OmniMount Revamps Wall Furniture Designed to Manage Components Near Ultrathin TVs

OmniMount is announcing four new wall furniture pieces with enhanced functionality, performance and a fresh new appearance, targeted at installers looking for a quick component solution and retailers seeking unique furniture options.

Phoenix, AZ - August 9, 2011 - OmniMount, the global leader in consumer and commercial A/V solutions, is announcing four new wall furniture pieces with enhanced functionality, performance and a fresh new appearance, targeted at installers looking for a quick component solution and retailers seeking unique furniture options. The Blade1 and Blade2 are single - and double -shelf wall furniture pieces with one -piece frames for fast installation. The Mod1 is a refined single -shelf unit that provides ample space for component management in a small retail -friendly package, and the Mod1FP links together a TV wall mount and Mod1 component shelf for a complete TV and component wall solution.


The Blade1 and Blade2 are designed with switchblade -like shelves that can be easily mounted by a single installer. Each offers hassle free cable and component management and can be used with a TV or as a standalone piece. The 1.2 -inch profile complements ultrathin TVs and each shelf supports up to 35 pounds.

The Mod1 wall furniture shelf can be used alone or stacked with additional units to organize one or more components near a flat panel. The spine has a slim .94 -inch mounting profile and 12.5 -inch deep shelf that supports up to 30 pounds, suitable for today's common gaming and video components.

The Mod1FP links a Mod1 wall furniture shelf with a low profile flat panel wall mount, making it easier than ever to perfectly align a TV above a component. The cable management channel allows cables to be routed between the TV and component, and further concealed to the floor or power source. The Mod1FP provides an alternative to running cables through a wall, making it ideally suited for block -wall applications.

Wall furniture offers unique attachment opportunities for both installers and retailers. A/V installers can provide an additional service to end users by managing components post mount install, without the need to travel with bulky furniture or rack systems. Retailers benefit from the unique category, do -it -yourself installation features and compact retail -friendly packages.

"Wall furniture is an important category for retailers and installers alike, as consumers ask for components to be positioned near their wall mounted TVs," said Zach Eyman, general manager of furniture for OmniMount. "With our latest additions we've focused on ultrathin profiles and quick installations, with designs that are great for use in the states or internationally."

Proudly designed and engineered in the USA, the Blade1, Blade2, Mod1 and Mod1FP are natural add -on pieces to flat panel installations. Blade1, Blade2 and Mod1 are available and shipping now, offered at MSRPs of US$99.95, US$199.95 and US$49.95, respectively. Mod1FP will be available and shipping in Q4, priced at US$149.95.
