Single Spring-Loaded Monitor Desk Mount DM551X1 [BLACK]
The DM551X1 is a heavy-duty single desk mount that holds one computer screen.
This model is part of our DM55 range which is made with aluminium and coated with a durable black electrostatic finish. A level up from our DM45 range, these advanced desk mounts offer a higher range of manoeuvrability.
Unlike the DM15, DM25, DM35 and DM45 ranges, the DM55 range features spring-loaded arms that can move vertically on-the-fly; simply hold the screen gently and glide it to the position you need it in, then release. It's that simple!
This model has one arm that has two joints, one can rotate 360° and the other 180°, allowing the screen to be articulated to different positions.
This screen arm is fully height adjustable, has swivel and tilt ability and can rotate the screen from horizontal to vertical. It comes with a standard-sized Duronic clamp that will fit desks between 5mm – 68mm depth, and the arm can convert to be installed onto a desk via a hole using a grommet (available separately).
As well as allowing you to achieve an ergonomic set up for your workspace, this monitor stand will elevate the screens off of the desk surface, which will free up space that you can utilise for other equipment and accessories.
The DM551X1 pole is 30cm high and the arm is 32cm long.
This mount can accommodate one screen sized between 15-27 inches and weighing between 2.8 - 7.8kg.
The VESA bracket will hold monitors with VESA 100 or VESA 75 mounting holes.
Swivel & Tilt Ability
The arm has two joints; one can rotate 360° and the other 180°. This allows you to articulate the arm to different positions to suit your set-up.
The VESA bracket has a tilt ability of -90°/+85° which allows the viewer to make small adjustments to the screen's angle to align with their line of sight.
Weight Capacity & Rotation Ability
Thanks to the fully rotational VESA head bracket, the screen can rotate a full 360°, allowing for both horizontal and vertical use of the screen.
The arm can be re-positioned in any direction on the pole by twisting the locking collar on the pole.
Adjustable Clamp Size
Fitted with a standard Duronic clamp, this allows easy and simple installation onto any desk edge that is between 0.5cm – 6.8cm.
Made of strong robust steel, you can rest assured that your monitor/s will be held securely in place.
Compatible grommet: DM-GR-02
Setting this screen mount up on your desk couldn’t be simpler to do. The clamp slides onto the back of the desk and is tightened with the bolt until it stands securely. Then the arm can be adjusted by using the locking collar on the pole to secure it in the optimal position. Fixing a screen onto the stand is a simple procedure because the heads all accept the VESA 75/100 standard which make them suitable for all PC monitors and the majority of TV screens too. Installation is quick and the only tools you will need is a Phillips screwdriver and an Allen key (provided).
WHY USE A DESK MOUNT?
Ergonomic care has become more of a focus over recent years due to the fast-evolving workforce; with more and more technology being introduced in the workplace, physical activity has declined and it is affecting more people’s health than ever before. A side-effect from this is that employers witness more illness-related absences that could have been avoided if their employees were more active and had a better ergonomic set-up in their working environment. Studies have shown that sitting at a desk with poor posture for long periods of time can affect your health, especially if you already have a pre-existing medical condition.
A major contributor to poor posture is the position of the computer screen. This is because the computer screen is what determines our overall posture; it’s the place our eyes rest upon and where we naturally turn our body towards in an attempt to sit comfortably. If the screen is badly positioned for the user (i.e. too high or low) then they end up craning their head and/or neck to view the screen better, which in turn affects their spine and shoulders. Over time sitting like this can cause pain, discomfort and long-term health problems. It can also put unnecessary strain on the eyes, which can ultimately have a knock-on effect on your well-being, energy and productivity.
Ensuring your monitor/s are at the right level can help to reduce orthopaedic/back pain that can occur from poorly positioned monitor screens, as well as ensuring you can work as productively as possible. Duronic desk mounts are the perfect solution to improve these problems and to create a more organised feel to your set up. In addition to this, elevating your screen off of the desk up onto a stand frees up valuable desktop space. No matter what screen/s you have, what kind of desk you have, we will have a desk mount to suit. Once you have your screen/s elevated to the optimal level you are sure to see and feel a vast improvement. Best of all, our mounts are second to none in quality; made of strong durable materials and designed to meet the user’s needs perfectly, you will not be disappointed. In fact, you’ll wonder why you didn’t have one sooner!
