Installation to Double Wood Stud Wall

WARNING

Installer must verify that the supporting surface will safely support the combined load of the equipment and all attached hardware and components.

Tighten wood screws so that wall plate is firmly attached, but do not overtighten. Overtightening can damage the screws, greatly reducing their holding power.

Never tighten in excess of 80 in. • lb (9 N.M.).

Make sure that mounting screws are anchored into the center of the stud. The use of an "edge to edge" stud finder is highly recommended.

Hardware provided is for attachment of mount through standard thickness drywall or plaster into wood studs. Installers are responsible to provide hardware for other types of mounting situations.

 

NOTE: If mounting equipment weighing greater than 100 lbs, triple stud mounting is strongly recommended.

 

Skip to page 5.

1

Wall plate (A) can be mounted to two studs that are 16" apart. Use a stud finder to locate the edges of the studs.

Use of an edge-to-edge stud finder is highly recommended. Based on their edges, draw a vertical line down each

stud’s center. Place wall plate on wall as a template. The top mounting slots should be located above the desired screen center as shown in figure 1.1. Note: Screen tilt will determine wall plate location. Level plate, and mark the center of the two mounting holes. Make sure that the mounting holes are on the stud centerlines. Drill two 5/32"

(4 mm) dia. holes 2-1/2" (65 mm) deep. Make sure that the wall plate is level, secure it using two #14 x 2.5" wood screws (C) as shown in figure 1.2.

Installation to Triple Wood Stud Wall

WARNING

Installer must verify that the supporting surface will safely support the combined load of the equipment and all attached hardware and components.

Tighten wood screws so that wall plate is firmly attached, but do not overtighten. Overtightening can damage the screws, greatly reducing their holding power.

Never tighten in excess of 80 in. • lb (9 N.M.).

Wall plate (A) can be mounted to three studs that are 16" apart. Use a stud finder to locate the edges of the studs.

Use of an edge-to-edge stud finder is highly recommended. Based on their edges, draw a vertical line down each

stud’s center. Place wall plate on wall as a template. The top mounting slots should be located above the desired screen center as shown in figure 1.3. Note: Screen tilt will determine wall plate location. Level plate, and mark the center of the six mounting holes. Make sure that the mounting holes are on the stud centerlines. Drill six 5/32"

(4 mm) dia. holes 2-1/2" (65 mm) deep. Make sure that the wall plate is level, secure it using six #14 x 2.5" wood screws (C) as shown in figure 1.4.

NOTE: When mounting equipment weighing greater than 100 lbs, triple stud mounting is strongly recommended. If mounting to two studs, wall plate may be mounted up to 4" (102 mm) off-center as shown in figure 1.5.

Peerless Industries PARAMOUNT PFT640, PARAMOUNT PFT660 User Manual

Installation to Solid Concrete or Cinder Block

WARNING

When installing Peerless wall mounts on cinder block, verify that you have a minimum of 1-3/8" of actual concrete thickness in the hole to be used for the concrete anchors. Do not drill into mortar joints! Be sure to mount in a solid part of the block, generally 1" minimum from the side of the block. Cinder block must meet ASTM C-90 specifications. It is suggested that a standard electric drill on slow setting is used to drill the hole instead of a hammer drill to avoid breaking out the back of the hole when entering a void or cavity.

Concrete must be 2000 psi density minimum. Lighter density concrete may not hold concrete anchor.

Make sure that the supporting surface will safely support the combined load of the equipment and all attached hardware and components.

Installing Vertical Brackets

WARNING

Tighten screws so adapter brackets are firmly attached. Do not tighten with excessive force. Overtightening can cause stress damage to screws, greatly reducing their holding power and possibly causing screw heads to become detached. Tighten to 40 in. • lb (4.5 N.M.) maximum torque.

If screws don't get three complete turns in the screen inserts or if screws bottom out and bracket is still not tightly secured, damage may occur to screen or product may fail.

To prevent scratching the screen, set a cloth on a flat, level surface that will support the weight of the screen. Place 2 screen face side down. If screen has knobs on the back, remove them to allow the adapter brackets to be attached.

Place vertical brackets (B) on back of screen. Align to holes, and center on back of screen as shown in figure 2.1. Attach the vertical brackets to the back of the screen using the appropriate combination of screws, multi-washers, and spacers as shown in figure 2.3. NOTE: Be sure to attach vertical brackets with wall support brackets positioned at the bottom of screen as shown in figure 2.1.

NOTE: Top and bottom mounting holes must be used for attaching brackets. Middle holes should also be used where the fasteners and screens allow.

Verify that all holes are properly aligned, and then tighten screws using a phillips screwdriver.
