HDTV owners who want to save space on their home entertainment centers have a sleek new option for wall-mounting their HDTV, as Peerless Industries has unveiled a mount that’s just 0.4 inches thick.
Called the Slimline ultra-thin mount, this unit is being billed as the world’s thinnest mount, as it brings a screen closer to the wall than any similar product currently available. For a nice size comparison, check out this photo of the Slimline ultra-thin mount next to a dime:
The new Slimline ultra-thin universal mounts position flat-panel HDTVs just 0.4 inches from the wall, barely the thickness of a CD case. The mount was designed for the Hitachi 1.5 inch ultra-thin TVs, but the Slimline mount also accommodates any new ultra-slim TV on the horizon and any flat-panel LCD or plasma HDTV up to 150 pounds (the Slimline mount has a 150 lb. UL-tested load capacity).
Peerless’ Slimline ultra-thin mounts include three universal sizes for TVs up to 60 inches. The line is complemented by an in-wall A/V accessory box to allow electrical outlets, cables and plugs, power conditioners, etc., to nest neatly behind the mount’s 0.4-inch profile. For concrete, brick or other surfaces where internal cable management isn’t an option, Peerless offers an on-the-wall cable management system and shelving units to hold A/V components.
The universal ultra-slim mounts have horizontal and vertical screen positioning adjustments and an industrial-strength Velcro latching system for easy and secure installation. Once the mount is installed, simply press the TV down to engage the Velcro latching system to keep the HDTV from slipping out of position.
