The most common style of iPad stand is the simple, vertical stand. It’s easy to install and can accommodate many styles of screen.
Choosing your favorite style is simple. Just look for the material used and weight requirements for your needs. You may even be able to find a lightweight stand that is adjustable, which will make it easier to move it from workstation to workstation or in and out of the garage.
Next, you should decide how you want the stand to be installed. Vertical stands are usually the easiest to set up, although some materials require glue or screws to hold it down. If you have limited DIY skills, you may want to ask for help from the assemblyman or from friends who are handy with tools.
A stand should include the bases, if the holder needs them. They are available in three standard sizes – L-frame, R-frame and C-frame. After you’ve picked the type of stand that you need, you can choose from two or three available finishes.
If you have a large workspace, such as in the home, you may want to consider having a folding stand. This allows you to move the display between workstations without lifting the tablet. It is more stable than the L-frame stand.
A L-frame stand usually includes a back support. Most owners like it, because it helps prevent the tablet from tipping forward on the work surface. Many back supports have threaded inserts to attach brackets. Some have telescoping tabs to support the panel directly.
You may also choose a chair, if you choose to use one. This type of stand is designed to be mounted on a flat table or work surface. Since they are more stable, they are better for heavy duty work, such as when cleaning or metal crafting.
In addition, the stand may be matched with leather chairs, which can keep the tablet level while keeping your hands comfortable. The stand is often placed away from where you do the work, so the heat doesn’t dry on the arm, or on the screen, if the finish is scratched.
Some stands are designed to fit in the available space available in smaller spaces, such as in a kitchen or garage. The stand is mounted on a cart or similar piece of equipment.
There are stands that can be hidden away in case there is a problem with the installation. If the holder is close to the floor, it’s not a problem. If it’s in the middle of the room, it’s possible to hide the stand and still display the iPad at its best.
If you decide to install a stand, you’ll probably need an assemblyman or assistant. They should be able to show you how to position the holder, and how to set up the stands. Many companies will give you a free demonstration of their products, as a way to get your business.
If you’re looking for a new workstation arrangement, consider a vertical or folding stand. With a wide range of styles and colors, you’re sure to find a stand that suits your needs.
