ALTERNATIVE OFFICING: A PLACE FOR YOUR STUFF
An optional tow-bar makes this line particularly appealing for alternative
officing applications. In a corporate setting, the lockable design
encourages internal personalization (the Carlinesque theory of "a
place for your stuff"). It represents a more practical
solution for employee morale than a numbered locker and a sterile
SEMINARS AND TRADE SHOWS:
The locking capability also provides expanded utility in seminars
and trade shows. The computer can be lowered, locked, and equipment
safely secured out of site. The unit may be left in a meeting room

yachts or in other space-limited surroundings, insertion of an optional
leaf allows this model to convert to a 24" x 48" work
or display table.
It also comfortably seats two for dinner.
LECTERNS & SIT/STAND WORKSTATIONS:
An optional matching base and crown permits the workstation to convert
to either a height adjustable lectern or a sit/stand mobile workstation.
The base is fan cooled and equipped with Lift
& Roll mechanisms for mobility.
The LS-512P lectern has a viewport enabled desktop and below-desk
monitor mounting. The work-height remains adjustable, and the monitor
viewing height and its viewing angle below the desktop are adjustable,
as is the keyboard height.
In the event that in the future, a below-desk monitor style is no
longer desired, an optional conversion kit will allow the user to
switch back to a natural viewing style of workstation.
Variations of the natural viewing style LS-512, LS-MW offer lecterns,
sit/stand workstations or industrial workstations with NEMA compatability.
system manufacturers/installers can be provided with a separate
computer desk module. Regardless of the height of the employees
who rotate in and out of a cubicle over the years, the ergonomics
issue will have already been addressed. The workstation can adjust
to fit each user. It is handicapped accessible, and the computer
equipment can be safely stowed and locked below-desk after hours.
Standard and Corner modules are offered.

kiosks and display fixtures to enable specialized media display
capabilities with equipment visiblity on demand.
The entire line of convertible computer workstations are reasonably
priced since their creators also developed the lift mechanism
that makes all this possible. The lift has also been designed for
use in industrial/manufacturing applications.
