What you should know before putting up your TV

wall-tvFlat panel TVs are ideally suited to be mounted on the wall. The wall mount your TV installers gives extra space and makes sure your room has a stylish and uncluttered.

The thin profile of flat panel TVs means that they can be placed flat on an unobtrusive manner against a wall or that they can be put in a simple way at a place other when they are mounted on a multi-position mounting.

TV format
The size of the assembly that you need depends on the screen size of your TV. Another important factor is the weight of your TV. Audiovideoking suspension systems are subjected to rigorous weight testing, however, you need the maximum weight stated on the products, not to exceed.

TV Position
The distance between you and your TV and the height you place your TV is usually a matter of personal preference. If you sit too close lower quality signals may appear pixelated, and if you sit too far away you may not see the high quality detail in HD or DVD signals.

The place where you intend to mount your television is also a direct influence on the type of wall mount you need.

Flat on Wall
If you want to ensure that the television is not noticeable, then a flat to the wall mounting is ideal for your room. Flat to wall mounts are designed with a slim profile so you can set your TV to any wall.

Tilt
Wall mounts with a tilt function ensure that you can put your television on a higher place because the screen can be tilted down for the best viewing experience. The tilt function is also useful for troubleshooting situations when the light shines on your screen.

Multi Position
Multi-position mounts are ideal to place your television in a corner or if you want multiple viewing angles. These are the most flexible settings that are there and you can get your TV on one or more arms and multiple pivot points to expand the maximum number of viewing angles.

Multi-position settings usually have a tilt feature that allows them to be folded neatly against the wall.

VESA Size
Another factor to take into account when choosing a wall mount for flat panel TV is whether your TV is VESA compatible, and if so, which VESA standard it is. VESA standards are set distances between screw holes on the back of flat panel televisions and monitors. You can read more about VESA standards on our Quality and Safety page.

Cable Management
Cable management is perhaps something that you wish to keep in mind when wall mounting your TV so that all finished neat and tidy. There are several ways your cables can be stored and it is a good idea to keep this in mind before you mount your wall mounting.

Cable cover
The easiest cable management solution to cover your wires with duct / cable channels. These are coverings which can be stuck on the ropes on the wall. They are usually made of plastic, available in various thicknesses and can be painted.

Concealed in the hollow walls
If your TV is mounted on a plaster wall or partition, you can use the cables in the hollow space between the boards running. This is done by drilling a hole close to the site of the wall plate, the cables by stabbing the cavity and let out the bottom of the wall come. However, it may be more difficult with thicker cables or end connectors.

As described on page Installing a TV Wall Hanging system, you should ensure that you check the pipes and wires before drilling holes, and that the screws of the wall plate of your suspension system are mounted on a wooden confirmation.

Eliminating in solid walls
If you want to mount the TV on a solid wall, the cables can be concealed by cutting a trough in the wall or chiseling which lets you run the cables. You can then plastering the wall of the channel and repaint a smooth finish.
