Today's flat panel televisions are as charming off as they are on. Quality craftsmanship, premium materials and exceptional design has seen them become the centrepiece of any living room, and just like a portrait, it's become common practice to hang them up.

There are mainly three different mount functionalities. These include:
Fixed: This mount will secure your TV as close to the wall as possible, with enough clearance for cabling and the power source. Newer, thinner televisions may require the power wall plate to be recessed, along with video and audio leads.
Tilt: Ideal if you'd like to mount your TV higher on the wall as it can tilt within a 15 degree range for an improved line-of-sight. The tilting can also help televisions that suffer from light reflection issues.
Full motion: This mount offers a multitude of viewing angles. It's ideal if you'd like to swivel the TV around for viewing in another room.
When selecting the appropriate TV bracket you need to consider 3 things:
1) The required functionality of the wall mount (fixed, tilt or full motion)
2) TV weight and size
3) Your TV's mounting pattern - on the back of the TV (ie: 400mm x 600mm)
