• Perfect Position

thumb

Height is incredibly important when it comes to the installation of your TV. TV’s can be installed anywhere and at any height, but it is critical to accurately position your TV for your needs and preferences. Heights just below a meter in relation to the bottom of your TV and the ground are ideal. For example, no higher than a meter and no lower than 900mm is optimal.

  • Distance from Screen

thumb

  • If you’re sitting further away from the screen then you want your screen to be higher than normal.
  • You must allow for obstacles to your viewing, such as coffee tables, cabinets and pictures on the wall
  • The general rule for optimum viewing distance from the TV is 2.5 times the diagonal length of the screen.
  • Viewing Angle

thumb

  • The viewing angle is the angle at which a TV’s picture quality stands to degrade when it is watched from the side, or underneath if you’re sitting and the TV is positioned high.
  • A TV always has the best picture quality when viewed from directly opposite the screen, or straight in front.
  • The farther you move to the side of the screen, the more colours will fade and picture quality decreases.
  • Screen Height

thumb

  • The general rule for viewing height is the height of the viewers eye line, which will eliminate glare.

  • Remember, it is better to slightly look down on your TV than straining your neck to look up at it.
  • If you want your TV over a fireplace, it is best to buy a bracket that has a tilting option, as you will strain your neck by looking up at your TV. Tilt the TV down for optimum viewing.
  • Types

If you want to save space in your TV room or eliminate unwanted clutter caused by cords, then wall mounting your TV is the best option. There are countless types of TV brackets that will suit your needs but be aware of how much space you have for the type of bracket you will use:

1) Full Motion – allows your TV to be pulled away from the wall and titled to multiple angles to enable easy viewing

  • How To Install
  • Step 1 – Find Your Stud and Mark Out

Use a stud finder to find the studs in the wall and mark out. Place the bracket on the wall and use a spirit level to ensure its level. Then mark the positions for your fixings along the stud, remembering to put the bracket over the top of a power point to conceal the cords.

  • Step 2 – Predrill Holes

Predrill your first hole you have marked out then hold you wall mount to the wall and using a shifter, affix your first coach bolt with a washer but don’t tighten the bolt just yet! Predrill the three other holes using the wall mount cut outs and screw in your bolts. Remember that you will need to find the right bolts that suit the TV you are mounting. This is achievable by screwing the bolts into the back of the TV to find which ones fit.

  • Step 3 – Attach Bracket Hooks

Ensure that the bracket hooks are facing the right way, and then using the bolts, secure the brackets to the back of the TV using the star washers. Ensure brackets aren’t poking over the top of the TV.

  • Step 4 – Plug in and Position

Set the angle of the bracket hooks to what you want and tighten the nut on the side to hold them in place. Plug in all cords to the TV before you mount in on the wall. Using a long screwdriver, tighten the screws at the bottom of the bracket to hold the TV in position.
