Guidelines for Buying a Flat Panel TV Mount One of the bonuses of a flat-panel television’s light weight and thin depth is the ease of mounting it directly on a wall in your home. Even as all flat-panel TVs are equipped with pedestals allowing them to be placed on a TV stand, wall-mounting a TV lets you save space and improves a room’s aesthetics. There are currently various types of wall mounts on the market, so there are a few things you should to know before you take your pick. Selecting the Right Mount for Your TV To decide on the right mount, you have to decide what level of movement you need your TV to have, or if you’d rather mount it in a permanent spot. Next, make sure you purchase a mount that matches the size and weight of your TV.

The Essential Laws of Services Explained
>> Fixed This type of mount keeps the TV snug against the wall, making for a very sleek, custom look. Clearly, a fixed TV wall mount will not accommodate any position tweak. 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. These are as well the most affordable TV mounts. >> Tilting Tilting mounts allow angling your TV vertically, while maintaining its place on the wall. However, they do not allow any horizontal movements. A tilting wall mount is advised for installations where a TV is positioned higher than usual, such as above a fireplace, allowing you to angle the screen down. Tilt adjustment also gives you some control over the glare that comes from windows or room lights. >> Full-Motion or Articulating Full motion TV mounts (also termed articulating mounts) allow the greatest range of movement for your flat panel TV. An articulated swingarm gives you complete freedom in terms of positioning your TV in any direction you want. In short, full-motion mounts make sure that your TV is at the best viewing angle at all times. Durability Aluminum, plastic and steel are all standard materials used by mount manufacturers. Our common sense will tell us that steel is most likely the most durable when used for bigger TVs, but you do feel confident that everything will be fine as long as the materials used are UL-rated for your TV. Conclusion Lastly, select a reliable TV mounting service to keep expensive and frustrating problems away. Although any two or three adults can do the task by themselves, it is always best to leave it to the pros. There’s a reason we call them specialists, and we should take advantage of their expertise.
