Tiers Special
Applications Guide
Tiers “Shift” is available on “T1” Aluminum. Shift allows the user to slide the keyboard platform to the left or right to refocus the keyboard solution to
their task. For example, a right hand orientation that is mouse intensive could shift the tray left and position the mouse surface over numeric resulting
in a more convenient and comfortable posture for the user.
Note how the tray position changes relative to the arm.
Removable Thin Edge Palmrest
Tiers thin edge antimicrobial palmrest is easily removed
without the use of tools. Replacement and individual
palmrests are available (ACGTT).
Quick Install Feature
Tiers “T1” Aluminum features a pin & knob system that does not require
any tools for installation.
Arms A, B, and C all come with threaded tray heads for quick and easy
installation of any Tiers keyboard platform.
