Practicality in a Workspace

If you are sitting with a partition in the middle of 2 workstations with 3-4 other colleagues in a bay, then what you have in the office is the linear workstation. A linear workstation is a type of workstation where all the partitions, desks, and chairs are in a straight line. Workers from each bay have their backs facing each other while their workstation is surrounded by 3 partitions. It is a practical way to organize the office. On the other hand, there is a misconception about the linear workstation. Some think that when workers move in a linear workstation, there is less privacy and some feel like they are not trusted by their administration. The truth is a linear workstation has a lot of benefits to workers like you. 

First, a linear workstation is more practical and could save a larger space in the office especially if it's a 30 to 20 sq meter office, a linear workstation is recommendable because in a certain bay there could be 4-6 workspaces that could be set up. 

So, if your company has more than 20 employees, then this kind of workstation is suitable. When you have a linear workstation, workers are given enough time to focus on their work because there is a partition covering the workspace of the worker. Hence, he would not get distracted while working. 

There is a term called the linear wall of discipline. This is not to isolate the workers from each other but this allows them to focus their attention on their task while maintaining formal but friendly communication that could build harmony and dynamics in the team. 

Lastly, this kind of workstation has ergonomic benefits which are attainable if these would be paired up with the best standing desk and ergo chairs like the ones purchased from Flexispot-the home of the superb sit-stand desks, ergonomic chairs, and office organizers. 

In this light, how could you make your linear workstations ergonomically protected with the Flexispot stand-up desks and ergonomic chairs? In the next part of the discussion, we'll get through the cutting edge products (ergonomic chairs, in particular) from Flexispot that could help you optimize the posture and ergonomics of the workers with the ergo chairs from Flexispot. 

Finding Ergonomics in Linear Workstations 

Making the workspace at the linear workstations is a bit challenging especially with the small spaces within cubicles although when it comes to the number of workstations, this kind of office set-up is beneficial because even in a 20sq meter office, you may maximize the number of work stations. On the other hand, the downside is, the worker might have a smaller space to stretch their bodies and large pieces of equipment might not be suitable for each workstation. 

On the other hand, if you worry that an ergonomic chair and standing desk would not be suitable for a linear workstation, you must not do so because, at Flexispot, there are selections of ergonomic chairs and standing chairs that could fit even a small-spaced workstation. You may choose an accent chair or a fitness chair that could match a standing desk from Flexispot. 

For the linear workstations, sit-stand desks like the Kana bamboo standing desk and Willow Solid Wood Standing Desk could be very suitable because they have slender but sturdy desktops, and they both have a dual motor lifting system. So, this means that even if their width is not as wide as the other standing desks', you could ensure that putting this around the linear workstations could be effective. Even with a slender partition, these desks could work effectively. 

In terms of speed, both standing desks could be suitable for linear workstations because they could be lifted in just less than 2 seconds. The dual-motor lifting system helps these standing desks work with speed even in a narrow space without hitting other surfaces or sides of the partitions (just make sure to allot an allowance or a distance between the partition and the standing desk. 

Having these standing desks from the linear workstations could be very effective because they are sleek but efficient. They have a motorized lifting system that provides speed and stability. 

The wooden desktops could provide durability as well. They are made of materials (solid wood for the Willow Solid Wood Standing Desk; a bamboo desk for the Kana Bamboo Standing Desk) that are insect-proof and water-proof, unlike ordinary office desks. With the ordinary tables, you might not ensure the absolute safety of the worker who does tasks on the surface. Some desks could not be sturdy enough as well. Further, some even easily get broken but with the Willow Solid Wood Standing Desk and Kana Bamboo Standing Desk, you may ensure that your employees could finish their task and would be safe from injury. 

These standing desks are best paired with the most amazing ergonomic chairs too. There are 5 ideal ergonomic chairs that you could use and could help you optimize your work performance, 

These chairs are ergonomically designed with precise measurements. This means that the sides of these ergo chairs and accent chairs are measured equally. They may fit properly at the station no matter how limited the space it is.   

Some of these ergonomic chairs are accent chairs. Most of these chairs are made with an impressive gas lifting system that can help you move the chair up and down with a single movement on the adjustor. 

These chairs have undergone thousands of fatigue tests. These could ensure that when you sit on the seating area of these chairs, you would not get tired and the cushion would not get deformed unlike with the ordinary chairs. 

Lastly, some of these ergonomic chairs have dual-purpose that could optimize the movements of the workers. There is the ergo chair from Flexispot that could be used as a fitness chair. That chair is the Sit2Go 2-in-1 Fitness Chair. This is a height-adjustable ergo chair that could be paired with a standing desk. You must not worry about the sedentary lifestyle actually because with this at the workstation, you may cycle steadily and slowly while you finish some office tasks. This could ensure an active lifestyle for you no matter how tied up you get at work.
