A Tilting Bracket is a bracket is much like a flat bracket however with the addition of a tilt feature. These brackets are perfect for the living room or for the bedroom so you’re able to tilt the screen down towards the sofa or bed to achieve the perfect viewing angle.

A Cantilever Bracket is a bracket which offers the most versatility. These brackets feature the ability to pull off the wall and be rotated, making them the perfect bracket for corners, alcoves or easy access to the rear of the screen for cables.

A Motorised Bracket offers the same features as the Cantilever bracket but with one major addition, the ability to move and control the bracket remotely without the need of manually moving it.
