Guidelines 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. 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 several types of wall mounts on the market these days, so there are a few things you must know before making a choice. 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 the mount you buy is rated for the weight and size of your TV.

What Do You Know About Experts
>> Fixed This mount attaches the TV tight against the wall, giving a very clean, sleek and 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 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 lets you move the TV towards practically any direction. In other words, full-motion mounts will make sure that your TV is at the right viewing angle at any time. Durability Steel, plastic and aluminum are all standard materials mount manufacturers utilize. 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. While any two or three adults can perform the task on their own, it is always best to entrust it to a professional. They’re called experts for a reason, so it may be best to take advantage of that.
