Cable Management

One of the biggest issues people have with standing desks is finding a way to easily organize all their cables and wires. There are a lot of different cable management solutions our there, but the RightAngle™ Wire Management Box is the most effective.

Think of a Wire Management Box as your cable junk drawer. You can throw in all your wires, power strips, surge protectors, and then hide it all by closing the door. Then, when it comes time to add or replace a cable, you won't need to spend the time neatly securing cable ties or trying to undo other fasteners.

Keyboard Tray

keyboard-tray

 

An ergonomic keyboard tray is a great way to make working at your desk less strenuous for your hands, wrists, and arms. But, it's difficult to find one that actually fits on a standing desk.

A standard keyboard tray includes a track that allows users to slide the keyboard in and out. That track is mounted to the underside of the worksurface and generally requires about 18" mounting clearance. Unfortunately, the Steelcase Ology doesn't provide that much mounting clearance due to their T-shaped base design. Depending on the worksurface size, the mounting clearance on the Ology standing desk will be roughly 10.25" to 14" (on either side of the support bracket).

So, what kind of keyboard tray can you use?

The only real solution is to use a keyboard tray that uses a trackless arm mechanism. Our 245E Keyboard Tray with Trackless FastAction Arm will successfully mount to your Steelcase Ology standing desk. It provides height adjustment, keyboard tilt adjustment, and 360˚ swivel.

With such limited mounting clearance, you may notice the keyboard tray hangs out from your desk top by about 1".

245E Keyboard Tray with Trackless FastAction Arm Features:

  • Mounts directly to underside of worksurface - no track
  • Separate height and tilt gauges
  • Total height adjustment of 5.73” (-1.25” to -6.98”under the desk surface)
  • Soft touch knob dial tilt with +10° to -15° tilt angles
  • 360° of swivel
  • Mounting depth (undersurface space for no overhang): 11.5" 
245E Keyboard Tray dimensions: 11"D x 24.5"W
