One of the questions asked most frequently by customers selecting TV lift furniture is whether their TV will work or if a specific TV model must be used. At Wildwood, we use one of the most compact and versatile lift mechanisms available in order to maintain both the beauty and functionality of the furniture. In determining whether your TV will work with the lift mechanism, four metrics should be considered including the TV size, weight, depth, and VESA pattern.
Our standard TV lift mechanism will work with 32’’ to 45″ TVs.
Our deluxe mechanism will work with TVs up to 50″ (the deluxe mechanism is $259 extra)
Our TV lift mechanism will lift up to 145 lbs.
Any TV depth can be accommodated as long as each of the other parameters listed here are met.
However, it should be noted that the deeper the TV, the deeper the TV bed footboard or TV lift cabinet. For TV lift beds, we recommend using a TV with a depth of 3’’ or less in order to maintain the look of the bed. If a TV that is deeper than this is used, then the
footboard of the TV lift bed, which houses the TV, may begin to look more like a cabinet rather than a footboard, however, this is a matter of personal preference.
On the back of any mountable flat screen TV you will see a set of four holes used to mount the TV to the wall or TV lift mechanism. This pattern of holes is often referred to as the VESA pattern. VESA (Video Electronics Standard Association) is the organization that has established standard TV mounting hole patterns used in the flat screen TV industry. VESA standards are listed in millimeters and represent the distance horizontally and vertically between mounting holes. For example, a VESA standard of 400 x 200 represents a set of mounting holes that are 400 mm apart horizontally by 200 mm vertically (from the center of the mounting holes). Our TV lift mechanism accommodates the following VESA standards: 400×300, 400×200, 400×100, 300×300, 200×200, 200×100, and 100×100. To verify that your TV fits each of the parameters listed above, we recommend searching for the manufacturer’s specifications on the TV box or online as this is the most fool-proof way to obtain accurate measurements. If you are unable to locate the manufacturer’s specifications you may measure your TV manually, however, care should be taken to obtain accurate measurements in order to ensure that your TV lift furniture will work properly.
Don’t want to worry about whether your TV will work? Many of our customers don’t want to worry about whether their TV will work or don’t already have a flat screen TV that they plan on using. For customer convenience we also sell a number of TVs that are proven to work with our TV lift furniture. These TVs can be seen at our TVs page.
