Kensington UVStand on desk

Award-Winning UVStand Features Spacious Sanitization Compartment to Eliminate Up to 99.9% of Bacteria and Viruses from Keyboard, Mice, Mobile Phones, and Other Devices

SAN MATEO, Calif. – November 16, 2021– Kensington®, the worldwide leader in laptop security locks, desktop computing and mobility solutions for IT, business, and home office professionals and The Professionals’ Choice, today announced the availability of UVStand™ Monitor Stand with UVC Sanitization Compartment, Pro Fit® USB Washable Keyboard, Pro Fit® Washable Wired Mouse, and Pro Fit® Washable Wired Desktop Set. Ideal for use in home or office environments, the new products can significantly reduce the spread of germs from cross-contamination through everyday use of the computer and mobile devices.

A CES 2021 Innovations Award Honoree, Kensington’s UVStand (K55100) provides users with a solution that seamlessly integrates the ability to sanitize frequently-touched items and devices into the desktop workstation. UVStand combines the ergonomic benefits of a monitor or laptop stand with a large sanitization compartment that easily and conveniently eliminates up to 99.9% of bacteria and viruses from any exposed surface, such as keyboards, mice, trackballs and mobile phones.

Features and Benefits of UVStand:

  • Spacious UVC LED Sanitization/Storage Compartment – Spacious 20” x 11” x 3.5” sanitization compartment accepts most full-sized keyboards in addition to other devices and can be used to store desktop items when not sanitizing for a more clutter-free desktop.
  • Eliminates up to 99.9% of Bacteria and Viruses on any Exposed Surface – Fully-contained UVC LEDs safely sanitize devices within 10 minutes without the use of chemicals, liquids or wipes.
  • Promotes Healthy Posture and Optimal Comfort – Ideal for use as a laptop or monitor stand, UVStand supports monitors up to 40 lbs (18kgs) to elevate the user’s screen to eye-level height, improving workstation ergonomics by promoting a healthy desk posture.
  • Safe, Easy Operation – UVStand sanitizes devices with the touch of a button and will only operate when the compartment door is completely closed.  Complies with safety standards including IEC/EN 62471 and ANSI/IES RP-27 and is UL listed.

The new Kensington Pro Fit USB Washable Keyboard (K64407), Pro Fit Washable Wired Mouse (K70315) and Pro Fit Washable Wired Desktop Set (K70316) each feature a waterproof, washable, rugged design that resists spills and makes cleaning easy. With computer keyboards and mice being among the top five devices for cross-contamination, the new keyboard and mouse are safe for immersion or frequent spray cleaner use, enabling users to maintain a hygienic surface without fear of damage from drips and spills.

“The COVID-19 pandemic has fundamentally changed the way in which people react to and protect themselves against the threat of the spread of disease through bacteria and viruses,” explained Lisa Schuiteboer-Shuler, Ergonomics Category Marketing Manager at Kensington. “While wipes and liquids will likely continue to be the norm for sanitizing hands and large surfaces in homes and offices, the UVStand can provide an easy and effective solution for sanitizing frequently-touched computer or other personal devices without exposing them to chemicals or liquids.”

The Kensington UVStand Monitor Stand with UVC Sanitization Compartment is backed by a two-year warranty and is available now. The Kensington Pro Fit USB Washable Keyboard, Pro Fit Washable Wired Mouse, and Pro Fit Washable Wired Desktop Set are covered by three-year limited warranties. The products are available now through the Kensington Store and its partner sites.
