Durability Test on Flexispot Electric Standing Desk

January 23, 2019

Why durability test is needed?

A durability test is a test simulating the repeated application of loads or movement of components occurring during long-term use. It evaluates how well a product holds up when put to the test beyond its expected or designated function.

Standing desks need to be suitable for use and durable, they should be strong enough to withstand a reasonable weight and joints should remain tight with use over time. To the average consumer, the desire for longer lasting probably seems beyond debate. Durability test is becoming increasingly important as manufacturers strive to increase the reliability of their products.

The last thing you want is a desk that won’t last.

What is the test process?

The chosen sample for testing is Flexispot E1 standing desk frame with 55 “X 30” desktop. The total load of the desk is 190.52 lbs, and the adjustment range for testing is from 28.5” to 47.4”. Before starting the test, a cycle counter is necessary to be installed with the desk, as it will record up and down movements every time. The test process is to run 2 full cycles of up and down adjustment within about 2 minutes, and then rest 18 minutes before repeating the movement before. This experiment began from Aug. 9th, 2018, and till Dec. 29th, 2018, which is 141 days later, the test still continues as the desk keeps working. Experimenters suspended the test shortly to make a note. The cycle counter display shows 40832, indicating that 40832 times vertical movements already occurred in the past 141 days. While pressing the buttons manually, this Flexispot E1 standing desk is still able to go up and down smoothly and stably.
