If you have purchased a plasma TV or LCD TV, you will have surely thought of buying a TV wall bracket as well. However, if you want to mount your TV using these brackets then you need to it know the VESA size on the back of the TV. The various VESA sizes are:
• VESA 75 – 75mm apart in square
• VESA 100 – 100mm apart in square
• Larger screens have VESA 200 which is 200mm apart in square.
A wall bracket is directly rigged into these VESA 75, 100 or 200mm holes. It is also vital to know if you are mounting the TV on a plaster board wall. If yes, then ensure there is a stud behind the wall for support. You must carefully mount the TV leaving 16mm for air circulation. This makes sure the components in the TV last for a longer period of time.
Many modern TV wall brackets will mechanically hold your TV at the necessary distance away from the wall. However, if you are not quite sure what position to place your bracket in then it is advisable to opt for a cantilever bracket, as it lets you tilt and turn your TV from the wall. In this way you can optimise your angles of viewing.
Mounting your TV in the corner of a room is an ideal option. There are many modes of brackets in the VESA mount section. These categories allow you to fix TVs from 10 inches to 60 inches in size, and extend up to 30 inches from the wall. Another option is the universal wall bracket which covers all VESA sizes.
If you are in doubt about installing the TV wall bracket yourself, it is always recommended that you employ an expert to ensure that the job is done correctly and to the highest possible standard.
