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!

Pop-up Tv Cabinet

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!

Great service and really quick shipping. It is great to know that you are getting quality parts from a Scandinavian manufacturer with your standing desk purchase rather than the cheap knock off stuff you get from other major brands. Reasonably priced for the quality too!

Guy was very accommodating with meeting him at a time that suited me. He assembled the desk prior to me collecting so I only had to carry it inside with help (it's pretty heavy). The desk is great, the storage racks underneath with the 6 x built in powerpoints was worth the extra money. I have a functioning & tidy workplace.
Guy was brilliant, I highly recommend.

Have now purchased 2 stand up office desks off Guy, benchmark sales service from him, all via email, so easy; from quote to plug in, only matched by the strong quality of these machines, solid and stable. If only everything in life was this easy and reliable.

I purchased an EDesk this month from Ergomotion, and it was a remarkably smooth transaction. Guy was eager to answer all my questions before my purchase. As a first-time buyer of a standing desk, I truly appreciated how he addressed my queries with thorough details and provided options within my budget.

The delivery process was also smooth, despite a slight delay in the ETA. Guy ensured I received all necessary updates from the courier/removalist.

I've been using the desk for a couple of weeks now and I'm satisfied with it. It's sturdy on all height adjustments and the motor works as expected. I also like oak finish because it's clean-looking and suits my room setup.

Overall, I'm happy with my purchase and I'll definitely recommend Ergomotion to someone looking for their desk needs.

I've had an ergomotion desk for 10 years. It's still as good today as it was brand new. Over the years Guy has always responded promptly to any guidance I've needed (mostly help putting the desk back together after removalists take it apart).

Great service from Guy and the team at Ergomotion! Helped with all my queries and was able to source a standing desk part for me when many others weren't able! Highly recommend!

Skip the big name brands and buy from Guy instead, 10/10 linak parts with a very well built tabletop.

I purchased the edesk from Guy at Ergomotion. Guy was a pleasure to deal with and the desk arrived the next day. Guy was highly knowledgeable on the desk and provided very prompt support on the installation. I can highly recommend Ergomotion.
