The 501-49 Base from Conset brings elegant contemporary styling and improved flexibility to their line of sit/stand electric desk bases. A simple touch of a button will raise or lower the entire workstation - offering easy freedom to change working posture throughout the workday. The tubular leg design enables the removal of the usual lower traverse crossbar without any sacrifice in the stability of the frame. The result is a clean, contemporary, open design with nothing to interfere with leg movement. Black or silver frame colours are completed with chromed steel telescoping inner legs for a distinctive look. An expanding upper bracket permits 4" incremental width changes from a minimum of 45" to a maximum width of 69", making the 501-49 a very versatile desk frame. For those seeking a quieter unit, the 501-49 is substantially quieter than most other current Conset bases (i.e. 501-27, etc.).
The new design also yields an increased upper range - permitting the frame to elevate from 25" to 49" at a rate of up to 1.26"/second. The lower range is slightly higher than other frames but at 25" is generally acceptable for all except the shortest of users.
The 20" deep upper bracket supports make the 501-49 ideal for most desktops and lifting up to 176 lbs. It will not, however, work with tops shallower than a nominal 21" depth.
