“Elevation Station” Offers Variable Height, Reversible Top

The new Elevation Station adjustable-height workstation from Southworth Products Corp allows the user to raise or lower the tabletop, reducing fatigue and back strain. A convenient foot pedal at each end of the base initiates a smooth, precise transition to any platform height from 24” to 40”, and a reversible platform insert accommodates different tasks.

Ideal for electronics assembly, inspection, packing, shipping, and a multitude of other light-manufacturing operations, the versatile, 200-pound-capacity unit is an economical alternative to more expensive variable-height workbenches or stations. Whether sitting or standing, the user can raise or lower the platform to his/her preferred level to maintain a posture that is ergonomically correct for the work at hand. Adjustment is so simple that different users can easily raise and lower the platform for shift changes. No tools are needed to flip the 23½” x 40” platform insert, which is smooth plastic laminate on one side and a textured, non-slip surface on the other. The steel platform frame (25½” x 49½”) accommodates inserts made of other materials for special applications.

The rugged steel construction and straightforward design of the Elevation Station ensure long life and trouble-free operation. Because the tabletop is raised and lowered by a 24-volt, internal linear actuator, there is no drift, and the risk of hydraulic leaks is eliminated.

The Elevation Station comes pre-wired and ready to operate — no assembly required. It plugs into any standard 115-volt wall outlet. Coated with a durable, scratch-resistant, hammertone finish, the unit is covered by a 2-year warranty on parts and labor, the strongest warranty in the industry.
