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!

I would highly recommend this electric desk to all ages, the the best decision I’ve made for my sons study table. The service was excellent, prompt in responses and on time schedule with the delivery time. The removalists were very careful bringing into our study room on the second level.
Very happy with the purchase!!

Amazing e-desk - sturdy, spacious and great quality wood. It fits well into the home office. Assembling it was mostly straightforward with the video! Thanks Guy

I'm only just reading all the Google Reviews now, just before writing this, after having purchased and built a desk; and this is basically going to be saying the same thing as all the others, the owner, Guy, is absolutely great and so are the desks. There's a reason why all the reviews are genuine 5 stars. I had been doing research on numerous sit/stand desks and the manufactures of the frames/motors that go into them. I wanted a good quality and reliable setup so I decided to something that utilised Linak (manufacturer) hardware and so I set out trying to find a sit/stand desk that used them. As I was after something specific, I contacted a number businesses before placing an order so that I understood exactly what it was I was purchasing. Unfortunately most of those other businesses seemed more interested in B2B, and a couple didn't even bother responding. I had even gone so far as to contact a business in Canada, who eagerly could supply everything, but unfortunately not for running on 240v. I almost gave up and was just about to head to Ikea. Then I came across Ergomotion. I shot through an email with some questions about their Edesk, and I got a clear informative response within hours. The owner, Guy, kindly followed up, answered further questions, and was also able to order extra parts from Linak on request. To ensure I had all the information I needed before placing an order, he even went so far as to warn me of a slight upcoming price increase. Guy knows his products, knows it in great detail and has a wealth of helpful knowledge.

Great customer service and desk is exactly as described. Setting it all up was straight forward too. The electric movement up and down is really smooth and quiet - couldn't be happier!

After a very unpleasant and disappointing customer service experience with another desk from one of the more "well-known" commercial standing desk companies, I came across Ergomotion and Guy after extensive research to find a replacement and I am glad turned out this way. Dealing with Guy was an absolute pleasure, he was able to answer all my questions and provide me with a range of customisation options including a solid rubberwood desk top which I decided on after seeing the desk in person. In the end, I ended up with a higher quality desk and look forward to continue using it for years to come. Thanks Guy!

We’ve had an Ergomotion High /Low Desk since 2015, well before standing at a work station was a “Thing” in Australia. It’s been fabulous! It’s reliable, speedy and quiet in its height adjustments. Guy, the business owner, is approachable for after sales service queries. To achieve more posture positions & comfort, we use a 10cm foot stool while standing! Many thanks Guy for the great service… Cheers Avril & Tony (Heidelberg West, formerly Moorabbin)

Before purchasing from Ergomotion, I wondered how a business can actually have a 5.0 star perfect rating on Google. After purchasing an electric standing desk and dealing with Guy, I know how. 1) HIGH QUALITY: The desks from here all use high quality LINAK motors and frames. The desk top that I received was commercial grade laminate from Laminex. 2) GENUINE SERVICE: When I initially wanted a more expensive variant, Guy explained to me the differences and suggested the more affordable variant. 3) CUSTOMISATION: Guy helped me customise the size of the size of my desktop - something no other business offered. 4) CONVENIENCE: For a nominal fee, Guy delivered the desk, FULLY ASSEMBLED. All I did was plug it in. Can't get this level of convenience with any other of the many businesses that offer standing desks. If I buy another standing desk, it will be from Ergomotion.

Amazing customer service and quality product and exceeded expectations. I would definitely recommend Ergomotion for their exception product offering and service.

Jake Port 12/03/22

Quality at a reasonable price which is made even better by Guy. You’re made to feel special and nothing is too hard which in this day and age, is honestly hard to come by. Do yourself a favour and support a local family business.
