Know how to hang a TV on the wall, it is very important for a variety of categories of television owners. We will figure it out how to make the fastening of televisions of 49 inches and other sizes. It is also necessary to pay attention to the features of the installation on the walls of aerated concrete and foam blocks, from other materials.
Pros and Minuses of Montage
Just to buy a telephoneial is not enough – it’s important how to place it. But install it on a regular stand, on a regular end or on the table is not too reasonable. Any impetus – and no expensive device flies on the floor. If you fix the TV on the wall, then the problem is solved. There is no longer that random shocks are not terrible, there will be special efforts, if someone decides consciously damage the technique.
Wall-mounted installation implies usually mounting the TV exactly opposite the place where it is going to watch. This is the most comfortable and practical solution, and with emotional, and from a physiological point of view. Virtually any flat-screen model can be hung on the wall. Even if the attachments are not included in the delivery set, they will not be difficult to acquire additionally.
An important advantage can also be relevant to saving places, and the lack of need to buy any supports, and an increased aesthetics of the wall location.
It is necessary to take into account that install the TV on the wall is more complicated than the stand. If you do not work yourself to drill the desired holes, you will have to pay for third-party services. And to resort to these services accounted for quite often. Especially if the TV is very heavy and large. Wall mount is also criticized for:
- probability to make mistakes;
- the need to strengthen the fastening where vibration can manifest itself;
- difficulty access to the rear panel of the TV;
- need to mount stands for additional equipment (consoles, players, consoles);
- The fact that the outlet will have to be transferred to the TV, or the TV to put strictly near the outlet;
- Difficulties with fitting cable in the interior.
Which height hang?
The main thing here is to avoid extremes. Placing the TV near the ceiling itself or in the upper third of the wall simply inconvenient. We will have to constantly strain the neck, and it is harmful to health and can even lead to dizziness, muscle spasms. However, to put the TV close to the floor is also not good – an unnatural posture and again discomfort, harmful to health. Therefore, it is better to look for some kind of average accommodation, focusing on generally accepted standards.
Be sure to take into account the features of the device itself. Rounded panels are poorly fixed on the wall, as rounded corners can perform. Flat technique to hang almost always and at any height.
The ranges of the distance to the audience in the bedroom and in the hall, as well as in the working offices are always completely the same, because they are determined by the medical person. Calculation usually goes by multiplying a diagonal permission coefficient.
The height of the installation of the TV is calculated by the conditioned direct, departing from the eye of the viewer. At the same time choose not only a good location, but also an attractive pose. The optimal height between the floor and the lower edge of the screen from a medical point of view is considered 75 cm. Any other large TV must be positioned at a distance of 175 cm from the user.
Optimally, if at the level of the observer’s eye is the centerpoint of the screen. But it is not located in the geometric center, but at 1/3 level from the bottom line. Consider the height of furniture. If you look at the screen to be from different points, take the middle height, taking into account the seated spectators. Even a large TV is preferably at an altitude of 1.5 m – and additionally requires consoles, other techniques.
Some nuances are and when placed in separate rooms. Living rooms or halls with classic height sofas imply a TV mounting at 70 – 175 cm. But if the living room is drawn up with a Japanese flavor – the installation height can be reduced to 10 – 15 cm. If there is no single stylist, and it is planned to invite guests with different heights, you must use a movable bracket. The bedroom will have to pay attention to the size of the room and the location of the beds, on their height.
It must be borne in mind that the TFT panels are especially sensitive to vertical placement. With a low location, contrast will grow, however, the image will darken. If you put the device high, the screen will be excessively evilcing. Both in small and in very large bedrooms a very modern solution turns out to be placed the TV above the headboard. In the kitchen, the situation is different.
There have to take into account not only the height of the installation of the device, but also its placement in relation to heat sources. Even the most reliable TVs from a similar location to plates, sinks and heating radiators will suffer. If we are talking about a large kitchen-dining room, then you need to pay attention already to the distance from the dining area, and to the height of the furniture.
In any case, you will have to follow the general rules of television orientation in relation to viewers. And also avoid their installation where there will be a strong illumination from the window.
In the children’s rooms it is recommended to take into account the age of children and their growth. But also an important role is played by mobility factor. It is necessary to provide a convenient view from anywhere from where they can watch TV. Regardless of the room, there are strict rules:
- You can not follow the head when viewing;
- The distance to the screen is the farther than the larger diagonal;
- The main area of viewing should not be located on the side of the desktop.
Regardless of whether it is about a large flat or small kinescope TV, the optimal distance should be 2 or 3 full diagonals. But it is important to take into account the permission. What it is higher, the closer, with other things being equal, you can sit, ignoring individual points and providing good viewing. Before the bed or sofa, the distance should be at least:
- 1.9 m with a diagonal of 32 inches;
- 2.4 m at 40 inches;
- 2.8 m with a diagonal of 49 inches;
- 3.27 m at 55 inches;
- 4.17 m for 70-inch TV.
How to choose bracket?
The simplest attachments are designed exclusively on vertical hanging. More complex systems make it possible to tilt and twist the TV in the desired side. Very important feature – matching the mass of the telephone and load capacity of the bracket. But not a complete, and with a reserve at least 20%. This will allow you to guarantee the long service and increase the resistance in situations where the load grows significantly.
Brackets are usually calculated under certain diagonals. It is only necessary to understand that if we are talking about a diagonal of a kinescope TV, you can hang a larger crystal screen on the same fastener. But the reverse replacement for obvious reasons is impossible. It is very important to ensure that the gaps between the standard fasteners of the TVs and the holes on the brackets coincided.
It is necessary to pay attention to the standard VESA, and on the wall fixation area – the higher, the more serious there may be a load.
Even in the 2020s, it is often necessary to install kinescopic TV. For them, need a shelf brackets. Similar models produce for modern thin devices. The functions of rotation and tilt are needed not to all consumers, and those who want to just be aware of news and weather reports, quite a simple fixed solution. More complex supports will fit predominantly to filmans and other people who want to “squeeze” from their technology maximum opportunities.
In some cases, it is also important:
- external closing parts;
- circular rotation mode (useful if the TV is designed to show vertical pictures);
- Electric drives, remotely controlled;
- Production quality design.
How to hang?
Almost all attachments are designed to be installed with their own hands, and then suspend the sizes and mass of the TV, so you should not be afraid of this procedure. Typically use two parts: one block is attached on the back of the TV, and the other is installed on the wall. Then it will be necessary to sharpen them exactly using grooves or other parts. How to do it, just say in the instructions. Universal brackets put this way:
- join the external block to the panel using regular or exactly replacing their bolts;
- Place the position of the device on the wall, controlling the line in the level;
- noted where fasteners will be located (the brackets are put to the surface to be made close to the surface, and the gaps would be excluded);
- additionally check all in terms of level;
- mark attachment points;
- drill them;
- Mount the wall part of the bracket;
- Install TV Himself.
But the rules allow you to hang small flat TVs much easier. They will not require additional devices. On the turnover of the panels are provided. They are cling to pre-screwed into the wall bolts. It is only necessary to measure everything thoroughly and carefully calculate the necessary load.
However, it is better to leave such a solution for an extreme case. A dense fit to the wall will not allow to change the position as needed. Ventilation problems may occur. It will not be possible to hide behind the TV connection point and wire.
The conclusion is obvious – if there is no required grooves or their use is not provided for by the instruction, this is better not to use the installation scheme.
Nuances Installation for different walls
In this case, it almost does not matter whether it is about walls from reinforced concrete blocks in a panel house or from a foam concrete or foam concrete. In any case, they are fixed very difficult to fix on them, even if the wall is made of externally passioned foam blocks. Building materials manufacturers do not guarantee that the installation will pass without problems. A special dowel on a gas concrete, distinguished by a special design may be a good solution. There are 2 of its variant – from metal or from plastic; Metal type happens with wide spirals, and sometimes in a sleeve format, which is long covered with teeth.
Under the dowel must be properly drilled hole. He is drilled, which is 1 mm already the dowel himself. At the same time, the minimum diameter – 2 mm – must be observed strictly. On the perforator you need to turn off the blow.
However, professionals advise not to resort to this method, but apply drill.
Installation can be carried out on the partitions themselves. Also, they are sometimes conducted in special shelves or using brackets.
IMPORTANT: Do not mount the technique heavier than 30 kg. Mostly install TVs on the butterfly dowels.
Carriage items are:
- steel pipes;
- Food and other metal designed for certain loads.
Large models will have to strengthen. To do this, create a robust frame and apply a fortified GLC. Plastic dowels can not be applied. Only Self-Self Dowels should go to the move. The largest TV is installed in arches or niches; An alternative can be fastening through plasterboard on concrete or brick. If the distance between plasterboard and overhaul is more than 10 cm, it is necessary to apply mortgage parts.
In this case, you can use the already proven decision – bracket. Accession to a thin wall is made by long bolts. Places for them are selected by the traditional method. You can also use P-shaped profiles (it is easy to use, but such a decision is not suitable for rooms where there are children or pets). Heavyweight TV models are attached to pairs of square profiles.
From fragile materials
In this case, long bolts with wide washers usually go into move. The gas-concrete partition is usually drilled through. Conducted through holes bolts from the opposite side screw off nuts. On the walls of porous bricks, it is advisable to mount the TV with chemical anchors. They are reliable enough and allow to fix pretty heavy things.
Sometimes there is a need to hang the TV on the lining. Simple self-drawing here can not do. But very help reliable anchors with petals. Among them it is necessary to choose those that have the best effort to break. You can also pierce material and in other ways, ensuring the reliability of the connection. The mansion is the installation on the puzzle plate.
To install heavy TV on it it is necessary to apply an anchor with double sleeves. You can also put into the course of universal plastic or spacer dowels.
It is worth considering that the fastening to the puzzle in the way, optimal for thick concrete is not allowed. Amateur Mounting Method – On Bugs. For their retention, alabaster is used, and therefore only work with one hole at the same time.
We must immediately think if there will be a larger diagonal technique in the future. Then you have to use brackets and other fasteners designed for varying the connecting sizes and loads. Installation marking can be made not only with a pencil, but also a marker. When drilling, it is also advisable to apply a dust collector that will allow working comfortable. If the bolts are too long, to take together with them a few pucks so that everything is assembled as it should.
If possible, you need to choose concrete or strong brick reference sites. On only low-size TVs need to hang on drywall. If it is decided to mount the TVs without a bracket, you can use standard furniture “ears”. Installation lead the most tightly to save a useful place (but without violation of ventilation and problems with wire laying). Alternative solution – use of 4 corners of steel or aluminum.
Beautiful examples in the interior
There are a lot of solutions that allow you to put the TV is elegant.
- One of these options is a simple TV in a black frame on a blue background. Symmetric windows on two sides of the same wall will only improve the impression.
- However, the TV party will look pretty also on the background of a bleached brick wall. Symmetry in this embodiment can be provided with cabinets.
- However, this does not mean that other ways to present the TV is beautiful. Very attractive can look, for example, on the background of a saturated raspberry area of the wall. Simple white surface (classic) is also sometimes useful.
Other options may be as follows:
- Accommodation on a woody and yellow background (bricks) surrounded by white walls and a handling, with a chandelier of an unusual shape;
- Installation on the panel attached to the usual log walls;
- TV on a light yellow wall over the fireplace surrounded by paintings;
- Another option above the fireplace on a simple light wall.
You can also look at other solutions, such as:
- TV on wall panels of wood, plastic or leather;
- Leveling of a dark dissony spot using an emphasis wall;
- watching a TV receiver with pictures or photographs in the subtle framework;
- Using bas-reliefs;
- connection of the plasma panel section with the padlies hanging;
- Installation in plasterboard niche.
