MantelMount, a manufacturer for high-on-the-wall television mounting (such as over a fireplace), announced its new vendor partnership with Nationwide Marketing Group, which is a national buying, marketing and business support organization for independent appliance, electronics, furniture and bedding retailers.
Nationwide’s 14,000 member stores now have access to mounting solutions that address significant pain points felt by a huge portion of the market. It also represents new high-margin-dollar sales opportunities for all three Nationwide verticals: Home Technology Integration Specialists, Appliance retailers, and Furniture & Bedding retailers.
With flat panel TVs affordably pushing over 65 inches and fireplace mantel heights averaging over 4.5 feet, watching TV can feel like sitting in the front row of a movie theater. As viewers crane their neck upward for extended periods, the result can be chronic neck pain and headaches, at the same time viewing at awkward angles can degrade picture quality. MantelMount solves these issues by allowing anyone to easily pull a large flat screen TV out-and-down off the wall to eye-level and swivel it left or right.
MantelMount’s lineup of manual and motorized mounts includes the popular MM860 Robotic Mount with home automation. Once the user turns the TV on, it automatically drops and swivels the TV to a pre-set position.
The MM860 works with the most popular automation control systems, including Control4, Crestron, Elan, Logitech, RTI, Savant, and URC.
