An uplifting experience.

HiRise is an elegant iMac stand designed to elevate your iMac or Apple Display to your optimal viewing height for a more comfortable and ergonomic work station. HiRise has an internal metal support shelf that lets you adjust the height of your Mac in one of six internal positions and is over-engineered to securely support any iMac or Apple Display. HiRise also creates a hidden storage compartment that’s perfect for stashing hard drives and cables, or your wallet and keys. Save your back and ditch the stack of books under your iMac in favor of HiRise.

HiRise for iMac:
• Lifts your screen higher (and better than a stack of books)
• Creates hidden storage for hard drives and hubs (and your wallet)
• Adjustable shelf supports your iMac from inside (and not set on top)

See eye to eye.

The ideal viewing position for your Mac is right about eye level. HiRise elevates your Mac to your most comfortable viewing height, ending the slouching in your chair or unsightly old phone book under your iMac. To adjust the height of HiRise, simply reposition the internal metal support shelf to the desired height and slide your iMac stand into HiRise. It’s really that simple. Oh yeah, and placing the shelf into the second slot from the bottom will align the screen height of your iMac with a Thunderbolt Display. How sweet is that?

Need hidden storage space?

The eye-catching design of HiRise comes with a bonus feature: Hidden storage. HiRise has perforated front and rear faceplates that attach with powerful magnets. Remove the front faceplate to reveal a nifty little nesting spot for a backup hard drive, Mac Mini, your wallet and keys, iPhone or anything else you’d like to declutter. The perforated faceplates allow plenty of ventilation to keep your drive cool. If you’d prefer safer, more permanent storage, you can securely attach the faceplates with the included screws. Either way, HiRise makes an awesome little hideout for gear, while allowing you to position your Mac to a more comfortable viewing height.

HiRise for iMac Stand

Designed for the big iMac.

HiRise was designed to support all iMac and Apple Display models that have an L-shaped stand, including Thunderbolt Display and the behemoth 27-inch iMac. HiRise features a solid, rounded, two-piece metal outer frame with an adjustable, internal metal shelf. Perforated front and rear faceplates give HiRise its distinct, ultra–mod look. Flip HiRise over and you’ll find two teflon sliders that allow you to easily turn and move your Mac without scratching the surface of your desk.

Meet the whole family.

Our HiRise family is the perfect way to elevate your MacBook, iMac, iPad mini or iPhone to a more comfortable viewing height. All three HiRise models are made from sturdy steel to support, showcase and boost your Apple user experience.

“Once you have found the best height for your workspace, it makes staring at a computer screen a bit more comfortable and hopefully healthier.”

Nick Spence, Macworld Australia

“The HiRise is a beautifully matching Mac accessory that's useful in more ways than one.”

Nir Schneider, GadgetMac

HiRise FAQs

What is this secret storage compartment on HiRise?

Remove the front or rear faceplate on HiRise and you will find a perfect little storage space for stuff like a Mac mini, portable hard drive or your wallet and keys. The faceplates are held in place with magnets, or you can use the included screws for more permanent storage. Faceplates are perforated to give devices stored inside adequate circulation.

Is it safe to use HiRise with my 27-inch iMac?

Totally. HiRise is over-engineered and constructed with metal to handle the weight of the largest iMac.

Is it really true that HiRise will perfectly align an iMac with a Thunderbolt Display?

Depends on your iMac: For any iMac made prior to the mid-2012 ultra-thin refresh, yes it's 100% true. Set the metal support shelf to the second slot from the bottom and the bottom edge of screen on your iMac will be in line with the screen on your Thunderbolt Display. For iMac (mid-2012-current), your iMac screen will be slightly off (by 2-3mm). This is different since the newer iMac is slightly shorter than the previous iMac, and has a laminated screen (eliminating the gap between the glass and screen), which changes where the bottom edge of the screen sits compared to before.

Is HiRise compatible with all Macs?

HiRise is compatible with all iMacs, Apple Thunderbolt Displays and Apple Cinema Displays with metal L-shaped desk stand (except the 30-inch Cinema Display)

Why would I want to elevate my Mac to sit higher on my desk?

Ideally your Mac screen should be right about eye level. HiRise gives you the ability to adjust the height of your Mac to your most comfortable viewing height, in a safe and sturdy manner.
