Quality and Safety
Quality and safety are paramount in the design and manufacture of AVF products. Multi-site operations in China manufacture products to AVF's exacting designs and specifications and rigorous internal quality procedures at manufacturing plants are supplemented by independent third party testing leading to quality and safety accreditations.
Choosing the Right AVF Mount For You
Flat panel TVs are ideally suited to be wall mounted. Wall mounting your TV can create extra space and give a stylish uncluttered look to your room. The slim profile of flat-panel TVs means that they can be discreetly placed flat against a wall or they can be easily repositioned when mounted on a multi-position mount.
VESA standards are the set distances of threaded screw holes on flat-panel TVs and monitors
A further consideration when choosing a flat panel TV wall mount is whether your TV is VESA compatible, and if so, which VESA standard it is. VESA standards are set distances between threaded screw holes on the back of flat-panel TVs and monitors. All AVF flat panel mounts are VESA compliant and specify the maximum VESA standard they will fit. Many products also fit non-VESA-compliant monitors and TVs.
The size of mount to choose is dependent on the screen size of your TV. AVF has flat panel mounts in four categories: Small, Medium, Large, and Extra Large. Overlap exists between size categories as some mounts are compatible with a wide range of screen sizes.
Another important consideration is the weight of your TV. AVF mounts are subject to rigorous weight testing; however, you should not exceed the weight limit indicated on products. Rigorous internal quality procedures at the design and manufacture stages are also supplemented by independent third party testing leading to quality and safety accreditations. AVF products are UL listed after being tested to hold four times the weight recommended for each product.
TV Room Position
The distance between you and your TV and the height you place your TV is usually based on personal preference. If you sit too close, lower-quality signals may appear pixelated, and if you sit too far away you may not see the high quality detail in HD or DVD images. Where you intend to place your TV will also have a direct influence on the type of wall mount best suited to your needs.
Flat to wall: If your aim is to achieve a discreet appearance, a flat to wall mount may be ideal for your room. Flat to wall mounts are designed with a slim profile to enable you to position your TV flush to the wall.
Tilt: Wall mounts with a tilt function enable you to place your TV in a higher position as they provide the opportunity to tilt your screen downwards for optimal viewing. Tilting capabilities can also help remedy situations where light is glaring off your screen.
Multi-position: Multi-position mounts are ideal for positioning your TV into a corner or where you would like a wide range of viewing angles, giving you the ability to view your TV from multiple rooms, such as the living room and kitchen, for example. They are the most flexible mounts available and allow you to fold out your TV on one or more arms and multiple pivot points to give a maximum range of viewing angles. Multi-position mounts also usually have tilting capabilities and can be neatly folded back against the wall.
It is recommended to use a stud finder when mounting your HDTV; do not mount onto drywall
It is important to consider the type of wall you are mounting your TV on. It is highly recommended to use a stud-finder to find wooden studs and to ensure there are no hidden pipes or wires behind where you intend to drill. Do not mount onto drywall, plasterboard or paneled walls unless all wall plate screws are fixed into a wooden stud behind the drywall, plasterboard, or paneled walls. Use suitable wall plugs and screws when mounting onto a solid concrete wall. It is your responsibility to ensure the wall structure and fixings are capable of supporting the screen and mount in a normal working environment. Check the strength of the installation before installing and if you have any doubts regarding installation please consult a qualified contractor.
Cable management is something you may wish to consider when wall mounting your TV in order to achieve a neat, uncluttered finish. There are different ways of managing your cables and you may need to consider which approach you will take before installing your mount onto the wall.
- Surface coverings: The easiest cable management solution is to cover your wires with cable covers. These are coverings which stick to your wall over your cables. Usually made out of plastic, they are available in varying thicknesses and are typically paintable.
- Concealing in hollow walls: If you are mounting your TV on a stud or partition wall you may choose to run your cables in the hollow space between studs. You can so this by drilling a hole close to where the wall plate of your mount will be and threading your cables through the hollow space to emerge lower down your wall. Depending on the size of the hollow gap however you may have difficulty in threading thicker cables or end connectors. Make sure you check for pipes and wires before drilling, and ensure the screws of the wall plate of your mount are fixed into a wooden stud.
- Concealing in solid walls: If you are mounting your TV on a solid wall you can conceal your cables by cutting or chiseling out a channel within your wall in which to run your cables. Simply plaster over the channel and repaint to achieve a smooth finish.
