The Stockholm is the most stable sit-stand desk available in the market today and whilst it can be made to move a couple of mm at full height if you push to wobble it, this is not noticeable during normal use.
Please check out our reviews from delighted customers for testimony of this fact - FRISKA reviews. There’s also an independent in-depth review from a customer on Reddit which is well worth worth reading: Reddit Review.

Some more reasons why ours are the steadiest standing desks on the planet:

  • The quality and gauge of the steel we use is world class.
  • The Stockholm standing desk has a thick steel 'U-Beam' securing both legs at the top and providing multiple fixing points to the desktop.
  • Our tolerances between moving components is minimal.
  • Our leg separators / plastic inserts are precisely machined for each leg set giving finer tolerances and less movement between components.
  • The frames are designed to prevent wobble, not designed to a price point.
  • We use beefier fixings than any other manufacturer to assemble the frame with, giving higher torque tolerances with less chance of working loose.
  • We also thoroughly recommend the use of a sturdy monitor arm to help eliminate any unnecessary wobble at your monitor.


  • It’s worth bearing in mind that cheap imported standing desks often have massive stability problems.

    We use the very best motors for height adjustable furniture available in the world today. The motors in our desks are precision manufactured in Sweden for us and covered by our 10-year guarantee. We believe from our knowledge and experience of the industry that our motors are the best in the world.

    The exception to this is with the Aspa where we use Linak motors, due to constraints in the configuration coupled with a lower production volume of this model, which makes it uneconomic to make our own motor for it.
    One of the great things about having our own manufacturing facility is that we are able to make virtually any size desktop you want, call us on 0330 133 1937 or email sales@friskadesk.com with the size you require, and we will do our best to help you achieve your ideal.

    All custom desktops are on a 3-4 week lead time and there may be a small price premium.
    Thankfully, you don't have to do it! It's an extremely delicate job to do as DIY with a high chance of damaging the desktop while attempting the feat.

    You can relax...we cut the cable ports in precisely the right place by CNC machine in our factory and supply neat plastic circular covers to suit.

    We provide a choice of five different positions for the cable ports on the desktop as standard and custom positions can also be ordered if these are not where you want (possible extra lead time of 1-2 days may apply to this at peak times). If you choose the custom option, be sure to email sales@friskadesk.com explaining exactly where you want the holes and include your order number for identification.

    We have a special range for home office use: Height Adjustable Standing Desks for Home Use

    We know that it can be very difficult to successfully incorporate a height adjustable standing desk at home without compromising available living space too much and this range has sizes suited for smaller rooms.
    For the Stockholm the minimum height that the desks will go to is 59.5cm to the underside of the desktop, which is 62cm to the top side. This is one of the lowest positions that any height adjustable desk in the world can achieve.

    The maximum desktop height that the Stockholm extends to is 130cm, which is high enough for anyone up to around 6'10" in height.
    Yes, no problem at all, we have standing desk "Frames Only", which are supplied without desktops allowing your own desktop to be used, these come complete with everything needed for the desk to operate including the up/down switch and all of the fixings, all you need to provide is a desktop.

    Click the link to view the range: Frames Only
    All of the electrical controls that we use in the desks are made by Austrian company, Logic Data, this includes everything from the switches to the control boxes. Logic Data are the best quality electrical controls for furniture available today and we have no hesitation in including all of the electrics in our comprehensive 10-year guarantee.
    For commercial orders we can discount for quantity, generally on orders of 10 units or more, please contact us with your requirement on sales@friskadesk.com and we’ll do our best to meet your budget.
    We are happy to support our incredible front line workers in the NHS and emergency services with a discount, please email a picture of your ID tag to sales@friskadesk.com and we’ll advise what your discount is and how you can claim it.
    The short answer is: No... but nobody really likes being told that, so the long answer is:

    While we would love to be able to offer a discount to everyone, we are priced very competitively for the quality of product that we supply and bearing in mind the 10-year guarantee which is unique to us, the cost per week over the 10 year period for an average desk is just over £1 a week and that is the only amount you will ever pay for that period... with a cheap Chinese imported product it will be less to start with but it could well end up being a lot more expensive in the long run… plus a lot of headaches! With cheap imported product, the profit margins made are high and large discounts can often be offered, because we use only the best European components our margins don’t allow us to give discount away… if we start doing that, we may well not be here for you in 10 years’ time!

    If you really want the quality of a FRISKA standing desk but are struggling to justify the budget needed, check out the FAQ below to find out how you can get your desk now and spread your payments at no extra cost.
    We’re very sympathetic with anyone on a limited budget and we may be able to help you on that as we have a sister company that specialises in cheaper desks AKTIV Desk (click the link) and / or we also offer the option of paying with Klarna (operated by Klarna Bank AB, Stockholm, click the Klarna name for more info), which you may well have heard of, or even used but if you haven’t come across this amazing facility before, it gives you the ability to spread your purchase over 3 months at no extra cost to yourself, enabling you to get the product and specification you really want.
    Height adjustable standing desks can be bought for a widely varying range of prices online, each with differing levels of performance, quality, customer service and guarantees. Anyone looking for a standing desk will agree that it is a bit of a minefield out there!

    As our desks are wholly manufactured in Europe, we don’t aim to compete against low-cost Chinese imports on price alone, and any desk significantly lower priced will be a cheap Chinese import. It is a fact that almost all cheap imports do not comply with EU/UK regulations, they lack stability at height and the guarantees for the electrical parts of the desk are predominantly only for 2 years.

    Because all FRISKA desk frames and motors are precision made to extremely high-quality standards in Sweden with the desktops being made in here in Britain, they are made to last you a lifetime and we cover them with a market-leading 10-year no-nonsense guarantee.

    The Stockholm standing desk has the widest height variation, is the quickest and quietest standing desk available and is also the most stable height adjustable desk at height currently available in Europe.

    On top of that we have 6 frame finishes and 26 different desktop finishes to choose from.
    The feet on the standard Stockholm are 69cm, front to back, which means a top as narrow as 70cm can be used. On the Micro they are 59cm, as this has a 60cm top.

    We also carry both 49cm and 89cm feet in stock in all finishes apart from Chrome (available under accessories), so if you have a custom idea for a desktop, we should be able to produce something to suit!
    Our corner desks can be assembled with either left or right-handed returns, they are provided as two sections, a main section, and a return section. The details below all relate to our standard sized desktops which we keep in stock for next day delivery. For custom corner desk configurations, please read the next FAQ.

    A left-hand return means that when facing the main part of the desk, you will also have a section of desk to your left and vice-versa for the right return. The main section of the desk is 800mm deep (front to back) and the return (or side) section is 600mm deep.
    The main section can either be 1800mm or 1600mm wide and the side return total length is always 1600mm, this is made up of the 800mm depth of the main section plus 800mm for the length of the side return.

    The inlayed control switch is always placed on the opposite side of the return on the main part of the desk, so a left hand return desk would have the switch on the right of the main desk.

    The desktop is provided as two separate pieces. We can make custom sized tops with little cost impact with a 4-week lead time, limitations do apply so email your idea through to sales@friskadesk.com and we’ll try and help make your idea come to life.
    For custom corner desks, it’s worth knowing that the return part of the frame has the same extendable adjustment that the main frame has and with our standard off the shelf 1600mm side return, this section of the frame is closed up to its shortest position, and so can be extended another 600mm giving you 2.2m on the return. An overhang of up to 200mm past the return leg is acceptable, providing heavy objects are not stored on this (as it may cause it to weaken over time), which would give a total length available on the returnof 2.4m.

    The depth of the return when using our standard tops is 600mm, so that it doesn’t encroach too much on the main working space, but this could also be shallower or deeper if required, although the return foot is shorter than the main two feet (490mm as opposed to 690mm), so care needs to be applied to the aesthetics.

    Need to chat over an idea you have? Then give us a call on 0330 133 1937 and we'll do everything we can to help make your dreams come true!
    Our desks come with a standard up/down inlay control switch which is set into the desktop so that it protrudes less than 2mm above the surface of the desk, giving a really clean, minimalistic look.

    We also offer the option of a digital 2-way programmable memory controller which enables 2 memory heights to be programmed in, brilliant for saving your favourite sitting and standing positions. A left or right handed position can be chosen on the Inlay memory switch product page - Memory control switch
    With both the standard up/down and memory inlay control switches a minimum and maximum height can be set that is completely independent of any memory settings.

    Simply lower the desk to the desired position, press and hold both the “up” and “down” buttons together for about 10 seconds, until an audible click is heard. The lowest position possible has now been set. This feature is included to protect any fixtures or furniture beneath the desk against accidental damage.

    Having set a minimum height, a maximum height position can also be set if required by using the same method, this is useful for avoiding collision with obstacles like bookshelves or windowsills etc.

    To reset the desk from these minimum and maximum limits, lower (or raise) the desk until the limit has been reached, press and hold both the “up” and “down” buttons together for at least 10 seconds, until an audible click is heard. The limit has now been removed and the desk can be operated normally.
    Our desks comply with CE marking and all European directives for machinery. One of the safety directives we adhere to is that you have to be in physical contact with the control switch in order for the desk to move.

    Cheap Chinese imports often have the feature of a 'one touch' switch, enabling you to press the switch once and leave the desk to move to its pre-set position, (whether you are in the room or not) this is specifically not approved by EU/UK law and could potentially result in injury, especially to pets and children.

    Our anti-collision sensor operates in both directions and is actually an overload sensor, so when the desktop hits something solid, the sensor in the control box trips the current immediately. It doesn’t operate when hitting something soft like a chair, only when the desk comes to a dead stop. This is the standard 'anti-collision' device found on the majority of electric height adjustable desks and is really a safety cut-out on collision, rather than collision avoidance.

    The main control box has a number of clever protection devices within it, mainly to protect the electronics from 'dirty' electricity, voltage spikes, surges and harmonic distortion.

    Although the safety cut out rarely triggers, when it does, it will partially shut the desk down for safety. You'll know if the desk has gone into 'limp-home' mode if the desk will only allow you to lower it (at about half the normal speed) but you get no response when pressing the up button.

    To reset the desk when it is in safety shut down state, ensure the space under the desk is totally clear, press the down button until the lowest point is reached, release your finger from the button and then press the down button again for at least 10 seconds, until you hear a click and see the whole desk jig down and up a small amount. This has now reset and you're good to go.

    The desktops are commercial grade, 25mm thick melamine faced chipboard (MFC), manufactured in UK from sustainable source wood and have a scratch-resistant, anti-microbial melamine covering with various finish options: Standing Desk Desktops

    We manufacture the desktops in the UK using our own CNC machines, so we can ship orders out the same day as ordered, from within UK.

    We pre-drill holes in the underside of the desktops, in the fixing pattern of the frame and insert metal screw anchors to make for a rock-solid fixing between the frame and desktop, helping to minimise any tendency to wobble.

    We can also drill cable port holes precisely in the position of your choice - Cable Port Hole Details
    Yes, we have a both solid wood and engineered wood desktops.

    The solid wood desktop options available are; Character Oak and reclaimed Vintage Scaffold Board. Due to the inherent tendency of solid wood desktops to warp, shrink and split, these desktops are not made of one solid piece of wood but are engineered with strips of wood, both glued and manufactured with metal strip battens set underneath, within the desktop to prevent all of the above.

    The Character Oak desktop is particularly beautiful to look at all day, is smooth and warm to touch and even smells lovely!

    We also have engineered wood desktops, which are a cheaper option but still gives you a real wood finish, made from a MDF (medium density fibreboard) base encased in a real wood veneer, these desktops are warp-resistant without needing additional battens and have a very solid feel to them and being slightly thicker than our standard MFC tops at 27mm.

    They are available in three different real wood veneers, showcasing the unique and beautiful properties of each different wood grain and are extremely heavy duty.

    All of these beautiful real wood desktops, which are made in the UK are available from stock in our stock sizes for next day delivery.

    We can manufacture almost any size desktop in you need in real wood on a 4 week lead time and a frame-only option will need to be selected when using these desktops.

    Our stock size engineered wood tops can be pre-drilled with metal screw inserts for easy and secure fixing to the frame, if requested, but all special sizes cannot due to machine set up. Metal screw anchors are not needed with either of the solid wood desktops.
    As both the solid wood and engineered wood desktops are natural products, care must be taken to maintain them to avoid premature deterioration and ensure they always look their best.

    Regularly cleaning the top is especially important to ensure that it remains looking its best for years and we recommend that this is done with a warm, mildly soapy cloth and dried immediately afterwards with a dry cloth.

    Under no circumstances should anti-bac or household cleaning products be used as this will attack the lacquer and result in a 'sticky' feel to the surface. The use of polish, anti-bac or household cleaning products is easily detectable and will invalidate the warranty.

    Unlike our MFC desktops, these natural wood tops cannot withstand ink and pencil marks and the veneer will dent if objects are pushed into it or knock against it. In particular, any spills need to be cleaned immediately, as allowing liquid to remain on the surface will eventually destroy the adhesive holding the veneer, resulting in peeling or bubbling on the engineered tops and will stain and possibly warp the solid wood tops.
    The electrical control box is fixed centrally on the desk and comes with a 2m power supply lead and plug, allowing easy connection to your wall socket whether located to the right or left of your desk.

    Check where the nearest electrical wall socket is located before assembly and consider installing a cable tray in order to run an extension cable from the wall plug to the tray to connect all your electrical equipment, including the desk, into this one central point.

    A cable management tray also allows you to hide all extra cable lengths and keep your desktop clear and the area below your desk free of a tangle of cables.
    We have downloadable PDF assembly instructions on every product page, we include a printed set of instructions with your standing desk and we have excellent assembly videos on the website that you will find extremely helpful to watch prior to starting your install: Standing desk installation videos (please note that the videos may show a different method of assembly than the PDF or paper instructions, either way is fine.)

    Still need help? We also offer expert phone support from our technical department if required. Please note that this service is during office hours only: Monday - Friday, 9am-5pm.
    As we are constantly updating our products and introducing new and improved versions, a brochure quickly becomes outdated and is not economically viable to maintain for the fast pace of our development.

    If you either can't find the information you need to help make a decision or are looking for more technical data to help clear up any questions you have, please reach out and give us a call on 0330 133 1937 or send us an email sales@friskadesk.com with your request and we'll respond quickly.
    The only tools needed to build any of the Stockholm range of desks is a 4mm and 5mm hex head Allen key, which we supply with your desk. You may possibly also need a mallet (with non-metallic head - not supplied) for fitting the support arms to the desk legs. The tolerances for this operation are tight and a mallet is occasionally needed.

    For the Aspa, all tables, all AKTIV range, NINJA Club and Competition and some ORIGIN desks you will also need a No.2 Posidrive screwdriver (No. 2 Philips for the AKTIV and NINJA Club and Competition desks) and we recommend the use of an electric screwdriver, without which it is extremely hard work.
    When this happens it is because the desk safety controls have cut in for some reason in order to protect the desk electronics from harm and the desk is in safety shut down mode and simply needs resetting.

    To reset the desk when it is in this safety shut down state, ensure the space under the desk is totally clear, press the down button until the lowest point is reached, release your finger from the button and then press the down button again for at least 10 seconds, until you hear a click and see the whole desk jig down and up a small amount. This has now reset and you're good to go.
