Determining The Right TV Bracket For TV Wall Mount Installation
Having the right bracket installed for your TV will improve the experience of watching TV. The most common types of TV brackets available are:
Fixed TV brackets
The most commonly used brackets used for TV wall mounting in lounge rooms. These brackets are very durable and can be installed on any type of walls. Fixed TV brackets will ensure that your TV is as close to the wall as possible. With this bracket, your TV will be fixed in one position and its position will not be able to be adjusted.
Tilted TV brackets
This type of bracket allows your TV to be adjusted downwards to an angle of approximately twelve degrees. These brackets are most commonly used in bedrooms and other locations where a TV needs to be installed very high, such as in gyms, restaurants and cafes. With a tilted TV bracket, your TV won’t be as close to the wall as with a fixed bracket.
All-motion TV brackets
This bracket allows for your TV to be adjusted in all directions. These TV wall mounts are more complicated to install as they are heavy and a lot more bulky. They also cannot be installed on all type of walls, but our technicians will let you know if it will be possible.
This bracket is commonly used when mounting a TV in the corner of a room or when you want to have the possibility to turn your TV left an right. These brackets can be installed on brick walls or on walls with studs.
Ceiling TV wall mounting
Commonly used when it is impossible to install a TV on a wall, as well as in restaurants, pubs, and hotels so that the TV can be seen from all locations. These TV brackets allow the mounting of a TV to a ceiling.
Before installing any of these brackets it is important to consider the type of wall available and its condition, the weight of the TV and its size.
