Humanscale Introduces Platinum 5G Keyboard System

All-Silver Solution Provides Maximum Comfort, Value and Style

New York, January 30, 2008 — The Platinum 5G Keyboard System, the first all-silver keyboard solution in the office furniture market, is now available. Humanscale bundles its top-of-the-line keyboard system components—the 5G mechanism, standard keyboard platform with Clip Mouse, plus gel palm support and gel mouse pad—in a stylish Platinum color scheme.

The Platinum 5G is designed to boost comfort and reduce the risk of musculoskeletal disorders, including carpal tunnel syndrome, neck pain, and upper and lower back pain. The Platinum mechanism offers the same ergonomic superiority as the standard 5G—the strongest and easiest-to-use arm on the market—in a Platinum powder-coated finish. Its labeled 0º to –15º dial-a-tilt feature prevents users from angling the keyboard in a high-risk typing posture and allows multiple users to note the angle at which they key most comfortably. Additionally, the mechanism boasts 7" of easy height adjustment and can be repositioned instantly without the use of locks or levers.
A Platinum Keyboard Platform with gel palm support is included to accommodate either a standard or small keyboard. The system also comes with a Platinum Clip Mouse, the first mousing solution to give users the ability to adjust their mousing position in all three dimensions for maximum comfort. Platform height, depth, lateral position and tilt are all customizable. The Clip Mouse attaches without tools to either side of the keyboard support for left- and right-handed use, and comes with a matching gel mouse pad.
Designed with the environment in mind, the Platinum 5G mechanism contains 30% recycled content and is 98% recyclable. Made of powder-coated steel to exacting standards, it exceeds all BIFMA standards and features a lifetime guarantee.
