Description

    RELATED APPLICATIONS
  • [0001]
    This application claims the benefit of U.S. Provisional Application No. 60/462,371, filed on Apr. 11, 2003, hereby incorporated herein in its entirety by reference.
  • TECHNICAL FIELD
  • [0002]
    The present invention relates to mounting brackets. More particularly, the present invention relates to mounting brackets for plasma flat panel displays.
  • BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • [0003]
    Plasma flat panel displays are typically found in facilities that accommodate great numbers of people on a temporary basis, such as airports, convention centers, and sport facilities. There are a large number of manufacturers of such panels. Each manufacturer typically provides mounting holes in the rear surface of the panel for mounting of the panel to a panel mount. There is no standard among panel manufacturers for the location, size, and number of such mounting bores. Accordingly, a provider of a mount for mounting the panel in a facility must accommodate almost as many mounting bore arrangements, as there are manufacturers of panels. At present, there are about 200 different panel models from a large number of panel manufacturers. This necessitates a custom set of mounting brackets for each such model. As can be easily imaged, the cost of providing such custom brackets significantly drives up the cost of the mount for mounting the panel.
  • [0004]
    Previous attempts made by others to produce a universal mounting system have not been filly successful. Previous devices typically lack the structural rigidity required to withstand seismic events such as earthquakes. In addition, such devices often have members that project outwardly past the margins of the display, leading to an unattractive, cluttered appearance.
  • [0005]
    What is needed in the industry is a relatively limited number of brackets that can accommodate the numerous number of models of panels without being customized for a particular model. Such brackets would greatly reduce the cost of mounting the panels in a facility.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • [0006]
    The present invention substantially meets the aforementioned needs of the industry. Two sets of mount brackets, each having two individual brackets provide for mounting more than two hundred models of panels. Each set of mount brackets has a plurality of bores defined therein, such bores being spaced and sized to accommodate the plurality of panels. Each of the brackets additionally has at least two bores defined therein for bolting the respective bracket to a mount. Use of the mount brackets of the present invention greatly simplifies mounting of a great number of different panels in a facility.
  • [0007]
    In accordance with the invention, the system includes a mount bracket set for mounting a plurality of known flat panel displays by means of a mount. Each flat panel display has a unique set of bores for mounting the flat panel display to the mount bracket set by means of bolts disposed therein. The mount bracket set includes a pair of mount brackets operably coupleable to the mount and fixedly coupleable to the flat panel display, and a substantially planar flat plate. The plate has a series of mounting bores defined therein for mounting each mount bracket independently to the flat panel display. The mounting bores are arranged so that when the mount brackets are operably coupled to the mount, a portion of the mounting bores are in registry with the flat panel display unique set of bores for mounting each flat panel display of the plurality of known flat panel displays to the mount bracket.
  • [0008]
    The system has sufficient structural rigidity to pass required seismic testing, which may include GR-63-CORE testing. In addition, the system has a pleasing aesthetic appearance without laterally projecting frames or bracket pieces.
