Designed to suit a range of settings, the M2 allows the user to bring their work to them, versus having to adjust to a static monitor stand. M2’s articulating arm options offer effortless height and depth adjustment, and support a wide range of flat-panel screens that weigh 3.6 – 9 kg (8 - 20 lbs.).
Instead of using a gas cylinder to counterbalance the weight of the monitor, the M2 monitor arm uses extension-spring technology. Without clunky mechanisms to complicate the design, the M2 offers uncompromising long-term durability and an ultra-thin design that complements flat-panel monitors and attachments for a truly flexible workstation.
