Why mounting is an important factor

Depending on the size and application mounting a monitor can be difficult. Careful planning and preparation should be done when looking at mounting options so that the monitor will fit properly into the application and be mounted safely.

Large LCD monitors can be very heavy and mounting it should be done carefully so that it is securely fitted in place, there are a wide range of monitor brackets that can support large monitors and displays but always double check the max loading weight for the bracket.

Mounting Options and application

When looking at mounting options for an LCD monitor there are a few things to take into consideration. The application of the display can change how it will be mounted and also powered.

For a simple wall mounted display it is just a case of finding a bracket that will fit the monitor and take it’s weight depending on the size of the display. Where as if you wanted to mount a monitor in the back of a car this can change how it will be mounted and also powered as you would need to run it off a battery.

After looking at where you want to mount the display you can start planning and looking at the best mounting options for your application and LCD display.

LCD Display Brackets

There are plenty of brackets to securely fit your monitor into your application, just take care that the bracket will be able to safely support the weight of the monitor, for larger heavier display this is more important. If the bracket cant support the weight of the monitor then it could easily damage the monitor when falling off the bracket and also is a health and safety hazard for anything under the monitor.

When looking at brackets always double check the loading weight and that it will be able to safely support the monitor and keep it in place. If you have a heavy monitor and need to mount it in place then careful planning should also go into lifting the monitor into the bracket or where ever it is being mounted, this is too reduce the risk of someone getting hurt in the process and to make sure that the monitor doesn’t get damaged.

Another thing to always look out for is to always check that the bracket will fit your monitor. Most monitors have VESA mounting holes on the back, some vary in size but they are usually 100mm VESA holes depending on the size of the display, the larger the monitor usually means larger VESA holes.

To the left is an example if how a small 17″ LCD display would be mounted using the VESA holes on the back of the display and also an move-able arm mount. This is a great example of LCD display mounting.

As you can see from the images 4 screws are used to attach the arm mount to the back of the monitor using the 4 VESA holes. As this is only a relatively small monitor weight wouldn’t be a big factor and this arm bracket is easily able to hold the monitor in place.
