Recommended Manufacturers/ Brands of TV Wall Mounts/ Brackets
If you’re thinking about mounting your TV to the wall you’re inevitable left with the choice of what TV bracket to buy. I have already written a blog titled ‘What TV bracket do I need?’ which I recommend that you read when you’re done here, but inevitably you’re going to be left with a choice of which make/ manufacturer you should opt for and which are the best. Below I have listed all of the TV wall mounting manufacturers that I have experience with, and which are my favourites as an installer of such equipment. Naturally with most things you get what you pay for so although you may find something similar online for a fraction of the cost, I recommend getting a good bracket and this is especially true for full motion and tilting TV wall brackets. By following the recommendations below you can’t go far wrong. Let’s begin.
Best – Sanus (In My Opinion)
If you have read some of my blogs on hanging TV’s on walls and TV installations, you will already know that I love Sanus mounting brackets. In all honesty, you can’t go wrong with them, their brackets even look good and often on packaging box you often find the slogan “You will love this mount” or something along those lines. All of their brackets are super-friendly to install and they have usually thought of most things. To be honest, for normal flat to wall TV mounts I wouldn’t use a Sanus bracket as they could a bit more when all you’re looking for is for something to hold the TV in place but for larger TV’s. tilting wall brackets and full motion TV wall mounts which allow the bracket to move in multiple directions I would nearly always choose a Sanus bracket.
According to the Sanus website, they are a company based in the USA and is a division of Legrand AV.
Recommended Sanus Brackets
Sanus MF215 – 13-39” small full motion TV wall bracket
Sanus VMT5 – 37-55” tilting TV wall bracket
Sanus VLF525-EX 51-70” – Large TV full motion TV wallbracket
Sanus Stocklists/ retailers
You can usually find Sanus wall brackets at the following wholesalers. Some of these only offer a limited range so you may need to order the particular bracket that you want online.

Perhaps my second most common wall bracket I install is B-Tech. I typically only use a few of their brackets as I would usually opt fora Sanus bracket but their range is very good also. Again, they are easy to install and make for a nice robust mount. I will just say however, that some of their brackets utilise a fixing which requires a security-allen-key to be able to tighten/ undo the fixings, this type of key has a small hole in the head. This is fine when installing the brackets as they provide a couple with the mount itself but I advise keeping it safe should you need it in the future as normal allen keys can’t be used
The international head office for B-Tech is in the Midlands, UK but it also has offices in Belgium, Germany, Spain, Dubai, China, Vietnam and Singapore. B-Tech also has it’s products branded as Mountlogic, Pro-install, System 2 and Ventry.
Recommended B-Tech Brackets
B-Tech 7515 – 42” – Medium full motion wall bracket
B-Tech 8431 – 55” – Medium/ large tilting TV wall bracket
B-Tech 8225 – 39-75” – Large full motion wall bracket
B-Tech Retailer & Stocklists
B-Tech wall brackets can be purchased from the following places,I must admit after doing some research that most of the main electrical stores do not stock them so you will most likely need to order the bracket online.
Alltrade (Trade only)
B-Tech website - https://www.btechavmounts.com/
The Ventry range is also B-Tech but I have included separately as it is a bit more of a budget option, there are a wide range of brackets that are not quite as good as those specifically marketed as B-Tech but still pretty good. I confess I use some Ventry flat-to-wall TV brackets as they are still good quality and not required to do anything fancy.
Recommended Ventry TV Brackets
Ventry BTV 500 – Small/ medium flat to wall TV mount
Ventry BTV 510 – Medium/ large flat to wall TV mount
Ventry BTV 501 – Medium tilting TV wall mount.
Invision is another brand I recommend. I rarely supply these on my installations as I would either install a Sanus or B-Tech bracket and my main suppliers do not actually stock this brand but I frequently install these when customers have provided their own brackets and have been impressed with the quality of some of these.
I have to say of all of the research I have performed on different wall bracket manufacturers I was most won over by Invision and I might start making an effort to buy their products in the future or ask my suppliers to stock them. According to the Invision website, the company was setup by an engineer, Mark Rodmell in 2009 after he was unhappy with existing brackets on the market. The company is based in Manchester, UK and offers a whopping 25-year warranty on their brackets which is the longest by far that I have come across. Of all the brackets Invision is perhaps the best value for money in terms of cost.

I couldn’t find many places to purchase Invision wall brackets so you would very likely need to order these off the internet from the following places:
Invision website URL - https://www.invisiontvbrackets.com/
This is another reputable manufacturer of TV brackets, to be honest I rarely ever install these as they are higher end/relatively-expensive to buy meaning my customers rarely provide them and my suppliers do not stock them but when I have, I have always been very impressed with the quality.
The company advertises on their website that they initially opened for trading in 1941 so you would expect them to have learnt a thing or two over the years with their first TV mount for a CRT TV released in 1965 –some people did used to install these on the wall! They started selling flat-screen mounts for TV’s/ monitors back in 2003. The head office for the EMEA region is in Germany, but it also has offices in Germany, France, UAE, UK as well as the USA.
