Types of Wall Mounts
When shopping for a wall mount, keep in mind that they fall into three general categories: flat mounts, tilt mounts and swivel mounts.
Flat mounts, also known as low-profile mounts, live up to the name as they are the thinnest type of wall mount available. They are typically one inch in depth, no more than two inches at the most, allowing the television to sit flush with the wall. This type of mount is static, with no swivel or tilting ability at all.
Tilt mounts allow the television to be adjusted either forwards or backwards. To accommodate movement, the mount extends outward from the wall. Some types of tilting wall mounts are lockable at a number of different angles.
Swivel mounts move from side to side in addition to up and down. There are a variety of swivel mount designs, including ones with one and two arms.
A wide selection of specialty mounts is also available. While many specialty TV wall mounts are intended for industrial and commercial environments, a specialty TV wall mount can be particularly useful when designing and planning a home theater.
