  • Chief, an industry leader in AV and workspace mounting solutions, will showcase the Accel™ Active Desktop, an innovative sit-to-stand workspace solution, at ErgoExpo booth 208.

    The solution is designed to solve common issues users experience with similar products, with the goal of accelerating movement in the workplace. With a large 46” wide x 20” deep primary desktop surface and secondary 40” wide x 10” deep upper surface, Accel 46 provides ample space for a variety of work tasks and space uses without having to leave anything needed behind. Accel’s footprint is optimized for shallower depth desktops, resting on a 24” deep work surface, and is also optimized for both traditional and corner desk uses.

    “For Chief, it was a natural progression of our workplace technology product category to expand to sit-to-stand solutions,” said David Albright, Business Development Manager. “We heard users want to have the full height-adjustable desk experience provided in an easily retrofit desktop solution.”

    Accel repositions to the user’s preferred standing work height with the touch of a button, electrically actuated for ultimate ergonomics. Accel was engineered to maintain rigidity at any height for a stable experience no matter what task is being performed.

    “When developing Accel, we heard feedback from users that current products on the market can leave them with an almost seasick feeling due to display vibration,” said Albright. “We saw the opportunity to create a better experience with a really stable solution.” 

    The lower surface provides minimal height impact when seated for optimal ergonomics. With three memory pre-sets, Accel allows users to smoothly and easily raise and lower their desktop to preferred settings. Two integrated USB-A ports provide convenience charging for personal devices.

    With two elegant finish options, Accel’s design aesthetic complements commercial office environments and is available in single and dual monitor versions.

  • Chief, an industry leader in AV mounting solutions, has updated the premium Kontour™ Series Monitor Arms to meet the challenges of office space densification. The new KX Series will be on display at ErgoExpo booth 208.

    “The days of 30-inch deep desktops are behind us,” said David Albright, Business Development Manager. “With 24-inch and shallower being the new normal, dealers were asking for a monitor arm solution that could provide a full range of motion while also allowing users to push the displays out of the way when not in use.”

    The new FleXlink design optimizes the depth of dual-, triple- and quad-monitor installs for shallow depth desktops while still providing full range of motion for screen sharing. Available in white, black, and silver finishes to match modern office décor.

    This series includes Chief's patented Centris™ Extreme Tilt technology for effortless fingertip monitor positioning from +75˚ to -10˚, allowing for maximum viewing comfort whether sitting or standing. Kontour monitor arms float your displays in the optimal ergonomic position above your work surface to create a more productive and comfortable work environment.

    The FleXlink arm kit is also available to retrofit existing K1 Series monitor arm installs.

    Other features include:

    • Best-in-class weight capacity range of 5 to 25 lbs. makes specification simple
    • Sleek, solidly-constructed forged aluminum arms
    • Enhanced column interface enables easy upgrades from single- to dual- or triple-monitor installations without impacting the existing installation, future-proofing your investment
    • 20" (508 mm) of total height adjustment range
    • Enhanced 3-step installation and quick-release monitor interface for easy mounting and maintenance, with included tool storage in the updated base
    • Easily clamps to edge of desk, through standard grommet hole, or through bolt hole with included kit
    • Tool-free cable management covers for a clean, professional look
    • With high levels of recycled content & a highly-recyclable design, Chief Kontour monitor arms may contribute to valuable LEED-CI, -NC, and -EB credits!
