TV Tips for Renovations and New-Build Projects
Consider the following "TV Tips" when renovating your property or when building a new hotel.
Tip #1 - Wall-Mount Your Televisions for Safety and Other Benefits
Child Safety - Wall-mounted televisions are secured out of a child's reach, which prevents "TV tip-over".
Anti-Theft - Wall-mounts secure your asset to the wall, without permanent damage to your furniture.
Space Savings - Wall-mounted TVs free-up your surface-space for other uses.
Esthetics - Wall-mounted TVs look great and have fewer exposed wires.
Reusability - High quality brackets can be reused for your next TV upgrade.
Tip #2 - Avoid Using Extension Arm Brackets
Extension Arm brackets are NOT SAFE FOR HOTELS. When the arm is extended out from the wall, the weight of the television exerts excessive pressure on the bracket and the wall to which it is mounted. Furthermore, wires are more likely to be exposed and children may tug on the wires, the arm, or the TV in a number of unforeseen circumstances, causing the arm, bracket or wall to undergo more stress than designed to handle. When these arm brackets fail, they cause damage to your televisions, walls, furniture, and can cause injury to your guests and their children.
In cases when you must use this type of bracket for your project, please carefully consider the placement of the bracket/television from an accessibility and stability perspective.
Tip #3 - Place the Power and Video Source Behind the TV
Tip #4 - Consider Using Outlets with USB Recepticles
USB Ports have become widely used for many purposes other than just charging your phone. Today, many devices use USB ports for power as well. Consider future-proofing your hotel by adding power outlets with USB receptacles for those future devices that may use USB, instead of standard power outlets.
