Tips for Buying a Flat Panel TV Mount One of the treats of a flat-panel television’s light weight and thin depth is the ease of installing it directly on a wall in your home. Although all flat-panel TVs have pedestals that let them be placed on a TV stand, wall-mounting a TV can save space and enhance the aesthetics of a room. There are several types of wall mounts on the market these days, so there are a few things you must know before making a choice. Picking the Right Mount for Your TV To select the right mount, first decide the kind of movement you want to have, or if you prefer to mount the TV in a permanent position. Next, be sure that the mount you get is rated for your TV’s size and weight.
Installations – Getting Started & Next Steps
Fixed or Motion Mount?
A Quick History of Options
>> Fixed This type of mount keeps the TV snug against the wall, making for a very sleek, custom look. Obviously, a fixed TV wall mount does not accommodate any position adjustment. It is best for installations where you have absolute control over the lighting so that glare on the TV screen is avoided; and for rooms where people tend to view the TV from the exact same position, preferably at the center fronting the TV. As well, these are the cheapest TV mounts. >> Tilting Tilting mounts let you angle your TV vertically, while keeping its position on the wall. However, they do not allow any horizontal movements. A tilting wall mount is best for installations where a TV is mounted higher than typical, like over a fireplace, letting you angle the display down. Tilt adjustment also affords you some control over the glare coming from room lights or windows. >> Full-Motion or Articulating Full motion TV mounts (also known as articulating mounts) allow the greatest range of movement for your flat panel TV. An articulated swingarm gives you total freedom as far as positioning your TV is concerned. In other words, full-motion mounts make sure that your TV is always at the right viewing angle. Durability Aluminum, plastic and steel are all standard materials used by mount manufacturers. Common sense tells us that steel will probably hold up the longest for larger TVs, but you should feel assured that regardless of the materials used, a mount that is UL rated for your TV will do just fine. Conclusion Finally, choose a well-reputed TV mounting service to avoid expensive and frustrating problems with your installation. While any two or three adults can perform the task on their own, it is always best to entrust it to a professional. There’s a reason they’re called experts, and you should take advantage of that.
