For more than 29 years, it has been Chief Manufacturing’s goal to provide quality AV mounting solutions for residential and professional applications. As the industry leader in innovative solutions, dealers and installers know they can count on Chief for any installation need.

Challenge

Robert Paul TV, one of the fastest growing audio video installers in the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, turned to Chief on a recent project in a home in Edina, Minnesota. The customer was looking for a versatile solution for mounting flat panel TVs in the master bedroom, the family room and a basement game room.

Solution

Ben Albaugh of Robert Paul TV said he turns to Chief because he knows that he can count on Chief mounts to work and be easy to use, plus Chief has a great support staff who can answer any questions he might have with the installation. This particular home had a few environmental challenges because the house was over 30-years-old. The major installation challenge was getting wires to where they needed to be, Albaugh said. They also had to rebuild a wall in the family room, and were able to use Chief’s innovative PAC500™ In-wall Accessory to mount the display flush with the new wall for a slim, aesthetic appearance.

The mounting project consisted of seven plasma and LCD TVs. In the master bedroom, the challenge was to offset the plasma from the bed while being able to turn the screen toward the bed for easy viewing. Chief’s PDR™ Swing Arm Mount was the perfect solution, providing the needed versatility and easy movement. Another PDR was used in the family room where the customer wanted to be able to turn the display toward the kitchen for dual room viewing. A PSM™ Fixed Wall Mount was used in the lower level bedroom for a quick and easy mounting mounting solution. In the basement game room, four JWD™ Swing Arm Mounts were used with 32" LCD screens to "create a great sports feel," Albaugh said.

Benefits

Chief’s goal is to create versatile mounting solutions that benefit the end-user and the installer by being easy to use and quick to install. In the end, the customer was so pleased with the result that they have sent more business to Robert Paul TV for an additional home that they own and for a friend’s home.
