I believe there are a number of those brackets for sale in the big bix shops as standard. Some will extend 3 feet with rotation.

Question on the above - real fire with chimney?

That can't be a real fire. No hearth. I am surprised that isn't code even with a gas log.

That IS a real fire w/ stainless flue and IS within code and manuufacturers recommendations. Believe me, I checked at the very start. There is a solid piece of glass that you can not see. [img]../images/emoticons/thumbsup.gif[/img]

Bracket is a Chief Flat Panel Mount.

Be advised, this mount will run close to $1000.00

I will only mount a flat panel on a UL approved stand or wall bracket. When UL first started testing panel mounting thingies a crap load of panels hit the floor. No kidding, many stands and mounts came up short, didn't pass. UL doesn’t care that the panel gets creamed. Their concern with a falling panel is two fold; (1) personal injury (I guess it hurts when one falls on you), and (2) it can start an electrical fire and the room burning. UL is really, really big on not having things start the room burning.

When I was looking for a panel mount I realized I could tell the UL approved mounts by the way they were built. If it looked like it will support a plasma display AND the engine block it was mounted to, it is probably UL approved.

It doesn't say it on their website but the Chief brand of wall mounts for displays are listed with UL, i.e. I would trust them with my flat panel display.

My reason for asking about the fire is that, if it was real and that was a real flue and chimney, there will probably be heat in that alcove, made more so by the TV being set in flush. Don't you run the risk of over heating the TV - especially if it is on while flush in the alcove?

The gas fireplace flues of today put out very little heat. Most of it is contained within the unit itself with the use of baffles. They are double lined and the manufacturer demands a min. 1" and sometimes 3" clearance to combustible materials, to which we hold true, that being said, you can hold your hand on the outer liner with the fire on high and feel very little change in surface temp. of the outer liner.

Additionally, as Eyeball pointed out, why hang a $3500+ unit on a crappy mount? The Chief mounts are the best! Before we hung the plasma, I extended the arms out and did a pull up. I weigh 215. Lastly, all that don't mean squat without the proper support in the wall.

I'm surprised no one said anything about the bee's having sex in pic #1 [img]../images/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
