Has it ever crossed your mind, that there is a huge mechanical difference between the monitor arms, stands and mounts? Understanding the difference between the mounts, stands and arms can help you a lot in deciding what best suits your needs. Tv bracket Singapore offers the best, affordable and quality mounts, trolley stands and monitor mounts. When shopping for a monitor arm, what do you look for?
- Does the monitor have VESA mounting capabilities?
- What is the weight of your monitor?
- How do you want to attach the arm onto the desk?
Let these three simple questions be the guideline, or the guide when using an ergonomic arm set up in your house or workstation.
A monitor arm basically offers a sturdy, and a semi-permanent placement of your monitor. An LCD arm usually comes with an articulating arm or a link which allows the users a wider range of placement. They are easily rotated for collaboration and free up valuable desk space. Tv bracket Singapore offers monitor arms in a dual or single version and therefore, depending on the purpose, you can find supporting multiple monitors or television very easy.
One big difference for the monitor arms is that they have to be place to the work surface, or a wall or slat wall or panel. The adjustment of the monitor arm varies widely by the arm selected. However, the main adjustment you need to make are;
Height adjustment- which can be accomplished in a number of ways depending on the arm itself. Most of the arms use either one of these methods;
- Gas cylinder this a way of height adjustment which allows height adjustment by sliding the pole downwards. Calibrations of the cylinders allow weight monitoring.
- Fingertip control mechanism which is another way of height adjustment. The links can move up and down by simply moving the monitor with your hand.
- Pole mount where the links are attached to the pole by way of a bracket that slides up and down the pole to set the height.
Depth adjustment- depth is the distance between the post and the monitor and can be easily adjusted by pushing the monitor back and pulling it back forward. It is a back and forth movement. The distance you achieve with this kind of movement is largely dictated by the length of the arm that you have purchased.
These come in what we commonly refer as trolley stands and the regular monitor stands. The regular stands offer a sit placement of your television or monitors. While the arms require you to firmly hold or fix the arm on to the wall, the stands are easily portable. To move the mounts or the monitor mounts, you have to first of all remove it from the wall, then move it making television stands a good choice where there will be regular movement. When shopping for the stands, Tv bracket Singapore advises to look at the following;
- Height adjustable
Most of the stands in the market today offer a good positioning and control but with no height adjustment. There are situations where you many need to raise or lower your television or mount.
- Angle adjustment
Most stands offer a complex pivot mechanism which lets you change both the angle and the tilt of your screen for optimal positioning. Ergonomists and DIY experts suggest or recommend tilting the top of the monitor away from your position slightly.
Most stands are modular in that they can easily adapt to your changing needs, for example, if you need to add more screens, all you need to do is to add parts to the original stand.
Monitor or television mount are very different from the monitor arms. The design and installation differ very much. The mounts are posts that have to be mounted on to the wall, slat wall or panel and they offer a direct mounting to the monitor or the television without the need of the arm. They come in three diverse options, there are the full motion television mount, the fixed mounts and the tilting mounts.
The height adjustments of the mounts can be achieved by moving the monitor bracket up or down the pole whilst the depth adjustment in most mounts is not achievable unless using the full motion television mount.
