What TV Wall Mount Do I Need And Why?

As TV technology gets better, we can all enjoy high quality, HD TV, sports, and movie action like never before. But clearer, sharper, and brighter pictures usually go hand in hand with bigger TV screens. So if space is at a premium in your home, an adjustable TV wall mount can give you the best viewing position and help reclaim some square footage in your front room.

Why would I need a wall mount?

If you’re thinking about upgrading to a large or curved screen TV, then spare a thought for how you’re going to watch it. TV stands generally look great but don’t offer any options for movement, so the TV stays in one position all the time. If you’re making a chunky investment in a new TV, why not give yourself the chance to enjoy a premium viewing experience?

If you’re still undecided, choosing a wall mount for your TV can help you in more ways than one. Firstly, it will give you—and everyone watching—the best viewing position for your particular TV while reducing reflections and glare from windows or lights.

It’ll also free up precious floor space to give your room a sleek, modern finish at the same time. And, because it’s a large screen TV, a wall mount will prevent any bumps, knocks, or child tipping accidents by keeping it safely out of harm’s way.

Which type of wall mount should I use?

There are three types of wall mount we recommend for any installation from wall mount specialists, Sanus. Between them, there’s a model compatible with your TV, your home, and your own viewing needs. Here’s an overview of each so you can see which one suits you.

Full-Motion Mounts

The most adjustable option, full-motion mounts allow you to tilt, swivel, extend, and level your TV for the best viewing angle from anywhere in the room.

• Three models

• Suits TVs up to 90” with a maximum weight of 79kg

• Compatible with curved and flat-screen TVs

• Extends 25” / swivels 180˚ / tilts 20˚

Tilting Mounts

Tilting mounts work best when fixed slightly higher up the wall when their tilt will help to eliminate reflections and light glare from the screen.

• Three models

• Suits TVs of 90”+ with a maximum weight of 79kg

• Compatible with curved (2 models only) and flat-screen TVs

• Tilts 16˚

Fixed Mounts

When you already know your ideal viewing position and angle, a fixed mount will help position your TV so it’s almost completely flush to your wall.
