What tools do we require to mount for this little project?
The answer to this question varies a little depending on the wall material and the type of installation
For a hollow block wall, specialty tools and materials to drill through the wall, prepare the wall for reinforcement and properly affix the media floating shelf are required:
Chalk line: To properly prepare the surface for reinforcement, you’ll need to mark out the areas where your tv furniture will be placed. On this particular project, I have a DeWalt Chalk Reel (45m) handy to achieve perfect straight lines over a large area.
Plum/Level/Water Level: We also kept a plum and water level handy to check for levels during the installation of the TV.
Hammer drill. A hammer drill is required because we need some extra power to get through the block wall.
Concrete Cutter: some mansory wall will require more than human strength to cut through. We also have a concrete cutter handy to cut the wall in difficult areas.
Concrete sleeve or concrete screws: We also have some set of concrete screws handy to fasten the mounting bracket securely to the block wall.
TV Wall Brackets
Pressure treated wood: mounting a large tv directly on a block wall is a huge risk, so we are installing pressure treated woods in-wall to securely hold the TVs in place.
Base Plates: for proper anchorage, we are installing 5mm steel baseplates (painted) to securely hold the woods firmly to the wall.
Plan: for a proper installation, a plan is required in order to avoid damages to existing building services and to also make the installation process easier.
