Let Us Help With Your Green Initiatives

Reduce Future Purchases

Our mounts are built to last. Extremely durable, they undergo performance tests establishing the benchmark and exceeding the industry’s most rigid testing expectations—unlike competitive offerings, you can expect a product like the LX Arm to perform with the same ease and dependability in its 10,000th motion adjustment as in its first. Moreover, our products’ adaptability means that they will continue to be useful when new personnel use a workstation, your computer hardware is upgraded, or you reconfigure a work space.

Build Sustainably

The key to creating efficient work areas is maximized space utilization while improving user interaction with equipment. In terms of Sustainable Building, our products are compliant with certification criteria. Our highly adaptable and space-saving products can help gain LEED-CI, -NC and -EB credits as defined by the U.S. Green Building Council, or earn Green Star points as defined by the Green Building Council Australia through the implementation of a comprehensive ergonomics program.
