TV Brackets With Our Stamp Of Approval
As TV wall mounting professionals we deal with a huge variety of TV wall brackets which vary hugely in terms of price and quality, especially with all full motion movable brackets and brackets for medium to large TV’s. Although we admit for fixed brackets on small TV’s, buying a bracket from your local supermarket is not the end of the world and as such the following is focused around full motion wall brackets, but as professionals we will only ever supply high quality TV mounts that we are happy to add our stamp of approval. You can rarely go wrong with any type Sanus of a B-Tech mount. All of the following have all been pre-approved by and we regularly use ourselves.
We have removed all the waffle and sales speech and in our own words described why these brackets are good. Things to check before choosing your bracket:
VESA pattern, some old flatscreens were sold beforehand but this is a standard most manufacturers use. It measures the distance between the fixing holes on the back of the TV set, the bracket you choose needs to be compatible with the TV. This the most important factor when choosing a bracket.
Size of the TV. Ok you can’t trust this one 100%, but it should give you an idea whether the TV is appropriate.
Weight and load. Sounds obvious but with larger screens and some of the first flat screens, there can be a substantial weight difference to other types of TV. It’s usually best to err on the side of caution and opt for the next bracket up in these situations.
Viewing locations. Remember that you are usually going to be sitting down when you watch the TV, bare this in mind when choosing a viewing angle and appropriate bracket.
Range of movement for Full Motion Brackets. If you are choosing and a full motion bracket which can be angled to where you want. Remember that not all brackets extend the same distance out. If you wish to pull the bracket out and angle at 90 degrees to the wall, the bracket would need to extend a greater distance than half the width of the TV, otherwise it will just bash into the wall and prevent you from doing so. Double armed brackets are usually best for this situation.
