How to choose monitor arms & stands?
There are a few factors to consider when choosing a monitor arm and/or stand.
-When looking for monitor arms, consider the size and weight of the item you are attaching. The heavier the item, the more heavy duty a grip you will require.
-For attaching screens, TV’s and so on to a wall, opt for a fixed arm. These can be screwed into a wall, for extra security.
-Some arms are adjustable, allowing you to change the position of it and the item it will hold.
-Choose an aesthetic that suits you- the material it is made from, such as plastic or metal; the colour, whether it’s monochrome, or something brighter.
-Consider how far from the monitor you would require your items to be. The length of the arm should reflect this.
-If you’re looking for a monitor stand, decide on the aesthetic you are after. Whether it’s something more functional and work based, or for the home, choose one that you will enjoy looking at.
-Some stands come with built in shelves or compartments; a bonus way of organising your workspace.
