Have you noticed that television is evolving? Although the earliest tablet models highlighted their lightweight design, now everyone seems to be looking for oversize flat-panel TVs for the best entertainment experience.
So now that you’ve bought a TV, you may want to see it from all angles and install it on the wall. Hanging the TV on the wall will be more beautiful and save space. You can save money and experience the fun of doing the work yourself.
This job doesn’t have too much trouble once you know where it will be connected, what type of TV bracket you want, VESA mode, TV weight and size. But how much weight can a TV bracket bear, and how can you guarantee that your expensive monitor won’t fall on the floor?
Follow this guide and you will see if your TV wall mount can accommodate your TV.
The most important thing to consider when installing a TV is whether your wall can support it. Even the most modern TV sets can be heavy. If it goes beyond the bearing range of the TV bracket, the TV will fall to the ground.
Secondly, the size of the TV is also very important. To determine the size of the VESA, you need to measure the distance between the four holes on the TV horizontally (in millimeters) and then vertically. Common VESA and TV sizes include: 200 x 200 for TVs under 32 inches, 400 x 400 for TVs under 60 inches, and 600 x 400 for large screen TVs between 70 and 84 Inches.
Different wall installation requirements
- Ordinary brick wall: when installing the wall mounted TV on the ordinary brick wall, there is no need for special tools and skill, just use the impact drill to punch holes in the wall, screw and hang the TV.
- Gypsum board wall: after selecting the positioning point, first drill a hole in the center of the hanging point with an art knife, and then put a 2cm thick long wood lath on the upper hole of the hanger to make the screw pass through the gypsum board and enter the wooden lath, so as to increase the stress area.
- Marble wall: for the whole marble slab, the glass drill should be used for drilling. After drilling, the expansion screw can be installed until it is tightened. For patterned marble, drilling should be done with great care.
TV Weight and Size
Generally speaking, the size and weight of a TV set go hand in hand. The bigger the TV, the heavier it is. Each bracket has a maximum loading range and VESA standard. As long as your monitor is within the specified range, the bracket can easily bear the weight of the TV.
For the fixed bracket, you need to make sure the TV is wider than the bracket, otherwise it will hang on both sides. Curve TV may need a special installation to offset the edge distance, so be sure to check the manufacturer’s recommendations before installation.
If you have questions, be sure to follow the instructions for the TV bracket to determine the weight compatibility of the TV installation. Specifications should be written in the manual or you can check our website for details about your model.
