PC Computer Desks for
Classrooms / Education

featuring flipIT®

The flipIT® has revolutionized the way computer classrooms can be used. This patented device rotates LCDs into a semi-recessed position— perfect for the user to view the screen and to have unobstructed sight lines in the classroom. Computers can be instantly put away when the teaching method shifts from computer use to lecture, demonstration, or focus on textbooks or mobile devices. This opens up lesson plans and makes the computer classroom a truely multi-purpose classroom where computers are not in the way or causing a distraction. flipIT® allows freedom of access under complete instructor control.

flipIT LCD Monitor Computer Tables

The Original Laminate
flipIT® LCD computer desk

By simply pulling out the keyboard/mouse platform, the flipIT® mechanism opens to offer an LCD monitor, positioned ideally within your field of view.

Students maintain an unobstructed line-of-sight to the teacher and classroom presentations because the flipIT positions the LCD monitor below the horizon line: ergonomically ideal for the user.

When a clear work surface is desired for traditional classroom tasks, grasp the flipIT lid and close it. The keyboard retracts and the LCD flips under the desktop, secure and out of the way. Locking is available as an option.

Like all SMARTdesks, flipIT desks are designed to conceal and protect all the wires that are the source of the cable clutter that seems to haunt most computer labs.

flipIT® semi-recessed monitor placement is the ideal solution for computer-based training. Because the LCD monitor is in the visual plane of both the work surface and the presentation, students are comfortable in any position - making long sessions, shared computers and tutoring easier and noticeably boosting visual perception and level of concentration.

flipIT® LCD workstations offer plenty of legroom, 26" wide keyboard platforms with plenty of mousing surface and a CPU compartment large enough to handle all but the largest CPU cases.

flipIT® offers a variety of configurations and workstation widths to take full advantage of all of your usable space and help meet classroom density requirements and the multiple units reduce the cost.

Text or Technology?

The answer is: both!

Textbooks and note pads can take up the entire desktop, or can sit on the ledge in front of the screen. Now that widescreens are the norm, the flipIT K23 is now the popular choice.

Even More Leg Room!

This variation of the flipIT® Desk now has Brig or Li'l Brig CPU holders side-mounted, replacing the bulkier CPU cabinets. This give full IT access, asset security, and more knee space.

The flipIT® K23 comes with a wider dual-arm keyboard tray, so you have even more room to work.
