Several hundred flat screen ceiling mount manufacturers exist around the world. Some of these products aren’t the best and safest for your TV mounting requirements. You will need to look for something that is strong enough to hold an extremely large flat screen LCD TV. If you take an eighteen-hundred-dollar TV set and invest fifty dollars in a mounting for it, the result could be catastrophic if the cheap metal gives out and your big-screen falls to the floor we mount your tvs.
Ceiling mounts are systems in themselves. Each piece must be of high quality to provide the support that flat screens need to withstand the weight and remain in the air. The best way to ensure your peace ofmind and safety is to invest an additional two to three hundred bucks on a quality ceiling mount, rather than having to replace it after an incident.
Optional support brackets can be installed into your attic to help distribute the weight and prevent premature support failures. These machined brackets will typically cost between $50 and $100, but they will give your flat screen the extra support it needs. As the walls are down, you can install new cabling without having to repair or tear them up.
