Two TV Frame Options, Two Totally Different Looks…

FlatScreen Framing has two different manufacturing options when it comes to buying an HDTV frame.  Option #1 (wall mount) and Option #2 (tv mount). Both are beautiful in their own right and a matter of personal preference as to what works best for your particular situation.  There are distinct differences between the two options.

Option #1 (wall mount):

This option is a wall mounted frame.  The frame gives your tv a “boxed in” look where all angles of the tv are covered.  From either side of the tv there will be no visual access to the back of the tv.  The frame is actually mounted to the wall by a french cleat (provided to you by FSF).  Similar to the way you would hang a large picture frame.

*Please note that with ALL OPT1 tv frames, there will be a space, appx. 3/8″ around the entire tv before the frame starts.  This allows for heat ventilation and hanging.

Option #2 (tv mount):

This option is a HDTV mounted frame.  This frame actually straps directly to your tv and usually does not go all the way back to the wall behind.  The tv and frame will co-exist and operate as one unit.  So from the side of the tv there will be a limited view of the back of the television.  This option tends to work great with newer, thinner hdtv’s.  And gives our clients more options as far as profiles are concerned.  All of our “Collection” profiles work well with Option #2 frames.


We want to make this process as enjoyable as possible.  With no added effort needed on your part.  That is why FSF ships all of our tv frames fully assembled.  Each tv frame can be installed in minutes will little to no experience required.
