Chief's Kontour mounts are designed with a forged aluminum body, holding monitors weighing up to 40 lbs (18.14 kg). Variable mounting options allow installers to choose between desk and wall mounts with varying extension up to 24" (61 cm). Advanced models also include Extreme CentrisTM with -10° to +75° of fingertip tilt for sit-to-stand or touch screen workstation applications. A hassle-free cable management system conceals cables beneath hinged channel covers in the K1 Series. Easy access loops keep cables tidy in the K2 Series.
The new Raxxess Series was created to make the installation process as easy and efficient as possible. Features include extra space gained in the bottom of each rack for mounting small components and consistent ventilation options
New additions to the product line include the G1 Series Gangable Rack and the W1 and W2 Series On-Wall Racks. The G1 Series Gangable Rack includes pre-welded ganging nuts and easily accessible hardware. Other features include adjustable front and rear rack rails; optional doors that are reversible, locking and fitting either the front or rear of the rack; cable management slots integrated into the horizontal rack rail; and packaging designed to cushion the back of the rack for lay-down loading.
