A Good, Better, Best Guide to Mounting & Enclosure Systems

Premier Mounts INW-AM325

Mounts and enclosures: they’re more than your average accessory. In fact, modern custom home projects could not function without them. Flat-panel video displays and projectors depend on them, literally, and they just might help increase margins and functionality on projects of just about any scale. These days it seems like mounts and enclosures can fit any functional requirement of an installation, and any budget.

In a product category where stability, security, and rigidity are virtues, there is an increasing amount of motion. Offerings like articulating arms, full tilts, swivel mounts, and even remote motorization are available alongside retractable and recessed in-wall enclosure options.

In the mounting market, automation has been a growing trend in recent years. OmniMount’s new motorized cantilever mount is a fully featured product equipped with remote control power. It also offers automatic wall detection functionality and is compatible with virtually all brands of 37- and 52- inch flat panels.

In its Good, Better, Best lineup, OmniMount is not comparing apples to apples with its products. Instead, Kimberly Fabiano, OmniMount brand manager, is showcasing the company’s diverse offerings: “The latest and greatest is a motorized cantilever, but you can still get a really great product with a full-featured traditional cantilever, and if you need something a little smaller, we have an affordable, lightweight solution as well.”

Chief Manufacturing is also emphasizing the convenience of motorization in its new suite of mounts. Chief debuted an exciting lineup of motion mounting products at CEDIA EXPO this year.

Meanwhile, the swing-out motion continues with Premier Mounts. Designed for use with company’s most popular universal flat-panel TV mounts, Premier Mounts’ “Best” product in this guide is the INW-AM325 with the AM250, a recess mount for AM250 and AM3 Swingout Arms with cable routing through knockouts and drop-in power/signal box for headache-free wiring.

BUSINESS TRENDS
It appears that the recession forecasts are indeed coming true. U.S. Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson recently admitted that the economy is facing a decline at the moment but hoped for a recovery later in the year. Meanwhile, the Federal Reserve intervened to rescue Bear Stearns, providing $30 billion in emergency support while two other Wall Street banks reported reduced profits. At the same time, the housing market is still pinched by the mortgage crisis.

How this relates to the CEDIA channel is up for debate. The top one percent is usually not tremendously affected, but the home systems installer may find it difficult to contract new-home build projects of scale. Instead, many dealers are reporting new opportunities for retrofit projects with existing clients. In this sense, customization has good potential for margin building. As video display prices drop, mounting accessories are a good upgrade possibility and allow for more exciting placement options in the home.

There are low-profile and hidden electronics at Sanus Systems, especially in the company’s VisionMount low-profile flat-panel TV wall mount line. Their “Best” product, the VisionMount LL22, fits large flat panels between 30 to 60 inches and mounts the display just 1.5 inches from the wall for a totally flush appearance. It also offers seamless post-installation height and leveling adjustments, while its lateral shift allows a TV to slide left and right for ideal display placement, even with off-center studs. It will be available July 2008.

K2 Mounts Underbed Lift

The demands on flat-panel mounts have increased significantly in the past year as flatpanel displays and applications continue to evolve. From unusual kitchen applications to weatherproof installations, versatility is key.

While customers used to be satisfied with wall mounting and flat-panel enclosure solutions that were universal, products for modern business must also be easy to install and save labor time, especially in large-scale or complicated projects.

Video Mount Products, based in Maryland, is another manufacturer with a mandate for innovation. Its “Better” product, the LCD-MIDFT is a universal mid-size flat-panel flush mount with tilt. Mounting rails adjust to accommodate monitors with mounting holes up to VESA 400 x 200. Additionally, it accommodates a double-gang box.

The SA750PU from Peerless Mounts fits 32- to 50-inch LCD and plasma screens, and its double-stud mount offers adjustability features for better viewing angles. It also features U-groove channels for sleek cable management.

K2 Mounts is also shipping a new universal mounting system for the custom installation channel. Its K2-A2-S, K3-A2-S, and K4-A1-S are designed for flat-panel TVs of varying sizes with individual design and construction. The K2-A2-S is designed specifically for smaller plasma and LCD TVs ranging in size from 13 to 30 inches, or a maximum weight of 35 pounds, The K3-A2-S is for larger sets between 32 and 45 inches with a maximum weight of 130 pounds. The K4-A1-S, the largest flat-panel mount the company has ever offered with an articulating arm, is best suited for 45- to 60-inch displays up to 198 pounds.

VALUE-ADDED, EVERY DAY
How can mounts help installers add value on a day-to-day basis? This is where a “Good, Better, Best” approach helps out, by asking dealers to consider cost implications. There is value to bring with each artfully executed integration project. The mounting accessory fully complements the value-added mission. B-Tech BT8000/51 is a universal large wall -mount available for $189.95 MSRP. It sits only 1.5 inches from the wall and mounts both VESA and non-VESA screens at more than 55 inches. The unique mount allows for 90 degree rotation, so horizontal maximum can be 500mm or 970mm, while the vertical maximum can be 970mm or 500mm respectively, depending on mounting requirements. It also allows for portrait or landscape mounting of the screen.

Middle Atlantic Products AXS

Because it values the overall success of the integrated system, Middle Atlantic Products has introduced new Duct Cool Series ventilation system. The Duct Cool vent system is designed to extract heated air quickly and more quietly from confined spaces such as a closet, millwork opening, cabinet, or enclosure. The Duct Cool vent system fan can also be mounted remotely without significant loss of performance. A temperature probe and thermostatic control save energy by only running the system when needed.

ITS Enclosures is another company with heat on its mind. Its ViewStation Array LCD display technology with thermal management for temperature regulation, also has content/device management and is environmentally sealed. Other features include integrated air movement and lockable, secure construction.
