Wall Mounting Advice

Mount Functions

There are three basic TV Mount options: Flat, Tilting and Multi Position.


Choose a Flat TV Mount if you just want to get your screen up on the wall and will be viewing at or around eye level.


Choose a mount that tilts if you are positioning your screen above eye level, or near to a light source such as a window – tilting the screen is a great way to reduce or avoid light glare and reflections.

Multi Position

Sometimes referred to as Full Motion or Articulated, these mounts enable you to push your screen flat against the wall and also pull it away from the wall and adjust to view from any angle. This is great for open plan living, large spaces, or setting a TV up in a corner.

VESA Explained

VESA is a term that we use commonly when referring to our TV wall mounts and some of our TV stands. It refers to the rectangular pattern of mounting holes on the back of almost all TVs, and it’s the easiest way to identify whether your TV is compatible with a bracket. Your TV’s VESA size will usually be listed in the instruction manual, or on the manufacturer’s website, or you can follow these steps to measure yourself:

To find your VESA measurements you will need your TV and a ruler or measuring tape. Find the rectangular pattern of holes and measure the distance between hole centres, vertically then horizontally, as shown here. The resulting measurements are your VESA size. VESA sizes are always shown in millimetres (mm), for example: “600 x 400mm” or “400 x 400mm” or “200 x 200mm.”

Dot & Dab Wall Fixings

Fixings for Wood Stud Walls and Solid Walls are included with all the TV Mounts we sell, but for Dry-Lined / Dot & Dab walls, we recommend AVF Rigifix Long Heavy-Duty Fixings

Extra-long wall plugs and anchors reach through the surface plasterboard layer, bridge the gap and secure deeply into the masonry behind, leaving a secure threaded hole ready to take the supplied M6 fixing screw. Anchoring securely into all types of solid wall – including standard brick, aircrete/thermalite blocks, stone and concrete – AVF Rigifix Long Heavy Duty Fixings are the only dot & dab wall fixings approved and recommended by AVF, the UK’s number one TV Wall Mount manufacturer.
