Workstation provides a 35.4" x 15.7" shallow working area for up to two monitors and other office devices such as calculators, phones, and tablets. Learn More About the Comfort Zone
- Free Standing (No Drilling or Clamping): The Volante Desktop Sit-Stand Workstation is ideal for organizations that prohibit drilling into the desk, or clamping onto its edge. The wide footprint of the base allows the unit to be positioned on a desk top without creating a tipping hazard. Pads underneath the base prevent scuffing or scratching of the desktop.
- Dual Monitor Mounting: The larger worksurface of the Volante (35" wide) provides enough space for two average size monitors (with their stands attached) to comfortably rest on. There is also enough thickness on the back edge of the worksurface to accommodate a desk clamped monitor arm, or one could use the pre-drilled hole at the back to install a through mount for a pole-style monitor arm.
- Gas Cylinder Mechanism: The Volante utilizes two gas cylinders (one for each side) to help effortlessly move the worksurface and keyboard tray up or down. Gas cylinders generally provide smoother movement than spring mechanisms and are quite dependable and durable over time.
- Tilt-Adjustable Keyboard Tray: The Volante also features a tilting mechanism of ± 10°, letting users incline their keyboard in an optimally neutral position for their wrists.
- Z-Style Vertical Motion: Many retrofit desktop units have a cantilevering mechanism that moves the worksurface forward as it is raised. This motion pushes back the user from the desk and may be a problem where space is limited or when worksurface objects are not properly attached to the worksurface. However, the Z-Style mechanism can also be useful if there are shelving units above the back of the desk, since the cantilevering motion may help the desk clear the shelving unit when the desk is raised to the standing height.
- Continuous Height-Adjustment Locking: In order to provide as many height settings as possible within the range of height adjustment, the Volante has allows locking along a continuous range for standing. This makes it easier to achieve the optimal height settings regardless of who is using the device.
- Increased Keyboard Depth and Width: The keyboard tray on the Volante gives increased depth and width for the keyboard and tray, unlike many other retrofit desks. This allows ample room for a standard keyboard and mouse (with mousepad), including central pointing devices.
- No Assembly Required: The Volante to ready to use out of the box and can be set up in a few minutes.
