  • World Day for Safety and Health at Work 2017

    Today celebrates the World Day for Safety and Health at Work. On the 28th of April every year the International Labour Organization (a United Nations Agency) raise awareness for workplace issues by promoting  a safety and health culture worldwide in the hopes of reducing the number of work related injuries and deaths.

    Since the turn of the century computer based work roles have continued to rise and now it is not uncommon for employees to be sitting (or standing) at a computer screen for a majority of their day. That is why it is more important than ever that those workers have the ability to adjust workstations to meet their individual ergonomic requirements.

    The ILO have created an extensive checklist to help employers make sure they are meeting all necessary health and safety requirements. Checkpoint 60 explains the relevance of the adjustable computer workstations as well as correct posture. Some useful hints on optimising your workstations include:

    “Train users on correct sitting posture at the workstation. Educate users on the use of various controls on the adjustable setting.”

    “If a standing CPU is used, position it on the side of the table. Other items that are not required should be stored away (e.g. archive manuals, documents) to increase legroom.”

    “Schedule rest periods to enable stretching and visual exercises such as looking back and forth on far and close objects.”

    At ErgoMounts we offer a wide range of adjustable monitor and keyboard arms for use in medical, manufacturing, office and home environments. Most of these solutions can be adjusted to meet the ergonomic requirements of 95% of adults. Contact us today to discuss how our products could not only improve worker health but also increase productivity.

    We hope you have a good World Day for Safety and Health at Work and if you would like to learn more visit the International Labour Organization Website for more information.

  • Product Update: Ultra Series Laptop Tray

    One of our leading ranges of ICWUSA medical grade mounting solutions will be having a major re-design from May 2017. The Ultra Series of Medical Laptop Mounts will be moving the support from underneath the tray to a newly designed Quick Connect fitting at the rear. This benefits the users in several ways:

    The front of the tray can now be tilted downwards for easier access to the laptop or notebook keypad.

    A handle has been added to the front of the tray to allow for easier adjustment.

    The Quick Connect can be locked into position for added stability.

    The following products have been affected:

    Ultra Series Laptop Desk Mount

    Ultra Series Laptop Wall Mount

    Ultra Series Laptop Pole Mount

    Ultra Series Laptop Wall Track Mount

    As with all re-designs this can cause some issues for customers that regularly order products from within this range. If you have any questions or concerns about how this change might impact future orders please contact your sales representative or call us on 01252 333326.

    All of our ICWUSA Mounting Arms are manufactured to order by our partners in Medford Oregon and then hand assembled by our team of highly skilled technicians at our headquarters in the UK. These medical grade solutions are produced from Billet Aluminium before being powder coated for a durable finish that can be cleaned with hospital grade solutions (10,000 parts bleach per 1,000,000).

  • New Website Launch

    This morning all of the team at ErgoMounts are very excited to announce the launch of our brand new website.  After over 8 months of development and the feedback from 1000’s of our customers we are so happy to finally be able to share some of the exciting updates and changes with you.

    The new site has been built from the ground up to not only modernise the appearance of us as a brand but also streamline the process for our customers looking for the right product. We have struggled for years with customers having to try and fumble their way through 100’s of options and configurations in the hopes of finding the right ErgoMounts product for them. Our new system uses a picture based configurator to narrow down product options and show users their creations in real time.

    Head of Marketing, Shane Dunn has said:

    “For almost 15 years we have been one of the UK’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of AV mounting solutions but that has never really reflected in our previous marketing effort. In this day and age where a website is a customer’s first point of call for any prospective business it was so important to us that this was the first on the list of the many exciting changes we are going to seeing come to ErgoMounts in the coming years.”

    Another significant change has been our newly created “Resource Centre”. Here customers can find a wide range of useful information such as News, Instruction Booklets, Brochures and an expanded Case Studies Area.

    We hope you like the changes and if you have any feedback we’d love to hear from you. Why not let us know on Facebook, Twitter or Linkedin.
