Metro Keyboard Mechanism                                             Order  Code           76KB490

Metro 490 is an adjustable keyboard mechanism that is attached under your desk and carries a separate platform of size to suit your needs (our standard stock size is 600 x 250mm). Metro 490 drops 160mm and locks anywhere between level and the 160mm drop. Where your desk is deep enough (say 800mm+) the platform can be cut out of the desk. Where you have a more modern desk of 700mm depth the platform can be added to give extra distance however in this situation we recommend the Retractable version  (see separate listing) If you wish to raise a front platform instead of lowering, the unit can be turned back to front.

Brackets are 490mm wide and unit is 400mm deep. Handle protrudes 60mm on right side. Rear section is 70mm deep in closed position and is 270mm long. Front bracket is 130mm long and tapers from 10mm to 20mm. NOTE: Standard colour is graphite.

Also available with a silver strata platform at standard 600mm wide x 250mm deep x 25mm thick(code 76B490P).

    Good value for money

    Posted by Jon Tocker on 23rd Apr 2020

    Inexpensive but good quality. Quite a bit lighter than other similar products with which I've had experience - which is preferrable, for something designed to be suspended beneath a desk by a few screws. Mechanism locks securely in whatever position you put it, handle can be rotated out of the way once it's secured. Definitely a must for bringing the keyboard down to an appropriate level below standard desk height.
