The Peerless-AV SmartMount XT series of flat-panel TV mounts in articulating, tilt and flat styles is designed to achieve expert professional mounting in a fraction of the time, according to the company.
The line of pre-assembled, one-piece mounts that can be affixed to walls by a single professional installer or integrator now provides post-installation height adjustments on flat, tilt mount, and articulating and improved cable housing on articulating mounts to render a clean finish.
“The functionality and user friendliness of the SmartMount XT line make the job easier for professional installers and integrators,” said Erin Longbottom, product manager for Peerless-AV. “They save time on installations, which saves them money.”
SmartMount XT products represent the next wave of innovative wall mounting solutions and carry Peerless-AV’s signature low-profile design that anchors displays in certain models as close as 1.2 inches to the wall.
SmartMount XT models shorten installation time because a single installer can hang the mount. The tilt and flat mounts can be secured to a wall with as few as four screws. Articulating mounts come in single-stud or double-stud wall plate varieties; for heavier televisions, a dual-arm, double-stud wall plate is available. Displays attached to universal adapter brackets are locked in place with securement screws.
The articulating models now include compartments to house cabling and, for mounts carrying heavier displays, a wall plate knock-out for an in-wall cabling accessory. The new features, along with open wall architecture in tilt and flat models, expand the line’s cabling and wiring options and keep work areas organized.
Both the tilt and articulating models carry the One-Touch tilt feature, enabling correction of viewing angles by +15/-5 degrees without using tools. An improved hinge on the tilt mount eliminates the need for ratchet handle adjusting. Displays on articulating mounts can be rotated to a landscape or portrait orientation; those on flat and tilt mounts can be adjusted vertically by up to an inch and horizontally, up to 13 inches. This allows post-installation leveling and shifting, without having to remove the display.
Suitable for corporate and residential installations, the SmartMount XT line is available exclusively through the Peerless-AV Partners Program, whose members earn the privilege of offering premium products to their customers.
