Can I Space My Screen Out Farther From The Wall?

Elite offers a complete package, but sometimes, our customers add their own elements to the installation so that it will be perfect for their unique circumstances. Here, a customer is interested in customizing his wall installation to increase the spacing a little bit.

3:50:34 PM          Mitch - Hi, I'm looking at the starling tab tension 2- 100 inch screen and i noticed that the screen is only 2 inches away from the wall.

3:50:53 PM          Mitch - is there a way to increase that by half an inch?

3:51:30 PM                 Jaime.l - The screen brackets are spaced 2" out from the wall as a standard distance to clear the wall it’s mounted on but there are ways to increase it.

3:52:01 PM                 Jaime.l - If you want to go a half inch further, all you would need to do is add a spacer in between the wall and bracket.  I recommend getting a longer wood bolt and make sure you anchor it into your wall stud.

3:57:00 PM                 Jaime.l - You can easily find these items in any hardware store.  If you want to make your own spacers, I recommend a stout hardwood or plywood painted to match the interior and cut modestly to match the footprint of your installation bracket.

3:57:45 PM          Mitch - Sounds easy enough. I have ½ in plywood I can measure to fit the wall mount, cut it, then paint. Once it dries, I’ll run a ¼ inch  x 4 inch wood screw to seat it.

3:58:21 PM                 Jaime.l - That is exactly what I’d recommend.  Is there anything else I can do for you?

3:58:26 PM          Mitch - Nope, I’ve got this from here.

3:58:26 PM                 Jaime.l - I’m glad to be of help. Thank you for choosing Elite Screens.
