Humanscale float is a height-adjustable sit-stand table that meets the demands
of healthier work environments. Float offers more height adjustability, a
greater weight accommodation range, and more work surface options than any other
counterbalance table. And, with architectural lines that belie its sophisticated
functionality, it's all achieved without a clunky support beam that can obstruct
The world's most revolutionary height adjustable table. Float solves the problems and limitations of current-generation height-adjustable tables, gracefully adapting to a vast range of heights and weights with exceptional ease of use and safety features. Float’s ingenious, constant-force spring allows it to move effortlessly and instantly between sitting height and standing height, while accommodating the ergonomic needs of 99% of users.
The dangers of sedentary work - While most office workers sit for the majority of their workdays, research shows that all-day sitting is a serious health risk, potentially leading to chronic disease. Even worse, the harmful effects of long-term sitting can’t be offset by regular exercise or a healthy diet. But standing all day at work isn’t healthy either, causing discomfort and swelling in the legs and feet. Therefore, the most effective way to maintain health and comfort in the workplace is to alternate periodically between sitting and standing postures.
How is Float different?
Currently, most height-adjustable work surfaces are either adjusted by a hand crank, which requires tremendous time and effort to move from one position to another, or by electric motors, which are extremely expensive and energy-inefficient, as they constantly use electricity. By contrast, Float uses an innovative adjustable counter-balance mechanism featuring constant force technology that enables immediate and effortless, single-handed height adjustment. In addition, unlike any other height-adjustable work surface on the market, Float is built with a unique safety feature that only allows up or down adjustment when the desktop and contents are properly balanced.
- With a unique counterbalance mechanism and lighted indicator, Float enables easy, one-hand counterbalance weight adjustment, and near-effortless height adjustment for ergonomic sit-stand usage
- Float very neatly “floats” into position when its release is engaged - for weightless adjustment without force
- Safety measures prevent the possibility of injury associated with incorrect counterbalance
- A form flowing from function, Float’s elegant, architectural lines belie its exceptionally sophisticated functionality while eliminating the need for an extra support beam. Float’s understated simple form along with white, silver or black finish options - discreetly complements any work environment
- Unmatched performance and ease of use encourage desk-bound workers to regularly alternate between sitting and standing postures for long-term health
- Simple, single-handed counterbalance weight adjustment instantly accommodates changes in tabletop weight
- Innovative safety feature allows up or down adjustment only when the desktop and contents are properly counterbalanced
- Provides an impressive 20 inches of near-effortless adjustment (from 27" to 47" high from the floor, excluding tabletop thickness) for ergonomic use
- Lighted indicator offers intuitive adjustment instruction
- Counterbalances up to 130 lbs. of desktop weight (including the tabletop)
- Accommodates tabletop widths from 48" to 72" and depths from 24" to 30", including tabletops from most manufacturers
- Includes a 5-year warranty
- Sturdy construction meets BIFMA requirements for load and capacity
- Built primarily of steel and aluminum. Built for a long, serviceable life and limited carbon footprint, Float is made using minimal parts and manufacturing processes, and is comprised predominantly of recyclable steel
- 45 Day Return Policy
Recent research shows that sedentary work increases the risks of cancer and heart disease, regardless of other health indicators, such as exercise and nutrition. However, standing all day at work isn’t a realistic option for most people, as that can cause discomfort and swelling in the legs and feet. Therefore, the healthiest workplace solution combines the best of both worlds to allow users to alternate between sitting and standing positions throughout the day.

Option 1: Base Color
Option 2: Counterbalance Crank
- M - Mounted
- R - Removable
Counterbalance needs to be adjusted when weight is added or removed from the table. If you, as a user, anticipate the same items to remain on your table and the weight on your table is not going to change often, then a removable counterbalance can work for you. You can use the crank when needed. However, if you need to adjust the counterbalance often then a mounted counterbalance might be a better choice since it is always available for adjustments.
