Eden Prairie, Minn. USA  - www.chiefmfg.com - Chief, an industry leader in mounts, racks and interactive solutions, has expanded the Kontour series of monitor mounts to include array configurations, and they are now shipping. Flexibility meets form and function with the K3 series of elegantly designed, solid array mounts. The K3 group of mounts includes 3x1/2x1, 2x2 and 1x2 configuration options. Each comes in either free standing or grommet mounting styles. A clamp accessory provides a third choice for installers.

"The new array solutions bring the Kontour series of monitor mounts into a range of new applications," said Liz Aboobaker, Associate Product Manager. "Dealers will enjoy the greater flexibility of the expanded Kontour series to meet their project needs. The modular nature of these mounts means they can be easily modified to meet a wide range of multi-monitor arrangements."

The K3 mounts provide aesthetic, stable solutions – perfect for offices, call centers, security desks, control rooms, health care and IT settings.

The 3x1/2x1 configuration is the first of the arrays on the market and comes with many features for installers, including:

Telescoping lateral shift

Room for three 27" monitors or two 30" monitors

Independent height adjustable arms and center head

Adaptable heads can be detached from telescoping arms and moved all the way toward the column

12 degree Centris tilt in each direction for each arm head

10 degrees up and down tilt for the column mounting head

Flexible array arm angle: from flat up to 15 degrees toward the user

15 lbs (6.8 kg) weight capacity per monitor

Landscape and portrait orientation

Integrated cable management

Some features included on the 3x1/2x1 configuration may not apply to other models. All mounts are first available in black with silver to follow soon. The 3x1/2x1 configuration includes the K3F310B desk stand, available now, and the K3G310B grommet/bolt down stand, which will be available later this month. The 2x2 configurations include the K3F220B desk stand and the K3G220B grommet/bolt down stand. The 1x2 configurations include the K3F120B desk stand and the K3G120B grommet/bolt down stand.
