Reach Spring Assisted Monitor Arm – BS EN 9241
Our Reach monitor arm has been tested by FIRA (Furniture Industry Research Association) and conforms with BS EN ISO 9241-5:1999 Ergonomic requirements for office work with visual display terminals (VDTs). Workstation layout and postural requirements.
The purpose of this standard is to promote and enhance performance and comfort while minimising risks to users’ safety and health. Users of visual display terminals (VDTs) in office work typically adopt a range of postures (seated with leaning, upright or reclining torso, standing or a combination of both).
Workplaces which accommodate such usage can encourage movement, promote comfort and reduce physical, mental and visual problems. The test is intended to determine the strength and durability of ‘VDU platforms and support arms’ and includes three test levels;
- General: 10,000 rotations
- Heavy: 20,000 rotations
- Severe: 50,000 rotations
We are pleased to report that Reach successfully completed 50,000 rotations, which is an excellent result.
