How Ergomotion’s TV lifts reduce tipping, theft and more!

TV lifts and pop-up TV cabinets are a great way to bring your living room or conference area into the 21st century.

Just imagine how impressed your guests will be when you summon a TV screen out of a seemingly innocuous cabinet!

However, TV lifts and pop-up TV cabinets aren’t just decorative – they can also serve to protect your TV from tipping, theft and more.

This is a subject we’ve mentioned a couple of times. Today however, our ergonomics experts will be going into depth about what exactly that means!

Explore Ergomotion’s TV lifts here, and if you’re interested in one for your home, put us in touch with your builder or cabinet maker! We’d love to help turn your dream into a reality.

TV lifts are more than just a way to reduce clutter!

TV lifts and pop-up TV cabinets use motors, servos and hydraulics to extend and retract your TV. With the press of a button, your TV will either rise out of a desk or cabinet, or retract.

If you’re looking for a way to reduce clutter or make your living space or office just a little bit tidier, a TV lift might be just what you need.

However, that’s not all these ingenious inventions can do – did you know that our TV lifts can also protect your TV – in more ways than one!

TV lifts as security devices

How a pop-up TV cabinet prevents theft

At Ergomotion, our TV lifts are designed to fit seamlessly into your cabinet, and remain as disguised as possible – until you hit the magic button, of course!

That’s what makes TV lifts such a great interior decorating choice.

On top of that, however, they can also double as a great security device!

Think about it: if your guests can’t tell your cabinet has a TV stashed away in it, what luck does a would-be thief, who’s nervous, under pressure and constantly watching their back?

How TV lifts double as TV lock boxes

In addition to hiding your TV, a pop-up TV cabinet also doubles as a lock box for your TV.

Even if a thief is to notice that your pop-up TV cabinet contains a screen inside (unlikely, given how seamless the designs are), they’ll still have to pry their way in.

And thanks to our powerful motors and hydraulics (sourced from Denmark), as well as solid workmanship and construction from your carpenter or cabinet maker, that’s extremely difficult to do by hand!

How a pop-up TV cabinet can prevent tipping

Our TV cabinets don’t just hold your screen – we use specially-designed mountings to ensure that your TV extends and retracts seamlessly without wobbling, getting caught on anything or falling over.

An extra feature of this system however is that it also stops your TV from tipping over!

Those of us with pets or kids knows that boisterous animals or curious hands tend to make things fall over.

And what if your office area sees a lot of people coming and going with trolleys, boxes and deliveries, there’s a very good chance somebody will accidentally bump into your TV screen, knocking it over.

None of these outcomes are ideal – luckily, the way in which  TV is mounted in a TV lift ensures that this isn’t a problem.

More than just physical damage…

Modern televisions are much more advanced than the TV sets of old. On top of tuning in to the latest episode of The Bachelor, modern TVs can browse the web, play music and more.

Unfortunately, they’re also more fragile than their predecessors.

A great example of this is screens. The crystals that make up LCD screens in particular are especially vulnerable to long-term exposure to UV rays, while the delicate internals of LED TVs can suffer from heat-related damage.

Needless to say, direct sunlight doesn’t exactly help either!

In order to prolong the life of your TV, we encourage taking efforts to control heat and to protect it from direct sunlight.

That can take the form of curtains or moving your TV… or it could mean getting a pop-up TV cabinet for your home or office!

This is especially important if your TV is in an outdoor area. Many businesses install screens in waiting areas and the like, while some homeowners put TVs in their outdoor entertainment areas.

By sheltering your screen when it isn’t in use, we can protect your TV from the elements, including harsh sunlight!

Guy was extremely helpful and made sure I got the right desk to suit me, not just recommending the most expensive one. The desk I got was at a solid price, and was exactly what I was after. Highly recommend Ergomotion.

I purchased an electric sit-stand desk from ErgoMotion over a month ago, and hands down can say this has been the best purchase I've made for my home office and I regret not getting one sooner. Build quality and usability is fantastic, was easy to assemble, all the cable mess is hidden in the tray. Also, important to note that Guy and the team has been fantastic to deal with.

Can’t recommend Ergomotion enough. Guy was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Answered all my questions promptly. I bought the Edesk with the rubberwood top and it’s amazing. Highest quality and a solid build. You can’t beat Linak tech for standing desks. Also delivery was super simple and quick.

Absolutely love my desk. I had been looking for MONTHS for a standing desk. Indecision was killing me, and my back, as I needed one desperately to change up my day when working from home. I was worried about the size, quality and durability, as well as warranty. All sites I found were either the wrong sizes for me, lack of warranty information, and not enough good (or not enough) reviews to be spending quite a bit of money on. I have trust issues. Thankfully I found Ergomotion - who has so many great reviews for many reasons. The owner, Guy, is very responsive and helpful. Replied to one of my questions instantly regarding colour options for the desk. I was also very happy to know that the desk is picked up/delivered assembled. Guy was very patient with my delay in picking up my desk, and was super helpful to change my order to be delivered, with a quick turn around, to accommodate me. The delivery drivers were great too! It was an easy and great experience and I'm glad I spent the money I did for a great product and supporting a local and small business.

One of the best services I’ve ever had! Contacted Guy and he walked me through all the options and features of their desks, and just in a few days he delivered the assembled desk to my house by himself. Very professional and efficient! Thanks heaps Guy! Tim

Bought a couple of Ergomotion's edesk standing desks (LINAK DF2) and they have been great; Very sturdy and moves up/down quietly. Guy was excellent to deal with as he is extremely knowledgeable about the product, very customer focussed, and provides great after sales support.
