Though we may never see the clever remake of the classic film, The Man Who Knew Too Much (About Office Furniture), the world of office furniture has its share of secrets. If you’re new to the industry, I’ve created a list of the top ten things I think you should know!

PART 1

  1. Secret Identity: Serial Number.

Even if your desk is under cover (literally covered with phones, computers, etc.), once we have a serial number, we can tell you all there is to know about a particular product. Our unique serial numbers easily provide our HON members with everything they need: original order information, model numbers, production year, and even if we’ve spoken to you before about that unit.

  1. The Name is Rail. Hang Rail.

The secret agents of the office furniture world? Hangrails. Their aliases include, but are not limited to: File Bar, Rails, Hanging File Bars, Dividers, or simply put, ‘those things the folders hang on.’ You’ve got side-to-side (standard on steel laterals) or front-to-back (an accessory) or even cross rails (standard on laminate laterals). The good thing about hangrails is that, if you have your storage product’s serial number, our stealthy HON Customer Support team can easily identify which hangrail (or cross rail) you need.

  1. The Language of HON

A good spy learns to speak multiple languages, and we’re right in line. Our secret language is model numbers. HIWM1 translates to HON Ignition Work Mid-Back. HCG6? HON Ceres Guest Chair.  Moreover, the majority of our series all have a common starter. For instance, the 10500 series models all begin with H105 and all Voi models begin with HLSL. Additionally, some of our models also handily list their dimensions: a Preside 52” X 240” veneer boat shaped table top is model number HTVB52240.

  1. Any Parting Words?

Parts are Mr. Hang Rail’s partner in crime. They wear many disguises, including the role of a ‘Finished Good’. Anything that has a model number is technically a ‘Finished Good’ item. Occasionally, this can extend into the realm of parts; take model HFLDGRMT for example. Though this is a grommet (typically a part), it’s a ‘Finished Good’ item because it has a model number.

  1. Bridging the Gap

Fortunately, bridges are not just used to cross bodies of water and a return doesn’t just mean coming back. Workstation configurations involve many different types of product. Desks and Credenzas, though similar, are different. The main difference is the depth of the work surface; a desk is between 30”-36” deep, whereas a credenza is 24” or less. Bridges can link the two, or a return can be used to create an “L” Workstation.

HON offers a variety of accessories that can enhance a workstation and promote wellness in the workplace.  Two of our favorites are monitor arms and keyboard trays.

MONITOR ARMS

Choose a single or dual monitor arm that can either clamp to the work surface or mount through the grommets for easy installation and reconfiguration.  Here are three benefits of using monitor arms:

  1. Space Saving: The arms fold completely back to the post to provide maximum desktop space, and cord management clips help create a less cluttered work surface.
  2. Enhanced Collaboration: The arms allow monitors to swivel 360° and even change from landscape-to-portrait, making it easier to collaborate with a coworker or customer.
  3. Functionality: The gas spring and counterbalance technology in the arms allow the monitors to easily move back and forth or up and down so users can adjust their monitors to the proper height and depth to minimize neck and eye strain.

Monitor Arms

KEYBOARD TRAYS

Choose from three keyboard tray options that accommodate mouse use for both left- and right-handed users.  Here are three benefits of using keyboard trays:

  1. Space Saving: Use a tray to hold your keyboard and instantly enlarge your workspace.  When not in use, the entire tray retracts under the worksurface to create a clean, uncluttered work area.
  2. Enhanced Comfort: All three keyboard trays come with a wrist rest made of foam-gel to maximize comfort.
  3. Promoted Wellness: HON offers a sit-to-stand keyboard tray that gives users the ability to adjust their posture throughout the day.  Pair this tray with our monitor arms for a total ergonomic solution at a much lower price point than an entire sit-to-stand workstation.

Keyboard Trays

Workplace accessories, such as monitor arms and keyboard trays, allow workers to customize their workstations to improve ergonomics and increase comfort, productivity, and overall workplace satisfaction.
