Securing TVs in the event of an earthquake is an important consideration for homes and commercial buildings. Simple anti-tip straps are quite effective for homes and when the TV is placed on top of a TV cabinet. In commercial buildings, TVs are usually mounted on the wall or on ceiling pole mounts. Australian building regulations specify that non-structural building elements must be restrained. During an earthquake, non-structural elements pose an injury risk as well as damaging the building, causing electrical short-circuit, or blocking the exit paths.
We have recently partnered with an independent seismic specialist to enable us to have seismic restraint certification for our TV mounts. For our first project, we manufactured 160 of these custom ceiling mounts for AMP in collaboration with WSP consultants and Star Group.
These TV mounts are manufactured with the required seismic struts to comply with the Australian building regulations. They also feature a slide-out tray for easy and fast installation and servicing of AV equipment and a protective shroud.
Our one-stop-shop manufacturing and certification capability is a convenient and efficient way for consultants and AV integrators to design and manufacture their seismic restraint certified TV and projector mounts here in Australia.
