What makes one TV wall mount better than another? Don't they all have the same function? Actually, it all depends on how much freedom of movement you want your TV to have.
One thing's for sure, at Fillion Électronique you'll find a wide range of wall mounts that fit TVs of all sizes for every room. We've put together this little buying guide to help you find the one that best suits your needs.
Fixed, tilting or full swing: choose the ideal type of wall mount for your TV
TV wall mounts come in three main forms: fixed, tilting, or full swing. You'll need to choose a type of mount based on where your TV is located in the room and how much freedom of motion you want.
Fixed wall mount
The fixed wall mount is right for you if you already know the exact location, angle and height of your TV, and you're sure you'll never have to move it. Fixed mounts are often among the cheapest, so they're ideal for somewhat tighter budgets.
Tilting wall mount
The tilting wall mount, as the name implies, is designed to be tilted as needed, giving you more viewing angle freedom. If you know that your TV will be placed above eye level (above a fireplace, for example), we recommend that you choose a tilt mount. This will also make it easier for you to adjust the position of the TV to avoid undesirable light reflections.
Full swing wall mount
Last but not least, the full swing wall mount offers the greatest freedom of motion. It's the perfect option for you if you plan to watch TV from more than one different location in the room, if you want to get rid of glare for good, or if you need lots of space behind the TV and easy access for wiring.
Choose your wall mount based on the VESA protocol
The VESA interface standard is the distance in millimetres between the four mounting holes on the back of your TV. This distance is displayed as "horizontal distance x vertical distance".
Before choosing a compatible wall mount, it is very important to note the VESA dimensions of your TV. You can find this information in the TV's instruction manual or by measuring the distance between the holes yourself.
Warning! It is equally important to know the weight of your TV and compare it to the maximum weight supported by the wall mount. With all this information in hand, finding a suitable wall mount will be easy.
Make sure you have the right tools or assistance for a properly installed wall mount
Installing a TV wall mount is usually fairly simple, provided you have the right tools: you will need a drill, stud detectors, a level and a screwdriver.
If you aren't comfortable installing it yourself, don't hesitate to call in an expert installer: we can install your TV wall mount for you if it was purchased from us. This will ensure that you have a solid and straight support.
