New York —
OmniMount came to Manhattan last week to display its new LED series of slim-profile mounting solutions to the press.
The three mounts in the line are built from aircraftgrade cables and aluminum alloy and feature extremely thin profiles.
Two of the mounts feature the company’s proprietary Suspension System technology which secures a panel via a cable suspension similar to the way a painting hangs on a wall.
The LEDW60 and LEDW120’s Suspension System design features Thermalpolyrubber (similar to the sole of a tennis shoe) grips to minimize panel shifting and allow simple, one-touch leveling. Once the TV is mounted, the built-in kickstand supports the flat panel base away from the wall for wiring and maintenance.
The LEDW60 supports flat panels from 23 inches to 55 inches up to 60 pounds, and the LEDW120 supports 42-inch to 75-inch panels up to 120 pounds. While the mounts were designed for lighter-weight LED TVs, OmniMount’s general manager, visual display/new product development Mike Townsend told TWICE, the mounts are rated to hold loads at least four times their published rating without fail, making them suitable for most LCD and plasma models on the market.
The top-of-line LEDP75 is a full-motion mount built to fit panels up to 75 pounds and features Dual-Mode Installation for low profile on-wall mounting or flush in-wall mounting. The ability to be installed on-wall or in-wall is a direct result of the mount being designed with its own housing for a self-contained solution, Townsend said.
Mounted on wall, the mount is fully enclosed in the casing. Mounted in wall, the casing acts as a recessed box and allows for a completely flush installation. The arm nests completely inside the casing to keep on-wall mounting profiles to a minimum.
The LEDP75 also offers ArmGlide, allowing for 11.35 inches of lateral arm travel by sliding the arm side to side.
It features a brushed and anodized extruded aluminum finish, and the casing surfaces are paintable.
OmniMount also stressed the green appeal of the new suspension mounts, since they use significantly less materials than traditional arm mounts and are packaged in recycled packaging materials.
The LEDP75, LEDW120 and LEDW60 are offered at a suggested retail of $249, $149 and $99.95 respectively. They are available now.
