Abstract: front page image
(EN)A desk assembly (10) comprises a base (12) adapted to stably engage a floor surface. An upright support member (14) is secured to and extends upwardly from the base. A planar desk (34) is connected in slidable engagement to the support member (14) between a lower (L) and an upper position (U). Biasing means, preferably a gas spring (100), is connected between the base (12) and the desk (34). The biasing means biases the desk upwardly from said lower position (L) toward said upper position (U). Locking means is operable to selectively secure said desk intermediate said lower and upper positions. The provision of an upwardly biased force by biasing means, between the upper and lower positions, improves convenience for the user when adjusting height of the desk.

Les ressorts de rappel facilitent le réglage en hauteur du plan de travail (34) par l'utilisateur.
