Structured panels boast flexible mounting for stud spacing variations
HOLLY HILL, Fla. – January 4, 2018 – Metra Home Theater Group®, a leading provider of home theater products and accessories for the integration community, announces Structured Wiring Panels and TV Mounts, debuting at CES 2018 from January 9 – 12, 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Metra Home Theater Group has expanded their portfolio to include structured wiring panels, a new product category for the manufacturer. The structured panels offer flexible mounting for stud spacing variations in either a recessed or a surface mount installation. They are constructed of solid steel with a durable, white powder coat finish and include grommets and ten cable ties and mounts. Three sizes are available for 14” (CS-SP14), 20” (CS-SP20) or 28” (CS-SP28) panels. Hinged metal panel doors are sold separately, and include a lock and two keys for added security. The structured panel doors can support up to four 120mm cooling fans with preset mounting holes and integrated louvered ventilation for improved cooling. Doors are available for 14” (CS-SPD14), 20” (CS-SPD20) and 28” (CS-SPD28) panels.
Metra Home Theater Group’s new Helios TV mounts solve the problems of today’s custom integrators. “We listened to integrators who are in the field every day to see how we could adapt our products to better serve their needs. Their feedback helped us redesign our next generation of Helios TV mounts,” says Stewart Denton, manager of product development for Metra Home Theater Group.
Commercial or residential buildings can provide a challenge for TV mount installation if the standard 16” studs are not in place. To address this issue, many of the new mounts are compatible with both 16” and 24” center studs to offer a more versatile mounting solution for integrators. Two new large, full motion mounts for 42” to 84” TVs are offered with a center extension (FML642) or a side extension (FML64S). These sturdy mounts have a weight capacity of 132 pounds, a tilting angle of +5 to -15 degrees, and allow for dual stud installation with 16” or 24” center studs. The LPU64 is a new, ultra-low profile, fixed TV mount for 42” – 84” TVs that is only 14 mm (0.55”) from the wall. It has a weight capacity of 99 pounds and offers dual stud installation. The FMM44 is a full motion mount for medium sized TVs from 26” to 60”, with a weight capacity of 66 pounds and single stud installation. The FM44IW is a 400×400 full motion mount designed for in-wall installations between 16” center studs. It fits TVs from 32” to 60” and has a weight capacity of 75 pounds.
