Are you in the market for a monitor arm? You’ve come to the right place! Since 1986, Innovative has specialized in the design and manufacturing of mounting solutions for monitors, laptops, tablets, and more. Now the question becomes: what monitor arm is right for you?

Your choice of monitor mount is going to depend a lot on your workspace. We have all types of short reach arms for more compact desks and work areas, longer arms for applications that require extensive reach, articulating arms that provide fluid movement as needed, and more. No matter where you work, there is a mounting solution that can be configured to fit your space. But first, there are a few questions you need to ask yourself in order to get the monitor mount for your application.

1. How much does your monitor weigh?

Innovative’s monitor arms are mostly controlled by a gas cylinder within the arm, which allows you seamlessly adjust and move the monitors as needed. In order for the right gas cylinder to be placed in the arm, it’s necessary to know how much your monitor (or monitors if it’s a multi-monitor application) weighs. Figuring this part out is the first step, since it will determine if you need a mount that’s made for heavier monitors (like our 7500 series) or if it falls in the range of lighter monitors, in which case our 7000 series or 7Flex series might be the right option.

2. Do you need a single mount, dual, or multi-monitor solution?

Many of our most popular monitor arms come with mounting options for single or dual monitors, making it easy for you to pick which of these possibilities best fits your needs. All of Innovative’s classic arms mentioned above also come in convenient and easy-to-use dual monitor applications, including the 7000-8408, 7500-Wing, and 7Flex Dual!

When two monitors don’t seem like enough, there are also a range of multiple monitor solutions available. Our Switch series can be configured for up to six monitors, while our new Winston sit/stand workstation is now available in a dual or triple monitor mount (Winston quad is coming soon!). If your multi-monitor needs require more than six monitors, our Bild multi-monitor solution can easily mount more than 16 monitors.
