Chief no-profile swing arm mount pulls another tech award

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — Chief Manufacturing, a provider of projector, monitor and flat-panel TV mounting solutions, has announced that the PIWRF No-Profile In-Wall Swing Arm wall mount has received multiple product awards in 2008 and 2009.
Product awards include:
• 2009 CEA TecHome Mark of Excellence: Best Installation Product • 2008 CEDIA Electronic Lifestyles: Best New Product • 2008-2009 ADEX: Gold Award for Design Excellence • 2008 HDI (Russia): Product of the Year • 2007 Audioholics: Best of Show
Jay Dittmer, principal engineer, designed the PIWRFU because customers were “looking for a mount that can pivot, tilt, hug tight to the wall, offer room for the electrical box and easily pull from the wall — all while being innovative and different from the other swing arms on the market,” he said. “The biggest challenge was space, and making the mount narrow enough to fit between the studs and provide lateral shift while providing space for electrical outlets.”
The PIWRF simplifies flat panel installation, allowing perfect TV centering at any position within a 16-inch stud system. The patent-pending design eliminates the need to cut into studs or install headers, making it easy to achieve no-profile mounting. Each mount offers a full set of features including height adjustment and lateral shift to simplify installation and provide increased flexibility for the end-user. The sleek design of the PIWRF includes numerous patented features, like Centris fingertip tilt to achieve the ultimate viewing angle while remaining low profile. The mount ships as a complete in-wall swing arm with zero assembly required.
