The 501-32 Series from Conset allows the entire workstation to be raised and lowered easily and quickly at the touch of a button, offering a cost effective solution for sit-stand or multiple-user workstations. The Dual Nested Column design ensures stability throughout the 20" range of adjustment. The frame height adjusts from 26" to 46" at 1" per second with a lift capacity of 176 lb. An Anti-Squeeze Protection System automatically engages if the resistance increases noticeably while the table top is moving down. (Note: it is important to add the thickness of the table top to the frame height to determine the final working height.)
The 501-32 bases will support a wide variety of work surfaces ranging in depth from a minimum of 18" to a maximum of 48". (Note: mounting deeper 36" - 48" work surfaces requires the installation of the 501-32 Support Extender Accessory to ensure stability.) With five model widths available in silver, these frames can accommodate tops ranging in width from 33" to over 68".

Multiple Working Postures
- The 501-32 electric height-adjustable frames enable users to sit, lean or stand during their daily work. Transitioning between these positions encourages greater activity in the work place, bringing associated health benefits as workers are able to move away from a completely sedentary environment.
Infinitely Adjustable, Effortless Height Adjustment
- The base provides infinite adjustment of height from 26" to 46", allowing users to quickly and precisely adjust the worksurface to the optimal height for the desired workstation configuration (sitting, standing, or anything in-between).
No Need to Reduce Size of Worksurface
- Purchasing a complete desk solution allows the user to keep their existing desk size; in many cases they can even re-use their current desk top with the purchase of the base alone. (Most other solutions force users to compromise. To achieve adjustability they must introduce add-on products—which are generally more limited in size—and give up available work surface.)
Accommodates Nearly All Users
- The range of adjustment is sufficient to accommodate nearly all individuals, sitting or standing, up to 6' 4".
- Attractive Modern Styling: The slim legs have contemporary styling and are powder coated in an attractive Silver or Black.
- Supports Wide Range of Tops: This base will support most standard and custom tops anywhere from 18" to 36" in depth. By adding the extender leg option on one side, table tops with return sides of up to 48" can be used.
- Dual Safety Switch: There are two switches (one activation switch and one toggle switch) that must be depressed simultaneously to adjust the height. This design ensures that any change in height requires a conscious action by the operator. Accidental triggering of the height adjustment mechanism cannot occur if only one switch is activated.
- Anti-Squeeze Safety Feature: If the table top meets an obstacle while moving downward, the desk frame will stop. The pressure given before stopping is equal to the weight of the table top and the items placed on it.
- Triple Nesting Columns: The nested telescoping legs provide over 20" of height adjustment with minimal effect on stability even when at maximum height.
- Adjustable Feet: The base includes feet that can be adjusted to ensure the base is level and to compensate for imperfections of the floor.

Note: Always ensure that screws used for mounting the top are of appropriate length.
- Don't stand for too long. Certainly in the initial period, limit your standing to 15 to 20 minutes per session unless you are already used to extended standing.
- Switch! Set a notification on your computer or phone to remind you to switch between sitting and standing on a regular basis. Doing so will help you develop the habit of changing position throughout the day.
- Don't just stand there! Try to consciously use your leg and core muscles as you stand. Allow your body to shift and especially make a point of moving and flexing your leg muscles. By doing so, you encourage healthy blood flow in the lower legs. This can help you avoid the problems that can arise when people stand for a long time without moving.
- Be sure to consider your height as you position your desk. Be aware that the height of your heels and even the time of day will affect your standing height. (Most people will be a 2-3 cm shorter at the end of a day than at the start) Ensure that you adjust the desk accordingly to achieve a neutral posture.
- Try to avoid high heels if you plan to stand while you work. These will tire your feet and increase the risk of damage to the structures of your feet and lower leg.
- Consider an anti-fatigue mat. Many users find that standing is actually tiring, especially so with the hard surfaced floors on which most people work. The short nap carpet that is common in many office or retail environments does little to mitigate the rigidity of the concrete it usually covers. A good anti-fatigue mat can leave you much less fatigued at the end of the day as it encourages flexing of the feet and lower leg muscles. If you wish to regularly switch between standing and sitting you will want a mat which can be easily moved when transitioning between the two positions.
- Try leaning. If you discover that you like working in an upright position but find that extended standing fatigues your body you may wish to consider one of the many seating options designed for working at elevated desks. These reduce the load on your feet by letting you transfer the majority of your weight to the seat. The 'almost upright' stance provides most of the mobility and range of movement that standing offers, while reducing the risk of fatigue. The leaning position also helps you transition effortlessly to a standing position. For available options, visit our Seating for Sit-Stand Workstations category.
