Entrawood: The Maluti Height Adjustable Desk Range
Move, sit, stand, work. The Maluti desks available from Entrawood adapt to each user’s needs as they adjust from a sitting or standing position throughout the day, supporting good blood circulation and reducing neck and back strain.
The health of any organization is dependent on the wellbeing of its employees. Internationally we have seen a growing awareness of “wellbeing” at work and companies creating work environments to better support the health of their employees.
Are you moving enough?
As an office furniture manufacturer, Entrawood has a responsibility to the South African workforce to address the ergonomics of the typical office worker. The truth is people are not moving enough throughout their workday. The average office worker is sitting 50-70% of the time. This seated workstyle poses long-term physical challenges, from back and neck pain to repetitive stress injuries. Entrawood wanted to offer SA companies, that place a high value on ergonomics and the health of their workforce, a quality, local height-adjustable desk range that supports the movement.
A small study (The BMJ, Effectiveness of the Stand More AT (SMArT) Work intervention: cluster randomised controlled trial, published 10 Oct 2018) of 146 people who worked in office roles at the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust in the U.K. reports on some of the health benefits that can be expected when implementing height adjustable desks in a work environment. Office workers who used desks that could be adjusted for sitting or standing reported better health and improved work performance at the end of a year-long trial, compared to employees who sat at their desks as usual. During the study participants reported significant reductions in the amount of time they spent sitting. Those reductions may translate to real health benefits, the researchers write, since a recent research review linked sitting more than eight hours per day to a heightened risk of early death and cardiovascular disease.
Quality and Flexibility
Entrawood uses quality materials and electronic and drive components from Germany and Austria. Their European partners ensure that they stay up to date with international trends. The Maluti range brings state-of-the-art performance and flexibility to the modern workplace. Desks are assembled in an assembly facility designed specifically for these products.
Each leg undergoes friction testing, and is quality approved before being assembled. Final product is also checked and levelled before being packed. The desks have excellent stability and an extra customizable pinch protection safety feature.
The desks come with a 3-year warranty, and Entrawood stocks all parts and electronics locally, in case something should go wrong.
