The up and down motions of the desk can damage the paint coating of the column. ACTIVE desks have a plastic element that protects the desk leg against potential scratching.
A work desk is often surrounded by other objects. While an adjustable height desk is in motion, it could accidentally collide with a cabinet if you lower it all the way down. However, this can be avoided. Both the 2- level and 3-level feet sensor will automatically stop the desk’s movement if it senses an obstacle in its path. The anti-collision feature reduces the likelihood of damage should the desk collide with a hard object.
