We'd like to fix a flat panel 15"-17" integrated tv onto a wall that
has been covered with ~10cm thick foam backed plasterboard in our
kitchen/breakfast room. The wall behind the foam-backed plasterboard
is an external brick wall.
We'd like to use a hinged wall bracket so that it can be angled either
towards the kitchen (for the wife while cooking) or to the other side
(so we can watch while eating).
This is the kind of bracket I was hoping to use:
hinged wall brackets I have seen have quite small wall footprints,
and I'm concerned about a) whether I will be able to fit it stably,
and b) how I should go about fitting the bracket.
I'm not sure whether to use some kind of rawl plug that is just seated
in the foam behind the plasterboard, or whether to try to drill
further, back into the brick. I'm also concerned whether the weight of
the bracket + tv will "cut" down into the foam and plasterboard.
Can anyone please advise? Thanks very much.
