How do I choose a monitor arm?
When choosing a monitor arm, there are three primary considerations:
How many monitors per workstation?
What type of mount do you need - desk clamp, drill screw? A clamp is standard for most desks, but larger work surfaces may require a drill screw or grommet mount to position the monitor arm in the ideal spot.
What type of workstation is it - single or shared, desk or wall-mounted?

How do I choose a surface mounting option?
Choosing a mounting option depends on whether you are looking for a temporary/adjustable solution or a more permanent mount. Clamps and SlatWall mounts can be easily moved. Drill Screw, Grommet, and Wall Mount options are for permanent placement.
Which monitor arms can accommodate large monitors?
Novus TSS monitor arms and mounts provide unlimited options for custom configurations and can support larger monitors ranging from 22lbs to 44lbs.
Is there a solution for supporting a laptop and a monitor?
Yes, our Novus Business Combination Set offers the option to easily mount a monitor and support a laptop at the same time.

What are your options for control rooms?
Novus TSS have been used in control rooms worldwide because of their strength and how easy they are to customize any monitor bank design.
Which monitor arms will best suit cubicles or desks with partitions?
The Novus TSS Telescope monitor arms are designed with a flat profile, sliding to adjust rather than bending with joints. This provides a flat profile ideal for placing against a wall or for back-to-back workstations. The highly flexible Novus CLU monitor arms are also a great space-saving option with specially designed arms that also offer a flatter profile.
Which monitor arms are best for shared workstations?
We offer several options that are perfect for this application:
The easy movement of Novus LiftTEC® and Novus CLU monitor arms are great for collaborative workspaces and sharing screen information.
MY twin fix and MY twin arm offer the ability to set up back-to-back shared monitors on one workstation.
Most of our monitor arms can also be rail-mounted for bench-style workstations. Give us a call 800-995-1379 for more information.
