SAA179 Ergonomic Monitor Arm

Our Most Compact Height Adjustable Arm - Nimble, Rugged and Amazingly Strong for its Size

The SAA179 LCD Monitor Arm provides excellent adjustability and effortlessly floats LCD and LED monitors as well hefty touchscreen monitors and even big 27” all-in-PCs and iMacs of all sizes. This very compact monitor arm has an angled forearm that preserves the full range of vertical travel as the user moves the arm through its full range of motion. When folded in on itself, positioned at or against the mounting surface, the SAA179 collapses to about 3.75" of depth. When mounted to a horizontal surface that stops the downward travel of the lifting arm, the SAA179 achieves 8" of vertical range (please see spec images below). When mounted to a pole or vertical surface where there are no obstructions, the downward movement of the lifting arm achieves its full range of vertical travel of nearly 10".   Using the 2” or 6” vertical extension option will allow the arm to achieve its full vertical transit of over 9.5”.  The triple articulating arm rotates 360° in the mount, elbow and tilter head. The tilter head mechanism tilts more than 200°. Maneuver a monitor with fingertip ease and achieve maximum mobility in a minimum of space.
Selecting the Flexible Mount Kit A supplies a highly configurable mounting kit that can be assembled as a clamp to desk edge mount, thru desk mount, wall mount, or box edge mount. Other more application specific mounts are available and provide alternative heavy duty, use appropriate and aesthetic solutions. The SAA179 easily handles monitors up to 30" (screen size measured diagonally). The LCD mounting arm is available in two standard weight ranges.  Contact Ergomart for assistance if your monitor weighs less than 9 pounds. Weigh your monitor without the stand to determine which arm weight range (gas spring cylinder) and which tilter head best fits specific monitor.

Spring tilter head option
Spring Tilter Head
Heavy-duty spring tilter head option
HD Spring Tilter Head

There are considerable overlaps in weight ranges between tilter head styles. Determining the appropriate tilter can be a little tricky; consider the following: monitor thickness (touch-screens especially tend to be front heavy and thicker), frequency of tilt adjustment desired and/or the added use of a thin client holder or bracket between the monitor and tilter.

Thicker monitors and touch screens weighted more toward the front create a greater lever force on the tilter head. If you plan to adjust the tilt frequently, opt for the stronger tilter head as it is will be easier to back and forth with the spring assist. If you plan to put the monitor at a fixed tilted position and rarely change it, then a the standard tilter head will usually suffice. For questions or help deciding which titer head is best suited for your application, call 888 420 3200

Arm specification image side view wall mounted showing horizontal reach and vertical travel SAA179 Side view of the SAA179 when wall-mounted. With no obstructions, the arm offers 10" of vertical travel and has a horizontal reach of up to 18".
LCD arm specification drawing side view wall mounted demonstrating various folded positions SAA179 Side view of the SAA179 when wall-mounted. In this illustration, the arm is folded so that the monitor is perpendicular to the wall. The distance from the center point of the monitor to the wall depends on the vertical position of the arm. This determines the maximum size of the monitor or tablet that can be viewed at a 90 degree angle from the wall in this folded position.
Monitor arm specification drawing top view desk mounted showing folded and extended positions SAA179 Top view of SAA179 when desk mounted. When fully extended, the arm reaches out as far as 18". When retracted in the horizontal position, the arm can be folded into as little as 3.5".
Monitor arm spec image side view desk mountedwith optional vertical extension in lowest positions SAA179 Side-view of the SAA179 when desk-mounted. The surface of the desk will inhibit the arm from traveling to its lowest possible position. As a result, the total instant vertical adjustability will be limited to 9.25" (8" with Mount Kit A) compared to 10" with the wall mount option. To reclaim the range of motion, optional vertical extensions can be added. Please note, Mount Kit A is not compatible with the 5, 8 and 12 inch extensions.

The figure shows the impact of adding vertical extensions on the maximum height the arm can reach. The 12" extension (with Mount Kit C) allows the maximum height to reach 30.75".
The impact of the vertical extensions on vertical adjustability in a desk mounted set up are summarized in the tables below.
