Middle Atlantic’s New FlexView Series IFP Carts Debut

Middle Atlantic Products has expanded its FlexView Series line with the new FlexView Series IFP display cart. These carts incorporate device mounting, built-in power distribution and finishes into a slim, sleek, and sturdy design. Solving the weight, size and aesthetic challenges of integrating interactive flat panels (IFPs), the new professional display carts are engineered to support IFPs and larger displays ranging from 60 to 102 inches with a large VESA mounting and a robust weight capacity of up to 300 pounds, accommodating even the 84-inch Microsoft Hub.

The new display cart lineup is the first on the market available in a wide array of colors, with optional finishes in popular high-pressure laminate (HPL) colors including new textured, metallic HPLs, to allow presentation, collaboration, and digital signage technology to blend beautifully into surrounding environments and to serve a broader range of customer AV needs. With these unique options, the series elevates the aesthetics of foundational AV systems, and can correspond with preconfigured technical furniture solutions, enabling cohesive designs for any learning or meeting space.

The FlexView expansion offers both fixed and height-adjustable solutions. The height-adjustable cart models are equipped with the company’s e-lift feature and comply with ADA regulations (section 308) regarding reach ranges. The height adjustability from 40 to 60 inches to the center of the display is paired with a scalloped base, which ensures unimpeded access for interacting with the screen up close and at the desired ergonomic setting that’s comfortable for each user.

The system design optimizes each cart model for maximum uptime and reliability with premium storage, passive thermal management, and eight outlet power distribution with surge protection. FlexView Series IFP carts provide unmatched equipment storage with 2RU vertical mounting and a removable, tool-free Lever Lock for small-device mounting. Heavy duty, locking 4-inch casters make mobility easy, and the carts’ UL rating ensures the safety of the solution. Accessory camera mounts and soundbar brackets are available as enhancements, as are leveling feet that allow users to convert a cart to a stand quickly. Maintenance of the cart is simple and quick, thanks to easy-access, key-locked doors.
