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.

1

Wall plate (AA) 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 2.5" (65 mm) above the desired screen center as shown in figure 1.1. Level plate, and mark the center of the four mounting holes. Make sure that the mounting holes are on the stud centerlines. Drill four 5/32" (4 mm) dia. holes 2-1/2" (65 mm) deep. Make sure that the wall plate is level, secure it using four #14 x 2.5" wood screws (DD) as shown in figure 1.2.

Skip to step 2.

Peerless Industries PARAMOUNT PT640 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.

1

Make sure that wall plate (AA) is level, use it as a

template to mark four mounting holes. The top

mounting hole should be 2.5" (65 mm) above the desired screen center as shown in fig. 1.1 on page 4. Drill four 1/4" (6 mm) dia. holes to a minimum depth of 2.5" (65 mm). Insert anchors (EE) in holes flush with wall as shown (right). Place wall plate over anchors and secure with #14 x 2.5" screws (DD). Level, then tighten all fasteners.

WARNING

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

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

WARNING

Always attach concrete anchors directly to loadbearing concrete.

Never attach concrete anchors to concrete covered with plaster, drywall, or other finishing material. If mounting to concrete surfaces covered with a finishing surface is unavoidable, the finishing surface must be counterbored as shown below. Be sure concrete anchors do not pull away from concrete when tightening screws. If plaster/drywall is thicker than 5/8", custom fasteners must be supplied by installer.

Attaching Tilt Brackets to Screen using Baffled Fastener Pack

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.

2

To prevent scratching the screen, set a cloth on a flat, level surface that will support the weight of the screen. Place screen

face side down. Refer to screen manufacturers instructions or customer service, for removing any knobs, base, cover, or

screw(s) on the back of the screen to prepare mounting. These need to be removed to allow the adapter brackets to be attached. Select the small, medium, large or extra large screws from the baffled fastener pack then attach adapter brackets to screen following figure 2.1 or 2.2.

NOTE: Be sure to attach adapter brackets with handles facing outward as shown below.

NOTE: Top and bottom mounting holes on screen 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.

For Flat Back Screen

2-1 Refer to Screen Compatibility Chart to determine the proper fastener to use. Visit www.peerlessmounts.com/1 for a full screen compatibility chart for this mount.

Begin with the shortest length screw, hand thread through washer and adapter bracket into screen as shown below. Screw must make at least three full turns into the mounting hole and fit snug into place. Do not over tighten. If screw cannot make three full turns into the screen, select a longer length screw from the baffled fastener pack. Repeat for remaining mounting holes, level brackets and tighten screws.

NOTE: Spacers may not be used, depending upon the type of screen.

tension in tilt brackets (BB & CC) by rotating

ratchet handle. NOTE: If obstruction prevents ratchet handle from rotating, pull handle out while turning will allow handle to reposition without tightening. Release and turn handle to tighten or loosen.

Mounting Screen: Ratchet handle must be in the up or down position or interference will occur while hooking tilt brackets to wall plate (AA). Slowly hook tilt brackets (BB & CC) onto wall plate (AA) and swing screen down as shown in fig. 3.1. Tilt bracket hooks must fully engage wall plate as shown in detail 1. Using phillips screw driver, turn safety screws on tilt brackets (BB & CC) clockwise till screw tip securely contacts wall plate as shown in cross section.

Screen Adjustment: Screen can be adjusted horizontally by loosening safety screws on tilt brackets (BB & CC) three full turns with phillips screw driver. Adjust screen as shown in fig. 3.2. Tighten safety screws on tilt brackets till screw tip securely contacts wall plate as shown in cross section.
