Chief Launches Five In -Wall Accessories

Chief® Manufacturing introduces two in-wall accessories for swing arm mounts, and three in-wall installation boxes that organize cables and electrical components directly behind Chief wall mounts.

Minneapolis, MN. - - (August 2006) - Chief® Manufacturing, the industry leader in mounting solutions, introduces two in -wall accessories for swing arm mounts, and three in -wall installation boxes that organize cables and electrical components directly behind Chief wall mounts.


PAC500 and MAC500
For new construction or retrofit installations, the PAC500 and MAC500 convert swing arm mounts from low -profile to absolutely no -profile, making screens appear to float on the wall. The swing arm mount is completely hidden in the wall, making this the ultimate in aesthetics for home entertainment!

The PAC500 In -Wall Accessory is designed for use with Chief's Swing Arm Mounts, the PNR™ (for 37 -60" TVs) or PWR™ (for 37 -50" TVs). This no -profile solution hides the mount completely when in the home position, while maintaining the features of the swing arm mounts - easy fingertip tilt, in -arm cable management and extreme range of motion for viewing screens from any angle. The MAC500 In -Wall Accessory is designed for use with the JWD Dual Arm Mount for 26" -40" flat panel TVs. With the MAC500, users still enjoy the swing arm's Centris™ fingertip tilt, in -arm cable management and 20" extension for flexible viewing.

PAC510, PAC515 and PAC520
Chief's new PAC510, PAC515 and PAC520 Pre -Installation Box Accessories make installing Chief wall mounts even faster and easier. These three product options allow for pre -wiring junction and signal boxes in a wide variety of projects from pre -construction to retrofit. The unique recessed design provides space to hide excess cables, surge protectors and power conditioners in the wall for a clean, simple installation. The PAC510 is for retrofit applications with flanges for clean mounting on drywall. The PAC515 is for new construction without flanges for pre -drywall installation between 16" centers, and the PAC520 is a multiple option new construction box that installs vertical on single stud or horizontal between 16" centers. Use with Chief fixed, tilt and swing arm mounts!
