TV brackets and chimney breasts

We noticed this question on on AV forums the other day and thought it a worthwhile question worth answering in case other people were wondering the same.


 – I am getting a LCD soon, and if possible want to put it on the wall to free up some space in my bedroom.

My question is that the only “wall” it can go on is the chimney breast – is this safe/legal to do?

The LCD TV will be a 23″ or a 26″ I want a wall bracket that will “come” off the wall to allow tilt and sideways movement for better viewing, and then fold back onto the wall so the TV will be against the wall when not in use.

please help (and any recommendations on types and where to get a wall bracket please)”

The answer to the question is undoubtledly, yes. It is safe to mount plasma on a chimney breast wall. And a perfect plasma bracket to use would be a cantilever plasma bracket so that you can extend and then fold the bracket back into to be almost flush against the wall when not in use. When it is in use, you will be able to tilt it downwards for optimum viewing pleasure. This model here suits 23 – 30 inch screens.

What does cantilever mean?

According to Wikipedia. What makes a cantilever a cantilever is that it is “supported by only one end”. The beam supports the weight which is “resisted by moment and shear stress”

Essentially, cantilever structures “allows for overhanging without having to use external braces”.
A cantilever is a beam supported on only one end. The beam carries the load to the “support where it is resisted by moment and shear stress”. Cantilever works in the opposite way to beams supported by lintel systems because a beam supported in this way is supported at “both ends with loads applied between the supports.”

What is a cantilever TV bracket?
Cantilever LCD brackets and cantilever plasma TV brackets allow you to position your TV at virtually any angle. A cantilever bracket has two main movements: swing out and fold back. Most cantilever brackets also swivel. Cantilever brackets are particularly useful if your room isn’t uniform, or if you are looking to mount a plasma TV in an alcove or corner.

We visited ‘’ for a fuller description an they said that cantilever means:
any rigid structural member projecting from a vertical support, esp. one in which the projection is great in relation to the depth, so that the upper part is in tension and the lower part in compression”.

Customer question
We have been asked before about brackets suitable for the popular Sony Bravia LCDs. One person in particular was interested in a bracket with an ‘arm’ which extends and swivels because they were having difficulty finding one which cost less than £300. Well, we have a suitable and cost effective solution.

At under £100 the PROFESSIONAL SERIES Aluminium Full Cantilever bracket is a snip!

The LCD or Plasma TV is mounted evenly on the wall, and often mounted in a slight tilted fashion (classically downwards) or on occasions a bracket that keeps the TV turned away from wall (frequently known as cantilever arm brackets), these modes of mounting often relies on the structure of the room plus on the client’s way of interior decoration and on the budget.

TV Accessories

It’s better to think ahead about the Scart, HDMI and Mains Cables because their un wanted presence right with the elegant TV Bracket or Wall Mount will ruin the look and feel of these stylish items. The optimal option is to embed the wires into the wall to avoid their undue space capture, but this is not always feasible for all the customers. For the situation like this we have made variety of cable tidy, cable trunking and wireless scart to resolve this very issue. The Vogels EVO 6000 Column Systems are best known among the audio devotees not only because EVO6000 system can cover the cables but it does incorporate shelves with the system additionally.
