It only takes a few easy steps to set up a Desksurfer ready for use:

Simply wheel the unit into position & lock the four (4) outboard (of the desk) castors.
Use the winch to adjust the platform to the desired platform height above the desk.
Climb up and onto the platform closing the chains behind you.
Carry out your work safely over the desk.

The Desksurfer answers the needs of facilities engineers & others needing access over desks & provides minimal disturbance to the typical apparatus on desks, such as computers & screens.

The Desksurfer requires no assembly or erection and is ready to operate and use, once the base unit is positioned beneath the desk.

The platform height is adjusted in a matter of seconds using the convenient braked winch device.

The Desksurfer beats all previous methods for over desk access like desk spanning scaffolds and has been measured to provide 800% efficiency over previous methods in a timed trial changing 80 lamps in a dealer hall.

The Desksurfer can also be used away from desks & is therefore extremely useful for all access & working at height requirements for the duties of facilities and maintenance engineers.

If you are in facilities/maintenance/engineering/cleaning etc.; then the Desksurfer answers the access needs, for Working at Height.

Design features

The Desksurfer has been designed for hands on facilities and maintenance engineers, to specifically answer the difficult access requirements when working over desks. A 900mm out reach platform provides an easy 1200mm of hands on access to light fittings, air conditioning extractor filters etc.


Based on an entirely new concept, the Desksurfer is both quick and easy to use. The platform is height adjustable for low level and high level applications, providing access to the underside of ceilings and when needed, above ceiling tile level for roof void situations. The safe working load (SWL) is 150Kg and each Desksurfer has a Serial number, a certificate of conformity and is proof tested to 300Kg (2:1 of its SWL). Note the Desksurfer design load is 450Kg (3:1 of its SWL).


With its space saving design the Desksurfer compacts to a mere 650mm wide x 1350mm long x 1912mm high (1970mm with option 5, adjustable legs), which makes it a versatile access tool to fit through doors and into small lifts as a one piece, self contained mobile unit.


Manufactured from robust aluminium alloy the Desksurfer is not only very strong but light and easy to manoeuvre. You can manually push the base around only when the the platform is empty. With no heavy hydraulics or batteries to add weight. The self weight is between 95Kg to 140Kg depending on the model and options.
