It is so important to buy a quality office desk, but what do you look for when buying desks online? Buying quality office desks information from Discount Office Furniture Online
It is so important to buy quality desks for your office (or home office!) as the right office furniture will last you for years. But what do you look for when buying quality office desks?
Here at Discount Office Furniture Online we have put our experience into practice and have created a guide to help you choose quality desks:
1. Metal to Metal Desk Fixings: This might sound unimportant on the face of it, but actually this is vitally important to having a sturdy office desk. Metal to metal desk fixings mean that the desk assembles easily, stays securely in place and is sturdily built, meaning that the desk doesn’t ‘rock’. Poor quality desks will have metal to plastic fixings, resulting in a desk that may ‘wobble’ or could become flimsy when it is moved. You need to select an office desk that has metal-to-metal fixings. All desks supplied by Discount Office Furniture Online have this.
2. Thick Desk Tops: Many cheap office desks only have 18mm desk tops. This is not the mark of a quality desk and will make the desk more flimsy. We recommend that all desks should have 25 mm thick tops. All of our desks conform to this standard, whilst they are still priced to be affordable (from £87, delivered free to mainland UK). Our home office desks have thicker desk tops and are solid hardwood with a lifetime guarantee.
3. Desk Cable Ports: Most of us will have a laptop or a PC on our desk. A cable port is a hole in the desk with a plastic or metal grommet through which any power or other cables can be safely put. This means that you do not have untidy (or potentially dangerous) cables or power leads trailing over the back or sides of your desk. Instead they pass through the desk. Cheaper desks do not have any cable ports. All of our office desks have 2 cable ports as standard, allowing the PC, monitor and power cables to be on the right or left side of the desk.
4. Single Desk Legs: Instead of single upstand legs, which can result in a flimsy or limited-life desk, our desks have double upstand legs for improved rigidity.
5. Desk Colour: Discount Office Furniture offers a range of desk colours, even on our budget desks. We offer beech, maple and (in some cases) Calvados. We also have specific ranges in white or walnut and even in glass to suit your office style. We also have a premium line in Cherry, Ash and Oak.
6. Warranty: At Discount Office Furniture Online, we are convinced of the quality of our desks and offer a 5 year warranty on all of our office desks, no matter how inexpensive they are.
Our extensive experience in office furniture supply means that we only sell quality office desks as our customers demand high standards. Be assured of sturdy desks made with quality tops and fixings when you buy from Discount Office Furniture Online.
