    When your workstation calls for a keyboard tray that houses all of your accessories on one handy surface, design the perfect one for you with the Humanscale 500 Big Keyboard Tray.

    Humanscale keyboard trays are designed to ensure that nearly all users are able to work consistently within their Neutral Reach Zone, keeping them in a comfortable posture.

    A major way to avoid stress injuries is to task on a keyboard tray that allows for negative tilt keying, typically between 0 and -15°. This assists your wrists while you type and mouse, supporting them and leading you to a more comfortable working experience. 

    Keep your keyboard, mouse, and everything you need at your fingertips with one desk accessory. The Humanscale 500 Big Keyboard Tray is now available with a Design Your Own option, letting you pick the components that aid you in working better.

    Features

    • Easily configured to meet your specific needs
    • 500 board offers the second widest single surface for a keyboard tray
    • Made of phenolic resin - an ultra-strong, remarkably thin (1/4") composite that's nontoxic, durable, and easy to clean
    • Design supports a variety of keyboards and mice combos and will fit most desks
    • Lack of mouse platforms means users don’t reach outside of their Neutral Reach Zone

    Specifications

    Mechanisms 8 adjustable arms available
    Track lengths 11" - 27" for varying desk depths
    Palm rests Available in foam or gel
    500 Big platform dimensions 27" W x 10.625" D
    Warranty 15 years
     

    Color

    The Humanscale 500 Big Keyboard Tray is available in black, white, or platinum. Both the keyboard mechanism and platform will come in the chosen color.

     

    Humanscale Keyboard Mechanisms

    Building a Humanscale keyboard system starts with finding the right mechanism for your setup. The mechanism determines the height adjustment and negative tilt for your keyboard tray.

    6G mechanism

    Humanscale's newest dial-a-tilt mechanism that instantly adjusts the platform's tilt without the need to lock or loosen any knobs or levers and slimmer than the 5G.

    Height adjustment 7": 1.75" above track to 5.25" below track
    Track length Comes standard with 22" track

    5G mechanism

    The dial-a-tilt mechanism instantly adjusts the platform's tilt without the need to lock or loosen any knobs or levers. Its solid build quality and simplicity make this mechanism the most popular mechanism Humanscale offers.

    Height adjustment 6.25": 1.25" above track to 5" below track
    Track length Comes standard with 22" track

    5GSM mechanism for limited-depth desks

    This mechanism goes 4" farther underneath a desk surface, getting a keyboard tray stored out of the way on a shorter track, perfect for desks with limited depth or small spaces.

    Height adjustment 4": 0.5" above track to 3.5" below track
    Track length Comes standard with 18" track

    5GAD mechanism for above-desk use

    This mechanism's greater-than-average adjustment range is ideal for sit-to-stand workstations, featuring steel construction for stable keying and mousing.

    Height adjustment 13.5": 7.5" above track to 6" below track
    Track length Comes standard with 27" track

    4G mechanism

    This is the older version of the 5G mechanism, featuring dial-a-tilt keyboard angle adjustablity.

    Height adjustment 6.25": 1.25" above track to 5" below track
    Track length Comes standard with 22" track

    4GAD mechanism for above-desk use

    This is a version of the 4G with a longer arm for use above a work surface, making it great for sit-to-stand soulutions.

    Height adjustment 11.5": 8.5" above track to 3" below track
    Track length Comes standard with 27" track

    2G mechanism

    Loosen knob to adjust and lock back into place. Unlike the 5G or 6G, this mechanism has no reference for keyboard platform angle.

    Height adjustment 6.25": 1.25" above track to 5" below track
    Track length Comes standard with 22" track

    KM mechanism

    This mechanism features a pre-set 0 degree tilt and knob-free adjustment.

    Height adjustment 6.25": 1.25" above track to 5" below track
    Track length Comes standard with 22" track
     

    Lateral Slider

    All Humanscale mechanisms pivot 360 degrees from the point where it is mounted to the track. Some users have a need for additional side-to-side adjustability. The lateral slider provides for eight extra inches of movement from right to left. This is a useful feature for someone at a large workstation that requires them to type facing different angles or monitors.

     

    Palm Support

    For the 500 Big Board, you can select a solid 27" palm rest or a split palm rest with one 20" section and one 7" long section; this feature comes in handy if a user doesn't want a palm rest in front of their mouse or keypad (pictured in main image above). All are covered with an easy to clean, black synthetic leather.

    For users with "slim" keyboards such as those made by Apple, a 19'' "slim" gel palm rest is available. Please note that this palm rest will not reach across the entire length of the tray, and will not fit flush against the keyboard tray corners like the 20'', 25'', and 27'' palm rests. The slim 19'' palm rests will sit roughly 5/8'' away from the closest corner when installed.

     

    Track Length

    The track mounts to the underside of your work surface. It directs and supports the Humanscale mechanism and keyboard tray as it slides forward and back. Standard length on most mechanisms is 21 5/8 inches. That length ensures that the keyboard tray can be completely stowed under your desk when not in use. Some mechanisms come standard with a shorter or longer track. Consult each description for that information, but all systems can be ordered with any track length.

    1. for work 4 Star Review

      Posted by on Sep 9th 2014

      I purchased this keyboard tray due to an ergonomic evaluation indicating need to have lowered usage without a hand reaching for the mouse. So far so good. The only wish I have is that it had the capacity to go UP as well as down...so I could stand and type. Also, while customer service was helpful...I do not think they were as thorough as they should have been when dealing with someone who really didn't understand the measurements etc.... But it could have been just the one person on the phone that day because my other call with them was super!

    2. Keyboard tray 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Sep 30th 2013

      I purchased this keyboard tray due to a 2 month pain in my elbow. After using the product for one week my elbow pain started diminishing and after three weeks was gone completely due to the ergonomics of the keyboard tray. The tray was easily installed and setup/adjusted. It is adjustable so anyone that uses my desk can adjust to the correct height. Very will made with little to no shaking motion while typing.

    3. Purchased Several! 5 Star Review

      Posted by on May 20th 2013

      We have purchased several of these for our company. They are well built with great ergonomics. We will be ordering more!

    4. Love this keyboard tray! 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Apr 18th 2013

      I had pulled out an old tray from the trash several years ago, but it finally gave out and would just sink onto my legs. I ordered this one and it is better than I could have dreamed. I use a Kinesis Freestyle keyboard tilted and spread pretty far apart with the numeric keypad off on the right edge and the Orthomouse (more like a rat than a mouse) in between them. It all actually fits. I didn't realize that I could put a tilt on the keyboard tray that allows me to type without bending my wrists at all. It is great! I LOVE it!!!

    5. Keyboard Tray 5 Star Review

      Posted by on Jan 7th 2013

      I ordered this tray to replace the standard non-adjustable tray that came with the home office desk. Installation was straight forward, and the tray is easy to use ? I highly recommend it.
