Modern flat screens, whether plasma, LCD or LED TVs, or specially designed to work as computer monitors, impressing not only with their sharp images but also with their compact design and small footprint. As screens are so flat and light, nowadays it is no longer necessary to place your smart TV or display on a small table, even if it comes with a special pedestal. To save space, you can easily hang it on the wall, using special fixed TV brackets, or even opt for a TV swivel mount allowing you to orient the screen as you wish when watching TV from the sofa or another point in the room.
To purchase your new TV wall mount, you do not need to search for information to check its compatibility with the screen; all you need to do is know its exact size. That's even easier with classic TV stands, as the holders are attached to the back of the TV or monitor. As we will see in the next paragraph, the distance between the screws is standard, so you can position the screen directly on the TV bracket and tighten the screws quickly, without having to carry any weight. For a table-top TV, sideboard or floor stand, the procedure is even more straightforward. The advantage of this type of stand is its easy portability, which allows you to move even light flat screens freely.
Although colloquially known as VESA Mounts, VESA refers to the Video Electronics Standards Association, the organisation that coordinated the standardisation of mounting systems. The flat display mounting interface (FDMI) was created in 1997, but over the years it has been expanded to provide mounting solutions for the marketing of different sizes of flat displays. No matter what display technology and brand; you can securely hang your TV or monitor on the wall with your VESA TV wall mount. Simply flip your device upside down to find the holes to insert the screws and fix it to the TV mount stand.
How to know if your screen is compatible with the VESA standard? Simply turn your TV or monitor over and look for an area (rectangular or square) with holes to position the TV stand and attach it to a wall, ceiling, arm or pedestal. The list of VESA partners includes the vast majority of TV and monitor manufacturers; however, as some brands do not adhere to this convention, in some cases, you’ll have to use a VESA adapter for your TV bracket. If your TV or monitor is VESA-compatible, this means that it conforms to the standard, which allows you to hang it easily thanks to a stand with the same standard, with the certainty that the type of holes and the distance between them match.
Nowadays it is normal to have at least one large TV set or several TV sets in the house, both as a complement to the living room and the bedrooms. These TV sets can be of considerable size and weight, which is why the manufacturing materials of TV brackets and mounts are the first aspect you should consider. Generally, steel tv mounts are quite reliable, as this material offers high resistance. However, depending on the model of TV bracket you choose, you should make sure that the joints are well made and reliable, to keep everything in order and ensure safety at all times.
Another important aspect is the maximum load your TV wall mount can bear, and this quite likely to have a big impact on its price. If you want a product offering good value for your money, you need to find the right balance, considering the size of your TV, as well as its weight, comparing it to the capacity of the TV bracket as indicated by the manufacturer. For safety reasons, it is advisable to purchase a model that can support a couple of kilograms more than the weight of the TV, a detail that you might consider when considering which one to purchase.
