Peerless covers a range of mounting options with two models in their extensive line. The PLCM-UNL straight column ceiling mount features 0- to 20-degree adjustable tilt and 360-degree swivel capability. The mount is suspended from a standard 1 1/2in. 11.5 NPT schedule 40 pipe, and it can handle a load of up to 200lbs. Included are theft resistant security fasteners attaching the screen to the mount. For in-wall mounting applications, the IM760PU provides 19in. of pull-out distance for big displays up to 71in. The wall box mounts between 16in. stud centers, and it has removable gang box and cable management access plates on the top and bottom. Stud locating tabs adjust 1/4in. left or right to aid in precise positioning. The finish is scratch-resistant fused epoxy available in high-gloss black or silver.
A wide variety of mounting solutions is fielded by Premier Mounts including the P4263F low-profile mount for flatpanels up to 63in. Equipped with adjustment points for both horizontal and vertical tweaking, the unit holds the back of the display less than 1in. from the wall, and it has a huge open area on the wall bracket for passage of cabling. It can also handle two displays side by side. When the mount is fitted on the SHLF-VE, the height is adjustable in increments of 1.3in. and there are shelves available for mounting equipment above or below the display. The AM300 swing-out mount for displays up to 68in. includes cable management and adjustable tension on swivel points. The mount extends from 4in. to 26in. from the wall and allows up to 15 degrees of tilt adjustment. The Premier line is extended with the AM50 VESA swing-out mount for displays up to 37in. and the AM80 swing-out mount for flatpanels up to 47in.
With a design clean enough for the living room and tough enough for outdoor deployment, the VXF220-B1 all-weather, full-motion mount from Sanus Systems features a weight capacity up to 200lbs. for displays from 42in. to 75in. Cables are concealed by FollowThru in-arm channels and QuickConnect system allows the mounting head to snap into the arm assembly and unlock with the push of a tab. ProSet after mounting adjustments allow fine tuning of height and leveling. The wall plate has mounting holes to accommodate 16in. or 24in. studs, and the all-weather steel hardware comes in a black finish.
Easy installation greets users of the SM-CS-ART2-L Strong Contractor series universal articulating mount for large displays. SnapAV designed the unit to allow quick attachment of the arms to displays up to 63in. The display then hangs on the mounting extension with 180-degree swivel and 15-degree tilt. When fully folded, the whole mechanism extends only 4 7/8in. from the wall. Wire management covers are built into the arms, and multiple bolt slots in the back plate allow a horizontal shift up to 6in. The unit is VESA-compliant at 200x100 and 200x200 up to 800x600. The structure is stamped steel and can hold a maximum display weight of 150lbs.
For bedside applications, the TXCMK201-S TX Light 2000 extension ceiling mount from Spectrum Industries can drop a display up to 21lbs. into a tight space with minimal obstruction. The mount swings 340 degrees and extends up to 63in. with an LCD height adjustment of 25in. The VESA 75/100 mounting plate can tilt over a range of 50 degrees, and the arm features internal cable management for a clean appearance. The display folds up to within 4in. of the ceiling base when not in use. The standard color is silver, but color, size, and feature customization is available.
Video Furniture International offers a solid solution to dual plasma display mounting with the PM-D dual plasma bracket. The unit can integrate with VFI’s plasma carts for a mobile videoconference setup including a height adjustable integrated camera/codec mount, a hidden interior wiring channel and 11 gauge steel construction capable of handling 32in. to 50in. flatpanel displays.
