The MVAL1730 is a sturdy monitor visor constructed with ABS plastic and is made to last even in demanding environments. It is made with a foam gasket to prevent back-light from coming through between the visor shroud and the top of the monitor cabinet. Those who suffer from symptoms of Computer Vision Syndrome (CVS) may find relief when utilizing Ergomart's monitor visor. Many glare screens come up short when compared to the MVAL1730's extra-deep bezel and light-absorbing dark matte finish. This monitor visor is ideal for users such as data entry workers, CAD/CAM professionals, developers and web designers who spend long hours at the computer and maintain intense visual focus on the screen. The overall design helps with compliance with HIPAA patient privacy requirements.  

The MVAL1730 fits monitors from 16.5" to 30" in width. This visor comes with strong Velcro strips which secure the edges of the monitor. It works very well with many LCD monitors and is suitable for mounting to monitors that have flat edges.

Drawing showing cardboard placed over the top of a monitor to test depth at which glare is removed

A Monitor Hood or Monitor Visor must be deep enough to shade the offending glare. This simple test illustrates how to check depth for monitor hoods and monitor visors before purchase. This test requires a large piece of cardboard (about 18" x 30"). Fold it around your monitor. Using easily removable tape, experiment with different shroud depths to see what is the shortest depth that effectively removes the glare spots. Large areas of light colored walls or large windows directly behind the monitor create diffuse reflections or "veiling" glare problems that are not well addressed by visors / hoods.

Monitor visors are typically described in terms of the overall front to back dimension of the unit, depicted by the blue arrow. Most visors lose one to two inches of depth when attached to the monitor. If you only require a minimal shroud depth, most any inexpensive visor will work. If you require a product that combats serious glare problems, please email or call us: 888 420 3200.

  • Can these monitor visors be made in custom sizes?

    It is possible but minimum quantity runs are required. Contact Ergomart for details.

  • Can I use this outdoors?

    You can, however, the Velcro adhesive my loose its "stickiness" under direct sunlight.

  • How do these attach?

    They attach with Velcro strips.

  • Do you offer any smaller sizes?

    Custom sizes of monitor visors can be done in quantities of 25 and larger. Please contact customer service for a custom quote.

  • Can this be taken on and off easily?

    It is reasonably easy to remove the visor by peeling the sides of the visor from the bottom edge and then upward. Of course if it were too easy then the visor would not stay on the monitor. The product is most appropriate as a semi permanent solution and if frequent removal and reattachment are required consider an alternative.

  • Will these work on flat screen monitors?

    Your monitor does need to have a flat side edge to attach with the Velcro strips.

  • Do you offer any larger sizes?

    Custom sizes of monitor visors can be done in quantities of 25 and larger. Please contact customer service for a custom quote.
