NEW YORK — Although outdoor TVs haven’t yet reached mainstream status for consumers, those who do have them may seek extra-rugged mounting solutions that won’t degrade from the weather.
These mounts are all designed to withstand weather and corrosion to some level, including one that pledges protection during hurricane-force winds.
The truss-suspended outdoor mount from Premier Mounts is weather and corrosion resistant, as well as galvanized for heavy salt air environments. It’s wind rated for up to 90 mph, according to the company, and can be mounted in four fixed-tilt positions. The mount, which features a removable back cover, can be used with 6-, 8- or 10-inch-wide I-beams.
SunBriteTV’s SB-WM46 outdoor locking articulating wall mount is engineered to be compatible with the company’s 32-, 46-, 47-, 55- and 65-inch landscape-orientation outdoor TVs. The weatherproof mount, which is made of UV powder-coated steel, features 10 degrees of display tilt capability; an optional security kit covers all vulnerable mounting points from tampering, said the company. The mount measures 4.36 inches deep when collapsed. It extends up to 17.3 inches and enables the TV to tilt up to 10 degrees. Suggested retail is $465.
Peerless-AV’s outdoor universal flat wall mount, designed for displays measuring 42 to 55 inches and up to 150 pounds, features a corrosion resistant ECoat finish and plated hardware. It has the company’s Hook-and- Hang design, as well as an open wall plate that provides wall access while keeping the display 1.77 inches from the wall. The mount features a list price of $304.
