Buying a TV Wall Bracket by VESA Sizes

Jul 31, 2008
If you've recently purchased a large LCD or Plasma Screen Television, you have probably looked into getting a TV Wall Bracket. After all this is the advantage of having a slim line large panel screen.

To mount your TV, you require knowing your VESA size on the back of the TV. VESA sizes are as follows. VESA 75 have holes 75mm apart in a square. VESA 100 have holes 100mm apart in a square. Larger screens usually have VESA 200, these are 200mm apart offering greater support of the weight of the TV.

To mount your TV using a TV Wall Bracket, you'll need to know which VESA standard it supports.

A wall bracket is screwed directly into these holes, the main support for the bracket is mounted onto the wall. It is very important if your mounting your TV onto a plasterboard wall, make sure you are on one of the studs running behind.

It is recommended that you mount your TV properly, leaving at least 16mm behind for air circulation. This is to ensure that the elements in your TV last longer.

Majority of today's TV wall brackets will automatically hold your TV the required distance away from the wall, so don't worry!

One other alternative, if you are not sure on the position for your TV, a cantilever wall bracket may solve your problem. The cantilever wall bracket allows you to tilt, turn and extend your TV from the wall allowing you to optimise your viewing angles.

If you want to mount your TV in the corner of the room, This is about the easiest option for you. Several models available with a universal VESA mount attached. Allowing to fix TV's from 10 inches to 60 inches in size, extends up to 30 inches from the wall.

Some TV's today don't follow the standard on VESA sizes, and may be in between most VESA brackets available. The option you have is the universal wall bracket, these cover all sizes between the VESA sizes. One other advantage with the universal brackets are that they cover a range of screen sizes allowing you to change your TV in the future and not changing your bracket. Saving you those extra pounds!

The wall mounts usually come in 2 colours to match today's TV colours, Black and Silver. Most brackets are available in both colours, allowing your mount not to look out of place.

If you are not confident on fitting your TV with a TV wall bracket, it is recommended that you pay that extra and get a installer to get this done for you. The VESA sizes are extremely helpful for them, knowing that the brackets will guarantee to fit. Dispersing the weight, efficiently.

Now you can get the right TV wall bracket for your TV, you have no need to worry about your new TV falling from the wall.

Remember... check the back of your LCD or plasma television for the correct VESA and talk to a professional if you are unsure!
