April 5, 2007 -- Peerless Industries, Inc., a provider of professional-grade audio/visual mounting products, has introduced its Flat Panel Conversion Kits (PLCK-UNL, PLCK-1), which enable installers to use existing CRT wall and ceiling hardware to mount a flat panel in the same location and with the same viewing angle as a CRT TV.
The company calls the kit an "ideal retrofit solution that reduces installation time, renovation costs and is easy to order and specify for any restaurant, bar, health club, classroom or stadium application."
"In order to keep up with technology trends many people are faced with renovation costs involved in upgrading form CRT TV's to flat panels," says Justin Sabetti, product manager for Peerless Industries. "We developed the industry's first mounting solution which enables installers to use existing CRT mount components and convert them for use with flat panels, saving much of the time required for a regular installation."
The kit supports the company's single arm, double arm, ceiling or multi-display Jumbo mount configurations to fit virtually any flat panel screen up to 50 inches. Both the PLCK-UNL, PLCK-1 kits enable up to 20 degrees tilt adjustment and 360 degrees of swivel to achieve the perfect viewing angle.
In addition, an extension column connector is supplied to ensure compatibility with any 1-1/2 NPT pipe for ceiling applications. The PLCK-UNL includes a universal adapter plate for 32-inch to 50-inch TVs, providing a one-box retrofit solution. PLCK-1 offers the option for either portrait or landscape orientation with screen-specific adapter plates (sold separately).
Peerless' PLCK-UNL and PLCK-1 Flat Panel Conversion Kits are now available at list prices of $339 (PLCK-UNL) and $224 (PLCK-1).
