There is a common misconception that Plasma/LCD TVs cannot be placed above fireplaces or wall mounted onto chimney breasts. However, when choosing an installation service from Home Entertainment Direct, you can be assured that we have a wealth of experience and expertise mounting TVs above fires. We can advise on height, structural and heat considerations, and provide complete concealment and integration of all AV and mains cables. In most situations flatscreen TVs CAN be safely positioned above the fireplace – after all, they are generally located centrally in most rooms which tend to be the ideal viewing position for the TV as well.
For installation of tvs above log burners then more specialist structural and fire safety requirements need to be considered.
We can provide a unique and custom installation service for In-Wall Television. We can offer custom design and build of new false wall chimney breasts to house in-wall fires and TVs which provide a stunning and contemporary new feature to the home. Alternatively even the installation of a new fire surround allows re-positioning of TVs to a more comfortable viewing height. Please contact us for further details and a consultation
