About AVF

AVF is a world leading supplier of TV wall mounts and support systems with over 30 years experience supplying worldwide markets. Product development, prototyping, and testing are undertaken by a dedicated innovation and design team at AVF's Global Innovation Center in Telford, UK. AVF's product range offers innovative and attractive solutions for all TV wall mount and support system requirements, with a continually evolving new product development process focusing on customer requirements.

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.

AVF VESA Size
VESA standards are the set distances of threaded screw holes on flat-panel TVs and monitors
VESA Size

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.

TV Size

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.

TV Weight

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.

AVF Flat Mount

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.

AVF Tilt Mount

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.

AVF Multi-Position Mount

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.

AVF Wall Type
It is recommended to use a stud finder when mounting your HDTV; do not mount onto drywall
Wall Type

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

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.

This product is terrific.
Debi
While it does work, the plastic bottom "catch" that are supposed to click in and secure the tv onto the lower rail just do not hold up.
Rory Egan
Compared to the alternatives at local stores, I felt like this was a good deal on a good product.

I installed this mount a few weeks ago, and I'm very pleased with it. The TV that I mounted is a 46" Samsung (UN46C6300). I mounted the TV over my fireplace, so the 15 degree tilt works great to adjust the viewing angle.

However, I have two slightly negative points to mention:
* I prefer hex-head lag-bolts (rather than the phillips head lag-bolts that were provided), so I had to drop by Lowe's to pick up a set of those. I realize that this is a personal preference, but driving the hex head bolts with a ratchet was much easier than struggling with stripping the head of the phillips head bolts.
* The spacers that I needed to use for my TV were not a consistent depth. Three of the spacers were correct, but there was an odd fourth spacer that was about half the depth of the others. Luckily, Samsung included a better set of spacers, so this was really a non-issue.

If it weren't for these two minor points mentioned above, I would give a hearty 5-star rating. Regardless, I'm very pleased with this purchase, and I firmly believe this is one of the best values that you can find on very good slim mount for large flat panels.

I used this to mount my 60" LG 60PV250 plasma that weighs in at 108 lbs. The brackets appear very heavy duty. This was my second wall mounted TV and these brackets are of much heavier gauge steel. The bracket that mounts on the wall is 32" wide so no problem attaching to the studs that are 16" apart. Once mounted and centered on the bracket, the TV can move about 7" left or right to get perfectly centered.

This mount is super thin, only 1" off the wall which is very nice. As you tilt it forward, the lower half of the TV gets closer to the wall. The ends of my HDMI cables are the typical straight kind, so they hit the wall when tilted so I'm going to order some 90 degree elbow cables. The tension on the tilt is easily adjustable.

The safety clips took some effort to get get locked on, but not too bad. Overall, I would definitely purchase again.

This is an excellent product. Easy to assemble, perfect instructions, looks great. Installation required my own screws to adapt to my wallboard, but that was not unexpected.

I was a bit concerned about this before I got it, but it is a very well built, very simple to install product. It worked exactly as I expected. If you will need to get behind the TV often, this is probably not for you, but it's exactly what I wanted. The price was way less than some of the other mounts I looked at (which is why I was a bit concerned about quality)

This sturdy mounting system is easy to install and allows for very flexible horizontal positioning. I have mounted a 55 inch Samsung LED TV with very flush results. The tilting feature allows good viewing angle while maintaining the lowest profile possible.

In my opinion it is too thin and some of the wire wont fit on the back of the tv. Had to cut a hole in the wall for the wire to prevent stress on them.

Arrived very quikly. Shipping however to Canada was almost the cost of the mount. 15degrees tilt is way more than you'll ever need unless you're laying on the floor. The tilt though isnice to get at the tv ports, especially if you have usb stick. Love the low profile. Easy to asseble and strong.
