GRAND RAPIDS, Michigan, September 2015—Knape & Vogt announces the Tenor™ Trackless Keyboard Arm, a revolutionary new keyboard arm engineered to fit where conventional track-mounted keyboard arms cannot.

The new trackless arm offers mounting capability on shallow work surfaces or spaces where support structures or cable troughs prevent installation of traditional keyboard systems. It fully stores/retracts using just over nine inches of mounting space under the work surface.

“The Tenor arm’s patent-pending trackless design offers full ergonomic keyboard support for workspaces such as height adjustable tables or benching systems where under-desk space is at a premium,” said Scott Sheppard, senior director of marketing at Knape & Vogt. “It offers a real advantage over designs that require a much larger minimum mounting space.”

The Tenor Trackless Keyboard Arm conforms to ANSI/HFES 100-2007 Ergonomic Standards and BIFMA G1-2013 Ergonomic Guidelines for 5th percentile female seated heights while conforming to user knee clearance requirements. It provides exceptional stability and exceeds ANSI/BIFMA Testing Standards. In addition the Tenor arm offers separate height and tilt gauges not usually found on conventional track-mounted keyboard arms: Users will benefit from nearly 6 inches of total height adjustment range via Knape & Vogt’s patented Lift-n-Lock™ technology, while the patented Dial-a-Tilt mechanism offers 30 degrees of tilt adjustability.
