Can you Wall mount onto a Chimley breast with gas fire below


Standard Member

I am looking for a TV that I can watch in the Dining room I plan to wall mount the TV onto a Chimley breast, which will have a built in Gas fire at the bottom.

Does any one know if this is possible to do ?

We need to be able to watch the TV from different angles so thought the Plasmas would be better then the lcd 's.

Any recommendations I was looking at the 37" Panasonics.

I have - although I hasten to add that I never use the gas fire below as I have radiators in the room.

I'm not sure I would recommend it if you have a fire below that you actually use regularly... especially if there is no guard of any kind (I also have a fairly solid mantlepiece below the TV that would provide some protection from heat if anyone did put the fire on).

If you use the fire you could place a thermometer on the wall where you intend to hang the TV to see what kind of temperature it reaches (and check against the TV specs for high/low operating temperatures) but my inclination would be not to do it if you use the fire.

Yes, mine has been mounted this way for 2 or 3 years, my gas fire has a back boiler which is on everyday. I have a floating shelf below the TV (above the fireplace) with my centre speaker on and this must deflect rising hot air.
