People do not want their television screens to be a distraction when they are relaxing in their living rooms. If they live in an open-concept home, they may want to view their television from different angles. Mounts are the solution to these problems. Below are the features that should be in a television wall mount.
What Is A Television Wall Mount?
These devices are versatile and easy to set up. They also free up valuable space by lifting the television off the ground. These devices are ideal for modern and small apartments as well as commercial buildings such as offices or coffee shops.
Television wall mounts allow users to adjust the angle of the screen so that it is easier to view. Full-motion television wall mountings let a user manually adjust the television to a specific angle by moving it up, down, or left.
Many units have tilting technology, which allows users to reduce the glare from the windows. Full-motion mounts also have the advantage of being able to tilt, rotate, or pull them away from a wall to plug in the cords and adjust them.
The Television Wall Mount Features
Television Size And Weight
It is important to verify that the model a user chooses can fit the television’s size. Every manufacturer will have a range of recommended sizes. Mounts that can accommodate larger televisions are available in many variations.
It is important to take into account the weight of the target television. It is worth checking the weight of a specific television model in case it is unusual. This information will be included in the product specifications.
Extension And Retraction
A user can extend the television’s reach from the wall. This is usually achieved by using hinged articulating arms. It is measured from the wall to where the television’s back is. This hardware requires that the television not be placed flush against the wall. There must also be a minimum distance between retracting points. However, most users want to keep the dimensions as small as possible.
What Is The VESA?
VESA stands for Video Electronics Standards Association. The VESA mount standard specifies the distance between the mounting holes on the television’s back. The VESA pattern on most televisions is between 100 x 100 mm and 400 x 400 mm (or 3 x 3 inches to 16 x 16 in). To find the VESA pattern on the television, a user should read the television’s manual or measure its back. This will assist them in making sure that the wall mount they select is compatible with it.
The installation of these devices is simple and normally takes from 30 minutes to one hour. A user will need to mount televisions to wall studs as they are too heavy to be secured directly to drywall. A stud finder is a tool that can help users locate the studs. They are usually 16–24 inches apart. Before mounting the television, make sure that there are no wires or screws.
Users should double-check with their brick or concrete wall manufacturer to ensure they can provide the necessary hardware.
