When you go to purchase a TV mount,

what factors should you consider?

If you want to mount your new TV on the wall, there are a few things that you should take into consideration. But what are the most important considerations and how do you choose the best TV mount for your TV?
We have made a list of the most important points to help make it as easy as possible for you. We have also included a few tips for neatly concealing all of your peripheral equipment and cables.

Things to think about

  1. Screen size of your TV
  2. VESA
  3. Weight
  4. Cable management 
  5. Smart AV accessories

1. Screen size of your TV

The size of your TV screen determine which TV mount you should purchase. If you do not know the size of your TV, it is indicated on the back of your TV as part of the model number. You can also measure the size yourself. Measure the distance diagonally between the corners of the screen, not including the frame around it. If you measure the screen in centimetres, divide this number by 2.54 to calculate the size in inches.

2. VESA

VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association) is a universal size designation used by most TV and wall-mount manufacturers. VESA indicates the distance between the mounting points at the back of the TV. A TV mount is installed using these mounting points, for example. Vogel's supplies all of the mounting materials you need with each TV mount.

3. Weight

TVs are getting lighter, making it easier to install your TV on a TV wall mount. Always be sure to check the maximum weight that the mount is able to support. This will ensure that your TV stays firmly and safely mounted on the wall. This information is always clearly stated in the product information or on the TV mount packaging.

4. Cable management

Vogel's TV mounts are designed to conceal cables optimally. Cables that run from the TV to other equipment, sockets and/or cable connections via the mount are best concealed using a cable cover. Vogel’s offers cable covers in a variety of colours and sizes. Click here to view Vogel’s product range
