Pre-Mounting Information and Tips
Before your scheduled TV mounting, there are a
few things that you will need to consider before your
appointment. The below list will assist you in helping
the installment process run smoothly by covering several key
areas that will need your immediate attention.
Positioning of TV:
One of the main factors you will have to consider is the
placement of the TV screen. The size of the TV and
available space that you have will determine where the screen
will be placed. Also, you may want to consider any light
and reflections from any windows.
The Omnipearl tech will advise about mounting height on day of
installation as every room and seating position varies.
Media Device Location:
Another major consideration would be, where the equipment will
be placed. You may want to consider a shelf system
located either under the TV or to the side or in some type of
floor standing media cabinet or piece for suitable furniture.
You could also consider placement in an adjoining room. It
would still be possible to control the units by IR relays that
would send the remote signals through the wall or through
closed cupboard doors.
Types of Wall Mounting Brackets:
You should consider the type
of wall mounting bracket such as
- Flat wall mount
- Super slim mount
- Tilt mount
- Pull out turn and tilt
- Ceiling mount
Next is the importance of cable management. Cable
management allows you to properly organize the cables thus
leaving a professional looking solution. Over-all the
absence of wires.
The options that are commonly used are to hide the cables in
surface trucking or to hide the cables into the wall.
- Surface Trucking:
Contact bonding, surface mount, white plastic trucking.
This attaches to the surface of the wall. The cables are
placed within the trucking, which is sealed with a
clip-on capping (lid). You can then paint the outside to
match the wall color.
- Hidden Cables:
This is the most popular method and when completed it
delivers a true cable-free appearance. Our approach to
your cable concealment depends on your wall type.
